Although there was a new wash block, the showers in these were terrible, the water pressure was very poor and they sprayed out so wide that to get my hair and that of my young daughter washed we had to soak a flannel and squeeze it over our heads. The showers in the old wash block only stayed on for 4 seconds making showering with young children very difficult. Although you had family bathrooms for hire, none of these were available as when I asked to hire one I was told that people had hired them up to a year in advance for the duration of their stay of either 48 or 72 hours. Who needs a bathroom continuously for 72 hours??!!. I know that you can hire the bathrooms for 45 minutes and while hiring them out for up to 72 hours may make money for the campsite, it makes life very difficult and adds stress to a holiday when you are not able to use these facilities especially as shower time with young children is not an easy task at the best of times. Maybe it would be more helpful to customers if these were hired out on a first come first served basis each morning for 45 mins at a time rather than allowing people to book them for such along time so far in advance. We were situated in the top field and while we arrived early and found a reasonably unsloped part of the field, for those who arrived later were pitching on a steeper angle, not easy for cooking. I’m not sure this field is really that suitable for tents. However the bottom field which was flat was very noisy so I’m glad we were in the top field as it was much more peaceful.. overall if the washing facilities situation was addressed then I would possibly come back. However I couldn’t fault the staff they were lovely and helpful.
