The camping field itself was pleasant enough, surrounded by trees. We didn’t use the facilities so can’t comment on those. The pitch we were allocated was quite sloping and we had difficulty using our stabilisers as they didn’t reach the ground. The pitch was poorly maintained and the grass on the pitch had clearly not been mown for some time. We were on pitch 16, which was directly opposite the road up to the toilets and we had a constant stream of people from the camping field walking across the pitch to reach the toilets, not exactly relaxing. The site was noisy during our stay, children playing on the park, screaming and shouting at 11 pm. There was noise and loud music playing from the camping field until around 1am and again people walking across our pitch talking loudly until 3 am, so it was not the peaceful break we had expected. There was no sign of any staff to manage the advertised ‘quiet time’. The site is advertised as being in 11 acres of woodland, but these were fenced off from the site and not easily accessible. Dogs are welcome, however there is no designated dog walk where dogs can be let off lead, so other guests dogs were let off lead to wander around. The advertised WiFi also seemed inaccessible.

The rubbish bins were full and no recycling facilities were obvious.

A motorhome service point would have been useful and I’m sure there is space to accommodate this close to the entrance.

There was a ‘burger van’ open morning and evening, we didn’t use it so can’t comment, but nice touch.

It’s a shame my review is negative, because with a bit better thought to the layout and more adherence to their own policies it could be a nice site, but sorry it’s not for us and we wouldn’t stay again.
