Peace and Quiet

We stayed on site in July 2016, paid £8.00 for one night and received water, electric and rubbish disposal.  Shower and toilet facilities basic but adequate.  Warm welcome on arrival and helpful in pointing out places of interest.  Given rural location no wifi, narrow roads on approach, and you need to use care when entering and leaving site field but more than enough room.  I feel previous comments are unfair.  What you do get is silence and a real back to basics relaxing break away.  Would have no hesitation in returning to this site.

Good value

I feel the previous reviews are quite unfair considering the price of the CL. At £8 what do they expect? The fact it has any facilities over and above the basic compulsory 3 (water, sewage and rubbish disposal) is a bonus. We thought the toilet/shower, which was kept clean, had character and we used it daily. The water was quite hot enough. The one thing I would warn caravanners about is the sharp U turn from the driveway into the field which would be very awkward for a large caravan. Being a small motorhome we were OK but we still had to do a 3 point turn to get in. The field is uneven and may need blocks, but the welcome we got was very warm and helpful. We visited in August 2015.

Wouldn't go here again

We visited in May. There was no one on site to welcome us, we couldn't find any local information to tell us how to get to the beach though we could see the sea in the distance. Toilet and shower were still in use at the time of our visit, though only the wc was actually usable and there was no hot water.  The games room was also still available when we visited, though it was unusable.  The children's play things were ancient and kept in a barn with a roll of barbed wire in the entrance.  It didn't feel like a safe environment for children.  Worst site I've been to. I think Caravan Club should reconsider their inclusion in their book.

Could be fantastic

Actually stayed here last Easter but only able to post CL reviews now we have been members for a while so apologies if facilities have improved since then. Brilliant location in remote and fairly isolated area. The most appealing feature of this site was the surrounding countryside and walks to nearby Mid float Bay. Slightly scary navigating some of the small winding roads leading to site but got there unscathed. Access onto the smallish, uneven, enclosed field would not have been possible without our 4x4 and one couple, who arrived the day before, had to pitch up in the rather unattractive area in between the cowsheds and barns. The most disappointing aspects of the site were the shower/toilet facilities which were a joke really. A kiosk type arrangement consisting of a toilet with shower overhead so using the shower would have soaked whole kiosk. Full of cobwebs and dust but the toilet itself was clean and usable....do not however come here if you will rely on using the shower! Also the advertised Games area was an old barn full of discarded junk. A pervasive smell of damp and neglect filled the place and it wasn't really usable....I found a Worzel Gummage annual from the early 80's amongst the old tattered book collection and I think that was probably the last time the area was used! Basically the site desperately needs a bit of a tidy-up and if this was done it could be a fantastic place to stay. I feel that the caravan club should actually check out facilities of sites before allowing them to be advertised as we specifically chose this site rather than another couple nearby (which both were far superior) because of the Games room: which didn't really exist!

Terry & Jo's review

Nice quiet & secluded site. Field a bit uneven, so some levelling required. Follow instructions to site & not sat nav as local roads are very narrow in places. Care is required when getting close to the site as the entrance is on the right hand side on the brow of a hill. If you miss it you could go several miles before being able to turn around
