Beautiful Snowdonia National Park

Based in Nant Y Benglog just outside Capel Curig within the Snowdonia National Park, the Williams campsite at Gwern gof Isaf farm is not merely a campsite but a place of legend. Opened in 1906 by Henry’s Great Grandmother Jane Williams it has seen many a camper, traveller and intrepid explorer pass through including Sir John Hunt who used Gwern Gof Isaf as his base camp whilst training for Everest in 1952.  Also known as Willies Barn the campsite and bunkhouses still thrive today run by the now 8th generation Williams family Henry and Kirsty.

Gwern Gof Isaf was the first farm in the area to diversify and welcome holiday makers. Open 365 days a year the campsite has only ever closed four times during its duration. The campsite was forced to close during the First World War due to a lack of visitors. The site was also closed during the Second World War as the army used the site for artillery training. More recently the campsite closed in 1999 because of the foot and mouth epidemic and again in 2001.
