Reviewer: Macey-lilly 1 review from this member

We were looking for somewhere close to Harlech to camp for a week during the summer (my father's family having come from Llanbedr, Llanfair and Harlech and myself having been born in Barmouth and lived in Harlech in my former years) we wanted to visit the area and relive some memories. Found Merthyr Farm by accident and how glad we were we did. The views are stunning, the campsite is away from the run of the mill caravan type park, basic but very very friendly.

Bryn Roberts saved our holiday when we got absolutely soaked on our first Sunday when the weather turned positively horrendous, torrential rain and gale force winds, the winds damaged our tent and everything we had was sodden. We were about to give up and go home when he offered us the use of the family static caravan. We cant express how grateful we were and how much we appreciated this offer.

The farm is a working farm which adds to its appeal, sheep grazing the pitches, farm dogs welcoming you in and out, and a little ginger cat who welcomed everyone. Oh and we saw red kites woohoo that ticked Mr Macey-Lillies box indeed. We would recommend this farm, family and site for even the shortest of breaks. It most definitely re-charged the batteries. The facilities were basic but very very clean and well kept, also being upgraded. The showers are fabulous, plenty of room and good water pressure, toilets always fresh and clean, there is also a fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer situated in the block. You will need transport to get to various locations, but on the other hand hikers will have a field day, loads of walks and mountain paths to follow.

It only gives you the option to grade this farm site out of 10 for customer service I would award 20 :-) xx

We will be back.

Just returned home from this wonderfull site,

Very nice family run site with good facilities for a small site & views to die for. Bryn & Lizzie seemed to be always on the go doing bits around the site, well kept & clean. Good walks straight from the farm (as long as you want to make them) or not too far from beaches but need to drive. There are three touristy trains near by, one runs along the coast, one is the ffestiniog rail way from porth madog, & the other from Porthmadog to the north coast which looks like a nice run though the country side, a must if you like train trips

We will be going back to Merthyr Farm again as there is still lots more to see in the area,

Arrived very late on a very rainy Friday night around 8. 45 pm to find the owners having their tea. After being shown what pitches we could have we set off and promptly got stuck on the muddy grass. Bryn came to our rescue with his pickup and parked the caravan like an expert.

The following morning we woke to a fantastic sunny day and an equally fantastic view. You can see for miles! We bumped into Lizzie who gave us some feed so we could take our 18 month old son to feed the lambs and calves. I think this had to be the highlight (for me).

We then headed to Harlech Castle and spent a wonderful time touring the old ruins and eating some fantastic ice-cream.

The beach close by at Llandanwg is wonderful and not busy at all. The sea and beach are very clean and we had no worries letting our son loose for a run around.

The shower block was busy and I showered about 11am and the water was running a bit cold by then.

Bryn and Lizzie were very busy but had plenty of time to help you out if needed. A very warm and nice couple.

We will definitely be back so watch out Moss!

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.

Specifics:

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.
