So-so

A previous review mentioned a large field behind the site, I think this is slightly misleading. The site is in a large field, but there is no separate area for exercising dogs. We arrived on a Monday, when the pub doesn't open, so we didn't see anybody until I went in to pay the fees on the Tuesday, and then we didn't see anybody again before we left. The site is not quite as level as it looks, but levelling the van was no great problem. There were six outfits on site one night, but the field is big enough to take dozens. The path to the toilet takes you through the beer garden, which was not cleared up at night, so there were glasses left on the tables and a high-chair left out overnight. Having said all that, £12 a night is not bad, but we'd think twice about going again.

Fantastic!!

This site is absolutely fabulous. It is flat, very spacious, great welcome, perfect for dogs including a field behind the site. Lovely food at the pub. Water not marked as drinking water. We will definitely be back!

Best weekend ever!

The location was easy to find with easy access to the field. Sign-in and payment was easy via the pub. I believe the site only accepts up to 5 caravans/campers but not tents so it was really quiet. Went with friends so had two caravans on site and were able to pitch wherever suited us both with electric hook up. The site is not overlooked at all and safe for our dogs. It's basic with just an outside loo ( attached to the pub), water tap and electric and although we have a dry caravan it was absolutely fine. Ate in the pub on Saturday night and was great food and only had to walk a couple of yards and obviously could take the dogs too. They had a big bowl of water outside for dogs. Close to Teapot Island where we went for a good walk along the river and had tea and ice cream when we came back. Would not hesititate to recommend the site or to go back ourselves. Fantastic value for money.
