From the manager...

Thank you, we clean pitches every time someone leaves. We will always leave lots of space in the middle, even when we are very busy. We find one shower is adequate, its hardly used to be honest. Porta loo's are hired in when we are busy, but the proper loo we have is always going to be best.

    We travelled as a group of 8 (with three tents) and were allocated two plots with more than enough room for everything we needed. There was a massive area in the centre of the field where we, as well as others, were able to run and play games as a family. The staff were welcoming, attentive and very helpful to having a fun weekend. We loved every minute and would definitely return!!!

    We had a great 3 night stay here , initially being warned it was basic we were pleasantly surprised to find a clean and fully working toilet and shower (porta shower) which were more than adequate for our needs. Due to it being bank holiday weekend there were also 2 extra porta loos added to the site and again these were perfect.
    Good dish washing sinks available and a lovely summer house that contained fridges for all campers to use and gave warm dry space for sitting and eating if the weather should have been bad.
    We didn't use the service but saw lots of lovely fire pits /logs being used which could be rented/bought from the site reception.
    The hosts couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful , from arrival to departure.
    We really only needed the site as a base as we had things planned off site for the time we were in the area but I would definitely recommend and we hope to visit again soon.

    Very helpful and friendly. Our first time camping for one night with our 1 and 4 year old went very successful. Both kids enjoyed it, very peaceful site with plenty of other pitches. Pitches next to other family campers with younger children which was fab. Rented a fire pit for £15 definitely recomend it.

From the manager...

I'm so pleased that you all had an enjoyable time. The fire pits are very popular!!
