If you want a peaceful, tranquil, location with room to sit outside or even BBQ then forget coming here. First impressions good, reception staff friendly and then it suddenly went downhill the pitch was more of a parking bay next to the main service road, we were crammed on with two other vans, there was no outside space to sit out let alone cook, my neighbours car was 18 inches away from my awning. My aframe was into the bush next to the kiddies play park which was taken over by teenagers and adults blasting a football about which hit my van and awning numerous times, no apologies. The nightly ritual was that the parents went off to the 'clubhouse'and their teenagers were left in the kiddies park playing music shouting and screaming and then wander around the site with cans of beer. Its the first time I have ever felt intimidated on a site, I even cleared my awning went I went out for the day it was hell. The staff are lovely the cleaner needs a medal clearing up the mess the shredded toilets rolls and half empty beer glasses left around the site. We had heard good reports about this site but it appears that it is catering for a different clinentel these days with the theme nights at the clubhouse pub rather than genuine caravaners. Also it is one of the most expensive sites. Terrible.

Back from three nights from Boxing day onwards The site was so quiet but the weather the day after Boxing day had been forecast as Gales. And it was. This still didn`t detract from an excellent stay. We arrived to find the Tent field is no more as its being turned into a new area for statics but the rest is just the same apart from the new pub is nearing completion.

Still a fantastic site!

6 of us plus a 2 year old visited this site as we used to camp here all the time as children. I must say I was quite disappointed with the place. The toilets next to the camping field were the worst I have been in. For the full 3 days we were there I did not see 1 sheet of toilet paper. There was 1 shower that didn't even have hooks to hang your clothes on so had to lay them on the floor. The site generally is nice with a very good shop and large pitches. I think I should have just left this site in my memories.

We were disappointed with this site for the money we paid, we had paid 33. 00 per night for a 3 night midweek stay at the end of June after returning from touring the Highlands, we chose this site for all the amenities that it offered. After we booked in we were told that there was no food available as it was midweek and the site was nearly empty, the Bar was open though

Most of the caravans were either statics or long term tourers, we chose a fully serviced pitch and the two pitches adjacent to us were occupied by contractors who had to park there large National Grid lorries overshadowing our pitch and they were leaving for work each morning at 06:45 so it did not feel like much of a holiday for us.

This said the toilet facilities and was up areas were spotless, although they were starting to look a little tired with some of the cubicle partitions starting to crumble and I understand that there was only one hot shower working in the ladies. Clean site but overpriced.

Had a great couple of days here over the Bank Holiday weekend, site was busy but not overly, plenty of room to pitch, pool still on the cold side but only to be expected this early in the year.

We caught the sun just right which always makes camping that bit easier.

Toilet block as ever was spotless however the showers were a bit hit and miss with regards to hot water.

New bar area was a welcome as champions league final was on and the TV was a godsend, though got very busy service was swift, takeaway is very good as is the on site shop, well stocked with what you would need.

Play areas I was assured by my children are ok but the tennis/badminton area could do with a facelift.

Overall a great place to stay and well worth the fee's so much so that we intend to return at the end of Aug.

Just got back after a 4 day stay over the Easter weekend and can honestly say I was a little disappointed. The site itself and the surrounding area are stunning with good pitches and a top club house but a couple of things let it down. The first thing was that in the morning I went up to the toilet block for a shower and was greeted a large queue as there are only two showers so I walked down to the other shower block opposite reception. When I got down there found no queue (bonus) but soon found out why. Showers were freezing cold so had to walk all the way back up to the first block and wait. The whole thing took up over an hour and I feel shouldn't happen on a five star site.

The other thing was on the last night I thought we would treat ourselves to a takeaway as we had seen many people walked past on previous nights. But when I went down to order it had shut early not sure why as the site was fully booked up. So we thought we would grab a meal from the club house only to be told the had ran out of everything and were not serving. This was a big problem for me now with a pregnant wife and a 1 And 8 year old as the site is in the middle of nowhere and I was unable to get any food for tea.

Generally a good site but these things really let it down and don't think it is worthy of the five star status
