Eco-friendly low impact camping and Tipi holidays in North Wales

About Us

Environmentally Friendly Camping

 Open from 30th June 2018! Gyrn Ddu (Black Horns) Campsite is located on the ruggedly beautiful coast of the Llyn Peninsula.  

We're a small family run site, set in 7 acres and with just 10 pitches. These are 8 grass pitches each with its own picnic table and firepit and also  2 pre-pitched, fully kitted out cosy Nordic Tipis. 

We also provide a covered washing up area, composting loos and LPG hot showers. 

Gyrn Ddu Campsite offers guests environmentally friendly, low impact, old school camping holidays with spectacular views of Caernarfon Bay and Yr Eifl (The Rivals) mountains. 


 Based on the Llyn Peninsula, we are located just off the A499,   1.25 miles past the historic village of Clynnogfawr. 

We are situated at the foot of Gyrn Ddu peak, just 200 yards walk from the sea and within minutes of the North Wales Coastal Path.

We are only 10 miles from Pwllheli, 12 miles from Caernarfon, 12 miles from Porthmadog and 23 miles from Llanberis and the Snowdonia National Park. 

There's plenty to see and do close by making us the perfect base to explore this part of North Wales.   

Gyrn Ddu  (which translates as Black Horns) is a peak on the Llŷn Peninsula in the county of Gwynedd in North Wales. Gyrn Ddu reaches a height of  522.1m and is the 5390th highest peak in the British Isles and the 457th tallest in Wales
