"Dirty facilities and noisy"

Anonymous - Stayed Aug 2019

The sanitary block was not clean. The same cake that was smeared all over the toilets in the afternoon, was still there in the morning. I was kept awake by a group (which are not supposed to be allowed) swearing and being rather loud until past midnight. The fee paid... The sanitary block was not clean. The same cake that was smeared all over the toilets in the afternoon, was still there in the morning. I was kept awake by a group (which are not supposed to be allowed) swearing and being rather loud until past midnight. The fee paid to pitch a tent for one person was rather expensive given the quality of facilities. I would not reccomend this site, given there is no staff present in the evening to police anti-social behaviour. I spent several weeks travelling in Europe, where all the sites were much cheaper and had far nicer facilities.

"Expensive site, poor quality, very disappointing"

We had expected a quality site given the price of the site, but it was lesson in that you don’t always get what you pay for. The caravan park is tucked around the back through a few static caravans.

The caravan park is tucked around the back through a few static caravans. It looks out over the churchyard, no view of the lake. The pitches are quite small. The toilet and shower block is inadequate with only two toilet cubicles in both the ladies and gents, and one shower in each. There were two family bathrooms but the shower curtain was too short and the floor flooded if the shower is used. The whole block needs refurbishment, maintenance and a good deep clean along with the dishwashing and laundry area. We were very disappointed and pleased to leave.

"Great for a short stay"

Gosfield Lake Resort is unique and like an oasis within its surroundings. We didn't go for the water skiing but just for a break and change of scene in our caravan and Gosfield was perfect for that. It was dog friendly, clean and tidy, always something going on to... Gosfield Lake Resort is unique and like an oasis within its surroundings. We didn't go for the water skiing but just for a break and change of scene in our caravan and Gosfield was perfect for that. It was dog friendly, clean and tidy, always something going on to watch but at same time quiet. Great weekend

We selected this park due to its close proximity to Gosfield Hall where we were attending a wedding during the week of our stay. We arrived on the Sunday of the August bank holiday weekend and the park was really busy with a large number of tents pitched by the lake as well as nearly all the caravan pitches occupied and a significant number of day visitors. The small number of toilets and shower facilities were clearly insufficient and consistent cleanliness was an issue. Fortunately for us the park quietened down after the bank holiday and we were able to access the facilities when we wanted to.

We stayed at Gosfield Lake during the August bank holiday with 4 adults and 4 children aged 6 and under. Friendly and welcoming staff,had an electric pitch for our tent. Lovely little site,very well kept with good facilities. Area around the lake was very pretty and well kept,children really enjoyed the play park and we enjoyed relaxing by the lake and watching the water sports. Good toilet/shower facilities and washing up room,good they had a freezer for ice blocks too. Overall a relaxed site with friendly staff and safe for the children. Had a cafe.and restaurant on site which looked lovely although we didn't use either. Also a pub a short walk up the road and children's park and playing field which makes it a good location.

"Gosfield lake August bank holiday"

Anonymous - Stayed with family, Aug 2019

We stayed for two nights, in non electric pitch by lake and playground. Pitched on sloping ground near to the facilities but was better than flat ground further from facilities as had a toddler. Facilities were a bit tired looking and grubby but not too crowded... We stayed for two nights, in non electric pitch by lake and playground. Pitched on sloping ground near to the facilities but was better than flat ground further from facilities as had a toddler. Facilities were a bit tired looking and grubby but not too crowded considering it was bank holidays and fully booked. Gorgeous weather made it a beautiful weekend.

"Great place"

Mr. E Kane - Stayed with friends, Aug 2019

I have visited Gosfield for the last three years with family and friends. It is super relaxed and in a great location. The tent pitches are not over sold so there is plenty of space when full. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Always recommend.
