We were walking the Ridgeway a couple of weeks ago. The weather was getting pretty stormy and night was fast approaching so we were relieved to find ourselves close to the Courthill Centre. We rang to check it would be ok to stay and were surprised to find that they were not able to accommodate a tiny backpackers tent because they had a school group in. This was on a weekday evening. All the other campsites we'd stayed in were practically empty, even at weekends with the terrible June weather we've had this year.
Luckily a kind person let us camp in their sheltered garden and even let us use their outdoor loo.
Apologies if it is unfair reviewing somewhere you haven't actually stayed as poor - it may be lovely but it maybe useful for other walkers to know our experience. Check for school groups first!
