 Great site around a small lake near Weston Super Mare. Two pubs and a cafe very local to site.

There is also a shop in Uphill for newspapers. Wifi and TV reception is not too good due to location.

Nice walks to Weston and Blean if you need it also cycling if its your thing. Good for us motorhomers to pitch up.

There is now a new washblock with unisex cubicles and a washing up area. They were still being completed when we were there. They are much nicer than the old block, but the hanging hooks are a bit small and we found the floors wet from showers.

They ventilation could be better

 A lovely peaceful site, Excellent staff service, very welcoming.

The grounds are well maintained.

A Great base for exploring the area.

We will visit again. Look forward to using the new shower block :)

 Just back from a week at uphill marina and the site really has two sides to it!

Then campsite part where you park around the lake it fantastic mainly level hardstanding pitches so with a grass area grass around the lake and the pitches is kept cut by the robot lawnmower that goes abiut it's business daily.

There's a fantastic cafe literally just outside of the main electric gate the beach is 5 minute walk and there's two pubs within a 10 minute wa both dog friendly and serves decent pub food.

NOW for the other side of the campsite: the toilet and shower blocks were inadequate for the number of pitch and also possibly the worse we have come across and really do let the site down massively. You can't use them at all between 10:30pm and 7am for some unknown reason that wasn't explained to us at all. Neither was that our pitch was the light coloured stones and the "footpath" was the dark so we had to move of windbreaker in about 3 inches which then left no room to have the awning out!

It really does pain me to leave negative comments as I was talking to the owner and she was really nice but these issues really need addressing soon as the facilities really do let what could be a fantastic site.

I have based my scores on the current facilities of the site.

 Lovely site but spoilt by facilities that let it down badly.

We had stayed here about 6 years ago, in the winter, prior to the new owners, and had hoped they'd have updated the facilities. A bit disappointed to be honest because they have obviously spent money elsewhere and for us (and lots of others we spoke to) the facilities are an important part of the experience.

That being said the view from most of the pitches is stunning (depending on where you're pitched). Our pitch was large with a great view, but I think we would've been disappointed had we been on number 5 or 6.

No recycling on site, just 2 large bins near the entrance.

The site felt very secure with electric gates at the entrance.

Easy, friendly check in as they text you the gate code on the morning of your arrival and you've also paid in full by then.

The Boathouse cafe/bistro (doggie friendly) is just outside the site and worth a visit. We had breakfast there one morning and it was lovely and not over priced.

2 pubs in the village. We only had a drink in one of them, The Ship.

Steep walk up to the church but well worth it for the views.

Nature reserve and walk to Brean directly from the site too.

Easy walk into Weston-super-Mare, along the beach, and beyond.

We would love to go back sometime, but probably not until the facilities have been renewed.

 Stunnng campsite. Such beautiful views. Peaceful & relaxed.

Toilet/shower blocks clean & tidy.

Close to local shop & pubs. Bar/bistro next door. Only wish it had been open longer !

Not too far from Weston.

Will revisit for longer next time !

 What a brilliant site. Booking recommended as a few of the people I spoke to only managed to get in due to cancellation.

You can choose your pitch when you book but was told that they may not be doing that in future.

We were in pitch 5 which is nice and shaded thank goodness as needed it in the hot days. Not good for telly lovers as no signal but that didnít bother us.

Spotless facilities.

People who run it are lovely. As said on other reviews good bus service just at end of road of site.

Great cafe/Bistro just outside gates. Nice to stop on way back on hot days to have a lovely homemade ice cream or milk shake.

Itís also doggie friendly.

The site also sells ice cream and lollies.

Would highly recommend this site.

Lovely views of the sunsets and very quiet

 Lovely, quiet site. All pitches looking on to the small lake.

5 minutes from huge sandy beach, 20 minute amble along beach to Weston prom. With all its attractions.

Also nice country walks behind site.

N. B. Due to the lake I wouldn't consider the site as child friendly and the last 800 yds or so of the approach road could be awkward if towing a large unit due to parked vehicles reducing the usable width of the road.

 Spent 3 nights at uphill. Marina. Directions to the site along with how to access the site were fine.

Pitch was reasonably sized, with EHU, and all pitches face the lake. Showers are basic but are clean, could do with a stool in the cubicle.

Two pubs in the village, both serve food. Nice walk from the site along the beach to Weston, also a bus stop at the site entrance.

Good walks from the site.

Nice peaceful site.

 Great little site around a small lake, near Weston-Super-Mare.

Facilities are okay, but the green toilet unit could be improved/modernised. It has no ventilation and can be smelly at times. The shower and toilet block at the entrance better but not so conveniently placed.

That said the site has also had new owners during the last couple of years. They do seem to be slowly improving things. They also run the marina which has been tidied and upgraded.

There are two pubs, a shop and a restaurant a short walk away. You are also very near the beach and can walk to Weston Super Mare easily.
