Great site, good for adults, but a 20 minute drive to park and ride and then 10 minute + journey into Bath. Lovely individual fully serviced bathrooms, 10 in all. Clean and modern with shower, vanity unit, hooks toilet rolls etc. , etc. , spotless. Only comment which didn't happen for us but could in the busy season was what if all bathroom units were full and you just needed a toilet? and if all the bathroom pods were fully occupied there was nowhere to go! Nice to see that all dogs were on leads a great plus for us as not everyone likes dogs! Very informative library/information centre on site. Yes would definitely visit again.

Booked into this site based on the reviews. On arrival we were shown to a pebble covered pitch, however, even with the largest chocs (which moved as the pebbles rolled with the weight of the vehicle so not at all safe) it made no difference to the level at all. Shown to another pitch which was flat (not in the best of condition though) but lacked any light/sunshine because of the surrounding hedges and trees which are in abundance on this site so the tv signal not too good! Very little grassed open areas and where there are they are very soft and boggy due to the location of the lake we believe? The toilet block is a little dated with shower curtains which allows water to cascade all over the floor outside of the showers. I personally found the facilities very dark and claustrophobic with just a tiny window to allow air in/out and didn't use them for this reason. On a positive note there are a few nice light and open pitches near the fishpond ( if you can get them) and a small enclosed area for walking dogs. We decided to change our plans and stay for one night only as this site just wasn't for us, too enclosed with greenery, however, the older generation seemed to like it.

Absolutely agree with the description of this site. It is a great site and it is in a lovely location. I would like to expand on one crucial detail though and this is of particular importance to motor homers. When the facilities mention public transport 1M away they forget to add that buses to Bath are limited. To one day per week. When one bus goes through the village (Bishop Sutton). The day in question is Tuesday and the time of the bus is round about 9. 00 AM. Personally I think this is very poor for a site that says it is located in Bath and Bath being 13 miles away. Something else to consider is that Chew Valley lake is only accessible from the site down a narrow windy road with no footpath and very few places to dive into when one of the locals comes haring round a corner. As I say a lovely site but we won't be going back. Shame really because I was really looking forward to visiting this site given all the build up and praise it gets. However there's no substitute for going to have a look yourself and I'm glad I can tick this one off my list.

Was apprehensive about visiting after reading some of the negative reviews, however it is one of the best sites we have stayed on. Staff very friendly and helpful, really clean well maintained site. The washroom/toilets were lovely and warm, better than a lot of hotels we have stayed in. They are all self contained with hairdryer, hand drier, they are unisex but as they are all private it's not important, The people that complained about this should try the campsite toilets in France ! where we spend a lot of time.

I have to give a low rating for this site purely because of the cost. It was 29 for 2 adults and a dog, EHU. For one night. Gobsmacked. We had intended to wild camp down at the Chew Valley Lake picnic area, but found out they were going to lock the gates at sunset and would probably kick us out, so didn't want to risk opening the wine. This site was the closest one, and with a whinging dog in the van we really couldn't face the prospect of driving around a bit longer to find a nice layby. So we paid :(.

The dog walking area is tiny, basically a narrow fenced strip around a little woodland area (no dogs allowed in that bit :(). Dogs on lead on site, rubbish. I guess there are decent walks close by.

Free wi fi for 30 minutes then you have to pay. On top of the 29 quid they've just had off us, no chance. Free internet access in the library, this is a nice touch but why not just give us free wi fi so we can surf from the comfort of our van?!

Showers and loos clean and roomy. Dish washing room nice and spacious.

You can't choose your own pitch. They ask you to put awnings up on gravel, not on the grass. Pretty weird, I'm glad we weren't staying long enough to put the awning up, would've been ouchy on the feet. Check-out time 11am.

Well this was a first for us staff tow your van in and level it. Toilets are all individual but the showers kept dropping pressure, well kept site grass cut and flowers watered only problem with this site is the adults that have to empty there grey water at 7-00am going over the stoney road and waking us up, we don't all go to bed at 9-00pm I do not think it warrants 40 per night
