Beautiful setting

We have just come home from a lovely weekend break here. The area is beautiful with amazing views through your windows. The toilet and shower were clean and 10p lasted about 3 mins in the shower. The lady that runs the site is over 80yrs old and is amazing. She was very helpful and very welcoming. We would go back tomorrow if we could.

A beautiful remote site

All the other reviews are quite accurate apart from the one saying the owner’s welcome wasn’t friendly. I would have given this all five stars if the toilet/showers were a bit better and cleaner. I don’t mind paying for a shower but a wall hook to hang your towel would have been nice to have. Also, my wife said there was no bin in the ladies, or the men’s loo, to put wipes etc in. How much would they cost to include? We’ll be back but it’s a shame such little things spoil an otherwise perfect place.

overpriced

We had a very wet weekend here, so bad that our van tyres, steadies and jockey wheel sank into the ground (not blaming the owners for the weather) on arrival we where given little information on the site i.e. where the bins where, waste water points etc. the drinking water taps, non drinking water taps and waste water tap where all out of order...... we had to use an unsecured tap on the side of a barn for water, god knows if it was drinking water. the toilets where ok however no hot tap nor hand towel to dry hands after washing them. the kids play area was run down with paint flaking from the metal. way over priced at £20 per night maybe £10 per night... will we be returning NO never again unless the price drops considerably.

Great quiet weekend

Had a good weekend here.  The site has good facilities for kids, the pool wasn't open but looked clean.  The loos were clean, a lot cleaner than some CLs we've been to. Friendly welcome great for walkers, across a short field and you are on the southdowns way. £20 maybe expensive for a CL but there is a lot more than a standard CL.

great location, poor facilities

Certificated sites often have superb locations and so did this one.  However, for £20 I would have expected good facilities to complement the vista. No hot water nor free showers; a toilet that wasn't cleaned in 2 days.  Presumably the price took stock of the swimming pool, but this was locked and not particularly welcoming either.   The setting was undeniably lovely, but marred by poor facilities.
