Reviewer: Paulieccc 1 review from this member

I stopped here on a solo bicycle tour at the start of July.

After cycling 100km that day I was not at all pleased at the size of the hill getting up to the farm, I thought it would never end.

I must say when I got to the top the views were absolutely breathtaking! Well worth it.

Owners were very friendly and I even got a spin to the town for a beer after my long day.

At 5 pounds a night it was a bargain too.

I will return one day, but hopefully with a wife and kids and not a damn bicycle! :)

Lovely site up in the hills away from the busy coast. But not too far to drive down, about 10-15 minutes down to Harlech.

Amazing beaches all along coast and short drive to Portmeirion and Portmadoc. Great views of the coast from up high and very safe for children to run around and play.

The showers and toilets were very basic, but I think they were goingto update them this year. Cows all around in the fields which was lovely to look at.

There were a few hook ups. Would definitely go back again. There is two ways in so if towing a caravan just check which way in would be best as it is a narrow lane with no passing places.

Despite timing our stay for possibly the worst weather in months, this has to be one of the most picturesque sites we have stayed at. High up above Harlech, the site has amazing views across the bay to Port Merion, Porthmadog and beyond to Cricceth.

The facilities though basic are warm, clean and more than adequate and the showers are hot and have both stools and hooks for clothing which is a rarity. There is a handy and large fridge freezer for everyone to use and there is plenty of hot water for washing up.

The couple who own the site are welcoming and were more than willing to help us put up the awning (I think they felt for a 6 month pregnant woman trying to haul an awning up!).

We will return to this site (though we may wait for better weather!), and our 3year old daughter loved seeing the sheep that kept appearing in the field. My husband and I also got our amusement from a fluffy tabby cat that shouted hello through the awning to us.

All in all a lovely no frills site.

Stayed at this site for 5 nights and had a great relaxing time.

Every pitch is spacious and all have fantastic views and ever changing scenery.

The owners are very friendly and more than willing to help you should you need it.

If you follow your sat nav you will turn onto a little country lane that is very narrow a steep which is fine if like us you only have a tent, However if you are towing a caravan or trailer then you ignore the sat nav when it tells you to turn and carry on through Harlich and out along the cost road where your sat nav will send you up a much wider country road that is fine to tow up. This adds a few miles onto your journey but is a much better option.

Being ex-caravan owners we would have found this 2nd route no problem.

I promise you will not be disappointed

This site is a true gem. As soon as you leave the main road and start to climb towards the farm, you pass through a small wooded area. When you enter the clearing the views take your breath away. After about a mile and half you reach the farm entrance where you are met by sheep and cows roaming freely

The site is spread over 2 fields electric and non electric, there are no worries about space as it only has 14 pitches and each pitch has a view to die for.

There is a plaque on 1 of the pitches from someone who camped there for over 30 years sadly they have passed away it reads "Just what the doctor ordered" never a true word has been spoken.

The site has 2 showers with red hot water, toilets sink area for washing and also a fridge freezer to keep the beer chilled. Bryn and Lizzie who run the site are 2 of the nicest people I have met they cant do enough to help, as this is a working farm they are out working all day but still have time to stop for a chat and a drink {lol).

You are only 3 miles from Harlech and the beach so even though you feel you are on top of the world civilisation is on your doorstep if you want it, but once you hear the silence and see the views,staying put is the best option.I could go on all day about this site there are no minus points. The best thing is to go there, I promise you wll not be disappointed.

The number one asset of this site is the view, the pictures don't lie - it's like being on top of the world. It can get a bit windy up there at times.

We had one night in the last weekend in june and paid 12 for two adults and an 8 year old. There were eight tents and one caravan pitched during our stay so things were very quiet.

There is no road noise, you are miles away from the main road. The last few miles of road leading up to the site is both steep and narrow - not for the faint hearted if towing something.

The site is two fields attached to a working farm - the owners took it over last year and are gradually making improvements. At the moment, things are quite basic, there is a small shower and toilet block (clean and tidy apart from the odd insect) but no washing up facility (we used the disabled toilet basin). Showers were free but I think they are intending to introduce a charge.

There is a single stand pipe in one of the fields for drinking water. There seemed to ba quite a lot of pitches with electric hookups but we did not use one. There are facilities for recycling. There is no shop of any kind - nearest in Harlech.

We had a BBQ, which seemed to be fine as everyone had one. Then we sat and watched the view of the sun going down over the Western sea. It was fantastic.

We were lucky with our pitch, some of the field is gently sloping, if you don't mind sleeping on a slope that's fine. We like flat pitches and did manage to find one.

Locally, this is a lovely spot. The beach behind Harlech is great with a cheap car park near by with plenty of spaces. Miles of golden sand suitable for sand castles. There were some lovely cafes and restaurants in Harlech itself as well as a theatre for that evening treat. You can see right into Portmerion from the site. Barmouth is 8 miles away and snowdonia is not much further.

We will be returning.
