Wow, what views! Fantastic outlook a panoramic view over the Llyn Peninsula and Snowdonia. The sunsets were amazing.

The road leading to the campsite is mostly single track, 2 miles up hill from the main road, into the mountains. A lovely friendly welcome from the owners, lots of advice for walking routes. A suggestion is to request a flat pitch and ask it be reserved for you. Two fields with electric, one without. Picnic area with benches and stunning view. Clean showers, toilets and washing up area. Fridge & freezer for campers use and laundry facilities.

We walked into Harlech downhill and across fields, the walk back is steep, took us just over the hour.

Unfortunately the nearest pub has closed down. There are a few in the lower part of the village. Harlech is quaint and quiet.

The campsite is isolated in a rural setting. Good 4g signal.

An absolutely wonderful campsite. I can't imagine a place with a better view - it is breathtaking. Great facilities as well. The showers are really really powerful and it's nice having the family shower rooms with plenty of space, also very clean. The picnic area was a lovely spot to eat dinner. I only wish we could have stayed longer - we were doing a cycle ride for charity and so could only stay one night. If we had the time we could have stayed for weeks! Thank you to Bryn and Lizzie for their generosity towards our charity ride.

This is an exceptional site. We had the very Best of weather to complement the outstanding views. Even in June not over busy but what a place.

Grass pitches but doubt they get waterlogged.

Great owners both very helpful but they leave you alone. Facilities are rustic from the outside but outstanding on the inside. Clean. Regularly checked and spacious. Showers are unbeatable. Very impressive.

The location is high on the escarpment overlooking Harlech and the estuary. Scenic doesn't do it justice. And the sunsets are to die for. There is a magnificent viewing platform on site.

This is one of our favourite stops on our UK and Ireland tour. And we will definitely be back in the future.

Reviewer: Dan.tee 2 reviews from this member

We've camped in plenty of UK sites over the years and I can happily say this is the best yet - hands down, no argument. So what's so great about it? Well, my criteria are simple - there's gotta be good, free showers. There's gotta be silence in the night. And there's gotta be ground you can actually get a peg into. Merthyr Farm has a tick in every box. The showers are amazing - hot and high pressure and free. There were only other families camping when we did, and the noise at night from about 10. 30pm was zip - nada. The pitches are mostly level (ish - but we have a trailer tent so we don't really care) and soft enough to easily take a peg.

But that's not all Merthyr has. Situated as it is, overlooking the Afon Dwyryd valley, the wonderful owners have actually built a view point, complete with tables and benches so you can have your tea in comfort as the sun dips below the horizon. It's just stunning - you can see Portmeirion and Harlech Castle.

The nearby beaches are fabulous - there really is nothing negative about this site, and if we're not camping there again next spring half-term, I'd be very surprised indeed.

We stayed at Merthyr during the time of the last two reviews & are both wondering if we were on the same site & planet as Mr. Berberen! First & foremost you must understand that Merthyr is a working Welsh Hill Farm run by a young couple with young children & it is a total privilege to be allowed to stay in their home which you must respect. Yes there is sheep poo & yes, animals do die in strange places on rare occasions - it's a family farm!. If you want underfloor central heating & manicured pitches go to an Adults Only Caravan Club Site & pay for it Mr. Berberen. The toilet block is one of the best. The power shower in the 'family shower' is better than the one at home! The towels are changed three times a day & we met Mrs. Roberts in there at 11.30pm one night cleaning ready for the next day. We have stayed at Merthyr in the past and it can get very busy at times. The majority of the campers have been coming for years & families with children are always welcomed by the Roberts' whose own two delightful young children enjoy meeting & playing with. There is a 10pm curfew on noise clearly stated on the noticeboard in the toilet block. We don't think Mr. Berberen read this either. Perhaps the lack of sleep he had clouded his judgement! And we didn't complain about him! Nevertheless we had a brilliant time, lovely weather and views to absolutely die for. Walking down to Harlech over the hills was a great experience & we can only say a big 'Thank You' to Merthyr for a holiday we won't forget for all the right reasons.

An amazing site, really welcoming owners, views are just the best. Sea views, mountains, fields, fresh air. We have visited here for many years. By far our favourite site ever. JJ, RJ and Buddy Dog.

Reviewer: JennyandHuw 1 review from this member

We have just spent 3 nights at Merthyr Farm at the same time as Ricky Berberan, and simply cannot believe he is talking about the same campsite. We found the owners Lizzie and Bryn to be helpful and always available, and the shower block is one of the best we have found on our travels. Maybe he was hallucinating re the sheep and dog in there? We did find him and his friends to be noisy and inconsiderate, with small dogs that yapped, so if they do not return I doubt anyone will mind.

The views from the campsite are fantastic, and we will visit again as soon as we can.

Reviewer: Debbie Randell 2 reviews from this member

Looked great when we turned up, fantastic views. The showers could do with up grading and don't much like sharing towels so insisted on using our own. The road going in is not good and we had trouble getting out as cows were blocking us, so I've given it 3 stars for the location.

This is a stunning campsite with amazing views of the sea and mountains of Snowdonia. The owners are helpful. Facilities are excellent (showers, washing machines, sinks, hot water, electric socket to use hair dryers). Excellent value. Its a long drive to get there down a single track lane, so probably a bit tricky with a caravan, but its worth the visit with a car and tent. Excellent. Loved it!

Reviewer: Ricky barberan 2 reviews from this member

The best way I can put this is it's a great shame, the location is stunning especially in the weather we've had this week as for the Campsite well where can I start? Reading the other reviews I am stunned that the actual site has been rated so highly the shower block is like something from the 1970's and I was amazed when we saw a dog and some sheep in there, towels are hung up in there and I certainly wouldn't use towels that have been shared? The owners are probably trying their best but are clearly struggling to cope. children ride their bikes in the shower block and I had my wash bag taken by them, whilst walking around the site we discovered the carcass of a sheep which was revealing it's bones so obviously had been left there for some time, the owners are so busy they don't make their selves available to you and are difficult to find, gates are left open for sheep to wander and poo attracts flies they need to either concentrate on farming or camping and either get someone in to manage the camp site or the farm so they can focus on one business and run it properly nice location but won't go again.
