Disappointed - Is this REALLY a CL?

Booking easy and good help from Mr Davie when we failed to follow directions. Directions to site only just OK. No sign for CL from the road (Why not?) Surprised to find the "CL" section of, what is in effect a large caravan and camping site, is the poorest location, on a sloping site, quite a way from the 2xWC and single shower. Then became puzzled that there is an area (closer to the WC block) with hook-ups for caravans and I counted 4/5 Mortorhomes there whilst we stayed. Even more intruiging was that I counted 5 further caravans (looked like several had been there for far more than 28 days) these were on hard standing adjacent to the WC block! My hypothesis is that this was the original CL. To make matters worse for we mugs on the sloping "CL"tThere were also about 10 tents on two other fields (which could take a lot more tents - so be warned). This meant that the 2xWCs (one without a sink) and single shower were being used by ALL on the 4 sites! I estimate there were well over 60 people staying in about 28 rigs/tents. So, we were unable to use the shower (when we wanted) and lost interest when a neighbour said, she'd stopped using it after the shower tray was full of slow draining soapy water from the previous occupant - Urgh! We are a hardy couple and "made do" despite our obvious and I think understandable disappointment in the quality of this site. We had a great walk up Cader Idris but became annoyed (when we checked) that the description of a CL does not fit this site, in any way. This is from the CC website: "CLs are privately owned, some by Club members, and they are only allowed to offer a maximum of five pitches at any time for up to 28 days. This means you can enjoy blissful peace and quiet in some of the most beautiful places in the country." That is patently NOT true of this site. We hope the owner takes this as a gentle reminder....
