Quirky place...

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Feb 2019via mobile
We booked this place for our last night as it's less than an hour from the drop off. It's in the back and beyond and there's not much in the village, (even worse that the restaurant is closed Mon and Tue but there is a chippy).
The owners were welcoming and the guy drew us an elaborate map to site 20 when all he had to really do was point out of the front door really, it was just a few rows away but what a palarva with a big motorhome to spot the right place, they're not obviously marked. This is where the real fun began. The site is quite bizarre and filled with ancient caravans that have been stuck onto cabins. Even the two touring caravans in front of us were old Oxfords from the early 70's. As we reversed in the old bird from one of the vans rushed out squawking that we were about to reverse over her satellite dish. She did this every time we moved. It has a pool but it looked a bit dated. The whole site is spotless and in a lovely area but I felt like I'd time travelled back into the 1970s and was expecting Sid James to run past chasing Barbara Windsor at any moment! Worth a visit just for a gander at all the bizarre statics.

Second time back and loved it as much as the first. Really clean facilities - those cleaning ninjas you never seem to see but keep the bathrooms and kitchen spotless. Kids loved the kayaks, big kids loved the karts, mums loved the couches by the pool when supervising our swimmers. So much to do at this spot - a must stay place.

Last stop of touring holiday and before returning our campervan. A fair way off the main route but nice quiet area with good flat pitch to finish off our holiday. The owners were so friendly and are looking to continually to upgrade. We were pleased to find that they were happy for us to leave any unused goodies for other visitors to make use of which is better than having to throw them away. We only used the bathroom facilities and they were fine. There was a restaurant within walking distant but you may need a torch as it was pretty dark on the return walk. A nice site for our last night.

If you are looking for a park that is away from the crowds, this one is for you. A close stroll to a lovely park and water front. We read reviews where others were negative about up keep here but what they did not know is the owners have only had it a short time and are improving things daily. Even tho some things need updating, it is really clean, peaceful and friendly. Good WIFI too.

Thank you, it is a massive job to bring the camp up to a better standard. It is happening but it won't happen overnight.

Last minute decision to go camping and managed to get a double site to share with friends. Powered sites were a great size, very level/flat and loved the hedges between sites. Facilities were a little tired but it seems as owners maybe doing these up - they were however immaculate and cleaned regularly. Games room was popular with the kids and a good size compared to some we have seen. Pool was great to have but bit cold for us adults to try swimming. Kids enjoyed hiring the carts. Staff were really friendly and helpful. The campsite was neat to explore and looked like lots of options for people to stay in. Husbands and kids had a ball with the golf course so close. Fishing was fun all though not that successful for us that day ha ha ha. Too cold to swim but can imagine in summer the beach would be amazing, lots of games of vortex and soccer at the field across from the camp. Loved the way the camp was quiet enough to settle kids at night with the 10pm rule. Heard the odd planes but have lived far closer to and airport than that so did not think they were an issue at all as noted by some. Fish and chips up the road were divine, shops a few minutes away for a few more supplies. Definitely a place to go back to in the future and look forward to seeing what the owners do to it each year. Maybe ice creams to buy at the camp office would be lovely - thanks for having us :)

Thanks for your review. Glad you all had a nice time. We are going to be taking on board all suggestions. It may take a few years to do all of them. But we aim to focus on cleanliness and friendliness in the mean time. We are trying to warm the pool with the black pipes on the roof and the pool cover.
