I found this to be a very noisy site but mostly the noise is from children laughing, screaming and shouting with delight so if you have kids it's probably ideal but if not I'd suggest visiting outside school holidays. As we didn't have kids with us I felt this was really not the site for us.
I prefer my holidays to be be peaceful and this certainly wasn't! This was exasperated by the fact that the there was a group of 3 families next to us, including 8 children and yet there is a notice at the entrance saying that they don't accept group bookings! I can only assume that they mean they don't accept groups of single people and yet these families were probably noisier than single people with the adults sitting outside until late at night.
The surroundings are beautiful with lovely walks straight from the site but again the area by the river is noisy. The site allows campfires and this adds a nice touch. Reception sells a nice selection of ice cream!
The owner admits that the current facilities are inadequate and there is a notice showing the plans for a new facilities block but if they know there aren't enough facilities why take so many bookings? I find this to be very greedy.
Currently there are only 2 washbasins in the ladies toilet block and frequently I found there was nowhere to wash my hands because these basins were being used by those cleaning their teeth. I also found it tedious to have to queue for a washing up sink and 1 morning I queued 40 mins for a shower. However, they do state the new facilities will be available in 2012.
I probably won't return!
