Every member of staff we came across from reception, bar staff, groundsmen and gardeners we polite and cheerful. Toilet block and showers were always spotless while we were there. The...

Have been on this park on the bank holiday weekend (something completely different) with the whole family and we had an outstanding holiday, beyond expectation. Facilities are super clean and modern (especially the showers), reception had a nice small shop (which saved my morning as I ran out of milk), kids loved the outdoor pool and the play park, and...

We have stayed at this stunning park twice during this summer and have been very impressed on both occasions. The park itself is extremely well equipped with superb facilities, from the laundry to the shop. The toilets and shower block ( both men's and ladies) were exceptionally clean and myself being disabled my shower was superb. The pool is great...

Check in smooth on arrival. Directed to pitch that was on very firm, flint strewn ground, but we managed to erect tent without too much trouble. Facilities are pretty good. Pool is heated and surrounding area is excellent. Toilets are not cleaned as regularly or efficiently as would one have hoped, but are acceptable. Club house is worth a visit,...

The welcoming staff weren't very friendly but someone showed us to our pitch which was a nice touch. It's a good sized campsite not too large or small. One downside was a bit of traffic noise in the morning but that wasn't too much of an issue. Lovely recently refurbished shower block but we were only given one key which...

Some of my family were staying at this site for 4 days and invited me to spend the last 2 days with them. My dad took me, and when we arrived, we were told we were not allowed through to main site until we paid for my 2 nights staying there, which we obviously took as a reasonable request. We...

The tents were packed in quite right almost on top of each other. No real open space for the children to play in within sight of the tent. Showers were lovely, toilets were fine and were being renovated this year I believe. Wifi was awful, really slow and only worked near the club house. Lots of noise from M20 and...
