Camping groups at Llyn Gwynant Barns

Printable documents: Camping groups in the barns Barn Terms and Conditionsand Kitchen at Llyn Gwynant barns.  The Llyn Gwynant barns are beautiful and private with their own private camping fields and are only let to one group at a time. Since they are now a popular wedding venue the barns are usually available only midweek or low season for camping groups. Small groups (whose fees are £800 or less per night) get the Camping and Tall barns with one field, while larger groups (with fees >£800) hire the entire complex. Occasionally we also hire the internal shower and toilet block to small groups. The facilities of the entire complex are these:

  • The Camping barn has a large kitchen with wooden seating see Barn kitchen for details, and the adjacent Tall barn has alpine style sleeping platforms for around 20 but no beds or bedding.
  • The Function barn is a large hall with stage at one end and room for 140 seated at tables. An indoor toilet block has 2 hot showers and 3 toilet cubicles, one disabled with an infant changing table. See Function barn for more.
  • The barn yard has parking for 20 – 30 cars, 2 electric hook-ups and an outside toilet block with flush toilets. The campsite  has hot (free) showers a couple of hundred yards away.
  • The barn fields are for tents or for privacy, with restrictions on vehicles. There are 6 electric hookups suited to small campervans and caravans at top of the field and around the barns.
