We booked initially for the first May bank holiday weekend, but due to work commitments had to rearrange our booking to the second May bank holiday weekend. We were able to transfer our deposit from one week to another, which in my book is brilliant customer service!

We knew we wouldn't make it to the campsite before 5pm so were told that our pitch information would be left on the notice board at the reception.

We arrived around 10pm and due to the poor light, arrived at the wrong campsite. We turned left into an adjoining campsite, rather than carrying straight onto Llangorse Lake campsite. The following morning we received a telephone call asking if everything was ok as we had not turned up. It then became clear that we were not at the correct campsite, so packed everything up and moved.

When arriving at the correct campsite, we were met by two very friendly ladies who gave us a choice of pitch. We were delighted when we found the camping field as it was much nicer than the campsite next door!

The toilet blocks were clean and very spacious as were the shower blocks. There were 3 sinks for washing up, which were very busy at obvious times, but there were washing up bowls and liquid provided for those who needed it.

There was plenty of drinking water points which were clearly labelled.

We took our dog with us and they (like many other sites we've visited before) request that dogs are kept on leads on the site, and it was nice to see that everyone adhered to this. A short walk from the campsite was Llangorse common where dogs were free to run off lead (under control). The horses are put on the common over night which wasn't a problem for us, as our dog is fine with them.

There was a cafe and bar on site, which we didn't use, but the bar had lots of entertainment going on. It's a shame that it isn't dog friendly as we may have used it.

The small shop at reception was brilliant for all your essentials; bread, milk, cheese, ice cream etc and was open every day. They even re-froze our freezer packs for us at no cost!

We took a trip on a rowing boat, while friends sailed and it was great that we could take our dog on the boat with us. We provided our own boyancy aid for him so wasn't sure they'd have any for dogs otherwise.

There are various walks you can do around the lake and we arrived in the village where there are two pubs, neither of which we could use as they weren't dog friendly. Which was really disappointing!

In summary, we had a lovely bank holiday weekend away and couldn't find any fault, other than the signage to the campsite being a little clearer to ensure that people arrived at the correct site.

Very disappointed, we had booked for 2 nights but left after 1 night for the following reasons and went elsewhere and wasted a nights payment. The location very good the lake being lovely. Found staff to be disinterested when checking in. Pitches for tourers isolated. Commercial vans arriving after reception closed and parking up and wandering around site. Thankful we had a dog. Toilet facilities not really up to scratch. One set of toilets were very clean the others were porta cabins which were not nice. Showers were clean in one section and not good in the other. You also had to pay. Think when you pay for facilities you should not have to pay to have a shower. On the upside a good shop on site a cafe in the day time and a pub at weekend but would not return.

Surrounded by the beautiful hills of the Brecon countryside, and sited within a short walk to Llangorse lake, this site has everything for most campers who are passing through or even a long stay.

There is a playground for the children and the clubhouse gets quite busy on weekends, there is also a shop which sells a variety of foodstuffs and camping equipment and a cafe which sells meals at a reasonable price.

Also Brecon town is about a 15min car journey for some attractions and big supermarket shopping.

Toilet and shower facilities are adequate at 20p a shower and dish washing is provided with hot water.

What makes this site especially attractive for me as this is not the first time I have stayed there is the friendliness of the staff, they will try to accommodate you if you have concerns, I plan to visit this site again with my family as we are avid campers and it has been delightful staying there.

Intended to stay for 3 nights with my dog and go walking, using the site as base. Thankfully I only paid for one night, that was enough. The showers and toilets were a port-a-cabin that wasn't very clean and were certainly cramped. We were along way from the shop and bar. The bar wont accept dogs, and the beer was flat and warm. I was lectured about my dog and sorry, I know how to look after him. The site was like a council estate on wheels. Never again.

This could be a lovely site it's in a great location near to a super lake.

The toilet and shower blocks need to much better than what they have there I actually thought the toilet block was the tool shed, and they charge for the showers. The pitches need to be tidied up simple things like neaten the edges of the grass, and the gravel looked as though they just thrown it in places.

It did have a good shop and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

An average large site in a good location.

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.
