I visited this campsite as a family of 5. Great first impression, got shown to our pitch by the very helpful and friendly wardens. The campsite was very busy but people all around were very friendly. Jakks barn was a very good family friendly club, children's bar was very well priced and the staff were unfaultable, it was also very clean. The cafe we used frequently, very well priced and was good tasty food, the staff were also welcoming. The children used the pool and were very happy. The toilet blocks were very clean, thought they cleaned them at an unreasonable time (11. 00am-12. 30pm) The shop on site is small and suitabley priced and stocks a good range of products. The pitch was a good size and had plenty of room. As being a dog lover the dog walk wasn't suitable for that amount of people. I would highly recommend you visit this site as it is a very family friendly site.

Nice site. Plenty of space and very rural, lots of wooded areas, etc. However I think it needs some money investing in it to make it more of an appealing site.

The swimming pool area was very 'tired'. The Patio slabs were uneven and there were weeds growing in-between the gaps. The grass around the edges of the pool and slabbed area was quite unkempt and the chairs and tables placed around the pool, had certainly seen better days.

I also thought that there could have been more toilet and shower blocks for a site that is fairly spread out. We were in the purple area of the site and the nearest block was a good 3 minute walk away.

In addition, the block never seemed to be that clean, even after I visited the showers which was about 15 minutes after the daily 9. 30 to 10. 30am time when the block was closed for cleaning, each day.

On the plus side, all of the staff were very pleasant and helpful, however I wouldn't rush to go back there again.

Just spent a few days at this site. It is very easy to find and in a lovely area but definitely will not go again. The Wardens were very helpful and we like the barrier system. Several things let this site down which is a shame as it has good potential.

1. On entering the site you first see a section with old used motorhomes and caravans for sale which looks a very rough and neglected area.

2. Before we got to our pitch we passed several rough and run down areas that contained seasonal caravans and also rough tarmac areas for touring caravans and motorhomes where no awnings are allowed.

3. By the end of the day the toilets give the appearance of being dirty and run down.

4. Swimming Pool - apparently this area is fairly new but you would not think so.

5. Jaks Barn is OK and also the cafe by Jaks Barn - cannot fault these.

Overall the site could do with a good clean up. A lot of the seasonal caravans and their awnings were very dirty. The site should impose a rule that the owners must keep the outside of their caravan/awning clean and presentable. Many of these seasonal pitches had long grass and large weeds surrounding them.

We managed to get a booking at Lower lacon at fairly short notice for a Bank Holiday - everywhere else was booked up.

Our first impressions were 'oh no, what have we done' - the first part of the site with the Motorhome sales area really gave a bad impression. Then we were confronted by a barriage of kids on all sorts of bikes, scooters etc who seemed to continuously ride from one end of the site to the other.

After passing the camping pitch (which to be honest looked a bit like a music festival site - there didn't seem to be much room between the tents) we were directed to our hardstanding pitch by a very friendly warden.

Unfortunately, the pitch was right next to the main road through the site, so there was no real privacy from the constant passing of groups of kids and teens, and a few seemed to like to congregate just outside our van for some reason.

But we thought 'at least it's a weekend away' and battened down the hatches. Things went nice and quiet before midnight, and we managed to sleep well.

The procession and gathering continued throughout the weekend, but to be honest, in the end it didn't really bother us. I stuck my head around the door of Jakks barn, but didn't bother going in.

Showers were very grubby in the morning, and there is only one hook to hang your clothes on - so they inevitably fell in the mud at the end of the cubicle - and I was a little surprised to see that the shower blocks were closed from 11-12:30 for cleaning - surely they weren't cleaned just once a day?

We managed to catch the train from Wem to Shrewsbury on Saturday, and walked into Wem on Sunday - both very nice.

In all, an ok weekend, where we sort-of got used to the hustle and bustle - but I doubt we'll go back, and I certainly wouldn't recommend it if you fancy a peaceful break!

Well me and my boyfriend had been here before and really enjoyed it. This time we went with our friends and still enjoyed it but found they was just a little bit too strict. We understood that it was a family park and about the noise to a minimum at 11 but when you have adults playing there music at 7:50 in the morning and not being told didn't make us very happy.

All the facilities there were very good but found that the toilets were too far to walk to at night yet the caravans were very close and obviously they have their own toilets. The bar staff by the pool was very polite.

We also found that it was too strict with the way we had to put our tents and cars I think if we was able to pick where we wanted to go you wouldn't have the problem with people complaining.

So overall this is not a good site for if you want a laugh in a group

Excellent site in a fantastic location.

On arrival we were given a map and a barrier card (10 returnable) - there is a strict 5mph speed limit on the site which is adhered to and the wardens do let people know if they are going too fast.

The site is separated into various small 'fields' which each hold around 10 pitches and are surrounded by trees and hedges which give it a small friendly feel - although there are also 2 large tent fields which don't seem as 'cosy'.

The toilet / shower block was large and the hot water was free and plentiful. The toilets were cleaned regularly and are closed from 12. 30-1. 30 for a deep clean. The first night we arrived it was raining so the floor was getting muddy but as if by magic the mud vanished very quickly due to the diligence of the cleaners.

There are staff members driving around regularly and the site has a very safe feel to it.

The children's play area is great and there are also woodland walkways built to connect the fields to the toilet blocks which are great for exploring.

The outdoor pool was fantastic and luckily we had great weather so the kids were in it both days we were there - the bar is next door so we enjoyed a cold beer whilst watching the tiddleypeeps swim!

The shop is very well stocked and is very well priced - often site shops rip you off but this was not the case here. Papers can be ordered in advance for collection.

There are numerous animals around the site which is great for children.

Washing up sinks are 10p each so make sure you have a supply of 10p pieces.

There is a laundrette, plenty of water points.

We will be returning to this site as it close to home but mainly because it has everything we would want from a site.
