We have just spent the most idyllic weekend at this campsite. We are a family of 4, our children are 7 and 4 and we have a small dog. I cannot begin to tell you about the views, they are breathtaking. The owners make you feel very welcome.

I would recommend this site to anyone. The prices are very reasonable. It is not on a beach, so there is a car ride and a small walk to get onto Harlech beach, but that was lovely too, not too crowded.

The only downside is that the shower facilities are very basic, but that would not put me off going again, in fact I have already been checking the diary. The owners have said they are investing in the shower block next year.

There are no amenities within walking distance, that could be a bad or a good thing. It certainly did not affect our holiday. Absolutely wonderful, the nicest campsite we have ever been to and can't wait to go again.

What a fantastic place! We made a last minute booking through this website for this site for ourselves with a caravan and friends with a tent and having not seen any photos set off not knowing what it would be like. To say we were pleasantly surprised would be a massive understatement to say the least.

As soon as you turn down the driveway to the farm you are greeted with the best view from any campsite that we have ever seen (and we’ve been to quite a few!). The location on top of the hill above Harlech lends itself to spectacular panoramic views from the Llyn Peninsula right across Snowdonia to the Rhinogs behind you.

The owners were around to great us and were very friendly and helpful- we were made to feel very welcome. It is a small grassy field with room for only about 10 caravans (with hook-ups) and another grassy field next to it for tents. It wasn’t busy when we were there so we put the tent on a pitch next to the caravan. If it was full though the pitches are pretty big so you could easily have a caravan and tent on the same pitch without feeling at all cramped.

The facilities are fairly basic but were nice and clean and well maintained and were more than enough for the size of the place with two hot showers and three toilets. There isn’t a washing machine at the moment but the owners are looking to put in a laundry room in the near future which will be a welcome addition to the site. We stayed longer than we had planned to and were starting to get low on clean clothes!

If you are looking for a small, quite beautiful site then look no further. We had a holiday the kids will never forget- they got to feed lambs and loved going to take carrots to the horse every day. Both Harlech & Llandanwg beaches are only 10 minutes away and there is plenty to do in the surrounding area. We’ve already booked again for the summer holidays!

Very peaceful, friendly farming family who are willing to go the extra mile to make your stay a good one. Plenty of local knowledge available upon request.

The views are amazing. We were advised to walk up to the top of the hill above the farm and watch the sunset, this is so worth while. Apart from the sheep bleating, you can't hear a thing, you can see adjoining counties and the Snowdonia range. In the distance, the lights of Portmadog and Portmerion twinkled as the sunset created a deep orange sheen on the sea. It was magical.

Our Collie Katie had a good time too, she is easy to control and with that in hand, she could walk off her lead which makes a big difference to us and her! She enjoyed playing with other dogs on the site as well as the farm dogs.

When we had problems with a piece of equipment, Bryn Roberts the farmer was able to direct us to a good camping shop in Portmadog. His and Lizzies girls also enjoyed playing with Katie and other children staying on site.

It is nice to spend time 'back to basics' as it were with no TV and computer games and lots of peace and quiet! There was no 'night disturbance' and everyone on site seemed to get on well and were friendly towards us which we liked.

The farm also has a pet sheep called Dolly, quite a character by all accounts!

Must mention 'hot showers' which you don't get everywhere these days! They were lovely, and we didn't have to pop out to put 10 in the slot either.

There are several 'little railways' to be enjoyed, Katie was welcome on these too. You can catch these at Portmadog. Tesco's in Portmadog is good for getting all the usual and they have leaflets for all local attractions.

The beeches are long and separated in to people and dogs which is fine by us. The dog friendly beaches were long and lonely. Dog poo bins are available too.

Surprisingly, the castles are plentiful in the area and have survived extremely well.

We will be going back ASAP, loved it.
