This is the first time here. What a lovely site, 2 sites in one and nice and quiet. Right near wsm. You need transport of some type if you leave the site. 5 mins away you can park up and get a bus into town. The owners are very friendly. The only down side is you need your own toilet roll and soap. If you like golf just a walk away I'll be back to this site as it has hard standing and very easy to find

We spent 2 nights at Gorselands over the Bank Holiday based on reviews on this site. What a treat. The site itself has almost 360 degree panoramic views which we thought might be a problem when pitching our tent in the breeze that was getting up when we arrived. We had a choice of pitches so opted for a little corner where we surrounded on 3 sides by gorse bushes to shelter us. The site was fairly level but we still slid about in the night. There were plenty of places where we could have pitched so I'm sure we could have found a more level site if we had wanted. We had a bonus of a picnic bench near our pitch and an area where our 2 children could kick a ball about without disturbing anyone.

The showers and toilets were dated but perfectly fine for our needs. Remember to stock up on 20p's for your shower. 2mins was fine but the water pressure was a little low (the cost of those panoramic views) so 4mins may have been better.

The site was easy to find and was only 11mins drive into WSM for everything it has to offer.

the owners were welcoming hosts and seemed to spend lots of time tending their campsite. They take pride in the site and this is a credit to them.

Generally a beautiful site with space for the kids to play and views to die for. We hope to return for another relaxing break in the future.

After travelling from Newquay, we needed somewhere to stay for the night as a break.

We were a group of 4 girls in our 20's with one tent and one car.

We rang to ask for prices and after a VERY reasonable price, we turned up 20 minutes later and were greeted on arrival by the man who owns Gorselands. After giving us a mini tour of the site, he showed us a beautiful pitch which was surrounded in bushes, to keep the wind down to a minimum and it definitely had the best view. (not too sure what the view was of, but it was lovely to look at. ) As we were putting the tent up, the couple came over with a really cute hand drawn map, which gave us great directions to the local chippy and Tesco Express. They also gave us the key to the bathrooms and a spare toilet roll. I think they could tell that we had completely forgot that we needed loo roll! It was very much appreciated.

Each toilet had a shower room attached to it, and were clean, simple and easy to use.

I, being the immature one of the group, really enjoyed the swings and tyre swing which was down the slope from our pitch, and the other girls were quite happy sitting on the grass with the chippy.

We all loved the site, and the couple that owned it and were talking about them all the way home back to Bolton. We didn't get to view the area as we were travelling home, ubt according to the map - it was quite close to the beach, and the chippy was only a five minute drive away.

Two of us are already planning on bringing our families back at some point. Excited already!

Highly Recommended. This site is a MUST. Couldn't Fault anything.

Spent a week here with car and caravan.

Lovely site with good views. However at 14 pounds a night plus 20p for a 2 minute shower I felt it was expensive.

You needed at least 4 minutes for the shower so for 2 of us that was an extra 80p a day.

There are only two showers / WC / wash hand basin which are rather old and not clean, cobwebs all over the place and bits of paper (kitchen role?) on the tiles.

No dishwashing facilities, but then again it is a CL

A nice isolated quiet site but not value for money.

A lovely, clean, well planned site! Beautifully mown, clearly designated spots, hedgerow gaps, clearly marked bays, greenery around were lovely, although the views as pre-reviewed were only in certain pitches! Everything you need for a stop over.

We are a family of 4 ( 2 adults, 2 children), don't think this is a place for children/families. No cycling, and children obviously to be 'seen and not heard' such a shame, when there were so many hedgerows for children to explore and enjoy. Wonderful opportunity to be the children we were, a generation ago! Such a shame!

There are 2 CL's on this site - CC is a smaller paddock type with spaces for 5 vans in a line. The C&CC CL is much more appealing - all grass standing pitches but each in little private spaces surrounded by shrubs and bushes.

The toilets / showers are old but functional - one small negative here - a sign clearly states they don't supply soap or toilet paper, shame as its a pain having to take your own over each time.

Site is very well kept and owners very friendly and helpful.

At £13 plus 20p per 2 minutes in the shower this cost us £15 for 1 night / 2 adults with hookup. Good value for money and only a few miles from Weston.

Its a very peaceful site and we will visit again.
