The wardens are friendly and trying to accommodate people’s needs here, but the site in its current state is probably proving very difficult for them to manage.
The site is very awkwardly set out and difficult to manoeuvre large outfits, pitches are tight unlevel and covered in small pea gravel, some of it is very deep too, the gravel is difficult to walk on, gets everywhere including your shoes/flip flops and inside the motorhome. We travel with a heavy motorcycle which was seriously dangerous and difficult to manoeuvre on the pea gravel, for this reason alone we won’t return and have cancelled all further bookings here.
On every occasion I visited the the toilet facilities over a 5 day period the paper towel/sanitary towel bins were full and overflowing, on our morning of departure I visited the toilets to find no toilet paper at all, although the facilities appeared to be kept clean.
I found the view from our pitch was looking at the rear of buildings which felt like we were camped in someone’s back yard and every time a vehicle passed on the gravel dirt road, clouds of dust were thrown up and blown across our pitch in to my motorhome, if we were unlucky enough to be cooking outdoors on the Cadac the dust thrown up drifted on to our food. It didn’t matter if the vehicle drove past slowly as most vehicle exhausts curve down pointing at the road, which blows straight at the dirty dusty road surface creating this most unpleasant experience.
We were also not given a choice of empty pitches but instead allocated a pitch number on arrival. The warden explained this was due to previous bookings taken by the previous owners who allowed booking specific pitches, obviously this situation should change for next season. I realise the club has only recently taken ownership of this site so have inherited many of these issues, but this site falls way short of the clubs usual standards so will require serious investment and some major works before it warrants the prices being charged. I also found the entrance to the lower pitches ugly and uninviting.
There is also the problem of grounds maintenance with noise and fumes, as the amount of natural growth needing noisy polluting equipment to control is going to be a challenge too. On arrival and after a long drive, then faced with difficult pitch conditions to set up on, a lie down and rest was in order, as soon as my head hit the pillow strimmers etc fired up and droned on in the background close to our pitch making me wish I’d stayed in the peace and quiet of home...
I hope the site wardens and club can turn this site around for its members but it’s not for us.
