Sad to see the decline of this site in such a beautiful location

We stayed at this site in 2018 and it was lovely, so when returning home from the New Forest this month we decided to book another stay here. I wished I had read the reviews first. The site has seriously declined and in our view is no longer at an acceptable standard. The location is excellent and the views from most pitches lovely. The pitches are small and hardstandings are mostly accessed across grass. The site is very steep and may be difficult to navigate when the site is busy, but it was fairly quiet in October so was not an issue. The receptionist was friendly and helpful, we were shown to our pitch by a man on a quad bike who must have been having a bad day. The facility blocks were tired and grubby but we have our own facilities so could live with that. The issue which really made us decide we will not return to this site was the state and lack of availability of the chemical waste disposal facilities, afundamental matter for touring vans. We had two nights on the site, and on the first occasion my husband went down to the lower CWD point down the hill. The decking surrounding it was lethally slippery and he almost slipped over on it, just saving himself. He reported it to a member of the site team who shrugged his shoulders and said the site was closing in a fortnight. We reported the state of the decking as a H&S concern in writing to the reception office as we were concerned that someone could break their leg/hip before the site closed and thought that the matter was closed and that we would use a different CWD point next time . However, on the last occasion we were going to the MSP to drain down the tanks and used the CWD facility there. It was totally insanitary - blocked with only slight seepage away and very unsavoury. We would not go near that again and there were no hand washing facilities nearby at all, and that is why we have taken the matter further with this review. This site has gone downhill since the takeover by the new company and we do not think that it should continue to be included as an affiliated site within the club sites as it is way below standard.
