We are spending a week here. The location is ideal for so much around us. The owner keeps a lovely site, clean tidy and very welcoming. If we were to come back to this area we would not hesitate to book back in here.

A small but well placed campsite just outside Llanberis. There is a pub just 5 minutes walk away serving good food & the staff are friendly & welcoming. There is a bakery just across the road from the site, and shops in the village which is about 15 minutes walk. Emrys, the site owner, is one of the most friendly...

Come to Llys Derwen as soon as you can, the views are spectacular, the site is immaculate and flat!!! No sleeping sideways or cups sliding off tables, a quiet night sleep on well looked after land.
