Great location let down by clientele it attracts. 06/02/2018

  • Liked: 

    Stunning location with a great view, 15 minute drive to Hebden Bridge.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets very basic, not particularly clean, minimal washing facilities, though we were ok for 2 nights.

    Sileage in the field - some children played on it.

    Site attracted a lot of groups who made a lot of noise late into the evening. One group was quite intimidating when we politely asked them to be quiet at 11.30 pm as we had young children sleeping. a lot of drinking and loud swearing in front of children ours and their own.
    Their dog used the front of our neighbour's tent as a toilet, they complained, nothing was done by the staff, the dog remained off the lead for the two days.

    Another group of teenage lads kicked football at our tent even after they'd agreed not to and after we'd reported it to a member of staff. On last occasion, ball hit our tent and woke our children. Noisy at night, the lads tried demolishing a wall to build an ad hoc fire out and ripped branches of trees next to our tent for fuel.

    This in the 'family-friendly' field! Didn't feel a safe place to take our kids and rules didn't seem to be enforced. It might suit some groups, we just wanted to get away.
