Tranquil

Tranquil site, friendly owner. Stayed for 3 nights. Didn’t manage to find the footpath to the beach or the NT land so had to rely on car. Access not easy if you have a larger unit. Scrapped caravan along driveway. Don’t leave any food in awning as we were out for the day, arrived back to find something had been in our awning, wrecked our awning mat whilst trying to get the lid off of the dog food container. Not all beaches dog friendly.

Peace and Quiet.

My Wife and I have just returned from this well kept site " The Good Life " and if peace and quiet and sea air satisfies your needs this is the site for you. We are both in our Eighty's and found the site and owners very welcoming and helpful . However care must be taken entering and leaving the site,but we have had no trouble getting in or out with our Bailey Cadiz pulled by a Honda CRV. September 2019 WPES4.

Small quiet site

We stayed at this CL summer 2019. It’s as described, quiet and peaceful. It’s definitely cosy. To touch on the lane subject (as per other reviews) it is narrow and if you don’t care about scratching your outfit then you won’t see the issue. If you do then the hedgerow will annoy you. However access overall is good. The surrounding area is wonderful. As motorhome owners, we walk everywhere and the coastal walks are fabulous, its not a flat path and is hard in places but worth it. Cwmtydu is within walking distance and so is New Quay. Stock up on supplies before you arrive and spend your time walking or having lazy beach days.

Simply The Best

This site has to be in our top ten favourite sites. We found it easily, following the directions we were given and had no problem accessing the site with our motorhome (despite previous comments about inaccessibility). We were made to feel welcome by Roger, and his dogs, and he ensured we knew where things were, gave us a map to help with local walks and was a fountain of local knowledge. We went for two days but ended up staying for four as there were so many walks and things to explore. Our dogs loved it here as well, think we may have worn them out with all the coastal walks though!! A lovely tranquil environment, we enjoyed walks to Cwmtydu, to a couple of coves and New Quay. Still plenty to explore so we will definitely be back. If you go ask Roger to tell you how to get to the waterfalls. Kate & Carl

A good time

First of all follow the directions from the handbook and not your sat nav we made that mistake. As for the site as it says peaceful and lovely walks on the coastal path . We walked into New Quay which took us 1 hour and 45 mins. Roger was great and organised a BBQ on our last evening for all serving up home produced sausages. Will look to return Guy and June

Well placed but difficult access

We stayed here for a week in August 2018. The site is in a beautiful area but access to the site with a large car and caravan was really not good. Directions from the main road were fine and we found the entrance with no problem but turning off of the single track lane into the narrow rutted approach track with a solid wall on the left hand side was just too tight a turn to make with our people carrier and 8 metre caravan - even taking it as wide as we could. We had to unhitch and use the motor mover to make the turn. The track is lined by a stoney bank and overhanging branches which scraped along the side of the 'van windows as we inched along it. We had a warm welcome from Mr Pead who gave us the choice of where to pitch in the pleasant paddock and gave us friendly advice on the local area. We enjoyed the local beach with the two seals who bobbed about there all day most days. It was ideal for launching our kayaks and the children enjoyed swimming too. There are lots of lovely walks from the site and it is a beautiful coastline. We were treated to several displays by the (almost) resident dolphins off the harbour wall at nearby New Quay. Most mornings on site the owners dogs would be seen wandering around the caravan field and leaving deposits behind. I resorted to picking it up to dispose of several times to avoid anyone treading in it (or our own dog being blamed for it.) In fairness to the owners, they may have been unaware as we didn't raise the issue with them. Part way through the week we were challenged by Mrs Pead (who we hadn't previously met) over the small pop-up beach gazebo we had up next to our caravan, alongside our half length awning. We use the gazebo to store the kayaks and related paraphernalia as the awning is not big enough (being half length). Mr Pead had seen the gazebo up several times prior to this during the week but Mrs Pead seemed to think we were using it as a tent to house extra people? Our caravan is a 6 berth and we are a family of 6. She did relent when I showed her the contents of the gazebo but whilst I appreciate that CL owners have to comply with C&MH rules, the way it was approached made us feel quite uncomfortable. Wifi signal was poor. It was only possible to get enough signal if you stood near the bins which were behind the owner's house through the hedge. This wasn't a major issue for us as we don't spend much time at the caravan when we are on holiday, but the site is advertised as having wifi and it may be an issue for others. Our teenagers were less happy than us! We had some heavy rain during our stay which left the approach track muddy but we had no problem getting the caravan off the pitch when we came to leave. We had to reverse the procedure of using the motor-mover to get our unit out of the track onto the lane. All in all - a lovely area which we'd like to explore more but this particular site is more suited to smaller units or motorhomes.

Just perfect

We stayed here for 2 nights Whitsun week 2018 on a tour of mid Wales and I wish we could have stayed longer. The site is very pretty with farm animals around. As there is only room for 5 motorhomes / tourers it was so quiet which was just what we needed after visiting some very busy, noisy sites that week. We had the best of welcomes from the owners, we had no problem driving our 8metre motorhome onto the site and the walks from the site down through the waterfalls to the coves are definitely worth a visit. We will definitely return.

Fantastic holiday here

Just had a fantastic week at this lovely site. Fay and Roger were most welcoming and helpful, giving us maps and information for walking in the area. We met some lovely people during our stay and saw red kites and buzzards flying around. We saw some beautiful sunsets too. We had no trouble finding this great site and had a lovely relaxing week.

The Good Life A Little gem

This is a well maintained small site in an attractive and interesting area, with welcoming and very helpful owners. Situated on a well maintained field and with views over to the sea about 1/4 mile away on one side, it is a lovely place to be. Electric hook up, fresh water, chemical and waste water disposal points are easy to use and clearly marked. From the first contact I had with Fay on the phone she was very helpful and even texted me the details with post code and directions. On arrival I was greeted by Fay and her husband Roger who was just equally as helpful. I had originally only booked for one night 21/6/2018 as I was touring west Wales but found the tranquility of the place so addictive I ended up staying for 7 days. Whilst there I met 4 other members who also found the site the same. They went the extra mile to make life easy for us suggesting the beaches walks and even giving us a lift to the local shops on a few occasions. I had no problems entering of exiting the site neither did I see any one else. In 22 years of using CL site for me this is the best I have experienced and will definitely be returning.
