Two day stay in a tent. Site is very well maintained - toilets/showers are modern, very clean and regularly checked. Excellent pitch marking, signage, fire points etc. Not stony & very level - easy to get the tent pegs in and out!!! Quite expensive but then the facilities are good. Number plate recognition for access. Easy short walk into town.
The site continues to be developed - especially near the toilet block with a new building being constructed so you may be unlucky and be close to this. New specimen trees have been planted between a large number of pitches - this will look great as they begin to mature. Clearly a lot of money is being spent on facilities and landscaping. Pitches tend to be in pairs (sometimes fours), often with just a low post and rail fence between pairs so not particularly private if this is important to you.
The east side of the site is very close to the railway - which may be a problem for people with young children - or who like early bed times! When we visited there were overnight rail works - including new ballast being laid and being compacted (literally shook the ground!). Full marks to the owners of the site for emailing visitors in advance to warn them of this - and for getting Network Rail to provide free breakfast in compensation!!!
Can't comment on bar and shop as we didn't use them!
