We arrived at The Old Post Office Campsite on Saturday 24th May for 3 nights, as soon as we arrived we were greeted by the owner, who was very friendly and welcoming. He showed us our pitch and we set up.
The site is in a lovely location and the surroundings are just beautiful. I have noticed a few people commenting on the fact that it costs 50p for a shower, we found that it didn't matter as the showers were lovely! They are extremely clean and tidy and the water gets VERY hot, which was lovely when it was so cold outside!!!! We found the shower block to be VERY clean and warm! The owner did regular checks of the site, speaking to everyone! He made sure that the sink areas were clean and free of rubbish and dirt. The shower block was cleaned regularly too.
We took 2 dogs on our camping trip and the owners did not bat an eyelid, very dog friendly!
We had a lovely weekend at The Old Post Office Campsite and we would definitely return soon!
Our tent pitch was directly in front of the river, which was beautiful and peaceful! All in all we had a fantastic weekend :-)
