Just back from a week in the depths of Cornwall at a campsite. I can only liken it to spending a week parked in a school playground :eek: Impossible to get any peace due to the amount of kids running around like lunatics with as far as we could see, no parental control whatsoever. :madder:
Suppose it serves me right for booking, but I thought the little darlings would still be at School?

Simbadog, your post really struck a cord with us, as we are currently on a wonderful site just outside Littleport, Cambs and alongside the River Ouse. It's an adults only site, and the owner doesn't even allow children in here as visitors ! It's as quiet as quiet can be.........absolute bliss. Adults only is the answer. (y)

you should have asked them about the fines for missing school in their area

they were unlikely to ask you round for drinks any way I would guess :D

Simba .... they would have been foreigners from up north with them short people.
schools have only just broken up down here in the main.
Better half is a teacher so any break away is away from them .... and I like peace and calm ......

and lots of wine:)

I'm having the same problem right now and only reinforces why I dislike campsites ,currently on a site in france in "St question en tourmont" in lille ....there's what I can only describe as a rave still ongoing at 11.20 ...i wish my french was better as the owner of the site would get an earful , only came in to a site tonight as we catch ferry from calais first thing Friday morning so probably park at dock tommorrow night and the other half wanted a shower and a chilled BBQ etc

The sign outside said €15 for van and 2 ..We somehow got charged €18.40 with no electric by a half cut french man ....sited us 3 spaces from the park full of noisy kids...shower tokens €1 gives you 7 minutes of hell with water going of every 2 seconds hoards of young lads charging in and out of shower block throwing things around and banging doors, disco started at 9 pm and is still going ...meanwhile owner/warden is siting getting pissed with a group of guys outside his office didn't seem the least bit concerned when I tried to tell him kids were trashing the shower block

If I didn't have a BBQ still lit I'd be off


Give me wild camping anytime

Incidentally that rave/disco I mentioned is still going on at 1 pm and shows no sign of stopping soon

Thank god for trip advisor as I've just left them a lovely review

Officially the worst site I've ever been on

It was half term in Devon last week, probably the same elsewhere. So if you want it quiet, especially by the sea, avoid school holidays and half-terms.

That`s it! Pull up with the MH ,kick the kids out, hook up , get out beer.(y) Then--

Wait for all the Victor Meldrews in the area to come out of hiding with faces like thunder,and say to the Mrs, "Look dear , there`s a grumpy old sod over there"

These new fangled water blasters are complicated to fill for kids, so i usually do the filling up while my little soldiers go off and squirt other louder kids and the odd miserable moaner.

It`s just like Gaza there at times, don`t know how campers can possibly put up with it.

Maybe next time i`ll tie them up , give them orders to ,---- Sit down ,be quiet,don`t move don`t run, just like those older folks over there:D
