Found this site very good. Took our grandchildren but would go back on our own.

This review is for Ashbourne

Found this site very good. Took our grandchildren but would go back on our own. Close to the town (5 mins car journey) and also close to some great walks and pubs doing food. We found the staff most helpful and the site was very clean. Only negative point was that we believe the childrens play area could benefit from a swing for toddlers to sit in.

This review is for Ashbourne

We had to rearranget our original visit as I was injured, but this was done quickly without aby problem. When we arrived we were welcomed by a friendly lady who gave me all the information and then we were met by a gentleman on a bike who guided us to our pitch. Our pitch was possibly furthest from the main amenities, but this was not an issue as the night loo (which my kids loved) Was much closer by for when you needed it. My children made a friend and enjoyed playing on the play area, which was close by. We felt that the site was incredibly safe, the children enjoyed exploring but we could always see them. The site was peaceful in the evening and so peaceful in the morning even the children slept in. We made use of the site shop for some ice creams but would have used it more if it was open longer hours, however understandably the opening hours are relatively short as it is open for arrivals and departures. The facilities are very clean, I never saw them anything less than immaculate. There were plenty of loos and a family bathroom was a great addition as I have found some facilities a bit cramped with two girls in tow before! As this site is not far for us we will definitely be back, it feels like a holiday regardless of distance as it is so lovely and peaceful.

This review is for Ashbourne

We stayed in the sites apartment, Site Managers Gabriel & Denise made us very welcome when we arrived, explained how heating controls etc worked, and left us to settle in peacefully, they checked daily if not more if everything was ok and whether there was anything they could help or advise with, beautiful scenery all around site. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay we are returning for a month in mid July this year and can't wait to go back, you will have a great time. Whole site lovely and clean and lovely evening or day walks available, site has its own wild flower meadows and lake which was stunning.

“A friendly and peaceful site, the showers and toilets are spotless and Ashbourne is only a 5 min drive away. There is a dog walk and even though it is a short walk its a peaceful walk first thing in the morning listening to the many birds attracted to the site due to the conservation being carried out. We would definitely use this site again for a peaceful short break. One tip don't follow sat nav.”
