Sometimes the last minute getaways are the best type of short-breaks and this weekend away turned out to be one of the best. Located within an hour drive of our home, Trwyn yr Wylfa Camping & Caravan Site can be found on the seaside coast of North Wales and is a gem of a campsite.

The site is located a five minute drive from the charming Welsh town of Conwy and accepts tents, campervans, motorhomes and caravans. The campsite has two large fields with many flat areas and you can find your own pitch. We parked up our campervan facing the side door out onto a glorious view of the sea with the Snowdonian mountains behind us. Whilst we set up camp alongside our friends, who were joining us with their two children in their VW Caravelle, the kids played happily and rode bikes on the large field.

The campsite has excellent facilities including separate ladies and gents toilets as well as two family and accessible shower rooms - all with hot water. There is also a dishwashing area, chemical disposal point, a recycling collection area and a large playing field for ball games. The small reception also sells any camping essentials you might have forgotten like Marshmallows! 

After a lamb kebab BBQ dinner cooked out of our campervan, we decided to wear out the children before bed by running them up the hills behind us. The campsite has footpaths that can be accessed directly from the back of the field that link up to the North Wales Coastal Paths. The children enjoyed running up the paths and clambering on rocks and the view from the top over the sea is spectacular, particularly in the early evening.

On Saturday we walked from the campsite and crossed over onto the sandy beach for a day of sandcastle building and paddling in the sea (in April it wasn't quite warm enough for swimming!). On Sunday we drove into Conwy town centre to visit Conwy Castle which the children loved followed by a walk around the town walls (a head for heights is a must!), then an ice cream on the harbour front. Conwy has many interesting shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants that would be perfect for an evening meal if you didn’t want to cook on the campsite.  

After a lovely weekend away we all agreed that Trwyn yr Wylfa was definitely a campsite to return to for a longer trip to explore North Wales from its beautiful location.  


The campsite is in quite close proximity to the A55 road beneath and there is some road noise that can be heard, but in our campervan it was significantly reduced. 


The spectacular views across the sea were definitely the highlight of this campsite, as were the ability to walk straight out of the campsite onto the coastal paths. 





We have been travelling in campervans for over 15 years, taking in the best that the UK and Europe has to offer. By sharing our adventures, insights, recommendations and reviews we hope to inspire you to explore more!
