The site occupies an elevated location on the edge of the village of Mynytho on the Llyn Peninsula. This is a very convenient location for tourists, with shopping, attractions, beaches and more a short distance away, including the peninsula's main town, Pwllheli (5 miles) and the ever-popular village of Abersoch itself (2 miles). Further afield but still within easy reach are the Snowdonia National Park, Caernarfon, Bangor, Porthmadog and Nefyn.
The site is a very popular, well-respected and successful family-run touring caravan and camping park, awarded 5* accreditation by Visit Wales. The park has won several awards since the current owners purchased it some 15 years ago; including the prestigious 'Winner of Best Caravan and Campsite in Wales' award at the National Tourism Awards.
Covering approximately 9.4 acres, the elevated site offers stunning views over the Llyn Peninsula and Cardigan Bay and easy access to Abersoch, one of the UK's most popular and affluent coastal holiday destinations.

As it is not currently run at its capacity there is therefore plenty of scope to enhance the business, offering opportunities for future owners to make the site even more lucrative.

The park covers around 9.4 acres (3.8 ha) and planning consent has been granted for the siting of 25 touring caravans in the central area (2 acres). Part of the remaining land which boasts amazing views has been used for camping since around 1956. An area, with views towards Hell's Mouth, is currently designated for dog exercising.
The park is sold complete with a spacious three-bedroomed bungalow, located at the park's entrance. The bungalow has a large lounge, kitchen, bathroom, conservatory and three bedrooms, one of which is currently used as the park's reception; the reception could easily be relocated to a nearby building, allowing the bedroom to be restored to its original use. There is also a private patio and garden area to the rear of the bungalow, offering fantastic views.
The bungalow is ideal for use as owner/warden accommodation but could just as well be used as a holiday let to generate additional revenue for the business.
The running costs of the house can be put through the business accounts.
The park currently has 21 touring caravan pitches, with permission for 25 touring pitches in a designated field in the centre of the park, easily accessed from the main entrance.
The spacious, attractive pitches have 16 amp electric hook-up and water connections, plus TV boosted signal points. Of the 21 developed pitches, twelve are hardstanding 'super pitches' with grey waste connection.
At present, 12 seasonal touring caravans are sited.
Three large fields at the site's northern end are used for tents, with 28 pitches marked out in a layout offering plenty of space. While this layout has proved popular, there is space for several more pitches if needed. Due to demand, the current owners have installed additional hook ups in camping areas all running at 16amp, providing 45 hook ups and 6 non hook ups pitches.
The camping fields are operated using the '28 day rule', which states that unlimited tents/ units can be placed in each field [parcel of land] for 28 days, not necessarily consecutive days, and have been operated in this way since the 1950s. As the camping areas provides outstanding sea and countryside views they are extremely popular, bringing visitors back to the park over and over again. The park has an on average an 80% repeat customer rate.
A 2004 Willerby Lambourne special edition hire fleet static caravan is located at the park's entrance. The caravan is fully furnished and has a balcony offering amazing views, and its own separate parking space.
This caravan is at present only used by the owner's family and does not generate any income but could easily be used to generate additional revenue of around £9,000 to £12,000 per season.
The site currently operates four unique glamping units which are very popular with visitors:
Pods 1 and 2
The two high-specification units generate a lot of interest. At 16ft long, each of these glamping units can sleep four guests and both are equipped with 16 amp electric supply and TV connection points. Picnic tables are located outside each one.
This very unusual, cosy and spacious glamping unit is a converted barbecue hut with a double bed, table and chairs, chest of drawers.
Is a unique glamping pod, being the only one of its kind in the world. This unit sleeps two and has a sky gazing dome window for an out-of-this-world glamping experience. It also has16 amp electric supply a TV, fridge and picnic bench.
