Not all that you might have come to expect from this site

A favourite site and it will remain so, however not all of the advertised or expected facilities/amenities are available. Just back from Castleton and currently the site has NO gas (so the website needs to be changed to reflect this), and has no 'little shop' facilities. Discussed the matter with a warden, and my interpretation is that there is an ongoing dispute between the wardens and the Club over the operation and supply of gas bottles. Hence the site no longer supplies Calor gas bottles. Whether you consider the availability of Gas bottles on site as an expectation given the price we pay for pitches, or as a bonus, then thats up to you, but whatever the website needs to change to reflect the situation. As a result were also unable to comply with the Club Health and Safety requests posted around the site, along the lines of 'use your own facilities where possible to reduce the risk of spreading Covid', Basically we didnt have enough spare gas to use our own Motorhome shower without risking running out for cooking and heating. (Without boring you further with a full report of how this affected our holiday the nearest Calor supplier is the garage in Hope, about a mile away. Delivery is not a service offered by them). The site also now has no essential shopping amenities, like bread, milk, kiddies ice creams etc... Again a dispute between the wardens and Club. Otherwise, given the current Covid restrictions affecting the shower block limiting numbers, and no drying room facility, things were to their usual high level of cleanliness and organisation. So, in summary, if any of the above is of significance to you then give the site a call before you arrive to check the latest situation. Thanks for reading.
