“Never again - Needs to be closed down”
Reviewed 31 July 2009

Pitches all too close together for safety. Shower block very dirty, only saw cleaners twice in the first week but daily in the second week. Four of Six toilets were out of order for 3 days and when it is an expensive site this should not have being the case.
Booked due to free wifi but could not get it from our pitch despite requesting this.
Swimming pool cold and dirty

Well stocked shop according to the brochure - not so no papers, washing up liquid or gas.

Very well marketed but could not live up to its promises - needs to be closed by EHO or health and safety, cleaned up and re marketed and re opened as a good location. No sign of management just left kids to deal with the problems.

Reviewed 25 June 2009

It was dirty, noisy and tents were packed in to the point that guy ropes were on top of eachother. It really spoilt our two week holiday. Most of the people around us had been before and wouldn't return again. The facilities were hosed not cleaned, no toilet roll, bins were over flowing and the site was just not looked after. It was not the cheapest campsite so you would expect more. The swimming pool (a definate attraction for us) was freezing. My two year old had just been potty trained and did not want to go to the toilet there!! Such a shame as we loved the location.

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 !!
