There was no one there to show us where to pitch-up, and no clear markings either. Waited ages for advice before setting-up.

The shower was OK. No toilet roll (nor even holder) in the loos. No warm water to wash hands after using the loo, nor soap, nor drying facility for hands.

The lady said it was basic (which we wanted), ie no frills, but it was actually not acceptable. In short, nothing like its description.

I stayed here last year and had already read the reviews regarding the state of the facilities ie Toilets etc. It turned out to be worse than I expected. Considering they have been promising to address this problem for a few years now it is a disgrace. Also tried to book up this August and they want 17. 50 per night and a minimum of 3 nights ! 52. 50 for 2 nights come on. This site should really be removed from this site as it is not doing UK Campsites any favours at all.

We visited this site for our first family camping trip. As newbees to camping, we were unsure what to expect. The toilets were very dirty, used materials on the floor, a lot of flies and smelt awful. It could do with a very good clean and/or refurb.

Location wise, it was great - close to the beach for the children. There were electric hook ups, but we weren't using these so unable to comment.

We didn't see the owner/warden throughout our stay. It wasn't clear where we should pitch our tent when we first arrived.

Only this morning when we took our tent down, did we realise that we had pitched on dog mess. There was a lot of this around the site, but this is obviously down to the other campers and not the site itself.

It is near to Porthcawl so a perfect area for visiting.

Its down a quiet lane so there is no noise.

We never saw the owners all weeknd.

The site itself is a small field with toilets and a shower.

The shower and toilets were dirty. They were neglected broken door etc. We stayed the one night though had booked for two. We left due to the state of the toilets and shower.

The pitches were not marked out. We had to move twice in order to find a hook up that worked.

I would not stay again which is a pity due to location however the toilets and showers let this site down greatly.

Nice quiet site mainly camper vans and caravans. \good price at 14 with electric hookup. Quiet site when we were there.

The only downfall which would stop me from returning was the toilet and shower block. It was very neglected and didn't seem to be cleaned regularly. I in fact could not bring myself to shower there.

Also several times felt like was wading through urine in the toilets. Apparently waiting for planning permission for a new block which would make it perfect.

Also there was nowhere to refreeze ice blocs as staying in a tent and not a caravan.

Did not see owners at all except on arrival to say hi but no discussions about site or facilities.

Reviewer: Dot P 255 reviews from this member

There is a real shortage of sites in this area and we rejected several of the big sites that didn't seem too inviting. This one was a small site down a short lane and its very much under developed.

The site is in the owners garden, plenty of space between pitches, ehu and water available. Toilets / showers need updating - yes they are still waiting for planning permission to update.

It was busy whilst we were there with another 7 units - but no real noise and the road is very quiet.

As a stop over would use it - not use would stay for too long if having to use the shower / toilets, then again a good clean would make them more than usable.
