Inadequate facilities and poor customer service

If you are looking forward to a warm Welsh welcome, you’ll be disappointed. There is no reception and nobody there to welcome you on arrival. The owner and his helper are abrupt and aggressive. We were so upset by the way we were spoken to and how unwelcome we felt that we very nearly turned around and went home. The site has inadequate facilities with just 3 unisex combined toilet/shower cubicles for the whole site – 5 grass (uneven), 12 hard standing and the camping field! These wet rooms have shower curtains which nobody uses and no hand drying facilities. The owner turns up briefly each day before and after his proper job to clean and provide some, but not enough, toilet paper. Facilities for Covid-19 infection control are inadequate, just a small sign on the noticeboard halfway down the site and a bottle of hand gel outside the toilet block. The only good thing about this site is the location in a quiet wooded valley within walking distance of the reservoirs and visitor centre. We are new to touring and no doubt will come across other poor sites but we won’t be returning here.

Great Location

CL is part of a bigger site known as Elan Oaks. The location at the entrance to the Elan Valley and reservoir system is great. Enter through the CL field, and beyond that are a number of spacious, hard standing, serviced pitches, all very level. Beyond that is a sloping camping field. The CL field is basically a mount, with level pitching only possible on the top section so vans need to pitch fairly close together. A small, modern toilet/shower block is located in the same area - very clean with combined toilet & shower cubicles, but only 3 or 4. Apart from some portaloos in the cámping field, that’s all there is for the whole site. The owner is in the progress of adding more serviced pitches and a new sanitation but work looks like it’s stalled for the time being. The Elan Valley Trail passes alongside the site and is level and tarmaced, great for walkers and cyclists alike. The visitor centre is about 0.5 mile and Rhayader about 2.5 miles. My preference would be for the hard standing section rather than CL area.

Lovely area , shame about owners dogs

Well kept site in a lovely area . Easy access to elan valley way . Several vans parked to take view in but asked to move as untidy , despite taking less room than caravan / awning /car combo .( no instructions re parking before hand ). Today owner visited site and his large lab , wee’d on an awning and put his head into another van and upset dog in there. No apology forthcoming. All visitors dogs on leads and well behaved . Should set an example or keep his dogs at home . Sheep roaming on site as well and one evening saw an employee throw stones at them while chasing them off site .

Llanfadog What A Gem Of A Site

Llanfadog is a gem a of site. The facilities are spotless and clean and the views are just fantastic. The local areas scenery is stunning. Access is good, but definitely don't go over the grid in the road or you would have difficultly with a caravan or motorhome. Overall a fantastic CL site and we will return.

Don't misinterpret the travel instructions.

The site is set in stunning scenery. Mike keeps the facilities spotless. Agreed these are currently available to other campsite users which would be hectic in summer but understand planning has been given for another toilet block. Be aware the site is opposite the Elan Valley Hotel, don't go over the cattle grid or it gets interesting with a caravan.
