Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the manager...
Thank you for your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay. We would like to clarify that it is not splashing we object to, we love to see children playing in the pool, it is when they 'bomb' in the pool, which is not only a danger to other users but displaces all the warm water over the sides. We only object to ball games being played close to other campers because it can be invasive and we provide a ball game field next to the play area,

Thank you for taking the time to right a review, they are always helpful to us. The play area is currently in the process of being refurbished, with further work scheduled for June, and the damage to the pool table was very recent, and has now been repaired.
Excellent site with clean facilities, friendly staff and level pitches
It was clean.
From the manager...
Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we like to use them to improve our performance. We are disappointed that you did not enjoy your stay here. When you reported a problem with the electric we called the electrician in to check your hook up point but he could find nothing wrong with it, so upgraded it to a sixteen amp which seemed to fix the problem. There was an issue with one of our shower block boilers not picking up, this has now been rectified. The pub is about a 10min walk on footpaths, with just one main road to cross. We have tried to put dustbins down the park in the past, but they look untidy smell and attract the wasps, so we moved them by the entrance so that people can put their rubbish in on their way out for the day. The shop is small, but sells the basics, plus sweets and hot and cold drinks. The swimming pool is set to 24 degrees, but will dip with cold rain and excessive jumping in displacing the water.
