 First - time at this site and the last ! given verbal details of the place for tents to pitch my tent which I never found ! so went back to site office and was told I can pitch my tent nearer to gate if could fined a place, so I drove around to have a look !

A untidy site come building site,

I later found out that I had picked up a screw in a tier & £70 to replace.

No soap or Toilet paper in Toilets, but luck had it, I had I my own.

I had booked two nights but had it by then !

 I enquired here using the form on this page and got a swift response letting me know they had space and the price of £15.50 for me and my dog in the campervan without hookup. I phoned to pay and all was dealt with swiftly and was given the gate code and told to pitch where I liked, and to follow the path under the bypass if I wanted a Riverside pitch.

As I got closer to the site, all I could see was what appeared to be a caravan graveyard from the road, my heart sank and I was not impressed. I persevered as I had already paid, maybe that is why they like payment before arrival, as many people might well just turn around and go elsewhere.

I entered the site and drove past hundreds of seasonal type pitches. , statics, diggers, shipping containers, rubbish, scrap and more, It really was quite off-putting.

I continued through under the underpass and started to look for riverside pitches. There were not many as they were all taken by statics, or long term caravans. I did in the end find a lovely spot that was rock solid, so I am not sure you would get an awning up, but as I was only there one night it did not matter.

The pitch overlooked the lake / pond / river and it had some swans, ducks, geese etc and was actually quite pleasant to look at. I pitched facing this and was lovely to wake up too.

I was worried about noise, however the majority of the seasonal pitches and statics were not occupied and made for a very quiet and relaxing night, In the summer it may be a different story.

I did not find the toilets or showers, so cannot comment on them. I also did not locate the bins, fresh water tap, waste disposal etc. This was mainly because I was not given a welcome or site plan, etc. However I am sure they would have been quite central and had I needed them there were plenty of people wandering around eth site to ask.

There was a burger bar but I did not venture up there so I am not sure if it was open. There is also a club house, according to other reviews, but I did not find or use this.

In the end the site was fine for what I needed, a stop over for a sleep, although there was some road noise from the nearby A6, however in the campervan this did not affect me at all.

I would not return, unless on a single sex break with friends where you wan to be noisy, have a fire, stay up late, etc. In which case I would come back time and time again.

Reviewer: Somerset Girl 1 review from this member

 Very run down and untidy. Most units seem to be permanent residents. No hard standing pitches so not suitable for a motor home especially if itís a bit wet.

The busy A6 dual carriageway cuts through the site and is very noisy. No signage or information about services.

Doesnít seem to have a warden on site, merely a person in a small booth at the entrance whoís not often there.

Itís cheap for a reason. Also there are no pictures on their website which is telling. And their website booking system is flaky.

Could be a nice site with some effort. The river and canal could be a real advantage but needs a lot of work.

 Family-friendly site.

Recently has added a food bar with a great variety of choices on the menu and open at weekends till 10 pm so we never cooked!

Everyone was very helpful and friendly.

I Will definitely re-visit this place.

Reviewer: Paullong 32 reviews from this member

 This is mostly contractors and seasonal pitches so it's difficult to find a half decent pitch. Not very well looked after.

Toilets are disgusting and with no loo roll (didn't try the ones by the club house because they were at least 400m away).

No map to find facilities like Elsan point or water. Some ground is dangerous with rocks sticking up and some hidden by grass that will scrape the bottom of your car.

Bins were overflowing. With some TLC and separating seasonal pitches / contractors from holiday pitches, rules about condition of accommodation and a new toilet block, this could be a nice site.

Reviewer: Ruskincat 1 review from this member

 We had a quiet night, but would not return to this site, itís a mess. Absolutely no signage of where things are and it looks rough.

Obviously people live there all the time and run businesses from there as well. Parts of it look like a scrap yard.

The A6 runs along side it as well so bit noisy at rush hour.

On plus side a lovely pub about ten minutes walk away down the towpath

 Toilets so clean! I was worried when reading other reviews but theyíre absolutely fine.

We had the best time with a whole field to ourselves.

Price is great and if youíre wanting to be left on your own itís perfect.

 Myself, my partner weíre really looking forward to a nice relaxing long bank holiday weekend.

This was far from what we wanted!

The site was horrendous! Would not recommend to anyone!

The whole place is just very odd! No kind of security, had no idea where to check in, when I eventually did find someone they didnít check anything!

Took us half an hour to find a electric hook up which was an absolute waste of money, did not work!

The toilets / showers / washing up area were disgusting! NO lights! NO loo roll! NO soap! I totally get that a camp site is not going to be glam however you expect the essentials especially with COVID! luckily I took my own loo roll!

There was rubbish EVERYWHERE! It was a DUMP!

The nicest part was sitting in our tent with our own things and our own company!

We never slept the whole night! So roudy! Massive group of 30-40 at top of the field who were shouting running about, screaming! We had a couple of men next to us in a caravan running about. When this all started to settle down around 2. 30am, loads of building site works started (chucking Metal) for at-least an hour and half!

We booked for 2 nights, woke up the 1st morning around 7. 30 after 2 hours sleep packed up and left! We couldnít do it any longer!

We didnít want to ruin our whole weekend!

Just such a shame this place has the potential to be such a beautiful place!
