Oh dear ! please may I reply as I run and own a CCC Certificated site and we charge £10 per night with electric hook up.Summer costs us £30 a week petrol for cutting the grass with a £3000+ ride on mower. Together with yearly insurance, electrical check certificates, cdp emptying,site maintainance of roads and hardstanding bases and time involved doing all this we do not make alot of money.
MOST customers are very good but we have had to clear up after people and animals and one person who emptied their chemical blue loo into the field which seeped into the duck pond which could have killed the ducks ! This involved heavy plant equipment hire to clean up the pond.
We take our site very seriously and keep it to a very high standard. Next year come the loos and showers and again large amounts of money involved.
So far we have had only one negative comment about the price. Positive comments include "I think I have died and gone to heaven here"
We have met such lovely people from all walks of life and hope we continue to do so. Some sites suit some people, a field with no bases, no hookups and knee deep in mud, and one like ours well looked after will suit another !
