With 10 hook ups this really is a commercial site

First our three moans. This is not a CL. We booked for the CL but found on arrival that the CL field, with its 5 hard standings, was full. We were located in the field that you drive through to get to the CL field. Here there are 5 more hook ups so it’s not an overflow site. This caravan site, therefore, takes 10 vans not 5 and as it was almost full most nights it should be considered a commercial site not a CL. Our second moan is the approach. The lanes are very narrow, winding, steep and most passing places are only big enough for cars. If you were to meet another vehicle towing a trailer then you could be in a lot of trouble. There was a lot of straw by the roadside suggesting that just a few weeks ago this access would have been very busy with tractors and trailers. Our third gripe is about Harvey the dog. He’s a very nice dog but he’s allowed to roam the site and seemed to arrive at our van every time we lit the BBQ. Not a good example when club members are meant to keep dogs on a lead. Also, when you can’t see your dog you can’t see where it’s doing ‘stuff’. Now the good bits. Very nice helpful owners, lovely surroundings, excellent toilet and shower block but to pay another £1 for a shower seemed a little tight when you’ve already paid a hefty £18/night. The owners were also very understanding when we had to return home early. However, we won’t be back for the three reasons mentioned.

Hickeys Adventure

What a fabulous CL this is. We arrived here on the 10th April 2018 after a 6 hr drive in the pouring rain and it was still coming down. Helen the owner gave us a warm and friendly welcome and information of where everything was and left us to set up. We managed to get the awning up in between showers and that was our set up for the next 17 nights The toilet block is immaculate 2 toilets and a shower ( £1 per shower ) The drinking water tap is the best we’ve ever had sensible hose attached didn’t drip and was so fast it took only a minute to fill the aqua roll Helen and John were very accommodating Even did some washing for me at a small charge which I was so grateful for as we were they’re for almost 3 weeks They have a beautiful black Labrador called Harvey who came to visit us every day. We would definitely go back to this CL We had a brilliant holiday Thank you Helen The Hickeys and Bailey

simply idyllic

What a wonderful site. Very friendly welcome from Helen, nothing to much trouble. The scenery stunning, the peace and tranquility just so welcoming. Very well cared for site with two beautiful lakes. Just perfect. This CL is all you could wish for if you are a caravaner, your own little piece of heaven. Thank you Helen, hopefully we will see you soon.
