Reviewer: Michaelmorris 10 reviews from this member

I'm not sure where to start with this review. My feelings about the site are rather mixed.

I'll start off with location. The site is just a pleasant 10 minutes flat walk along the sea wall from the centre of the very pretty small harbour town of Aberaeron.

The site is pair of flat fields separated by a wire mesh and barbed wire fence. You are right next to a rocky foreshore, but can't see it due to the earth bank sea defences.

There are hook points all along perimeters of the camping fields. The grass pitches are a reasonable size, but there is nothing separating each pitch.

Facilities.

They don't sell anything on site, nothing. No milk, no tent pegs, no gas - nothing.

The clean small single toilet block could be best described as adequate. It's rather dated and only had three showers per side and a total of two washing up sinks. There are no laundry facilities. The elsan point is rather basic and no designated place to empty grey water (we put it down the loo).

Now the sting - it's £24 a night with EHU (cash only).

IMHO it is significantly overpriced and the facilities are (by modern standards) very basic, but the location is great. If the owners were to invest some money in the site by putting in more, bigger, better loo blocks, a motorhome point, a basic shop and a bit of landscaping and had online booking and accepted cards they would have a killer site that would probably be booked up for much of the year.

I don't often put a review in but I feel this site is unfairly shown as a nine star site. To put this site in the same category or higher than the Riverside sites at Betws y Coed and Crickhowell defies explanation ! I should say that this review is from a motorhomer of a reasonably sized unit (7. 8M). The facilities here are way below what I would consider to be a top rated site. There are no real hardstandings ( the ground was really soft at my visit ) and no grey waste disposal ( and I do mean none so where does it all go ?). The chemical disposal point is a Heath Robinson affair without any flush method. The toilet block is a breeze block building with a corrugated asbestos type roof with no heating at all ( and it was cold ) and only has 3 showers in the gents which are so tight for space that I witnessed a rather large chap having to get out to get dressed in the main toilet area, which was not a pretty sight. I think the number of pitches against the toilet provision must lead to queues at busy times. The site needs some serious investment in my opinion. The best bit about the site is it's location.

We planned to stop in Aberareon as we had visited before a couple of years ago and wanted to return, this was our first visit to this site and we werenít disappointed.

On arrival there was no one available in reception but we dialled the number on the door and were given a pitch number, the site is a very large flat field with pitches around the edge, to the left there seemed to be more long stay pitches and towards the end of the field where we parked was non-electric. We made the mistake of describing our unit as a motorhome, which it is in size, but as we donít have an on board toilet/washroom maybe we should have said campervan as we probably would have ended up a bit closer to the facilities block; it was a bit of a walk from our pitch!

The facilities were clean and very well looked after as described on the website, with great hot showers. I only spotted 2 drinking water points which was a bit of a pain as we had to walk half the length of the field just to fill up the dogs bowl however I have never seen such immaculate water points, the site is obviously very well cared for. It was easy to level the van and we were very quickly sat in the sunshine eating lunch.

We were pitched at the end of the field which had access straight onto the coast path with easy walking into Aberareon (close enough to take our chips back to the van!) or in the opposite direction along the beach.

We ended up missing the owner when they came round to collect payment however they were happy to wait until the following day when we dropped it off at the farm house.

This is a lovely site and we will definitely go back.

Stopped here for a night when we wanted to visit Aberaeron and take in a nice walk along the coast path. We hadn't booked and on arrival a clearly displayed notice informed us to call the owner; they allocated us a pitch over the phone and said they'd catch up later for payment.

The location is great with the small town centre and harbour being a 5-10 minute stroll, the beach being 30 seconds away and the coast path closer still. There are a couple of convenience shops, fish and chips shops and a few pubs all within walking distance The facilities were clean and tidy. The weather had been quite wet prior to our visit, but the fields were firm enough and no concerns of getting stuck. It was nice to sit outside the van and hear the waves breaking on the beach.

A very nice site and no doubt we'll return to it when visiting the area again.

Lovely site with great location right on the beach with a very short walk along beach or on beachside path to lovely little town of Aberaeron. Very well maintained site. Pleased to have a bin on pitch and be right beside the beach path. Toilet block had sufficient toilets and showers with little outdoor area for dishwashing. Sockets in toilets which we were allowed to use for charging were greatly appreciated! We just turned up and very impressed with everyone involved in site.

Reviewer: Rhinomurphy 5 reviews from this member

This site is a gem! The site has well kept grass, cut whenever a unit departs, individual bins and excellent re-cycling facilities. The toilet block is slightly outdated, but it is spotless and there is lashings of hot water. The site is a 10 minute walk along the beach to a lovely little seaside town of Aberaeron which has bars, restaurants, small supermarket and no amusements or candy floss. Bliss! We were on pitch 110 which has views of the sea and magnificent sunsets on good days! It did rain quite a lot when we were there but the ground drained well. The beach is pebbly so this is probably not a site suitable for a bucket and spade type holiday. Thoroughly recommended.
