We've stayed at this site a couple of times before during October when it wasn't as busy and we really enjoyed ourselves. This time we stayed in June during the school holiday and it was jammed pack. The washrooms/toilets were maintained and clean to a good standard but the rubbish collection point went beyond a joke. It was piled so high bags and boxes just kep slipping off and falling in to the pathway. I couldn't access the Elson and waste water points without clearing loads of rubbish out of the way. Staff didn't do anything to manage this and it really was awful.

In addition, pitch 10 is next to the mains waste and ommitted disgusting smells 24/7 and many of the pitches, particularly for tents, aren't level. In the caravan we had to lower the front end of the van and chock the back legs. We also saw vans chocked at the front and low at the back.

Overall, we would go back during quieter periods but will definitely be staying away during any main holidays or events. We just don't feel the facilities and staff can manage when it's full.

The site is ideally located for great cycling and walking and the Seven Stars and Thatch pubs are nice.
