This was the second year we had spent a weekend at this site with several other families and kids between 6 and 16. The pitches are large with electric hook ups. You get a real feeling of being in a forest under the tall trees. The two shower blocks are both clean and have plenty of hot water, the new one just more spacious and with a free (not 50p) hair dryer (woo hoo!!!). The sea is down 50 wooden steps across a pebbly beach. Swimming was lovely although a bit sporting at high tide when the waves have a tendency to throw you over - young children take care.
A well stocked shop offers all the essentials including a daily paper (if you order the day before) and there is bike hire. (Check your bike before you go, some are in better condition than others)
The children's playground is modern and varied plus there's a games room with a pool table and done board games. Wifi in the bar is pretty good.
We were hoping to eat on the Sunday in the restaurant but were told it was a barbecue. I think it may have escaped the kitchen that campers tend to spend every night barbecuing and don't really feel like yet another burger when they choose to eat out. But we'd been at the campsite for two nights, eaten all the food, had no choice. It was awful. Cheap burger or cheap sausage. Nothing else. No salad, no vegetarian option ( complete surprise when this was requested although they did throw some leaves together for us). The only good thing was that they only charged us £2 each. This may be an easy option for the kitchen but it was a disappointment for us and was a low point in an otherwise brilliant weekend.
