To ensure everyone who stays at Hafod y Llan campsite has a great holiday, we have a few simple site rules.

Arrival Times 

No specific time. 

We do not take advance bookings unless you are a group. We operate on a first-come, first-served basis so recommend that you do not leave arrival until too late in the day, especially at busy holiday periods.

Departure times 

We are quite relaxed about this but ask that you make way for arriving guests by early afternoon. 

Groups/ Maximum occupancy 

We are happy to welcome organised groups such as educational groups, DofE, Scouts, Guides, etc. to the site. Proof of group status may be required when booking. Members of organised groups are reminded that other people will also be using the campsite and we respectfully ask that personal belongings are kept inside individuals’ tents and not left in toilet blocks or other communal areas. 

Our site is not suitable for stag, hen or birthday parties. 

All group bookings must be made via the booking office.



When pitching, please ensure that your tent is six metres (about seven large paces) away from adjacent accommodation and other tents present.

Minimum stay 

There is a minimum stay of one night. 


There is a car park close to the campsite, please do not drive your car onto the camping field. When parking, please avoid parking on or blocking the driveway at Hen Dy holiday cottage as access is required at all times, to allow guest access to the holiday cottage.


Please note that the campsite is quite uneven in places, it may be difficult to walk across for those with limited mobility.


Dogs are permitted on the campsite, but must be kept on a lead due to its location on a working farm which holds livestock.

Quiet please 

We ask that our visitors are considerate to their neighbours at all times, but ‘quiet please’ between 10pm and 7am. 


There are designated campfire areas and wood is available at £7 per bag onsite. Barbecues are permitted, provided they are raised off the ground.  Only wood provided by the National Trust can be used on the campfires.


Cooking inside tents is NOT permitted and can be lethal due to carbon monoxide poisoning. 
No Chinese lanterns and fireworks are permitted. 

Problem or complaint 

Every reasonable care will be taken to ensure that the camping pitch or pod and also site amenities are presented to a high standard. Should you find any cause for complaint, please immediately contact one of the campsite staff, so that reasonable steps can then be taken to rectify the problem. National Trust will not normally make any refunds in respect of complaints made after the visitor’s departure from the campsite if the visitor did not make the problem or complaint known to staff during the visitor’s stay. 
All complaints made after the visitor’s departure should be made in writing by post or email to:
