We planned to stay at the site for a 4 night break (2 as a family, then 2 as me & kids). When we arrived it was chaotic with us having to wait for at least 20 minutes to being shown a pitch. There was an issue with car parking. The site was quite expensive when you consider the lack of facilities, although we were expecting that. The shower block was inadequate for the number of people and 50p per shower was a bit cheeky considering how much it was to stay. The kids enjoyed the pond and adventure playground although it was a bit rough and ready, which was fine with us but may not be for other parents. The campfires were great. However 2 nights in after a very wet night we woke up to the sound of running water and came out of the tent to a fast flowing river running past our tent that wasn't there when we went to bed, making us stranded on an island we had to wade through, thank goodness for wellies. It was mother nature at her best. As this was the start of my 2 nights with the kids and it was quite dangerous & everything was soaked I decided to go home early. Other campers were helped to move to safer pitches by the wardens. No ones fault but a bit of a disaster!
