Back-to-basics camping overlooking Hell's Mouth, with a simple setup and scenic views

If you're invited to a weekend getaway overlooking Hell's Mouth, you're probably going to be concerned about who's outstretching that invitation. But there's no need to worry; Hell's Mouth, known in Wales as Porth Neigwl, is actually a curiously named stretch of sandy and stony beach that Coed y Fron is situated by. This back-to-basics campsite provides an uninterrupted sea view of the four-mile rural bay, and its bell tents offer a peaceful, pre-pitched retreat ideal for exploring Mynytho and nearby Abersoch.

Coed y Fron is light on amenities but big on idyllic views. Four bell tents are pitched on an elevated meadow with Hell's Mouth in front of you, the archipelago of Saint Tudwal's Islands to your left, and the mountainous peak of Foul Gron behind. The Lynn Peninsula countryside is on full display here, with the tents surrounded by sprawling acres of land from which visitors can enjoy the sunrise over its vast hilly greenery, and the sunset behind the Atlantic ocean.

Though the bell tents may have been pitched before you arrive, they're awaiting your personal touch. There are no furnishings, so you'll need to bring your own sleeping mats and bedding. And be prepared for a lack of showers, too, though each tent is equipped with a personal toilet and sink. As the site is located on the land of a working farm, campers have the farm shop's produce at their fingertips, with fresh salad, fruit, and seasonable vegetables available from The Farm Gate. As the name suggests, the shop began life after the Alexander family started selling leftover eggs at their gate before it developed into the small store you'll find today, visited by locals and campers alike.

Guests are encouraged to use Coed y Fron as a hub to explore the wider area. And there are plenty of sights to experience. Hell's Mouth is favoured by surfers thanks to its imposing waves, with people travelling from across the UK to take them on. The seaside village of Abersoch is a short walk away, with its rural, sheltered beach being a popular and fashionable destination and backed by restaurants, cafes, and boutique shops. Then for families, Glasfryn Parc provides go karting, archery, clay pigeon shooting, and more for both the big kids and the small ones you're camping with.

Details

Facilities

This is a 'back to basics' escape with facilities to match.  Each bell tent has it's very own 'farm built' cubby (toilet hut) nestled directly behind it, so as not to interrupt your view, with a separate full sized sink cubicle with mains running water - no shower.  You have your very own fire pit with complimentary logs, to get you started. More can be purchased from Giát y Fferm | The Farm Gate. There is no electricity but why would you need it? Time to switch off and relax from modern trappings.

Suitable For

Our Bell Tents are unfurnished and ready for you and up to 7 fellow campers, to arrive with all your camping gear and bedding; unpack and unwind.  We welcome up to 2 well behaved dogs - we are a working farm and so do expect them to be kept under control. The meadow is fully fenced with two fenced ponds, which are home to some of our rare breed ducks. It may therefore not be suitable for free range children but definitely when accompanied by free range parents there is lots of fun to be had. We welcome groups of friends but please be aware there is no music after 8pm at night. The owls in the wood like to 'talk' to you and you won't hear them over music.

The Owner Says

Situated on the stunning Llÿn Peninsula, famed for its outstanding natural beauty and mix of heritage and culture, you will be staying on a working farm. Our Bell Tents are in an elevated meadow with an uninterrupted view of Porth Neigwl (Hell's Mouth), a 4 mile long bay famed for its surfing to the front of you, St Tudwal's Islands off the coast of Abersoch to your left and behind the ever changing colours of the hill - Foel Gron.
We also have our very own produce stall, Giát y Fferm | The Farm Gate, where you can buy produce essentials, including local milk, butter, cheese, bread and not forgetting our very own free range eggs. Yes, just a little morning stroll down the hill, across the stream and up to the farm yard to buy your breakfast sausages and bacon or an evening stop for burgers and corn on the cob before you head back to your Bell Tent for an evening campfire. Maybe a stunning sunset and a night of stargazing with the twinkling of lights from faraway farms and homesteads adding to its true serenity.
Please note it may be occasionally interrupted by 'Curly' the matriarch of our Traditional Hereford cow herd reminding us that she too likes carrots!

Social Distancing Measures

There are no shared facilities and the only place social distancing is necessary is in the Giât y Fferm | The Farm Gate produce stall.
