Questions:- (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Bessacarr 769 tag axle – 8.56m)
What are the pitches like?
A mix of grass and a few hard-standings – bigger than expected as website says phone for bigger units over 8m – however most pitches look like they can accommodate us at 8.56m..
Is there water on each pitch?
No, but easily accessible everywhere
What is the electric like?
What’s the site access like?
Good access but signage is lacking. We only knew where to go as our friends were waiting for us with our barrier key
What are the Sanitary facilities like?
2 facilities – 1 closer to vans in a portakabin (not wonderful tbh). The others in a modern block which is much better, although there are already a couple of issues with badly fitter toilet seats and broken toilet roll holders…). You are given a key fob to access all the facilities
Toilets: Good enough. 3 cubicles in the portakabin (ladies anyway) and another 4 in the modern block
Toilet paper provided? Yes – plentiful Showers: 3 showers in each of the ladies and gents. You have to pay for your shower…
What other facilities are there?
Bins and CWD
Laundry (£4 washing machine; £1 drier)
Warden and assistant wardens
Bar (with plentiful food on offer)
Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?
Not that I’m aware of – ours works perfectly
How much is it?
We paid £22 per night including electric – remember this is in August.
What’s the area like?
This is a village with 8 pubs 🙂 We particularly liked the Shakespeare Inn where we received a very friendly welcome
The location by the water
Relaxed nature of the site
We didn’t like so much:-
The bins were right behind our pitch, but then we could have gone on a different pitch.
Just back home to keep working for our next European trip next summer
