This was our first visit to North Wales and we chose this site based on reviews on here.
Glorious part of the world and so much to explore!
The site itself is excellent - the site owner clearly takes pride in keeping everything spick and span as I bumped into her at 0530 in the morning outside the toilet block - where she pointed out a fantastic sunrise over the Snowdonia mountains in the distance!
Facilities are top notch - clean and modern. We liked the fact that there were fridges and freezers available at no extra cost (for a tent with no hook up this is somewhat of a boon and enabled us to buy provisions and keep them fresh!)
Yes the showers cost 50p but for that you get ample time to do what you need to do - even fussy ladies who takes a little longer than most. I am happy to pay 50p if it guarantees hot water.
We went on a quiet week - only on the last night were there more than 3 or 4 tents in the spacious field.
The local area is beautiful. We took in a sup at the Ty Coch Inn (number 3 in the world by all accounts of fabulous beach bars) and also visited Aberdaron which has a lovely beach. There is a beach at the end of the track but it is for the more confident of foot to get to. Not quite mountain goat standard but almost. Once at the headland though you are treated by outstanding views. Were it not for my wifes pathological fear of cows we might have done more walking in that regard.
The nearest 'big town' is Pwllheli which to be honest is something and nothing. We travelled there for the Asda as we thought we 'needed' to shop at a big supermarket chain. If you can get away with steering clear of a small town traffic jam the Spar supermarket at Nefyn is very very capable of catering for all your shopping needs.
We stayed here for a week over the May Bank Holiday we were very impressed with the site. The shower block and washing facilities were of a high standard, the play park was fantastic for the children as there was plenty to do. We stayed on the large field with friends and had a great time playing rounders, cricket and frisbee as there was lots of space. We had a bbq most nights, the site is in a great location to visit all the local beaches and villages. The owners and children were very welcoming and friendly always willing to help and give advice. We have already booked again and would recommend this site to anybody as we had a lovely holiday.
We arrived at Hirdre Fawr on the Tuesday after bank holiday Monday. We were booked in on the Monday but after seeing the forecast rang the site and asked if we could have the same amount of nights but delay it by a day - what a good decision that was, they had a monsoon on Monday with winds to match. What we liked about this was the flexibility shown, whereas other sites we would have either paid up front and got a 'no' or would have refused.
The site is situated in a lovely location ideal for Pwllheli, Aberdaron and Nefyn. The site was quite wet when we arrived, not surprising with the amount of rain that had fallen. We were lead by Annwen to the large open field which was probably the wettest, but it was just about OK. Pitched up next to the road, which was very noisy, we would try and get a pitch away from the road next time.
The facilities here are excellent, very clean and modern shower/toilet blocks and on par with other sites where we have paid considerably more per night. The rubbish allows for recycling and the washing up facilities are excellent, clean and loads of piping hot water. Great play area for our kids and lots of kids for making friends. The owner was always around if you needed any advice but was never intrusive, you hardly realised you were staying on a working farm! There was also a great den and rope swing area for kids at the back of the farm. The beach is lovely, we spotted 12 seals very close in which our kids loved. The TV reception was excellent, this goes agianst the digital checker on this site which says no coverage!
There is a general store and post office in Tudweiliog just up the road 1. 5 miles and a small store the other way to Edern about 2 miles, both have all that is needed for a camping stay. We visited the farm adjacent to Hirdre Fawr (you cant miss it as there are 1, 600 free range cluckers roaming around) to get some eggs, well worth it they were the best eggs we have tasted, Emlyn the owner here is a real character too!
We will definitely visit this site again, in fairness with all the rain that fell the site stood up to it really well. Thankyou for a great stay.
Went to visit Hirdre Fawr Farm over Aug Bank Hol weekend. We went as a small family group to celebrate my Birthday and found the campsite fantastic value and a very well run, efficient and in a beautiful location.
Loads of other reviews tell you what is around so I wonít repeat all that info. We were located in the spacious field, yes next to the road but honestly it did not effect our stay at all.
Annwen and her husband were often around to help if we needed any local advice.
We were lucky enough to be going to the site when they were holding there end of season Barn Party. What can I say - we all didnít stop dancing til the end. I hope it raised a good amount for the Air Ambulance.
My tips would be to visit the Ty Coch Pub on Nefyn beach. A little gem and Towyn beach.
We had a very enjoyable time and are definitely planning a return visit next year.
All in all an excellent campsite, flat well kept pitches with electric hook ups, play area for the kids with plenty of room to run and play, well equipped clean showers and toilets. Great washing up area with free of charge fridges/freezers to keep your fresh/frozen food in (altho freezers were very full). The best part was the private beach along a path and through 2 fields (about a 15 min walk)or if your car was up to it you can drive to the cliff edge. A bit of a scramble down to the beach but worth all the effort as its quiet, clean, private and perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and jumping off the cliffs into the water. If your patient enough you can spot the grey seals off shore. Would not hesitate to recommend this campsite to anyone looking for a great campsite in this area.
