Stayed at this site, beginning of June.

Access is easy, off A487 and about 800m along B4405 turn into wide entrance.

Beautiful scenery and at the base of Cader Idris.

There's no TV or phone signal here which suited us.

There is a male Toilet with separate shower and the same for female's but both in the same corridor. Very clean but tired. The showers were coin operated. Did not use it so can't say what it was like.

Can sometimes be noisy due to low flying planes, but only now and then, but I found them good entertainment.

There is a café and a restaurant nearby, but did not use them.

After asking the owner where we could site our caravan, she pointed out a short rough hard standing strip, which had what appeared to be a permanently sited tourer on the end, it should be moved along to make room (As this set the bench mark for every one else who wants elec, as there is only one post with 4 electric points. ) and with another tourer sited inward of that. Leaving what I assumed was room for us on the other end of the strip, (6 meter safety rule)

We parked on the very end. Two day later she's talking to someone in front of our caravan telling them ( loud enough for us too hear ) that our car was to far from our caravan which was taking up a space!

We had no awning up and the car was just a metre from our door. If we had been out for the day, I'am sure she would have shoe horned this campervan in.

Instead she told him to go on the grass next to ours to reach the electric. He reversed just 2/3 metres from our front side window, going to connect.

After pointing out the safety aspects of this he stretched his cable further, but only getting about another 2 metres away. As he was staying 1 night I compromised. This happened again with another campervan but they decided to do without electric rather than be so close.

How many times this might happen over a season I've know idea. I don't think she does it for monetary gain but rather helping people get what they want, regardless of safety.

It needs more electric points and spaces clearly marked.

On another down point, we could not find the chemical disposal point at first even though we were told it was in the garden. It was 'hidden' in bushes across unmown grass. The flat square cover only had one small recessed handle to lift it with, the other one had broke and not been repaired, no strap or raised bar to make lifting easier. I had to use a peg remover to lift it.

Once lifted the scene was one I can't repeat here.

Cold water tap for refilling your water was surrounded by nettles, as too the gateway to the house. There was a Belfast sink on the floor, whether this was for washing your plates I don't know. Some of the surrounding grass/ground for camping was marred by high marsh grass. Bring insect repellent as well as mosquito nets for use on the field.

Sorry to be so negative on some of the above points, but at £16 a night I expected better as customer.

I think as the lady is still getting the money in, she thinks were satisfied with the service.

We're not. Could be lots better with a bit more effort.

Like previous reviewers, we found this camp site in a wonderful location, however the site left a lot to be desired. It was expensive for what it was which really was a rough field with a bit of tarmac as hard standing. We stayed 3 nights as hoped to climb Cadir Idris and were waiting for the weather. Which meant we needed to empty the loo. The chemical toilet emptying site was so over grown with nettles & thistles it was difficult. Not much was done to warrant the fee. We were not asked for any membership cards although we are members. I usually like CS & CLs but this site knocks your confidence. But it is in the most perfect location!

Like other reviewers it has to be said that the location is good, being well positioned at the bottom of the steps to the top of Cadir Idris. However it somewhat goes downhill from here. There are 2 showers and 2 toilets but so tired and really superficially clean. Only cold water. Showers are 20p for 3 minutes. We did not use them.

The toilets had run out of paper when we arrived, when paper was in place it was about as cheap as you could get. Not pleasant.

In terms of the site, the ehu post had 4 sockets which meant users had to be close to each other. The field was described as flat but was actually really rough. The sheep in the field kept he edible grass down but this meant what goes in comes out so the field was really poor and had a reasonable amount of pooh.

And very expensive for what you got. I won't be returning.

Great position ideal for climbing Cader Idris, but very basic, poor toilets/showers no sink in the ladies, no toilet paper, boggy field, limited area to park motorhome, hard standing was quite soft, although to be fair it did rain for most of the summer, and there appeared to be units that had been there for a long time, very expensive for the facilities at £17 per night + shower inc hook up. We wont be going back as the area is full of sites with better facilities that cost less.

This is quite a basic campsite but what a location! At the foot of Cadair Idris, at the start of the Minfford path, with the cafe within a short walk (although beware, it isn't always open when it is supposed to be!) and the Gwesty Minfford Hotel less than 10 minutes away, a great place to have an evening meal (or any other meal as they are open for food all day). The owner is helpful and friendly and runs the Heritage Centre next door.

The facilities consist of one outdoor cold tap, 2 toilets and 2 showers (20p for 3 minutes): surprisingly, the only toilet with a sink and mirror is designated the men's! Best not to expect toilet paper or soap. If you accept all this (reflected in the price), this is a great family campsite. The owner is quite tough with late-night revellers. There is a stream running by the campsite which my boys love to play in. Be aware that the RAF regularly practice low flying over the valley. Fighters only seem to come by during the day but a large cargo plane (Hercules?) comes over during weekday nights. Otherwise, very peaceful and relaxing.

Visited in early May in appalling weather. The site is rough and un-mown with a small gravel area which passes as the 'hardstanding'. There is only one EHU post so if you want to hookup you will have close(ish) neighbours.

Facilities 'tired'- clean enough but dingy.

I thought he site was very expensive for the quality of facilities available- £6-50 per person PLUS ££4-50 for EHU PLUS a charge for the dog ! There is an addition charge for the showers.

Having said all that the location is great- particularly if you plan to climb Cader Idris as the Minfforadd path passes the site.

The is a pub about 10 mins walk away but no shops in the vicinity.
