Reviewer: Cotterrell 1 review from this member

 Everyone was so packed in we only stayed 2 nights instead of 4, we booked and paid for an extra car but good job we didnít take it because at one point we had cars parked either side, such a shame. Less crowded it would be a nice site.

We didnít use any facilities or went in to the shop,

 If you like a traditional campsite without a lot of razzmatazz then this is the place for you

Mainly level grass pitches, clean if somewhat dated facilities by some standards

Either. 35 min walk into Porthcawl or 15 mins to bus stop

Wardens are very friendly and accommodating including towing us off after an horrendous weekend of almost solid rain

Visiting caterers appear at some weekends throughout the season

 We were a party of 10 in 3 touring caravans. Rather strange that we weren't given pitch numbers until we arrived, although we were assured that we would be together, and we were.

The problem was we were very near the play park which meant that children congregated there. They also played ball games on the green area outside our caravans, kicking the ball into awnings and hitting the caravans several times! The parents seemed not be bothered by this at all.

The site was lovely as were the wardens who were very helpful. The approach to the site is through a very narrow road, you wouldn't want to meet another caravan coming the other way!

A well stocked shop which was open long hours. 10/12 minute walk to Nottage where there are 3 pubs. A short drive to Porthcawl, which you probably could walk. Toilets and showers were well maintained and there are disabled facilities.

I would visit the site again but not during school holidays unless I could pick a pitch away from the play park. A green area for ball games would be a good addition to the site.

Reviewer: Caergeiliog 15 reviews from this member

 Staff very friendly, toilets/showers were very clean and grounds well maintained. 3 Village pubs and local beaches all within walking distance, Major, major, major concern over the approach road as its very narrow and a railway bridge 9 foot 3 inches high at lowest point.

Our autotrail tracker FB went through with literally 2 inches to spare
( a hairy experience, which I would not want to duplicate again).

Site was fairly busy, which I guess is what it should be in the summer months. Quiet at night. Paid £22. 50/night for MOHO, incl elec. And 2 adults

1: Proximity to Nottage village and Porthcawl


1: Had to pay full fee 6 weeks before arrival

2: Access lane to the site very overgrown - be very careful if arriving with new van or a wider van, hedges scrape both sides

3: Small, tight pitches, tents in particular were shoe-horned in during busy periods, looked like a real fire hazard

4: Very high percentage of seasonal pitches, residents were very cliquey

5: Despite being stated as forbidden in the T & C's we witnessed a dog being left howling in a seasonal unit for over 2 hours; a dog roaming free and pooping on our pitch; plenty of car movement around 10pm - midnight; and the odd gazebo!

6: The smell of the toilets was at times overwhelming

7: The sanitary bins in the ladies loos had all their lids missing (bar one) - not nice at all

Reviewer: Pozzle 14 reviews from this member

 We booked for 5 nights over the phone. No internet booking available. It was mixed up by the reception staff so we had an issue on arrival

We were also lead to believe it was nearer to Porthcawl golf club, for walking, than it was so had to drive and unfortunately the gates are closed at 10pm and not opened until between 7. 30/8. 00am in morning. We needed to leave for club at 7am son one day We had asked if they could be opened at 7 that day but it proved so difficult we stayed out that night elsewhere

The pitches are very close together. I was a bit concerned we wer3 too close.

There are a lot of seasonal pitches there also.

Personally we found it very noisy and some children used our unit as a place to run around, under our windows.

I wouldnít go back and did not enjoy our stop at this site at all

 We really liked this site, staff very friendly, toilets/showers were very clean and grounds well maintained. Village pubs and local beaches all within walking distance.

I would have slight concern over the approach road as its very narrow [although distance is short] I wouldn't like to meet another unit coming the other way.

We would stay here again.

Reviewer: Dragon56 23 reviews from this member

 Stayed 2 nights on route from lincolnshire to west wales and we wish we could have stayed longer.

Excellent site with very good facilities. A well stocked shop and only a 10 minute walk into the village. Very friendly staff and the site is set in some lovely countryside.

We will be back when touring the area.

Reviewer: Gailwilliams57 2 reviews from this member

 It was our first visit to brodawel site and have to say it was one of the best we've been to quiet clean fab showers and toilets and loved the peace and quiet during the evenings.

We walked into porthcawl which took us half hour at the most. The owners was really helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them.

We'll definitely be regular visitors this year
