£15 per night + £3 for electric hook up and £5 per stay for Wifi this site is a Lovely relaxing site with a long tree lined drive up to it with free range roaming sheep to the drive. The site has a little shop for all your necessities and treats and the owners are very pleasant. We spent 2 nights here end of June 2013, their is only 1 small camping field as the rest of the site is mainly static caravans. Electric hookup and your own water tap for each plot. The camping field is next to the River Dee which is like a small running Brook or stream. It was lovely to wake up to the sound of running water and the dawn chorus. This is a site that is for people who want a quiet relaxing no frills break, not much for the family to do but we went for the relaxing break and the scenery, the scenery is amazing.
The only down side we could find was the pitching field itself. The field appears to be built on a gravel base underneath the initial turf which made it extremely difficult to get tent pegs in more than a couple of inches to be honest, we spent ages fishing each peg around to get it in the ground, which if the weathers nice wouldn't be too bad but if the weathers not so great and you want to get your tent up quickly in the wind and rain then this proves very off putting. Hence on the Sunday of us leaving we had to pack up our tent a lot earlier than planned as the very windy night had dislodged most of our tent pegs and our tent was collapsing in the wind. It usually takes us approx 30 mins to put our tent up but due to the gravel type base it took us well over an hour, But if the weathers nice and your prepared to persevere with the very poor ground base then this is a little gem of a relaxing site.
I have given this site 8/10 for ground base problems when pitching only all other aspects were very nice.
Booked this site last minute with my family, easy to find, but once on site there was no sign for reception and we ended up in a field at the bottom and had to turn around with a caravan! Which we found we were not the only people to do this! There are no children's facilities here but there is a stream that runs through that the kids enjoyed as you could catch fish. The toilet block leaved a lot to be desired, trickles of water from the showers, difficult to control the temperature. The staff were great. If your a dog lover this is the place for you, I unfortunately am not. The pitch was a good size. There are a lot of caravans that must stay there all year round, that are rather old, dirty and the grass is overgrown all around them, which makes it look untidy! I feel this camp site may have its priorities wrong! This campsite has the potential to be a gold mine, it's set in the most beautiful location, but just doesn't hit the spot
Nice friendly welcome when we arrived, escorted to our pitch by lovely man, wow what a pitch right next to beautiful shallow stream approx 10ft wide, fresh water available next to pitch, the site is beautiful with lovely views, showers blocks are fine, yes I've had better but these were great, plenty hot water, clean, and always available never a q even in the half term break which to me is peak time, Bala with its Great Lake, steam train, pubs, fresh bakery, sailing, take always, and so much more only 8 miles away. This to me was a gem of a site, with small children it felt very safe and they were kept busy with the large open areas to play, I have read other reviews but would say when camping you are out in the country and you need to remember this, I loved this place with the wonderful sound of the water passing by.
Don't normally comment on the www unless something or someone is exceptional good or bad. I stayed at Hendwr in Sept 2012 In a tent with my dog Saxon. It ticked all the boxes. The site has beautiful views and is at one with nature. Just imagine sitting in your tent with a view of the hills listening to a chatty wood pigeon while the stream flows gently past, then later on listening to the owls. (Just one bit of advice if pitched in a tent near the stream be prepared for a couple of visits in the night to the fab loo's. )
The shower blocks are excellent. They have a heater in to warm the block up while you shower and the water soooo hot Yeh. Just perfect for the wet, damp summer we've had. Every where was clean and well kept. The previous person mentioning about the water tasting bad, I never found that at all nor did I smell anything in the toilet block. But fair do's if it was the week after it might have something to do with the rain. I also felt safe which is very important travelling on my own.
They have a good little shop with everything you would need plus a lot of information for places to visit the time open was a bit short but I'm sure if you needed anything they would come up for it. Saxon would like to Thankyou for all the attention he got and made so welcome which really meant a lot to me When you arrive you say hello to the camp staff but when you leave you say goodbye to friends. A must visit at least once for total escapism.
