Site is located on the canal with access to it through a coded gate. An OK site and I'm sure very nice in the height of summer with some hot weather.

The pub across the road is nice enough and food is good and not too expensive.

The site has two shower blocks, the one furthest away from the enterance needs some refurb I would say especially if you get charged an extra 50p for the 2 minutes of hot water ( a bit mean I thought on top of the £20 per night).

The laminating machine has found it way here with a myriad of 'do not do this ' ' do not do that' signs erected all over the place. I suppose if your bored here you could play 'hunt the sign'.

Also felt a bit out of place without a dog so it must be a good site for owners.

What a charming site and beautiful location with the canal right outside the site with a lovely walk along the towpath to a charming pub which served food. There was also a pub across the road also a garage. The site also had a small shop selling vital necessities for your food cupboard. The owners Trevor and Denise were very welcoming and helpful. I sh all certainly be returning to this pleasant site.

We stayed at this site with our two dogs in early August. The owners were lovely and as we were going to a wedding straight from our stay they very kindly stored our suit carriers for us. The site is quiet and the toilets and showers although in 'sheds' were always clean. The pitches have power and TV connection and there is cables avalable to buy from the owners shop. Showers were 50p and you need a 50p piece (no change). We walked both ways along the canal through a gate straight off the site, firstly to Whitchurch (small town with a nice mix of shops) which took about 45 minutes. There is a choice of pubs to eat and drink in, we found 'The old town hall vaults' friendly with good food. Also the 'White Bear' had music on. The other way along the canal was 'Willey Moor' with beer garden. There is also 'The horse and jockey' just over the road from the site which served food daily. We had mixed weather but met some lovely people on the site who gave us the info for places to go and eat. We visited Colemere and spent an hour walking the Mere and also Ellesmere for a walk.

We stayed for four nights, a lovely family run site. The staff were very helpful and took time to find us a electric hook up lead at no charge. We will stay again at this lovely site.

The site is dog friendly which is very important having a Labrador, there is loo pen and a big top field to exercise your dog in. There are walks along the canal in both directions with one taking you to the town of Whitchurch where you can purchase just about anything. There is a pub on the doorstep with good food and beers. All round pleasant site.

Wonderfull and quite quiet camp site run by a lovely friendly man. It is on the side of the Llangollen canal where you can feed the ducks and by the Grindly Brook staircase locks, where you can watch the barges come and go through the numerous locks. There is one men's and one ladies toilet with a shared shower that are kept very clean. Fresh water tap and elsan point with rinsing tap. Electric hook up is available at a small charge. Dogs are allowed if kept on a lead which is probably the one and only must be obeyed rule. There is a further field which is used for caravan rally's but can be used as an overflow if site is full, providing there is no rally on. Over the bridge on the other side of the canal is a lovely shop / cafe where you can eat in or take away delicious food. A little further is th Horse and Jocky pub where you can also get a nice meal. Across the road from the pub is a larger shop and a garage. Not an expensive site and really good value.

This site in located by the side of the canal and has direct assess by a gate, you have to put in a code in order to re-enter. The canal is delightful with the barges travelling up and down. The locks of Grindley Brook are within a few minutes walk, also the Lockside Café. There is a pub across the road and also one half an hours cycle ride along the towpath if you turn left from the site. Whitchurch is approx. 1 and a half miles along the towpath, a lovely cycle ride. The site itself is set out in two fields, the further one having seasonal pitches and afew touring pitches, where we were pitched. You have no choice and are escorted to your pitch on arrival. There is a facilities block in this area, which has a radio on constantly, which we could hear from your pitch. The recycling bins are also sited by the block, the banging of the bottles in the glass bin goes on until nearly midnight. There was no soap in the toilets. The showers are 50p which have the slots outside the shower cubicles. You have 4 minutes of water before it switches off. There are a lot of rules and regulations, which are fair enough when adhered to, but the 5mph is not, cars come speeding in through the entrance of this field. One rule, which is really common sense to most, of the electricity cables being unravelled for fire safety, there were a few plugged into the mains but still wrapped on the cable reels. There was constant traffic noise from the road outside the site. This was not a site we would return to, a shame as the canal location is lovely.
