Date of Visit: July 2016 Unit:  Campervan Rating:
Reviewer: RMarlow 1 review from this member

Definitely the best views from any campsite we've ever seen. We had an amazing stay despite having issues with our campervan on the journey down.

Bryn and Lizzie are exceptionally friendly and helpful, particularly when I ran into trouble trying (very incompetently) to park our breaking down van on the pitch.

The campsite is immaculate but relaxed, with spectacular views over the bay toward Portmeirion, east over the mountains, and west out to sea and the Llyn Peninsula. Good facilities with hot showers included in the price, and a welcoming, relaxing atmosphere.

We walked down to Harlech Castle (and were glad we did walk when we saw how steep some of the roads are in Harlech, given the state of our van!). Well worth a visit and a climb to the top of the towers for the view.

We stopped at the Lion Hotel (good beer garden) for a pint.

Harlech is a very pretty seaside town with a breathtaking beach that is dog friendly (allowed off lead even during summer months). The campsite too was perfect for our dog - although she was a little overwhelmed by the six absolutely adorable sheepdog puppies that passed through excitedly on their evening walk from the farmhouse!

Despite being on the brow of the hill, the site itself is well-sheltered by the stone walls, and we enjoyed a barbecue sitting out until dark on both evenings.

It really is a lovely spot. Would highly recommend it and hope to return.

Thank you so much Bryn and Lizzie!

An absolutely fantastic view, but very disappointing as a tent user, but excellent for caravans and campervans. They definitely over booked themselves for the amount of space and facilities they have. We were put in essentially a sheep grazing field which was not very flat for the use of tents. Similarly, there is only 4 toilets and 3 showers, with 2 of these toilets being in showers. This is not enough for the amount of people on site. Similarly there was only one washing up sink which meant there was almost always a queue. But what a spectacular view and such very nice people who run it.

If there was a prize for campsites with the best views this one would win, with views of the sea, estuary, mountains, countryside and amazing sunsets. Toilets and showers were always clean even when site was busy,

Lots of good walking from the site or a short drive to some beautiful places, Cwm Bychan is a beautiful lake, valley and mountain to walk, a must to visit.

Although the lane is narrow you have clear vision way ahead so not difficult providing you follow direction you are given to the letter DO NOT USE STAT NAV.

Lovely ice cream shop in Harlech by the castle with great sorbet too, had a nice lunch at Ty Mawr at Llanbedr, my husband had a good Sunday roast at The Ship Porthmadog. We will be back.

We came to stay at Merthyr for a couple of nights to celebrate our 3yr old's birthday. We had a choice of pitches and chose an electric hook up pitch for our tent. Pitches are flattened and ground was mostly easy to peg tent down. The views are stunning from the site and the shower block was very clean. Our friends made use of the communal fridge, and I saw there was a washer and dryer available to use too. Although there is no playground for children, the wide open spaces more than make up for this and the toddlers were more than happy running around our tents and sheep spotting. We took our children to the farm park locally, ate a quick lunch in the cafe by the slate caverns and visited a local pub with enormous beer garden so children could play safely. We will definitely be visiting again and using as a base to explore more, visit the castle and beaches, and interesting shops in Harlech. Thank you so much Lizzie and Bryn :)

Reviewer: Davecrook1 1 review from this member

Just returned from a weekend away at Merthyr Farm. It was our first trip away in our motorhome so we're new to campsites as we've only ever stayed at Shell Island in a tent.

I'm so glad we made the decision on coming here instead.

When we pulled up we were directed to the top field and were amazed by the view from our pitch.

It was around 7. 30 and the sun was setting and looked stunning across the bay.

Lizzie also tended to our dog ( as she's a vet) who managed to cut herself open on the way to the campsite. So I'm eternally grateful for her advice and help. And also was very kind in lending us a carrier for our baby. So made our walks a lot easier.

The showers always had hot water, so wasn't a rush to beat everyone there. Plus you're not charged for using them, like many other sites.

The field was lovely and neat and also quiet.

I also love the fact you aren't charged for taking a dog like many other sites either. There is nothing that I can find fault with the site.

If you enjoy walking there are some lovely walks too. And a 40 min walk across the fields can take you into Harlech itself.

If you want kids clubs and entertainment, then this isn't for you. If you want spectacular views, peace and quiet and not a crowed campsite, then definitely look at coming here.

Can't recommend this place enough, and I'll be definitely returning in the near future.

Fantastic stay at this wonderful campsite. Loved every minute of being here, clean facilities and owners who will go above and beyond their call of duty to help. Quiet family site stunning views of Snowdonia and the sea. Peaceful and unspoilt, we can't wait to return. Thank you Bryn and Lizzie!
