Reviewer: Marciemoo 1 review from this member

 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.

Reviewer: Woodje 1 review from this member

 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!

 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.

 Another visit to this lovely site, the views are amazing so much to see and the sunsets at the end of the day are amazing.

Goods walks from the site, we got a small book in Harlech, Walks Around Harlech, many of which can be started from the site. Bychan Lake is worth a visit and a walk up the Roman steps, if you have children the lake and river are a nice place to picnic and the first part of the Roman step walk will take you to a Troll bridge.

ONLY Follow the directions on the web site and not a problem for caravans.

Reviewer: Bdavidson 1 review from this member

 All the positive comments of previous reviews are absolutely true and this is a campsite that is hard to beat.

The views are spectacular, overlooking the sea and towards the Llyn peninsula and Snowdon. Bryn and Lizzie are welcoming and friendly hosts.

The facilities are kept clean to a high standard. There is a fridge and freezer and washing and drying machine. Extra items, not usually found, such as tea towels make everything easier. The two family shower rooms are useful. Lizzie insisted on clearing up when we created a flood by mis using one of the washing machines. There was no fuss and Bryn and Lizzie are both good at making molehills out of mountains.

We enjoyed the walk across the fields to Harlech. It took us almost an hour, but that was because we stopped to eat blackberries and take photos. Pacing it out would be thirty minutes. Bryn gave clear directions and gave us a lift back when he happened to drive past up the hill. Very welcome, as we were exhausted after an afternoon in the sea.

We stayed during a rough patch of weather, with strong winds, so we'd recommend pitching your tent well. Extra pegs and guy ropes. There are pitches sheltered by trees and stone walls, and despite it being the worst week of a poor August, the tent was fine. In this part of the world the weather moves quickly, so the sun was out much of the time as well.

The site is spacious, so that tents are around the edges of the fields, rather than lined up in rows, like the tent towns of some sites.

The area has a lot to do - visits to Snowdon, Harlech Castle Portmeirion, Caernarvon Castle, local walks and the sea. There's no shortage of good pubs, cafes and restaurants in Harlech and along the coast. Equally, time spent in the campsite can be relaxing, just looking at the views.

Being a small site, with sociable owners, there is friendly atmosphere, so that, as well as it being a good site for families, walkers in small groups or alone would find it an enjoyable place to stay.

All in all a great find, and we will definitely be returning. Ten out of ten for every aspect.

 We stayed for two nights at Merthyr Farm. Friendly owners, well kept facilities and the most amazing views. Nearby Harlech village has newsagents and local shops. Definitely a hidden gem. Will hopefully be back very soon.

 I have been caravanning and camping with my family for the past 25 years and have gone over to the continent as well as North and South of the UK. This site is absolutely amazing. The views simply take your breath away as you approach the site and then even more when you are choosing your pitch.

Both Lizzie and Bryn go out of their way to make you feel settled and happy from the point of arrival to departure.

There is so much to do in the surrounding area.

The sunsets are amazing and on a clear day you can see for miles 360 degrees.

The site is really clean and there are lots of nice touches such as t towels for drying up - soap and clean towels each day in the toilets.

The site is very quiet and has everything you need for a quiet relaxing break. We will definitely be returning again.

A real gem of a camp site - the only disappointing thing is we didn't discover this site years ago !
