Camping in Snowdonia

Building Memories For Over A Hundred Years

Camp under dark, starry skies nestled in the shadow of Eryri's earthen giants.

At Gwern Gof Isaf we have 5 beautiful camping fields that have been serving campers for over 100 years. We can comfortably accommodate 50 individual tent pitches with plenty of space between for your safety and privacy. The 50 allowable pitches are reserved on a first come, first served basis. Reserving your pitch early is highly recommended. At this time, to protect the good health of our family and your's we are requiring that campers set up their tents well away from other campers' pitches. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated and is vital to Gwern Gof Isaf's compliance with government regulation.

5 guests maximum to each pitch please. When booking please provide details for each guest that will be staying.
