"Facilities well below expectations."

Mr P Chapman - Stayed with family, Oct 2018

Very disappointed with toilet facilities. Gents were always locked so needed to use the shared facilities. There was no heating despite extremely cold weather. But worse than that there was no toilet paper in either cubicle. (And I really needed some.) This is... Very disappointed with toilet facilities. Gents were always locked so needed to use the shared facilities. There was no heating despite extremely cold weather. But worse than that there was no toilet paper in either cubicle. (And I really needed some.) This is disgraceful. The toilets were obviously not being checked. Not good.

"First family camping trip and water-skiing adventure"

The owners were friendly, the site is well presented and wash blocks clean. The field where we camped was fine - but note there is quite a walk between the camping area and the wash block. We all tried water-skiing and loved it. The teachers were great - very clear and patient. Overall a lovely mini-break.

"Very friendly site"

Anonymous - Stayed with friends, Sep 2018

Staff were really friendly and helpful. The pitches with hook ups are closer to the facilities than the tent pitches but are bordered on 3 sides by owner occupied static caravans and bungalows. Some are well looked after & some are not. It’s not the most attractive... Staff were really friendly and helpful. The pitches with hook ups are closer to the facilities than the tent pitches but are bordered on 3 sides by owner occupied static caravans and bungalows. Some are well looked after & some are not. It’s not the most attractive part of the site although you are next to the church which is pretty. Not all pitches are level enough for tents but it’s not a problem for caravans or motor homes. There is a great play park nearby (offsite) and the pub/village shop are very close too.

"Weekend visit"

Anonymous - Stayed with family, Aug 2018

Site clean and lake looked nice. Would probably visit again if wanting to stay on the area. Toilet facilities need looking at. Toilet would get blocked easy but staff would come and sort them if you let them know.

"Great site. Avoid internet"

R McEwen - Stayed with partner, Aug 2018

Nothing negative to say about the site itself. BUT. I paid to access the internet. The service took my money with ease but would not recognise the username and password after that. The email address provided for complaints keeps sending a ‘not deliverable’ reply when I... Nothing negative to say about the site itself. BUT. I paid to access the internet. The service took my money with ease but would not recognise the username and password after that. The email address provided for complaints keeps sending a ‘not deliverable’ reply when I asked for my money back. I’m sure there is a perfectly good reason why this is but I feel ripped off frankly and had considered reporting this to the police. And may still do. Internet is not operated by the site otherwise I would have contacted them. Other than that I really enjoyed my stay.

"Not Family friendly"

I think the site needs to decide if it is family or party friendly. We had a lovely first day and night, Just what we wanted.

I think the site needs to decide if it is family or party friendly. We had a lovely first day and night, Just what we wanted. On the second day a very large group (who booked in together) pitched up next to us. Now I am no prude nor am I quiet but what followed was akin being next to an over excite scout and guide camp. They were not as such doing anything wrong but everything they did day and night was done at full volume. My Daughter and young son had to leave as the boy got very little sleep

"Hi de hi"

Mr M Bisiker - Stayed with family, Aug 2018

Short stay at the campsite and loved it. The only issue was that, because of heavy rain, there was a boggy smell in the campsite. But it wasn't overbearing and otherwise, the people, and the place was really nice.
