Travel Writer’s Favourite

We’re chuffed that Graig Wen in Snowdonia National Park has recently featured in the national media in a few round ups of “Best Camping & Glamping Sites”

The Sunday Times asked their writers to recommend the camp sites they personally love to return to.  Award-winning travel writer James Stewart, knows a thing or two about special places to stay. Named Travel Writer of the Year in 2021.  James is a big fan of southern Snowdonia and we’ve welcomed him here for years. We are so proud and touched that he had this to say about Graig Wen – thanks James!

” You choose a tent over a building so that you can be closer to nature for a bit. That’s why you’ll find me in the “nearly wild” site of Graig Wen. If what tweaks your guy ropes is the raw beauty of southern Snowdonia then follow me past the composting loo and shower shed to a car-free campsite of dreams: 17 pitches in 40 acres of meadows, bracken fern and oak woods; creeks of the Mawddach estuary below, mountain above,; stars and campfires at night. Best of all, the owners sell fresh croissants, barista coffee and eggs for breakfast. Perfect.”

Recommended by The Green Traveller in The Guardian 

Graig Wen was picked by The Guardian as “10 of the best campsites you can reach by public transport”. We are featured in a new book by Richard Hammond called The Green Traveller”

“Cosy yurts, a couple of quarry wagons and a romantic shepherd’s hut are all on offer, equipped with wood-burning stoves, kitchenettes and double beds – and their location in the shadow of Cader Idris is perfect for observing some of Britain’s darkest skies”
