What a stay. I've been camping for a couple of years now and this place fully deserves the 5 stars I'm awarding. The owner is genuinely one of the nicest blokes I have met. The pitches were extremely well maintained with very accessable hook up points and water. The washing facilities are second to none, very clean and the showers are the perfect temperature. The outside pool comes in at around 32° and stays there which is lovely. There is an on-site dog walking field which is secure so your fur babies will not escape, I could go on and on for ever. The only downside is the owner has decided to stop seasonal camping in place of hiring the venue out for weddings and parties etc. Get in while you can because this place is a must visit .

First of all I have to say what a fantastic man Jim the owner is, what a gentleman, what a diamond! Our Daughter and Grandaughter where quite taken by him and so were we. The pool is fantastic, many hrs spent in there by the kids, till they turned into prunes. The restaurant has such a welcoming warm feel to it, friendly staff,lovely food, toilets and showers very clean. The surrounding area is just stunning, had some lovely walks. Only negative is, I really wish we had come across it years ago, as we would of come back again and again, place will be closing sometime next year for camping due to becoming a wedding venue(so book that wedding now!! ) ..wow what a place to get married… I need to find myself a new husband to be 😉
