Possibly worst site ever stayed on

We were so excited to book this looked lovely . How wrong can you be after a very long hot journey we finally arrived to find our site completely unusable due to 5-6 feet deep tracks and a huge bees nest quickly relocated to another site which was halved in size due to wood that had been chopped and stacked ok well never mind let's go for a drink nope the restaurant and bar doesn't open on a Monday or Tuesday then seems to open when it feels like it other times no shop.or anywhere to buy any drinks whether soft or alcoholic ! The only thing this site has is a good pool but if you want a holiday atmosphere or an ice cream or even a drink in the bar this site is not for you . The mosquitoes are huge and the site is dusty choose somewhere else . We were so disgusted we left early paid extra in August to relocate to another site then following a complaint to the caravan club were able to recoup some of our costs after the site admitted not offering the advertised amenities

Very disappointing visit

This site comprises mainly of chalets, as our visit was towards the end of the season, most of these chalets were closed up, consequently the site at first appeared very quiet. Touring pitches are a little remote, being on the outside of the chalets facing a large field and during our week there we only had 2 neighbours. Our visit got off to a bad start when, arriving at our allocated pitch we found it occupied by a French couple and their caravan. On enquiring as to the reason for them to be on the pitch allocated to us it appeared they didn't like their pitch and had decided to move. A complaint to reception merely saw us allocated the other couples pitch, which had a tree located in the middle of the pitch making access very difficult. One thing we had not planned for was the prescence of swarms of mosquitoes which were everywhere. Before we managed to visit a pharmacy and a local supermarche to purchase sprays etc. we both collected in excess of 40 bites. Only one toilet block was open, there were plentiful wash basins but no plugs and with very low water pressure. There were only 3 showers for men and 3 for women and they were accessed from the outside, so not ideal. In fact during our stay we used only the facilities of our van. On the Friday night a large youth group arrived and set up in a nearby barn, the very loud disco started at 10pm and went on till 3.30 the next morning. On Saturday night it again started at 10pm, finishing at 2.30, and was then followed at 5.30 by a large group having a farewell party on the field opposite. All in all we were very disappointed with our visit and will not be visiting again.

Maybe the time of the year (end of season) so take this into consideration

We stayed here at the very end of the season so I might be unfair to the site. If you want peace and quiet then this is the place. The site is mainly for set up for holiday homes to rent or buy and the touring pitches were round the edge looking out over a field which is quite nice as it feels quite open. You need transport to get out and about as it is not in walking distant of a shop. There was a restaurant on site but that was closed. There were hardly any touring people staying there when we stayed there, so it felt a bit strange to be on a large site without seeing many people around you. The toilets were clean and functional but had no soap or hand dryer and the showers were in just a "lean to" off of the toilets, so were fairly open to the elements and even though the weather wasn't cold when we stayed there, I felt cold to shower due to the breeze and the water wasn't over hot. Be careful when walking about as there were lots of very hard and sharp seeds from the trees on the ground which got stuck in my shoes and got carried into the motorhome for us to tread on in the night and the dog wasn't over happy with them either. The worse thing about the site was the mosquitoes. It is situated near a lot of inland water channels and ditches and the mosquitoes were terrible despite taking precautions (as we were warned by another couple staying there) my husband and I came away with over 30 bites each, which were extremely itchy for many days later. The mosquitoes may again been down to the time of year, mid September or the hot weather that we had a day or two before. The site has a pool which we didn't use so I can't comment and various other games areas, there was meant to be a fitness room but we didn't find that, so again I can't comment.
