    A really nice site. Lovely views of river, hills and fields with sheep and cows. Friendly welcome from Kevin. Explained everything about the camping pod, site and surrounding area.

    The camping pod was very comfortable and warmed up very well with the one radiator and towel rail. Futon beds were very easy to set up. Shower was very nice after a day in the mountains. Cooking facilities are good with two gas burners and all pans, plates and utensils required. Very clean and tidy both inside and out. Much better than a caravan in colder times of the year.

    The site was easy to find and within easy driving distance of many beautifully Welsh attractions.

    There are a number of places to eat or get food within 15minutes drive.

    Basically we had a great stay and would highly recommend this site to anyone 😊

    Disliked: 

    I really enjoyed my stay, but will just add a few things which weren't dislikes but worth considering:

    1. Squeaky bathroom door needs some WD40.
    2. Brand new tea towels leave fluff on plates, wash them first.
    3. Worth explaining that sat nav may take you through the firing range up the road and not to freak out unless red lights are flashing.
    4. Slight lack of storage space for an extended stay.

    Hope these points are helpful. But as I said I'd love to return in the future. Thank you 😊

    This site is extremely clean and tidy, beautiful surroundings calm and peaceful. Little kiddies park and a river. Pods are equipped with everything needed and very warm and cosy. A short drive to local amenities and a central location for various walks and activities. I loved every minute of my stay. Staff are very friendly and helpful and a special thanks to Kevin.
