Reviewer: Frozer 5 reviews from this member

 What a find! Such a lovely welcome, even an offer of help to set up (in very inclement conditions).

This is a farm site, with powerful, hot, and free showers, flat well kept pitches for tents, several fields to choose from and explore. The views - oh the views! Even the children were captivated, trying to spot where they'd visited, which beach they'd been to, and where they'd like to explore.

Booking was reassuringly simple and friendly, the facilities really are ideal for families, with large family shower rooms, and clean washing up facilities. These are housed in an old building, and Lizzie and Bryn are planning more showers / loos / sinks. While they aren't state of the art, they are cleaned regularly, and fit well with the warm welcoming ambiance of the farm. We didn't need to queue to use anything.

The beach at the bottom of the hill is ideal for families and is clean and dog friendly. One last thing - take notice of the instructions of how to get to the farm - We had to help a motorhome who was wedged between two drystone walls on the tiny lane down into Harlech - This is one time to follow the rules and not go exploring!

Thank you Merthyr Farm Team for making our few days so relaxed - we will be back

 Beautiful location up above Harlech with stunning views towards the Lleyn Peninsula. Incredibly peaceful.

Personable owners who check site and facilities regularly.

Nice flat pitches. Plenty of space.

Good clean facilities. Only negative. 4loos/3 showers for 24 pitches. May be a queue.

Great area for exploring - local walks Portmeirion, Harlech, Barmouth.

Would I come back. YES!

 Loved It Loved It Loved It. Views and Sunsets to die for. You need to have everything with you if in Motorhome as nowhere near to replenish provisions and taking van offsite not easy. Lovely spacious site great facilities. We enjoyed the walk to Harlech but it's not for the infirm. Would stay again and recommend

 Blessed with gorgeous weather this has to be one of the nicest sites with the most beautiful views we have ever stayed on. You are high up and it is possible you may have your head in the clouds at some point. The facilities have been described by others and I agree they are just what you need, clean and tidy regardless of tent, caravan or motorhome. It is dog friendly which is more than can be said for a few people on the site! It is a working farm and some sheep may well have access to the pitches along with the owners dogs, on a few occasions our dogs were joined for lunch by the owners old dog 'not a problem'. The route to the site is well described on the Website, use the other routes at your peril. The local beaches are dog friendly and very big, they are also very shallow and rock pools can be found on them so great for the kids young and old. We will most certainly be returning this summer if we get the opportunity.

 We've just come back from a week's camping at Merthyr Farm. Normally we'd travel to two or three campsites over the week but it was so lovely here that we decided to stay the whole week!

We pitched our tent in the top field on a great, flat pitch and could park our car right next to the tent.

The views are incredible, right across the peninsula and over to Snowdonia and the sunsets were breathtaking. Just perfect to sit out in the evening and enjoy supper lapping up the vista, whist hearing the sheep and cattle settling down for the night.

A short walk to the toilet block - the best showers on a campsite, that we've found ( power shower and really hot water), all at no extra charge. Spacious family shower rooms with chair and hooks to hang your clothes and towels and even liquid soap and hand towels if you've just popped down to wash your hands.

Two clean washing up areas with detergent and sponges! Fridge and washing machine and drier.

The whole site was relaxed and quiet, although on a working farm, the hosts are so welcoming and accommodating that nothing is an issue. The charge per night was excellent value.

The drive is great up to the farm but use the route they describe from Llanfair as the other two roads are very narrow and steep and we got stuck behind a herd of cows and had to reverse for quite a distance.

There is a small Spar shop in Harlech, open until 8 pm and two take aways (Chinese and Indian)but no pub - the next town has the Victoria Inn pub which has good food. More shops in Porthmadog, with a large Tesco and even a Millets superstore!

Lots to do in the area - castles, Portmeirion, Snowdon, beaches, Ffestiniog, walking, caves - just fabulous, a real variety for all weather conditions!

We highly recommend this site and this area.

 We have just spent 2 wonderful weeks on this beautiful site with outstanding views. Lizzie and Brynn could not be more helpful and welcoming. The weather was fortunately hot and sunny as the site is a little exposed. The facilities were excellent for campers and caravanners alike.

The approach is a little daunting for towing a caravan. However Lizzie or Brynn kindly offer an escort as there are limited passing places. But donít be put off as the views are worth it !

 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. 

Date of Visit: May 2018 Unit:  Trailer Tent
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.
