    What a beautiful spot. River was lovely and Kevin could not have been more helpful. Had a lovely stay.

    Disliked: 

    Small thing and nothing to do with the site just some very loud neighbours! Struggle to understand why campers don't consider others and keep their noise down.

From the manager...

Hi Alison,

Excellent quiet site with beautiful views. 12/06/2016

    We stayed mid-week and in school term time so it was very quiet which suited us and our dog. There were nice walks down to the river and Builth Wells is only a short (5 miles) journey away. The facilities looked very clean and well organised although we didn't use them as we had all we needed in our motorhome. All in all an excellent site if you want to get away and have a relaxing time just chilling. There was also access to Wi-Fi if you want and the mobile signal is strong and the office has a good selection of books to swap if you enjoy reading.

    Disliked: 

    Although the site was excellent if you've got a dog you need to be careful not to allow it to annoy the hundreds of sheep who seemed to have access to nearly every where apart from the actual site that was protected by a cattle grid at the entrance.

From the manager...

Many thanks for you nice review and we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your visit to Irfon River. We look forward to accommodating you again in the near future.

    This was our first trip in our new Motor Home and as soon as we arrive the site manager Kevin recognised this as he pointed out I hadn't taken the wrapper off the passenger seat. Kevin couldn't do enough to help with the choice of pitch and how to set up. The static caravan owners were very friendly with plenty of advice with the excellent river for my next visit, which will not be long.

Lovely friendly site 01/06/2016

    Site manager Kevin very friendly and helpful, neighboring tents/caravans friendly, everyone says hello as they pass by, lots of people walking dogs.

    Toilets and Showerblock is clean and tidy, a lick of paint wouldn't hurt but at the end of the day you don't go camping to live in the showerblock. Also there are timings for hot water written down but I didn't find the hot water only stayed to these times so just chance it when you fancy. Always toilet roll and paper towels and never busy.

    Lots of places to walk, cycle etc.

    There is a field of sheep opposite the pitches so prepare yourself for bleating all day and night!

    Only thing that would be really helpful is a shop especially in the summer when you could do with more cold drinks etc but not having one doesnt ruin the stay at all.

    Paid £33 for 2 nights and electric hookup on a bank holiday weekend- Very cheap!

    They also said they are putting down more concrete walkways and tarmac roads, site works fine without but may be better in rainy weather not to have to walk over grass etc

    Overall lovely friendly site, would definitely stay again!

    Disliked: 

    nothing I can think of!
