Explore the unparalleled beauty of Snowdonia National Park within our well-appointed, family-friendly site. A warm welcome awaits you at our working hill farm near the small picturesque town of Dolgellau. Our quiet park has grass and hardstanding pitches available with or without electric. Visitors can wake up to a view of the mountains!

Whether you are looking for a relaxing retreat or an adventurous holiday, Llwyn yr Helm is the perfect base for experiencing the raw beauty and thrills of Snowdonia National Park.

Our newly refurbished reception building is an attractive and useful hub for all of our guests. We have comfortable seating for you to relax in while you pour through useful local information, read a book from our book borrowing service, or just enjoy our free reception WIFI to touch base with home and check your emails.

The shelves in our shop stock every day essentials as well as locally sourced produce that we think you may enjoy. We will happily freeze your ice blocks in our freezer at no extra charge.

New in 2020, our centrally located facilities block is nestled within the natural curve of our landscape and consists of disabled/family rooms, male and female showers and toilets, washing-up sinks and chemical waste disposal point. We also have a conveniently located drive over waste disposal point.

There’s nothing worse that trying to dry wet clothes in a tent, so if your day out exploring involves getting wet and dirty, or even if you just want to go home without the washing pile? Our useful laundry has a coin operated washing machine and drier and is open 24 hours a day, throughout the season.

Our characterful touring field extends to four acres, sectioned-off into three separate areas by hedges and traditional Welsh dry stone walls. Each pitch is as unique as the guests that stay with us. We have a combination of electric and non-electric pitches on a variety of hardstanding and luscious grass bases.

Being a family friendly caravan park, we have an outdoor play area to entertain young family members, alongside a small playing field ideal for a family game of football. We also encourage natural play in our nature areas as well as promoting conservation.

Being a working hill farm, we also encourage you to take an interest in our friendly farm animals during your stay. Collect your own eggs for breakfast, feed our pet lambs and watch the playful goats while you learn about the various breeds of animals on the farm.

We pride ourselves on being a dog friendly park and well behaved waggy tailed friends are as welcome as you are. All we ask is that you keep your dogs on a lead within the park and clear up any mess.

We also have a designated dog exercise area within the park and a selection of dog treats and eco-friendly poo bags available to buy at our shop.

Great site

Lovely site, very nice views of the hills, toilets and showers are first class.The motorhome service point was extremely hard to get to so the water went into the drain, the drain could do with being moved over 2 or 3 feet to make it a bit easier.Other than that it's a great site.

Beautiful location, toilets and showers are spotless! The family rooms were amazing, especially since it was just me and the dog, they were a great help. Can’t fault this site, great value for money

Beautiful setting, friendly owners, excellent facilities.

Want, Paulette - 21/06/2024

We stayed 9 nights at this fabulous site and can’t fault it. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The pitches are large with plenty of space between. The toilets and showers are outstanding and spotless, separate men’s and women’s and large unisex family showers/toilets. Underfloor heating and piped music. Indoor washing up facilities and separate laundry room. The site is set beside a stream in beautiful countryside but is only a couple of miles of eating places and village. Brithdir’s old St Marks Church is definitely worth a visit and Cadar Idris’ park with lovely walks and hikes a short drive away. The Torrent Walk close to the campsite is also one not to be missed.

Walking in Dolgellau area via campervan

Sharp, Sarah - 17/06/2024

Very friendly but organised campsite. Loved the fact this was small relative to others we've stayed at - only 3 areas, one more informal and others with levelled out slate hardstanding. Superb facilities block with family bathroom style washing and great hot water for dish washing.

Perfect location, peaceful site

Lawton, Ailsa - 17/06/2024

The site is a lovely peaceful site just outside Dolgellau, great as a base for walking with Cader Idris and Coed y Brenin on the doorstep. The site is well maintained with a great dog walk paddock. Already booked to go back.
