A lovely site in a fabulous location, however .....

A lovely site with spacious pitches in a fabulous location with most of the pitches have amazing sea views. Two paths from the site (one at each end) lead directly onto the coast path offering beautiful walks to Tintagel and Boscastle (and beyond). The location is perfect. And now to the 'however'. There are 146 pitches on this site with a main toilet block and a couple of portacabins offering additional facilities. There are a total of eight female showers (one of the showers in the portacabin was out of order) so this meant some queuing at busy times. Also there were only four dishwashing sinks for the whole site, again with queues at busy times. I understand we visited over the Bank Holiday weekend, but all the facilities appeared a little grubby. This is one of the most expensive sites we've visited this year and had the most disappointing facilities. The other 'however' is the arrival time. The Club handbook clearly states 12.00 arrival time, but on Saturday people started arriving just after 9.00am and were being allowed on site to pitch. We were told that they can't turn them away (as that would lead to complaints), they can't be made to wait until 12.00 (as that would block the access road) so they have to be let on site. If you are like us and abide by the arrival time for site, this is very frustrating. Interestingly there are two letters in this month's Club magazine about with this same complaint of early arrivals. Even more galling is that when we left yesterday (just after 11.00am) we met another caravan hurtling down the access road (which is single track in places) and we had to reverse to allow the caravan (who was arriving early) to rush onto the site.
