Do not stay in the Bunkhouses. They are damp, smelly and I don't believe they have had any work done for decades. I can't comment on the facilities if you were camping with your own tents but the bunkhouses are not pleasant at all.

My wife and I had our wedding here in July 2015. We chose the full venue hire for 3 nights (Sat – Tue) with the hog roast for 110 people for our wedding meal. We have decided to write a long and detailed review for Marthrown as we feel it is truly the most wonderful and special place. We cannot... More

I have travelled a lot in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam and Australia, staying in hostels and bunk houses along the way, some are good some have issues, however without doubt Marthrown is the most disgusting dreadful place I have ever stayed in! We booked a bunkhouse which was damp, dirty with mould (a lot) all over the walls, with two showers,... More

I have never left a review on trip advisor but due to the appalling state of this place I felt compelled to do so. I stayed here on a mountain biking trip with 6 others. Possibly the worst place I've had the misfortune to spend the night. Ok I don't expect much for the cost but the place is rank.... More

Thank you for helping make my Daughters wedding such a success, couldn't have been more helpful, the facilities were perfect for a Humanist wedding, everyone was blown away with the site and all the accommodation, loved it, thanks again.

Booked onto the campsite for a wee family holiday. We are experienced campers and thought from the description on the website that we were in for a real treat. Sadly not the case. This is essentially wild camping with basic facilites which is fine if that's what you are expecting but that is not made clear on the website or... More

As the title says a bit of a mixed review. I'll start with the good points. The pitch - the pitch was flat(and all the others looked flat too), and in a woodland area. We were fortunate to be there with only one other tent, it felt like we were wild camping. It was lovely to just sit and listen... More

Please Please read this and take note of the comments made. The pictures and the website bare absolutely no resemblance to the site we visited in may 2015. In fact it is clear from the web site that they were probably taken at least 10 years earlier.On arriving we were met by the owner. Wheel barrows are provided to carry... More

Marthrown of Mabie is great for taking groups of young people away, they have the freedom to explore in a safe natural environment. After taking a group there I decided it was were I wanted to get married. We booked the whole site for a weekend so we could spend time with our friends and family's. We had about 100... More
