A fantastic camping trip with a group of friends. Cannot fault the staff who couldn't do enough to assist. A nice small campsite with clean, modern facilities all compact with the added bonus of a heated outdoor swimming pool & a small club house & games room. Perfect for us and friends with 14 children between us. I much preferred... More

We have stayed at Thriftwood 4 times in our camper van and always enjoyed it. It is a safe campsite to let the kids explore on their own and the play park and heated swimming pool are a bonus. It also has really good hot showers and clean facilities.

We've been here 5 or 6 times now, sometimes just as our family and even once with 7 families!! Its great that the kids can do old fashion playing in the woods and make camps and bashers. The showers are always hot and clean. The camping area is hard and you need rock pegs but its on a quiet edge... More

It's the cleanest and friendliest site I have ever been on. The outside pool was amazing and the shower/ toilet block was... More

After being impressed by a slick website, we were initially disappointed by the area for tents in this park that is dominated by caravans and statics on the flatter areas of the site. The area for tents is around the edge of the site, where the ground slopes off at more of an angle than is normally comfortable. Otherwise, the... More

This is our second stay at this campsite and we have already booked to come back. This time we came with 3 families, and the staff were so accommodating in fitting us in with two very large tents. The shower facilities are great, modern and very clean. We had a lovely area in the oak field near the lovely children's... More
