Inadequate facilities and poor customer service

If you are looking forward to a warm Welsh welcome, you’ll be disappointed. There is no reception and nobody there to welcome you on arrival. The owner and his helper are abrupt and aggressive. We were so upset by the way we were spoken to and how unwelcome we felt that we very nearly turned around and went home. The site has inadequate facilities with just 3 unisex combined toilet/shower cubicles for the whole site – 5 grass (uneven), 12 hard standing and the camping field! These wet rooms have shower curtains which nobody uses and no hand drying facilities. The owner turns up briefly each day before and after his proper job to clean and provide some, but not enough, toilet paper. Facilities for Covid-19 infection control are inadequate, just a small sign on the noticeboard halfway down the site and a bottle of hand gel outside the toilet block. The only good thing about this site is the location in a quiet wooded valley within walking distance of the reservoirs and visitor centre. We are new to touring and no doubt will come across other poor sites but we won’t be returning here.

Great Location

CL is part of a bigger site known as Elan Oaks. The location at the entrance to the Elan Valley and reservoir system is great. Enter through the CL field, and beyond that are a number of spacious, hard standing, serviced pitches, all very level. Beyond that is a sloping camping field. The CL field is basically a mount, with level pitching only possible on the top section so vans need to pitch fairly close together. A small, modern toilet/shower block is located in the same area - very clean with combined toilet & shower cubicles, but only 3 or 4. Apart from some portaloos in the cámping field, that’s all there is for the whole site. The owner is in the progress of adding more serviced pitches and a new sanitation but work looks like it’s stalled for the time being. The Elan Valley Trail passes alongside the site and is level and tarmaced, great for walkers and cyclists alike. The visitor centre is about 0.5 mile and Rhayader about 2.5 miles. My preference would be for the hard standing section rather than CL area.

Lovely area , shame about owners dogs

Well kept site in a lovely area . Easy access to elan valley way . Several vans parked to take view in but asked to move as untidy , despite taking less room than caravan / awning /car combo .( no instructions re parking before hand ). Today owner visited site and his large lab , wee’d on an awning and put his head into another van and upset dog in there. No apology forthcoming. All visitors dogs on leads and well behaved . Should set an example or keep his dogs at home . Sheep roaming on site as well and one evening saw an employee throw stones at them while chasing them off site .

Llanfadog What A Gem Of A Site

Llanfadog is a gem a of site. The facilities are spotless and clean and the views are just fantastic. The local areas scenery is stunning. Access is good, but definitely don't go over the grid in the road or you would have difficultly with a caravan or motorhome. Overall a fantastic CL site and we will return.

Don't misinterpret the travel instructions.

The site is set in stunning scenery. Mike keeps the facilities spotless. Agreed these are currently available to other campsite users which would be hectic in summer but understand planning has been given for another toilet block. Be aware the site is opposite the Elan Valley Hotel, don't go over the cattle grid or it gets interesting with a caravan.

Well kept site

We were travelling with friends so there was two of us in motor homes. On arrival there was already 3 caravans there and as the field slopes down quite a bit we felt we were parked very close to them as they had spread out. Although they did offer to move over for us we felt as we were only there for 2 nights it would be unfair to let them. The grass was cut short, the facilities are excellent and kept very clean. It is not entirely true that they were for the exclusive use of the CL as the campsite next door were using them too so got quite busy and had to queue at times. Free wifi was a bonus. It is in a fantastic location, close to the visitor centre and reservoirs. Very peaceful, the only thing that spoiled it was the midges that came out in the evening.

Beautiful CL with stunning views, the fields are perfect with clean toilets and showers and even access to the river if you want to paddle your feet ! There are numerous walks nearby as you walk through the village or toward the dam. The reservoirs are stunning and so is nearby Gigrin farm where the red kites are fed daily (closed to public on Monday though) in the afternoon. Our second visit but definitely not the last, TV and phone reception good with sockets at the EHU and great wifi.

So disappointed

We absolutely love this site and have been there a few times. We were so disappointed today that we could not book it for one night only . There was a space available but they preferred to have it booked for more nights . 😢😢😢 I can understand that from a financial point of view but if everyone did that we would no longer be a touring club . We bought our van to be able to tour and enjoy Britain . Sometimes we stay a few nights sometimes one night . That's the joy of touring .

Stunning ??, stunning countryside

Lovely site within a 10 minute walk to the visitor centre. Entrance to the site is via a security barrier, first field is the ??, then there's a field containing 12 hardstanding super pitches, then a camping field. On the ??, 16amp ehu, TV, satellite hook up point plus WiFi. Only 3 wet rooms for the whole site, although there is 2 toilets near to the camping field. The site and facilities are kept to the highest standards by the wealth of knowledge; Mike.

Great CL

Probably the best CL I have stayed at. Very good email communication with owner when I booked. Easy to find & on arrival entrance barrier code worked perfectly. Very tidy large field for Members - 5 pitches EHU & three shower rooms with toilet and basin all in pristine condition. Owner visits every evening and cleans the whole site and is incredibly conscientious. Lovely area Elan Visitor Centre just up road is great for Coffee, Cakes and Lunch. The Dams and lakes them selves are awesome. Rhayader is an old fashioned mid Wales market town but has everything one would need. Only drawback for us was the midges which were a bit of a pain but didn't detract from the site at all 5*.
