“Nice Basic Campsite”
Reviewed 26 June 2013

Stayed here for 2 nights with the family during June and camped in our tent on one of their large pitches. Nice site, albeit a bit sparce on trees and hedges. Showering and toilet facilities very clean but the only thing that baffles me is that you have to pay for a shower. This is included in the overnight rate on the continent and it seemed a little petty to have to pay for a shower. All in all a decent spot, and I would return.

We stayed in this park june bank holiday. It was our first time to stay here. It was spotlessly clean, whole campsite, toilets, showers. Kids loved it as they met lots of new friends. We were in the campsite with the playground one minute away from our caravan(big plus), chestnutt have another site across the road so make sure you pick the right one. Most of the other people on the site seem to stay there all summer so they all know each other so you can feel like a real outsider. Beach is 5 min walk and its blue flag. Only thing that would stop me from going back is that it needs a good shop, you have to drive to kilteel or back into Rostrevor. Yes we would go back again to this campsite and would definitely recommend it.

Staff are extremely rude, unprofessional and unhelpful in everyway! I was recently turned down from staying on the campsite with a group of friends on the morning we were due to arrive because it was the companies 'policy' not to allow groups of young people (we are all 18) to stay incase they made noise near a family. This is a classic case of tarring everyone with the one brush as older people are just as likely to make noise as younger people. The company were unable to give an exact definition of their policy towards the age of guests and became aggressive on the phone before hanging up. As we all live locally we often would spend summers out at Cranfield using the shop and restaurant facilities however I can say after this we will not be there again!

Really disappointed with how the site is managed. From being hung up on twice by the owner and being spoke to like I was a second class citizen. Not happy with their customer service. We use our caravan every weekend and spend money in the shop and cafe and that's the thanks you get. Disappointing!!!

Stayed here in September and have to say that their pitches are fantastic, all weather with all facilities at each pitch. Set up is very clean and staff friendly. Very close to beach also.

Will definately go back and have already recommended it to others.

We stayed here for a week in august and i have to say it was a great campsite.There was free entertainment for the kids each day such as arts and crafts or hip hop etc. the staff on site were very friendly and very helpful.The shower facilities were excellent plenty of hot water and spotlessly clean.The playground and football field were also well maintained. This site is well worth its five star rating
