Fab site, family friendly. My young son has had so much fun at Cofton. We would recommend Cofton to everyone. Very clean site with kind helpful and friendly staff. Cant wait to come back in the summer.

Arrived home last Saturday from our first visit to Cofton for this year. As usual we were warmly welcomed by all in reception and our' off the main site' cottage was beautifully clean and inviting. Everything we needed was there and the beds are really comfy. Due to having an injury to my foot we were unable to attend any of the Country and Western events that took place during the evenings and some afternoons which we could have attended for free. I made use of the indoor Ashburn Springs pool which is fantastic and has cushioned flooring in the pool which was just right for my tender feet and the changing rooms are of various sizes to accommodate more than one family member with ease as required. In all we had a wonderful relaxing time and looking forward to our next holiday there in a few weeks time.

Had a super pitch with all facilities which were very good. Problem we had was a large group of people the other side of the hedge behind the caravan. Every night we had loud music which we could hear with all windows and doors shut. I don't mind people having a great time but sound travels especially if you are in a tent.I now know all the words to the music from Bronsky Beat and Tom Jones.It's a great site but I would not pay the extortionate prices they charge for pitches at peak season.It's such a shame that these prices reflect when kids are off school.Our kids are grown up but I feel sorry for the families having to pay so much.Also for the prices charged I think the electric hookup should be 16 amps not 10.Modern Caravans use a lot more electric and its a pain turning this off so that can be turned on.Staff in reception were lovely and helpful. We will come back but only off peak times when it is a lot quieter.

Spotlesssly clean and the most polite staff I've ever come across.
We stayed here for three nights from May 16th 2014 in our touting caravan. We are a 65 year young couple. I honestly could not fault it. It was quite busy, but very quiet in the evenings, no noisy campers.
Toilet / shower blocks were modern and spotless. Pitches good size, flat and very tidy.
New entertainments block - very nice, but a bit pricey ( pint and a medium wine £7.50!). Did not eat in so can't comment on that.
Shop was quite comprehensive.
Very polite, well mannered staff.
Had a great time and will definitely be going back very soon.

We stayed her for 2 nights over the weekend. The site was very busy. On Sunday due to the great weather we decided to stay on to make the most of the day and asked at Reception how much extra it would cost to stay on site, using the facilities until about 4pm. Normal check out is 11 am.

I was very pleasantly surprised to be told that we were welcome to stay, without additional payment, as long as we were off site by 6pm. From Whitsun week onwards, obviously there would be additional charges but as this was not classed as their busy season, there would be no charge.

So hats off to this site for what I consider to be a generous arrangement. The staff were friendly and professional. On large sites like Cofton it's easy to think you are just a source of revenue to the company so it was good to experience decent customer service - and it makes you want to return.
