In a bid to try and locate a perect campsite for me and my family to visit next year I have been doing a lot of review reading. Also reading recent posts the campsite Nantcol has been mentioned and when I read the reviews on this wesbite it's voted in the Top 5 sites by Cotswold Outdoor. Which got me thinking, Is there a 'Perfect' campsite and if so what is yours?

ps. I know that perfection is very subjectional.

Sorry, but firstly no children. Then no road noise.

Back to nature sites do it for me. BBQ and camp fires prefered, but only in moderation. No bonfires. (Trust me I've seen some). Nice views (Lake District would do) Basic faclities are fine, I don't require huge toilet/shower blocks. For it to be quiet after eleven PM through to eight AM. I expect people to be out and about before then, but not playing football and shouting at each other from one end of the camp site to the other. I don't mind children, although I never was one myself. I was born a grumpy old man.

So to sum up, peace and quiet with nice views.

Canvas tent, paraffin light, petrol stove. Heaven
I'd rather be kayaking.
Spent up, not pent up, just had my new tent up.

As the parent of 3, I have to agree with you. My perfect campsite is an Adults only with just me and the mrs and peace and quiet. I enjoy family camping too, but perfection is being a just a couple now and again.

Visit Llandrindod Wells! Great scenery, walks, cycling, red kites. Ideal for exploring Mid Wales.

Our ideal campsite would be.

Lovely views.
Clean facilities. (Don't mind basic)
Very quiet after 11pm to 8am.
When we are the only ones on site - perfection.
Preferably out of school holidays.
No bars/entertainment.

Wish I could go camping more and not have to work for a living!!!

Family friendly, good entertainment and facilties, decent play park for the kids and great location. Two of our faves for these reasons are Haven Greenacres at Porthmadog and Hoburne Bashley Park.

My idea of a "perfect" campsite would be as follows:

Clean and tidy shower/toilet blocks

Doggie friendly camp, with plenty of off - lead exercise areas for the dogs

Cafe/Restaurant on site that allowed dogs in

Reasonably priced and well stocked shop

A good level of security

Well maintained pitches

Site well cared for and kept clean

Noise level kept down after 11pm

No young children (Sorry to those of you with youngsters) preferably Adult only

Mine would be heated shower rooms & pitches in a circle with a play park for the kiddies in the middle. I have 5 kids & always tell them to keep the noise down & be respectful of neighbouring campers. I totally understand though why some would want adult only sites. Last week we came back from a site near Exeter ( it's not on here he doesn't advertise) & we couldn't believe that some parents were letting their kids carry on the way they were in the park. They were singing the same song about farts over & over again really loudly. Even my kids were telling them to shut up! They're parents were setting up tents & totally ignoring them as if they couldn't hear them. Even though they were just metres away! I love hearing kids playing & having fun but these kids were just damn right rude.
