Fantastically remote seaside location

It is no wonder that campers and caravanners alike are attracted to the serene shelter of the Llanbedrog headland. The problem is that some nearby campsites cater for the lowest common denominator, packing in caravans, then squeezing in a few tents as an afterthought. However at family-run Bolmynydd, campers are treated as well as those clumsy caravans, enjoying unmatched views of the coast, Llŷn Peninsula and the towering peaks of Snowdonia.

Rhodri and Ruth, Bolmynydd's charming proprietors, do a grand job maintaining the site. There are two camping fields (the bottom being more spacious) with flat, generously-sized and clearly marked pitches. In the peak summer months Bolmynydd is often full, but copes well due to its spacious feel and planted hedges, creating corners of privacy. Accommodation aside, it's the little touches that really make your stay memorable. Touches like lighting the paths in the dark, numerous water points (so you don't need to trek to the main block), free Wi-Fi and a handy dog-walking area.

So, what’s there to do? Well, if you've come to this neck of northern Wales the chances are you’re in pursuit of outdoor activities, typically wet ones. Sailing off Pwllheli and Abersoch produces an impressive range of sailing conditions. From the relatively sheltered surroundings in the bay, ideal for learning the ropes, to the more demanding offshore waters, it's not difficult to see why so many top sailing events are held in this region.

The benefits of Bolmynydd’s flawless location doesn’t end there. The Llŷn Peninsula Coastal Path is within easy access and offers ramblers the opportunity to stride along the edge of Britain. Whilst en route, pay a visit to Aberdaron – there’s a cute café or two, a pub, quaint little church and the chance to get on a boat to visit the legendary Bardsey Island.

Nearby

The popular village of Abersoch (less than 3 miles away) can be accessed by car or along the coastline via Tyn Tywyn beach. Originally a fishing port, Abersoch is now a tourist centre specialising in adrenaline-fuelled watersports such as windsurfing, dinghy sailing and jet-skiing. Nearby Porth Neigwl (or Hell's Mouth), is popular for surfing; it holds large swells in the winter, however south-westerly prevailing winds can affect quality. There is a packed calendar of events so be sure to plan ahead. Each year since 2000 the village has hosted “Wakestock”, Europe's largest wakeboard festival, combining the cultures of music and (yes, you guessed it) wakeboarding. The Abersoch Jazz Festival takes place in September, whilst the annual West Coast Surf contest gets underway in October. The National Trust owned Llanbedrog and delightful Porth Iago are inspiring places to start your beach tour. Dolphins and seal boat trips around the St Tudno Islands (off Abersoch) and can be arranged with Shear Water Cruises (01758 740899).

Food & Drink

Llanbedrog (less than a mile away) has several decent dining options. The Ship Inn (01758 741111) looks beautiful at night with wooden pagodas and twinkly fairy lights in the beer garden. Lots of seafood, all from fresh ingredients, and is well worth the wait. Glyn y Weddw Arms (01758 740212) is exactly what a pub should be. Friendly landlord and staff, great pub food and good selection of beer and wine. For that special occasion enjoy a five-star meal at Tremfan Hall (01758 740169) or Galley Bistro (01758 740730.) Pwllheli is well stocked for supermarkets with Asda, Spar, Co-op and Iceland all in close proximity. Closer to home, there's a (small) Londis at the end of the road.

Opening Times

2018 season: 28 March to 31 October. Peak season: 30 March to 8 April, 4 to 7 May and 25 May to 3 September.
