We visited this campsite in Aug 2006 with a large group of friends and their children. We were pitched in the paddock which has spacious pitches around a large grassed area. The area was brilliant for playing rounders and cricket. We had several children over the age of 10, who were well able to hit the ball, but they never managed to hit it anywhere near any of the pitches. It was lovely that they could play within site of our tents and caravans. The pool was also very popular, yes it was cold, but that didn't seem to bother the kids who were desperate to visit each day. The children enjoyed the free range chickens that wandered around, and were impressed when the farrier came to shoe the horses. All in all they had a lovely time and can't wait to visit again. I booked the site after reading Thornton's Holt website, but was concerned when I later read the reviews on this website. However having just spent a week at the site, I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone looking for a child friendly campsite. The facilities may not be up to caravan club standards, but they were always clean. The showers were hot and had good pressure. (I was able to shower and wash my hair for 20p.) The shop was well stocked with basics, anything else could be purchased from a large Morrisons about 3-4 miles away. The site produce their own information book which tells you not only about the site, but also information about the local area.

We live locally to this site and wanted to take the children away for a long weekend. It seemed to have everything we needed. On getting there, the receptionist was rude and unhelpful, but as we found, this was the least of our problems! On the third night, after running a fridge in the car, I attempted to turn over the engine and found the battery had died. A few of us attemepted to push start the car, only to be screamed at by the owner and told to leave it in the morning along with some unrepeatable words, all of which in front of my children(6 & 8)! It was 9.30, hardly late! The facilities are awful, toilets dirty, I even went home daily to have a shower as I refused to use the ones supplied at the site! The games room is a joke and the swimming pool was nothing great! All in all, a very unpleasant stay, apart from the local pub which went down a treat with everyone! BEWARE, DO NOT USE THIS SITE IF YOU WANT ANY FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!
