Date of Visit: August 2017 Unit:  Touring Caravan
Reviewer: Dharmadoo 7 reviews from this member

 We were looking for somewhere to stay near to Ynyslas beach and caravan touring parks were hard to find in this area, they all seemed to be static holiday parks. I found this site via an online search and despite there being no recent reviews posted online we took the chance and decided to stay anyway, as it was only for 2 nights and 1 day after all

I sent a message via the website and after receiving no response in 2 days I called and spoke to a lady who pretty much just said 'no need to book, just show up', I questioned this advice as it was a weekend in August after all, but she was adamant. There was no obvious reception area or host but after we had been there a while a young man appeared and told us that we should have booked and there may not be room for us, luckily there were 2 grass pitches left with water and electric hook-up facilities.

Sadly a few of the vans and tents without water had been using the tap on our pitch and the grass was quite muddly and water-logged.

The touring site is a field at the back of a large static site and takes both tents and caravans/motorhomes. The views across one side were amazing, you could see out across the Dyffi estuary to Aberdovey. It seemed really well kept and the shower/toilet block looked pretty much brand new and well lit etc. I say 'seemed' well kept, we never actually used these facilities for reasons which will become clear shortly.

We'd arrived after work at around 7pm on Friday so after a quick set-up we drove straight off to Borth to enjoy fish and chips on the seafront. We had a lovely time with our dogs walking along the beach and then watched the sunset from a little bar right on the beach. We returned to the site just as it was going dark (around 9pm) only to find that TWO families had pitched their tents right next to us and squeezed into a tiny area. There were essentially 3 generations of 1 family staying in these 2 tents along with their 2 dogs and their transit van, all merely inches from our caravan. They had placed their chairs in a circle right outside our caravan door so I had to ask them to please move them so that we could open our door, This was met with hard stares and a reluctance to comply. Then their 2 dogs came bounding over face to face with our on-lead dogs. I have to say that their dogs were not badly behaved or aggressive ( which is more than can be said of the owners) but there is a a rule that dogs must be kept on the lead, not all dogs are friendly and this can cause a lot of stress for the owners of dogs that are not so friendly if another dog is loose and runs right up to the non-friendly dog. So I had to then ask them to please grab hold of their dogs. This was met with even more reluctance, silence and no attempt was made to control their dogs.

We retreated to our van, not feeling like we wanted to sit outside with them and enjoy the rest of what had been a pleasant evening. They had well and truly invaded any personal space that we had and we and spent the night listening to them arguing between themselves, one grandparent did nothing but scream at the grandchildren all the time and constantly tell them off. They were still setting up their tents and cooking until gone 11pm. All of this was right outside our van so they may as well have been inside with us, it was that noisy. At 2am (yes 2am) they were still partying, shouting, drinking.

After very little sleep we woke to a lovely sunny morning and decided to eat breakfast sat outside our van as we usually do on a nice day. We opened the door and were choked by the fumes from their transit van that had the engine running away for no apparent reason. I politely asked if they could please switch the engine off as it was inches from our chairs and our van and we wanted to sit outside. I can safely say that world war 3 set off at this point and without going into all the details I set off to find the young man that appeared to be the site host and explained to him what had happened. Quite where he had been all night and why he hadn't put a stop to the noise at 2am I have no idea. He seemed to have no authority and certainly wasn't the type of character who knew how to deal with such a situation and so the argument just escalated beyond all control with him just standing there listening to it all. It resulted in both my husband and I being both verbally and then physically threatened by the unwanted guests from hell next door. Needless to say repacked up and left before we'd even eaten breakfast.

I wouldn't return and can't recommend it I'm afraid as we had such a bad experience. I realize that everyone can have a bad experience and this is not the reason that I can't recommend the site. Its' because there was no control, no boundaries, no quiet time was enforced, the on-lead dog rule wasn't enforced, the host (if you can call him that) wasn't up to the job and not of strong enough character to control any unruly guests and resolve any issues. These people should never have been permitted to set up their tents and park their van within inches of our caravan, let alone pitch up when it was dark and then make noise for the next 2 hours setting up and cooking followed by partying until gone 2am. This is what ruins the experience for everyone else who abides by rules and know how to exist in polite society.

 What a treat - lovely clean site brand new toilet block, best I have ever seen.

The view is fabulous. 17pn great value.

Will be back. 10/10. Stayed here for 3 days wanted to stay longer. 5 minutes to the sandy beach- the dog loved it. Overall fantastic. TV point, your own water tap and hookup which is 16amp and night light. Showers are free.

 My unit is a pennine pathfinder. I agree whole heartedly with Muffandbud. This site has great facilities, clean and up-to-date toilet and showers which are free. Great views over the Dyfi estuary and the hills behind. On arrival, pick your own spot, set up and look for Chris. He does have his mobile phone number up on the reception office window and he is very friendly and helpful.

17 is great value for this site with EHU, good disposal facilities but Borth is not really anything special. We were there for the golf. Great links course (oldest in Wales!) and highly recommended for you golfers out there. Would definitely visit this site again.

 We recently stayed on Ty Mawr for 4 nights, the campsite is easily accessible from the main road along a short private drive. The site for tourers and tents is adjacent to a static site under the same management. Each pitch has plenty of room and seviced by EHU, Mains water and TV aerial point, there are several seasonal pitches around the outer aspects of the field.

The views of the Dovey estuary are splendid with the mountains providing a beautiful backdrop.

We found the campsite to be a perfect retreat and we felt very rested after our break there. It is situated approx one to two miles outside Borth and Ynyslas, being approx 12 miles from Machynlleth. Borth is sadly somewhat run down but is well worth a visit for a scenic walk along the sea front, several nature parks are within easy travelling we were disapointed that Ynys Hir does not accept dogs or have any facility for them to be Kennelled whilst people visited the site, what do you do on hot days when you cannot leave the dogs in the car, perhaps the RSPB can review this.

The shower and toilet block is second to none, in fact several of the people from the static park were seen to use them, this could be a problem in the busy times!

Chris the site manager can usually be found somewhere either on the tourer field or the static field, he is very customer friendly and eager to help and advise. The reception etc is rarely staffed as new users to the site we would have gained from an info pack, it was just a matter of finding a pitch and getting on with it, we saw Chris the following morning.

We will return and will gladly recommend the site to friends, it is the perfect place for relaxation and chilling out

 Lovely site, quiet with beautiful views across the estuary and of the sea.

Excellent value for money at 17 per night over the bank holiday weekend for a caravan, awning, electric and water.

Lots of work appears to have been done on the touring area with new electric/water hook up points with low level lighting.

Brand new toilet/shower block is lovely and has a room for dish washing if required.

Tourers/camping are on a totally separate field to the statics and it felt very open and spacious.

Had a great time and will definitely be back.

 The site was ok but not much to write home about. Value for money, hmmm I think not.

Below has said it all. Staff were not friendly and its a site I would not return to.

They had a touring area and also an area for seasonal caravans.

I have been to a lot nicer places so will give this a miss in the future.

I guess my outlook would have been different if they had provided plenty of hot water. They did keep the shower area clean

 Please note, this site is NOT the similarly named 'Ty Mawr Holiday Park', a Park Resorts site in Towyn, so please don't get them confused.

Reviewer: CAE89 5 reviews from this member

 We've just returned from a long weekend at Ty Mawr and it is a lovely little campsite. The campsite has recently been taken over, the toilet and shower blocks were in temporary porta cabins but they functioned perfectly well. The campsite is quite isolated and is not really within walking distance from the attractions in Borth.

Good points: clean toilets and showers, flat pitch, clean campsite, beautiful location, friendly owners, lots of wildlife on and around the campsite and it is good value for money (5 per person per night).

Bad points: no place to wash up dishes, showers did have a habit of going cold.

I would return, especially knowing that improvements are being made. I would recommend booking in advance as they do not have many tent pitches.

 As pre warned on booking the toilet block is old but very functional. Upon arrival we were greeted personally by the owner of the site who was extremely helpful. There is no play area for children but the camp field is more than big enough for a game or two.
Electric hook up is available if pre booked. Nicely mown level ground, wonderful view, sea can be seen from camp field although a short drive away. We were very impressed as novice campers and are in the process of booking again. Happy Camping
