We visited in a party of 4 adults and 4 children aged 3 months to 5 years. The site is in a great location and the steam train is great. However,the site was very expensive and not value for money. After paying £25 per night for 2 adults and 2 children in 1 tent, I did not expect to pay for showers. The showers run on 50p coins but a shower needed 2-3 coins adding extra cost to the stay. There are only 4 showers in the ladies, insufficient so always a queue. The stalls are too small and nowhere for a child to sit. There are also not enough toilets so there was a queue at busy times. There is a lot of staff, leaving us feel watched but we did not find the ever present staff helpful. We were overcharged by nearly £50 on arrival and then felt under scrutiny when we went back with receipts to discuss this. We did get the money back but it was not a comfortable situation. After unpacking our car, we were asked to move it to a field a few minutes walk away. I explained how inconvenient this was having a 3 month old and 2 year old and some stuff, including the buggy stored in the car. This was not well received and I was given a lecture on the needs of the new campers arriving. Unfortunately, despite the site being picturesque, we would not recommend this site.
