Just returned from Dornafield - fantastic site, beautifully kept - the only downside was that my partner thought the chip van opened Monday to Friday when in fact it is open Monday and Friday - so no take away for us. The site is immaculate and toilet block the cleanest we have ever used - the only slight niggle was... More

The facilities were always spotless and the pitches spacious and very well kept. The children enjoyed riding their bikes and using the play areas, we even ventured onto... More

Dear Nathanj Many thanks for your kind review and so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at Dornafield. We have a lot of family’s who use our storage facilities and often they let other members of the family use the van which means more people can enjoy the park. The Quarry Kitchen cooks all food to order and during the... More

Only started caravanning this year and this is the 3rd site we have visited. The other two were Caravan club sites. Yes the shower block was fairly clean but always seemed to be bits of long hair everywhere, on walls and floor. We were on fully serviced pitch but when your neighbour empties their waste the smell is pretty bad.... More

We have just got back from a two week stay in Dornafield from 27th July - 9th Aug.

We are at Dornafield now and even the rain hasn't dampened our enthusiasm. We usually avoid larger campsites as you can tend to feel on top of everyone else. This place though has large pitches with green spaces in between so you feel you have your own space. It's lovely and quiet though everyone we meet is friendly and smiles.... More
