Great first experience of a CL

Vishwell Farm
Well kept site and good space between each pitch. It's a working farm so not always someone around at arrival/departure, but this was all explained when booking so no problems at all. Really peaceful site even though it's not far from the main road, and lovely outlook. This was our first time at a CL and really enjoyed staying here. Will definitely be back soon!

Revolting toilets and shower facilities

Vishwell Farm
This site was easy to find, tranquil and a useful location. However the toilets were filthy. I’m not sure if they were actually cleaned at all during our 2 night stay. The showers were also grim and only worked for a limited time after inserting a 50p coin into the meter on the wall. Furthermore there was a group of travellers (around 3 caravans and work vans) who were staying on the site- they appeared to be staying on a permanent basis. So this site may not be for everyone, we won’t stay again.

Lovely CL site

Vishwell Farm
Been to this CL a few times. Toilets and showers are the only downfall. Very basic and you have to pay for the shower. I must say though, it was £15 a night last year and can’t understand how it’s gone up to £20 this year. A 33% rise is unreasonable especially as there has been no improvement in facilities. Will think twice about going there now.

The site consists of 3 fields, separated by post and rail fencing. One of these fields is adjacent to the separate hard standing, making 4 in all. There are toilets and showers but they are a bit antiquated and could probably benefit from a refurb. Acess to Cardiff is easy, with a bus stop a couple of minutes walk away. The same road in the opposite direction leads to Barry Island or the coast road to places like Llantwit Major and St Ogmore, with its large dog friendly beach. The Wenvoe arms in the village is also dog friendly and does good food. When we arrived, given the different fields, we asked where to pitch and were told to go anywhere. We were also told that the site has planning permission for 15 vans. We've stayed on a mixed CL/commercial site before, but usually there's some separation between the two. On both of the Saturday nights we were there the 15 van limit was exceeded, and that's without factoring in the 2 caravans (both definately in use) tucked away behind the hedge. There is plenty of space at the site, so this wasn't an issue, but if you are looking to book what members would understand to be a CL I'd suggest that this isn't the place for you.
