Overall a nice little site and worth a visit. 28/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    This site is quiet and away from the noise of town. The camping pitches are made up of a number of fairly secluded small fields that accommodate pitches ranging from 2 to 8 berth. Each field had it's own water supply, however toilets are a 5 minute walk along a dirt track from some pitches.
    The layout of this site is as close to wild camping as you can get without forfeiting the amenities.
    There is a small shop on site, at reception, however it's not stocked to supply much in the way of food, more gifts and toys.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet block, while clean, could do with some attention to smarten it up a little. Considering the site is a little more expensive than some others up the area it would be nice if this area didn't appear slightly neglected.

Nice but needs dry weather 20/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The site was nice and staff friendly.
    Shop had a few things and games and toys for children to borrow.

    Disliked: 

    Pitch 7 at the bottom of the site became a mud bath to park and turn your car arround.
    Bad smell of sewage as we walked to toilets along wood path upto toilet block.
    Maybe the weather didnt help as it rained alot and when the car park turns into a mud bath
    And the ground gets more wet as all the water from top levels finds its way down to pitch 7 you think why wasnt you put up at the top levels where there was spare pitches?

    i only stayed for one night , it was ok it had the shower and toilet. but was a bit of a walk for us in the rain, the staff was lovely and very friendly

    Disliked: 

    the reception didnt open till 9am, so if you are on the way to the theme park you cant get your deposit back for the fob you use to get in and out of the barrier, so i had to go back and give the fob back after the park, they close at 5 pm so i was very lucky i caught the receptionest
