We visited the Howard on the 22nd of June for one week and found it to be an absolute gem, OK we were blessed with fantastic weather, but the welcome by the wardens started the holiday off perfectly, We knew beforehand of the facilities available on site and had absolutely no issues here, if you want shower blocks and play parks then this may not be what you are looking for. The wardens gave us a fantastic run down of what was available on site, in Rosedale and beyond, they are obviously passionate about their job and the hard work and friendliness was amazing. This must of rubbed off on other users on the site as everyone was so friendly. We are looking forward to booking again in the near future as this is now our favorite site we have used. there are many hard standing pitches along with grass , I'm sure in wet weather the hard standing would be a blessing. The water and waste points are spotlessly clean and were cleaned daily if not more often. Obsoletely no negatives, we love this site and the area.
