 Fantastic clean site, photos don't do site justice,

Close to beach, if you can find better you will be hard to please,

Cleanliness second to none,

Reviewer: Dxc02 13 reviews from this member

 A full 10 from 10 from us. My previous review for Glan Morfa Mawr was in 2013 which was exactly the same.

We visited in July for 10 nights and then again for a long weekend in late September, though they are really two different holidays due to the volume of tourists in the area the site remains consistent, the friendliness of the owners and the fellow caravanners alike is very relaxing indeed.

The facilities are still spotless, always clean, always warm and dry. There have been some tarmac roads and paths installed since my last review, each year there we have noticed changes to the site, some small and some more intensive.

Don't worry about the "Site Rules List" which appears to pop up on the odd review on here, they are basic rules that make your stay a comfortable one assuming that everyone adheres to them, exactly the same as other national caravan / camping affiliates.

Well done to the proprietors for achieving and attaining a very high standard.

 We turned up unannounced late on a Sunday afternoon and were blown away by the welcome and standard of this site. It is immaculate. Beautifully laid out with outstanding facilities.

Canít disagree enough with the poster who complained about the rules. We didnít see any that caused us any problems. We ate outside and relaxed in the calm atmosphere that comes from a site that does mostly cater for adults. I guess itís horses for courses really. There are some family sites that donít work for us, however the children who were knocking about the site today seemed to be enjoying themselves.

In the end, itís personal choice that matters. This site rates in the to 10 of the sites we have visited. If not the top 3 (and we have been camping for over 30 years).

Reviewer: Cymraeg Caravanner 2 reviews from this member

 A well-presented but most unwelcoming site unfortunately. As others have said, not just here but on Google, Facebook, TripAdvisor etc. Glan Morfa Mawr provides Arrivals with such a minefield of rules that it ends up quite a miserable place to be.

It is of course, entirely at the owners' discretion what and how many rules they implement but with this many you feel it's impossible to move without inadvertently breaking one.

Those who enjoy it seem to be 'older adults' or 'empty-nesters' who don't want to cook outside while camping and to whom the A4 page of rules doesn't really apply anyway. So if thatís you then doubtless youíll love it. (We're in our early 40s self-employed and with 2 very well-behaved, polite and employed High Schoolers, by the way. )

However, Morfa Buchan is gorgeous area and as such there are MANY campsites to choose from, so Iíd advise pretty much anyone else to book one of the others on offer.

Reviewer: Irvine45 73 reviews from this member

 Yet another visit to this fantastic site. It may not be to everyone's liking as there is no club house or children's swing park. But it is a very quiet site about a mile from the beach and the facilities are second to none.

Thanks for another brill weekend.

Reviewer: Irvine45 73 reviews from this member

 Thanks for another great weekend on this site. It is always well laid out and the facilities are always immaculate.

When I had issues with my towing electrics, the staff were on hand to help me get moving.

A first class site, that I will continue to visit.

Reviewer: Banditmum 4 reviews from this member

 We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this newly refurbished site. We were given a warm welcome and the owners were always helpful and friendly. The facilities are spacious and spotless with every amenity needed. The site is clean, well-organised, quiet and close to the beach at Black Rock Sands. We were so impressed that we booked again for next year! Ron and Jacki and dogs.

Reviewer: Irvine45 73 reviews from this member

 This is my second visit to this site, and I can say the very high standards which I was first impressed with are still in place. The little shrubs between the pitches as starting to get bigger so it is an improving site all the time. The pitches are all hard standing with slate, so don't forget your rock pegs if you want to put a awning up, I struggled putting up an airer. They are large and even my inexperienced reversing onto the pitch was a doddle.

A good base, with a 15min walk to the expansive Black Rock sands.

I would recommend this site. First class

Reviewer: Dave Donnelly 2 reviews from this member

 We stayed two nights as a trial of the new awning for our motorhome, and chose this site after reading other reviews as there are a few in the area and we were not disappointed !

Great services and large pitches, very friendly and helpful staff and friendly fellow users.

Well laid out and well kept.

The toilet/shower block is immaculate and the setting with the mountains as a back drop is fantastic.

The pub in Beech road is not too far to walk to and has generous portions and serves a lot of campsites, so clean and good service but fairly basic decor etc.

We would like to return for a longer stay and explore the local area more.
