Camping with us

Mynydd Derwydd translates to English as Wise Man or Oak Tree Mountain

Find us 20 minutes from Snowdonia National Park, 10 minutes from the Vale of Clwyd, a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and bordering the 16,000 acres of Clocaenog Forest.

We have 3 camping grounds around the farm:

The High Mountain – Mynydd Ucha

This is the main site, only 8 pitches on 80 acres of mountain with views towards the Berwyn and Snowdonia ranges including the peak of Arenig Fawr.  Some pitches will accommodate 2 – 3 tents for small groups.

The Top Mountain – Mynydd Pen

Views towards the Berwyn Range.  2-3 pitches, 1 pitch with good shelter, ideal for sole use by larger groups.

The Meadow – Ddole

Situated next to a small stream, Nant Derwydd, good shelter and views of the Valley of Llanfihangel and Mwdwl Eithin.  1 pitch, ideal for sole use by larger groups.

Access to all pitches is only possible in a 4 x 4 vehicle.  We do have off road parking and use of a wheelbarrow for guests without a 4 x 4.  We also offer a Sherpa Service to take your belongings up to and off your pitch if you don’t feel like carrying them.
