Lovely site spoilt by building work

We recently had 6 nights at Cayton a lovely site with new facilities and a bus stop right outside for easy travel into Filey Scarborough and Bridlington. In the main we enjoyed our stay but spoiling it was the constant noise and beeping from the building site which even though we were on the top site (following the advice at check in about the building work behind the lower site) was annoying. The constant smell of frying from the nearby McCains chip factory if the wind was in the right direction and it was for most of our stay. The ‘planned’ maintenance that we weren’t informed of when choosing our pitch which entailed the grass being cut on some spare ground behind us and after that a small digger came and scraped the soil off into piles which were then moved and dumped into other piles causing clouds of dust this went on from lunchtime until almost 6pm. We and others couldn’t sit outside for the noise and dust and after paying almost £40 a night to have this for a whole afternoon wasn’t on. The wardens making an elderly man move his awning or take it down on a very hot afternoon was a bit ‘jobsworth’ mean and dangerous given the gents age and the hot day, he’d been there three days when it was decided he was breaking the rules having his awning onto the grass he was at the end of a row with a smaller grass area two pebble paths and a road (more than 6 metres) between his awning and the next outfit. He was extremely upset agreed he was at fault and said he would take it down. We and another couple helped to move his caravan and awning so he wasn’t breaking the rules which under the circumstances could have been relaxed a little especially as opposite him was a motorhome with its awning pitched onto the grass and closer than the 6 metre rule ??? I appreciate the 6 meter rule is for fire safety and totally agree with it but he was more than 6 metres from the next outfit so a bit of leniency and consideration from the wardens on this occasion wouldn’t have been out of place. Nice well kept site conveniently placed for exploring the surrounding area but spoilt at the moment by being adjacent to a noisy building site.
