Access to the site is via Lon–y–Felin, which is a short lane off the A483. The lane is not very wide but has passing places, two bends and a downhill section, all in a total of about 150 yards!! This might sound a bit daunting but don’t worry, it is not as bad as it sounds, very large caravans and American Motorhomes have visited the site without any problems.
All internal roads are a semi permeable hard surface, which can result in a few loose stones on the surface. Entry to Oakwoods and Gorse Meadows is via a short hill.
The Reception/shop is on the left, almost at the end of the lane. The arrival parking is level and access to the building is via a short ramp with contrasting colours on the edge or shallow steps. The entry door is 900mm (3 feet) wide with a small lip.
Inside there is a high and low level Reception Desk, seating and ample room to access the shop shelves, freezer and chill cabinet.
Access to this building is via a shallow concrete ramp with fencing to the outer edge. A level area then provides access to the 4 separate rooms via doors that are 820mm (33 inches) wide.

An emergency call alarm is fitted and the door opens outwards.
The washing up area has level access from the top of the ramp. It is covered by the overhanging roof with partial open sides. The 4 sinks have drainers.
Three separate meadows are available and are a mixture of all weather pitches and grass. All pitches have 16 amp electric hook ups. The all weather pitches have a top dressing of 15mm stone and steel pegs are required for awnings. A low level of lighting is provided in all the meadows.
River Meadow is mostly level with easy access to the reception/shop and amenities block, making it ideal for anyone with walking difficulty.
Oakwoods Meadow has a gentle slope, or terraced pitches in places where the slope was less gentle. A large area in the centre is allocated for recreation but no play equipment is provided.
Gorse Meadow is smaller with all level pitches making it particularly suitable for tents.
Oakwoods and Gorse Meadows gain pedestrian access to the amenities block, reception/shop via steps that are illuminated during the hours of darkness.
