Just returned from a 2 night stay on a non electric pitch. Went with a large group of friends and stayed on the Family area. As the ground was very waterlogged at the rear of the family pitches, we could pitch our tent wherever we wanted and take up as much space as we needed and not stick to the marked spaces which was good for us as we had just bought a porch for our tent and wanted to try it out but weren't sure whether it would all fit into the space provided.

Upon arriving at the site we were greeted by very friendly reception staff and were directed to our pitch by the warden, again a very friendly chap. You have to pay a 10 deposit for a parking barrier key.

When going round the site to our pitch, we did have to pass a 'variety' of caravans, some with really dirty awnings which did make the site look very tatty. These could really do with being cleaned or tidied up as initially it did put us off. We were pitched right next to the playground which was ideal for my little girl as she was on there all of the time we were there and we could see her from our tent.

My little girl also regularly fed the sheep and alpacas, which the shop sold food for at 30p a bag. The wardens also take the children round showing them the animals. We weren't too far away from the toilet block either which was kept very clean.

Showers were free but were luke warm but this didn't really bother me. Washing up facilities were OK but again, luke warm water which you had to pay 10p for. We didn't eat at the cafe or go to the entertainment on site so cannot comment about that. Shop was very reasonably priced.

We ordered a chinese and indian meal and had it delivered to the site which was brilliant. Would use site again but only if going in a group.

We arrived at the site for a weekend and decided not to let the weather put us off. Arriving at the site we were checked in by friendly staff and shown to our pitch near the 1st toilet block.

We set up and had a cuppa and then decided to take a walk round the park. A great deal of seasonal caravans with the most stained awnings and decrepit caravans, why let your staff and site down with this is beyond me.

The park had animals dotted all around around the site. It was nice to see the children feeding them and they were very well kept. You could buy feed at the shop for 30p a bag.

We did not use any of the bars as we are non drinkers.

A group of 3 families came to stay here for 2 nights, we had 5 children in all, the weather wasn't good but the children found plenty of things to do.

The shower block was clean at all times and so was the site it's self.

The staff were all friendly and was on hand when needed.

The club house was ok but could do with having a little more entertainment for both children & adults.

The shop was well kitted out and prices were good too.

The crazy golf is fine, the pool could be a little warmer in colder weather and the park could be updated.

The animals were great and the children enjoyed seeing them.

This is the first time we have been to the site and we will be going back.

Just returned from the Jubilee bank holiday weekend camping trip. 3 night stay at lower lacon caravan park, overall we had a pleasant stay, however there are some ground issues when pegging your tent or awning, due to the rock hard ground, be prepared to purchase rock pegs before you arrive.

A 10 payment is required on arrival for the car barrier pass (refunded on leave). On arrival the site looks a little tired around the edges and some areas could do with an uplift e. G. Kids playground and crazy golf section. Privately owned areas are dilapidated and run down which spoils the look of the park.

A warden arrived shortly after finding the pitch which wasn't very well signposted, he informed us of the rules of pitching as to avoid the children being run over by the cars leaving and entering the park. The access points for cars are straight past the children's playground (go figure) some of the public areas are overgrown and need tending (nettles are an issue) along the main route.

The facilities were just adequate, although queues formed for showers on the 2 days we were there (at least a 30 min wait) it was bank holiday though. Showers were lukewarm at best and the tiled floor was freezing. There were limited facilities for the amount of people on site, another toilet and shower block is required. There is one family bathroom available which we used to bath our 2 small children (20p for lukewarm water) which we thought was cheeky when you have already paid the site fees (76. 50 for 3 nights, non-electric). There is also a charge for washing up (10p) for lukewarm water.

We didn't sample the food or entertainment when we were there so couldn't comment, we did pop into JAKKS Barn for a quick drink, a revamp is required, looked like a school dining hall.

The on-site shop was reasonably priced and you could purchase your basic essentials there. Tried to purchase replacement gas from the shop, to find they had only limited stock, however their is a texaco garage about 2 miles away which sells replacement gas in wem.

All in all we did enjoy our stay, it was convenient for us (39 miles) ok for a short break, but wouldn't visit for an extended holiday. Wem is a quiet village, with limited activities locally. May return in the future.

This is quite a large site with a mixture of tents and tourers in the same areas. We arrived during what looked like a quite busy period, there were vehicles backed up to the main road waiting to be booked in.

When we finally got to reception we were dealt with quite quickly but there was a large queue that had formed, so how long other guests had to wait I can only guess. We were given a map guiding us to our pitch and were told that someone would be waiting there to help us. There wasn't! The grassed pitch was quite uneven and the water point was directly behind us so there was a constant stream of people for water.

There seems to be quite a lot of seasonal/ semi-static tourers their with the awnings left up. Many of them were covered in algae and had long grass surrounding them which, along with the somewhat haphazard arrangement of the pitches gave the park a bit of a scruffy 'refugee' feel.

The camp, and entertainment is definitely geared for young families and the children's play area could do with a bit of maintenance. One of the swings was broken, and the see-saw was stiff and brayed like a donkey due to lack of oil, which scared the grand-daughter; small things like this make the difference in my opinion.

We went to Wem for some food, a nice little town but didn't seem to be a lot to do there, just a few streets of shops and fast food outlets.

Still, the showers and toilets were very clean in spite of the crowds and our 4 year old enjoyed the 'agadoo/superman' disco cheese. All the staff we spoke to were friendly too.

Definitely not one for those seeking a relaxing break as it's rough and ready, and made for the loud crowd; there are gangs of teenagers roaming around till all hours as well, but it is what it is and if peace and quiet is not a priority, it does have something to offer.

Well we stayed at this site from Friday till Sunday. Check in was ok. The toilet and shower facilities on the site were spot on.

We went for breakfast to the cafe on site and have been ill since. They seem to use very old chip fat and fry the eggs in it and our clothes smelt bad of stale fat. Many people complained about the standard of food sold. We were warned by some seasonal caravan owners to steer clear of the cafe we should have listened to them.

The Barn where the children could go in was reasonable. While walking round some of the touring caravans which are seasonal could do with a good clean as it lets the site down.

The outdoor pool area needs a good clean and the umbrellas have seen better days.

The animals are well kept.

One thing I will say is the owners may make a lot of money so why let standards slip? They could make this site so good. They leave very very old caravan falling apart for all to view.

Would I go back. Hell no. The health inspectors need to look into the kitchens.
