“Gone downhill-disappointed”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

Pitches good size and easy to find, lots of local attractions, shame about the facilities ladies W.C not the cleanest !! Allegedly cleaned daily between 2pm-4pm.
Baby changing facilities not available, very difficult with small child in the showers with nowhere to change a nappy!! Good luck finding a toilet door that locks, also not ideal taking children to toilet in the dark as a lot of light bulbs replacing. Play area very basic only trampoline and slide left. Disappointed after viewing website.

The basic site is ok, however some parts of the site are showing a lack of maintenance. The main toilet and shower block has wires hanging out of the ceiling in places, not all the lights work, the drinks machine is out of order and looks as if it has not worked for a long time & one of the washing machines was out of order. We were informed that the baby changing area was now used as a store room by reception (not handy with a two year old, although when I commented to one of the staff in the block about the lack of a baby change facility they unlocked and showed me round a perfectly serviceable baby change facility). The main games room no longer has vending machines or Internet access. No wifi on site to replace this with either. Generally the facilities are starting to look a bit run down, although the site pitches themselves are fine and well kept, grass and hedges trimmed and other services provided no problem. Overall I regard this as a quiet site overall that would benefit from looking after and a warmer welcome to it's guests.

This was our first experience of a campsite, as we have only recently purchased our first tourer caravan.
The site was clean, quiet, and situated near every thing within walking distance. My daughter loved the park and trampoline.
I did enjoy our weekend at Acorn and would come again, but it would be for a weekend as I don't think there would be much left to venture if staying a week.

After the owner being so arrogant and rude to my children when we arrived i let that one slide, luckily for us and him we didnt have to see him again that trip .
However we did decide to give it another go just in case it was a one off, the site is about 15 miles from our house so decided to leave our caravan there for around 2 months.
My wife contacted the site 3 to arrange with the owner we leave it there over april and may with us going and staying for a couple of those weekends.
However when we packed up the caravan and kids into the car and towed our way there we arrived at the site only to be met by the .... of an owner who had decided that the situaution no longer suit him as it didnt make him enough money and that he didnt have any space left (bar the 2 empty fields). If only he had told my wife on the phone on one of the 3 phone calls before us towing all our stuff.
Beware the owner!!

Room Tip: if you can go when the owener is on vacation u may enjoy ur trip, llantwit is a lovely place to go.

We wanted somewhere near Cardiff. It's a half hour drive away. Friendly service. Good shop. Hot showers. Well maintained. A 20 minute walk from beautiful heritage coastline. Honey coloured cliffs. Old heart of Llantwit Major is small but sweet. A five minute drive or 15 minute cycle.

We only stayed one night and after turning up late, the chap was still very helpful. He even loaned us an electrical lead as ours would not reach. Shower facilities and toilets clean and fine.

We were there out of season and really enjoyed it. Might get quite busy in the summer!!

Nice playground and games room for the kids. They loved the trampoline. Dog was allowed no problem.

Local Indian delivered to us. Delicious!!
