This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Having spent one night here, being a hide-away site I wasn't expecting the same amenities as on larger sites....but I was expecting it to be clean. Sadly it wasn't. The Ladies toilet floor looked like it had not been cleaned for some time, and my husband told me that the gents weren't much better.Apart from there being no toilet paper ,there was a pair of ladies knickers left on the floor!! If my husband had not have already paid the�10 site fee(electric hook-up was another �3 pounds extra !!) we would have left. In this years site book it stated to be rated H and IZ for �10.According to the site book it was inspected in 2012,may I suggest that another inspection is due, to save fellow club members being as disappointed as we were. We have been members for many years,but this is the first time I have given a negative review.

We stayed here at the last minute as we thought it looked good in the Big Sites Book. However, the price, as stated in another review, was actually £12 a night, not £10 to £11 as in the BSB, and another 50p in an honesty box for a shower. The pub is about 3 miles away, not within a mile as stated in the BSB, and "surrounded by woodland walks" is misleading. The woodland walk is roughly the length of the field and, although it has been landscaped with fairies and things in it, it takes approximately 5 minutes to stroll round.
The site is on a bus route to Southport, 6 miles away, with buses running approximately every hour during the day.
The toilets and showers are new and there is only one of each for each sex.
The camping field itself is very nice and level. The hardstanding area was taken up with two very large motorhomes and a horse box which looked as if they were permanently lived in. However, because the weather was so hot and dry, the field was perfect.
Altogether, we were disappointed as we were looking for woodland walks for the dogs and a pub to walk to in the evening.

We stayed here as we had family that lived near by. When we arrived we were met and greeted by a fellow camper who helps out. We did not actually meet the owner until Monday (the day we were leaving) to pay. A very quite site, lovely to hear the wildlife. The park was not completed so my son only had the slide as the swings wasn't attached. Grass very bumpy and had many holes and can be a bit dangerous when covered with a ground sheet. Only other thing really is the cost. The big sites book states Â£8-Â£9 per night, the website states Â£9-Â£10 yet we were actually charge Â£12. Check this before you book. Would of been a beautiful site for Â£8 but at Â£12 i think there is room for improvement.
