Initially this site looked very well run but after some considerastion we found the visit very "controlled"

We understand needing contact details, and vehicle registration number but why do the owners insist on knowing the exact ages of all visitors... surely a general age range woul be ok. Also why do they need to know your address ? are they going to burgle your house when you're on holiday... having got your address they then need your to tell them where in the country your home is located... but we've just told you our address... don't you have a map ?

The facilities were spotless...the family camping area was well spaced out and open to sunlight.

Sadly the "sanctuary" area set asside for adults proved to be totally shaded from any sunlight and subsequently was damp and poorly drained... to be fair each pitch was very private and did not suffer from passing footfall on the failry long walk to the facilities.

After a previous issue with visitors storing their beverages in the comunal fridge there was a strict policy of removing any foodstuff that was not dairy or meat. Offending items were placed in an ambient box beside the fridge. Whilst I fully understand this, as a chef I was horified to find that somones mayonaise had been removed and in so doing the site owners could potentailly have exposed their customers to several nasty medical conditions. Interestingly the site owners did not remove non-dairy milk

Whilst we fully acknowledge the owners need to make a living from the site in our opinion the "sanctuary" pitches did not offer value for money and will not be returning.
