We stayed at this site over a very busy Bank Holiday with our 15 year old and his friend. It is situated in the beautiful Dee Valley with views of wooded mountains and the picturesque heritage Llangollen

steam railway right next door. The site has one field with electric hook ups and fairly basic toilets and showers, waste and water. Two other overflow fields (one across a minor road) were full too, there is no doubt that the facilities were creaking at this very busy time but everyone seemed happy and many campers were frequent visitors. The site is well kept, it had a nice friendly and family centred vibe.

There was no excess noise, apart from the steam trains during the day.

The owners are a charming and very hard working young couple who were very helpful. The surroundings are beautiful and the river where you can have access to swim or canoe is a short walk away. We ate at the local pub The Grouse and it was a great meal, good value and delicious. The steam train to Llangollen was a great trip and the little town has good shops, some nice cafes and a lovely walk by the river or canal. Other places to visit include Pontcysyllte viaduct a World Heritage Site and stunning, Bala, Conwy, Betws y Coed, and loads of great local walks.

We really enjoyed the area, plenty of things to do and see and the views are stunning.

We nearly stopped here but were put off by the write ups about lack of washing/toilet facilities. But while in the area, we stopped by to have a look.

Location wise is ace, a short walk from a good pub, and next to the railway station, with great country views all round.

We wont be booking here though as when we drove onto the site, we noted that the main camping field had portaloos in it, the blue tardis style ones. Smelly chemical toilets - not good.

If you don't mind smelly loos, then this would be a great location for camping, flat pitches, electric hook up and a nearby pub, with good sized towns a steam-train ride away.

WE stayed here with members of our Car Owners Club, we were booked into the field over the [quiet] road from the main site, but the grass was cut short, the field was level and the toilet facities [in a portacabin] were reasonable, if a little basic, and it was'nt too far just to walk over the road to the site facilities, which are excellent [good hot showers [free too] and good clean toilets].

The site is bordered on one side by the Llangollen Steam Railway and the River Dee[?] on the other side. The village of Carrog is just over a very pictuesque bridge and looked nice, but we didn't really get time to look around it as we were too busy doing other things.

When we booked in [at the last minute] we were told there was no EHU pitches left, we were prepared to accept this [and use our 12v system]. But one of the campsite staff heard about us, and helped us out by plugging us into the electric supply for the toilet portacabin [now that's what I call real 'customer care']

Whilst there, we visited 'The Great Orme', we took a drive up the Llanberis Pass [we would have liked to have gone up Mt Snowdon, but unfortunately, the Snowdon Railway does not allow dogs on their trains]. We had a day on the Llangollen Railway and an afternoon in Betys-Y-Coed.

Would we go back?. Most definitely, and if our 'Car Owners Club' don't book it again next year, we will be going on our own anyway.

This is a great campsite. Next to the site is the Llangolen Steam Railway, 300yds away is a river the kids can play in and the pub. The menu looked fantastic. Local shops in Corwen are a 10 minute drive away. And the prices were reasonable, 15 per night for 2 of us, our daughter and dog. The facilities were always kept clean. Would definitely recommend this site to anyone.

Very easy drive for us, nice wide road just off the A5. Arrived on 28th December on a very frosty day. Unfortunately most of the facilities were frozen, so just 2 toilets, a shower and one water tap in working order (on the main site) - which was a little challenging as we were pitched in the opposite field over the road. Facilities are very basic and could do with updating, but reflective in the price I suppose and it didn't spoil our stay! The owner Michael is a lovely guy and very helpful. The site is flat and pitch sizes ample. It is situated right next to Carrog Station, which is now fully restored and very picturesque. The steam train journeys are very nostalgic and are currently operating into Llangollen (7 miles away). Further work on the line will soon open the line further into Corwen. There are some lovely walks from the site too, with stunning views. Corwen is about 3 miles away for the not so energetic and you can start this walk at the bridge by the pub. The all important pub, (Grouse Inn) is just a five minute walk from the site and I can personally recommend the salted caramel waffles and ice cream. It is reasonably priced and has a nice terrace to take in the views. Stayed 5 nights and had a lovely time, all the locals are really friendly.

This is the first time at this site. Pitched on the hard standing field near the toilet block, which is inside a barn.

4 toilets and 4 showers. Adequate when we were on site. Cleaned daily. Chicken roam around freely. Farm atmoshere. The Grouse pub is out of the gate turn left 500 yrds over bridge. 1st bulding on right. Good selection of beer / meals. Free WI-FI.

There is another field opposite if you want quite suroundings.

Only 1 yellow street light. So good night stars.

(19 a night 2 adults + 1 dog )Shops in Cowen 1. 5 miles away

Site easy to find. Very good owners. Do anything for you.

Would return for sure.
