Love this site! Amazingly clean and well run. August 2012 bank holiday firework show spectacular. Will definitely be returning here for a future stay. Would also love to stay in one of the barns with a group of people. Felt safe and friendly. Downside was it pretty much poured down for the week which is not good whilst camping and the ground did get quite boggy at certain areas we were pitched. Did not cause too much problem as people were just asked to keep cars off the grass and those that didn't got stuck which was there own fault for not listening! Pitch where you wish to with respect to others, please note not all people abide by this rule but security will move them if needed. Excellent play areas.
