Back to basics camping for a group of 13 aged 8 - 65. Stunning views!! Worth the long journey. We stationed ourselves a few metres from a drinking water tap and a couple of minutes walk of a toilet facility with a single cubicle for ladies and 2 cubicles for men + 2 urinals. We found it strange though why there was only 1 cubicle for ladies. There are also portaloos around but expect to either get shocked or give a sigh of relief at the state of these festival type loos. Toilet rolls supplied with almost always empty hand sanitisers. Shower blocks are reasonably clean and basic, 10 cubicles for men and 10 for ladies. No temperature control so shower might be too hot for some. Peak season will be chaotic so choose the best time to have a shower as 30 minutes wait is typical average. The estuary was accessible throughout our stay in the last week of August. Staff we met were all friendly and nice. The cleanliness of the shower and toilet facilities are actually not down to staff but the campers. Majority of the campers are decent, but sadly a minority behave like animals and degrade these facilities. They have probably forgotten children also use these facilities.
- best to bring your own toilet rolls and hard surface wipes for the toilet seats (throw the hard surface wipes in the bin). Extremely useful if you are using the portaloos.
- if you happen to be in the crabbing area, keep an eye for the local fishermen from 1:30pm. We bought large fat crabs for £1.50 each and lobsters for £7 each. The next day, we were lucky as the fishermen were a bit generous and gave us 9 large crabs for £5. No doubt, we were "cholesterolised".
