Touring caravan holiday – April 2015

Rating: 9/10

Friendly welcome on arrival, though despite being asked if we had stayed before, we were not advised where the facilities were, Elsan etc. We had a gorgeous pitch overlooking the duck pond, with plenty of grass around us.

There is a really nice dog walk at the end of the site, with the river on one side, the canal feeder on the other. It’s about a 10 min stroll each way, so, ideal for a morning walk with the pooch.

The site and facilities are beautifully maintained, the wardens take great pride in the whole site and it shows.

However, the shower block is woefully heated, in the ladies there is a fan heater above the entrance which had no impact on warming such a large space. The windows are vented and you needed to close them to keep the wind out. Sadly it made no difference to the temperature, blooming freezing! Not the standard you expect in today’s market. The shower itself was lovely and hot. Speaking to fellow campers, we all had the same gripe.

Noise from the motorway was an issue for us, we don’t hear any road noise where we live, however we chatted to folk from Manchester and they were not aware of it, and by night 3 we could block it out.

Wifi was excellent value, £5 for 3 nights, and the signal very strong, we ran a laptop and iPad at the same time.

The Site is one we would happily return to, with so much to see on the doorstep or further afield.
