From the moment we drove in, and I looked up and saw the breathtaking sight of the sea which looks really bluey-green, and the mountains came into view, I fell in love with this site. From there it just got better and better.

If you are looking for entertainment, or a clubhouse, or manicured flowerbeds, or a gift shop, then this site won’t be for you. However if you are one of those people, like me, who needs to get away from urban living at the weekend, and wake up to nothing more noisy than a few birds tweeting, or some lambs bleating, then this site is paradise. It is the perfect place to unwind.

The pitches are a very generous size for caravans, and all pitches seemed to have a good view.

The facilities are pretty basic, although the newly refurbished shower block is great – big family sized rooms, with a shower, toilet and basin. Plenty of hot water, and good water pressure too. We had looked at the website before we booked, and have found the pictures to be very representative of the place….

The owners of this site are lovely too – helpful and kind natured. Best of all is their dog Moss who greets you like you are a long lost friend. He also helps by picking up litter on the site!

Harlech itself is fairly small but has a number of shops and there is the castle to visit. I definitely recommend visiting the homemade ice cream shop at the bottom of the castle. Their award winning Elderflower Ice Cream is just not to be missed!

The site is within driving distance of lots of nice places, and at night, you can see across the water towards Criccieth, Porthmadog, and Portmeirion.

We loved this site so much we booked a seasonal pitch. 10/10 from me.

Lovely site - fantastic views. Lovely people, kind generous & couldn't do enough for you.

Terrible weather when we visited - but it is Wales.

Will go again for sure - cant be beaten on price & for peace, quiet & isolation.


Positives: New toilet / bathing block, very comfortable, specially the little bathrooms. Always soap & towel at sinks. Washing up liquid provided, tea towels, all you could want. Plenty of hot water at all times. Never had to queue.

Good recycling facilities for us greens.

Negatives: Is a long walk to the shops, so stock up. One thing I would change, fierce light above toilet block at night, really dazzling & attracts flying insect in huge quantities. Something gentler would do job better & probably cost less to run.

Wish owners good luck with this venture, they worked really hard all the time we were there.

Just had a fabulous weekend at Merthyr Farm and we were there for the opening of the new shower block - they are fantastic.

Such a good idea to have lovely big family showers, with oodles of lovely hot water and really good water pressure - they were an absolute treat after a good walk and some rock pooling on the beach.

The views are stunning, even when shrouded in the early morning mist, which slowly lifts to show all the treasures of the area.

This is such a chilled, relaxed place - quiet, spacious and real. A proper farm campsite that is an absolute gem. Lizzie, Bryn, Élan and Cadi are all so lovely, helpful and cannot do enough for you.

We will definitely be back

The view from the campsite is breathtaking. We planned to stay 2 nights but stayed 5 and did not want to leave. The owners were very helpful and offered to place or caravan for us with their pickup and were always on hand to help.

The facilities were basic with a small toilet and shower block but clean (and hot showers) and for the price we paid it was extremely good value for money. Will definitely go back again. Make sure you follow the directions as it is high up and others roads are not suitable for caravans.

This was the perfect site for relaxing - stunning views from all the pitches, you won't want to watch TV with views like this! Lizzie and Bryn are really lovely - friendly and welcoming and would do anything to help. Toilet and shower facilities are basic but clean and there are enough for the size of the site.

It is great if you want to walk - you can start from the site and a short drive to many more. It is a short drive to Harlech or the beach and there is so many other things to do as well. We will definitely return in the future.

This is a phenomenal campsite with really friendly owners. The use of a fridge-freezer is an excellent bonus. The views and sunsets are the finest; they really are. Our three children (7,5 and 1) loved it and really appreciated the environment.

I hate to have to report that we were driven out by a storm; when the weather turns it really does. I have camped all my life and have seen some bad weather, but this was something else. The wind literally obliterated our tent around us; it was quite horrifying.

It is such a shame to have to be negative because this site is amazing, but in order to see those sunsets you must accept that you really are at the mercy of nature's fury up there.
