First ever camping trip to a formal campsite, This is a family run campsite, we had a kind welcome/reception, lovely location, campsite, babbling brook, pub, stone bridge, the campsite is pan handle shaped, we stayed in the handle end on the river side, probably best location is on the road side of the handle. The facilities include separate male and female ablusion blocks, that were spotlessly clean throughout the stay, and the site was fairly busy, and though small,2 lavatories and 2 showers per block. we never had to queue. I would highly recommend this location for a visit, by campers, caravan and campervaners.
