    That's strange, we've been going there for 4/5 years (at least 3 times a year) and have always found them to be extremely friendly. We were last there at the beginning of the month and heading there again in July.

    Maybe we caught them on a bad day !! Not the best welcome and were not allowed to park next to friends who had arrived the day before even though tgey had told them we were booked and would like to be together ! Pitches either side of them stayed empty all the time we were there :cry:

    None except that this was the pitch they had allocated for us !!! Could tell by her attitude there was no point in arguing !!!

    If I remember rightly was fairly expensive too .

    hmm not good .. I guess we all have off days but that's no excuse..

    I thought perhaps they may have been re seeding the other two pitches.. but then they usually barrier them off

    We have stayed there and liked it. However they cannot use all the pitches due to their licence. From memory its only half of the pitches they have. if you look at where their electric points are you will know why. The lower pitches are often flooded and usuable for the rest of the year and sometimes some of the following one.

    They may have been resting the pitches next to your friends. We always found the owners friendly and very helpful.
