We arrived at this site in appalling weather and were very aware that there is only one way into the site if you are towing. We followed the instructions to the letter and arrived without any problems (although it was a little worrying that halfway up to the farm, a man driving the other way wound his window down and asked us where did we think we were going with that on the back ! He said that we would never get round the hairpin bends ! As it turned out the bends were beyond Merthyr thankfully !. You must follow the instructions if you are towing.

The site itself is basic, a proper farm, but the facilities were more than adequate. The washing machine was playing up as we found out when we used it, it went on forever, much longer than it should have, and someone mentioned that the tumble drier was expensive for just 20 minutes. However you have all the facilities that you would need.

The views are absolutely spectacular, I have never experienced views like it, fantastic. Harlech is approx 2 miles away, so if you fancy a drink or need the shops you will need to use the car, you could walk but a round trip would be nearly 5 miles.

This site is very good, views to die for, adequate facilities, pleasant hosts, no play area for children but they seemed quite happy playing with their bikes and balls etc. The field is sloping, but some pitches have been terraced so ok.

I can see why everyone loves this site but we personally found it a little too far out from Harlech (which is a lovely little town). Although I suppose it has to be to accommodate such beautiful high views. We will not be returning to this site. But as I said before I can see why everyone especially with children love it.

Well…. Where to begin! This is a fabulous family run campsite/farm in Harlech with outstanding views from every pitch with plenty of room.

On arrival we were greeted and helped by the owners. This was great help to get some quick advice on the area and the places not to be missed (invaluable advice on a short stay) and on that note the ice cream shop was out of this world!

The facilities were very well maintained and regularly cleaned

As someone else has commented, there are 3 routes to the site and the given instructions are important! I ignorantly went the satnav route and could have easily got myself in trouble if I had, had a bigger camper. I went home the instructed way with no problems at all.

Thanks again guys and we will see you again soon :-)

We spent one night here, although intended to stay two - unfortunately the gale force wind defeated our tent so we had to pack up and go home. I would echo everyone else's comments, the site is basic but in a beautiful setting and the facilities are clean and well cared for. Owners (and their dog Moss!) make you feel very welcome and it was quite entertaining for my daughter to be camping on a working farm. I would also agree that hard ground pegs might be useful and keep an eye on the wind forecast because it is quite exposed at the site.

In terms of the surrounding area, the beaches are fantastic and unspoilt. It's a ten minute drive to Harlech which has sufficient shops, castle and a swimming pool.

We had a fantastic 5 night stay at this campsite.

We were in the non-electric tent field - amazing views and sunsets.

The facilities were lovely and clean - 2 family shower cubicles with large shower, wc and basin. And then a couple of other toilets and a single shower. We never had to queue and lots of hot water!

Wash up sink and also fridge and freezer which are free for campers to use- great for changing ice packs.

There's no children's play area, but you don't need one - the kids were off making friends and meeting and feeding the chickens and pigs! Had some very fresh poached eggs for breakfast!

Owners very friendly and pretty laid back - they printed off a weather forecast for us midweek.

Amazing quiet farm site with clean facilities and the most beautiful views - what more could you want for £20 a night!

Am writing this as we are on the camping field. This site is great. From the spectacular views of the sea and estuary, to the rolling hill fog and windy gusts. This is a great location. The site is very clean and very well kept. As well as looking after a family, running a working farm and looking after campers and there problems, lizzie was also on the mower cutting the grass yesterday. I don't know where they find the time! We are on the non electric field which has some shelter of walls and a tree line. Yesterday we had glorious sunshine all day then came the rain, strong winds and hill fog. It was spectacular! The field does not get affected.

Would fully recommend you visit.

(Just make sure you bring your hard ground pegs with you)

We have just got back from 4 days at this site, but really wish we could have stayed longer! The views across the bay were amazing and the pictures on the site really don't do the real thing justice!

The site is well maintained. The showers are lovely and hot, even after a few minibus loads of DofE campers took over! And the shower blocks are always clean and well stocked with loo roll! Just don't make the mistake I did of going to the loo in the middle of the night without shoes and the drive has stones on it! Ouch!

Plenty of electric hook ups and level ground to be able to pitch tents.

My 2 year old daughter loved all the animals roaming around freely and it was quite amusing one morning when we left for a day trip to come face to face with a huge black cow stood in the gateway!

If you are looking at staying here make sure that you ok low the directions from the website as it can be a bit tricky going up two of the three roads.

Normally we tend not to return to a campsite but this is one we will be visiting again. Good blue for money and the perfect spot for a bit of peace and quiet. Loved every moment!
