Just returned from an overnight here, and will definitely return. Excellent location, with bus stop and shops on the doorstep, the coast path 100 metres away and the Jolly Sailors pub also a short walk down the road (via pavement).

Facilities amongst the best I've encountered: warm and welcoming wet rooms, with shower, basin and loo all together. Complete with loo roll, soap dispenser, paper towels and even a hair drier. Refreshingly there seemed to be no added charges (dogs, WiFi, awnings) either. Friendly staff, ample pitches and decent views completed picture.

My only gripe is that the website is silent on pricing! A strange and unwelcome omission as it means you have to contact the site to get any idea of potential cost. If they sorted that, would get a 10/10.

Good location on coast & close to bus stop for excellent Coasthopper bus service. Good for families with large tents but almost totally unsuitable for lightweight campers (like us) travelling by bike with small tent etc transported by bike trailer.

Absolutely nowhere near pitch to lean the bikes while unloading - fortunately it was dry so dumping everything on the ground was OK.

New shower block has toilet/shower/washbasin in each cubicle - great for families but frequently there was a queue at peak times. You're occupying a toilet even if you're only cleaning your teeth!

Even bearing in mind the so called 'green traveller discount' this was a very expensive site compared to others as there seems to be a set price regardless of whether you have a two man tent with bikes or huge tent and two cars. Wouldn't mind if we got large pitch but there were actually 3 lightweights on the same size pitch as an adjacent tent that looked bigger than our house!

On arrival, we had to give names, address, mobile number & email address in order to register & were spoken to like children by one member of staff who seemed to think we needed step by step instructions on how to recycle our waste. Most campsites are happy with a name and address.

This campsite needs to pay more than lip service to 'green travellers' - the provision of a few picnic benches near 'lightweight' area, to lean bikes at temporarily & sit to eat would be a significant (& relatively inexpensive) improvement.

Please note that as of October 2016 this site is under new management. Various improvements are being made to the site, including a new shower and toilet facilities which is under construction, along with a new wifi system. Electric hook-ups are coming in January 2017, and a load of new trees and hedges are being planted in early February 2017.

We stayed for a Saturday night on a weekend trip to the seaside. The campside is located in an easy to find location and has a few places such a a pub within walking distance.

It was relatively quiet during our stay so we had lots of space and no queues for any of the facilities. The toilet and shower block were nice, clean and modern.

We struggled a little to connect to advertised wifi but luckily our Bumble Camper had its own wifi so not a problem for us.

BBQs are allowed so we had a lovely evening cooking food.

Overall, a clean an organised campsite. Great for campervans.

Stayed overnight. We were in the upper paddock near the loos and showers. Staff were fine with us (we were the only tent campers!). Facilities were clean and tidy, no queues obviously! the ground is hard and flinty, but I knew that beforehand and I took rock pegs. Levelish pitches. Very ordered, so notices for everything! keeping children quiet in mornings etc. Did amuse us that campfires arn`t allowed but okay in a yurt/tepee. Cafe next door lovely. This is a posh area though= posh prices. Nice pubs in walking distance, stunning coastline. Wouldn`t like to think how busy the loos and showers get when busy though.

Just had first visit to this campsite. Accidentally but happily our visit coincided with a local pub beer and music festival which proved to be really fun and very popular. The bands were of a surprising quality considering the size of the festival as well.

Back to the campsite.

The site was clean, well organised and well fitted out and the promised quiet after 10pm was fulfilled in spite of the return of the festival goers late at night. Many previous reviews complain of an inadequate amount of loos/showers. We did not find this to be a problem even though the site was full due to the festival.

The pitches are flat and of a decent size but if you want an easy going, wilder feel to your camping, this site is not for you. It had an ordered feel, with very frequent 'recce' rounds by one of the staff members. There are notices threatening zero tolerance to loud noise after ten and parents are requested not to let their kids play noisily early in the morning. All this was fine by us though.

The local shops are great and the surrounding area stunning. I wish we could have stayed longer to explore more. We plan to return and I think the festival will become a regular for us.

The only real problem we experienced has been mentioned in previous reviews. The ground was very hard with a really thin top soil. Several of our outwell pegs were bent when we put the tent up which has never happened before. Fortunately the campsite shop sold metal tent pegs which helped. However even these were difficult to get in and on our final morning the wind got up and ripped the guy ropes and pegs out whist I was in the tent and it collapsed on me! Had a few claustrophobic moments until I was liberated! Next time we will take really good metal pegs and a hardcore mallet!
