About Cae Gwyn

Cae Gwyn (meaning ‘White Field’ in welsh) is a historic sheep farm in the heart of Snowdonia National Park with a farming history dating back over 200 years. Even to this day very little has changed over the centuries and you will still see sheep being farmed on the land.

Cae Gwyn Farm can be found along the A470 between Dolgellau and Trawsfynydd with Mount Snowdon only an hour north. Cae Gwyn is ideally situated within easy reach for a weekend or week-long getaways with Chester and Shrewsbury only 90 minutes away. The coastal town of Barmouth, only 25 minutes away has the white sandy beach that runs for miles. 

Cae Gwyn now has 3 large fields available for campers, a camping barn and the Hayloft, a self-contained converted barn that sleeps 10. 

When you are at Cae Gwyn, you will be blown away by the peace and tranquillity of a close to nature holiday. The surrounding land is still farmed for sheep, though not directly by us at Cae Gwyn. 

It’s pretty hard to miss the outstanding view of the Rhinogydd Mountains (Rhinogs) that provide the backdrop to your stay. The Rhinogs could be considered Snowdonia’s best kept secret offering true mountain wilderness. There are no easy roads in, but you can hike up there from the farm. For more information on things to do in the area head over to our local activities page. 

We are continually working to be as eco-friendly as possible and have a 4KW solar panel system, as well as using a wood pellet biomass boiler for heating and hot water.

Team Baily on the farm.

Tim and Pip are the new owners of Cae Gwyn and are excited to take on the farm and continue to provide the mountain holiday it is renowned for. Tim, originally from Snowdonia (over the Rhinogs in-fact) is excited to have his young family back in Snowdonia where he grew up mountain biking and rock climbing. With their two young boys, if they are not on the farm they can be found mostly on bikes, up mountains or on the water.

P.S. We are Cae Gwyn next to Coed y Brenin bike park not the Cae Gwyn at the base of Snowdon. We are close to Snowdon, but not at the base. See maps above for location.
