“A great weekend was had by all”
Just had two nights at this site. Got to say on the whole we were very impressed. The weather was horrendous and rained non-stop for two days, fining up when we were ready to pack up.
The female staff were great, very helpful and welcoming. However, we did struggle with the male warden, who was incredibly miserable, which kind of put a slight dampener on a beautiful site.
Toilets and showers were immaculate, spotlessly clean at all times of day and night. Showers as said previously are unisex and have a 4 minute running time, which was not a problem for us, (two adults and an eight year old)
The on site shop cannot be relied on for essentials, stocked mainly camping accessories. However, there is both a co op and spar in the village. As well as numerous banks, fish shop, Indian and lots of pubs!
The games room was a welcoming shelter and entertainment provider, given the weather.
The speed bumps going into the site were too big and not having a four wheel drive we bottomed the car going out and noticed others had done the same given all the visible scrapes!
Bentham was a 10 minute walk up a slight hill from the site. Rain started as got to the top so ended up finding the nearest pub to have a meal at, which was the black bull. Got to say the decor needs upgrading and worn out cushion covers replacing. However, had a great meal-v large portions and could not fault the food at all!
There are a lot of static caravans on this site and a new development starting to accommodate more.
A great weekend was had by all, despite the weather. And we will definitely be returning!
