 Lovely green location with good hard standing, a Central area edging on to Grass all around. Easy and accessible electric.

Great comms from the owner when I enquired through this site.

2 people mh and electric £18 ppn.

Great welcome on arrival.

Very quite and 1 min walk from Centre for alternative technology.

Cader Idris just nearby too. 30 mins drive to beaches.

Suggestions. The permanent vans are tatty and lower the perception. My suggestion is clean them and move them to a storage corner. This would

Make the site perfect.

So in summary a well recommended site With good flat parking. Will stay again. Thanks

 Fabulous and well signposted location for local mountain biking and Dyfi Bike Park all within a 2 mile radius.

The site has amazing potential but sadly looks very neglected and tired and Dyfi Bike Park had never heard of it.

Despite looking busy on arrival as there are several caravans on the site, there was just one other person in A VW campervan and we quickly realised the caravans were all empty or abandoned.

Despite Covid the owners could have easily have opened the toilet block as there was absolutely no risk with just 3 people on the whole site.

All in all a disappointing site but we would return given it's location close the Dyfi etc.

 Great campsite ! Fabulous surroundings with great walking and cycling to be found nearby.

Kids are safe and have loads of space to run and explore. Toilets and shower block are nice and clean.

Not far from the beach or head into the hills and get away from it all !

Reviewer: Sheila Thackwray 3 reviews from this member

 We were pleased to find the site open as many still closed due to Coronavirus. The owner explained the lack of communal facilities before taking our booking, which was very helpful. We are unable to comment on the showers and toilets, therefore.

Caravan pitches are on hardstanding, but we were offered to park "sideways" to the grass so that we could erect our porch awning. Good spacing between pitches.

The site was in a quiet spot, although a bit of road noise from across the river at busy times, but it's in a great location for exploring locally:

- Cadair Idris not far away and had a long walk up the mountain on a glorious day

- Machynlleth only a few minutes away (recommend Hennighan's Chip Shop at the top of town - though make sure you preorder by phone before you go)

- Not far to some lovely beaches (Aberdovey, Aberystwyth)

- Had a wonderful time at the local RSPB site Ynys-Hir (SY20 8TA)

- Local craft centre just up the hill (has great loos also open to the public)

- River running past the site is beautiful.

- Plenty of water points (don't use the one by the disposal area for drinking water!)


Our car has a small engine and while can usually tow the caravan no problem, we did get stuck coming out of the site on the hilly driveway which has a gritty surface which we couldn't grip despite "keeping up the revs". Site owner was helpful and towed the van up for us but we were a bit embarrassed!

Could have managed without the loud music from a neighbouring camper on our last night, but they did stop before 10. 30pm so it could have been worse!

Some previous reviews have mentioned the old scruffy caravans on the site and the less than picturesque bin store/disposal area - improvements would vastly improve the ambience.

It was only for 3 nights and very handy for Centre for alternative Technology (also closed due to Covid) which is well worth a visit (have been several times on previous trips).

We've put 10/10 for child friendliness as the children on site seemed to be having a great time, but no personal experience.

 I attended a course at the Center of Technology up the hill from Campsite.

Campsite is brilliantly close and could take camper vans/caravans too.

The toilet/shower was modest but everything there, working and clean enough. Nice warm shower after 2 days of rain!

Camping was cheap. Lovely sound of river right next to campsite whilst camping - elemental feel.

Reviewer: Climbergirl 14 reviews from this member

 I was quite disappointed with the site, it had the potential to be amazing, but fell short.

The good bits, the owners were really friendly and the toilet, wash up black was lovely

The not so good bits, there were lots of old caravans permanently sited which looked like the had been dumped. One had loads of rubbish left under it. It made the site feel unloved and uncared for. The rubbish area was in the middle of the site and was a mess. It felt much like a dumping ground.

Sorry I won't be back

Reviewer: CunninghamP-L 11 reviews from this member

 Stayed for one night as I was touring around Wales. There was very few people about and was invited to park sideways as it was a more level option.

The showers and toilets are basic but clean and with plenty of hot water and toilet paper.

The dogs had fun playing down by the river. I wouldn't hesitate to come back to this site.

It was lovely and quiet.

 This is a fantastic beautiful campsite with a river running through it. Been going for many years with the family.

The site has now upgraded the toilet block and has great hot showers and is kept spotlessly clean.

Love this place. Also great local shops and pubs in machynlleth town.

 Once again we visited. Splendid, what a very nice place. Lovely owners who are glad to help.

Its not posh, its just beautiful-now that is posh.

Cycling, mountain biking, walking, exploring. Local pub. What more do you want. No childrenís playground, but the whole valley is a childrenís playground.

I believe Disneyland has a childrenís playground-but thatís in Paris.

The site, which has recently been re-landscaped, is about 3-4 miles north of Machynlleth, which is a friendly and interesting town with superb fish and chips and a selection of pubs.

The Corris Craft centre is close by (short drive) and has a brilliant cafeteria with home-made scones ta-boot.

 Would like to say a huge thank you to Raiph for allowing us to stay at the site, when we did our 175 mile trek for Cerebra! He gave a warm welcome, had put up the walk posters and even gave a rare appearance for our event photos with Sir E Bear the charity mascot!

The site is in a gorgeous spot and I would heartily recommend people visit as there is loads in the local area to visit! I shall be making the journey up to visit again soon!
