Old favourite that is looking a little tired and worn

Spent 3 nights here in July, in glorious weather. Have visited many times before as it is easy to find and the location is good. Pretty and pleasant site, with lots of flower tubs for colour. Bus stop is just outside of the site, which takes you to Abergavenny or Hereford. The site is quiet, despite being well used, cosy, good sized grass pitches, the trains are not an issue for us (except that the trees are overgrown which block any view) - however if you are a light sleeper we would advise you use earplugs as the trains do run all through the night. Disappointing is the toilet block/facilities. We first stayed here back in 2007 and it appears that it has not received any attention since! Despite the best efforts of the wardens to maintain hygiene and cleanliness, the inside requires complete renovation and refit. There are areas of damp on ceilings and walls, dated plumbing, wall tiles from the 1980's and the shower heads vary from one cubicle to another, some work, some don't. Whilst there is hot water and this may be adequate for some club members, there are other sites within the Club network who provide far superior modern facilities. Beyond the control of the CAMC, but worthy of note is the declining Old Pandy Inn, where the welcome is less than warm, despite the location at the end of the lane/site entrance - (days with no draught beer!!). If you venture into Abergavenny, Neil Powell the Butcher on Frogmore Street is well worth a visit for the finest in local fresh and cooked meat products to tempt your tastebuds.

Great site in the Black Mountains.

We have stayed on this site a lot due to cycle racing and cycling events in the area. In fact we have 3 more visits planned. The site is very well maintained and in a great location . The Wardens are great and very helpful, nothing is too much trouble for them. A great site.

A little gem

We stayed here for 2 weeks to explore the Black Mountains area of Wales. Having read all of the reviews before we booked, we were apprehensive but actually had a superb holiday. The site was full both weekends but didn't feel busy! The facilities are dated as many people have commented, but they were kept clean and tidy and didn't seem particularly busy even when the site was full. We worried about the train noise before we arrived, but quite honestly weren't disturbed by them at all - yes the trains run quite frequently and yes they run through the night but never once were we awakened by them. Wardens were friendly and helpful and an excellent dog walk area - all in all a super site!!

Beautiful Surroundings

This site is in a beautiful position just in the Breacon Beacons National Park and in the Black Mountains. As usual, toilets/showers impeccably clean and warm. Some folk may find the trains intrusive, especially overnight when the freight trains come past. Solution...........take some ear plugs; I always have them as my husband snores to wake the dead!! I was awoken the first night but put the plugs in and didn't hear a thing after that. Small price to pay for such scenery. Will definitely return.

Brilliant Wardens!

As we were running late, we kept in touch with the wardens by phone. They designated a pitch for us near the entrance in case it was dark when we got there - very thoughtful. We managed to get there just before they were about to leave, so they stayed and made sure everything was OK for us. Fantastic service! The site itself was excellent, with large pitches, immaculate toilet block and useful information room. Well located for several nearby attractions - the Big Pit is a must! Pub at entrance gives 10% discount to Members, but don't forget your Membership Card! Highly recommended!

Wet Easter

We changed our plans as it was so wet over Easter & made the short trip to Pandy in the Brecon Beacons for 3 nights. A lovely welcome from wardens we recognised from help they gave us at Pembray 3 years before! The roads on site are narrow as are many of the hard standing pitches which on s very wet day made manoeuvring onto the pitch without damaging the muddy grass tricky! However once on the pitch we had a lovely location by the fast flowing river. The toilet block whilst always very clean is very old and needs updating as a matter of urgency! Must be a nightmare when busy as it’s small & rather “used” in appearance. Great dog walk which my dog loved although it was a bit muddy which meant some visitors walked their pets on the actual site which is always annoying! Lots to do locally, walking, castles, pubs & it’s very scenic. Abergavenny us great too! It can be s but of a noisy site being alongside the railway line and A road but that shouldn’t put you off visiting a lively area & well managed site with excellent wardens. A little bit pricy bearing in mind the tired toilet block!

Cosy and friendly little site

We arrived here on spec as a site close by that we'd booked was waterlogged. Excellent and warm welcome from the wardens, dog welcoming too. Site roads and pitches are a little tight. Facilities clean and warm. Good pub serving food within 5 minute walk.

Very small pitches!

The location is very tranquil and the toilet block and other facilities clean and the wardens very welcoming. The site is well placed for exploring the borders areas and using the M5, M50, A40 and A465, travelling from the English West Midlands was easy. I was surprised by the narrowness of the circuit road and the pitches, one had to be very careful not to career into your car when exiting the caravan as there is very little room. The warden asked me to position our two-berth using our motor-mover rather than reversing in, to avoid damaging the grass, as the weather was wet and the ground sodden. I'd certainly use the site again but wonder why the dimensions of the one-way circuit road and hardstanding pitches are so small?

Lovely site

Just spent the weekend here, very impressed with this site, our first visit here and we will definitely be visiting again. Wardens Bill & Julie were very friendly and kept the site clean & tidy, Bill was especially helpful as it was our first trip out in our motorhome.
