This is our second stay at this site (we also stayed a weekend in December 2014). Lovely quiet site in a great location - next to the River Dee and right by the Llangollen steam railway. In fact, the campsite is right next door to Carrog station.

There are only a few toilets on site and a handful of showers but the block that they are sited in is very clean. Unheated though, so cold in the winter!

The owners were very friendly and helpful.

No on-site shop. Carrog is a very small village but does have a lovely pub that does good food and has a nice outside eating area.

Our only negative point was that the grey waste was very difficult to access to empty our motorhome direct into the grey waste drain.

A friendly campsite with well-looked after facilities housed in an old farm barn. Hot water on demand, and everything very clean and well-maintained.

The owners live in the farm house next door to the site, and are easily contactable by mobile phone if they're not in when you arrive.

There isn't any heating for the showers or toilets, although two toilets with wash basins are housed in an insulated 'shipping container' which do have gentle heating (but not recommended for use by children because of the door locks). Showers were warm enough in near-freezing outside temperatures, although the floor was a bit cold underfoot.

A shortish walk along a minor road takes you to the Grouse Inn on the other side of the river, where a warm welcome and good pub food awaits (including a good children's menu).

The location, off the A5, is very handy for touring, but the campsite is quiet. Plenty of space with electric hookups in mid-February. We will need to return to try out the steam railway in the summer!

What a fantastic site. The scenery is beautiful, the site is clean, tidy and well organised and as previous reviewers have mentioned, the food at the pub is out of this world. The shower facility looked a new addition and were very clean with plenty of free hot water. We only stayed one night, but will return when we are next in Wales

My family and I loved this site, as there is plenty of room, it's nice and level, quiet and the toilet and shower facilities were great. The toilets were always cleaned and stocked with loo paper, I noticed, and it's in a nice location. We would stay here again, although we'll avoid putting the postcode into the Sat nav as we ended up somewhere else! Probable best to go via Corwen as Carrog is only 3 miles up the road.

Great site in a beautiful place. The owner spends a great deal of time cleaning and clearing and the loos were usually clean and well stocked. Well designed and free showers (lots of hooks) including disabled access, and good enough loos. These are in a huge barn - not separated for men/women. The only small frustration was the lack of basins separate from the loos - so tooth brushing and shaving meant that loos were occupied. This was occasionally a problem on a busy weekend. Shame that the recent refurbishment did not include a few separate sinks as there is lots of room there.

Lovely location, amazing views and proximity to Carrog steam station. We took bikes along a back road - lovely path - and had a delightful time in Llangollen and surrounding Welsh countryside.

Good value, with hard standing and grass option as well as less 'organised' grass pitches, and wooden cabins. Wifi pretty good which was a real bonus.

Reviewer: Aimz 2 reviews from this member

This was our first visit to this site, chosen due to reviews and price and locality for going to 'Day out with Thomas' on the railway close by and at Llangollen.

On our arrival we found the office shut. But a telephone number provided and the young man running the site appeared as soon as he saw us waiting as he was cutting the grass on site. He was very helpful explaining where everything was and providing site rules, we wanted a pitch close to the toilets and he was happy to re-locate us. The toilet and shower facilities were always clean and tidy, and I regularly saw the owner around cleaning them and checking on the bins - they encourage recycling but most people didn't seem to bother so he was sorting the rubbish.

The washing up facilities were a cold water sink outside or one with hot water inside - this was helpful as the barn provided a safe place for children to run around whilst they waited for you (something I had issue with at a previous campsite)

Carrog station is literally across a fairly quiet road, and they are extending the line to go past the campsite, as it is a tourist line the trains stop at 5ish.

The campsite is quiet, and promotes itself as a family campsite, on the whole people abided by the 10pm curfew however the tent next to us did not and it wasn't enforced. But we enjoyed our stay and our son was able to run around safely on the site.

Following a previous review, we had no issues with keeping things dry in the showers, there are shower curtains, hooks and a bench in there. But if you are tall the showers are at a fixed height and you may have to bend.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and would come back again to stay in future
