People are right, this is a lovely site, great views and facilities, showers, toilets although there could be more of them, had to queue occasionally but they are well kept and clean. The site is quite, nothing other than aforementioned showers, toilets and site shop- just a couple of gripes and these to me are major gripes, the trouble is the pictures of the sea are misleading, the site is at least two miles from the nearest beach over vale and hill and over one mile from the nearest pubs - both are along paths that are narrow and muddy and the hills have made muscles work on my legs I didn't know I had! Ideal if you like hiking, needless to say, I don't, not even to the pub. You could walk along the road, which we tried, but you take your life in your hands with the traffic whizzing past at breakneck speed. we got a taxi back, the buses tend to stop running about five at night, yes five at night. The weather didn't help because on one of our 'hikes' we got absolutely soaking wet. Most of the time we went out in the car which defeats my idea of a relaxing holiday.
Great site if you plan on walking for miles to reach any kind of amenity, beach, pub, etc or if you plan on sitting outside your caravan, tent etc reading or contemplating the views because there is absolutely nothing here to do.
If you like a casual stroll of meters rather than miles look for somewhere nearer the action!
