We booked with our 6 and 7 year old kids for 2 nights and left after the first. What we thought would be a family friendly site wouldn't let us into the clubhouse with our children unless we were having a meal (despite only one other customer being in there). The play park must have left a lot to be desired as our kids much rather preferred not to play there. The site itself reminds me of a car park or a disused runway, all tarmac and no grass. The shop was a beaten up portacabin with items stored in padlocked cages. The toilets contained signs warning against the smearing of faeces (which was the final straw in our decision to leave early). The only positive was the attitude and kindness of the owners who were obviously embarrassed by the clientelle that they have recently attracted (partying until the early hours - the offenders being ejected early the next morning).

The owners have a great deal of work to do to turn things around here.

The site was easy to find and accessible. The grass was maintained well and there was a nice shower/toilet block. It appeared that there were not many touring pitches, mostly semi--permanent tourers in fenced off pitches with little gardens etc. We stayed for 3 nights in a tent, 4 people and I think their pricing structure is a rip off. Because we wanted electric the price went up from 6. 15 per person per night to 8. 15 per person per night. That equated to 8 per night for electric and only being in a tent we only plugged in our 12v coolbox and charged our phones at night. I don't spend that much electric at home with all the appliances a standard home has! My mum and dad came with us, in a caravan with a heater, water heater, electric kettle, microwave and were charged the same per person as us. With only 2 of them in the unit this equated to 4 per night for electric - how is that fair! The shop was self service and you left the money in a tin - very trusting if you ask me! Because this site is up in the Brecon Beacons do not expect nice weather, it rained constantly but when we got to Cardiff it was glorious sunshine! There is a couple of train stations within a 10 minute drive. There is nothing in walking distance. There is a pub/restaurant on site but we didn't use it so can't comment

Just returned from a 10 day stay at Pen y fan and had a fantastic time. We are a large family with 5 older children one whom is disabled. We were greeted by the lovely warden who was a great help throughout. The toilet facilities were lovely and clean and warm, and the disabled bathroom the best ive encountered and even had a little changing bed which was great for changing my 11 year old son. The kids had a ball, meeting other kids and exploring the surrounding area and have already asked to go back in the summer. The shop was open 24hrs and well stocked. Looking forward to returning soon 😊

New to camping, bought a tent and went to this site as it is near us to try the tent. A lovely well maintained and friendly park, , toilet and shower block very clean. We enjoyed it so much ended up staying 3 nights! The pub on the site is friendly with lovely food and the warden is very helpful. Fab views and walks to the pond and wind turbines and not far from town centre. Would definitely go back. Enjoyed it so much would love to site a caravan there! It helped that we had fab weather. Loved going to the old ice cream van that has been turned into site shop, lovely touch.

We came to this site as it is local to us just to test our caravan after it came out of winter storage.

The toilet and shower blocks are spotless and warm. The on site shop/van is always well stocked and the pub serves lovely food. The staff are very helpful and friendly.

Only downside to the site is that they are always improving it and in some areas it looks like a building site.

With lovely walks around the lake and local surrounding areas and just a short drive to the local shopping centre it is very enjoyable.

Went to visit pen y fan caravan site just for a day and decided to book in for couple of nights to test out our caravan, toilet blocks always clean, site is lovely and clean, owners really friendly. The seasonal pitches Are a great size just pity there isnt loads more available for people to site as would be ideal the site shop is brilliant stocked well, lovely walking path, and near by pond beautiful in the sun. Only down side is pub not always open, park needs to be a bit bigger, maybe some entertainment a little water park would be a great asset to site. Over all would return plus hoping to put name on waiting list for seasonal pitch
