Opted for a camping pod for 2 adults and 2 children, which was advertised to sleep 2 adults and 3 children, however, not sure where the 3rd would sleep as it was cosy enough with the 4 of us!!
The park itself is lovely, however, the seasonal tourers do take over slightly and spoil the traditional camping feel but I think it was designed originally for lodges, statics and then they've added the seasonals and tourers/tents to increase revenue.
The park is about 1.5 miles from the main entrance where two pubs are located. Beehive and Crown (not that nice) but the site does have a pub itself called Squirrel. The food here is typical pub grub, which was average and the lager was poor but ok for a last stop off of an evening if you'd been out.
Shop was well stocked, toilets clean and tidy with great choices if cubicles, baths, showers and family cubicles.
A great weekend had by all but well probably book somewhere else a little closer to amenities.
