Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

This site has numerous static caravans that are very clearly lived in.  We were not actually given a proper pitch, even though we’d booked, just told to pitch up ‘in the middle’ of the field and use one of the electric hook-ups.  This was not nice, we had 1 of the ‘residents’ simply driving immediately past the back of the van rather than give us some space.

Is there water on each pitch?            

No.

What is the electric like?           

Honestly? No idea, we didn’t stay long enough to check.

Drainage?     

No

What’s the site access like?        

Okay

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                              Ladies and gents with 2 toilets in each. Ladies toilets were okay.  Gents were damp, dark and dirty.                                                                                                                                                                              Showers:                          The shower in the ladies was not acceptable – I certainly would never have considered using it. For the gents the same comment as above – damp, dark and dirty.  You wouldn’t wash your dog in there..

What other facilities are there?    

Chemical waste disposal. Rubbish bins.  Washing up facilities. Washing machine.

Situated behind a rather run-down pub.   The residents, whilst friendly enough, were not particularly respectful towards tourers, driving immediately behind the van, walking noisily backwards and forwards to the pub at all hours.

We were meant to stay for 9 nights, but we left as soon as possible the next morning (having found a new site to stay on).

I don’t know.

The landlady’s daughter was very friendly and is an asset to the pub.  The other barmaid was also very friendly.  The landlady herself spent the evening playing pool (for free) with a regular.

How much is it?     

£18 per night (vastly overpriced)

What’s the area like?            

The larger area is lovely.

More detail:

The Good:-

Nothing

The Bad:-

Everything.

 The Ugly:-

The toilets.  The site

Moving On:

We moved to another site in the area (as soon as we possibly could).
