 Merthyr farm is simply the most wonderful campsite, and I have visited many! The view across Morfa Harlech from its elevated location simply never loses its “wow” factor!

Watching the sun set over the Lleyn Peninsula is a real treat !

The site is a perfect location for setting off on all day treks through the gorgeous countryside. Mountains, ridges, the world’s finest beach and wonderful undulating countryside mean that every day can be different and yet every day you return to the splendid view,

Excellent facilities, friendly welcome and start to plan for the next adventure!

Having just returned I am already looking at my diary to plan the next visit this summer!

 Wonderful views, frightening road up to it!

Of course it's worth it once you are there, and the road is very quiet. BUT it's nearly 3 miles of single track with barely a passing place. I would suggest that you would only go once with a caravan.

It's also remote, Harlech only has small shops. The easiest one to get to is just off the main road, on the way to the beach, a boring expanse of sand in our opinion.

If you want better beaches, go to Porthmadog, turn left in the town, left again after about a mile to Borth-y-Gest. Park up and walk away from the village to where there are lovely coves, best accessed at high tide.

To sum up, everyone should go there once

 What a fabulous site. Only stayed one night but wish we could have stayed longer.

Absolutely beautiful views from our pitch.

Excellent facilities with showers, laundry room, sinks for washing up fridges etc.

We were made to feel very welcome and will definitely be back and will recommend to friends and family.

Reviewer: Gremlinsontour 1 review from this member

 Absolute gem of a campsite.

The facilities are always immaculate the showers are amazing and free no having to keep pushing a button every 30 seconds to get water like other sites.

The owners who run the farm are outstanding they are welcoming informative and take pride in there site,

The views are incredible every pitch we could see had the same awesome views,

We don't usually go back to a campsite but this was our 2nd year and I can't wait to go back.

Also Snowdon is very accessible from here and you can see the Snowdonia range and the llyn peninsula from the site,

Beautiful place beautiful people and dog friendly

 Just returned home after visiting this site.

The site has plenty of levelled pitches with electric hook ups and loads of space around each one.

The site was very clean including the toilet block and sinks. It is a short drive into Harlech which needs to be done with care.

The owners Lizzie and and her children were great. They took people to feed the lambs and interact with them which my girls really enjoyed.

The views during our stay were amazing.

I think we will definitely go back.

 Cracking campsite with Incredibly stunning views over the mountains and estuary.

Good facilities with hot showers. Laid back atmosphere and lovely owners.

A perfect site to stay, sit round a fire and chill out.

Some lovely walks on the doorstep and easy enough to get around the wider area.

Thoroughly recommended.

Would love to visit again.

Thank you Lizzie and Bryn.

 Well it didn't take us long to come back - 3 months.

The site was busy but Lizzie and Bryn are great hosts, giving advice and keeping everything clean, tidy and mowed.

The wind can gust and coming straight off the sea they can be very strong. This of course cannot be controlled, and it doesn't put us off coming back.

 Great view, friendly campsite and clean facilities. We really enjoyed our stay and the beautiful hot weather was a bonus.

The campsite had a lovely spacious feel and we never had to wait to use the facilities.

We had electric hook up but well thought out facilities if you didn’t.

The drive up to the campsite was no problem and the surrounding area was beautiful, lovely village, amazing beach and surrounded by mountains.

We didn’t do any local mountain walks but Bryn on hand if you need advice about where to walk from the campsite.

Reviewer: Nick+charlotte 1 review from this member

 We've been camping for over 20 years and I think this is the best site I've ever been to. The views are amazing (check out the Google maps 360' to get an idea), every time I opened the tent to come out I was stunned by the view, it really makes for a special experience.

The site is on a working farm and is on top of the hill overlooking Harlech, you can see the castle from the site (as well as the sea and the hills and mountains of Snowdonia, including Snowden).

For me I really enjoyed the remote feel of this location but there's still a lot to do in the surrounding area, so your not too far from everything. It's about 12-15 drive to the nearest shop selling food, so we'd advise bringing as much as you can with you. (The nearest Tesco in Porthmadog is the only one in a large area so is very busy and didn't have much stock when we went).

The pitches are large and where we were the pitches were terraced into the sloping field, this means there's quite a bit of space in between pitches and your at a slightly different hight to the pitches next to you.

My wife struggles to sleep if the pitch is not flat and she was fine as the pitches are nice and flat. As the owners say on their website, the ground is rocky and I'm glad I took their advise in using rock pegs as you do need them, you'll be lucky to get standard pegs in without bending them.

Also being an exposed site the rock pegs keep things secure if the wind picks up (which it did for us one night). It didn't get muddy when we had thunder and heavy rain thanks to the well drained rocky ground.

The toilets are good, you have your own sink in the toilet and even though we stayed over the jubilee bank holiday weekend if I ever had to wait it wasn't for long. The showers were fine.

The owners are friendly and even helped me close my overloaded roof box when we were leaving and gave me a rachet pulley to secure it! Very kind of him, I wasn't expecting such generosity.

So if you like a site that's away from it all with some of the best views you can get, large spacious well drained pitches with friendly owners at a reasonable price, then look no further. This sight is just what I was looking for.

 I've wanted to visit this site for years, and finally managed it on the week of the Jubilee bank holidays. It's everything the previous reviews promised - thanks UKcampsite! - but somehow even more so when you're there in person.

The view is preposterously good, even when the weather is rubbish: there's so much of it that it's never entirely obscured by cloud, and you can watch the downpours over the mountains from the smug comfort of your unit.

There are some things worth mentioning which you may or may not think of as negatives. It's a long schlep to get anywhere and even the A-roads are narrow. The water supply is private and can run short when the site is full - I imagine this is why there aren't many showers. You'll probably have to queue at busy times.

You'll likely experience some strong wind which can be exceptionally gusty. Given the ground is quite soft but very stony, you'll need plenty of good, long rock pegs so you can cross-peg; it's probably worth double-guying too, if you're of a nervous disposition.

Lastly, mobile data is a bit sketchy by teenager standards.

Other than that, everything's brilliant. Lizzie is delightful and helpful; the pitches are terraced and enormous; the grass is like a lawn; the facilities are beautifully kept; there's good walking straight from the site and absolutely tons of things to see and do in the area.

We did the big zip lines at Blaenau and even managed a taster lesson with Fly Snowdonia, along with the more traditional holiday pursuits.

There's bags of room in the middle of the field for frisbee and catch etc.

We'll definitely be back.
