“What a shambles”
Reviewed 20 August 2008

Booked a particular pitch but put on a diffrent one !!

Ground flooded but they still tried to put tents on it !!

Jammed campers in, if you could not get out on your departure day they made campers move..... tent or caravan you had to up heave everything !!

Pool FREEZING even though they said it was heated !!

Camp site that does not sell Gas or newspapers (and not a lot else either) !!

Club room VERY VERY small for size of site !!

Huge site and 2 toilet blocks.... people queing for toilet at 7am !!

Seems there are NO saftey rules here... they put you so close that if one had a fire a large amount of campers would be effected, I did not see 1 single fire point !!

All staff very young and not very helpful, I witnessed a number of angry unhappy campers !!

Just find an alternative site if you are going for more than a weekend !!
