We stayed at Pant Yr Onnen, an attractive lake side site in North Wales during an enjoyable spell of fine weather in June 2018. 

Bala Lake

The road from the Bala end of the Lake is the preferred entry route for anyone towing anything bigger than a wheel barrow, be warned it is a single-track road with limited passing places, so pay attention to the arrival and departure times. The entrance track to the site crosses a railway over a narrow stone walled bridge, but once on the site there is plenty of manoeuvring room.

The electric hook up points are at the Northwest (Bala) end of the site and a couple of hundred meters from the facilities although there is a fresh water tap close to them.

Bala Lake Grass Pitch

There is a hard track along the middle of the site but the pitches are grass, something that we prefer, at least in dry weather.

The site is extremely popular with campers, especially at weekends, but nevertheless we found it quiet overnight, partly because few of them found their way to the far end of the site where we were pitched; too far from the toilets perhaps. 

There is an excellent dog walk through the woods along the lakeside accessible from the Bala end of the site, our dog seemed very satisfied with the arrangement and enjoyed swimming in the lake. As a result he left the site considerably cleaner then when he arrived. 

Bala Lake Dog Walk

Sudden aircraft noise can be unsettling until you realise that the lake forms part of the low-flying practice route for the RAF and you have also learnt to keep half an eye open for their arrival; fortunately they do keep office hours. 

We found the resident staff both friendly and helpful at all times and thought the site reasonable value, mainly due to its Lake side location.
