Woodlands Camping and Caravan Park
Reviewed August 11, 2008

I feel i have a fiar experience of campsites, having stayed in over 200 different ones since 1980.
Firstly, location great, some staff great, woodlands leisure park great, cant fault it, some thing for everyone, wet or dry weather. camping site in general clean, all bins emptied every morning, some staff very friendly and helpful. thats all the good points.
Arrived on site, waited 20mins in pouring rain to be shown to pitch, fairly good size approx 30ftx15ft. The toilets and shower blocks were disgusting, would rather shower in the rain and use the hedge! floors in toilets always dirty, stunk very badly, as if never cleaned, showers freezing cold.
Luckily our pitch was a decent size, our next door neighbours had paid for 2 pitches but were made to cram 2 family size tents onto 1 pitch, electric feed kept trippin off, noisy site up untill about 12:30-1:30am. some staff riding around in golf karts very fast.

would never stay here again or reccomend to anyone.

yes use the woodlands leisure park, but not camp.

We have been coming to the leisure park for years as a day trip but the last 3 years have taken the caravan and made a week of it. We have been to many caravan parks across the south of England and Woodlands have by far the largest pitches. There is free entry to the leisure park if you stay for 2 or more nights and plenty of indoor fun if its wet. Last year it rained almost constantly but due to the great facilities we still had a great time, I think if we had been anywhere else we would of packed up early and gone home. Going again in august, fingers crossed for better weather!
