The location of the site is great - right at the bottom of Glenesk and a lovely riverside walk of about 2 miles to the village of Edzell where there are a couple of pubs and a Spar shop. Apart from slight noise from the occasional car passing it is a very peaceful and tranquil site. The welcome from the two ladies who appear to run the site was warm and helpful. The pitches are a variety of hard standing and “wild” pitches in the woods. Several pitches are by the side of the fishing loch (where, surprisingly, the usual midges didn’t seem to be a problem).

The downside was the toilet block…………it really lets the site down. Firstly - there was only one block for the whole site, which left quite a trek for those in the furthest away pitches. The building was very dated and with only 2 showers per gender, sadly inadequate - plus, having paid £20 a night for a pitch, I don’t expect to have to pay 20p for a shower !

This site has really great potential but is sadly let down by the toilet/shower block.

I probably would stay here again, if only for the location and the peace and quiet.

Arrived here in our hi-gear Corado 8 tent we were to find our own pitch as per note at reception, we toured around until we found one which was big enough, a few before that we told from another camper that the electric hook up not working.

The site itself has a lot of tree stumps that are covered in long grass which makes it harder for smaller tents the hard standing areas have weeds and moss on them and the toilet block could be doing with a good make over very dated.

The hot water at the dish washing not working. The site has potential but would need a lot of work done on the 6 months when closed. As other people say staff friendly and lovely walks near by.

Overall silly wee things could be done to improve the place, I have been on sites where it's the same cost but better facilities and only charge is for laundry not showers if going to charge for different things then then put money back into upkeep.

Great site, but could be so much better with some care, attention and investment. Sited round a small lochan, with mature trees and a rustic feel, the facilities are a bit care worn - toilets cold and dated, the recreation facilities need refreshed, and the trees could do with thinning - but the service is always good. Very quiet and peaceful, perhaps because of little to no phone reception, some wifi from the phone box at reception. Maybe a touch expensive for what it offers, but overall an enjoyable place to visit.

Stayed here for 4 nights during the Easter school holidays. We chose the park after reading the reviews and we were very happy with the site. We pitched up at the loch side and it was a lovely pitch, it was hard standing and we never had the correct pegs but we still managed to site the awning, the pitch was ample space for the van, awning and estate car. Toilet block was just across from us and as the reviews say it is not ultra modern but it was spotless and the shower was very good and 20p was enough for a good shower, plenty of room for clothes also. We all used the games room and played ping pong and pool. Also used the lounge for the tv and for the internet. The site is very good placed for some great walks and we went to corrie fee which we all enjoyed. Our boys are aged 8 and 11 and they loved their holiday, they really bonded with the family of ducks and the 10 ducklings. The staff are very friendly and helpful, we liked that it is a set price and not all the add ones. We will definitely be back to this site. We have been caravanning, motorhoming for nearly 12 years and the site suited us perfectly.

We had a 6 night stay at this lovely site. When we arrived we were told we could pitch where we wanted, we ended up on hardstanding (as the tent is rather large and would not fit properly on the tent pitch with hook up) but that was fine. The site owners are really welcoming and friendly. The toilet block is dated but well maintained and clean, showers are 20p which I thought was good value. In the reception area there's a tv, lovely view out over the fishing pond, pool table and ping pong. There is an inside washing up area in reception but no freezer for ice blocks although we managed without anyway. There are some lovely places to go walking in the area. We had a smashing meal at the local hotel too. ( The Panmure Arms).

Well we are just back from a 2 night stay at this beautiful little site. When we arrived we were told we could pitch where we wanted, only to stay away from certain pitches as they had a hookup for satellite tv. The site manageress was very welcoming and friendly. Once we had pitched our tent (in the thunder!) we want for a walk round the site to find all facilities. The toilet block is well maintained and clean, showers are 20p but who grudges that for a shower?? My kids are a bit big for the playpark but there was enough to keep younger kids happy. In the reception area there's a tv, lovely view out over the fishing pond, pool table and ping pong. We only went as far as Edzell to stock up on bread and milk but there's not much there but a really nice walk.

All in all a fantastic wee site which we are definitely going back to (possibly later this year).
