As near to wild camping as it comes, with big benefits. Toilets and showers are kept spotless, no matter what the weather, I never saw them dirty. The owners, their always on hand to help. A location to die for and only 5 a night! Turn up, find a pitch and set up, no one saying that's your pitch go there, you camp where you want. It's well out of the way so take everything you need. It's a mountain farm so expect sheep to be roaming around. Fire baskets are dotted around and logs are for sale should you want a fire. Make sure your tent is well strong as the weather can change in an instant. A stunning campsite that we will use again and again.

We have been going to garth farm now for four years and we love it, it is a lovely friendly and relaxing site with views second to none, and for people moaning about the weather in the valley! It's camping what do you expect! The people who own the farm are very friendly n helpful. For those real campers out there you will love it. Just take your food with you as you are quite away out. Happy camping

We booked the site a few days before and had a very friendly chat with the farmer on the phone.

We arrived in the pitch black and pouring rain, but nothing was too much trouble for him to take us around the site and show us the toilet and shower block. Parked up the motorhome and pitched a tent alongside. We woke up on the Saturday morning to some stunning views of the lake and the mountains.

At 4 per person and no extra charge for dogs this site is certainly one that I would recommend to family and friends. Tranquil, picturesque with clean, hot showers and clean toilets to match this one can't be faulted.

The owner made us feel very welcome and having four dogs with us didn't phase him one bit. If you want some peace and tranquillity this has to be one of the best sites to stay on and we will definitely be making a return visit, whatever time of year.

As others have said, if you are walking make sure you have provisions with you as it is quite a trek to the shops

A great little site with fantastic views.

I arrived at the site during a break in the rain, the owner advised me that I could pitch my tent anywhere, advised me the direction of the prevailing wind and more importantly told me that it would be raining again in half an hour - local and friendly knowledge is most welcoming.

The site is undulating and on a working farm, so expect sheep to pop by and say 'hello'.

The toilet an shower block are clean, the showers run on a token system 1 for just over 5 minutes and are just the right temperature after a day in the hills.

There is no shop on site, so if you are walking, make sure that you arrive with provisions for the night and the morning.

At 4 a night the site is great value and I will be visiting again in the future.

I found this site on my way back from Snowdon, I was met by the very friendly and helpful owner who directed me to pitch anywhere in the camping field. There were only two other tents there so no overcrowding

The toilets were spotless as were the showers. Hot water in the hand basins and 1 tokens for the showers which were hot and plenty of time for the money.

The field is slightly sloping but there are many flat and level areas.

The setting is idyllic with views over the two lakes towards Capel Curig and up the valley to Tryfan. No shops or facilities nearby but only 5 minutes drive from Betws-y-coed.

The grass is kept short by the sheep in the field who wander around the tents and add a nice feel to this tranquil site.

I only spent 1 night here but will definitely be back; the setting is unrivalled.

No electric hook ups but this wasn't on my 'must have' list. Charged me 4 for the night which in this day and age is very good value.

Me and my other half have visited this camp site around 3 times already, and I thought it would be helpful to write a review.

Garth Farm is a hidden gem in the Snowdonian Mountains. The site is very small, quite uneven and very rocky - however the stunning scenery overshadows all of this. It can be quite difficult to pitch your tent facing the lovely lake due to an incline and can be problematic if you want to park your car close to your tent (we got stuck on our previous visit due to the ground being wet and muddy - but it was February)

The site owners are very friendly and speak both Welsh and English.

The site is a working farm and sheep are able to roam at their will, and the owner's border collie does do her rounds between the tents, but is a very friendly dog.

The facilities are a small block of toilets and showers which are adequate for the camp site's needs. They were clean on our second visit which was during peak season, but got a bit muddy in our February visit (due to the weather again!). The showers need tokens but are inexpensive.

I would recommend this camp site to anyone visiting this region of Snowdonia. It is rural, picturesque, quiet and only 4 per night- perfect for a short relaxing getaway.
