First night on the WHW and we arrive late at this campsite with our backpacks and tent. Only one other tent on the site but we still couldn't see a level pitch. We did see in the long grass however, a large dog turd. At this point, if there had been an alternative we would have gone.
We had sole use of the facilities except for one young German hiker who had the other tent and his parents (bag carrying service) staying in a motor home on the other side of the barn so it was alright.
Facilities in a nutshell
Sloping pitches in a small area fenced off from the cattle field.
Some wooden 'wigwams' that looked they needed a serious dose of TLC
A covered small barn area with picnic tables, sink, kettle and electric socket.
Portacabin toilets and showers. The heaters in the showers weren't working but the showers were good.
We struck camp in the morning and went back 50yards down the road to pay at the farmhouse, he hadn't even realised we were there! That was a tenner we could have saved but, maybe a tenner he'll put towards mowing the grass! There is now an alternative to this, it's two mile or so earlier on the WHW. We will try that if we go again.
