Noise - the occasional sheep or car.
Light - 3 miles away from nearest lamp light! - absolutely none at night, save moon light and tiny fairy lights on potty cabin. Fantastic for star gazing.
Traffic - virtually none as site is near the end of a dead end single track lane.
View - sensational view from lakeside.

Very friendly hosts. Lovely campsite in a fabulous location
Very beautiful. Is " dream land" for those how love camping! We were sorry because we couldn't stay more then 4 nights.
Thank you very much Chrissie.
Next year we hope we could stay 7 nights :)
Le site du Gamping est réellement exceptionnel! Nous regrettons juste de n'être pas resté plus longtemps: c'est calme, superbe, très bien aménagé. Un petit coin table couvert nous a bien servi lors des averses et le réveil au bord du lac est grandiose... Nous recommandons sincèrement cet emplacement.
Beautiful memories! We'll be back for sure. X x x
Simply perfect camping spot. Spent 3 days there and met Merv who was massively helpful and friendly. The setting is amazing and the space perfect for Our campervan awning and energetic family. Thanks a load guys and we will be back!
Located in a lovely part of the country it was great to have a private place to camp and access to a toilet. Host welcomed us on arrival and checked that we had everything we needed. Note that the ground is very rocky and quite difficult to get tent pegs in. Lots of midges at dusk so bring insect repellent and cover up. It would have been lovely to set up camp down by the lake but with the bad weather we decided to camp up the top next to the car instead of carrying all our things down in the rain. This was not as scenic but it was only a short walk down to the lake. Site seemed fairly secure for large dogs but our small terriers kept sneaking through the fence onto the road so we kept them on the lead after dark. Would recommend this site for short stays
What a wonderful, peaceful campsite! The views are amazing and our two boys enjoyed paddling in the (freezing cold) lake. The location is beautiful and if the weather hadn't been quite so wet we would've spent more time just exploring locally. The facilities are basic but the composting toilet was spotless. Chrissie is a lovely host and couldn't have been more friendly or welcoming. We would love to come back one day.
Everything we were looking for but didnt think we would ever find. Not sure we can go back to big comercial campsites again!
Chrissie and Murph are 2 of the nicest people we have had the pleasure of meeting. They made are stay an unforgettable experience and where always there for anything we needed. With regards to the land, the camping area is spectacular, right on the waters edge of Llyn Crafnant. Even after we had said goodbye, Murph assisted in a situation with our car and came to help us immediately which we were extremely grateful for. Would recommend to anyone, and we can’t wait to return in the near future!
Christie was absent during our stay there, but her husband came to meet us. He is very kind and made sure everything went well. The ground is very well located and we definitely recommand anybody to stay there!
Fantastic weekend of camping and fly fishing. The site could not have been better, we received a warm welcome from our host on arrival who took time to explain what was available to us over the weekend.
This is a really cosy little site, very close to the fishing and surrounded by beautiful welsh countryside.
Amenities - Good
Well supported by your hosts.
Can't wait for our next visit - really relaxing venue.
Lovely location, hosts although not able to welcome us in person prepared the site for our visit and sent welcome email.
The area is fantastic, the views from both pitches are wild and wonderful, with the ability to camp almost right on the lakes edge you get a location rarely available to anyone else for camping.
The facilities are as described, the tap and the one chemical toilet in an outhouse style building. For a Semi-wild camping experience it gets 5 stars from me!
What an amazing camping location. By far one of our favourites. Incredible scenery, a real opportunity to 'get away from it all' and a paradise playground for the children. Without the noise of traffic and lots of other people around you, you can really appreciate the sounds and splendour of your surroundings. You really do feel like you are the only ones there to enjoy the lake and area in all its glory whilst feeling totalling safe and private. We had a thoroughly warm welcome from Chris and her husband; couldn't of been more helpful. Would thoroughly recommend Chrissie's site for those that truly enjoy the outdoors, the beauty of North Wales and who just wants to get away from those really busy campsites where you feel like you are one of a crowd. Would absolutely have no concern about camping by myself. I have marked outstanding for cleanliness based on the basic facilities there (a toilet)...really you don't need much else! Thank you Chrissie for sharing your land; it is a very special location.
