Just returned following a 3 night stay. Site was busy due to the Tour de France weekend, should have been busier but the site had a lot of no shows. Very inconsiderate, the booked pitches could have been taken by others who really wanted them.

Narrow approach in places, but not a problem.

Site consists of an adult only/ hard standing and 2 immaculately kept fields, electric and none electric pitches mainly grass with a few hard standing. 2 water taps and one waste and refuse point. 2 toilets on main field with toilet / shower block and washing up and laundry near reception / well stocked shop. Free range eggs.

Owners are in the process of building a new facility block nearer the camp fields.

The present shower block consists of 2 large showers with sinks 50p token operated, available from shop. 3 toilets and sinks per ladies and gents. Water hot, ample time for a good shower. Dated but spotless. Did not use washing up area or launderette.

Family owned site very pleasant people, always around, eager to please but not intrusive.

No play area on site, but lots of room to play, a play area 2 mins just off site.

Part of the site has privately owned chalets and another private area for longer stay resident caravans.

10 mins pleasant walk off site around lake side takes you to one of the lake side cafés. Fantastic views of the lake. Or try the longer walk down to the main area where you are spoilt for choice were to eat, from fish and chips to a pub lunch.

Parking must be paid for, but there is plenty. Several disabled parking spots.

Visitors centre has a very large car park and cafe. A wild life haven, saw heron on camp site. Will definitely be returning soon only 40 mins from home. £16 per night for caravan, awning, electric x3 adults.

This site is just wow. Fab location, toilets and facilities very very clean. Never a queue. Kids loved this so much they have asked to go back next year for a week instead of going abroad. Manchester rail travel return off peak for 2 adults and 2 children £10. 20p. Bloke who does the rounds on a morning is more than helpful, brought as old something or other to prevent water and mud being trailed into our tent after heavy rain during the night. Will be returning without a doubt, and pub in nearby village equates to £5. 00 per head. What more can you ask at £14 per night for all 4.

Just had 4 wonderful nights at this site. Only 25 minutes from home, were pleased to just get pitch with electric somewhere! as it was a bank holiday. The largest field was open so we easily found a nice pitch.

We were pleasantly surprised by the site and facilities, although I have to say the toilets on the field we were in were not the best, basically two loos in a lockup! No soap in there which we thought was a bit lacking in this day and age and only a cold water tap. Room for improvement there although the other toilet/shower facilities on the site were great. I guess if we were to go again we would ask to be located closer to the other loos.

Anyway, that's the negatives over with. The site is so relaxing, right at the side of hollingworth lake which is very popular for tourists. Access onto the lakeside walk is via a stile and then 20 yards ahead is the path. Lovely walk round the lake with two pubs along the way. We ate at The local chip shop, very good value for money and also ate at the amusement arcade which was also very good value.

The owners very helpful and friendly, small shop which stocked the essentials on site and there is a park which although not part of the site, is accessible from the site over a wall. Our kids loved it. Loads of room for them to ride their bikes too and although cycling is restricted on the residential section of the park there was no restriction in the camping areas.

Just up the hill from the site is a riding stables which offers hacks at a very reasonable price (£10 per child for 3/4 hour). Well worth it for our 2 and we followed them round so enjoyed a nice walk too.

All in all we were absolutely delighted by this site, it was so relaxing, even on a busy bank holiday weekend. And fantastic value for money! £14 per night inc hookup. No surcharge for bank hol and no minimum night stay which is very unusual.

We will be back very soon

Great but basic campsite. The field that we were on was very flat and consisted mainly of tents. There were 2 toilets located on this field that were in a converted portacabin. They were basic but clean and well stocked. There is a newer toilet/shower block which is a short walk from this field.

We had really good weather so it was great for the kids to be able to play on a fantastic kiddies adventure type playground which is situated just outside the site.

The camp shop is very well stocked and quite reasonably priced.

Whilst the site was quite busy it was not over noisy even though there was some sort of youth group camping in tents just across from us.

Everyone was really friendly and the place had a great atmosphere.

It's only about 5 miles from where we live but we felt like we could have been anywhere in the country.

We enjoyed it so much we are going back next week!

Just returned back from a two night weekend stay at this site.

We have been previously, around two years ago but with a caravan. We booked here as everywhere else was full due to the hot weather. We were told it was a two night minimum stay. £14 a night for two adults, two children, a dog and EHU - it has been this price for years so fair play to the owners!

We were a little surprised upon arriving Friday teatime to find all the pitches very close together and they still squeezed more people on!

Nice level pitch and they now have two toilets in the field which is handy for the kids. Showers in the newer block were fine, 50p for 15 mins. Washing up - useless! They used to charge 20p for red hot water. It's now free and lukewarm. Would rather pay the 20p.

Handy little shop, however last time we went they sold me Calpol that was two years out of date! They were mortified however and very apologetic :-)

Plenty of room for the children to play football and water fights went down a treat! There was one large group who were very noisy on the first night until 3. 15am. However the next night you could hear a pin drop so we assume they were warned.

It's horrendous for midges and this made sitting out at night unbearable at times. All came home bitten.

All in all, for £14 a night you cannot grumble however do expect noise! Cheap and cheerful :-)

We booked for 2 nights with my brother in law and sister in law. This was our second visit. Mostly flat with electric hook ups. You can see the Motorway but couldn't really hear it

Two extra toilets on field are acceptable. But only cold water. The main shower block is very clean with showers and sinks.

We met 2 lovely ladies who live on site and one of the owners lovely guy.

In walking distance to lake with its pubs and cafe's. We didn't have our grandchildren with us but plenty room for kids to run around and a park very close.

However we had a very large group pitch next to us who woke me up late Saturday night when he shone his torch at our tent, then he unzipped my tent and stuck his head inside Screaming !

This has made me nervous of going back.
