Nice Quiet Site

Small site, very quiet location, but easy access to New Quay, Llangrannog, Aberaeron, etc. Lots of nice coast path walks. Saw lots of dolphins from Newquay Harbour and peninsula just north of Llangrannog. Must get fish and chips from Lime Crab on New Quay harbour. Easy access to site. Not really family friendly due to no playground or field, but not issue for us. Toilet block closed so can't comment on that. Would happily return.

Rude staff

Very rude staff on arrival, We were told to take the envelope in the hut next door with our name on then pay and then go find a pitch, When I asked about dogs walks off site I was told to look on website, when I explained I had already done this and that the website told me to get the info from the campsite the answer I got was that was before covid 19. She was very rude and we were amazed at how she had spoken to us. We got into our motorhome to look for a pitch and stop to fill up with water only to be shouted at by the husband telling us we can not fill up there and to look at our maps to see where the motorhome service point is. by this time we were ready to drive straight out. We have stayed at a lot of site and have been a member for over 5 years, and I must say this is the first time we have had to deal with very rude staff. The walks from this site are not suitable if you have more than one dog, we have three and the roads are narrow and cars do come around some of the corners very quickly. The site should not say this is suitable for dogs. We will not be returning

An excellent place to stay in the peace and quiet of the countryside location.

There has been some negative reviews of this site over the past couple of months. Some people saying that they turned up and did not know the toilet facilities were closed. We booked this site many weeks ago and were told in writing and on the website that the facilities were closed due to a technical issue. Perhaps the club could have communicated this in a better way but all I can say is that in all the communications we were told. Everything else about this site is perfect there are some very small motorhome pitches but that didn't bother us the wardens were superb and we saw two sets of wardens so I don't understand the comments above that the wardens were unfriendly they certainly were not with us. With regards to the toilet and shower facilities being closed I think the club could have communicated that there was no point fixing the technical issues as the cost would be a waste as the facilities are to have an extensive upgrade. All in all as the title suggests it is an excellent friendly place to stay close to all amenities very near to New Quay with all that has to offer. The town of Aberaeron is very close by with excellent food,including street food, pubs and other facilities.

Lovely stay

A lovely, quiet site in a great location. Near to lots of beaches, and towns and villages such as Aberaeron, Newquay, Aberystwyth and Cardigan. Plenty of walks locally and beaches close. We had a lovely time. An excellent non contact check in during these strange times too. No children's park, but plenty can be found locally.

Lovely, peaceful site, well placed for exploring the area

This was our first visit to a Caravan and Motorhome site and we were not disappointed. The site was easy to find and very well placed for exploring this beautiful area of mid Wales. It was well maintained by the friendly temporary wardens and we appreciated the availability of sanitiser at each service point. We loved the peace and quiet at Shawsmead. We came to the area to walk the coastal path and found more than enough walks to keep us happy for our 10 day stay. It is a short drive to the coastal resorts of Aberaeron and New Quay, both offering a variety of eateries. We would highly recommend fish and chips at the Lime Crab on the harbour at New Quay, followed by Dolphin watching from the quay - we saw plenty! Keen walkers will love the glorious stretch of coast between Llangranog and Ynys Lochtyn, a small peninsula with wonderful views of the coast in both directions. We also visited the Teifi wildlife centre near Cardigan, where there are waymarked walks for all abilities and the National Trust property Llanerchaeron is a couple of miles away and offers a variety of woodland walks. We look forward to returning to this lovely little site.

Happy short stay

We felt very welcomed and 'at home' on this site. despite having no face to face contact with the office staff. The lady we spoke with each time on the phone was very warm and efficient! Obviously certain facility cannot be open at this time - so rating them is not possible.

Very disapointing

Booked this site quite some weeks ago, upon arrival, was met by two rather abrupt staff members, and pointed in the direction of an envelope with my name on, and told to phone them, either before 13.00 or after 14.00 to make a payment Pitched up and phoned 3 times before 13.00 with the phone going to answer phone. Found that the toilet block was shut, seemingly permanently. Checked my booking confirmation, and found no mention of this. Went to reception after 14.00 to make a payment, and explained that I had phoned, but no answer. To be told that they were at lunch, or too busy to answer the phone. When i asked about the toilet situation I was told that it was in the Email, still cant find that. I enquired as to the problem, and was told the boiler was faulty, and would not be repaired this year. I found that rather odd, as I run a heating/ plumbing company, and could repair, or replace said boiler within 2 working days on average. All in all very poor service and staff attitude, seems the CAMC want to close it down

Nice little site

A good old fashioned caravan club site m small and quiet , no tents , no pods , no glamping. Exactly what caravaning is for. Nice friendly wardens with no stupid red tape where common sense takes president clean and tidy what more do you want. We only gave 1 star for families as there are no children’s facilities here

Great site with very nice wardens

We stayed here for 10 days while visiting relatives in New Quay. It's a great site, lots of peace and quiet with long walks. A car essential though to get to amenities and shops. The wardens were also fantastic and very accommodating

Amazing!

Arrived at site on 12th August for 6 nights, very helpful and pleasant wardens advising us of best pitch, quiet site and very well looked after. No children tearing round on bikes or scooters (an absolute bonus). No dog walked as advertised but plenty of lanes to walk dogs anyway. Would certainly recommend if you are looking for peace and quiet and not too big a site although might be better keeping it a secret...
