 An excellent place to stay, and very well maintained.

We'll book again next season.

I think this site will take a lot of beating.

I honestly can't find anything to complain about regarding the site.

 This is our second time staying here. Since we stayed last year they have built a state of the art toilet/shower/facilities block which is more central.

We had a lovely stay right next to cherry pond. We will be coming back again.

The only thing that marks the site down is the shop is at the entrance which is a walk up a long drive.

 This site is in a really beautiful location, and is set out really well & was easy to find. Loved all the lakes, even though we don't fish ourselves.

Very peaceful except for the Saturday night when some loudish music went on until 11. 15 although it is supposed to be quiet after 10pm. Not too much of a problem though.

The wardens and reception staff are excellent, all very helpful and pleasant. There is a takeaway on site at the weekends which looked and smelled very good, but we didn't use it as we were staying as a base to visit relatives nearby.

The toilets and showers let the site down in our opinion, the facilities were cleaned but are quite old so look shabby. We booked near to the disabled facilities but once we'd arrived discovered that this consists of a disabled toilet only.

My husband says that the toilet in there is quite low so not comfortable if you have trouble getting up or down.

There was no disabled shower and the gents shower cubicles have no seat in them, (the ladies did have seats) again making it uncomfortable for disabled guests who can't stand for long.

2 out of the 4 showers had problems, one the water dribbled out and the other had a broken lock.

That is the only reason we've marked the site as 7/10.

 Large Pitches. Toilets and showers are clean, and cleaned. Its a tranquil site, only let down by the peeps on it.

Evenings are quiet and great for a relax away from the world.

Had great time and will book again.

No way peeps can moan about facilities.

 What a great campsite. We had a pitch next to Cherry pond. The site is very clean and tidy. The on site warden is really friendly. There are toilets and showers. The showers are free and warm, but be careful to draw the curtain before you turn on the shower to keep your clothes dry. The site is a good size with four fishing ponds and two children’s play areas. There is a takeaway open on Friday and Saturday nights. There is also a snack bar where you can get breakfasts and snacks. The only niggle we had was that the shop is by the entrance which is a little walk up bank.

 Friendly staff, pitches are a good size, 2 play areas which show that a fair amount of money had been spent on them at some stage, but now sadly shows signs of wear and tear on some items with broken elements chopped out.

Found it rather odd that the washing up facilities are within the toilet blocks as opposed to outside, sufficient sinks and hot water.

The showers that I used were of the electric domestic type, good water flow and temperature. Shower stalls were a bit cramped, and had to change / dry-off in the communal area.

Found the toilets a bit disappointing, rather dated, floors not noticeably cleaned during or stay. It was a dry weekend, yet dried muddy footprints present throughout the stay, lack of sinks for having a wash, teeth brushing, etc. Only the 3 hand basins in the loos.

All in all a fair campsite, but a bit overpriced considering the toilet / shower blocks, or have I just been spoilt on other sites ?

 Just returned from a fabulous weekend at Pillaton Farm. We stayed in our folding camper, with EHU on pitch 19 - so we could supervise the children on the football pitch from our deck chairs :0)

On arrival, staff at the reception were friendly and helpful. Once onto the actual site Karen, one of the wardens, was really helpful, showed us to our pitch and told us where everything was.

All pitches were pristine, generous and marked out. The grass was lovely and short. The pitches next to 19 (15 & 17) are no longer grass but black gravel and would be ideal for larger motorhomes or RVs.

We only used the toilets and showers along from pitch 19, but they were always spotlessly clean. The showers were warm, the temperature could be adjusted and the shower head taken off the post if needed. Each shower opened onto the communal changing area, with a bench and lots of hooks - ideal if you have children and for keeping your things dry. I am told the other shower area has individual changing areas attached to each shower and push button not adjustable temperature showers. The showers also had free lockers just outside. I did not find anywhere to plug in a hairdryer or straighteners, but being on EHU this did not matter for us.

Behind the shower/toilet block was also a vending machine area with a freezer for freezer packs.

The take away was a real bonus - 5 star hygiene rating, lots of choice and open at useful times.

The pitch and park kept my two boys 12 and 9 entertained all weekend. I will say that both my boys are strong swimmers and even though they were given their boundaries before we got to the campsite I am confident that had they have fallen into the lakes, they could have got out. Being the slightly OTT mum I am, I am not sure how I would feel with say, a curious toddler and so much water! I'd probably resort to making them play in one of those floatation jackets they use to learn to swim!

The dog paddock, is fully fenced off and gated. It has a poop bin and the grass was free of dog poo, so I could run around with the dog off lead. The fence is about 4ft high and the paddock big enough to run our speedy whippet. It was also lovely to see her play with other friendly dogs here.

The only reason I have given 9 instead of 10 stars, is because from pitch 19 you can hear the slight noise from the motorway (we do not live near any main roads, so this is probably why it was noticeable for us). And the light aircraft from the local small run way was a little bit much at times.

The site is well looked after, well maintained and well thought out. We will definitely be returning :0) Many thanks.

 We came here in June 2017 & stayed 3 nights. Our friends joined us for the weekend. What a lovely site.

It is peaceful, safe & secure. The on site shop is a bit of a tardis (bigger on the inside than it looks!).

The pitch was flat even and spacious (our tent is a Kampa Filey 6 - so a big tent). Plenty of space.

The toilet & shower facilities were brilliant. Hot showers & clean. There was one block with small shower cubicles that opened onto a communal changing room. The other shower block had spaces to change within the cubicles. I can only speak for the ladies facilities though! Plenty of toilet cubicles & separate sinks. One toilet cubicle containing a sink. Everything was clean.

The whole site is thoughtfully laid out and just beautiful with the fishing pools. We even caught a glimpse of the herd of deer over the Chase as sun set. Just perfect. Thank you to the incredibly friendly and ever so helpful team.

A highly recommended site.

 Tent & Touring Caravan

We were lucky enough to get pitches on a small enclosed area not far from reception so it was fairly quiet, not crowded and plenty of room to play tennis/badminton etc with the 10yr old in our 'group'. One loo and shower per gender - can't even remember what the washing up facilities were like since we did all ours in my friends caravan. Has a takeaway on site which seemed very popular but if you have any kind of food 'allergy' it's a no go since it caters for the 'normal' diets (which I understand totally)

For just a long weekend there was no need to leave the site. We walked the dogs to the specific field supplied for the purpose, the 10 yr old enjoyed the play park, the fishing folks enjoyed their fishing in the ponds etc.

Not sure we would go for a longer period but would go back for a long weekend again.
