  • "Had a fabulous week away at this caravan."

    Stayed on the site many times before and this was by far the best view even when the weather wasn't good you didn't mind with that view. Really comfy bed but the sofa is as with all caravans a bit hard. Everything you needed was there, will definitely be booking again.

  • "Gwel y mor is a lovely, clean and well maintained property that has everything you need for a great holiday."

    The views from the property are simply stunning no matter what the weather is like. Sunrise and sunset lovers won't be disappointed! The site itself has excellent facilities including the outdoor heated pool, bar and restaurant. The Sunday lunch is a must here! The staff are friendly. Can't recommend this accommodation enough. Thank you

  • "Lovely caravan, views are fantastic, great location."

    However if you have walking difficulties this caravan is sited at the top of a very steep plot, this should be noted in the listing. The site is outstanding heated swimming pool and only 5 min drive from Barmouth. Caravan was spotlessly clean and tidy, lovely inside, beds really comfy. It didn’t have an indoor, doormat, so I had to buy one. I found this a little strange for a caravan. No welcome pack, no little touches. No practical mirror in the main bathroom, it was in the shower and you had to be 6ft to see through it. Would have been nice to have an additional TV in the main bedroom, looked like it had one, at some stage. Maybe also provide extra bin bags, because one for a whole week isn’t enough. Apart from the above this is a lovely caravan, but could be so special if little touches were added.

    1 small thing we did miss, was there was no Drainer for the washed Crockery to stand it in. but we managed this ok. Just a small item !! Everything else was spot on , and thank you to the Owners for such a lovely dwelling place to be in. Mr & Mrs A &B Farrington

    The property was clean, well maintained, and situated on a lovely, well looked after plot. We enjoyed our short break here, lovely views and close to the beach.. perfect little break. We would consider coming back for longer :)

  • "Lovely caravan with fabulous view."

    The site is very steep. The steps next to to the caravan itself would benefit from a handrail.

  • "Clean well maintained and convenient layout."

    Great view from front window. Outside space looked very good with 2 lovely places to sit and enjoy the view, we were there in December so didn’t get chance to use them.

  • "The caravan was spotless and very spacious."

    The view is amazing and the location is great, very handy for Barmouth and the local train station to get out and about along the coast. The owner rang to check everything was ok which was very kind of him. The only improvements could be provision of an oven glove, a small pan and perhaps reading lamps in the large bedroom, but these were minor points. We had a brilliant week and would love to return.

  • "Had a wonderful stay in the property."

    It was easy to find and access and had most of the things listed (missing TV in bedroom). Would have been good to have had more information about how to access the Wifi but this was resolved with a quick text and also the heating was completely switched off so had to work out how to set the timer on the boiler as I had a couple of particularly cold and windy nights while there, but apart from that it was a great place to unwind with amazing views and all the amenities to hand that I needed for my stay. Thank you,

  • "No electric when we arrived & no power again on Tuesday eve we left Wednesday instead of Saturday."

    its a lovely place to stay until it rains & the power goes off. when the power goes off the electrician has to isolate the sockets so no tv etc does not work, the owner said we should just go the pub. No welcome pack with information who to contact in a emergency or any general guidance where to take your rubbish etc. no tv in the bedroom as advertised

  • "This property is fantastic."

    Its well equipped, warm and clean and has amazing sea views from its position. The owners have thought of everything. If you want to see amazing sunsets, you won't be disappointed. The elevated garden at the back is an excellent viewing point. Hendre Coed Isaf site is a lovely and clean site with fantastic facilties and friendly staff. The new outdoor heated pool was used daily and is highly recommended. There is also a bar and restaurant. If you want a great break with fantastic views and facilities, this is the place.

The property

Resting upon Hendre Coed Isaf Caravan Park in Llanaber, Gwynedd, is Gwel Y Mor, a wonderful single-storey lodge.

Enjoying far-reaching coastal views across Cardigan Bay and on-site facilities, including a heated swimming pool and a restaurant, whilst benefiting from private parking, an enclosed garden, and an open-plan living space, the lodge welcomes four guests, perfect for families and friends alike.

Use the social hub of the property to prepare and enjoy your meals, with the chance to also dine alfresco upon either the elevated balcony or patio area.

Cosy up in the sitting room, with a plush corner sofa to lounge upon with both the TV and electric fire in the backdrop.

Venture outside and climb the steps to the lawned area, offering the ideal vantage point to take in the sun set, before returning indoors to prepare for sleep in the sleek shower room.

Rest your eyes in either the twin or king-size bedrooms, the former completed with an en-suite for extra convenience, before embarking on your adventure-filled itinerary.

If you can tear yourself away from the on-site facilities and stunning view, head into Llanaber to stock up on the essentials, before reaching Barmouth and its bustling Pier, Beach, and Panorama Walking trail.

Travelling towards Harlech, enjoy tours of Harlech Castle and its grand structure, opt for a self-guided trip through Llanfair Slate Caverns, perfect for all the family, or head to Morfa Harlech National Nature Reserve for a day of hiking, with Gwynedd's coastline as your vista.

Well-positioned near Snowdonia National Park, an abundance of walking trails is dotted around the area, including the New Precipice Walk / Llwybr Llanelltyd, and treks up to Rhinog Fawr; be sure to pack your walking boots.
