Stayed here for the bonfire weekend, weather was truly awful.

When we booked there were only grass pitches left - these turned out to be a mudbath with standing water everywhere.

People were understandably reluctant to park on the grass but this meant the narrow gravel roads were partially blocked - with some even double parking (this made getting off the site quite tricky).

In my view - the grass pitch bookings should have been cancelled or at least some effort made to inform people of the state they were in prior to arrival.

In addition - the pub across the road is not good, they first of all forgot our order, then it was wrong when it eventually turned up. Sticky Tables & filthy carpet - stinking toilets too!

Overall a pretty awful weekend spent here, couldn't wait to get home.

We visited this site twice last year just after we bought our motorhome as it is near to where we live so that if we had any problems we wouldn't be far from home. We really enjoyed our stays - the site, is clean and well maintained - the staff were friendly and helpful. There are a few places to eat nearby and some pretty walks - Croston itself is a very interesting place with lovely historic buildings.

Visited this campsite over the weekend with friends & family, small children and dog. Reception didn't have our correct booking- only had us down for one tent with ehu instead of two, warden apologised but was also had to wait a few mins for her to arrive to let us in. Pitches were good, flat and dry and pitched us next to each other. Was expecting a little more from this site so came away feeling disappointed with what was on offer- expected more things for the children ie marquee with activities going on. Was told this happens hight of the season only. One playground and large field for football or other ball games. Showers clean and tidy very warm water but did feel a little grubby in the showers. Didn't like it when met with a group of teenage girls each time I visited the toilets and showers. Seasonal residents did seem to be having a good laugh and plenty of beer during the weekend but didn't find this offensive and this didn't cause us any problems later on during the evening. My only complaint would be as previously mentioned in another review- seasonal residents happy to let there dogs roam free & mess on the grounds and turn a blind eye to it. Very annoying when you have children playing and I also had my own dog with me who was on a lead at all times and all his mess was always cleaned up. Think management need to clamp down on this- its not acceptable. Overall we had a lovely relaxing weekend break and will return next year over the summer period. Very reasonable prices for the pitches and electric was fine.

Recently spent a weekend here in our caravan on the tent pitch without EHU. It was our first ever camping trip in the caravan and thoroughly enjoyed it. Would have preferred EHU but it was fully booked. Going again for August bank holiday. Has a really nice feel about it with lovely residents and staff. Pity local tent visitors let their dogs fowl on the grass. Wardens need to be more aware of this. Otherwise a really good site and yummy burgers.

Wonderful site, great showers and toilets, very clean and in a great location, would definitely visit again very soon. Plots were all big and well separated, on site burger van was reasonable and served good food at breakfast and tea time, also several local pubs that do food within walking distance, bins were emptied regularly and kept very clean and tidy. Only down side was no shop on site, but there was a well stocked shop at the local petrol station about a 5 minute drive away.

My how this site has gone downhill, there are longterm residents leaving in their droves due to other residents rowdy, late night drunken parties till 2am! The place is a disgrace with scruffy units, yobish behaviour where people think its fine for foul language. Also many big open fires! what the hell is going on Royal Umpire! There are children as young as 7 running riot till after 11pm the toilets are filthy, the overall vibe of the place is hostile with many dogs roaming free and running in the roads! I would never go back here its an absolute disgrace. Until the few yob residents are removed this site will just get worse!
