The site looked ideal on the website, 'small, family & dog friendly...' ha!
The site is very small (too small) with too many pitches sqeezed in & too close together. It was very muddy, facilities very basic. Washing machine which didn't clean clothes for £2.50.
Lights kept shorting out in wash up area.
All pretty minor, but it was the attitude of the owner (mr grumpy) that spoiled it for us- our children were playing happily & nicely in the PLAY area & mr grumpy told them not to play with their toy guns. The play area is nxt to the static vans on this cramped site & the owner seems to be more concerned about the static vans than allowing children to be children. The children were also confined as to where they could cycle & were also told not to go up to the play area at one point. So much for the children having fun and if the children aren't happy....
Mr grumpy's approach was inconsistent however as he did not intervene when noisy teenagers were houling & shrieking after 9pm.
The dog walking area is up a rocky stream bed- not good in the wet.
There are much nicer sites in the area, I would strongly recommend that you check them out. A brand new one (dog friendly, but no kids) has opened virtually next door- looked lovely- Bracken wood/ bracken farm??
We were pleased to leave the site.
