Just arrived back home after one nights stay, and had to submit a review straight away!
Agree totally with all of these reviews. We are not seasoned campers but have travelled the world! A smilie and a warm welcome is not much to ask for? On arrival during the 'grumpy' check in, the lady owner was shouting through her Walkie talkie to her grandson, threatening to smack his bum! Nice - not! After being told the first set of rules......We pitched up on the site - the views are lovely and the tent pitch level and well drained. Myself, my husband, 3yr old son and our dog headed up to the pub for a late lunch. A very grumpy landlord informed my husband that his card would not be acceptable as a guarantee for the tab for lunch and two drinks as we were sat outside! Two lame baskets of scampi and chips £7 each! arrived and your number is shouted out and left at the side of the road- you have to collect it if you are sat opp the pub by the river! We were the only ones eating and the guy couldn't walk 5 metres to us?????
The loos are ok- not as bad as India! They are in need of a good clean and a lick of paint. I wouldn't touch the showers! Gross!
We went out to the nearest sainsburys to get our supper as we were not going going to repeat the lunchtime experience!
Overall the location is nice but the site is not worth the hassle- poor attitude and grumpy site owners, loos that are way to far away and a pub that serves deep fried food with pints in plastic glasses and hostile atmosphere. What a shame they have wasted an opportunity to make this a fab family campsite. Will not be returning ever!
