Why stay here ...

There's very much a water-themed aspect to Shawsmead Club Site as its close proximity to the coast and quaint little bays means swimming and water sports will be filling up much of your holiday time here. A peaceful meadowland caravan site, you'll feel positively tiny amongst the vast open areas and wondrous views towards the coast.

Shawsmead Club Site, situated next to the lovely village of Derwen-Gam, is also close to the Heritage Coastal Paths - a memorable experience as is the fishing and bird watching available. Along the coast, there are plenty of beaches and little coves to explore. Four golf courses nearby and the local craft centres will keep the senses stimulated. Its locality in Llanarth, Oakford means that you're never far away from the delights of the area. The caravan park is close to Aberaeron, an old-fashioned small town with a sleepy harbour, pebbled beach and Regency cottages painted in pastel shades. New Quay will resonate with the artist within you with a backdrop that comes straight out of an oil painting. It's better known as a traditional fishing village where fish, lobsters and crab are part of the daily catch.

Happy short stay

We felt very welcomed and 'at home' on this site. despite having no face to face contact with the office staff. The lady we spoke with each time on the phone was very warm and efficient! Obviously certain facility cannot be open at this time - so rating them is not possible.

Very disapointing

Booked this site quite some weeks ago, upon arrival, was met by two rather abrupt staff members, and pointed in the direction of an envelope with my name on, and told to phone them, either before 13.00 or after 14.00 to make a payment Pitched up and phoned 3 times before 13.00 with the phone going to answer phone. Found that the toilet block was shut, seemingly permanently. Checked my booking confirmation, and found no mention of this. Went to reception after 14.00 to make a payment, and explained that I had phoned, but no answer. To be told that they were at lunch, or too busy to answer the phone. When i asked about the toilet situation I was told that it was in the Email, still cant find that. I enquired as to the problem, and was told the boiler was faulty, and would not be repaired this year. I found that rather odd, as I run a heating/ plumbing company, and could repair, or replace said boiler within 2 working days on average. All in all very poor service and staff attitude, seems the CAMC want to close it down

Nice little site

A good old fashioned caravan club site m small and quiet , no tents , no pods , no glamping. Exactly what caravaning is for. Nice friendly wardens with no stupid red tape where common sense takes president clean and tidy what more do you want. We only gave 1 star for families as there are no children’s facilities here

Great site with very nice wardens

We stayed here for 10 days while visiting relatives in New Quay. It's a great site, lots of peace and quiet with long walks. A car essential though to get to amenities and shops. The wardens were also fantastic and very accommodating

Amazing!

Arrived at site on 12th August for 6 nights, very helpful and pleasant wardens advising us of best pitch, quiet site and very well looked after. No children tearing round on bikes or scooters (an absolute bonus). No dog walked as advertised but plenty of lanes to walk dogs anyway. Would certainly recommend if you are looking for peace and quiet and not too big a site although might be better keeping it a secret...
