I stayed at the campsite from Monday to Friday in the last week of July, and got an impression of the campsite with different numbers of people. I camped with two families who created the points below, with these views shared by all of them.
-Beautiful views, rolling hills, stunning sunsets, and grazing sheep
-Very clean when campers are few
-The site is decorated with lovely statues
-Large area of open land good for playing and eating on
-Separated from caravan area
-Has a lovely cafe/restaurant
-Near to local attractions like "Devil's bridge"
-The weather was lovely and sunny almost constantly during our holiday
-Looks better than it does on the website
-The toilets are not particularly clean in the peak times (Friday/weekend)
-The shower and toilet block is a portacabin, which does reduce the washing facility quality a little; they also struggle to facilitate the amount of people who come in peak times (a new shower block is being built for August 2014, with better washing facilities-it looks great even in construction-)
-The play area only consists of a climbing frame and slide (the children still really enjoyed the holiday however, and this equipment was great for them to use)
-The campsite rules were not enforced during peak times (i.e people were making loud noises at 12:30 at night when the campsite asks for people to make little noise after 10:30)
-There are swarms of biting midges- this can be made less prominent by lighting a disposable BBQ, or by using lots of midge repellent
-The sheep can be very loud at night, but do not seriously prevent sleep
Overall however, it was certainly one of the best sites for all ages and group sizes I've been to. The site itself was lovely for the most part, and the local attractions ( "Devils bridge", a waterfall, steam train, and the local seaside towns) were wonderful for all the family.
