Arrived at the site and were greeted by the lovely owners who could not do enough and were very helpful with local information.
During our 2 week stay the weather was changeable but the site allowed variable but sensible games that were provided by the site ie board games and undercover tv area and a covered pingpong table, available at all times. The request that the owner very politely and sensibly asked was that Lizsussex01 children who were constantly shouting never talking and were annoying other residents on the site with guns with the annoying shooting noise that started from the minute they awoke in the morning till the time the children were called in..!!! That was a reasonable request but of course that was not good enough, if your kids were amused then who cares about the people near you or in tents.!!! Like you said the pitches were small but they were ample for most outfits. I have 3 children 1 in an annexe who was fuming about being woken and a 9 and 3 year old who were woken by the named children.!! 2 words CONTROL and RESPECT.
The toilet facilities are basic but are clean and ample for the number of pitches. As for the lights tripping it never happened to us and we were there 2 wks with no problems.
When it rained it did get muddy but the helpful owners offered ground sheets and car mats to avoid churning the grass for following campers what a good idea. The children were advised to keep off the grass when really wet as to avoid making it boggy, which I think is a reasonable request Lizsussex01 not being grumpy.
And last of all as for the noisy teenagers that were my son and his friends they are not teenagers they are 12 and there noise level was acceptable for the time they were all quiet and watching tv by 9:30 . Just 1 night they had fun and there was never a night when the older ones caused problems they had fun and were sensible however many complaints were made about your children by many people .
Overall to anyone who is thinking of booking please do not judge by one begrudge camper who needs control over 2 unruly kids please look at the other reviews . We had a very pleasant stay the site is small the other campers were really pleasant and the site is central for many visitor attractions a wonderful and relaxing 2 wks had and we will certainly return in the near future .
