We went camping on the June bank holiday weekend. The weather was appalling, it didn't stop raining for more than 5 mins the whole time we were there. We had intended staying two nights, but it turns out that even the best tents have limits to how waterproof they are. That said, we were one of the last tents to leave.
The site shop is fantastic. They have a really good range of camping products as well as some foodstuffs. This was one of the reasons we picked this site.
The camping site is essentially a big and in places uneven field, but it is possible to pitch on level ground.
The toilet blocks are basic, but they are clean. I've been on sites with more facilities, but they were not as clean, and I'd go for clean as top priority every time, particularly when you have kids with you.
This camp site is all about the beach when it comes to children. Silver strand is a small private and sandy cove and there is access directly from the site. The access is via steps and they are very steep. If you have young children you will need to hold their hands going up and down, so don't plan on bringing everything but the tent down to the beach for the day.
In our case we didn't get any dry time to enjoy the beach, but it would be good in good weather.
There are no playground facilities for children, so make sure you bring your own entertainment for kids. Also absent were any indoor playing facilities that you find on many sites.
Wolohans Silver Strand is a basic campsite, with private beach access and a great shop. It is well run and clean.
While I do think that it could be made into an amazing site with a little investment (hedging for windbreak and privacy between pitches, playground facilities for children and a wetsuit washing area would be good), I can't fault it on what it provides at present.
We will be going back there, hopefully with better weather next time.
I gave sleep quality an excellent, but this was with rain so heavy that you couldn't hear anythi...
