As was mentioned this site is wrongly named Lakeside, when in fact 'Fieldside' would be far more appropriate. The lake is reached, but if camping it's 5-8 minutes walk and cannot be seen from the site.
Very friendly staff who provided a superb route & map on late arrival. The on-site clubhouse was quiet, but get the impression can be very busy at weekends - again very friendly staff. There is a small shop selling most things also.
Toilet blocks/showers were clean & ok, but quite basic.
One bad point that almost ruined my overnight stay was the nearby Red Lion pub in Llangorse village by the bridge, they flatly refused to serve food at 8. 30pm while I watched them for an hour bringing food out in front of me, they even refused to make up a sandwich or bowl of chips. Worth bearing in mind as the clubhouse only serves food on weekend nights.
Would return, but would give the village a miss & support the site instead.
Stayed 1night two families 6adults, 2 children, 2 infants. Really pleased with facilities really clean. Pitches were big and enough room for 3 tents. Kids had a fantastic time playing football until late. We unfortunately are like night owls and tend to stay up chatting til late. Some people were not pleased but they must have forgot they were on holidays relaxing having fun! Will definitely go to the campsite again. We were camping virgins, but now feel confident and will now be regular visitors to the lakeside. Thanks lakeside, see you soon!
This site is called Lakeside, but don't be fooled into thinking that you are actually camping on the banks of the lake, or that you can even see the lake from your tent! The lake is nearby, within an easy stroll, and is really lovely, especially in the sunshine, but you can't actually see it from your pitch.
This site is primarily a static caravan park, with a couple of small fields at the back for camping. It feels like the camping is an afterthought and in my opinion, the static caravan owners seem to think that the place is entirely theirs, and are prone to partying / chatting / watching TV very loudly until very late. However, this criticism can also be levelled at some of the campers too, especially those with electric hook ups, and there seemed to be little evidence of wardens to keep this kind of antisocial behaviour under control.
Pitches are marked out with numbers and you will be allocated specific pitches on arrival. These are generously sized and did not feel cramped. The field is fairly flat so no issues with hills. We actually has a very nice pitch next to a small river and with a nice outlook, but I think the site is let down by rather shabby facilities; porta-loo style toilets and showers which seemed to work only sporadically. Showers and hairdryer cost 20p, so you need to remember your bag of coins each time! Overall, the shower/toilet block needs a good and more regular clean (especially when rainy and muddy)and lick of paint.
Ball games are not allowed in the camping field, although everyone seemed to ignore this, and that was fine. There is a small kids playground on site, but surrounded by statics, so again, not ideal for ball games.
The main reason we chose this site was to sail our small dinghy and there is convenient access to the lake from the jetty. Friendly and helpful staff at reception and at the jetty, although a bit pricey to actually launch (£13 minimum per day for a dinghy). The lake is beautiful but a bit limited in what you can do; there is an island in the middle but you can't stop there, and you are not allowed to land the boat on any of the shore lines as they are either privately owned or part of nature reserves. So you can only land at the jetty, which is quite limiting. Also there is a lot of weed in the lake which gets tangled in the rudder/keel etc and also in the pedaloes (£8 per half hour). There is no swimming or snorkelling allowed in the lake either, so really very limited to watercraft, which we hadn't really realised.
The shop is reasonable and there is a canteen and bar/pub on site, although far enough away from the camp fields not to cause any disturbance.
Overall, I didn't feel this site was really what I wanted from camping so would probably not return, although a lot of people seemed very happy with it.
Wonderful campsite in the most beautiful of locations. Campsite overlooked by spectacular mountains and rolling hills. Large spacious pitches, well maintained grass and spotless facilities. Cafe, shop and pub on site, reasonable prices. The weekend we stayed there was an Irish themed night, with a bouncy castle outside in the grounds for the kids which they loved. Location was perfect to explore the beacons. Great website to check out facilities and location prior to holiday. Will definitely be back, hopefully very soon!
Lovely setting, beautiful lake and lots of activities available for young and old alike. Shower and toilet facilities were not great for the amount of pitches available. We were unfortunate enough to have some very bad weather and our pitch flooded, we were watching the ducks on our own lake right outside our awning ! There are a lot of static vans on site, we guessed they are owned and they had no respect for others and partied until 1 am both weekends we were there. The area itself is stunning though, do not be put off by our experience it was a friendly enough site and staff were friendly and as helpful as possible. No one can help the weather.
First time camping so nothing to compare to, but site was clean and tidy with all amenities within a few minutes walk. Pitches were large and well drained, staff were friendly and very helpful. Freezer blocks re frozen free of charge, shop also stocked a good selection of food.
Food on site was good however on the Saturday night it wasn't served until 9pm, £2. 20 for curry on the Sunday with free live music. Pint of Grolsch at £3. 20.
