Beautiful surroundings but not exclusive to club members

We stayed on the Caravan Club CL site. The Caravan Club explicitly says that CL sites are small five-pitch sites exclusively for members. So I was rather disappointed to find the five-pitch CL to be just an annex of a bigger site owned run by the same pub and sharing its facilities. That said, we were warmly welcomed and as we were there two hours before the official check-in time offered space in the pub car park so we could go off for a walk. The pitches enjoy stunning views of the surrounding valley and are quite sheltered. The facilities are reasonable. The showers are hot and powerful but have no curtain or shelf for your toiletries. We went for a drink at the pub and were shocked they charged pub customers £1 per hour for wi-fi - I've never been asked to pay for wi-fi when spending my cash in a pub before. The pub was crowded (and this is off peak) and there was a terrible smell which seemed to be a combination of fried food and walkers' shoes and I couldn't wait to get back out into the fresh air. Some other reviewers have described the service in the pub and campsite to be unfriendly, but I didn't find this to be the case. My only other complaint is that you can only get the advertised price by booking by phone; if you book online there's a £2 surcharge to pay for their computer server(!?!). The location of the site is enough that I'd forgive any other small faults and I wouldn't hesitate to return.
