Woodland Walks in North Wales


Llyn Mair

Tucked away, surrounded by beautiful woodland, and only a 15/20 minute drive away from Garreg Goch Caravan Park lies Llyn Mair.  A beautiful lake hidden in the Vale of Ffestiniog, located between Maentwrog and Rhyd.  Llyn Mair is said to have been created by the Victorian slate baron, W. E. Oakley, as a birthday gift for his daughter, Mair.  The woodland that surrounds this lake comprises much of Coedydd Maentwrog, a designated Special Area of Conservation.

The Coed Llyn Mair nature reserve makes up the largest section of the Coedydd Maentwrog, stretching from Llyn Mair up to and around the Ffestiniog Railway's station at Tan -y - Bawlch.

Llyn Mair is home to a wealth of wildlife and insects including Herons, Ospreys, Damselfly and Dragonfly.  During the summer months the water lilies are a sight to behold!

You can while away the day sitting on one of the many benches situated all around the lake.  Why not take a picnic with you, as there are several picnic benches too, and enjoy the peace and quiet whilst having a bite to eat!

There are several trails for you to follow.  You can follow the trail around the lake, winding through the woodland, bringing you to the edge of the lake.  If you follow this all the way around, you will eventually come to a little waterfall by a lovely little cottage.  This brings you back onto the road, where you can walk back around to the car park; unless you walk back through the trees to where you started from!

There are clearly marked footpaths all through the woodland.  The Coed Llyn Mair nature trail runs for around 400 meters and ascends quite steeply over a series of steps that lead to Tan y Bwlch train station.

Llyn Mair is just one of many beautiful locations within close proximity to us here at Garreg Goch Caravan Park, Porthmadog, that provide scenic walks for all abilities.

If you are a lover of walks, or simply just like to be close to nature, we are the ideal base for your next holiday.  After a day out walking, why not head back to your rented holiday home, or your own touring caravan/motorhome, have a nice relaxing shower and put your feet up whilst enjoying a lovely homemade cake from Henllan Bakery and a tipple or two from the local brewery in Porthmadog (soon to be stocked in our on-site shop!)

Our office is open daily from 9am until 7pm, so why not book your next holiday with us now and pay a visit to this magical, beautiful place!

Spring Bank Holiday Fun

BBQ time at Garreg Goch....................



Bank Holiday weekend had arrived which meant it was BBQ time!  On Friday afternoon we had a trial run with the BBQ (have to make sure it's in good working order of course!) so we didn't waste anytime on Sunday.  With that done we were able to concentrate on everything else, like making sure we had enough burgers and sausages!

It was a good job we were not having the BBQ on Saturday as the weather wasn't very nice.  We definitely chose the right day with Sunday!

The day started out a bit overcast and looking like it wasn't going to be very nice weather.  By the time lunchtime came around, the weather had started to change and it was time to get the gazebo and BBQ out.

With Ian in charge of the rest of the staff, we had the gazebo up in no time(with a little help from a passing customer, and lots of laughs and giggles from the staff too!)  It took us less time than we thought to get it up.  With the gazebo in place it was time to get the BBQ out.




Once the BBQ was in place, it was time to get everything else out, from drinks, crisps and sweets to the raffle prizes and the bingo machine!



By this point the sun had come out and it had turned into a lovely afternoon.

The staff were raring to go so it was time to light the BBQ.

It wasn't long before owners and customers were turning up with deck chairs and blankets in tow.  With the burgers and sausages on the go, they were starting to queue.  Rob did a fantastic job cooking and managed to keep up with the demand for food.

It was down to Anne and Ian to sell the drinks and sweets and raffle tickets, and they did a very good job too, keeping track of who wanted what and how many raffle tickets.


We had a good range of raffle prizes, some of which had been very kindly donated by our owners, which gave us a total of 21 prizes!

As always, Bingo went down really well, although i think i was a bit optimistic thinking everyone was going to play 6 games at Full House!  The first two games took a little while, and what with me not being able to shout very well, well, you can imagine what it was like!  We gave up on the full houses and played for a line instead.  I think everyone much preferred this (so now we know for next time!)

All in all a good afternoon was had by all.  It was a good practice run for our next one during the summer.  A total of £93.00 was raised for the Welsh Air Ambulance, and that was just from the raffle and bingo!  This will be added to the £117.00 from Easter along with any other monies raised throughout the year and presented to the Welsh Air Ambulance at the end of the year.

If you have any suggestions on what you would like to see/ have at the next BBQ fun day then please just pop into the office and let us know.

I would just like to say a very big THANK YOU to Anne, Ian and Rob, the staff here at Garreg Goch for all their hard work on Sunday afternoon in making it a successful afternoon.

Here's to the next one in August................................................................................

Garreg Goch fun day

Come and join us

Bingo and a quiz and a raffle

we are hoping to raise even more money for the welsh air ambulance,a very worth while charity

so come along,

we look forward to seeing you all there.
Had a large turn out for our easter egg hunt even though the weather wasnt too great,the shop/office was full of kids eagerly waiting to set off .As an added extra Ian had hidden 3 golden chicks which gave the searchers an extra chance to win a special prize.




The chocolate tombola was also a great hit everyone (even me ) i have never seen one done before and will definitely be include in next years fun day.


the coloring competition was amazing, the standard was high and was hard to choose a winner.We intended to have just 3 winners but ended up with 12 as we couldn't decide.
our guess the bunnys name was also a big hit and he was finally named as scruffles he will be going to a lovely new home

And to cap it all off we raised £117 for the air ambulance,a service that wales depends on,on a daily basis so to all who contributed thank you so much
We look forward to seeing you all again next year
