Lovely location but let down by facilities and a lack of information on arrival

I have just come back from staying at this site for 2 nights. The countryside and location are really lovely but the thing that really ruined my stay was the facilities. I know CL's don't have to provide a shower or toilet but, if they do, I think they should be fit for purpose. Prior to my visit and booking this site, I read the reviews on here but I paid little attention to the dates of the reviews. Someone mentioned in 2015 that the toilet and shower were very tired but now, over 4 years later, they really do require some attention, the shower in particular. A lady that arrived on the site at the same time as us commented that she wouldn't even let her horse go near the shower in the state it's in! The chemical toilet empying point is within the same farm building/shed as the shower and toilet. It is quite literally right next to all the campsite information and tourist leaflets which I thought was horrible. Upon emptying my toilet cassette, I noticed on the noticeboard that only green chemical should be used. No where is this mentioned on this CL's details on the CAMC. To discover this upon emptying my toilet cassette is just a little bit too late! Even though I booked this site 5 weeks in advance, there was no toilet paper or paper hand towels in the toilet. There is a polite request on the noticeboard requesting that visiting dogs do not defecate on the site. Yet this is exactly what the owner's dog did on the grass opposite my caravan on the first morning. This site could be a truly lovely place but is let down by a lack of communication from the owner on arrival, seriously tired shower and toilet facilities and some basic lighting around the drinking water and hardstanding area.
