    Lovely site easy bus ride into Barry and Cardiff, very easy on arrival with barrier code and pitch number emailed a few days before, we will definitely return.

    Disliked: 

    The site was no where near full when we stayed but I can imagine some of the pitches a bit tight to reverse in to when busy and some were way off level requiring quite a few blocks to level the caravans but that said I met a lot of friendly local people who stayed regularly and it wouldn’t put me off

    The view from the site is of the sea. what better view could you ask for? The showers and toilets block is very clean and also offers both facilities for the disabled. The club house offers great food at a fair price, as well as serving tea, coffees(including latte) and hot drinking chocolate. There is a well stocked bar and the outside terrace area is just fabulous with a very good children's play area and again fantastic views of the sea as well as a walkway to the sea itself with its rocky beach.
    There is a hairdressers on site and a takeaway restaurant and a fish and chip shop.
    There is a great swimming pool with flume as well as a gym, steam room and sauna.
    Superb.

    Great place to stay, the site is very wall maintained, being 5 mins from the coastline if you walk slow is fantastic.
    clubhouse is worth a visit as is the large gym and pool if you visiting out of season like we did.

    well done Fontygary

    5 stars

    Disliked: 

    nothing really, staff were nice, site was clean, out of season the shower block floors are very cold, and nowhere to put a bag as only two Hooks on the wall...

    Everything! We had 2 evening meals (one on Friday and one on Saturday) which were exceptionally good. Cooked and presented to a high quality. (Please give our compliments to the chef). The pitch conditions were very good and the whole set up was well thought out. Other campers were quick to offer help when we had a problem starting our vehicle (nothing to do with the park!), but shows how nice the other campers were. We used the indoor pool which was lovely. The whole park was very clean and we will definitely be returning in the future.

    Disliked: 

    The entertainment was not accessible to us as our daughter is 14 (a very old one at that) and the childrens entertainment is too young for her. It would have been nice to be able to enjoy the artist as a family.
