FISHING TRIP

Abbots Shingle
I stayed at this site in early December and choose it for its close proximity to a fishing venue where I was meeting my brother. The site is a very pretty wooded site. Bernard and Peggy made me very welocome. Sadly despite all this I cannot give this site more than 2 stars because of the eywatering £27.00 per night price that I was charged for a very basic water tap and a 10 amp hook up. I would not normally expect to pay that much more for a club site with full facilities near a beach in high season. That being said I knew what the cost was and decided to stay there anyway for the very specific reason I have already mentioned and so I guess some people might say if you can get away with it why not.

Lovely holiday

Abbots Shingle
We have just stayed at abbots shingle for 10 nights, with friends, what a lovely place to stay. We cannot fault The peace and tranquility it is amazing. There are so many walks in the area which is made even better if you have a dog. There is a pub which takes 5 minutes to walk too called the barley mow, lovely food and very welcoming. We would def recommend the little and great Gresham pond as long as you like walking. Bernard and Peggy are very welcoming and friendly which makes you feel at ease straight away. We will def be returning again next year.

I’m amazed there aren’t more great reviews

Abbots Shingle
We only stayed for two nights but couldn’t have been made more welcome by Bernard and Peggy. A charming couple with lots of fabulous tales to tell about the local area with Bernard living nearby since before the Second World War. The site is lovely and set in 7 acres. The camping area is plenty big enough for a CL and you have the whole area to wander about in. Reading the reviews I was quite surprised that there wasn’t anything particularly recent so I thought I’d correct that. I know this little gem gets booked out with returning guests and it deserves to - we’ll definitely becoming again as it’s a lovely place to just hang out and enjoy Bernard’s stories.

Lovely but...

Abbots Shingle

This site is set in lovely surroundings but there is NOT 7 acres available for caravans. There are two parts which are not connected for vehicles. The lower part is about 2 acres and the upper part, near the house, is less than one acre. There is one EHU bollard which the owner runs an extension lead from - if this is used by more than one outfit it trips (I suggest this is what happen in a previous review). 10 amp is adequate (just!) for one outfit but not enough to share! We won't be back!

Response from the Club

Many thanks for your review. The issue with Electric Hook Up occurred as it was the owners own Electric Hook Up that you connected to that the site owners uses for maintenance on the site and not the Electric Hook Up designated for guests. Our CL team have spoken to the owner about this and as a result of the confusion caused by this, the owner has now removed their hook up from the site so that it can’t be used by any member by mistake. We sincerely apologise for the confusion and any issues that have occurred because of this during your stay. Please be assured that all hook ups on the CL Site for guests are tested by an electrician and if you have any concerns the CL owner is always more than happy to help.

Real little gem

Abbots Shingle
After a busy day and a fair amount of travelling we arrived at a beautiful oasis of peace and tranquility. We had a lovely welcome from the owners who showed us where everything was and told us what we could find in the area. The site itself is in the owners huge and beautiful garden, full of trees and lovely plants. It was the perfect end to a great weekend and we will certainly return.
