We had a free night voucher courtesy of the club so chose to use it at the Carsington Water site as we have never been before and it's only 90 minutes from home so ideal for a 2 night stay.
The weather forecast for the weekend was awful but that didn't deter us and I'm so pleased it didn't. We had a lovely welcome from the wardens and chose pitch number 2 which was reasonably level and like most of the site, in a small 'cul-de-sac' area just behind reception.
It reminded us very much of a European site being fairly private and surrounded by trees.
We travel with our 2 dogs and the dog walk is great, lots for them to sniff at but we did have quite a lot of heavy rain showers so the dog walk can get pretty muddy and slippy, just make sure you're wearing a good pair of boots.
We walked to the visitor centre but only took the short route on the side of the dam as it was a very wet day.
The dog shower was a real bonus as our male beagle decided to roll in fox poo out on his walk on our first night so that saved a bit of a mess in the motorhome!
Lovely peaceful site, rabbits and squirrels running about everywhere, immaculate facilities. The pizza van came on the Saturday night and seemed to be very popular although we didn't try it (wished we had). TV signal was brilliant, didn't use the wifi as we use our O2 phones as mobile hotspots and we streamed the Superbike racing with no problem at all.
We had a lovely peaceful break and will defintely come back.
