 Stayed for the Epic event swim. Great little site on the lake.

Toilets and showers bearable and ok for a couple of nights.

Think there were large sinks in the menís possibly for washing up but didnít find a specific area for washing pots.

Not a problem for us as only stayed 1 night.

 It was a great location, and we had a great time staying there.

There were plenty of things to do and the facilities were clean and tidy.

The value for money wasn't what I was expecting but it was still good

Reviewer: Dadixo 1 review from this member

 Fab site, with perfect views.

It is quiet and unspoilt with a large choice areas to camp, with plenty of room.

A real bonus to have direct access to the lake.

Lovely safe environment for children.

Reviewer: Kathlo 1 review from this member

 Loved the location, especially the remoteness. Stepping out of the tent right onto the lakeside was perfect.

Facilities are very minimal but that suited us fine, and we loved that the site was uncrowded with no set pitches.

The staff were really friendly and helpful.

 Beautiful spot on the lake!

Stayed for one night, there was other families and campers spread out but was very peaceful. If your lucky you can pitch very close to the water or there are a few hard standing spots, the rest are grass.

Great for water sports, canoeing/ paddle boarding etc

Facilities are very basic but do the job, would definitely return!

Reviewer: Franklinfamily 1 review from this member

 Safe secure site with a fantastic view right next to the lake. Unpaved road to access but nothing too bad if you take it slowly.

Basic showers/toilet block which only had cold water when we visited - not sure if this is normal or just a blip.

Prompt response to a question about the toilets but due to social distancing we didn't see any site reps so canít comment on this.

We had the company of sheep on our last night which might have been due to someone leaving a gate open! Very quiet site.

Reviewer: Philip Tedder 1 review from this member

 Nice site.

Have 3.5 ton motorhome, told to use hard standing. Which I duly did reversed in front end sank up to the axel. Built on cow muck or similar, shale on plastic type sheet on exceptional soft ground. Good job some nice people helped me out by jacking it up and it digging out.

So be careful if you are going to use this site

 Lovely site with great lakeside views and peace and quiet.

A long walk for facilities and rubbish bins. Another tap would be a good idea.

But, location for views and quiet hard to beat

 What a great little off grid site this is.

We pitched right by the lake. Not even 6ft away from the water's edge

The weather was good but the lake was epic. We've already booked to go back next weekend.
