Reviewer: Mark in manchester 1 review from this member

 We had a great week here at Whitsun 2015. Very friendly small farm site, and really excellent value - in 2015 we paid 10 per night for the tent, with 2 adults, 2 kids, showers, hot water, dish wash, freezer all included. Hookups are an available extra, but we do not use one. Facilities are clean and basic, which is what we look for.

Two lovely sandy beaches - one walkable (Porth Towyn) across a field path (10 mins) and a huge, very quiet and unspoilt beach at Traeth Penlleth which is a ten minute drive. Lanes around here are very, very quiet - good for cycling and walking with kids, as we did. OS sheet 123 will come in very handy.

Site itself is a field in the village of Tudweiliog, overlooked by houses and a road on one side and with nice views the other way. It can be hard to find - take the lane opposite the Lion pub in the village centre, and site is up first farm track on the right.

Mr Roberts the farmer was very kind to my girls and showed them what was going on around the farm, including tiptoeing through cow slurry to feed a calf! He was also busy helping people out when a storm took out some tents (including ours) and awnings - this is not an exposed site, and I guess most of North Wales blew over last weekend.

Village shop is very useful - it's pretty rural around here, and shops are few and far between. Nefyn would be your nearest Spar, about 5 miles away, and there are large supermarkets at Pwllheli at 10 miles (20-30 mins away). Lion pub sells food which is handy - Weatherspoons food rather than a gastro-pub, but OK for all that.

Walking around here includes interesting quarry remains at Porth-y-Nant a bit up the coast, which also has a posh cafe (it is now used as a centre for learning Welsh) for those of your party less interested in industrial history.

All in all a great site - we hope to visit again soon.

 We stayed for 7 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The camping field is large with plenty of space for tents even in the summer holidays. The site has a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere unlike any other we've visited.

There were 3 separate toilets each with its own basin, soap and hand-towels. All were large enough for you to take a child in with you if required. Across the farmyard, there are two further outbuildings. One has 2 showers (free), laundry facilities, wash basins and 2 plug sockets for hair dryers etc. The other has a washing-up sink (free hot water), microwave, fridge and freezer, dining table, and TV where children could watch DVDs on rainy days. This area was a great place to meet people and have a chat; the resident campers were all extremely friendly.

The village lies 125 metres up the lane where you can find the village shop and a long-established pub offering food and drink with a nice beer garden at the front. Just past the shop you can follow a public footpath that crosses a couple of fields and brings you to Porth Towyn, a beautiful sandy beach with crystal clear waters ideal for families. The coastal path heads both east and west from Porth Towyn along which you can find numerous secluded coves. The rocky coastline and picturesque beaches reminded us very much of the cornish coastline without the crowds. The town of Pwllheli lies 10. 7 miles away offering a wide range of supermarkets and a selection of shops.

We showed an interest in the workings of the farm and the farmer was more than happy to show us around and even let us help to herd some sheep. He was very friendly and often came to talk to campers and see how they were getting on. His Australian sheep dog, Jet, was just as friendly, and could often be found playing with the children on the site. Sheep and cows surrounded the farm and brought the rural scene to life. We even caught a glimpse of the very shy young kittens that were hiding in the barn.

If you are looking for a site that is great value for money, with no hidden extras, where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and relax in a rural setting, then you'd have to go a long way to beat this site. Can't wait to return!

 Best camp site in the area, for value for money, friendliness, and facilities.

Have been coming for many years, and now have a seasonal pitch so we can visit more often.

Touring fees are unchanged at 15 per night per caravan and awning, no matter how many occupants (unlike many local sites who charge extra per occupant and even for dogs !) and tent fees very reasonable. Loads of space for tents.

Facilities very good, including large camp kitchen with fridges, freezers, microwaves and hot water on tap. Great for damp days if you are in a tent !

Excellent village shop and great family pub 5 mins away. A range of sandy, dog friendly beaches within 1o mins walking distance or 5 min drive. Free boat launch 10 min drive away.

Fantastic family site for children, lots of communal games going on, farm animals to see, lovely walks on quiet lanes.

What more can you ask for !

 This was our first trip out with our caravan, in the past I've had tents,

This site was great, the farmer greeted us on arrival, showed us round, offered us a choice of pitches, he even backed my caravan in for me, I'm a single mum so there was just me and my two daughters,

The facilities may be basic but they clean, well stocked and no extra charges, even on bank holidays. I paid 15 per night for my self, two kids and 4 dogs, electric and awning, bargain! The people in the next van paid the same but had two awnings and a gazebo.

The showers are free, I never had to wait even though there are only two. There is a common room with two fridges and a freezer, sink, microwave, table and chairs. It was a pleasure to wash up, spent more time sitting have a chat than washing

Nearby 5 min walk there is a pub with outside play area, it also does food, we didn't eat there but I was told it was good. The village has a small post office. It is about a 15 min walk to the beach. Even though we weren't supposed to on the main beach with the dog, there are plenty of other coves nearby that do allow dogs. On one of the days we walked the coastal path to ty cock beach, nice pub on the beach, we saw seals and loads of other wild life,

The highlight of our trip was how friendly everyone on the site was, we spent many evenings sat around other peoples camp fires toasting marshmallows, drinking wine. On one evening the owner of the site joined us

Definitely be back again, might be a basic site but had everything we wanted and more

 Just a note to readers I think the review by Townie_luvs_counrty (2) is for a different Ty-Isaf nearer to Bala.

I spent four nights at this campsite in early July and found it to be ideal for what I wanted. Charge was 10 for a two man tent and 2. 50 for the hook up, very reasonable for what you get!

Ty Isaf is a working farm complete with cattle, sheep, cats and dogs. When I first read this I thought animal noise at night may be a problem but its not, as the majority of animals roam the fields on the opposite side of the farm.

Its situated in the village of Tudweiliog. There is a decent friendly pub accross the road and a post office/shop just up the road. The site is situated along the main road that runs through the village. The camping field itself is a decent size and sits on a slight incline, I pitched my tent nearer the top where it was flat.

Mr Roberts the farmer is a friendly welcoming host, as I was new to the area he suggested a decent fishing spot. There are three cats and dogs which are also friendly.

Facilities are generally good, there is a small fridge freezer, sink area with kettle and hot water. Also a microwave and electric grill and hobs. (All this Free of Charge) The showers are very good and also FOC, there are only two of them at the present time, again not a problem for me because there was only me and one other caravan. There are three toilets, in two sepatate blocks, the one joined to the farm house has a light the other two don't so don't forget to take your torch!

There are lots of wildlife in the area, I saw a hedgehog on two occasions, one night he got in my tent while I was asleep and refused to move when I tried to scare him off. I've not seen House Martins nesting for years and there were at least four in the farm house, there are plenty of other wild birds in abundance that I just don't see in the city anymore. The farmers nursery field is at the back of the camping field and there were two new born calves with their mothers. My partner took an interest in them and Mr Roberts invited her to help feed them.

You're close to the coast line in Tudweiliog with beaches and coastal walks within a few minutes drive. The village itself is quiet and I only saw The Lion pub/hotel and post office. The pub owners and the local people seem accustomed to seening new faces and all friendly.

If you want more shops and pubs then there are two villages Edern and Morfa Nefyn 5 minutes drive away with a few more local shops and a petrol station. If you're into fishing like me there is a chap called Nigel who sells tackle and bait from one of the nearby campsites (Penralt) which is under five minutes drive away and sign posted part of the way. He knows the local area well and may suggest a few marks to fish.

The weather was stunning for 4 out of the 5 days I was there, cloudless blue sky and on the other day it was just lightly overcast but no rain at all.

Draw backs I can see is if the site gets busy it might put a lot of pressure on the facilities but if there's only a few people there it won't be a problem. With the animals coming into the field a lot on occasions I found dog faeces near to the pitch so will take a small plastic shovel next time to dispose of in the bin. Also not sure how sheltered the site is when the wind gets up (which it does in this part of wales). I've camped nearer the coast before and it was too windy for my little tent. Fortunately this time there was hardly any wind and the village is a mile or so back from the coast, no doubt when I return I'll put this to the test!

Overall a good experience on a quiet friendly, very reasonably priced campsite in a friendly village which was ideal for what I wanted. I enjoyed it so much I've already booked a pitch in august when I go back.

 We had a lovely bank holiday weekend at Ty-Isaf. Tudor the owner of the campsite and farm was really welcoming, friendly and full of knowledge of surrounding area.

Facilities were fine, hot running water, somewhere to wash up. There were not many toilets, however this was fine as the campsite was quite quiet.

The campsite was flat, good grounds and we were able to pitch our tent up with ease. I would definitely come back again.

The Lion pub was a stones throw away, which served good food and great ales, beer, cider, wine etc. Nice garden area too. There was a small post office with a selection of food.

It was approx 15 minutes walk to the beach. We did a lovely coastal walk from Nfyn (parked at golf club) back to Tudweiliog (about 2/3 hours) and then picked our car up the next day.

 Just returned from a one night stay at Ty-Isaf.

We pitched in the meadow by the river as we prefer the peace and tranquility by the river, also a nice campfire to sit and chat round in the evening.

The field was very flat and there was some very tranquil views of the river. In the field was a portaloo which smelled very bad as you would expect, but there are spotlessly clean toilets and showers (free hot water)at the farm which is a 10/15min stroll back through the meadows.

Stan the man was always on hand to make sure everything is ok and he even sold us some wood at a cheaper rate than the petrol stations.

Did'nt go into Bala we just took our own beer and wine and had a bbq at the night-time round the campfire. Free wood is available at the farm, also make sure you fill your water bottles before you go down to the river. The owners don't put up with any rowdiness as a family close to us found out, they were told to pack up and move on within the hour. Will be returning on Aug bank holiday weekend. I would recommend this site for peace and quiet.
