 Outstanding 3 Days, Park staff very helpful at all times,

This was our first outing with the motor home and we were impressed with the help from the wardens.

 Our first time to this site, on arrival our pitch number was changed, my reply was as site was quieter. We pitched up, one of the wardens came up to us and told us, there is a swimming club Mondayís and wed and he would get the families to park away from our pitch.

This was not acted on as I counted 17 vehicles parked some in front of our pitch and other pitches, some of the families crossed the pitches to get to their vehicles. The swimming club times was 5 to 9pm. The showers do get busy as the children have showers after their swim.

The pool is warm and inviting, not massive and annoying when you have people who just want to chat Iand take up half of the width of the pool, if you want to chat keep to the side.

The toilet block was ok but a deeper clean is needed, tithe toilet flush was poor it just did not flush the paper away. I used the cubicle with the sink next to the showers and the water was cold, I hurried to clean my teeth and left. Music is played in the toilets.

The showers are push button you have to keep pressing the button, the water was only warm, you cannot regulate the water. Underfloor heating in the showers did not feel any heat.

The pot wash was good the water very hot and music while you wash the pots.

The shop was quite basic I left my gravy mix at home but unfortunately they did not stock any.

The Bar come restaurant looked ok, we looked at the menu it was very basic, we decided not to eat or drink there.

The site is well kept but our pitch was muddy in hindsight we should of asked for another pitch.

The dog area is a little walk depending where you are pitched. Plenty of room for your dogs to run around.

The Wardens are friendly but very keen on everyone following the rules.

If you have a High vehicle you have to get one of the warden to open the gate, one way in and one way out no coming in or out the wrong way or else you will get told.

There is a little hut where you can find leaflets of the area and takeaway leaflets, you can get your food delivered but they are not allowed on site you have to meet delivery guy at the gate.

Great places to see from the site.

 Staff are brilliant and very helpful, great pool and facilities.

The only thing we found are the pitches are very close together.

It was great for young children and very dog friendly.

Excellent days out nearby.

Reviewer: Alline 1 review from this member

 Lovely, clean site. Swimming pool is tired though. It says no groups. But this goes for some and not others. We were told we couldn't pitch up near our friends but then we saw other groups around the site.

It really seemed like it was one rule for one and another rule for others.

 Have been here twice. Entrance is a little tricky as itís just off a dual carriageway. Staff always very helpful and site very clean. Bar is great and good fun ( need to check if open though).

Make sure you check your unit will fit on the pitch. A lot of pitches are quite small and hemmed in. It does say in ts and cs that annexes have to be pre approved for your awning.

I didnít enjoy it in the school holidays too close to everyone. Couldnít really hear road noise but the last time that we came the road was extremely busy and put us off going out for the day.

Pool was like a bath but enjoyable. Donít think we will visit again, only came a second time as it was convenient for friends.

Reviewer: Weaze3 1 review from this member

 The warden, Rod met us with the friendliest greeting, helped us park the van and even offered us a cable for the hook up of our was too short. When he saw that we had small children he also offered us an alternative pitch, right next to the playground so we could eat h them play.

The site and toilets were spotlessly clean and we booked the pool on arrival. They ate only allowing one family in the pool at a time so we had it to ourselves for the full 45 mins. It's the warmest pool I have ever been in - it felt like a bath.

The toilets are currently unisex which might bother some but this has been done to create a Vivid secure one way system so can't really complain.

Thanks for a fab weekend.
