My friend makes use of this campsite and whilst being in the area, I thought I'd pay him a visit. As this campsite has no designated parking area, I used my initiative and tried to park out of the way of other vehicles.
After parking up safely I was just about to get out when the owner came charging over while flailing his arms about shouting at me in front of other site users to get off his grass and to 'use some common sense'. He very rudely and aggressively told me to go and park somewhere else. When I asked him where I was supposed to park because I would be blocking off other vehicles, he rudely pointed out to park on another site user's pitch. I did as commanded by a now very red faced and agitated owner hoping not to fall out with the person on whose pitch I just parked.
As a result of my very negative experience I have not been back to this site and am warning all my friends and hopefully now some more people via these means that you might be treated in a very bad way.
