We arrived on Friday to discover that there was a rally for approx 400 bikers being held on the pub campsite next door! The pub apparently holds regular rallies and this one has been running for years, but did the site bother to mention it when we booked - no they didn't.
We had a hells game actually trying to find the site as there is no signage and when we did find it, we had to wait for about 20 minutes until the rally organisers had checked in 20+ bikers, before they would let us through their barrier so we could actually get to our campsite. The music from the rally was so loud it was making things in Minnie shake and it continued at full blast until 1:30am on both Saturday and Sunday mornings - we consequently had very little sleep.
Now on to the site itself, the grass is now growing, but contains an awful lot of thistles and even though we were on hard standing we both got covered in mud putting Minnie up in the rain!
The facilities block is way to small for the size of the site with only 1 shower in both ladies and gents which cost £1 to use! No seat or anything in the shower just 1 hook and a ring for your towel. In the ladies there was also two privacy cubicles (only 1for the gentlemen) and 2 toilets again not enough for the number of people staying this weekend. As far as I am aware the toilets were only cleaned this morning after everyone else but us had left, again not good enough. Only one standard size bin for rubbish as well when we arrived (although a second one did appear over the weekend, they were both overflowing by the time we left).
The hot water in the toilets was so hot, it was impossible to use it (no warning signs either) and the smell from the cess pit was horrible particularly yesterday when the wind had changed and was blowing in our direction.
Needless to say we will not be returning and I advise everyone else to steer clear as well!
