Smell from the septic tank next to our van was very unpleasant. When we arrived the manager informed us that the septic tank near our pitch was due to be emptied that day. We arrived on Thursday and by Friday it still hadn't been emptied and a site worker had started sealing the lids to the septic tank with expanding foam in order as he said to solve the problem, which it didn't. I asked the manager again when the tank was due to be emptied particularly as the site was going to be full at the weekend, His answer was " Hopefully today" to which replied " Could you not chase them up?" to which the response was non-committal. By Friday evening the site was extremely full with people pitching their tents with no involvement from the management. On the plus side there were good play facilities for the children and the lodge was good. A family birthday celebration was spoilt by the smell which was commented upon by fellow campers.
