Lovely welcoming site

This is a great site, lovely surroundings and dog friendly with a beautiful walk around the lake. Owner very welcoming and enjoyed lunch on the cafe terrace overlooking the lake. When arriving please follow the directions in the directory as the access road is narrow and winding. I would suggest leaving before 12.00 and arriving after 1.00 to avoid meeting fellow travelers. We will stay again when we are in the area.

lovely site even if you don't fish!

As none fisher folk wondered if the site would be noisy as fishermen seem to go early to the water, but we never heard a thing. We stayed for the 7 nights for £90 at this site and will go again when in the area. The only drawback was the 1/2mile or so road that was single track to the site, its a quiet road but dreaded meeting another caravan coming the other way. Also the turn into the site is narrow, but going slowly was no problem, but once there it was lovely. The vans are well spaced and look onto a line of trees with grass in front, all hardstanding. The lake is lovely and we walked around it most evenings. Birds of prey flew over regularly and its a long time since we had seen so many song birds. The cafe was most welcoming and food was a good price and well served.with plenty of selection. ususally open until about 2 or 3 in the afternoon. Wifi was free there. The owner was welcoming and helped us out with some printing that we had done {forgot the N.T. membership card).. We visited the area every day and there was plenty to do and see, we really enjoyed the National Welsh Garden just a short distance away. If you are looking for a quiet, clean friendly site with things to do in the area this is for you.

Very peaceful and tranquil

This is a very peaceful site with 5 hard standings which are generous pitches each with EHU set in lovely woodland, There are also two wooden cabins situated on the site which are positioned a fair distance from the pitches. There is a large trout fishing lake just down from the site and makes for a very pleasant walk around. There is a lovely cafe open during the daytime next to the lake which has wonderful panoramic views and does a really hearty and good value cooked breakfast and the staff are lovely and friendly. (This is also where you can pay for your pitch as we didn’t get to meet the CL owner on our visit) The site and cafe are dog friendly. The facilities are basic, just a couple of portaloos and no showers however most outfits have their own facilities so this is not a problem. The Elsan point is found up a short but rather steep hill set in the woods and features a flushable toilet and is clean. There is one water tap which is a little bit awkward as it’s on opposite side of the pitches across the field so you have to drive on the grass to reach it unless you have a very long hose. All in all, a very picturesque get away which is good value for money and has a very relaxed feel.

Fishing fantastic!

We stayed here for just over a week, and it was was amazing - no doubt helped by the perfect weather! Jamie kindly allowed our son and daughter-in-law to put up a tent next to our caravan, and with windbreaks between the two, our small grandchildren were safely trapped in! My husband enjoyed the fishing, and we all enjoyed walks around the lake, watching the ducks and dragonflies, stroking the horses and trying a bit of pond-dipping. The current toilet is a bit of a trek but Jamie is putting in toilets and a shower room under the new cafe, which will be a real bonus. The cafe (currently downstairs) was excellent value, very child and dog friendly - a big thanks to the lady who ran it for her excellent meals and kindness to the children. The perfect place to stay for peace and quiet, wildlife and fishing.

Hidden gem!

Garnffrwd CL is one of those hidden gems that this club member was delighted to discover! ( thanks to a CL search on the club site). The CL is set near a large fly fishing trout lake which abounds with wild life on and around the lake. You can also take a stroll around the lake if fishing is not your thing or sit at the cafe which overlooks the lake and take in the lovely views. At £10 per night, this CL is a bargain! The CL is well laid out plus clean and tidy. The Elsen point is in fact a loo set out in the nearby woods and made me laugh when I first saw it but then it does the job it's designed to do. The tap to flush out your cassette is right next to the loo and tucked in the other corner is a drain to dispose of your grey water. Opposite the pitches is a single tap so you don't have to go far for water. You share the area with two wooden lodges which are at the top of the CL and don't impose on your privacy. The place is peaceful and relaxing except now and then you have low flying RAF jets which for a few seconds, can become noisy. In our four night stay, I only saw two come over and that was later in the afternoon on one day so it should not spoil your stay. The owner, Jamie is a very likeable and laid back Gentleman. When we arrived at the CL, we couldn't find any one so rang him. He told us to pick a pitch and pay him when we bump into him next. None of this regimented stuff you find on the main CC sites! Finding the CL is quite easy and in the final few miles you will spot the familiar brown tourist signs for Garnffrwd. I would advise you to strictly follow the route given to you. We tried the other route in the car and it was on a very twisty and narrow (and I do mean narrow!) country road which comes in opposite to the recommended route. So satnav users beware! The last mile or so to Garnffrwd is a narrow country road so care must be taken as there are few passing places. Those of you with large caravans might find it a bit daunting. Motorhome users should cope better and while we were there, most visitors had motorhomes. The entrance to the CL is just past the farm. Just look out for the club CL sign, you shouldn't miss it. As you turn into the CL, you find yourself on a narrow road which bends to the right. We found over hanging branches were brushing against the right hand side of our caravan which I wasn't pleased with. I did mention this to Jamie (the owner) and he promised to trim them back. This is a CL which we would be more than happy to visit again. And before I forget, the owner is quite happy to take credit cards. You will find his office above the cafe or you can call at the farmhouse. A link to the CL site can be found here: http://www.garnffrwdflyfishing.co.uk/
