I stopped here for a weekend with my two kids as I have been coming here for 6 years. The site is very clean and tidy with spotless free showers and excellent sea views. The owners are very helpful and friendly. Lots of room for kids to play and it is also very tranquil and peaceful. Some of the pitches are sloping and some are level with a few hardstanding ones. It is very reasonably priced and also a good location for visiting the north wales area.
We really enjoyed staying on this site. Found the owners very friendly, if not a little difficult to contact, suggest you phone them. The site is on a very elevated position with great sea views. The long very steep drive to the site means you would probably need to drive to the local village. We stayed on the top site with EHU which seemed to be the flattest location of the field which is rather sloping, seems to be mainly for tents. The toilet shower facilities were clean and fairly modern. You can drive to the local beach pay and display which is large and very clean, great for families and Barmouth a short drive, lovely town with a supermarket for provisions. Shell island is good for a visit, children will love it. We would use this site again, makes a good base for touring
We visited this site October half-term week after reading the excellent reviews on here and we were well impressed. The owners take great pride in their site and have invested a lot of money in the shower block and main field which is on a hill facing the sea. They built a substantial retaining wall and created flat terraces with hard standings on the lower, electric hookups and water points are in-between pitches. The shower block is on the same level as the terraces so no effort to reach.
The orientation and sea views are amazing, you get the sun all day and it sets over the sea perfect for evening BBQ's. If its been raining you won't get the van up to the hard standing without a 4x4 but the owners will help if this is the case. Some of the other pitches need serious amounts of levelling but are worth the effort if the site is fully booked, everywhere is well drained because of the hill. The shower block is immaculate and amongst the best I've ever seen, impressive that they went to the trouble and expense they did, especially as the tariff is so low at £16/night.
I have never been to Wales before and was impressed with the area and things to do in general. We'll be back time and again now and there's no way we could find anywhere better than this perfect site, I nearly didn't write the review in case it gets too popular and we can't get a booking! At night there's no light pollution and I've never seen the Milky Way so clearly.
By day there's miles of flat beach for the dogs, up the coast they are not allowed peak season because it's for nudists. We saw a couple of naked old men which was amusing for us but upsetting for our daughter, good job it is a wide beach so bear this in mind if you wander northwards with your family. There are acres and acres of huge sand dunes if they want an all-over tan in privacy.
Before arriving I Google Map'd the site entrance and unfortunately the Streetview car didn't go up the (private?) road to the site. The farm and buildings at the end of the road are NOT Parc Isaf, which is actually halfway along and the second farm on the right. It was surprising the amount of traffic that uses this narrow lane and almost everyone skims by you at speed if you are walking as they don't want to lose momentum on the hill. Will probably take the car to the beach next time even though it will only be 5 mins since I don't want to join the roadkill but enjoy the area another time. I hadn't figured on negotiating Barmouth's narrow sometimes one-way streets, clogged with pedestrians and parked cars, with our large twin-axle, and there's no escaping this unless you come in from North Wales. It would have been stressful in peak season I think, there's pay and display parking for several thousand vehicles behind the long long beach.
If this area of outstanding natural beauty is on your shortlist to visit, give the Edward's site a visit, you will simply love it!
Great site, toilets and showers spotless, pitches each had water tap next to caravan. Owners very friendly and helpful. Park kept tidy at all times. Owner helped turn our caravan around so we had a better view of mountains and sea. My husband was suffering with a bad back at time but the owner set us up, he puts men half his age to shame the amount of work he does to keep this site clean and tidy at all times. Shops and pubs near by. Also only about 5 to 10 mins to barmouth by car. Only down side was weather but its been bad every where. This wont put us off were goiing back to this lovely site this weekend but will remember our wellies just in case!
Loved the location of Parc Isaf, the views out over the Bay are a joy, and there are nice walks through the woods really close by. The farm is far enough away from town to be able to feel you're out in the country, but close enough to be near to what's going on, and there are a couple of nice pubs and a well stocked mini market within 5 minutes drive. The site and the facilities were kept very clean.
On the down side there were problems with the electricity supply, which was constantly cutting out to one of the rows of hook up points, affecting about five or six units. Also the site advertises having family / disabled facilities which we were keen to make use of, having two children, one of whom is disabled, but throughout the whole of our stay the room was kept locked, which did make things considerably more difficult for us and our son, having to use the little shower cubicles, loos etc.
We didn't see the site owners the whole time we were there, other than when we went to find them to pay, and they were actually quite hard to contact in the first place, emails we sent went unanswered, and we had to ring a few times before we got hold of anyone.
Just spent the Bank Holiday weekend at this cracking little site. We were in field 3 on one of the ehu pitches, so had a fairly level pitch, though the rest of the field has a bit of a slope. Ample room was given us to avoid a muddy area, but given the summer we've had it's not surprising to have a less than perfect pitch by the end of the season. Nice to find a site that doesn't have a 'cram them in' policy, the middle of the field was left clear.
The toilet block is excellent, one of the best of any site we've stayed at, clean and tidy and free hot showers too. The only caveat is not being able to turn the lights on in dull weather, as there is not much natural light in either the loos or the potwash area and the sinks are at the far end of the room so it was quite dark (there are lights in the showers though). They seem to be on a timer to save energy.
Gorgeous views out to sea, handy for Barmouth and Harlech while well away from crowds and bustle, we will definitely be back.
