Stayed 5 nights here after turning up on a whim due to not getting a pitch at Hillend Campsite, very scenic location by the water and beach, we pitched our tent in the furthest away field (much quieter location as we were a couple). Didn't have any problems with the staff, young girl on reception very polite and attentive, great shop selling most things but no freezer block facility (bags of ice worked fine instead).
What REALLY lets this campsite down is the disgusting toilet and shower blocks, they are some of the worst I have seen and for the cost of £22 pn for the pitch, I would expect something much better. They were filthy, choice of materials/tiles used did not help. I DIDN'T see these toilets or showers been cleaned once in the whole time i was there. Infact I brushed my teeth with a bottle of water next to the tent most mornings as the smell and foulness of the facilities really got to me. I avoided having showers/washes just because the facilities were so bad ... i lived off facial wipes for my face and body!
The facilities were not hygienic in the slightest, sanitary bins were kept up on a shelf behind the toilet so you couldn't have reached them if needed, door locks were broken on both toilets and showers, hairs and bodily fluids everywhere, one day I went in and the toilets were all blocked and full of bodily excrement just left there and smelling whilst people were showering next door ...... the people that did use the facilities ..... hats off to you as I don't know how you did it!
Plus if you oitch your tent in the far field, it is fairly long walk in the middle of the night if you need the loo! All the facilities are down one side of the campsite and not evenly spread out.
Sorry, not for me, won't be returning.
On the plus side, try the restaurant in the village called The Smugglers Haunt, attentive and friendly service, great food washed down with a super bottle of Prosecco!
