Nights stayed: 3 Travelling as:  Family with young children
Reviewer: Juliesinbad65 1 review from this member

 Beautiful location, no traffic noise whatsoever,

Bring your own food as shop is very limited,

Facilities dated and grubby, need a thorough clean in every block,

The swimming pool would be a definite return, but facilities doubtful

 Friendly welcome, clean facilities, great remote forest campsite.

We ran from the site but would highly recommend bringing bikes too!

Lovely wild forest feel.

Reviewer: Pryors 7 reviews from this member

 Full disclosure : we stayed during the 2022 heatwave. No green grass to be seen. Shade was hit & miss for the pitches.

Very hard ground with sandy surface made it tricky to get our tent pegs in.

Pool water was cloudy, which seemed off-putting but we had no issues.

Ablutions block was cleaned regularly but could use some updating or repairs - a couple of washing-up sinks didn't work, dryer & washing machine both partly out of action during our stay.

Shop was small and didn't always have bread & milk (the very basics).

I would recommend this campsite only for a short break (3/4 nights) rather than for the fortnight we stayed.

 All in all very nice,

Unfortunately the showers were cold late afternoon,

The outdoor swimming pool is a great little touch especially as it was very warm when we stayed.

Reviewer: Majorenglish 1 review from this member

 Just fabulous setting and congratulations to the team for keeping it that way. Massive pitch making it very easy to set up.

Totally dog and children friendly with pitches in adult areas. Wonderful walks through forest paths and of beat tracks on site shop open all day for those essentials and a lovely bar and restaurant (food great)

All in all a first class idyllic location for all dog lovers and ramblers and also fantastic site for children as you can pitch around the park next to swimming pool making it easy to maintain security of children always playing in sight

 We wanted somewhere local to try our caravan for the first time.

We loved the site - beautiful forest with great walks, pool and the food vans are a brilliant idea.

My only criticism would be the road into the site. It is full of potholes and very bumpy. 5mph tops if you want to keep your wheels!

 Bear in mind that facilities were not yet fully open due to Covid-19 requirements. That said, the staff were very friendly and helpful and we were made to feel welcome.

The food choice was limited but we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The track through the forest was far better than some previous reviews had suggested that they might be.

There are certainly innumerable trails nearby and the going was pretty easy. We'll be back

 Lovely location the roadway approach could do with some attention very dusty and bumpy mile long track leading to site.

Well run, friendly staff, good amenities

Would definitely recommend we have rebooked for a later date

Reviewer: Arlet1 1 review from this member

 Stayed here for 3 nights with electric.

We stayed here with friends n we both have boys 8/9yrs old and a 1yr old baby. Boys like the park.


We were put in a double pitch in Ash which was great (lots of space).

Site is clean.

We were met by a young guy (tied Dark wavy hair) who was very friendly, polite n helpful.

Plenty of walks surrounding the campsite.

Kids enjoyed the park.


Road to the campsite is is BAD. 5mph if you don't want to damage your car. Potholes needs filling!

Amenities could be updated!

Some of the staffs could smile and be more friendly.

Reviewer: Dazscuba 2 reviews from this member

 Booked this site as a last minute due to Anglesey catching the end of the ISA hurricane.

On site facilities are good and you get a great welcome from the staff at reception. Shown to our pitch and the site explained.

The pitches are set in small fields boarded by trees and bushes so it does not seem too big even though it is. The site is in the middle of a Forrest so some great walks with the dog.

Canít comment on the pool as it closed the day before. Pub open Friday and Saturday while we were there.

Would I go back? Probably not due to the very very bad and potholes road which is about 3/4 mile long. This shakes the begibers out of the caravan and is sure to do some damage.
