Here as I type, this is our last Day, The site is what you would expect from a seaside resort site, its Friendly, Clean and well situated for the beaches at porthcawl. The toilet / shower blocks are clean, very adequate, but could do with a bit of Tlc here and there, weve had far worse on other sites, Lovely hot water, could possibly do with a shelf in the shower cubicle in the gents to put washing stuff on, and maybe another coat hook. The actual site it self has quite a few seasonal caravans, and sadly those people ant looking after the ground around their units, If I was the owner of the site, I would be telling a few caravan owners to tidy their pitches up, or I would do it, and charge them. My only downfall on this site is, we are pitched under 3 over head power lines, and when the rain stops, they drip and make a hek of a racket on the roof of our caavan, kept us awake the first night. So when we return (yes we will be coming back) I will ask to be placed away from the cables if possible. Ive read on other review sites about this site being a 'cram em in site' ok it gets full, but obviously the owners are governed by Planning permission and fire Regs, and if hes within those regs and rules, then why not fill it up. There's plenty of room for everyone, pitches are of a reasonable size so no problem as far as we are concerned. Other people have complained about noisy people, its a seaside caravan park that has kids on it for goodness sake, we have had no complaints about late night noise at all, and even it there was late night noise, it Comes from Inconsiderate fellow Campers, nothing to do with the owner or the sites possion, some Campers really do need to learn a bit of manners towards others. We would recommend this a s a Family, friendly, seaside site, we will Definately be returning, and hope the weather is a tad better than it has been :-) Oh one more thing, Hopfully the owners are reading this >>>> please consider placing a Speed limit on the site and posting signs for people to see, weve witnessed a few cars driving as if they are not on a camp site, but on a main road, Again people, this unacceptable driving comes from fellow Campers, SLOW DOWN, THERES KIDS ABOUT.
Cannot recommend this site highly enough. Family run business any problems day or night always someone on hand to help. No problem to big or small. Brought 3 people with me who have varying disabilities and I was helped no end. Site was clean and tidy. Shower and toilet blocks were immaculate (no mess left anywhere). Will most definitely be back again and again. 10 out of 10
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.
