Found Flaxlands after being let down by another CL, the site is an anglers paradise with two fishing lakes and a campers dream with its views over the lakes. We phoned for availability and was answered by very friendly owner who gave us full instructions and directions, arriving at the site as the lakes were closing, we were met by site staff with a small welcome pack with all the details needed together with a key for the gate which is locked at night so very safe, we were not hassled for the site fees and told to settle up in the morning. after pitching up the owner (Gordon) popped in later to make sure we were ok, a really nice touch. The site over looks the fishery with all hard standing pitches each with EHU and its own water tap, separated by landscaped planting, our pitch no5 was total flat so no need for ramps at this CL. The CDP has easy access for our campervan but away from any of the pitches. The is a small holding on site with a collection of chickens, hens, rabbits which would be of interest to all, dogs are welcome but not allowed around the lakes, there is a dedicated dog walk. The only slight negative was the constant back ground traffic noise from the M4 but didn't detract from the site. A very friendly site.
Our first week back at Flaxlands following lockdown. Still the same warm welcome and ease of setting up on our pitch. Tranquil views over the lake and a great opportunity for anyone who likes fishing. We now have booked several more trips here during the year. Great to see COVID measures in place throughout the site. Anna Chapman Caravaner
We visited this newly opened Cl during August 2020 we fully expected some form of Covid 19 measures to be in place especially at the Elsan Emptying Point there was absolutely nothing on site!! There was not any recycling and had to leave any rubbish on top of the red bin down the drive which was locked. We arrived on a Sunday and at no point were we told that the fishing and the gate was closed on a Monday, for saying this was a newly opened CL the pitches were looking tired and in need of some TLC ie weeding, and dog mess being cleaned up! The drive up to the Fishery is in need of attention with very large potholes. The welcome pack did not include any information regarding emergency telephone numbers. This site could be great with more attention.
Comment from the Club
The CL Owner has been in touch as they work hard to ensure their site is well maintained and covid secure for members. As such they have a number of measures in place including a screen for protection on check-in and hand santisers located around the site. Our CL Advisor has recently visited the site and has advised that the caravan pitches sit overlooking the area of fishing lakes. The whole site, including fishing areas is beautifully landscaped and very well maintained. The CL Advisor spoke to members on site at the time who told him that it is a great site and they are planning to return. The pot holes in the road are filled in by the CL Owner several times a year. They regularly check the site and have not ever seen or been informed of dog mess. If anyone ever has any concerns they are always on site to help.
