Best campsites for the Llŷn AONB

Here is our pick of the Alan Rogers Assessors, expert-recommended campsites for the Llŷn Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Occupying about a quarter of the Llyn Peninsula in the Gwynedd region, this was one of the first areas to be designated AONB back in 1956. In fact, it is also recognised as a Heritage Coast. Then as now, it was recognised for its gorgeous coastline, unspoilt scenery, traditional wildlife habitats and cultural heritage. The tranquillity and wide open spaces of the region, along with the white-washed farms and narrow lanes, add to the charm.

The AONB features different terrains, including rolling hills, glowering mountains, sand dunes, rocky foreshores, and little offshore islands. Llyn has a rich heritage dating back to the Iron Age and Bronze Age, with burial chambers and forts at places like Garn Boduan. A distinct maritime tradition continues to this day, but quarrying and mining have ceased, leaving just disused works which add a ghostly reminder on the landscape.

Abersoch is a perennially popular holiday destination and resort while Llanbedrog is a small village loved for its excellent beach and famous beach huts.
