Returned to this lovely site after many years pleased to say it has still remained the same unspoilt site. Owners are very helpful, site easy access from the main rd. Short drive to train stations bus passes site regularly. Only downside is the traffic noise but didn't bother us will be recommending to our family.

Stayed here for 5 nights, very peaceful and pleasant. The toilets are immaculate and cleaned regularly. Cleanest toilets we have seen at a campsite. The owners friendly and actively busy with maintenance and lawn cutting etc, but did not interfere with the campers.

Good little fishing pond, caught stacks of carp on corn. There is no shop at the park, but shops nearby in the local towns.

Well priced, will definitely stay here again if we are in the area and would recommend it to anyone.

We have just spent a week camping at Morben Isaf and have had wonderful time. We are a family of 4. 2 adults and 2 children aged 6 and 4. We also took our two dogs, Labrador & collie.

We arrived on Saturday morning and were greeted by the site managers and directed to the camping field.

First impressions:- very clean and tidy. Very friendly. Lovely location. Flat field. Plenty of space.

We pitched and set up camp whilst the children played in the field. One of the good things about camping here is that they only allow a few tents on the site so as not to overload the capacity on the toilets / showers which is very considerate and sensible.

The site is mainly statics but these are so well set out you do not feel like you are part of such a big site. There is a touring area too which have hook-up. Only tourers and campers have use of the toilet block as the statics have their own facilities. We never had to wait to use the showers or toilets. There is a separate washing up room and chemical disposal point if you need it!

The camping field is about 2 mins walk from the toilet / shower block. At first I was a bit bothered about this but it did not prove to be a problem at all, even with 2 young children. If there has been a lot of consistent rain the camping field would be rather boggy. It was quite wet when we were setting up but soon dried out.

The toilet block has won awards for 'best loo' and they really are top-class. Hot water, showers and hair driers are all FREE.

At one point in the break we had to use the laundry and this too was immaculate and very good value (1 for a load).

There is a fridge/freezer facility to store cold goods. This is not openly accessible as it is in the workshop but I know the owners were thinking about relocating it to make it easier to get to.

The site is situated on a main road but this was not a problem.

There is a lake on site and a short nature walk. Adjacent to the camping field (with free 24hr access) is the Dyfi Osprey Project. This was an amazing place and to be able to wander over to do a bit of bit of birdwatching was great. The Project is child friendly and the kids loved going across to try and spot the Osprey.

We mainly travelled to Borth and Ynyslas Beaches as we like to go Power kiting. We visited Aberystwyth and Aberdovey which were both nice.

The site charges are very reasonable and excellent value.

There is no specific play area for children but there is still plenty to do. There are a set of goal posts on the camping field available for use. The lake has a safe path round it, which was teeming with tadpoles!

The only other thing needed to mention would be the midges! On our first evening there hubby was ready to pack up and come home! We asked if we could have a fire and the owners gave us permission, within sensible guidelines! The midges were not so much of a problem once we got the fire going each night.

We would certainly recommend the site and will be going there again. It has been a wonderful holiday.

We visited this site for the afternoon as family were staying on here, yes this site is fabulous, clean, tidy, well maintained in all aspects as the previous reviews have said.

Just one thing that needs to be mentioned, if you have children then this site is not really for you. As we found out to our cost, we let our son play with his cousins and were told in no uncertain terms to keep strict supervision on them at all times, he is 11yrs old and does not want a grown up shadowing every move made. So after the dressing down we decided to cut short our visit to see the family.

This site is perfect if you don't have children, or children who want to play by themselves.

We stayed here for 4 nights in August, we found it a very quiet well kept site. The shower and toilet facilities were especially good and always immaculate whatever time of day.

Machynlleth is a 5 min drive away and has plenty of shops Aberdovey is a 20 min drive and has a great beach especially for young children.

The site was very quiet maybe too quiet for some, in fact we were the only tent on the camping field for 2 nights.

The camping field (separate field for those tents not needing hook ups) is flat, well kept and well sheltered, our only criticisms would be of the road noise which could bother some people and the mosquitoes which came out in large numbers.

It was our first camping holiday as a family, we had a lovely break here and will definitely be visiting again sometime next year.

Booked here because we couldn't get into the big camps down the coast and what luck it was to find such a perfect site with easy access, great toilet block seemed new and kept spotless, small level touring park away from statics surrounded by wildlife. We even brought a frog home gave us a shock when unpacking the awning to dry and it jumped out.

This site is a credit to the owners who keep it so tidy. Slight noise from traffic but only the heavy stuff. When we stayed the touring area was only half full and most of the caravans were unoccupied we rarely saw anyone for the five days. The only downside to the site is the travelling distance to town, sea, pubs and shops not a site for children unless they are into nature study which is plentiful

We will most definitely return.
