“Perfect city centre campsite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013

Just returned from our second stay at this excellent campsite in our motorhome. Its location is perfect - surrounded by beautiful parkland (the trees at this time of year are a picture of autumn colour) and a 10 minute walk along the river path to castle and city centre, or take a boat along the river to Cardiff Bay. The site is clean, quiet and well managed. The staff are frIendly and helpful and the cafe offers tasty food and a friendly welcome. Bike hire on site and warm shower block with plenty of hot water. This makes a perfect place to stay to explore the city and is idea for those whose children are studying at the University.

We booked for a week in August and I have to say, it was really great.
We're new to caravanning so didn't know what to expect and look for.
We were pleasantly surprised. The site is within hundreds of acres of parklands but only a 10 minute, picturesque, river walk into the City.
The toilets & showers are acceptably clean and there are two blocks so, pretty well catered for.
The pitches were quite sizeable.
Most people seem to use it for a 1 or 2 night stop. We stayed for a week as we have family in Cardiff.
We're already looking forward to staying for a week over the October half term.
7 nights for the price of 6 is a real bargain.
One thing to watch out for is the entrance is a wee bit narrow for towing a caravan through so take your time.
Stay here - you won't be disappointed!!

Brilliant stop - over . All the people involved in the site are very friendly and helpful . There is an excellent bike hire place and little cafe right on site . We can recommend the breakfasts which are served with a smile and a nice chat ! The site is in a nice part of town , right next to the beautiful Bute Park . It's just a pleasant stroll through the park to see the castle or get into town . Plenty of shade on site with lovely trees . The showers and facilities are basic , but there was plenty of hot water and they were kept clean. We will definitely use this site again.

This was our fourth time at this site, its so easy to get to town the toilet and shower block are basic but always clean and hot showers, the staff are great and always have a smile the only reason I have not given it 5 stars is the mud but we have had realy bad weather and it's still winter great for the Taff trail aswell and if you want a great pint of Brains Black get over to the Halfway across the road.It has hard standing and grass pitches a little city gem but you must book it gets busy on weekends

Had a lovely weekend here, the campsite has nice facilities and friendly staff. The ground was very wet after such a bad summer, but the staff did warn us about this and they had tried their best to sort it out for us. The showers were a bit basic but had good hot water. The campsite is within easy walking distance of the city centre (15 mins) and I would def go again. It was a bit noisy at night and didnt seem to be any staff on hand to keep the noise levels down but it died down eventually.
