Hafod y Llan campsite

Nestled in the beautiful Nant Gwynant valley at the heart of the Snowdonia National Park, this basic family-friendly campsite is ideally placed for exploring the surrounding area.

In the heart of the mountains

The campsite is based on the foothill of Snowdon which is perfect if you’re planning to walk up Snowdon; at the top of the campsite you can join the Watkin Path that will lead you to the summit. Please be aware that the Watkin Path is eight miles (there and back) with an ascent of 3,330 feet, therefore plan ahead and bring appropriate equipment. 

If you don’t fancy Snowdon there’s plenty more walks available. Visit the quaint village of Beddgelert (only three miles away) where you can take a stroll along the picturesque Aberglaslyn river and up to Cwm Bychan, or follow the trail of Welsh folklore to Gelert's grave.

If you’re looking for something closer to camp you could try Hafod y Llan’s farm trail or a walk to Craflwyn

Opening times 

The campsite is closed for winter - we close at the end of October half term and reopen in time for the Easter holidays. 


We like to encourage people to enjoy the great outdoors and the simple things in life, like long evenings star gazing or relaxing around the camp fire. It’s a basic campsite with all the essentials.

You can purchase fire wood on-site and use the fire pits provided. Other facilities include hot showers, toilet blocks, tumble drier and car park (a short walk from the campsite).

Please note, there are no electrical hook-ups and the campsite isn't suitable for campervans. 


  • Adults - £7.50 each per night
  • Children (under-16) - £4 each per night
  • Fires - £7 per fire per night, including wood
  • Groups - including Scouts and Duke of Edinburgh (DOE) of all ages - £6 each per night - please email to book in advance. 

Please leave your payments in the envelope and honesty box provided. 

Pitching up 

We operate on a 'first come basis', so it's best to arrive early to secure a pitch, especially for Bank Holidays.

We're only able to take bookings in advance for large groups (e.g. scouts / Duke of Edinburgh), please email to arrange. 

If you find the campsite is full, there are two other campsites in the valley, Cae Du Campsite and Llyn Gwynant campsite. 

Our dogs policy

Well-behaved dogs are allowed, but please ensure they are kept on a lead on the campsite, as Hafod y Llan is a working farm with lots of sheep and also out of courtesy to other campers.

For enquiries, please contact the campsite by e-mail.
