We recently have come back from a week at Ninham, with other family members, firstly the good- pitches were large enough for our big Vermont, and site is very well looked after, showers were old but clean and very hot which leads me to the bad. Showers were at times unbearably hot and my young children were very reluctant to use them after their first one. We were pitched next to the road and it did get noisy a couple of times at night, as there are no time restrictions. Also, although it says private road there are no security gates into the campsite, unless they rely on the man on the scooter! I have to point out, we were with family that took dogs so we were on Willow Brook behind the arrivals area, and it was very quiet and we never had to wait for the showers or washing up facility. We were told that the site had a play area but sadly this was closed as was another toilet block close by. The children were told off a couple of times by the chap on a scooter, for flying a kite and playing football in the arrivals area, despite it clearly showing this area as a Ball games area. You could argue about the kite flying as we were directly under the flight path for the close by small airport, flying small aircraft, but I think it was unnecessary as the kites were literally flying just above the hedge line. The games room was very outdated but spacious and a couple of chairs for parents to sit, the pool was a hit and enjoyed by all. Wifi is not included and quite expensive. Tried the launderette on site and washing came out clean, which compared to other sites this was brilliant. There is fishing on site, but excessive in asking for £5 per rod used, when most sites provide this for free.
Found some staff very helpful however and although this site was not for us, would be a nice find for couples who like a strict run site without dogs and children.
