Our third visit here in three years [see my reviews July 2017/2018].

Nothing to add except that once again it was a very enjoyable stay at this lovely site.

And that we'll be back again next year.

Overall a good site but could be great. It may be because it was very early season but a little extra effort would make it very nice, e. G. The toilets and showers etc were clean but the bins, shelves etc in them had not been cleaned for a while. Someone, not me, had enscribed a large question mark in the dust on the lid of a waste bin in a toilet that had been there for sometime. The only reason for this comment is that at £21per night 2 adults and 2 dogs, it’s not cheap, you can stay at club sites for that much with heated and very modern facilities.

The area is intensively farmed with sheep and we couldn’t find anywhere to let out dogs off lead which is a problem for us as we keep our dogs fit. So this is the only reason we wouldn’t return.

The local pub, The Grouse, is warm and welcoming, the food was “adequate” But a little overpriced, we can understand this as it’s expensive to keep a pub running is a small village.

I have stayed at this site before for a motorbike rally and stayed again last weekend for the same.

When I stayed before the showers and toilets inside the barn, over the road from the 'Rally field' seemed recently built and were in good condition. This visit it seemed that they had not been cleaned since my last visit. The portacabin in the 'Rally field' was dark, dirty, smelled like public toilets and full of cobwebs maybe its because I have been spoiled by the french campsites I have just sepent 15 nights in but I felt the standard of these facilities had fallen since my last visit and I wouldn't bring my family to this campsite. We also attend a bike rally at the Erwlon campsite in llandovry and the facilities at this campsite are excellent.

The grouse pub was great the scenery and local attractions too.

I hope that the owners think about refurbishing the wash facilities.

After visiting last year, we have just returned from another great [long] weekend here.

Whilst there, we rode into Llangollen on the railway, visited Llyn [Lake] Brenig, Betws-y-Coed, Horseshoe Falls, Ffestiniog and took a barge ride over the Pontycylt Aquaduct.

WE had a meal one night in the 'Grouse Inn' at Carrog, excellent food at a reasonable price [the beer is quite nice too, £3. 50 per pint]. The only fault was that England lost to Croatia at football that night, it did'nt put us off our dinner though.

A nice touch on the campsite was the eggs, fresh hens eggs, of varying sizes, under a box in the washroom area. Under a box with a sign saying 'please keep covered, as crows enter and eat the eggs'. At £1. 20 for six, a real bargain, just the thing for a hearty breakfast.

Showers are free, the only problem being that one needs to press the button every 6-7 seconds or so. Irritating.

Cost?. £20 per night [2x adults, touring van plus awning with EHU ] our one small dog was free.

The weather was fantastic, really hot, and both myself & our dog took a dip in the river [just down from the campsite at the other side of the road]. Have you ever taken a swim with your dog?. LOL. Try it, its good fun.

I can only repeat what I said in my review last year. [the facilities are of a very high standard etc]. And we'll be back again next year.

Just bought our caravan, and drove straight to this camp site. Lovely place and everyone was so friendly and helpful, we had lots of questions being new to caravanning. The site is basic but has all you need and just £20 a night for two with awning can't be bad. We were lucky with the weather too had a great week and are going back for a long weekend next week, can't wait so much more to explore there.

Nice little site and very easy to get into. If you like steam trains then this is the place. The toilets/showers are very basic and whilst we were there the large field opposite had a very large rally club with lots of 'vans and tents and although they were supplied with toilets in a mobile unit most of them were using the caravan site toilets. The pitch sizes are generous and the site is peaceful most of the time. You can take the train to Corwen or Llangollen which is a nice day out. We would certainly visit again but probably not when the rally/club field is in use. Good stopover site if travelling to or from Holyhead.

Really nice site mix of hard standing & grass. We only went for 7 days, & end up staying an extra 2. Toilets & Showers are good plenty of room, loads of hooks for your gear, we have stayed there over Christmas, the waters hot, but Showers are drafty in winter. I would recommend bring your leveling ramp, as some pitches have small tilt cross ways.

Nice pleasant farm site with basic facilities.

Hard-standings small and ok for summer use but soft and muddy in other months when more rain etc around.

This is an adequate site for good weather but is NOT an all year round site by any means. Showering/toiletry is very basic even in warm months with unheated facilities but not acceptable out of season. Visitors expecting winter facilities will be most disappointed.

Also, supply is 10amps and really should be 16amp to be considered an all year site.

Pls note that the site does not claim to be a 4 star club site but to claim to be a 4 season site it really needs to upgrade to basic 4-season grade facilities.

Would we return again?. Not as it stands.

We stayed at this site over a very busy Bank Holiday with our 15 year old and his friend. It is situated in the beautiful Dee Valley with views of wooded mountains and the picturesque heritage Llangollen

steam railway right next door. The site has one field with electric hook ups and fairly basic toilets and showers, waste and water. Two other overflow fields (one across a minor road) were full too, there is no doubt that the facilities were creaking at this very busy time but everyone seemed happy and many campers were frequent visitors. The site is well kept, it had a nice friendly and family centred vibe.

There was no excess noise, apart from the steam trains during the day.

The owners are a charming and very hard working young couple who were very helpful. The surroundings are beautiful and the river where you can have access to swim or canoe is a short walk away. We ate at the local pub The Grouse and it was a great meal, good value and delicious. The steam train to Llangollen was a great trip and the little town has good shops, some nice cafes and a lovely walk by the river or canal. Other places to visit include Pontcysyllte viaduct a World Heritage Site and stunning, Bala, Conwy, Betws y Coed, and loads of great local walks.

We really enjoyed the area, plenty of things to do and see and the views are stunning.

WE stayed here with members of our Car Owners Club, we were booked into the field over the [quiet] road from the main site, but the grass was cut short, the field was level and the toilet facities [in a portacabin] were reasonable, if a little basic, and it was'nt too far just to walk over the road to the site facilities, which are excellent [good hot showers [free too] and good clean toilets].

The site is bordered on one side by the Llangollen Steam Railway and the River Dee[?] on the other side. The village of Carrog is just over a very pictuesque bridge and looked nice, but we didn't really get time to look around it as we were too busy doing other things.

When we booked in [at the last minute] we were told there was no EHU pitches left, we were prepared to accept this [and use our 12v system]. But one of the campsite staff heard about us, and helped us out by plugging us into the electric supply for the toilet portacabin [now that's what I call real 'customer care']

Whilst there, we visited 'The Great Orme', we took a drive up the Llanberis Pass [we would have liked to have gone up Mt Snowdon, but unfortunately, the Snowdon Railway does not allow dogs on their trains]. We had a day on the Llangollen Railway and an afternoon in Betys-Y-Coed.

Would we go back?. Most definitely, and if our 'Car Owners Club' don't book it again next year, we will be going on our own anyway.
