    Grrr, Adult only campsite + Children visiting...

    I am on an Adult only CL.

    My neighbours have visitors with 3 kids who are now rawping around, kicking a football and generally making a lot of noise round the side of my van...:Angry:

    I am trying to concentrate on work which I have to get finished today...:Angry:

    They did give me some entertainment earlier as they were messing with the horses. They got caught by the electric fence and one of the horses snorted a load of grass laden snot all over another....:Rofl1:

    If they had come onto the site and gone straight into my neighbours van I wouldn't have a problem with them... Why do people think it is ok to bring children onto an adult only site and then let them run around, kick a football and be noisy?

    I now have a three year old crying it's head off not 5 meters from my van:Angry:

    Popeye, I really don't mind kids when they are in suitable places. I love my 3 nephews and enjoy spending time with them. I however take them to play parks and leisure centers NOT adult only campsites or Pubs...

    Well spotted Treacle:thumb::thumb::thumb: (Fixed)

    Anyway, after standing outside my van chatting, shouting and laughing they have finalled F$£"$ed off:thumb::Rofl1:...

    I can now get on with my work...

    My previous thread about wildcamping and destressing can safely be ignored now. If I was wilding this afternoon I would have started the engine and moved elsewhere... Not so much an option when you have paid good money...

    My nightmare is pulling up on a site with x 2 kids and have a grumpy Victor Mildrew next door.
    I suppose we were all kids once?

    You could always lounge in the sun in your birthday suit.

    When challenged, explain it's adults only! They will soon clear off!:thumb:

    Or give you a perv-bashing!:Laughing:

    Gromett is absolutely right to be annoyed by kids being allowed on an adult site, just as I would be by complaints about kids on a family site.

    Two gay blokes arrived camping (sorry :Smile: ) beside us recently and were telling me how peaceful the site seemed.
    Then my wife arrived with our kids and a couple of cousins for a sleepover.
    The guys' eyes grew wider and wider as six kids climbed out of the car and trooped into the van!

    With a little mutual consideration, though, a great time was had by all :thumb:

    I think you might be missing the point here. The site is adults ONLY. No kids allowed. Some of us like peace and quiet and look for adult only sites so we don't have to go all Victor Meldrew....

    If you see me on Rallies you will know that I am fine with kids and am happy to have them around.... However when I specifically need/want peace and quiet I choose adult only sites and think it is extremely rude and inconsiderate to not only bring children onto an adult only campsite but then to get the football out and play noisily with them...


    PS: I am sure you wouldn't book onto a campsite that says adults only, you are way to considerate to do that aren't you?:thumb:

    I have four children (that I own upto). I love children but I like parents to look after their children. When I say look after them I mean don't send them off to play near someone elses space..............

    And what are they doing on an adults only site? Your site owner has breached the advertising standards..........................:Angry::Angry::Angry:

    Im with you Grommet ,
    if i had paid for an adult only site and had to put up with what you did , i would have been p'd off. You normally pay more for such sites too.
    Dont get me wrong i love our kids , and other well behaved ones , but if i was on an adult only site i would expect it to be adult only. At all times. Letting them run about kicking a ball making a racket it as you say taking the Michael.
    Finally as our kids are older now, we dont get plonked in the middle of the family area .
    Not that we stay on big noisy sites that often. Only when we fancy a swim , of do some washing:BigGrin:

    If it was a dog free site , would they allow visiting dogs to run around ?
    Maybe the other campers were on a permanent pitch , they seem to get away with more.

    Has the site manager/owner gone on his holidays too ?

    find him and get your point across loudly.

    a family site is just that...family, an adult site is for adults only.

    cant have an adult only site with kids present. :Doh:

    Mate the second they appeared outside with their football, you should have been hammering on the C/L owners door:Sad:

    Kids or no kids, love 'em or hate 'em, What don't they understand, it's only two words,





    ADULTS ONLY

    I recently stayed on an adults only site at Thornton le Dale which allowed no under 18s on site. Some noisy adults around though, some people don't realise how sound carries.
