Pros- staff friendly and helpful, and the site is in a pretty location next to a water sport facility.
Cons-1)Shower blocks absolutely freezing, one had no heating on at all although it appeared newly built, the other was bearly warm. When I mentioned it was freezing (to the owner I think)the reply I got was ‘that one over there is warmer’ not I’ll get it fixed/turned on I got the impression he was economising as I overheard some staff saying to another camper who was complaining they couldn’t understand what was going on with regard to the heating. The freezing shower block also was surrounded by grass and due to the amount of rain was like a quagmire and a dangerous slipping hazard. The reply when mentioned was ‘it’s a job that’ll be done’ It should have been done when built if you were at all concerned about your customers!
2) the site for motorhomes /caravans was extremely cramped they are packed in like sardines everyone seemed to have difficulty getting on/off their pitches particularly if there were campers already next to them. The pitches should be able to take an awning but if you put one up next to a motor home you can’t get off the pitch.
3)it’s definately not geared up for motorhomes the water tap which luckily was next to our van (not shown on their map) would have been next to useless had we not been next to it, as manoeuvring the motorhome off the pitch to get to the tap once our awning was up would have been impossible the tap was suitable for caravans who have an aqua roll but not for motorhomes. Also for the same reason getting to the grey waste point (not on the map) would have impossible, as we were only there 3 days we managed to wait but the track to it was also very tight and flooded.
4) there is no shop on site even for basics like bread/milk etc. The website stated that this was because supermarkets were close by. This is fine for caravanners who have a vehicle but for motorhomes it’s not convenient and for those who are basically penned in due to restricted access it’s impossible.
5) the clubhouse/bar is very tired, and could easily be a lot better. We visited 2 days and there was hardly anyone in there, we visited for the day years ago for an event and it’s hasnt changed at all.
If you are in one of the lodges self catering with a car then I’m sure the site is fine. However, if you are a motorhomer or caravaner I wouldn’t recommend this site and will not return.
