We loved our stayed in the Jump View Pod. The pod was spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. There was a seating area out the front looking out over stunning mountain views which was a real highlight. We hired mountain bikes from Coed y Brenin trail centre which is only a couple of minutes up the road. Perfect location for MTBers! We will be visiting again!

We had a great 4 days here. The views from the Rhiog view field are spectacular. Perfect location for Coed y Brenin and has bike storage too. All the basic facilities you needs for a camping trip. Tim’s helpful and knows the area well. We will definitely be back in the future.
Thanks.

Went with my boyfriend for our first anniversary. It was an absolutely amazing trip- the scenery alone is worth visiting for. The facilities are great as well, we stayed in the BnB and the room was comfy, cosy and well furnished. It's not a 5* luxury hotel but it has a comfy bed, tea and coffee making facilities, a TV and iPod dock, and the en suite facilities are great. Breakfast is a continental option but even as a coeliac there were plenty of options for me to eat. Sue and Dave are super welcoming and lovely, and they took us to the local pub which was a hoot.

Highly recommend!

No WiFi or should I say there is but I was refused code... Not helpful when no internet and needed to book onwards travel. No drying room as advertised on website just one stand in the shower room. 3 unisex toilets for whole site. No direct traffic free cycling route to bike park so had to drive and pay. Lists of rules everywhere. Long grass. Can't park car on camping area so have to carry everything trough the long grass.

I'm writing here because for some reason I've been blocked to review them on Google, where they lied with their response. The owner - pregnant lady at that time was mean to my 4 yr old daughter, who dared to go close to their house and tried to touch the watering can. -,, just leave it and go to your mummy and daddy, ok? "
She did not tried to climb the farm equipment like your lying wife said. She was constantly under my observation that's why I've said that she could finally run without our worry.
Your response was very rude and unprofessional and stating that I,, reviewed your wife" was simply dumb and silly. You are a business owners and somehow acting like a child. Both of you. She - by lying like a school girl and you, but not properly checking the facts.
Shame on you and grow up.

we stayed here for a night before a mountain biking event at coed y brenin. Lovely and warm, a nice welcome from the owners and plenty of healthy food available for breakfast. Definitely coming back! 5 stars.

I did bed without the breakfast as it suited me as I was working for a couple of days at the nearby mountain biking centre . Great room . Very warm and clean . Sue the owner very welcoming . Unfortunately for me my working day didn't give me much daylight at the B and B but I managed some local short walks from the farm . Beautifully remote countryside. Be prepared for poor phone signal though , I did get a good signal having walked down through the farm over the stream and up the hill . No WiFi in B and B rooms but fair by the front door . Maybe a booster for the signal in the B and B otherwise great facilities for a very reasonable price and will certainly consider using it again . I can't comment on the campsite or camping barn as I didn't use them .

I reviewed this campsite a year ago after our first stay, and we returned a couple of weeks ago. Once again, we were treated extremely well from arrival to departure by Sue and Dave, possibly the best campsite owners this side of Timbuktoo.

Having been eaten alive by the midges last year, we opted to book out the camping barn this time, in the hope that we'd be left alone. The camping barn, I have to say, was absolutely fantastic, and for £12 per person per night, we couldn't have asked for more. Sadly, the midges still found a way to eat us alive....... Next year, I'll take the advice of Sue and Dave, and buy some of the midge repellent that they stock for guests.

Sue / Dave were still on hand to run us to the local pub despite it being their 30th wedding anniversary, and a host of friends and family of theirs descending upon them to be entertained. In fact, on the Saturday night, just about to board the minibus for their celebrations, and I witnessed a knock on the door as a car had become stuck in a field. Dave answered the door suited and booted, and without hesitation, chucked on his wellies, and towed the car to safety! As I said, they are wonderful people! Unfortunately, the local pub seems to have gone somewhat downhill since our last visit, but that didn't dampen the mood, nor the biking weekend we had planned.

In addition to the campsite, Sue and Dave also run the farm and the land aplenty that goes with it. Given the decline of the local pub, I think we need to petition for them to create a micro-brewery with a farmhouse hot food menu to complement the stay ;-) As if they didn't have enough to do (although it would be a belting addition :-)

Look forward to seeing you again next year!

Truly stunned by the location and view of this campsite and a very friendly welcome to add to it also. Easy reservation, parking plenty and facilities sufficient. Showers were spacious warm and good pressure, shower curtain could be replaced more regularly but nothing to stop us enjoying a lovely night under the stars after biking at coed y brenin forest. Thank you. will definitely recommend

Just returned from spending the weekend at Cae Gwyn Farm, and have to say, it is the best campsite I have ever stayed at. With mountain biking specifically in mind, you couldn't ask for anymore. Safe storage for the bikes, bike washing facilities should they be required, and a fridge to leave a beer in for your return to camp! Oh, and the ability to ride out from the farm, and be on the trails within 15 minutes of setting off!

The welcome we received from Sue and Dave was second to none, and I know they are both very proud of what they have achieved. The local pub (Rhiw Goch Inn) was great for our everning meals, and for 2 pounds per person, Sue or Dave are happy to transport you there, with a 10% discount on food, and a free ride home offered by the staff at the pub. Bliss!

Needless to say, we'll certainly be returning again in the future, and I cannot recommend this place highly enough for anybody looking for a weekend of mountain biking, or hiking at Coed y Brenin forest park.

See you again soon Sue and Dave, and thank you once more!

How far is the pub?!
Answer from Dave H

Our nearest pub is about a mile and a half away but it is having problems at the moment and is not always open. Best to go to Dolgellau (about 9 miles) where there is more choice.
