Finding the best camping in Anglesey

The search began for the best camping in Anglesey. With over 40 campsites to chose from in Anglesey there was a lot of research to do. We were leaving our wonderful night’s stay near Llandudno, in a little town called Penmaenmawr.

Our plan was to head further into North Wales to camp in Anglesey. My husband’s search for the best camping in Anglesey delivered us a marvellous nights’ stay at a campsite called Tyddyn Isaf Camping and Caravaning Park.

Tyddyn Isaf best camping in Anglesey review

This campsite is an award-winning camping experience located on the North coast of Anglesey. It certainly has a 5-star feel to it, we thought it really provided the best camping experience in Anglesey because it is child-friendly and dog-friendly too.

Tyddyn Isaf is a family run camp site with excellent staff.

Arrival at the campsite in Anglesey

Our camping in Anglesey experience here was amazingly easy to locate on Google maps and we arrived in approximately 1 hour from Llandudno.

The campsite has a secure barrier at the main entrance. We buzzed in and the hosts welcomed us warmly.

Simon drove us to our field for the night. Simon was an extremely friendly and knowledgeable host and we could not thank him enough. We opted for an electric site with a brilliant view of the Lligwy beach and bay looking towards the Great Orme.

Simon helped us when we struggled with our electricity. He was straight to our aid with various wires and converters and got us set up and sorted.

Our evening consisted of a short walk around the caravan park where we found a great play park onsite. Our 2-and-a-half-year-old loved it. Her highlight was the helter skelter slide.

The play park is built up on the hillside and had excellent views back over the caravan park. We then headed back to our Transporter and pondered over dinner for the evening. I remembered Simon had mentioned their onsite takeaway service.

We sat down and looked at their menu online. It offered some lovely meals, curries and pasta dishes with a range of sides, puddings and drinks. We chose a vegetable lasagne and spaghetti bolognaise with a side salad and a side of garlic bread.

It was incredibly straightforward to order food with them – order and pay online, then collect it 20 minutes later. My husband collected the food from Arthur, one of the campsite’s owners. Again, a helpful and caring host who did his utmost to help my husband with a major favour, the dreaded forgotten bottle opener – camper’s worst nightmare!

Arthur provided my husband with screw top bottles – another service we were not expecting, but this was very welcomed. The food was beautiful and very reasonably priced too.

High quality camping facilities in Anglesey

Another highlight of the camping site was, for me, the shower facilities. An important part of a best camping experience is a shower to suit a family. The facilities were immaculate and of definite 5-star quality. The shower room itself is big enough for the whole family to use, was clean and tidy and really supported the campsite’s conservation initiative.

The showers work on a key fob system. To use the shower, you hold your key fob on the pad and the water is released for a period. The water is also temperature controlled by you so you can get the right temperature for each member of the family.

The showers are newly fitted and I can honestly say it is an excellent, high-quality experience.

Overnight camping in Anglesey

Our family headed back to our VW T4 for an early night, and what a night of rain we received, but we felt very safe on the camping site. We do love the rain hitting the top of the Transporter. Simon came to check on us the following morning which was truly kind.

The next morning, we got up, made our breakfast, and headed out for a walk to the beach.

Beach side camping in Anglesey

From our transporter pitch, we could see the beautiful Lligwy beach and bay. The campsite offers a map which details the various routes you can take to get to the beach.

We headed through the caravan park initially, had another visit to the slide for our little one, and continued the walk through the woodland walkways.

The safety of the campers on site, is clearly of paramount importance to the Tyddyn Isaf owners. The woodland walkway down to the beach requires you to use the key fob again to gain access through the secure gateway. Our dog and little one enjoyed the adventure down.

I would also point out the walk down to the beach is buggy and pram friendly, a little rocky but a huge perk for our family. All along the route, the Tyddyn Isaf family have put out signs to ensure their guests remain Covid-safe and keep their distance.

The camping park has many antibacterial hand stations, along the woodland walk and across the site. We felt incredibly safe whilst there.

We made it to the spectacular Lligwy beach, and just wow, what a phenomenal view. We had the beach to ourselves for some time. Our dog and little one had such fun jumping the waves and chasing each other along the beautifully sandy coastline. On the final part of the journey down to the beach, there is quite a step down. Between my husband and I, we were able to navigate our buggy down without any trouble.

After some time, we headed back up to our transporter pitch, meandering back through the lovely woodland walk. Once back, we made an early lunch, packed up and left. Check out was so easy; Simon collected the key fob from us and off we went.

Conclusion to our camping experience

Our family really enjoyed the stay here. I would certainly agree with their 5-star experience as it felt like such high quality to us.

The hosts were fantastic and welcomed us to Tyddyn Isaf with open arms. We are looking forward to another best camping experience here in Anglesey very soon. Thankyou to all the staff and hosts at Tyddyn Isaf – it has been incredible.
