We stayed 4 nights from 22 May - 26 May over the Bank Holiday weekend and a small party of 2. This is a lovely campsite in stunning surroundings and I had no issues with the shower/toilet facilities also very clean and water hot.
Like previously stated a few rules which is reason why we booked there. Quiet from 10.30pm if wanting to party this is not the site for you. Sadly this did not apply on our visit, well for our second night! We were down by the bottom field near the access to the steam train. Lovely pitch beautiful views. By friday fellow campers started to arrive on mass and a group started to pitch near to us but over the day more arrived must of been several + tents lost count of the no: in the group. Now these selfish narrow minded morons had no respect for the few rules especially the no noise after 10.30pm and having retired to our tent we were kept awake till after 2am.with them laughing singing drinking. They new this rule as they kepted joking 10.30pm bedtime! But they still decided to come to this site and ruin it for others. Eventually we got woken up at 5am to there dog Harry barking. Then they were awake morning everyone at 7am.
Now my disgruntledness is having spoken to the Owners/wardens having had enough and wanted to pack up and leave said they did patrol and heard nothing. This I strongly disagree with as myself and others around us had complaints about this group. I also dont understand why they let such a large group amass around lots of smaller tents especially people with small children. There website states intending drunks or those of a loud nature should look elsewhere & they have a zero tolerance policy if any of the rules are broken.
Now the owner and his wife Alison and the wardens especially Mike & Mikey all very lovely, they were very understanding and couldnt do enough for us and we were shown another pitch. They helped us move all our things and we re pitched up by the facilities in the small field. We then had a much quiter experience and were able to sleep!. We met some lovely people and we enjoyed the last two days of our holiday which those morons all most ruined for us.
Would I stay here again? Absolutely! It really is a lovely site I personally will avoid Bank Holidays in the future. Children will love the freeedom of fun this site can offer having them run all over and playing laughing was never an issue it was lovely to hear and see.
