Odd toilet block/bathroom

Stayed here last weekend. In essence this site appears to be a plot of land that the owners have set up pitches and then left the visitors to their own devices. There are 5 pitches in a decent flat field and two hardstandings. We were glad we didn't opt for the hardstandings as they faced a stark looking fence. We never had any human contact from the owners - the booking was all on-line and upon arrival the message was very much 'look after yourself'. This lack of on-site 'supervision' meant that the pitch next to us had a load of their family visit for the day - which in this current climate is not allowed. I did let the owners know about this but had no response. The toilet is a bit odd - it reminded me of the 'Cooler' in 'The Great Escape'. They had tried to make it look like a bathroom inside which included a hand towel. In this current climate?! So there was this solitary unisex bathroom - to serve 7 pitches. The door into the toilet was a barn door with gaps - when drying yourself by the door you really didn't feel it was very private. On the plus side we took our road bikes and had a nice afternoon riding in the north Essex countryside and on another day caught the bus to Earls Colne. The bus stop was 2 mins walk down the lane and they go every 30 mins, The local pub (10-15 mins walk away) was lovely and you have the viaduct as the backdrop. This wasn't a bad site - it just lacked a bit on the facilities and 'owner interaction'
