Gorgeous CL

Plas Forge
Lovely CL, a big field running beside the river where you're free to pitch up wherever suits. It's a basic site, so it feels easy relaxed and fuss free. The owner is lovely, there to help but equally happy to leave you to enjoy yourself. At £5 a night it's easily the best value for money at any site we've ever stayed. There's a tiny bit of noise from the road which climbs behind the site, but nothing that would cause any great concern. Highly reccommend.

Such a Great site A+++

Plas Forge
We stayed on this site for two weeks and enjoyed every minute. The grass was cut short and even the clippings were picked up. Lovely views and a river running by. The site owners were so friendly even taking our dog Rocky for walks. There is a little hut with leaflets, maps etc. We have been to many CL sites and this has to be one of the best. The field is a bit lumpy so we spent a while getting really level. A highlight was watching Mr Evans feeding the Red Kites every afternoon at three pm. My wife and I would love to go to this site again although it's a long journey for us. A+

Favourite site ever!

Plas Forge

Idyllic setting in the valley next to the river. Hosts could not have been more helpful and welcoming. Mr Evans made sure we stood in the best position to see the Red Kites feeding, which was the highlight of our holiday. The walk into town along the main road was quite difficult; fast traffic and no pavements. However there are some other lovely local walks which more than make up for this. Stayed here in July 2019.

What a CL site should be, almost back to nature..

Plas Forge
First of all, PLEASE NOTE that the GPS location of the site in the 2019/2020 Sites Directory is wrong................. The correct GPS position is 52.58210 -3.82320 Well what a warm welcome we received when we arrived here, mind you it was helped by the fact that Mr. & Mrs. Dia Evans are spaniel owners, as indeed we are as well. The site is a large virtually level and well drained field with the quite adequate waste disposal facilities tucked away not far from the entrance. The grass was nice and short and made even better by the fact that the cuttings were collected as well, so no nasty bits to tread around inside your vans. If you are a dog owner, by taking a short walk back into the village, cross the bridge and then turn immediately left there is a very good walk up and through some forestry commission land, but walking in the other direction from the site isn’t to be advised as there are no pavements and numerous blind bends. The one thing that spoilt our visit was that our neighbour had a small caravan which they patently used for cooking and washing in, as for sleeping, they had 2 quite big tents erected next to it and as for what they were smoking, well it most certainly didn’t smell like tobacco!! Will we be going back again..... most certainly we will because for only £5 per night CL sites don’t come any better than this little gem.

We have just spent 2 weeks at this site and it was most enjoyable and peaceful. Mr Evans checked on the site and its occupants each day and was ready with advice and help if needed. As stated in previous reviews, the site entrance is not as difficult as it may look on Google earth - we have a long outfit and managed it without difficulty. The site is very well kept with short grass. We could not get a TV signal which Mr Evans confirmed and a mobile signal (EE) was only possible in a few places. Sitting in the awning listening to the babble of the river and the sound of the Red Kites was heaven!
