Stayed here for two nights at the very end of their season. Decent site within 25 mins walking from porthcawl. Toilets and showers a bit tired and need updating but fairly clean although I know the loos and floors were not cleaned during our stay. What is it about loo cleaning on sites in this area.

My main problem now is that it is now almost 11 pm and I would like to go to bed but I am going to have to go outside and ask the caravan behind us to keep the noise down!

The couple arrived earlier this evening and have been sitting outside all evening - not a problem when we are sitting watching tv but now it's late and they are really intrusive!

Why oh why don't people have some courtesy on sites?

Just spent 4 days at this site. Lovely site, owners really friendly and helpful. Good enclosed children's play area suitable for younger children, but not really anywhere for older kids like mine to kick a ball without it hitting other caravans/tents. Shop very well stocked and reasonably priced, especially the icecreams! Toilets and showers fine, and lots of water taps/wastebin areas around. Washup room is fine too, with separate sink for hand-washing laundry if req'd. Site about 3 mins drive from beach. Rest Bay is FAB for bodyboarding/surfing - constantly manned with lifeguards, there are several surfing schools on this beach, and parking is 2. 80 for all day until 9pm. Town has nice little selection of all shops you could need, but Bridgend has bigger names, larger supermarkets, and the Designer Outlet Village (j. 36 off m/way) is great, and shops there open til 8pm - lots of good restaurants in their food hall.

Lovely site. Toilets/showers may look run down from the outside but are clean and reasonably modern on the inside. Plenty of very hot water and a very good and powerful, free hairdryer. There is a well stocked on site shop. There are three pubs about half a mile away. The Rose and Crown is not dog-friendly, The Swan does not provide evening meals during the week and The Farmers Arms is dog friendly and provides excellent (very large), reasonably priced meals.

My only criticism is the lack of hard-standings on the site.

Don't worry too much about the arched bridge on the road before you get to the site. It may say max. height of 9' 6' but it is much higher than that. Maybe if you were in a tall, wide box shaped vehicle there may be a problem because of the arch. Our 9' 10' motor home got under the bridge very easily.

Had a very nice 2 night stay at this site, were down for cricket at Cardiff but site we normally use was full, so had to look further afield, could not have done better. We were met by Mike and Dianne on arrival and made very welcome. Not too many on site 1st night so able to pitch up near to shower and toilet block, both of which are spotless and water pressure was good.

Will certainly stay there again if in the area.

Just returned from a 5 day break at Brodawel.

We paid 17 for a family of 4 per night.

We found the owners to be very friendly and helpful. There is a good atmosphere on site and people were friendly.

We were shown all the facilities and shown to our pitch.

The facilities were very clean although a bit dated. There was plenty of free hot water and there were no queues for the showers. Liked the recycling areas.

The girls enjoyed the play area, especially the sand pit and tower. This was enclosed.

We didn't use the shop except for ice cream and doing our freezer packs (free - thanks) but it did look well stocked.

There is an information desk at the back of the shop which was useful and the owners gave us directions to the beaches. Pink beach highly recommended as quieter than rest bay and great with the girls.

We also walked to the village and had a very good meal in the Farmers pub.

All in all we had great time and have already recommended this site to friends. Intend to return for a weekend in September

After reading some of the reviews we were a bit dubious but decided to go anyway at the last minute. We're glad we did.

The site itself was very clean and well kept. The toilets, although a little dated, were clean and water very hot. Plenty of showers (which were free to use), 1 in each of ladies/mens toilet block and then about 6 in another block.

We didn't use the shop but it looked as if it was adequately stocked for necessities.

The village was a pleasant 10 minute walk away where there were 3 pubs. We had a fantastic meal in the 'Rose and Crown' which served food until about 9. 30.

The play area at the site looked quite good where plenty of children seemed to be enjoying themselves (I think the people moaning obviously expect something similar to Alton Towers!)

The owners/wardens were very friendly and welcoming. We would definitely go back.
