The National Trust acquired Hafod y Llan in 1998, the whole area covers 4000 acres. This diverse landcape, (which is an SSSI) includes a nature reserve and a working farm, which is organically and sensitively grazed.

The campsite

Hafod-y-Llan Campsite is situated approximately 4 miles away from Beddgelert on a working farm owned by the National Trust. The campsite is next to the stunning Cwm Llan river at the base of Snowdon, ideally located for the Watkin Path which can be accessed through the campsite and exploring the surrounding area.

Hafod y Llan was purchased through public donations, the farm is managed to enhance the landscape, nature conservation and its amenity value while ensuring economic benefit to the community through traditional farming.


  • There are 35 simple grass pitches.
  • We do not have size restrictions on tents.
  • There are campfires for which you can buy bundles of wood for £7 per bag. 
  • Parking spaces are limited so if driving to the site please car share.


The campsite benefits from being in the centre of the Snowdonian mountain range. With an ideal position to explore the local area, and to hike up the Watkin path, the steep climb will be rewarded with breath-taking views.

Feel free to follow the enchanting Hafod y Llan Farm Family Interest Trail, which begins at a bridge near the River Glaslyn, an important sight for spawning Salmon and Brown Trout.


There is also plenty of wildlife for nature lovers to spot. The area is home to feral goats, tadpoles in the spring, common otters, weasels, as well as choughs, herons and dippers. 

There are also plenty of other things to spot on your walks including the remains of Victorian Tramlines, used for the old quarry. There are also archaeological sites.
