I stayed here on night 4 of my 12 day coast to coast. After having read the reviews on here I was looking forward to camping . Unfortunately, I felt like the owners didn't share my enthusiasm. As soon as I arrived and said I was camping I seemed to be disregarded, almost hidden out of the way at the back as an outdoor leper. We were told we were staying on 'hallow ground', as they had recently laid the turf, but it was too late, we weren't moving!
It had been a long day and I was starving, but was told everywhere was shut to eat, but that the owner would make a 'speciality' beans on toast for £4, erm no thanks. I asked when the bar was open, "soon", I was told but it was already 8:30pm! Then, as if by magic, 'the bar' opened, well it was the owner behind a worktop. To be fair he did have an ale on draught, great, "What time do you shut?" I asked, "When I get tired" he replied, which turned out to be 30 mins later.
I had asked for the WiFi password, which I was given, and then it was promptly switched off!
He never actually went to bed, he sat with his friends making us feel uncomfortable. OK, I took the hint and went back to my field. It was a poor nights sleep as we seemed to be under a railway (not mentioned on website). Chickens roaming the field were not a problem, but I thought the amount of chicken s#&t in the shower/toilet area was unacceptable.
The icing on the cake was when a bleary eyed owner came out to see us the next morning to tell us how much he had drunk the night before.
I appreciate it is quite a different review from everybody who stayed inside the building, but my tip would be if you want to stay here, make sure you book into the B&B - it is NOT a camper friendly establishment.
