Reviewer: Anitahall45 1 review from this member

We spent two nights in our tent w/o ehu. The site was flat and had a lovely play area for the children in the middle (which was suffering from excess litter but was cleaned up the following day). It was busy and the tents were packed in too close for my liking. The toilet block was clean but small (two toilets) and there was no loo roll one day. The shower block which was a couple of minutes walk away was basic. There was no hand blowers so had to use the ones in the toilet block to dry our hair. The washing up room was tiny with one sink and no drainer. Have to say all the people on the site were from the local area. Although very friendly it was a very noisy site. Music, drinking and partying into the early hours. Half the site is for static caravan owners. Not our kind of place but well positioned off a main road and down a track.

Phoned this site a week or so in advance to see if they were able to fit me in and was please when they say that it would be no problem.

Very pleased with the manor in which they speak and deal with people as they are very polite, considerate and helpful.

However due to bad weather conditions my stay was cut short and they happily refunded the money for the remaining nights that I was meant to be staying.

Price was good at 10 per night and 2 per extra person in the same tent.

I would strongly recommend this site to anyone wanting to stay in this area.

Chose porthcawl to take my 10 year old nephew away for a break for a weekend in August.

Telephoned 10 days before to be told no electric hook up was available. Thought I`d give it a try.

My mistake was forgot to ask how much a pitch was with out electric. Shocked to find it was 20 per night after we had set up and asked to pay. Was expecting about 12.

There seems to be quite a few seasonal pitches in the field with a friendly community.

Ideal campsite for children who can easily make friends. Good play area and plenty of space for football etc.

There is a golf club house 5 minutes walk away for good meals and the Esso garage shop has good stock for essentials snacks/newspapers etc.

Indian restaurant next door to the garage.

It rained for a few hours overnight and sunday morning and the field soon became very wet with quite a bit of mud and surface water. Glad I wasn`t in a tent.

Got to be honest this will be my once and only visit.

Just come back from spending 4 nights at the camp site with my husband and children age 13, 10, 9 and 7, staying in a tent.

The site is clean, tidy and well maintained. The owners were lovely and showed us to our pitch and could been seen in the camp keeping an eye out and cleaning.

There is a large play area in the middle of the tent/tourer field that the kids loved playing in, where we pitched our tent next to.

There is no shop or club on the site, although there is a local garage 2 minutes away to get anything you may need. The town of Porthcawl is less than 5 minutes away in the car, with shops, pubs, loads of ice cream stalls etc, along with the beach and pleasure park.

The site is great if you want a quiet, relaxing time away. It was lovely and safe for the kids to play in and we would happily go again, the kids want to go again soon!

We stopped here for 3 nights nice site, the park was lovely for the kids. Toilet block and showers could be updated although they were quite clean. The owner was friendly upon arrival but did not see him again throughout our stay. Thought the price was a little expensive as we did not have any electric.

Porthcawl beaches not far to drive to in the car and will say you must visit beales fish & chip shop for the best fish & chips in wales and england very fresh.

Stayed at Dan y Graig for one night which was a Friday night. This was the second time I have stayed here. The couple that own the site are lovely and offer a great welcome. They will explain where everything is when you get there but basically there are two fields. The camping area is the largest and also facilitates trailer tents and touring caravans.

This field is very flat, and as the weather was dryish during my stay the ground was firm with no mud. However as the field is used so much, I can see how it could get muddy during prolonged rain. There was a short shower during the night but when I awoke the ground was pretty dry with no mud.

There is a playground in the middle of the touring field. The standard of the equipment is excellent and the kids seemed to be having great fun. They do tend to play until around midnight though, so if you want an early night camp further up the field.

There are toilets situated at the corner of the touring field which are of a good standard, and showers and wash facilities are in the middle of the static field. They are not as far as other reviews here state. Its only about a 2 - 3 minute walk from the touring area, as the whole site is quite compact. The showers are very good and nice and warm.

The only slight negative I can give them is that there are only two sinks for having a wash in the mens and there is no shelf anywhere to put wash bag, towel, hair gel etc etc. These sinks also have to be used to toilet goers. However this is only a slight moan and will not stop me visiting the site many many more times in the future.

As for the location, its 5 minutes from the M4 junction and about 7 minutes from Porthcawl and Rest Bay. Very very eary to find as it is signposted 'camping' from the road near the petrol station. The petrol station has a large shop with all the essentials you could need.

Overall very good.
