    ...... well...... if you want to meet the sweetest, kindest, most patient, smiley lady warden then visit Tredegar House Caravan Club Site.

    I had booked online and they phoned me next morning to say they didn't have a fully serviced pitch my size, but would a standard pitch do, and they had saved me a site they thought would be easy to get into, but I could choose another if it didn't suit.

    A lovely kind, gentle welcome, from a lovely Welsh Lady.

    I said I would empty and fill before parking, and even though it was tipping down with rain the gentleman in the office came out to help see me back onto the pitch as well and check I was alright.

    Thank you Tredegar :)

    Yes they're both absolutely delightful aren't they? And just SOOOO helpful.
    According to @maz (who knows the couple well) this is their last winter season.

    Tredegar House site is rather special too I think with the fabulous House & grounds/park & easy to get to from the M4.

    I can only agree with our experience at Baltic Wharf this weekend.
    They couldn't do enough for us:)

    I agree as when I was involved in an accident on my scooter they went out of their way and beyond to help me - hospital, recovery service etc. it was almost worth getting hurt to see how human kindness has not vanished!

    Have used Tredegar House many times and ALWAYS been made welcome but then, perhaps we are lucky, but we have NEVER met any of the wardens that get written about. Back end of last year and beginning of this, over 8 weeks, we made it up as we went and used 7 'club' sites and 3 'private' and enjoyed them all sometimes staying several days more than we had booked.

    CC Brighton
    CC Folkestone
    Leobay, Sheppey
    Golden Grove, Great Salling
    C&CC Thetford Forest
    CC Sandringham
    CC Rutland
    CC Birmingham
    Briarsfield, Cheltenham
    C&CC Devizes

    Debs, there have even been people posting on this forum who have lost their rag and left a site because they couldn't cope with the wardens... :(

    Is that recently Joy???? The last few years we've been using cl's but we have gone back to club sites while we get used to the mh. The experiences have all been positive to be honest so far.

    Never had a bad experience from a CC warden. They've always been there with a smiling face and very helpful.

    In twenty years of tugging and four years with Moho, I have never had any problems with either the CC or C&CC wardens they have always been most helpful and cheerful. I suppose that if you do have a problem at all maybe its rubbing off from the campers attitude...I am always polite no matter what the issue and it pays off in my favour every time..... Just my opinion.

    I have always been surprised at the bad comments about the CC on FUN as we have never had a problem in 40yrs membership.

    Only had trouble with Wardens at two sites (I keep a log of the sites we have visited, so far 68 different sites) one was the Haven site at Burnham on Sea, and the other, sad to say after a couple of posts on here, was Baltic Wharf.
