We visited this site last year. We enjoyed it so much we decided to come back again this year.

The site is well off the beaten track, which is why we picked it. Saying that, it is fairly straight forward to find if you follow the owners' directions, and there are some amazing views along the way. Harlech is only a few minutes drive away.

There are four camping fields, two of which have EHU available. The EHU pitches are terraced and are good sizes. They are reasonably level, though quite stony in places. We were there when Hurricane Bertha visited. Being high up and quite exposed, I was a little worried. It got quite windy, but there were no problems.

Being so high up means there are fantastic views across the bay towards Porthmadog and Criccieth, and some amazing sunsets!

The facilities are perfectly adequate for the site, and better than some I have been to. There are two family sized shower rooms (shower/sink/toilet), two other toilets and a separate shower. There was always plenty of hot water, and they were always clean and well provisioned. The kitchen area consists of a sink, double drainer, fridge/freezer, washer and dryer. Again, this area was kept clean and tidy, and there was always a bottle of washing up liquid available in case you didn't have your own.

The site is well placed for all the attractions in that part of North Wales. We regularly visited Porthmadog, and even went as far as Llangollen and Llandudno.

Lizzie and Bryn are extremely friendly and helpful, and the family do a fantastic job running the site. We really enjoyed our stay, and would have no hesitation in recommending Merthyr Farm. We look forward to our next visit.

A fine, quiet and well located site. Although this is on the side of a HUGE hill, the field which I was in was tiered. The plot was level enough, but could have done with being a smidge wider to allow my tent to be pitched on one level. As it was, one edge of the tent landed on the slope up to the next pitch. Saying that, it was really a problem, it just meant that I could get everything symmetrical.

The Good bits.

The views are spectacular. The owners are very friendly and I found it amusing to wake up to find sheep nibbling on the grass outside the tent. The toilets/shower block are basic (as most campsites are), but clean and spacious. No problems there.

Not so good bits.

The only thing I can think of is the road to the campsite, which is very tight at places. FOLLOW THE ROUTE ON THEIR WEBSITE!

So, in a nutshell, it was a very pleasant stay and I would recommend this site.

Great campsite with amazing views and sunsets owned by a happy, friendly family. We received a warm welcome and as site was not to busy we were able to select our own pitch. The owners Lizzie and Bryn were helpful and approachable. The facilities were kept spotless and cleaned twice a day. As it's on a hill it is a windy site. My daughter (6) loves animals and enjoyed the company of the farmer's dog and all the animals. The highlight of her stay was being taken around to feed and stoke the animals.

What a fantastic site! We have not camped for years and are wondering what took us so long. This amazing site is a couple of miles from the main road high up in the hills. The spectacular views have to be seen to be believed. The owners work on the farm, there are eggs for sale and animals all around. Having owned up on arrival to having a rather pathetic two person tent, the owner suggested the perfect spot-sheltered but stunning-and our two nights' stay was wonderful. We felt like we had been away for ages- in a good way! Harlech is a short drive away, as is a lovely beach with a great cafe nearby at Llandanwg. Unbeatable site for views, setting and peaceful, low-key atmosphere. Watching the lights come on along the estuary as we drank a toast to our re-discovered joy of camping-memorable!We will be back

This is by far the best campsite we've ever visited. It was our second time (first time in 2011) and again we were impressed by the stunning views. The site is well away from the crowded caravan parks and the beaches are wide enough for everybody. We promised the owners to write this review but we'd rather keep this beautiful spot for ourselves. So don't tell too many people about it and just enjoy the clean and spacious facilities with enough warm water for which the owners trust you to be sensible in use. Enjoy the enormous variety in walks around the campsite (climb Moel Ysgarnagod, a worthwhile day walk right from the campsite). Enjoy the working farm. For us it's fascinating to watch the people working together with the sheep dog to move sheep from one field to another. Enjoy the very spacious pitches, especially when you don't need electricity. We had a pitch on the top field and we loved the quiet and peaceful spot only 'disturbed' by sheep.

We have just returned from a wonderful 2 night stay. This site had the most stunning views and is really peaceful and relaxing.

The owners are friendly and helpful. Our 5 year old daughter loved walking through the fields with the sheep, cows, chickens and ducks.

The roads to get to the site are narrow and the sat nav took us the back route on the way there which was interesting! The owners are happy for you to call ahead and will give you the best route avoiding the tricky roads.

The toilets and showers were clean. We had no complaints at all during our stay. We only have positive things to say!

Overall we would highly recommend this site and we look forward to returning soon!

Thankyou!

Lindsay, Steve & Isabelle Johnson
