Having read the reviews we were looking forward to 2 nights staying with our two young children in our tent.

We arrived and were directed to the large field behind the lakes where it was up to us to find an area. The field is flat and well kept, we took as much room as needed to pitch the tent.

The toilet blocks are still not finished as per the other reviews and very dark, especially in the ladies. There was limited hot water for showers and not very much water pressure if others were in the showers. They are clean but not very welcoming especially for families as the shower rooms are small.

Disappointingly there was only cold water at the wash up point and big signs saying not to take water from the bathrooms.

Value for money for us is important and partly the reason we choose to camp so for us this site did not live up to expectations.

Just spent two nights at this site starting on Good Friday, the glorious Easter weekend.

Pitched in the rally field which was level, quiet, and the lakes which were well stocked with fish were only a minute away. Not that I fish.

A couple of negatives were that the new toilet block which earlier reviews speak about is still not finished, so you are stepping out of the shower on to a dusty concrete floor as there were no boards or anything like that to stand on. You cannot wash up there either, but the water was hot and free!

The other negative was that on a Bank holiday weekend, the only bin which is next to the Cafe was overflowing and bags were scattered around it by early Saturday evening, which would no doubt encourage vermin.

Overall an 'up and coming' basic site that is good value and has plenty of space. Oh and ice creams were only 50p!

Spent just 1 night here, but wish it could have been more. Lovely quiet site, very relaxed and friendly owners. They have almost completed the toilet/shower block rebuild (should be complete in a couple of weeks). The shower is free while the rebuild is on going. There is also a cafe where you can get a breakfast. Nice level pitches separated by small conifer/fir type trees to give you that feeling of having your own area. Funny to watch the chickens roaming around the site, as they all have their own personality. We will be back !

Just had 4 days here very pleasant site very quiet and peaceful, a bit on the wet side but then again it was Feb/march. Will be going again. Staff rebuilding toilet and shower block, should be ready very soon but the set up they do have is very clean and tidy. Staff very friendly and helpful, just watch for the white cockerel when you are fishing as he likes top kits from poles lol

While looking in the Leicestershire area for good cheap caravan park I stumbled across this one. Very very friendly owners Paul and Karen welcomed me on site walked me around to show me everything that I may need to know, this site had everything that I needed most importantly the peace and quiet I needed.

I booked in for 2 nights and during day one booked an extra two days and even considering another two days.

The site is split in to separate area's all offering privacy and space the nothing to do bit as I don't fish was just what I needed. I walked, I sat doing nothing, ate and slept, even had time to fix a few things on caravan.

The toilet block is basic but serves its purpose.As does the showers .20p for 5 mins 40p is more than enough unless you want to stay in all day.

This really is a perfect location and even though there are plenty of kids staying on site I've not been disturbed once. I will be using this site lots in the future

We stayed here during the Godiva festival weekend in Coventry. It is approx 20-30 minutes away from Coventry town centre and in easy access of other cities due to proximity of motorways.

The site was divided into an area for tents which was opposite the fishing lakes and an area for caravans which was very close to the entrance. The weekend we stayed there were not many tents there poss 5-6 and so we were spaced quite far apart from everyone, it was lovely and quiet and the walks around the lake for our elderly dog were perfect! They were having 'fish off's' the weekend we were there and so there were fishermen arriving at about 8am but they in no way awoke us or disturbed us. As it is primarily a fishing site the small shop/cafe on site sold mostly bait and bacon sandwiches :)

There were 2 toilets and showers for females (one beig disabled accessible) and one for the fellas. The showers were 20pence for 5 minutes and charging is an excellent way to be green as they are on a water meter and request water is not wasted. 40pence was more than enough to get the shampoo out of my hair which is pretty long, and have time left over!

Also for those who care the showers were nice and powerful! As previous reviews have said the facilities are somewhat basic, but this was right up our street :) I never had to queue for a toilet or shower even though there were several other women on site. I imagine most people in caravans had their own facilities anyway so these were more for the fishermans and campers I think!

The owners were really friendly. I was somewhat wary about bringing our dog as a previous review said that their dogs had roamed free around the site. However we found that their dogs were always on leads and apart from once did not see any dog poo around the site. The site was clean and apart from one lot of people everyone operated by a 'leave no trace' policy!

It was a short drive to the nearest village where there were a couple of pubs, which we did not try. The post office was also a second hand book store and a mini shop, with a mishmash of consumables on sale.

I think this is one of the nicer sites I have stayed on. It was peaceful and the surrounding countryside beautiful. There were a couple of hens and cats down by the reception giving it a nice rural feel.

There were very few children on site possibly due to the lack of play areas / facilities and although this was right up our street, others with children might want to consider this. The cost for 2 adults and a dog in a 4 man tent for 2 nights was 24 which we thought a pretty good bargain. On the second day of the festival we didn't even bother going but just hung out on the site and relaxed
