We found this to be a beautifully located site within easy driving distance of Abergavenny, and with plenty to see around and about. Watch for the right turn on to the road leading to the site! There are walks directly from the site, and a great pub just a short walk away. It is sloping and terraced although our pitch at the top was not too bad, not needing extra levelling. It was a bit awkward to get on to for amateur reversers like us! As others have commented, the facilities are a bit dated, but clean and more than adequate. The tent pitches look lovely and in a pretty spot at the bottom of the site. We didn't need to use the shop but it's handy to have it there. We enjoyed our stay, but the slope of the site would put us off visiting again. The owners are not on site and perhaps that's why the barrier is locked at night.

First time we have been to Cwmdu and I have to say that Andy and Jane are doing a great job. They were always there if you needed them and their hospitality is second to none. Andy was kind enough to let me into his home to watch football. I have camped all over the country and never have I received such nice managers. Great job guys. See you soon.

Ps the food in the Farmers just down the road was nice but a very ltd menu.

Will be back.

Just returned from three days over the late May bank holiday with our daughter, son in law and grandson who were in a tent. This is the second bank holiday we have camped here.

It is in a lovely position for walking, relaxing and the Brecon and Monmouthshire canal is near by. The site owners are very friendly.

Only advice we could give is to avoid the peak periods as the site is very popular and the bottom field is mostly taken up with groups, scouts etc which seems to overload the facilities available. We were nearly always waiting for showers, toilets and even some of the drinking water taps ran dry at peak times. Also the water heater in the washing up room stopped supplying hot water as the tank could not fill up quick enough due to low pressure.

We also felt that to charge three year olds 6. 50 per night was a bit much.

Stayed Here For 3 nights 3rd - 6th August. For a Family trip out. 7 adults 2 Grand kids.

Facilities Ladies was Great so I was told.

Gents a little dated But works and very clean.

Staff. Fantastic.

Shop had Everything for the Basics.

Phone Signal. Dodgy at best & the wifi was on and off. But I'm away camping don't really need them.

Would go back a great site for touring the Area. 10/10

Very fine, site, at the slope of a hill. Fast wifi, and we enjoyed the friendly owners. There is a new toilet building for women and a little shop on the site. You can make fine walks leaving directly from the campsite. Crickhowel is a lovely village nearby, good for shopping.

The true test of any campsite is when its really busy. We went to Cwmdu for late spring bank holiday weekend so were able to put it to the test, which it passed with flying colours. It was fully booked, although a few people didn't turn up, presumably because the weather forecast didn't live up to its early promise.

This is a lovely little site which has a really nice feel. There have been some changes and improvements since we last visited a few years ago. There is a new ladies shower and toilet block with four cubicles of each. I'm not an early riser so probably not the best judge of whether this was sufficient, but never had to queue. Showers are warm and free with good sized cubicles and kept clean.

The bottom field which used to be completely open, now has marked pitches and some EHU which makes it more useable but without losing any of its charm. If you can get a pitch either near the top of the site or in the bottom field there are some stunning views down the valley.

Most of the pitches are of a generous size so it never felt cramped. I think the wardens take some care with placing people so try to avoid putting two huge tents next to each other for example. Although the site is sloping, many of the pitches have been levelled.

Its a great location for walking and an easy drive into the lovely small town of Crickhowell, but well placed for visits in all directions. We drove up to Hay as the literary festival was on and within easy reach.

There is a village pub within 10 mins walk. Its currently up for sale so I hope future reviewers will report on progress. Possibly as a result, our visit was a bit disappointing. Only one real ale available and very mediocre food which is a shame as it could be a lovely little country pub.

My only negative point about this site is that the shop/office is only open for a couple of hours each day (9-10 and 6-7) which is a nuisance if you have a problem (like the ladies hairdryer taking my money but not working!) as there is no-one to ask for help. However that's not enough to put us off and we will definitely be back.
