 Camp site was lovely, very clean and well laid out. Very friendly,
I would definitely go back.

Problem with the postcode on the paperwork, could cause problems if you are towing, Told it would be corrected. Only reason itís not a 10.

 A pleasant place nestled beside a river with pathways down to it and trees on two sides. The owners live next door to their

Twenty pitch site, in which some of the grass pitches are on an incline and four hard standings. Most seem to have electric hook-up. There is only one shower (with toilet), the water is HOT, a toilet and urinals. Also has an outside dish washing area.

There is a compost toilet and a portaloo, too. The owners are cleaning the communal areas regularly.

There are two drinking water, grey and black waste drains and a dog wash.

The area is clean, neat and the owners are friendly and accommodating and their two dogs are friendly and relaxed. Access to the property and through the gates, is big enough for an American ex-military bus to get through. I know. I witnessed it.

The Cycle Route 81 passes right next to it, although not many cyclist on the road, lots of walks and some along the river. There is a village within 10 minute drive where restaurants provide take-away foods and a village shop for all you basic needs.

 What a lovely site. Hoist where great, direct and to the point.

Very clean site, toilets, shower very clean.

A nice touche was giving each pitch a food waste bin. Good recycling area.

Great stay will go back again.

 Lovely little site. Quite when we visited. Very clean and tidy. Lovely facilities.

Walks and river access close to site.

On B Road but it didn't bother us.

Would definitely visit again but would probably visit in the low season

 This was a CL site and has enlarged as a C&CC site in its first season.

The pitches were very level. Mainly grass with only two hard standing.

I saw 4 EHU points with water taps (on a push button system which was a bit of a pain. ) The whole site is in a protected lea right next to a river which you can hear at all times. There is direct access to a beautiful river walk.

Brand new shower block and the nicest one I've seen so far this year. Spacious, wet room style, with lots of hot water. Separate toilets very clean.

It was mid season price of £17 +£4 for EHU which wasn't cheap but the facilities were very good.

You are on a B road with a little traffic but you are near a sawmill which you can hear quite a bit with accompanying delivery lorries.

Would stay again, it's a welcoming site in a beautiful area.

 Site was clean and tidy. Warm welcome and quickly completed the administration.

I arrived late but there was no problem contacting the proprietors and checking in.

Reviewer: Aaronw 1 review from this member

 We booked this last minute as the usual site we go to was fully booked. Dolau Afon was a very pleasant surprise. Although far away from local conveniences, if you are willing to travel out to Aberystwyth to stock up then it is only a 20 minute drive.

There is a small fridge on site to store fresh milk. The site is well kept, pretty and clean. There is just about enough in the immediate vicinity to keep you occupied for a short stay if you love walking, cycling or even paddling.

There is Devil's Bridge waterfalls (15 minute drive) which is a must see. Also Elan Valley dams (45 minute drive) are lovely too. I would go again and take the bikes next time. Jill is lovely, very helpful and owns two lovely dogs.

Apart from being too far away from local conveniences, having only 1 shower is a slight negative. We went during covid restrictions so not too many on site but I imagine when full that would be an annoyance.

 A lovely site. It has well thought out

Shower and toilets and electrical outlets for those of you who need it.

 Beautiful setting, high above the river so no worries from it bursting it's banks.

Friendly owners and sparkling facilities.

The River is lovely to paddle in for all and in deeper pools good swimming, and not too cold
