Our second visit, but I still managed to follow the sat nav, still it kept Will fit opening and closing the gates as I drove down a farm track for a few miles, Please do pay attention to the instructions on their website.

Wonderful welcome, and we set up in a free space (near a large stone in the corner of the campsite). The views are superb, and to watch the sunset from the tent whilst having a last drink was one of the highlights of the week.

Warning, it's worth keeping an eye on the weather and specifically the wind whilst you are there. We got blown off the hill one night when the wind strength got stronger than our tent could withstand, a mixture of a tent with headroom, fibreglass poles and an exposed position. But it only affected one night, and in my view the vista from the tent made up for it.

I read a review that complained about only one sink, we were their for the week, and only on e had to wait for than a few minutes whilst another group finished off. I think the facilities (shower, toilets, washing machine and dryer and the washing up sink) were excellent and always very clean.

Definitely worth a visit, and we'll be back at some point (going to Scotland next year).

The site is just above Harlech (and the town and castle are worth a visit, oh and so is the fish and chip shop). We also visited a number of other locations in the North West corner of Wales, with a couple of trips that ended on Angelsey. Lots to do, all of which is to too far from this wonderful site

I have just returned from a weeks camping with my husband and our 3 boys aged 3, 5 and 7. The views from this site are jaw-dropping. Although it is 'out in the sticks' it is well worth the small drive to feel so close to nature and to appreciate the stunning back drop and the peace and quiet. The facilities on this site were great and exceptionally clean. The large family shower rooms were brilliant and the indoor washing up area was clean. We made use of the freezer for our ice packs. We had a huge flat pitch with EHU which was situated close to the toilet block. There is a large picnic area overlooking the sea, mountains and everything in between! The site owners and their children were all really friendly. There's loads to do in the local area. There are a variety of beaches, a great slate mine tour, a huge selection of mountain railways and of course loads of great walking. We look forward to visiting again. Thanks Lizzie and Bryn. Ps DO STICK TO THE RECOMMENDED ROUTE UP THE HILL. THIS IS AN EASY DRIVE. MY INLAWS TOOK A DIFFERENT ROUTE UP AND WERE THOROUGHLY TRAUMATISED ON ARRIVAL!

Arrived at the campsite in awful weather after walking for a full day with tents on our backs. Bryn was extremely kind and allowed the 6 of us to take shelter in their barn, even bringing us hot drinks to warm us up. We couldn't have asked for more from the family as they allowed us to use all the facilities and extra. If it wasn't for Bryn's kindness our DofE expedition would have been a lot less enjoyable.

Would whole-heartedly recommend this campsite to anyone in the area.

Thanks again,

The DofE Lads

Had a fabulous time at Merthyr Farm, even though the weather wasn't behaving (as usual). Bryan and Lizzie the owners were so helpful, especially when we ran out of tent pegs. They went out of their way to help find some. The toilets and showers were cleaned constantly with the added bonus of hand wash, towels, washing up liquid. This may not appear much but when you're camping these tiny things make all the difference. It is a working farm and it was fascinating to watch how hard they work. Extra special were the views and the daily visits from the farm cat, dog, sheep and stunning Bulls. Will definitely be back

We have just returned from a week in a tent at Merthyr Farm. To put it simply, we will be returning next year, without a doubt! This site is exactly what we were searching for to escape our city lifestyle with our two active teens and Labradors! Brilliant access to a whole range of activities, walks (some straight from the site) and beautiful villages and towns. A working farm with excellent basic facilities. Don't visit expecting mod cons, this is exactly what we were avoiding and all adds to the charm of being on a 'real' farm. Toilet and shower facilities are incredibly clean and we waited no longer than a few minutes to use them. We chose a pitch without electric hook up and had no problem finding a flat site with the most incredible views across the estuary. Nothing is too much trouble for the bright, cheery owners and their young family. A real gem!

Just back from a week at Merthyr Farm and we have had a lovely time. Camped in a tent with my husband and our 3 young children (6, 4, & 2).

I'm currently 19 weeks pregnant so we asked to be near the toilet on a EHU pitch and we were given a gigantic pitch very close to the loos but separated by a wall so it never got noisy on our pitch. Most pitches looked very big on the field we were on, with a couple of smaller ones.

Lizzie and Bryn are both really friendly and approachable. Both took time to chat with us and advise us on nearby attractions and the best roads to take. The farm puppies came onto the site to play with the children, which my kids absolutely loved. My daughter had an accident on site (as 2 year olds sometimes do) and Lizzie was straight out to help with first aid and direct us to nearest minor injuries unit.

The facilities block is clean. There are family shower rooms with toilet and shower, plus a further separate shower and 2 further separate toilets. All were clean and there was never really any wait, perhaps once or twice at peak time we needed to wait a minute for a toilet.

Showers were warm. The facilities block also has a kitchen area with sink, fridge, freezer, washing machine and tumble dryer. Small but reasonable charge for washer and dryer. We had our own fridge in the tent so left the fridge for those on non EHU pitches, but made use of the freezer for ice packs for picnics. There was a queue a few times for the sink for washing up, so perhaps another sink would be useful.

The road up to Merthyr is quite steep, but manageable. Though we did get sent by our sat nav by one of the not recommended routes and that was a bit scary. So stick to the route they recommend on the website!

We had a big variety of weather. Some lovely sunny and warm days were we all caught the sun. We then had a day were the whole camp site was in a cloud all day, with horrible fine rain. And a day of gale force winds. We did have to take our awning down because of the wind. In fact a lot of tents on the site needed to do the same but Bryn was an absolute star and came out to the camping field and helped secure the tents. The site is definitely better in good weather as its high and exposed, but I guess this is the price you pay for the amazing views you get when its nice.

There is plenty to do in the local area. There are 2 lovely and very different beaches nearby for sunny days as well as lots of walks. We also found plenty to do on the not so nice days and there are plenty of things we didn't get to do.

Over-all a really friendly and absolutely beautiful site. Really enjoyed our stay and hope we can come back again in the future.
