on arrival at the campsite we were given a pleasant welcome and a map of the site with vacant plots marked, we walked the site and chose our pitch, a good size pitch with water and electric close by. The toilets were always clean even though the site was busy, always toilet paper available. The showers in the ladies are small but adequate, there was plenty of hot water. A shower was available for children, a larger room with a shower at a lower level, very popular. Washing up sinks were under cover but outside, well lit and again always hot water. Access to the ladies toilets is through the washing/ironing room so the washroom was always used by women. Washers and driers were available, 2 irons and ironing boards. Hairdriers ( 2 ) were available in the laundry room and there was plenty of shelf space for hair dryers and straighteners etc. The washrooms had plenty of mirrors and good lighting. The shop was open from 8 til 8 but most nights it was open later, the shop was well stocked, bottles of lager were £1 each, lots of reasonable priced goods. A marquee was set up and a tv was available for anyone wanting to watch the olympics, very popular at night. Free wi fi was available on the decking outside the shop and this was very popular for emails, Facebook etc. The animals were a popular attraction, the pigs were great and the chickens were always looking for bread, everyone fed them left over scraps and a few hens wandered around the site pecking around the doorways to tents. Everyone quietened down by 10.30 so it was quiet at night.
A good clean site with easy access to the main road for the ferry and airport. The roads on the island are very narrow, driving is slow but a great place to explore, the owners of the site were very helpful recommending places to visit and pubs to go to.
