Reviewer: Wobbly Rod 2 reviews from this member

Situated about 3 miles south of Aberaeron (10 mins from pitch to town, driving) First Impressions were good, greeted on the driveway by a young girl who stopped what she was doing to come and say hello and tell us where to check-in - at the sheep shed.

So off we potter to shed to be greeted with a smile and a warm welcome from a lady (owner?) she confirmed our details, spoke of our plans and gave some guidance of what to do in the area along with some directions and then walked us to our pitch with a hot tub / Jacuzzi. Meet 'n' greet 10/10

The pitch was as big as any I have seen anywhere with hard-standing, grass, elec hook-up and a water tap. We received directions on using the tub and were left to it with instruction that if we needed anything at all just ask. We elected to put our awning up on the hard-standing so used rock-pegs which are a must and we don't carry any other type. Pitch10/10

As previously mentioned, the site is currently undergoing building work and it is a on-going project. The toilets are therefore currently situated on the far site and are of the mobile type, a mobile divided into men and women's toilets and the same for the showers. Each of these were clean incidentally. (these were more than adequate for the 8 or 10 units that were on site but in busy times queuing would be inevitable. ) Many camping units have their own toilet facilities I know, but if you don't then it might mean a 100 - 150 meter walk to the toilet units, which ain't ideal at 2. 30 am in the horizontal rain. It's worth noting that there were no dishwashing facilities on site BUT we were offered the use of the cafes dish washer if needed. So due to the pokey nature, distance of the toilets along with no hot water in the hand basins I will give - 6/10

All-in-all we really enjoyed our break due to the hot tub and to be honest we'd return to the site in it's current condition before the new facilities go on line. Once the facilities are built though the place will be brilliant, I just hope there are no price hikes as this is at the limit of what I'd be willing to pay now, even with the Hot tubs.

Summary:

Location is a bit far out of town, will be a truly great site once the infrastructure is in place, it has lots of rough field space, to run your dog. The pitches are a very good size but no play area for children. The private hot tubs are a really good novelty feature and for a quiet relaxing break I recommend Bargoed Farm despite its current short-comings.

We stayed here just for the one night. We had originally booked 2 but cancelled one due to reading lots of bad reviews and thinking £80 was too much for just 2 nights stay. I have to say we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There is nothing really on the campsite other then the hot tubs for entertainment but it meant the campsite was nice and quiet, and the showers/ toilets were tiny outbuildings but they were well kept, warm and clean so felt comfortable using them. The hot tub was 40 degrees and amazing, so relaxing it had jet settings and different lighting. It kept us warm all night even when we went to bed because our bodies were lovely and warm. The only downside to this campsite is that there is no shop for snacks: drinks, no WiFi and no service on our phones so we couldn’t contact Home or look for nearby places to visit, and of course the tent had to be put on the gravel which was so difficult to get the pegs into (our mallet even broke!) then we ended up leaving some pegs behind as we couldn’t get them out of the ground and some we had bent so not great! Very quiet area, owners lovely, nice little break. However £80 is a stretch when there is nothing else apart from a hot tub to enjoy. Maybe £30 a night would be more reasonable? We’d come back if they sorted the WiFi and let us pitch on the grass and we’d happily pay the £40 a night price, look forward to hopefully returning in the future.

The site is new, as such it is a work in progress. The owners have big plans and there is some large construction going on for a new cafe and play area.

The site is easy to find off the main road to Aberaeron. A few nice beaches within an easy drive. The track leading up to and around the site is quite bumpy.

The pitches are an ok size, depending on the size of your outfit. The grass gets very wet after rain.

We welcomed the fact you could get meals, snacks and drinks on site but the old cow shed doesn't feel like the most hygenic of places to eat.

The hot tubs are a great novelty and we found it a relaxing addition.

We didn't go into the teepees but at first glance the material seems thin but they may be heated.

A nice site but overpriced for what it is right now.

We stayed here for 5 nights at £25 per night. Vastly overpriced considering it's not fully finished. The toilets and showers are porta cabins, which aren't cleaned regularly. The pitches are a decent size, which you can only put your awning on the handstanding which is solid as a rock, and struggled to get the pegs into the ground. There isn't a lakeside cafe or shop, as these are still under construction, well I say construction, they're still only doing the foundations!

There's a sheep shed that has a mobile catering unit in it, which sells hot food, but you have to wait depending on if they've got people to serve or gas available. It also has seating and a makeshift children's play area inside, with a few rabbits and guinea pigs to pet. There isn't any outdoor play area.

It is in a rural location but to get to the coast or harbour, you're looking at a minimum of a 10 minute drive, whereas we're avid walkers.

All in all, quite disappointed, as all that was advertised/promised as per Facebook hasn't come to fruition.

There's plenty of other sites located actually on the coast, so I'd give it a miss until it's up and running properly, but Lord knows when that'll be??

We stayed in a hot tub pitch for our first week absolutely stunning. The 2nd week we had an electric pitch. This is a lovely family run site. I would highly recommend it. We have booked again for October and December. Hot tub pitches.

We have just returned from this absolute gem of a site.

Firstly, I have to mention the lovely warm welcome we received, after a 7 hour drive it was lovely to be greeted like friends. The family are amazingly hard working and do everything they can to make your visit the best it can be.

Although the site isn't completely finished ( they are building a Lakeside cafe and shop) it is peaceful and beautiful and once the planting is established it will be stunning.

Each pitch is spacious and has a fence and Laurels planted at the boundary, which is lovely as it feels like you've almost got your own lawned garden area. Tents and caravans are pitched on the hard standing and every pitch is fully serviced with its own water and waste water drain, this was such a treat! No constant emptying and re-filling water containers!

Now for the main attraction- our own, private hot tub on our pitch . This was blissful, the views from ours were great, and even more so because we didn't have anyone on the pitch next to us.

Nearby are several beautiful beaches and pretty towns.

We didn't eat out at all though as we were just too content in our hot tub every evening, looking at the view.

Overall, a fantastic site that can only get even better.
