    Hi, I'm thinking of going to Llanberis at the end of this month to walk Snowdon and see the new visitor centre at the summit. Could anyone recommend a site where I could leave the motorhome and either walk or catch a bus right outside to Llanberis?

    As I will be travelling on my own (wife is working and kids don't deserve a break) I don't fancy driving to Llanberis and parking the truck.

    I spotted Mountain Farm Campsite after a quick search but have some reservations about it's suitability for a 24' 3.5 tone vehicle (access, pitches etc)

    Appreciate any recommendations, otherwise I might just to go Cornwall instead :BigGrin:

    We were there recently, don't know of a site close by but the car park opposite the Snowdonia Railway has stacks of space and allows motorhomes to park ( not overnight ) the cost for a car was £5 not sure if more for motorhome. We stayed on the CClub site in betts y coed, nice site and location.

    Yes I think the car park belongs to the hotel ,and I think you may need permission from them ,you would have to ask the bloke in the car park cos he told us that we could park overnight but to check with the hotel.:thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

    We stayed here Challoner Camp Site back in the summer. Reasonable facilities and lots of hardstandings so no worries about soft ground.

    It's not walking distance of Llanberis but on the main road from Caernarfon to Llanberis so should be buses going by. Having said that parking was no problem in Llanberis, even in July, so I wouldn't worry too much on that front.
