“2nd visit - Safari Tent - take a heater and a lamp!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

I have reviewed this site before when we stayed here camping so wont go into detail. This time we stayed for the weekend in a luxury safari tent at the start of October.

The only issues we had was about heating and lighting. We got the woodburner going but it didnt kick out enough heat so I advise if going out of the warm seasons take a heater. There is one light (in the kitchen/lounge area) so if you want to get undressed for bed easily or if yiu have young children who wont sleep at night in the dark take a lamp.

Just back from a fabulous weekend camping at Crealy and we LOVED it! We stayed in our own caravan and have 3 children aged 4, 2 and 7 months and Crealy made camping with small kids a doddle! The family bathrooms with baths are beautiful! Underfloor heating, toddler loos and changing tables all in the same room. Loads of space to run around, great parks, a theme park on your doorstep with fantastic soft play and parks and rides!!! Great evening entertainment surrounded by softplay to keep the kids entertained upto 11pm! We cannot wait to go back again next year and were all gutted to have to pack up today and go home :0(

This is a fantastic camping and caravanning site. Watch out for a lot of fantastics in this review!
Fantastic Staff
Fantastic Pitches (we stayed on the touring area)
Fantastic pitch again with water at each point
fantastically peaceful at night
Fantastic Facilities

We have been twice now and will come back more as the standard of the whole site is amazing.
There are 2 great shower blocks with the most amazing family bathrooms I have ever seen complete with actual baths and showers and lovely and warm.

Great pitches for tourers with water and electric at each pitch.
The site is well positioned and not far at all to walk to the (last one) fantastic theme park.

many thanks for a great stay

Me and my family stayed last week at the beautiful new campsite, originally we were meant to stay in May but we had our holiday cancelled because it was not ready to open, however we decided to transfer our holiday to September as the kids were gutted that we couldn't go!
When we got there, we knew we made the right choice, what a lovely, new, funky and fun campsite!!!
We were only on a 'super pitch' but were lucky to look at the african and medieval tents and they were amazing!!! definitely booking one for next year!
The staff were really helpful, and thanks to Dan for making us laugh and being great fun all week!!! But all the staff were amazing :)
See you in 2013!!!

Our family of three stayed in a medievil pavillion for four night 18-21 Sept. The tent iself was well stocked with everything you might need for a self catering stay including a lovely wood burning stove which kept us warm as well as cooking our food. Electric sockets in every "room" ensured that we could keep our three year old entertained in the evening with dvd's.
We went off peak which was considerably cheaper. Other reviewers have bemoaned the lack of evening entertainment but it was stated online when we booked that the eateries and entertainment would not be available so we did prepare for this. Our tent was close to the toilet/shower block which was clean and checked regularly. The underfloor heating in them was a bonus on cold mornings! The family bathroom was a nice touch as we could all get ready together. A play park was also close by.
Wood and camping supplies were available in the shop at reception, it was staffed by a very friendly Matt who also ensured we received instruction on the wood stove. Swipe cards were supplied to get us into the park which meant that there was no need to walk up to the main park entrance.
Going off peak meant that the park was fairly quiet, the rides we avoided on our summer daytrip were easy to get on. Early mornings were taken care of by the Pony Experience, just a walk with your allocated pony for an hour in the morning followed by grooming so not a bind at all. Our daughter really enjoyed this and couldn't wait to tell all her friends on our return.
Overall we thought the tent was awesome, the facilities modern and well maintained and the staff really friendly. The park itself wouldnt really be suitable for children over ten but as ours is only three we have a few years yet! Having said that the campsite is an excellent base for local attractions, or even not so local (we did a daytrip to Longleat) We would definately book again.

Room Tip: We stayed in "The Yeoman" which was close to the facilites, however in peak season I imagi...

Stayed in a Safari Tent over the weekend with our family and it was great, the kids loved it. Lovely showers and toilet areas, with the added bonus of family bathrooms. All the facilities were always immaculate and we want to say a big thanks to Allan & Marcia the Wardens who seem to be constantly keeping everything up to 5* standard and was very approachable and friendly.

We would also like to thank Matt who was very helpful and friendly to us upon our arrival and throughout our stay, he must of got fed up with us asking questions all the time but he certainly did not show it.

All in all it was a great stay with helpful staff as mentioned above. The kids loved the Adventure Park and came back shattered, they certainly slept well at night, which gave us some peace and quiet and time to ourselves. Although it would have been nice for other parents to keep more control over their children, ie running in and out of the showers and toilet areas. It was also great that the adventure park tickets were included in the price, if not it would have worked out to be a very expensive holiday.

We would loved to have seen a swimming pool as we feel this would just add to the pleasure and somewhere onsite to get something to eat if we don't feel like cooking - maybe next year? Also it would have been nice to have a BBQ area outside of the tent as we brought the small portable ones but there was really nowhere to put them, we either had the grass or the decking so in the end we turned a bucket upside down and put them on that.

We would definitely go back to Crealy, again a big thank you to Matt, Allan & Marcia and hope they make some small improvements for next year.
