We had a nice enough weekend at Masons. The site itself is decent with nice, flat pitches in the riverside field and very good facilities. The shop has a good range of stuff but is ridiculously overpriced - £2.50 for a very small bottle of ketchup anyone?
However the silly rules that are plastered everywhere spoil it, and asking for a £40 deposit 'which you can have back if you're not rowdy' is an insult. Why can't they do what other campsites do - if someone's disturbing other campers ask them to stop it or leave? Masons really need to chill out!
Oh, and there's a bad midge problem. I know there's probably not a great deal they can do, but bring some strong repellent. We're all still itching days later!
