We visited at the end of August 2016 for 7 nights stay. I have to say the people running it, on arrival, couldn't have been more helpful. We were a little disappointed as we had picked a pitch in advance, not far from the toilet block and right next to the children's play area (we have very little children), and this play area had been removed as it was damaged. Fair enough! They offered us a pitch not too far from the other play area, although further away it was still in view. So our nearly 4 year old could run off some steam. For the first 5 nights it was pretty good. No noise, the seasonal pitchers seemed friendly, further to the bathroom but all good. Now, we had paid to have our OWN pitch, with electric hook up. I understand that cables may run across etc that's fine. We came back from a day trip on the friday to discover that all around our pitch (which we had paid extra to make sure we weren't 'free camping', and thus disturbed), there were tents. Not 3m away as recommended, in fact one tent was less than 1m away. There was not a warden to be seen. The issue is, backpackers had turned up, told they had to pitch in 'free camping' zones, not really guided and as they wanted electric they camped right next to the electric point. We were basically boxed in, and had to really struggle to get our car anywhere near the tent (again, one of the selling points of paying for a pitch). The noise from two sets of campers, who were uncomfortably close and right next to us and each other, was awful. It went on well into the night (despite it being a family friendly site). Again, couldn't find someone to talk to about it. Ended up leaving a day early (partly due to good weather and taking advantage of a dry tent, but certainly motivated by the noise!). Otherwise the campsite is clean, well maintained, friendly and convenient. So basically, my advice, stay here, but not over a busy bank holiday. Or if you do, ensure when paying for your own pitch, it's not near any free camping zones as they are not watched at all. I got the impression that it was a case of taking as much money as possible and sod the rest!

What a fantastic caravan site. It is kept spotlessly clean all around. Nice and quiet site with full service pitches, or none if you like. Great shower rooms, washing up rooms, laundry. I will definitely be coming back. Short walk to supermarket and into town.

To say that this is a great campsite is something of an understatement.
At the end of our stay we both felt as if we had found a jewel in the crown, it really was a gem of a place.
The camp itself has easy access and all level.
The heated toilet/shower block was also easy access, even for the disabled such as myself.
A new years eve party to which we were invited was being thrown and turned out hilarious, with everyone extremely friendly.
This is a place that just has to be revisited time and time again.
Although writing this review may turn out to be a mistake, for if hordes of campers descend on this place, there may not be any room for us.
Ssch it's a secret.

Booked E24 thinking it was backing on to the river, but alas it wasn't, as there is a large hedge there which not only blocks your view of the river it also blocked the sun, got a little grief off the owners wife, that our dogs were on the toilet ramps ( no signs to say they were not allowed up there) and questioned on 'how come we had 4 dogs' but if she would of checked she would do seen I asked 8 months ago could I bring 4 and Peter said yes.
Really enjoyed our visit, we will return but with the knowledge of what pitches to book.

When we booked we chose one of the three purple pitches which appear on the map to be on the edge of the riverbank. Upon arrival we were very disappointed to find no river view at all just a thick hedge between us and the river, no sight or sound of it. We were not the only ones to make this mistake, another couple arriving at the same time thought the pitches had river views
The other downside we soon found out about is the main A40 round which runs right along the side of the site. There is a constant notice from big lorries going past but the biggest problem is the motorbikes all day long on the Sunday.
The site itself is nicely laid out, lawns well cut, very attractive flower beds and very clean amenity block. Showers nice and hot although push button which is a pain.
It's about 5 min walk to a supermarket and further 5 mins into a lovely little town. Gift shops, cafe's, restaurants and pubs are plentiful.
Some nice walks up the back road from the site. One way is a bit strenuous but well worth doing. Over all a very nice site but the noise, particularly on Sunday's, would put us off going back

Chose this site for our week in South Wales and we were not disappointed. The toilets/showers were always spotless very well kept as was the rest of the site. The warden and his wife were very friendly and helpful during our stay, nothing was ever a bother. Didn't find road noise any issue. Locally there is a supermarket and plenty places to get eat in or carry outs like we enjoyed. Only downside was the bad weather we had ( not down to the site)
