A WEEKEND AWAY.
Click on any picture to enlarge it.
This picture here is of the heated outdoor swimming pool, alongside is the shallow kiddies paddling pool,they are both supervised by a lifeguard at all times, this allows for family peace of mind. The building shown is the main reception area, shop, pub, restaurant, toilets etc.
The picture below shows just how close its possible to locate a caravan/awning or trailer tent to the 5 lakes.
Here is the tent up and ready to go, notice the hard standing, this is made up of old road Tarmac ground up and is an ideal base as strong pegs can still be used.
Sue couldn't resist a quick picture of me as I'm unsuspecting and looking the other way.You can see on this picture the pegs have a healthy gap in between each one.
This was taken just after getting up on the first morning, it shows the beds either side and the centre table with my night breathing gear. Under the table is a fully fused box which connects to the mains and has three outlets.
This picture shows the large windows and curtains that Sue made. Rod bags are on the floor behind the table, the groundsheet (we guessed the size) was just about a foot short all round.
This was, as the picture shows the kitchen area, we also had a fridge (on the left)+ an electric kettle and a Toaster, all mod cons eh. In the bottom left hand corner is my oxygen making machine (called a concentrator). The camp site is family run and has been since it opened 20 or more years ago, this shows with the thought put into it.The owners and family are regularly seen working around the site and shop.Their are three sets of showers/toilet/ blocks and two extra sets of toilets plus 5 chemical disposal points around the site, each of these has an outdoor (under cover) utensil washing area. As well as Camping it also has both Static and touring van areas. Also available are all year seasonal caravan pitches, holiday chalets and cottages too. The five Coarse fishing lakes contain quite a mixed head of fish and fished reasonably well both days we fished, my only very minor criticism would be about children running, shouting, riding scooters etc around the fishing lakes, (I did not get out my £300 pole for fear of it being trodden on) but I know this is very difficult to police I appreciate that.
As far as cleanliness and friendliness goes this site is second to none, staff put themselves out for each and everyone who come here. Me being disabled they asked if we needed any assistance of any sort and told me to sort out a peg area that suited us.
All in all this is a superb family site that both Sue and I would highly recommend to anyone without question, in fact, we will be back. Last but not least I thought the tarrifs were very very reasonable, with reductions for pensioners /disabled too.
For some reason known only to blogger, it refuses to allow me to put any text or joke of the day below this picture, so my apologies.
