This site is lovely and in a very pretty location next to the river. It is well kept and the toilets and showers were very clean. Gareth who manages the site and his dog George were very friendly and welcoming. (Thanks to Gareth's sister and her 2 friends who were visiting for the weekend for keeping me company on Sat night) The only critiscm was the hairdryer in the ladies which was neither use or ornament, and there was nowhere to plug in your own. However it wouldn't put me off staying there again.
We can definately recommend The Woodlands tea room which is about a 5 min walk from the site - the cakes there are delicious!
