 The campsite was a base for us while visiting relatives. Enjoyed overall stay. Pub very friendly and served good food. Landlord very helpful.

Weather unfortunately was not the best, high winds and rain.

 8! EIGHT POUNDS! These are prices I was paying 25 years ago. It's a small site and mostly permanent statics but as a basic base for exploring the area you can't go wrong. No extras to pay (showers, electric).

There's no grassy play area but I was only using it as a base for walking.

The best bit? The pub it belongs to, A proper pub with amazing host that cares about food, beer and cider.

I'll be back.

 Very friendly reception and I felt very welcome. The pitches are behind the pub, largely occupied by caravans.

There are toilet and dishwashing facilities, which is nice.

A bit noisy from the busy street but I expected that given the location.

My only issue was that it was difficult to drive the tent pegs into the ground.

Nights stayed: 4 Travelling as:  Retired couple
Reviewer: 2oldcampers 2 reviews from this member

 The site has 20 pitches but 60% of these were occupied, apparently all year round, with touring vans being used as statics with tired and faded awnings and scruffy windbreaks serving as garden fencing. The available pitches showed no sign of recent mowing and the unkempt boundary hedging is to a height that frustrates the promise of countryside views.

The toilet block was frankly in an insanitary condition. It requires a deep clean followed by a plumber to replace the push taps in both the ladies and gents showers which presently each have a ludicrous web of plastic ties to permit operation. The push taps in the ladies variously have small to shocking leaks which flooded the worktops. An electricians attention is needed in both showers as the pull switches have no pulls. Of all the ceiling lights in the ladies and gents only one functions. The ladies are entirely in the dark!

On the plus side the price has only risen to a still modest 17 for the first night and 12 for all subsequent nights which includes electricity and hot water.

 We have been there for years as it's a cheap, friendly site with a fantastic pub that serves good food and beer.

If you are reviewing a site at least stay long enough to give an accurate and informative review.

Reviewer: Slasher51 1 review from this member

 Electric hookup, showers and toilets all for 11 a night, what's not to like. Pub serving Real Ale and good food, another bonus. Family running the pub were very friendly. Will return without a doubt.

Reviewer: RickScatchard 5 reviews from this member

 Stayed for four nights. This is a basic site but none the worse for it. 44 for four nights cannot be bad. Showers hot and no extra cost. Great base for walkers and cyclists. Back of a pub which serves good food, ale and reasonable price. Family who run it are friendly and characters. This was our second visit and we would stay again.

Reviewer: Braydon0902 1 review from this member

 Booked this site for the wife's birthday with our friends. What a weekend we had. We had good food in the horse and jockey, locals were very nice, landlord and staff great laugh. Wife and friends had the best time. For once we relaxed, drank loads, eat very heartily. Wish to say thanks folks for making the 4 of us very welcome. See you soon for more of the same if you lot can stand the pace. Thanks again.

 Stayed for 5 nights. Nice informal approach of owners as they trust you. Landlord told me to pay anytime. Ate in pub first night; good food, good beer, reasonably priced. Good handy location. This is a basic site but none the worse for it - 5 nights for 55 cannot be complained at. Water was hot in the showers (1 for males, 1 for females). The family are friendly and helpful and when I raised a couple of points with him, he did not try to argue the case. Rubbish management and the cleaning of the toilets could be improved.

Verdict: a good friendly site, very reasonably priced.

We are a mature couple and would have no hesitation in staying there again.

Reviewer: Fonant 9 reviews from this member

 Friendly welcome on arrival, but sadly we hadn't realised that they don't serve food on a Monday evening. The only nearish pub serving food was busy because it was half-term, so we cooked in the van instead.

Nice views from the campsite field in Winter when the trees and bushes are free of leaves. Lots of electric hook-up points, and we parked at the edge of the tarmac central area to avoid the potentially-muddy grass.

Toilet block is functional but unheated, and, perhaps because it was the off-season, hadn't been cleaned for a while so there was spider dirt and dust in the basins. Easily fixed with a quick wipe, though. Good value at 15 for the night including hook-up.
