disappointed

It is with sadness that I give this site a poor rating. Unfortunately the welcome we had was not as in other reviews.We really didn't want to be asked if we would be using the facilities (which were very good) or to be told that the electricity bill was very high! The lady who was directing us as to where we could site our motor home clearly had no idea regarding to safe distances between vehicles or health and safety (such as under trees!). We only stayed one night, changing our plans and booking a second night on a more welcoming and professionally run site.

Fantastic site

We were welcomed by Gwenda who was very helpful, and returned later to give us a walking guide of walks from the site. This was very useful. We also met her 2 sons who were both very friendly and always took time to speak to us. The toilet and shower were well kept. We arrived not knowing Gwenda and her sons, but left feeling that we were friends. Beautifully scenery could be seen around each corner you turned. Will definitely return.

Dolgadfan CL

We visited this site mainly due to it's location & the reviews given. It's a well looked after little site & owned by two lovely people as already mentioned. Best call owners on arrival as they will tell you where to pitch if you aren't sure. Wonderful surroundings by the site & central to a lot of fabulous places by car. I can only mark it down slightly due to road noise ..... but you do get used to it & it's only really busy at weekends. Very relaxing & we had the place to ourselves all week. Weather was gorgeous too & helped us thoroughly enjoy our 7 days. Mrs Anwyl is lovely & will stop for a chat to see how you are. Had a nice lunch in the Triangle pub in Rhyader but the Red kite feeding centre was closed when we went. No TV/radio signal from our pitch & we didn't miss either ! Can recommend. Martin & Mandy :-)

One Night Stay

What an absolute gem of a place this is. Family run on a working farm by two lovely people. It cannot be ignored that the toilets and shower are without question the best we ever seen on a composite and potentially better than a fair few would have at home. Totally peaceful with nature all around. Simply couldn’t rate the place high enough - many thanks once again.

What a find!

Needed a site just for a night stop off on our way home and picked Dolgadfan for location and electric hook up. We couldn't believe our luck when we found the site. As others have mentioned it is a working farm but the only noise we heard were the sheep. Mrs Anwyl and her son Brychan were lovely, the scenery stunning and the sheep no bother. The shower and toilet are fab, like something from a boutique hotel not what you would expect to find when you open the barn door. We will definitely be planning another trip so that we can do some exploring of the area and enjoy the peace and quiet this site has in abundance.

Dolgadfan Down Time

Are joined at the hip to your modern technology? If you can’t be separated from it, except by surgical procedure, then Dolgadfan is not a place I would, in all honesty, recommend! However, should you feel the need to unwind, slow down a bit, step off the rat race treadmill for a while, and become part of the Human Race again, may I suggest you don’t waste a minute longer, and take a trip to this place of outstanding natural beauty. Okay, so sometimes mobile phone signals are a bit ‘iffy’, and the television reception suffers the same fate but, take the time to breath fresh air, watch and listen to the birds, take one of several walks in the area, directly from the site, do whatever you want to, when you want to, without being dictated to by schedules, timetables and other technological demands. My wife and I have just returned from a seven night, peaceful, break at Dolgadfan where Buzzards, Swift and Pied Wagtails were observed from the caravan and Owls heard hooting at night. The on site ‘exclusive use’ toilet and shower facilities put some Club sites to shame and are among the best we’ve seen. In Llanbrynmair there’s an excellent Cafe and a couple of Pubs which serve superb food along with a shop, where most basics can be purchased. Give Dolgadfan a try; speak to Mrs Anwyl, or her son Brychan, and get yourself down to this green and pleasant land; what have you got to lose? You may regain some of your humanity and a renewed outlook on what’s important, and what can wait.

Walking Break

Stayed on this site for 5 days, really peaceful site, with fantastic walking in the area. The site owner, and her son, were very accommodating, always willing to chat, and pass on useful info about the area. Weather was superb,which always helps. It was nice to leave the car alone, and head off on walks from the camp site. Great little convenience store in the nearby village. Really recommended

Lovely

Spent a couple of days here with friends April 17. Lovely and relaxing, beautiful setting. Used their printed guides to go walking in the hills, the views were breath taking. Two miles to the village, where the cafe alone was well worth the trip, also had a nice meal in the pub, at very reasonable prices. I'm sure we'll be back.

The best shower and loo ever

We were here the week leading up to August Bank Holiday, with one other unit! Why???? Its a fantastic location, very peaceful and with the best shower and loo we have seen on any site, CL or commercial. In fact it wouldn't disgrace a 4 star hotel. Unlimited hot water, large shower cubicle and spotlessly clean. The site is on a working farm, but is quiet for all that. The owners are very friendly and lent us detailed maps for local walks. We went to the Dyfi Osprey Project, SE of Machynlleth on the A487, as well as the Ynys-hir reserve a little further on. The main purpose of the trip was to re-visit the Centre for Alternative Technology north of Machynlleth on the A487. I wasn't as impressed as I was in 1976! We will be back!
