Stopped here for one night on the way back up to Scotland having collected a trailer tent from down south.

So glad that we did, what a lovely site.

So much to do for the kids and so much space for them to run around.

Facilities were looked new and were spotless, we didn't need them but there was a whole row of fridges and freezers rather than just one.

Only negative is that at £30 a night for two adults and two kids with a hookup its the most expensive site that we have stayed on.

Just retuned after a fantastic 8 nights stay, at what can only be described as the best campsite we have visited and what others should aspire to be.

Family run site that is friendly, welcoming and relaxed. With the family who couldn't be any more helpful. The site is well maintained and not too manicured. Also the little touches such as seats around the lakes.

We stayed in the 'quite corner' which was good for us and our dog as literally out of a gate and miles and miles of beautiful walks. The guide we got at reception gave ideas and pubs location. We were at first concerned about pitching on the hard standing but the pebbles are small and don't cause any issues with ground sheet, and comfy under foot.

The facilities -

Toilet and shower block - spotless, warm and very well maintained with free showers that you can have the water as hot or as cold as you like. Showers also are a very good size to dry and change in without every thing getting wet.

Drying room - Fantastic for campers, used when showered at night so not having a wet towel in your tent.

Free fridge & freezers - clean and in a room with the most fab idea for phone charging ever! & local area leaflets for attractions.

Washers and dryers that take £1 coins and we used £2 for a good decent wash and a further one to dry. Also there is a iron & board in there.

The New café - A stroke of genius! Fab Fab Fab! (also sells beer and wine for after a long journey)

Information was always available posted around main area such as pub closure & local plant sale etc.

The lakes - a great place. Although cold as you would expect in mid May I had 3 fantastic swims with my dog. Great Fun!

Well positioned for visiting different areas, we can not fault this place and will definitely return and recommend.

First class Thank you xx

We've wanted to stay on this site for a while and eventually we made the time to visit of the Whitsun Bank Holiday, we weren't disappointed, and it was definitely worth waiting for.

The children loved the kayaking and the walks and open space. Not a play area in sight, but the place doesn't need one!

The toilet facilities were immaculate, and it was lovely to have a shelf in the shower area- so many places don't which is a pain - it's the little extras like this that make a difference.

The owners were friendly and helpful, and could even pronounce our surname which is always a bonus!

A wonderful site, that we'll certainly be returning to, the children even asked before we left when we were coming back. That says it all, I think!

This is our favourite campsite and we have visited several times. Our children aged 9 & 14 have always loved it. A great place to get away from it all. The owners do a fantastic job and are always very helpful.

The shower block is only a couple of years old and is the best of any campsite we have ever been to. Plenty of room and always lots of hot water.

Fab site. We have returned for the last two years after staying in the cottage the first year. Amazingly clean facilities, good pricing for the pitch and the views and surroundings are beautiful. Great for walking and of you hVe dogs that like to swim as well. We are already booked in for September. Can't wait

We were here for a few days over the May day bank holiday. As usual Kate, George and Will have done a fantastic job in keeping the site clean and tidy. Always a warm and friendly welcome! A couple of new things since we last came. Reception has been upgraded and they also have the addition of 2 Bell Tents set up to hire. We did have a peek through the door, looks lovely!

We spent our weekend in the 'Quiet Corner'. This suits us as we have excitable young dogs, so nothing to disturb them! Plenty of good walks around the site in beautiful surroundings. Facilitites exceptionally clean and warm.

We love Wills own bacon and sausage, you must try them!

Cannot wait to visit again!

Our only niggle, and this is nothing to do with the site or the owners, is that someone was picking up after their dog, but then left the bag on the floor. Cannot really understand why they bothered to clean it up, and then leave it on the floor.

We always pick up after ours and then just pop it into our bin. Not difficult!

We were recommended this site by friends and booked up for the end of the Easter school holidays for a 4 day visit. It's a real back to basics campsite, the fact is there's no kids play area, bar or entertainment. So if that's the kind of site you like this isn't for you.

We had an amazing time, no play area, no problem!. Our kid's 7 and 4 just loved playing in the streams that run through the site with buckets and nets, there's also 2 fantastic lakes, one you can swim in and even our Labrador had the best time ever. You are allowed to hire Kayaks (for a donation to the air ambulance) or take an inflatable in.

The facilities were modern, very clean and well respected by all who use them, mopping the shower out after use. They even had a drying room which as you can imagine with all that water around was a God send. The water is provided by tap from a borehole which tasted far better than any I've ever drank. They have a small honesty shop on site selling the essentials like lovely organic tubs of ice cream and milk, bread etc.

Some great local attractions, our favorite was the Red kite center, it was an incredible site watching 300 - 400 birds swooping down for their food.

Builth Wells was only 5 miles away in case you forget something or fancy a meal out. The views are breath taking in the area and we will be definitely planning another visit soon. The owners and all the staff were very kind and would go out of the way to help you or advise you in local matters. This is a real gem and reasonably priced. 10/10 from us!

Lovely site. Always a friendly reception. The hard standing pitches are scattered amongst trees, plus there's a huge field. A group of the hardstandings are reserved as a quiet area so if you don't have kids you might want to request one of these. There's a lake and a large pond in the grounds and several walking routes starting from the site itself. Cycling routes too, but only if you have really low gears on the bike! There's enough hard track and tarmac for the kids to ride their bikes around the site while you relax. The facilities are large, clean, and airy.

I have been to lots of sites in the past twenty years, this site is one of the best I have been to.

The location is second to none, so peaceful, no road noise, the only noises are from fellow humans using the site and wild life.

The facilities leave Caravan Club sites way behind, the owners are very friendly.

The toilet/shower block is always clean and the shower cubicles are huge!

I can't wait to return in the spring/summer to be able to enjoy the private lakes, one of which is for swimming and small boats the other for fishing.

We have just spent 18 nights in total at this wonderful gem of a site and location. We have stayed here several times in past years often with my sister in law like us in their Eriba Caravan. I can honestly say this is the best site in all the years we have been camping and caravanning we have ever stayed on. George, Katie, Will and family (the owners) are lovely people. The site is perfect not to big in terms of pitches (although there are plenty) but big in space to wonder, walk dogs, explore, hike off up the surrounding hills and woods all from the site, there are two lakes, The new amenity block is state of the art and blends in perfectly. Such a good design. We shall return again and again even though we live on the Isle Of Wight and have to catch an expensive ferry plus 4-5 hour drive. It's our heavenly retreat in Wales.
