 I truly fell. Head over heels for Merthyr Farm Campsite! The views were outstanding! The owners are the most friendly, approachable people and they continually strive to make sure we all had what we needed and we were happy during our stay!

Also the shower, toilet facilities are immaculate and very modern wet rooms! Plus a kitchen on site for dish washes and cheap cost for usage of washing machine and dryer! Plenty of fridge and freezer available!

And all that surrounded the site was beautiful! A perfect location and not far from grocery shops, and landmarks to visit!

I am most definitely going to revisit Merthyr again! Its a real find, not many places as good as this! I recommend to anyone 100%

Thank you so much for having us!

 The 2+ mile drive from the A496 up to the site is steep and narrow with few passing places, but providing you follow the site owners instructions and not your sat nav it shouldn't be a problem for even the larger outfits.

The site itself, as others have already said, is high on the hillside with magnificent views over Harlech, the coast and distant hills.

The pitches are all grass, well cut and fairly flat but may need a bit of levelling but nothing too bad. EHU is good and the toilet/showers are spotlessly clean.

As you would expect from a rural site, there are no shops withing easy reach, the nearest convenience store is Harlech itself on the A496.

Nearest main supermarkets are in Porthmadoc (20 mins+ drive) and the nearest bus stop in the village of Llanfair (2 miles)or the railway station in Harlech. A great site for walkers with Snowdonia on the doorstep. Plenty of lovely beaches (some restrictions on dogs) and lovely towns to visit in the area.

Due to its location it can be very windy so make sure awnings & tents are well pegged down.

To finish, one of the best views we have ever had from a site in the UK and we will certainly return.

Reviewer: Quacke 1 review from this member

 We received a warm welcome to a lovely site. We were given the choice of a couple of pitches with absolutely fantastic views right across Harlech, the castle etc. Glorious!

The site itself sits way up a hill in a remote location that was a bit of a mission to access for us in a Motorhome but excellent in-depth directions are given to get there and it is so worth the effort to stay in such a wonderful setting.

The showers/ toilets were spacious and clean and the wash up area had washing/ drying facilities. There are no shops or pubs within easy walking distance but this suited us.

We walked via the field footpath down to Harlech to visit the town and castle which took approx 3/4 hour each way and although our dog had to stay on lead due to sheep he had a fabulous time!

If you want peaceful, fab views, good facilities and want to do some scenic walking, this place is for you.

 This site has the best, most far reaching view of anywhere we have ever stayed. Admittedly this disappears into mist on rainy days, but it really is the perfect spot.

Be sure to follow the directions on their website, as the access is up a single track, steep road.

The grass pitches and fields were beautifully kept, with stone walls that really are a work of art. Loos and showers were well maintained and clean.

A good spot for walkers, as the hills behind, towards the Rhinogs were easily accessible with waymarked paths.

We will most definitely be back.

Reviewer: Big M 1 review from this member

 Fantastic views and such a nice site. We had 3 nights here and loved it.

We were met by Lizzie who showed us all the facilities.

The site is lovely and quiet, beautiful views, great facilities, showers were great, sinks were clean in the washing up area, very impressed.

A couple of things worth pointing out, the site is a couple of miles from Harlech and it's up a hill, quite a steep hill, walking or biking into the village requires a bit of effort on the return journey. If you were towing a caravan you'd need to be a confident driver and don't follow your sat-nav, follow the directions on the website.

Can't wait to return.

 Stayed 3 nights at this fantastic campsite with the best views of Snowdonia and Llyn. Owners really helpful and friendly.

Rarely go anywhere twice, but we will revisited this site.

 This is a lovely, working farm campsite, with fabulous views, and a relaxed atmosphere.

I must have met 3 different people whilst there, all of whom were really friendly.

I shall definitely be returning.

 The site it excellent, with great toilet/shower block as well as fridge/freezers and washing machine/tumble dryer facilities. There are plenty of activities in the surrounding area.

Unfortunately, it is subject to disruption in very windy conditions, and our tent was just not up to the 45 mph winds we encountered there. This, sadly, halved our holiday duration from 6 nights to only 3.

We don't normally go back to the same site twice, however we would definitely return to this site again, but hopefully with less windy weather!

We also recommend the fish and chip shop in Harlech (opposite the short-stay car park).

Reviewer: MikeandSam 20 reviews from this member

 Such a lovely site we would recommend it if you are planning a visit to this area.

We had lots of good information before we arrived and clear instructions about payment - and the all important route to the site information. Ignore this at your peril.

This is a large site with generous pitches. One amenities block with 5 individual toilet/wash basin cubicles, two shower rooms and 2 family shower rooms with loos.

A bit of queueing at peak times (!) but nothing unreasonable. Plenty of free hot water and the shower rooms are nice and big with ample hooks and a stool so there is none of that nonsense with your stuff being wet from the shower. Nice strong water pressure too.

The utility area has fridge freezers and laundry facilities and two sinks for washing up. Everything is well maintained and kept nice and clean throughout the day.

Pitches are flat, a bit stony; but given the terrain, that's expected too, so don't expect every peg to go in first time. Even after heavy rain the site drains well so you shouldn't get stuck in the mud.

The views are extensive over Cardigan Bay and across the estuary towards Porthmadog, Port Meirion and up into the Snowdon range as well as out along the Llyn Peninsula. This is where the site is a real winner.

Plenty to see and do from here. The beaches at Harlech are magnificent. Fish and ships and cafes in the village (no late opening). Supermarkets and a bigger selection of shops in Porthmadog.

Bryn and Lizzie run a friendly campsite, are really welcoming and show great consideration for the comfort and welfare of the campers here. A weather forecast warning was posted by them on the utility room notice board because of their worries about the tents in high winds and rain - and with this storm predicted for the weekend at the end of our stay we had to cut short the trip.

No playground here for children but it's a nice safe site for them to explore a bit and no traffic apart form campers coming and going.

 We really loved this place - the view alone is worth a million dollars! Farm site, Lizzie and Bryn very friendly and welcoming.

Bryn even gave us a lift down to Harlech one day, and we walked back up. NB do follow their instructions about how to get there - the direct road from the centre of Harlech is indeed very steep, narrow and winding!

Fields slope a bit but not too bad, facilities basic but good (showers excellent) plenty of electric hookups if required.
