Its all about the location!

Only an hour away from home this site is great for a quick 2 night getway. The turning on the left we wanted was only noticed by the fact that we saw a sign for 'Abbey Nusseries' on a large wall but the sign was covered slighty be greenery. Another 100 yards on the right was the metal gate entrance to the site but again the CAMC sign was slightly covered by greenery. When we drove in we did wonder if we were in the right place at first as you dont notice the field where vans park. Your eyes are drawn more towards the minature railway 'station house' and other paraphenalia as well as the greenhouses and poly tunnels. We did the spot a track that wound to the right of the site that then led onto the field and proceeded in that direction and thats when the owner came out to meet us and direct us. So parked up and reasonably level we set up for the Friday evening. We didnt need fresh water so just plugged into the 10amp EHU which was enough for what we need. When we did need water we found that the drinking water tap was quite a stretch for even our long hose so we had to move and drive round to be closer to the tap, so I think this could be a good opportunity to improve by locating a freshwater tap to a more central location. Recycling rubbish was in a bin close to the owners home and chemical waste was a tank hidden away behind some greenery and close enough to the parking slots. What I did notice is that there is audible noise from the main road close by particularly at the weekends with bikers out on their high powered machines so its not the quietest CL site we have been on thats for sure. Great views of the hills that encompass the valley though thats for sure and within easy reach of getting down to the canal and then onto the town and sites such as Horseshoe Falls and the Abbey ruins. So location to getting to do things is great really and is the main positive for this CL. What I did note is that there were no had sanitisers at any of the usual points such as the entry gate, the freshwater tap and the Chemical waste and I thought this was a condition during the pandemic, unless its another welsh rule difference to england? Would I stay again? Probably not as it not peacful enough for me being so close to the main road but its a great stop for getting into town thats for sure.
