 Lovely level campsite and very friendly and helpful owners/managers.

Position is perfect for exploring the town (which is lovely with lots of quirky shops) walking in the mountains and along the river. Table Mountain walk is a must!

Facilities are plentiful and were very clean. Pet friendly. Highly recommended site.

 The site comprises two areas, one smaller area parallel to the houses along the road and a larger area with some static ‘lodges’ but mainly caravans, some of which are seasonal. We were in the smaller one with our motorhome for 5 nights.

Generally things are informal in a good way – we had previously been on a Caravan Club site where rules seemed to be OTT and staff unfriendly. After asking if we needed to top up with fresh water with the green hose near the entrance we were shown to our site, where utilities and general guidelines were pointed out and that was that.

We had no issues with our pitch, which of good size and close enough to the services to be convenient but far enough away to not be disturbed by other users. The services block was clean, effectively containing individual wet-rooms with shower, basin and WC. My wife says the ladies had functioning hairdryers.

The location is ideal – close to the beautiful little town, the river and green parkland. There was virtually no traffic noise. Crickhowell has an amazing choice of independent shops and Aberyswyth is only a short drive away. We used the A4077 and A465 instead of the A40 - less traffic and more scenic.

Would we go again? Yes, definitely.

 Nice tidy clean campsite on the edge of Crickhowell.

Convenient for the shops, pubs and cafes in one direction and walks along the canal and up to table mountain in the other.

Good toilet, shower and wash up facilities.

 The Riverside park site is fantastic, the showers and toilets are clean and modern, Alex the Site owner, is so accommodating, nothing is too much trouble.

The site itself is mainly grass pitches, with beautiful views of the Brecon Beacons.

It's close to Crickhowell (bit of a hill to walk up but not too bad) where there are wonderful independent shops, butchers, bakers, small department store, coffee shops, pubs, the Bear Hotel, takeaway food outlets, Tourist information Centre, and a brand new craft ale bar called Treebeard,

It's a real pleasure to walk around the town and shop, the locals are so friendly, plus there is a regular bus service that runs between Abergavenny and Brecon that stops in Crickhowell.

We had a lovely week at the Riverside Park and will be back again later in the year.

 Excellent facilities, clean and modern. It was a short walk to the town and was a nice quiet place with no road noise heard.

The grounds were well kept and we were offered a choice of pitches as we were in a campervan and they considered the 'flatness' for us.

A great site and we shall be returning.

 The site is beautifully kept and Covid Guidelines are clearly stated upon arrival.

The shower block was spotless. The scenery around the site is stunning a d it is a very short walk into the town with exceptional individual shops and pubs.

Paul who runs the site makes visitors very welcome and is a mine of local information. I would say He is the beat I have come a ross cor making you feel welcome and valued guests.

Definitely will be back

 A lovely site located within easy walking distance of Crickhowell’s pubs/shops etc.

The toilet and shower block was amongst some of the best we’ve seen - very clean and taking social distancing seriously.

Paul the Warden was very friendly and helpful, greeting us on arrival and telling us everything we needed to know.

 Have just come back from a relaxing week at the Riverside Caravan Park, Crickhowell. What a brilliant site, the Covid 19 regulations are being adhered to, the number of showers and loos have been restricted, but we didn't have a problem, we felt very safe. Alex and Paul were so welcoming, and accommodating.

The pitches are great they are all on grass, and the views are spectacular. The town of Crickhowell is lovely and about a 10 minute walk away (it's a bit up hill but not too bad)it's full of small independent shops, there's a hotel (The Bear) there are 2 pubs in the High street, the Dragon and the Brittannia, there are a Chinese takeaway and a Fish and chip shop, if you cross the river there is the Vine Tree and a short walk away is the Horseshoe Inn where we spent a very pleasant couple of hours.

The countryside around is incredible, there are plenty of places to walk the river and the canal are beautiful,

It's a lovely place, we'll be back!

 Amazing campsite! Such a lovely location which is perfect for exploring the east Brecon Beacons.

The warden was so welcoming and friendly without being intrusive, nothing was too much trouble.

Facilities very clean and tidy.

Really quiet campsite perfect for relaxing and exploring.

Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet base perfect for walking.

Reviewer: Greg M 40 reviews from this member

 Every now and then you come across a little gem of a site and this is certainly a little gem.

From the friendly welcome and details of the site and local town we knew we would be enjoying the site.

Paul the manager is on the go from early morning till late evening but makes you aware he is available anytime and always seems to have time for a chat.

The showers and toilets are superb and spotless. Grass and surroundings were well cared for.

Information on local walks and the town are available in the reception.

TV reception on our aerial was limited to the basic channels although I didn't bother trying very hard.

Mobile reception (Virgin) was fine.

Town of Crickhowell a short walk away with some interesting shops, as is the canal. Bridge End pub just outside was ideal for a drink and we enjoyed a very nice meal there also.

I can highly recommend this site and it's staff. We left feeling we had had a real break. Thank you for your efforts Paul and Alex the owner.

We will be back soon.
