We arrived to find a group already on our pitch. They had 4 tents on "our" pitch and the adjoining one and their car partly parked on the pitch next door which we were left to take. The pitch had several dips making it difficult to pitch the tent. We had requested a large pitch as we were bringing a boat, which cost extra. Due to the weather forecast we left the boat at home which was just as well as I doubt we would have had room for it.
We came back at 10.30 shattered and looking forward to a good nights sleep. We ended up getting about 4 hours. There was music coming from all directions, people talking loudly until 1.30 am, next doors visitor going home at midnight and shining his headlights straight into our tent, a lady being sick and not bothering to go to the toilet block and a group of lads shouting loudly and jumping into the pool around midnight. The warden came at 1 a.m. To get them out of the pool but didn't ask anyone to turn their music down. I have never stayed on a site with so many inconsiderate people. It's just as well we were only booked for 1 night as there is no way I would ever go back.
