 Parc Isaf was a small, friendly oasis of calm and tranquillity.

It is placed ideally to have access to fields and forest but views of the sea and coastline.

The facilities such as toilets and wash-up areas were clean, brightly lit and well maintained.

Nothing to dislike at all, except perhaps the need to move it to a warmer, drier country!

 Everything was spot on - we felt very welcome, facilities were excellent, and what a view!

(Wi fi would be a good extra - although we know you donít offer it currently)

 Just got home from a lovely few days at this little gem of a site. Wanted to stay in the area but as like everyone lots of places were booked up. The site is up a steep hill it is signposted but it is a small sign so you have to look out for it.

Arrival we were told where to park up and to pay when we had settled in, we had an electric pitch on grass which did slightly slope off but we could have rectified it if we moved the tent. Water was right by our pitch and the facilities were just a few feet away.

Lovely clean facilities free push showers with hairdryers for the ladies and three toilets, there is a washing up room with a washer and dryer that are coin operated and a freezer for you to use at your own risk.

If you were in a caravan and in the lower level your view would be amazing as even though you are higher up the coastal view was fab.

The site is clean and tidy and they have other accommodation for you to hire. The owner is lovely and friendly and isn't in your face at all which I really liked.

There are a few local shops if you turn right off the site and the beach is a short drive away or a decent walk if it is what you like to do. Barmouth itself is a ten minute drive although the parking can be a bit of a nightmare.

All in all I would definitely return to this site the only downside was the phone signal isn't the best but that can be a bonus for some.

There isn't any play area for children but our boys were happy to play with all the other kids on site it was fab to hear them all laughing together and playing games rather than having their heads stuck in technology.

Will defo go back but with our caravan next time 👍

 Very nice, quiet and clean site.

Our pitch was hardstanding and terraced so had a great view of the bay.

The massive beach is in walking distance, or there is a car park at Benar beach.

Great view of sunset from the road beside the site.

Easy to get to Barmouth and further. There is a station in Dyffryn Ardudwy and a bus service. We had transport so didn't try them.

 Lovely site in great location for beach, coast and Rhinog mountains. Good views. Possible to walk into mountains or along coast from the site.

Facilities closed due to Covid but pitches with hook up good. Small play area for small children. Not near off site bars, restaurants or shops.

The scores I give are in consideration of the peculiar circumstances of the World under Covid.

 This is a regular stay site for us. The site is clean and quiet with stunning views. Its great to sit back and chill whilst the farm works around us. The Edwards family have run the farm/site for many years and it is smoothly run and very well kept. There are many returners which shows how nice it is there.

Lots to do out and about and a couple of pubs with great food within walking {tough} distance.

Reviewer: Juliebelper 17 reviews from this member

 This site, a few miles out of Barmouth is in a picturesque location, a short drive off the main coast road. The road up is narrow but there are several passing places. It has 3 fields, the first 2 for caravans and motorhomes, the 3rd for tents, which is where we pitched.

The large tent field did take motorhomes too, whilst we were there. In saying it is large there are only half a dozen EHU pitches all against the one fence. This felt cramped considering the rest of the field was practically empty. Fine if you don't mind nearby neighbours, thankfully we were lucky to have friendly quiet families next to us. The EHU pitches are marked with wooden posts, being about 7 to 8 metres wide.

You have a view of the sea in the distance one way, but we'd all pitched facing the other way into the field with a view of the countryside.

The facilities, I felt were good and kept very clean and tidy by the owner, just not enough of them. Comprising of men's and ladies toilets and showers, the ladies having only 2 showers, which with the amount of holidaymakers on site did lead to queues. Plus a couple of sinks, not private or curtained off. There is a unisex disabled/family room, with good hand rails, accessible shower and baby bath and table. You get the key from the owner on arrival. I'm not sure if there is more than one key though! In the same block is a washing up area (with only 2 sinks - more queuing, but time to chat with fellow campers) a washing machine and dryer. A fridge/ freezer would make a welcome addition.

There is a Spar a short car journey away, but we used the good sized Co-op in Barmouth. The nearest beach is 1 and a half miles away, with a pay and display car park and a dozen or so free road parking spaces.

I didn't see any rules posted up and only saw the owner once on site, but she is very pleasant.

I booked over the phone after an initial email, paid the deposit by cheque, then the balance in cash on arrival.

 This site is set in a lovely location within walking distance of the lovely, clean and quiet Dyffryn Ardudwy Beach. The site facilities are clean and functional, if a little like the changing rooms at a swimming baths. The lights in the toilet block were not working one night, which was a bit inconvenient in the dark. Unfortunately, the pitches are too close together, and despite booking in advance, we were given a pitch right next to the toilet block and bins ('it's the only one left', we were told, and had to go and find it ourselves), so it was like Piccadilly Circus most of the time, with kids messing around near the bins till around 10pm. It certainly wasn't a relaxing atmosphere, which is a shame, as it could be a really nice site. We paid for 3 nights, but only stayed for 2. We will not be returning.
