From intial checking in we were impressed by the beauty next to the campsite, the village was nice nearby (brockenhurst) however staff seemed controlling, there was no on site shop, the toilet was not opened up by us until they got busier, a friend came to see us for an hour, they wouldnt let him in without paying a fiver!
The price advertised online booking was less than the price when I arrived. Then they stung me with a bank holiday special price? another £25???? didnt feel like we could relax most of the time.
They tell u the rules like your a child and not a customer . One rule was no tent closer than 6m to another yet on peak days we had people very close (less than a cars length)
I dont understand why this places has such good ratings.
