 Basic site but made up for by its idyllic location alongside the river with mountains both sides and sheep and cattle grazing.

Nice to feed crumbs to the friendly pair of chaffinches who visited me every morning. Very little traffic along the mountain road. Didn't have any problem with midges in June.

James and Clare lovely people, always willing to help. Will freeze ice packs for free.

Long walk to shower, toilets etc which were kept fairly clean, free hot water, loo roll, soap and hand dryers. Only one shower which was inadequate at a quiet time so expect a queue in school hols.

No phone signal for miles (Orange), generally not a problem but I was unfortunate enough to have car problems and had to keep trotting to the farmhouse to use their phone.

Lovely walks from the camp site. As other reviewers have said, stock up on essentials as there's nothing for miles. Heaven!

 A very nice and well kept, quiet little site.

Very pleasant spot being next to a river, the toiled facilities are a bit of a stroll from the far end of the site, but this shouldn't put anyone off, as they are kept very clean!

A number of pre built fire/barbecue areas and picnic tables available, all in all very relaxed and fab views.

Regularly camps small groups here with no complaints, Clare and James are very friendly and helpful and put a lot of time into keeping the place tidy.

Midge repellent would be a very good idea in July. The Google car passed on an April visit.

Well recommended, especially if you are cycling or enjoy walking.

 We stayed at this beautiful campsite for the end of May bank holiday, we stayed for just over a week.

It's just up from the beautiful Elan Valley on a spectacular mountain road. The roads are very quiet and lovely for cycling on.

The owners are very friendly and helpful, the campsite and farm are very well kept and maintained. There's a nice play area for the children and the shallow river also provided a lot of entertainment. Fires are allowed as long as they are in the BBQ or a fire pit.

We took mosquito coils and spray which seemed to work. They weren't there for very long, only just as it was getting dark then they disappeared again.

They give a discount if you stay for a week or more.

I was a bit concerned at first by the two toilets and one shower but this turned out not to be a problem. The site is a lot smaller than a lot of campsites. Over bank holiday there would be sometimes one person waiting in front of me for the toilet, in the mornings there was a queue of about 4 for the shower but no-one in the evening. After bank holiday you didn't often meet anyone at the toilet block! (There were only 8 caravans/tents).

It is now one of our favourite campsites, a proper get away from it all, very restful and peaceful.

We are planning our next return!

 This campsite is set in beautiful surroundings-valleys and a stream running through it.It is quite isolated but that is a good feature! Next to the Elan Valley and the resevoirs-which are good to visit.

Facilities are 1 male/1 female toilet, 1 shower room(free) and a small room with a sink for washing up. Also there is a small playground and many benches and barbeques.

Main problem for us was the midges- the one night was very bad and we had to wear scarves over our faces as even breathing and talking was difficult. Also got bitten to death! I imagine the site is perfect when there are no midges though!

 Lovely site.

Very quiet: very well run and maintained, miles from anywhere (roads are great fun to drive around though!) and great walks up the surrounding hills. The owners are always ready for a chat or help, and the site has a very laid-back feeling.

The river is a great hit with the young (and not so young) and the Elan Valley is close enough for a good days walk.

Our favourite campsite we've been to yet.

Reviewer: BushBabyJane 25 reviews from this member

 This quiet little site is about 10-15 minutes drive(along a narrow road) from the nearest shop, so make sure you're well stocked!
The location is lovely, surrounded by hills and with a wide stream running through the site. Red Kites can be seen overhead. Very quiet.
There is just one toilet for the men, one toilet for the women and a single shared shower. The facilities are kept clean.
Recommended for a few days away from it all.

Reviewer: C.Heron 4 reviews from this member

 I had a wonderful 12 days based here.
The site manager Mary is lovely and friendly.
There was a very relaxed approach to bookings my extended family were able to arrive at odd intervals and stay for various lengths of time .
It was nice not having to leave by a set time on the day of departure we were able to pack up at our leisure allowing the tent plenty of time to air.
The facilities clean and well kept.
The location is perfect to get away from it all; no phone signal for about 15 miles around on most networks and no shops 'til you get to Devils Bridge or Rayader
 The river was beautiful to swim and paddle in. The play area kept young children amused.
The other site users were friendly. We saw Red Kites, visited a lead/silver mine, walked  in the mountains, climbed up and down the Devils Bridge trail, cycled and had fun.
The sheep were good company too keeping the grass on site short. I bought some fleeces from Mary's son to practise spinning and the wool is lovely.
 The Midges were a bit over welcoming; do take repellents and something for the bites.
 A lovely site .

 Lovely campsite in a peaceful and picturesque location. Here are a few of the features that make this site stand out above the rest.

- Mary Raw, the owner is the friendliest and most helpful person you could ever hope to meet. She made sure that our stay was as enjoyable and relaxing as possible.

- 'Chip' the retired sheep dog is on site during the day to keep the children entertained. We even took him on a walk onto the surrounding hills. A very good alternative for those of us who constantly get nagged by our children to get a pet but for practical reasons aren't so keen.

- The stream running the length of the camping field is also a favourite with the children and is safe for all but the youngest ones. You are able to pitch a tent directly along the bank. It's great to fall asleep with the sound of flowing water in the background.

- Excellent hill walking and cycling from site. Near by Elan Valley and Nant-y-arian provide additional cycling opportunities for all abilities.

But please don't tell anyone about this site. Let's keep it our little secret
