A pleasant surprise.

I recently stayed at the Cayton site for three nights during the half term break along with my 14 year old son. I was not sure what to expect after reading the mixed reviews. My feelings about the site are as follows and to be honest I was pleasantly surprised and I felt that I had a nicer experience than at other sites. Yes, the site facilities do need a degree of upgrading but in their present state they are still much better than a lot of other sites. The previous weekend I had stayed at a privately run touring caravan park in North Wales and it most certainly need an upgrade....it was grim. Maybe some members should have an occasional reality check to see what other facilities are like. As I have said, I really liked and enjoyed our stay. The pitch that we had was delightful. It was quiet, private and just generally a nice place to be. The trees and hedges around the site add to the pleasant feel. The showers etc are not as bad as some make out. Yes, they may have 1990’s tiles but they were spotless and worked efficiently. I seen nothing wrong with them personally and if a push button shower button upsets you, then maybe caravanning is not for you. The staff on the site were lovely. Possibly the friendliest that I have come across. I had a long conversation with one of the staff members and was told about the upcoming improvements. My big dread would be that the site is changed and ‘so called improved’ and end up like the Tewkesbury site which had been, in my opinion, absolutely ruined. Tewkesbury was once a nice site but now feels like a council run caravan storage facility. Hopefully this will not have to the Cayton site and the endearing characteristics of the site are allowed to maintain. Yes, improve the taps and toilets but please don’t overdo the decimation of the natural features of the site and have kerbs and tarmac everywhere. I hope to make many return visits if the site is not ruined by modernisation.
