Let down by owner

A beautiful kept site with hard standing good pitches, good entrance, good wifi. Unfortunately although it states in BOLD lettering on arrival that dogs must be kept on leads we were disapointed in that the owners exercise there own dogs off the lead, 2 came onto our pitch with 1 doing a poo in front of where we were sitting, although this was cleaned up by the lady owner there wasn't even an appology and there wete numerous flies then targeted this area, there is an area where they can exercise there dogs and set an example to other dog owners. We travel with our cat all the the time and we've come across this problem on other sites before when she was attacked by a loose dog. After this episode unfortunately and ashame we will not be returning.

Well kept site

We found the road noise at this site a problem, however we live in a very rural location and are used to no traffic noise! Good welcome from owner. Small site which has what appears 2 static pitches, as these were not numbered. This means you are quite close to your neighbours. Good facilities which includes WiFi which was appreciated. The bus service no longer runs through this village so our plans had to be amended. Good pub within an easy walk. Dogs have to be tied up at all times which is a shame as ours is very well behaved. Still people don’t pick up after there dogs, I picked up some poo left by another camper’s dog , just to show some responsible dog owners exist !

Lovely site and friendly welcome

Just off the main road but surprisingly little traffic noise. The field is well kept and flat and all hard standings. Lovely welcome from the owners and full explanation of how things worked etc. The shower and toilet is on the other side of the building but clean and modern. Also a decent wifi signal that worked in the field (not very common, even in places that claim to have wifi). Highly recommended.

Lovely little site

We loved this site. It did not disappoint. Mr and Mrs Steel, lovely friendly owners, are running B&B, so you can leave your dog in a boot and have lovely cooked breakfast.  Royal Yeoman B&B has lovely toilet and shower block just for us caravaners. Good standards throughout. Spacious pitches and looked after lawn. Cars kept separate in a parking space just aside of the building.  A little stream surrounds the 5 caravan field - nice. Traffic noise can be heard but it did not disturb our sleep. TV signal not found, but excellent  wifi signal and have plenty of DVDs instead.  I loved this holiday.

A great few days with friends

The site is easily accessible & is beautifully maintained.  At the time of our visit it was being looked after by some temporary managers while the owners were away for a couple ofmonths.  This meant there were no meals available or Internet.  Unfortunately the traffic noise spoilt this nice site as it was constant, also it is up for sale so don't know what will happen.  Also no TV reception.
