THE PITCHES AND TOILET FACILITES LET SITE DOWN

Picked site as thought it was very near the Mawddach trail but it was down a 1 mile hill to get to Dolgellau. Yes you can cycle and walk it but it was rather hard after the 22 miles on the Mawddach trail. Would also be difficult if you had a pram or wheelchair due to no footpaths in bits. The site itself is lovely with great scenery and very tranquil. The pitches could be better, there is hardstanding but the pitch we had even if we had brought our awing with us we would not have been able to put it out. Whichever way we had parked the van we would have been on a slope up or down with the awning. The hardstanding bit was full of large chunks of slate and again this would have just torn our ground sheet. There was a a bit of sheep poo around and I appreciate its a working farm but not nice when you tread into your van. The site is very large with a CL bit with 5 pitches, a general bit with a few pitches, two campsites and permanent pitches. I can imagine in high season it would be very busy. The toilet facilities are what spoilt the stay for me, they were not nice. There was one block which housed one shower which used £1.00 coin for 10 minutes, two sinks and a toilet (with lockable door) which had a sink and then next door was a door to one toilet and no sink. Spiders everywhere and cobwebs and there is a difference between cobwebs newly made and ones that have been there in a long while. On a scale of 1 - 10 I would give them a 2. I avoided them at all costs. I would imagine these would be a nightmare in high season. I really do think this site has excellent potential BUT the showers and toilets need to be invested in and the pitches just made a bit smoother and flat in some places. I have read all the reviews and the main gripe does seem to be the facilities. The drinking water was brown which was a bit off putting but luckily we had filled out tanks up. Our friends stayed in the pitch next to ours and had the same moans. They actually left a night earlier and went to another site. Also if you have to go to the toilet at night make sure that you have a strong torch as there are no lights at all - which is not good however on the plus side the stars look fantastic. I would not go back to this site unless the toilet facilities are improved to a much higher standard. However the setting is great and very scenic and on the doorstep for a lot of nice walks etc.
