I was apprehensive on arrival as i had read very poor reviews of the site but i found the wardens very helpful and accommodating when we arrived. The site was set in beautiful scenery and the 'ratty' train which stops at the site was fab and my children really enjoyed it. The playground was ok but i felt there wasnt much for younger children and it very much catered for age 7 and above. My problems with the site would be that the shower/toilet block was far too small for the site and could sometimes be very busy and packed with kids, the floor of the showers was also awash with water alot but too the sites credit the toilets/showers were cleaned regularly. The 50p for the showers to me was a rip off, i dont think ive ever had to pay for showers at a campsite except maybe in the early 1990's in France! plus they didnt last long at all! i also thought for the price of the site per night it was abit of a cheek! We were put on a pitch near the toilets by the road(which is not busy) and rocks which was fab as it was away from everyone else, if i had been put on the main field i wouldnt have been so happy as it was packed with tents close together. Overall i wouldnt return as i did feel a little uneasy at times which is a shame, also on our 4th day both mine and my husbands phones had run out of battery and we really needed to ring friends who were joining us, when we asked if we could plug it in at the office for 10mins we were given a firm no! ive never had this on a site before, bit mean really but what do you expect from a site charging 50p a shower!
