Ease of arrival/welcome

- No - and certainly not for us either! -

At this time of the year, when the scenery is looking beautiful, green fields and wild flowers, looking forward to sitting outside the caravan to enjoy a view and perhaps the smell of freshly mown grass....... and then you arrive at 'Darling Buds of May'! A bit of a 'shock' to say the least - a huge 'yard' which can only be described as such. A small patch of grass at one end of the Site, but full of dog mess so I was told by some other Visitors. Completely fenced off, no view, and really, very baron' with a massive area of grit/hardstanding. This Site is utterly 'soul less'. Difficult to erect an awning in all probability too. It 'boasts' a Toilet and Shower - (thankfully we use our own facilities anyway) but just one look inside of each was sufficient to put anyone off using either, frankly. I understand that there is another Site (Hyde Park - affiliated to the 'Darling Buds of May' Site) which is, apparently in a Field, but this was NOT opening until July for whatever reason. We visit Newbury on a regular basis to visit Family. Unfortunately our 'usual' CL was full during the period we would have liked - sadly, this was a very poor substitution, compared. For £16.50 a night to stay in such a place is total rip-off. Never again..........
