Ogwen Bank Country Park
» Bangor » Bethesda
Ogwen Bank Country Park has much to offer those looking for a relaxing holiday in North Wales. Located within 12 acres of natural woodland at Ogwen Bank, there can scarcely be more idyllic surroundings. Located at the foothills of Snowdonia you are sure to see an abundance of wildlife including rabbits which play freely in this area.
One of the most spectacular views is the river which runs through the middle of the park as well as waterfalls and pools. If you like to leave the comfort of the park and see some of the real North Wales then the traditional Welsh village of Bethesda is a good place to start. For some relaxation and rejuvenation head for the Olde Worlde Country Club which was once the Penrhyn Castle Hunting Lodge. Here you will find a friendly atmosphere and warm welcome.
As well as the country club, other amenities include cafe/restaurant, bar meals, children's play area and shop. Accommodation is in luxury lodges with one, two or three bedrooms. The Harlech is perfect for couples as it sleeps 2. The Conwy lodge sleeps 4 and the Caernarfon Lodge sleeps 6. All of the lodges are 4 star graded so you can be assured of comfort and luxury.

great setting, comfortable, clean, great shower and comfy beds, helpful staff on site
A great relaxing break and will be returning again next year . I think what would be good is to offer a bit more in the food range as the food we had was lovely
Was amazing! Peacefull place! We will visit again! I love this place :)
Staff very friendly and helpful, and lodge and park very clean. Excellent base with lots of other places to explore not far away. Wouldn't hesitate to go back again
I have returned to Ogwen seven times as a couple, as a family and with friends, never been disappointed. It is not too far from what Snowdonia has to offer.
Nice, spacious, comfortable lodge with close parking. Only criticism was that the double bed mattress was not the most comfortable. There is some morning noise from lorries from Penrhyn quarry, and from zipwire customers, but these were not too intrusive. The birdsong on site made up for it. This site is in a great position for exploring North Wales, Snowdonia and Anglesey. The site is beautiful, with the river flowing through it.
Facilities are limited but we ate off-site most days, and we planned all our leisure activities to be off-site. We did play pool on site on 5 nights, and had one takeaway meal which was good. I know we can't expect extensive facilities such as a pool on a relatively small site. Maybe some lower-budget upgrades could be made, such as a table tennis table in the games room or similar.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Requests for replacement light bulbs and a new toilet seat were quickly acted on. The selection of leaflets on things to do throughout the area was up-to-date and extensive (there was nothing I found that the office did not have a leaflet for!). Wendy, who greeted us so warmly, was generous with her time in discussing where to go.
The Friday to Friday booking worked well for us. It ensured very smooth journeys from Hertfordshire, with none of the nightmare of travelling on Summer holiday Saturdays, and it means we are ready to do activities at busy sites the day after arriving as they are often quiet on Saturdays.
We all loved our Wales holiday and loved this site. My teenage children had little enthusiasm for coming to North Wales before we arrived. Having got here, they immediately liked Ogwen bank. They felt we had to do very little travelling around the area. Since getting home, they have both said they want to come back and stay here again. We will definitely be back!
Amazing, thoroughly enjoyed it, central location, will definitely recommend and plan to stay again!
Fantastic place, would go back again and again ðŸ˜Š
