Lovely site and location

The location and overall quality of the site are both outstanding. Very clean and tidy, with great views of the nearby hills. Very friendly office staff. Superb riverside walk just over the fence, and just a short stroll into Betws. You could even walk to ZipWorld if you wanted to via path out of the site. 4 stars for peace and quiet, just because there is a train line right next to it - only a few trains and none at night, but there is a 6 am train. 4 stars for family-friendliness because of lack of a play area and restrictions on what the children can use e.g. no rollerblades. The site issues one key per unit for access to the facilities, presumably because of proximity to hiking trails, but that does mean you need to be organised! Two keys would have been nice. Overall, highly recommended.

Excellent site - return visit

Had a lovely 3 night stay between Christmas & New Year. Unfortunately as soon as we arrived the electrics in the van decided to pack up but the staff came to the rescue & helped us out. Many thanks to Leo! We will be returning!

Our first visit to the site in September 5 nights. We were at the very end pitch - quite a walk to the toilet but close to the riverside entrance. Pitch were nice and spacious - we had not booked for awning and they wanted a further £10 - which we did not pay - but the pitch would have been the same one? As a Motorhome user i liked that the pegs were in the corner and everyone parked to the side - this gave us lots of room outside our door and you did not feel you 'wasted' half your pitch on the other side as in CAMC sites. Lots to go off and explore - we did Snowden and river and forrest walks.The town is lovely and so many shops for outdoors as I have ever seen in one place. Another one for our return to list.

Good but...

This is a lovely site. Not too difficult to get to, lovely location and well-kept. The staff are friendly and polite and everything was clean and tidy. There are a couple of issues though. Rules arent adhered to. The info states (among other thing) that there should be no scooters, only one car per pitch and no ball games. I saw all of these broken within half an hour of arriving. Not really a problem but why state it? The two car thing was more annoying as a couple of cars were encroaching into the road. More of an issue was the toilet block and pitch allocation. We arrived just after 1 and the site was half empty. We were allocated pitch 33 which was right at the bottom end. I think it’s fair to say this is the last pitch we would have picked. It’s a good job we like walking as it was a thousand steps to the toilets and back. Speaking of toilets, they are a bit inadequate. They were very clean but when you are walking so far, you don’t really want to see them all occupied. Whoever chose where to put the serviced pitches didnt really think it through. The Club could do with standardising speeds on all sites as 10 mph is the limit for this site and as we all know, a lot of people go a little bit over, including site staff..... I will definitely revisit this site as it was lovely and well-placed but I would choose a serviced pitch next time.

A very pleasant site

We had a certain amount of difficulty finding the entrance - although, once we had done so, we realised it is quite well marked. Do not be put off by the statics around the entrance, once one gets inside it is well laid out and maintained. Julie in reception was in a great state when we arrived because she could only fit us in to two different pitches for our two night's stay. This, of course, did not matter in the slightest and we had great fun teasing her about it. WiFi is available at £5 for 48 hours (cheaper than the going rate on Club Sites!) This is a very convenient site for exploring Snowdonia. All the facilities are clean and more than adequate. Recommended
