Wouldn’t stay again

Had a one night stay here and did not like it at all. Obviously a working farm so you should expect it to appear as such but this was really quite messy and dirty, filthy dogs running around barking and the stink of a nearby sewage plant I think. The worst thing was there was no sign for the toilets, water or bins. The owner did give us a description on arrival but we couldn’t find the toilets at all, we just wandered around barns and sheds and random huts full of junk, to no avail. So we ended up leaving the next morning without even a wash and went to the nearest service station instead. It really doesn’t take much to put a couple of signs up. The footpath is easy to get to but there’s just a stench of sewage up there so not a nice place to walk. It was quiet and relaxed there though. We didn’t feel watched or hassled. I can’t think of anything else good to say.

Good little site if you don't have a dog

We found this to be a nice, peaceful little site with easy access. The hosepipe for drinking water is a bit unhygienic though - in a farm building across the yard. Our main complaint however was that the 2/3 farm dogs were rather too aggressive towards our dog and kept harassing him, even right next to our caravan. Our spaniel was frightened to come out of the caravan. They (one in particular) also urinated on every bit of our caravan that it could reach. To get to the footpath along the estuary, we had to either go through a field of cows or run the gauntlet through the farmyard to reach the footpath next to the farmhouse. It's such a shame - it would probably be fine with no dog

What I imagined CLs to be.

I was a bit worried by the only other review. There was no need, we liked it and stayed for an extra night. Near to the M4, but you cannot hear it, access is down a long country lane. Always a good sign of a peaceful site. You enter the farm yard and go around to the left side. The pitch is well tended grass and some hard standing bounded on 3 sides by a fence and hazel hedge. There are lots of power hook up points. We liked the views across the fields to the river embankment. We watched the cattle watching us, sheep wending their way along the embankment and the treat of a morning parade of a family of partridges. I don't know why the other review mentioned that there was no foot access to the embankment, we did the 5 minutes walk there several times to enjoy the magnificent views over the River Severn Estuary. We are into history. This is a good base from which to visit the Medieval Castle at Caerphilly (free parking Sundays), Caerleon Roman Legionary Fortress (free entry to museums and parking) and we were particularly impressed with Caerwent Roman walled market town (free entry and parking). Try Bruno's (Museum St/Backhall St) bakery/cafe in Caerleon for bread rolls the like I haven't tasted since childhood. Their Bread and Butter pudding was pretty good as well! All in all, a working farm but generally a lovely quiet 'CL' with great views, somewhere to walk to and places to visit. We would go again.

Right by the Severn

Visited for an overnight stop. Pitching area rather small & felt a bit cramped. Whole set-up much larger than CL. Right next to the CL area is a much larger camping area, so the CL wasn't as quiet as I'd expected. Some pitches back onto the other 'site' which is just the other side of a fence. CL overlooks a field beyond which is the river Severn the other side of a bank. It's possible to walk to the top of the bank by a couple of footpaths nearby (but not from the CL itself) It felt as though it needed a bit of sprucing up.
