Mixed Feelings

A beautifully located well maintained site but our visit was marred by problems with access. We booked by phone and were asked to call at the shop in Rhyader to pay on our way to the site. As we didn't see the shop on the way through we decided to go on to the site and return in the car once we had pitched.We were not made aware either on the website or when booking that we needed a code to gain access. Neither were the two motor homes which were also waiting. The owner arrived after about 40 minutes and did not express any regret for our inconvenience in fact, quite the opposite. The 8 digit access number was difficult to input in the rain and the dark, and after paying £20 for the pitch which included access to a TV point it was quite irritating for us(and our neighbours on site), to find our connector was not compatible and we had to return to the shop to BUY an adaptor! Lovely site, very poor customer service. We did not find any recycling bins.

One of the best.

Situated on the edge of the Elan Valley Estate this superb site is ideally placed for those wishing to tour or walk in this beautiful area. The site has easy access with good views. We were touring and booked for 1 night but stayed for 3 and walked each day from the site. Unlike some, we had no problem with the access code which we were given over the phone when we booked, before payment. Michael collected money from us in the evening when he came to clean the excellent toilet/shower facilities which were immaculate and worthy of even the best of club sites. I obviously don't understand the star ranking system for these reviews but I give it 5 from 5 for all features.

Highly recommended

We have stayed here several times now and highly recommend the site. We have stayed on both the CL and the adjacent (commercial) hard standing field and agree entirely with the recent comment (August 2013) about the confusion arising from changes in access codes for both the entry barrier and the washrooms. It's clearly good practice to regularly change the codes but a simpler way of informing everyone present would be welcome. Perhaps a text message to those present would be easier? The CL on grass looks a bit messy when full and the sloping field doesn't help, as there are no pitch markings or borders. However, when staying in the adjacent hard standing, even when full, we found it quite peaceful and relaxing. All site facilities are very good, though unless permission is given to dump waste water onto trees and shrubs, lifting waste water carriers onto the low brick walls that are also used for chemical waste is difficult. I would ask that the recycling bins are clearly marked for each type of waste and more may be needed as the popularity of the commercial site increases. Access to local cycling paths is excellent and all around is wonderful scenery for walks, cycling and recreation, especially when visiting the dams. It's hard to beat and is probably our favourite location of all. Overall, a truly beautiful location, great facilities and highly recommended.

A beautiful tranquil site

This site is absolutely stunning, but it must be pointed out that there is another site directly adjacent and access is through Llanfadog Fields. At the time of our visit there were infrequent visitors so it didn't trouble us at all but may be a nuisance if it became busy The owner of the site was very friendly and helpful. A key for the gate needs to be collected in Rhayder and the handbook says to park in the Cattle Market. At the time of our visit there was a fun fair in the market which made life a little interesting for us as we started to drive in and then had to reverse out!! Not good with a long outfit. However, if you go to the crossroads in Rhayder and turn right towards Elan valley it is possible to park a little way down and walk back up to the owners shop. The site is well kept and there was a swankey shower block just being completed when we were there. Looked great although we always use our on board facilities. Apart from the above minor niggles, it really is a lovely site. Plenty of walking and cycling and a fantastic tea room (Penbont House) just a short distance away that is an absolute must. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will definitely return and recommend to others.

Stunning Countryside

This site is deep in the Elan Valley and offers beautiful scenery and a remote location. The area of the site available to Caravans and Motorhomes is limited and the 1/2 acre in the description is accurate. The pitches are restricted by the access track to an adjacent non-club commercial site and a steep slope to the river. The former is not apparent when booking and shares the shower block, which provides 3 separate locking bathrooms each with shower, WC and basin. The other site was very quiet during our stay but if busy could make this facility less attractive. The steep slope to the river has the effect of providing an open space and makes the CL site feel spacious. The setting is fantastic but midges abound, this is Wales! Access to the remote and stunning Cambrian Mountains through the Elan Valley is very easy, the cycle path runs past the site. Stunning walks are available on the doorstep and the road leads to the mountain pass over to Aberystwyth and thousands of acres of moorland. I regard this as 5 star access to the locality but if ease of access to large towns and tourist attractions is your preference, this is not for you. Locking and unlocking the gate with the most awkward padlock I have ever used was a minor irritation but be warned that Rhyader is small with a very tight crossroads that is part of the main A44. Parking to collect the key can be entertaining. A fantastic location; the Cambrian Mountains never disappoint.
