Disappointing 24/07/2017

    On first impressions when you arrive it all looks very nice, the grass areas are kept in nice order and there are very smart dry stone walls around the edges of the pitches, the pitch we had was level and the electric supply was close by, so far so good, we meet the owner who was very pleasant. That evening when I went to use the showers it was a reality check, I must say the shower block is in a very sorry state, the panels separating the loos are it seems made from plastic tongue and Grove and it doesn't look as if it's had a proper clean in a good while, the the shower cubicles are also very dated and the backs of the door on the shower I used had dirty marks over it and there were cobwebs above the door, the toilet and shower block appear to be a converted portacabin, and definitely needs updating
