A huge, family-friendly, tent-only campsite amid the hills of Snowdonia, five minutes' drive from Betws-y-Coed

Big mountains. Big lakes. Big forests. Big appeal. That’s Snowdonia in a nutshell and now you can add to that list, ‘big campsite’. For Camp Eryri, which takes the national park’s Welsh name, is vast; spread across some 20 acres of grassland in the flat floor of the Conwy Valley. That’s the equivalent of 15 football pitches – albeit football pitches with two beautiful oak trees in the centre – and it’s certainly enough room that, even with over 100 tents pitched up, there’s buckets of space to enjoy.

Opened for the first time in 2021, Camp Eryri is a pop-up campsite in a field usually reserved for hay making. It’s a simple, spacious site, where children make their own fun and the national park is your playground. The campsite is solely geared around tent campers.

Across the valley is Gwydir Forest, covering a steep hillside, while, along the valley bottom, the A470 tracks the rough course of the river, making the campsite remarkably convenient for going, well, pretty much anywhere in the northern half of Snowdonia. The market town of Llanrwst and the cute, outdoorsy, riverside town of Betws-y-Coed are each two miles away (to the north and the south respectively) and it’s 12 miles (half an hour’s drive) to the popular starting points for walks up Snowdon and Cwm Idwal. The coast, too, is a similar distance, with Conwy and Llandudno worth exploring if you’re here for long enough to leave the mountains, while families particularly enjoy the convenience of Zip World Fforest, a zip-lining and hire-wiring adventure centre in the trees, which is less than a mile down the road.

Details

Facilities

Camp Eryri is situated in a very large flat field that is 20 acres in size. That's 15 football pitches!

Even with a field this size, the camp has been purposefully limited to a relatively small number of tents in order to allow every family / group to have more than enough space.  This works out at a football field per 10 pitches. With the only permanent features being two beautifully positioned old oak trees standing in the centre of the field within a huge open space, families and campers of all ages will be able to run around until their heart's content.

There are 22 showers and over 40 toilets on-site, along with refuse, recycling and water stations.

Two friendly members of staff will be living on-site, so there be someone present the majority of the time.

For the evenings, three times a week there will be a mobile stonebaked sourdough pizza van on site.

Suitable For

Families and quiet small groups. This is not a party site!

As we are a pop up site, we only accept canvas tents. It does not allow caravans and campervans sadly.

Furry friends are permitted provided that they are kept on a lead and that any mess is cleaned up and disposed of for the benefit of the other guests.

Open

July–September.

The Owner Says

Camp Eryri is a pop-up summer campsite located in the very heart of the Snowdonia National Park.

On a stunning 20 acre flat field on the plain of the lush Conwy Valley - a broad, sheltered valley on the western foothills of the Carneddau. With epic views of the Gwydir Forest across the valley floor, it is nestled conveniently between the iconic alpine town of Betws-y-Coed - the 'Gateway to Snowdonia', and the picturesque market town of Llanrwst - both 5 minutes drive away.

Betws-y-Coed is a bustling mountain resort bulging with galleries, cafés and outdoor clothing shops which cater for visitors who flock to buy fresh locally roasted coffee, fresh sourdough pizza and hike, bike and scrambling equipment.

The site is less than 1 mile away from both Zip World Forest - the premier family adventure site in North Wales (with an excellent cafe) and Ffin y Parc Gallery, specialising in original works of art by renowned Welsh artists and boasts a wonderful cafe.

Further afield, it is less than 25 minutes drive to many of Snowdonia’s highest mountains and the same to the wonderful coastline, which includes the Victorian resort and sprawling promenade of Llandudno and the walled town of Conwy with its spectacular riverside castle and bustling harbour packed with pubs, cafes and arcades.
