We have just returned from camping at this National Trust run campsite in Great Langdale,Yes the views are great,the campsite on the other hand hasnt changed in the twenty five years that we have been going there,the facilitys are exactly the same,the price,we were charged £12 for a 6 berth family tent,then on top of that a £9 supplement the warden says this is because they can no longer accomodate the same ammount of tents that they used to,the tents are suppossed to be 6 metres apart more like 6 feet apart so whats the supplement for?the ground was full of clay,with no drainage,and because it rained the whole time it was like being at Glastonbury,the camp shop took advantage of the fact that there isnt another shop around for miles,£1.50 for a tin of beans other items were equally overpriced,the showers should be on a pay as u use them,should you wish to use them,not reflected in the campsite fees,we were also charged £5.00 for an extra adult thats me Mum,£2.50 for my daughter aged 11,adding up to £28.50 per night to camp in a muddy field!!!the wardens sarcastic comments didnt go down well either,he said maybe we should" consider getting a smaller tent",why should we? camping is suppossed to be the Cheapest way to holiday so why shouldnt we have some comfort,we only took my daughter this time its a 6 berth tent next time my son might like to come,although that would be an extra £5 on top as hes now classed as an adult,these prices have got way out of hand,The National Trust is being far too greedy,if they are not careful they will outprice themselves, this will have an opposite effect on what they say they are trying to combat, people bringing family tents,we will definately not go back there nor to any other National Trust Camp Site as according to the warden they are" all the same"so they have lost our custom,how many others think the same and just dont comment but dont go back there,so what they are making by supplementing they are losing in full amounts.
