We found this to be a beautifully located site within easy driving distance of Abergavenny, and with plenty to see around and about. Watch for the right turn on to the road leading to the site! There are walks directly from the site, and a great pub just a short walk away. It is sloping and terraced although our pitch at the top was not too bad, not needing extra levelling. It was a bit awkward to get on to for amateur reversers like us! As others have commented, the facilities are a bit dated, but clean and more than adequate. The tent pitches look lovely and in a pretty spot at the bottom of the site. We didn't need to use the shop but it's handy to have it there. We enjoyed our stay, but the slope of the site would put us off visiting again. The owners are not on site and perhaps that's why the barrier is locked at night.

Stayed Here For 3 nights 3rd - 6th August. For a Family trip out. 7 adults 2 Grand kids.

Facilities Ladies was Great so I was told.

Gents a little dated But works and very clean.

Staff. Fantastic.

Shop had Everything for the Basics.

Phone Signal. Dodgy at best & the wifi was on and off. But I'm away camping don't really need them.

Would go back a great site for touring the Area. 10/10

Very fine, site, at the slope of a hill. Fast wifi, and we enjoyed the friendly owners. There is a new toilet building for women and a little shop on the site. You can make fine walks leaving directly from the campsite. Crickhowel is a lovely village nearby, good for shopping.

The true test of any campsite is when its really busy. We went to Cwmdu for late spring bank holiday weekend so were able to put it to the test, which it passed with flying colours. It was fully booked, although a few people didn't turn up, presumably because the weather forecast didn't live up to its early promise.

This is a lovely little site which has a really nice feel. There have been some changes and improvements since we last visited a few years ago. There is a new ladies shower and toilet block with four cubicles of each. I'm not an early riser so probably not the best judge of whether this was sufficient, but never had to queue. Showers are warm and free with good sized cubicles and kept clean.

The bottom field which used to be completely open, now has marked pitches and some EHU which makes it more useable but without losing any of its charm. If you can get a pitch either near the top of the site or in the bottom field there are some stunning views down the valley.

Most of the pitches are of a generous size so it never felt cramped. I think the wardens take some care with placing people so try to avoid putting two huge tents next to each other for example. Although the site is sloping, many of the pitches have been levelled.

Its a great location for walking and an easy drive into the lovely small town of Crickhowell, but well placed for visits in all directions. We drove up to Hay as the literary festival was on and within easy reach.

There is a village pub within 10 mins walk. Its currently up for sale so I hope future reviewers will report on progress. Possibly as a result, our visit was a bit disappointing. Only one real ale available and very mediocre food which is a shame as it could be a lovely little country pub.

My only negative point about this site is that the shop/office is only open for a couple of hours each day (9-10 and 6-7) which is a nuisance if you have a problem (like the ladies hairdryer taking my money but not working!) as there is no-one to ask for help. However that's not enough to put us off and we will definitely be back.

Visited the site over the August Bank holiday, so was busy and with only four showers and toilets, didn't think this was adequate. Having said that the site is surrounded by lovely countryside and you can walk to the canal and into Crickhowell, takes about ten minutes. The Bridge End pub has a lovely beer garden overlooking the river, food excellent but a little pricey for pub food. Within 30 mins drive to Brecon and the four waterfalls walk, which is a must do.

We have just spent a week at Cwmdu and had a wonderful time. This was probably helped by the good weather on all but one morning :)

The campsite is on the side of a valley and therefore slopes, there are a couple of flat areas but we opted for slope as it was in the sun and I would rather have the evening sun to sit in than a flatter ptich. The slope wasn't too bad, yes we slipped down our beds a bit but it didn't really affect sleeping (the rooks and owls did that)

The site is fairly quiet although there are a few lorries on the bottom road but the noisiest thing at night is the wildlife and as we go camping for this then it does not bother me, well unless it is in our tent!

The facilities are old but kept spotlessly clean and I did not have to wait for a shower at all. In the gents my son gave up one night and showered the next morning instead. But on the whole the facilities are fine for the size of site.

We stayed Monday - Monday and it was so quiet until Friday then the site busied up for the weekend and was a little noiser but still pretty quiet.

The Wifi was excellent until Friday then could not cope. By Sunday morning it was fine again. We were surprised that in August it was so quiet during the week but it suited us fine.

We had electric which worked well.

We did not manage to do all of the things on our list so will be visiting the area again and we will stay at this site as it provided everything we wanted at a reasonable price.
