Stayed in the campsite for 5 nights as a couple and it is a good location. We hadn't really camped before so was not prepared for the noise. The first three nights was spent listening to a group of duke of ed teenagers talking and laughing until late on and the last 2 nights was spent with young boys playing football to all hours and hitting our tent as we tried to sleep.
As a couple in our 40's we didn't really take in to account what may go on in the campsite.
We were in site 3/4 and we did notice that the sites up the hill from the toilets may have been the best location to camp as you had only a small space and not room for many tents.
The site is in a good location for cycling, walking and exploring the area and the toilet and shower facilities are very good. We had a bbq a couple of nights and this is good that you allowed to do this.
The weather was good but the only problem with this is the midges was eating us alive. We had repellent but it didn't seem to work. Alot of trees around so i think this is something to consider when choosing a campsite at this time of year.
Was quite shocked on the saturday evening when we requested to enter the hall to be told it was not for campers, only residents. I thought the door was open for all Gods people!
