Date of Visit: April 2007 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Firruk 18 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for one night as a "try out" for our new motorhome. Looking at other reviews quite a lot of peolpe use this site for this purpose.
The site is well looked after and the pitches are large and well serviced. My only gripe is that it does feel very regimented with all the pitches in rigid straight lines and high hedges between each line.
The showers and toilets were spotless and well heated at all times (even had piped music). Hot water was genuinely hot.
Staff and fellow campers were really friendly and extremely helpful.
The site used to have a shop which is now closed and it would be good if it was to reopen. Having said that there is a garage with a shop just up the road and the site sits next to a huge Wyvale garden centre complete with cafe.
If you are looking for pubs tan its only about 20 minutes stroll down to Croston village where there are 5 on offer with most doing decent food and real ale.

 Price to pitch your tent was very reasonable at £11 Per night. Excellent Camp Site, amenities very clean. A deposit of £20 is required for the toilets and showers which is refundable on leaving.
Large playground for the kids, horses and sheep in the field and a few bars and restaurants for the adults. There is wacky warehouse across the road from the campsite but the food is not very good. There was a little noise from the hotel which is situated at the side of the field but only lasted until 1am.

I would recommend this campsite to anyone especially families. I will definitely be returning this year.

 Nice site, stayed 2 nights at easter - although they made us pay for 3 nights minimum,even thogh the tent area was only 5% full!

Toilets fine - washing up area fine.

Could do with a shop-we had to go to a garage for supplies.

Try the Rose and Crown pub-half mile away - great little place.

Water tasted funny - not our water carrier, we washed that out before we went.

I would go back and would give the site seven out of ten

Reviewer: Milomc72 15 reviews from this member

 We went to this site to "try out" our caravan and was pleasantly surprised.  What a quiet and peaceful site.  Though a bit regimental (all pitches in lines) the pitches were spacious, the showers and washing up areas were clean and the hot water was definitely hot (if not dangerously hot at times). A good play area for the kids and a huge field for walking the dog.  Very clean throughout, and if we wanted somewhere to just "hang out" we would go there again.

Reviewer: Laura31 20 reviews from this member

 We visited this site to try out our new caravan. As soon as we were arrived we had offers of help to push us into our pitch which was much appreciated. The warden was very patient when we kept tripping the electric. Our children liked the play area although they did come back rather muddy. The showers and loo block were very clean with lots of hot water.

We went to the nearby Wacky Warehouse pub for our evening meal. The food was OK, but not great. Lots of people seemed to be complaining about their meals and there was a bit of a wait. It was fairly typical of my experience of these types of pubs. We did not really visit to see the surrounding area but I am aware that Botany Bay, Martin Mere and Camelot are all fairly near by. It is a pleasant site and I would consider staying there again.

 I started using this site this year after finding out that both royal umpire and riverside holiday park are owned by the same company.  I have been very happy going to riverside for the a number of years and thought I would try the umpire.  The site is lovely, play area was great and the showers and toilets are 1st class. I have stayed here in a tent and caravan and the staff are really nice, but there was no shop on site. This was not really a problem to us.

 Just came back after another great weekend at the Umpire, been to this site regular over the past two years and all I can say is it perfect, never had any problems staff are A1, other campers always chatty and friendly.  Would rec' this site to anyone.

Reviewer: Gaztop 2 reviews from this member

 Have been to this site many times and have enjoyed every stay.  Toilets and showers are 1st class, as are the friendly staff.  We try to go every weekend as it is only a short drive away.
The pub outside the camp site has a 2 4 1 offer on food all the time.  We have also found that other campers are also very friendly.  I can definitely rate this site as 1st class for campers, the large rally field has loads of space so you are not to close to other campers, also very dog friendly

 We stayed for 1 night and had a really good time, the toilets and showers were clean, the washing up facilities were good and we were planning on going back for longer, but unfortunately they do not offer ehu for tents, the only minus point was the wasps, there were hundreds of them, and cooking was a bit of a nightmare, but would go back for a night again and camp a little further away from the toilet block to see if that eliminates the wasp problem.

Reviewer: ROBBIEBOBBY 2 reviews from this member

 Just returned from a 2 night break. Site is immaculate, toilet facilities are spotless.Has large play area and football pitch which my children aged 6 & 4 loved. The only downside is that there is no shop on site, which would be a big plus, other than that it's a great site and we shall be returning soon.
