    The location was nice, showers nice and hot. Friendly great pitch. Excellent rates. Free WiFi bonus

    Disliked: 

    Kids not allowed to splash in pool, dogs barking all night. Being told not to play tennis etc and to play in a field. Not much in shop.

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,

From the manager...

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.

    Disliked: 

    Electronic in the caravan would just go off for no reason. Showers were always cold. Clothes Dryer didn't dry. There was no pub in walking distance only if you treasured your life. The dustbins were to far away. The onside shop didn't sell much. The heated swimming pool was always cold. The pitch we had wasn't level.

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.
