The expression "blown away" takes on new meaning when you park your caravan at this clifftop camp.
The elevation gives it fantastic views over the port and coast, but if the wind gets up, watch out. Overnighters tend to be parked on the cliff edge, and if the weather is calm, that's fine. But we had a few nights there when the westerly battered us so badly we thought we would be rolled down onto the coastal walkway below. The fact there are no barriers at the cliff edge was a serious worry.
Last time, we were a couple of rows in at the western end of the camp, and the gales didn't feel quite so bad.
The camp manager was very helpful with a jockey wheel problem we had, but otherwise we didn't see or hear from anyone running the place, even though we stayed a month. Not very friendly. They also refused to extend our stay on the site a couple of extra days, even though there were spare sites nearby. It's a hassle to move the awning, so we just left.
There are no places to drain grey water on the sites, and there is a serious shortage of taps. During our last stay, the tap near us looked like an oil rig Christmas tree, it had so many connections.
The toilet block at the western end is primitive, with one tiny hand basin under the the mirror. If someone is shaving, you can't wash your hands. For such an expensive camp, this is not good enough.
The place looks like it could do with a rev up. We won't be staying there again (not sure our awning could take it).
