Repeat visit, our second time this year. There are now new managers at the site, they're both so keen to give the site some TLC, though it's too early to say if they've got a grip on the points in previous reviews. But they have lots of ideas, and I have no doubt we'll be back as 'the price is right' and there's so much to do in the area.

A lovely site spoilt only bu the condition of the toilet/shower block. There is mould around the sealant, the floors were dirty and the bottom of the shower curtains were discoloured by algae. I am surethat all this could be rectified at no large expense.

0ther than that, this is great site, being adjacent to a safe, clean snd sandy beach. There is a play area for small children, good walks nearby and the facilities of the other Gillespie sites are allwithin a short car ride. We shall be going again in 2015.

1st visit to this peaceful site. If you like peace & quiet then this is the place, the only noise we got was from the numerous birds all around us. Nice welcome when we got there, a bit early but that wasn't a problem. Nice pitch overlooking sea. Beach is a short couple of hundred yard walk & coastal walk (for the fitter people) is on edge of site. Small shop selling basics.

Shower block - this seemed a contentious issue in some reviews - yes they need a good fettle & re-paint but the showers were more than hot enough. Maybe should have another shower block as we imagine that when the site is busy you may have to wait. We will be returning.

We stayed here from Friday to Sunday, site is lovely with a great beach and plenty walks, toilets were adequate if a bit dated. The shop is advertised as being licensed but when we went for a bottle of wine we were told they don't have a license. There is a shop about a mile away but had we known in advance we would have brought it with us. We will be back though and bring our wine next time

No complaints and only praise from my group (11 of us, half are pensioners, in a variety of units). Happy to reassure people that there's plenty of toilet paper (multiple rolls in the cubicles), and no smell from the drains. When I was having a shower the (male) manager called in at the door of the toilets - 'can I come in to clear up the grass?' as the cut grass gets walked in, unavoidably. He wiped the floor, did some other quick cleaning and was out. Yes, the toilet block is dated, but it was clean, freshly painted, and the showers were hot and free. We all thought 17 (for EHU) was good value for what we got. And the managers went out of their way to be helpful. Really quiet, and wonderful dark skies at night.

We love this campsite and have visited quite often as it's quite an informal site, laid back and next to a great beach. We visited over the Easter break and I have to say I was disappointed with the facilities. The ladies toilets were dirty and some of the cubicles had no toilet paper. They still have the same problem that if someone has a shower the whole place steams up it also makes the floor where the wash basins are very wet and slippy - there was a mop there for people to use. Outside of the toilets there was a really awful smell from the drains. This is the beginning of the season ?? It needs updating - a new facilities block in the 'tent' field would make a huge difference to this site.

We will go to this site again because of it's location.
