Voor slechts 8.50 pond per nacht voor een tent met 2 personen is deze camping een zeer toffe uitvalsbasis voor Zuid-Wales te verkennen. Bezoek zeker Big Pit.

Travelling party: Seniors


Had per telefoon een boeking gemaakt, maar bij aankomst wist niemand er van. Kreeg wel een plek voor twee nachten. Heb in deze periode maar één keer iemand gezie die de WC's schoonmaakte, waren erg vuil.'s Avond geen receptie, veel mensen die later kwamen werden niet geholpen en gingen of weg of stinden er zo en waren vroeg weer weg. Zij kregen de WC code's van andere campeerders.
