Good for families

Could be so much better but missing the mark

I’m sure that when the weather is warm and the evenings long, this site is great for young families but midweek out of season, it just isn’t worth the money. There are many positive features- the pitches are spacious, level and will have additional privacy once the hedges mature. The facilities are clean and the whole site looks well maintained. There is a gym onsite and a lovely little “spa” which offered reasonably priced treatments, provided by Meghan who was excellent. The heated children’s splash pool and beach look good fun and the coffee was good in the cafe. There is also a bus-stop close by which operates until about 5.30pm into Shrewsbury. BUT the sanitary facilities offer style over substance and there is a general lack of information regarding what is available on a wet Tuesday for your £42/ night! The showers are huge, which I am sure is useful if you have small children, but they have only 1 clothes hook and unless you want to use the complimentary shampoo/conditioner in one, you have to put your own toiletries on the floor. The shower block was also rather cold which didn’t encourage me to linger and the water, as previously mentioned is only lukewarm. There is a freshwater pool which would have been inviting if heated, but at this time of year it recommended wearing a wetsuit, which unfortunately, I had forgotten to pack (!) There is a general lack of information about the use and availability of facilities. There are hot tubs, a cinema and a gym, but they don’t seem to be proactive in promoting these. I had assumed that both the cinema and tubs were out of use at this time of year until we were due to leave. Apparently all the information is available online, which is fine as I am rarely parted from my iPad, but unless you are directed to this information, you tend to rely on the welcome leaflet which occupies itself with ensuring you “understand your pitch”. Also the bar/ cafe closed at 6pm which I can understand, as the site was almost deserted, but then surely the price should reflect this. We wanted to try the site,despite other reviews, but it just misses the mark on so many counts and I’m sure if these were addressed, it would be a more attractive proposition for those of us without young families, wanting something a bit extra out of season. Now enjoying a very satisfactory CL site in Worcestershire!
