first time using c&c site we were impressed, friendly & allowed us to choose pitch, although it was may half term holiday the site was pretty quiet particularly on the tent field. some of the pitches had been damaged by previous occupants & the weather but we were advised which we could choose from. We found the facilities clean and warm, although a bit of a walk from the tent field, but a single toilet had been provided closer that was adequate at night. A small shop in the reception appeared expensive and minimal in stock when viewing on arrival, we didn't use it during our stay. There is a charge for freezing icepacks. The playground was good for kids although it rained all of our stay so we didn't get to use it.
The washing up facilities could have been better thought out as there are 3 sinks in a tiny undercover area, but on the left hand side you cannot have someone drying as someone washes due to there not being enough room. The water for it was temperamental and needed the tap constantly holding down to try and get anywhere near filling a sink with hot water. The other problem is if you have small children with you they either run near the elsan point or into the site road while you wash up.
Overall we had a pleasant camp despite the weather, we did go out everyday in the car to places.

This was our first outing in our campervan and the site was lovely. We had a great spot facing the fields and the dog loved the walks around the pond and in the fields.
Toilet / Shower Blocks are excellent as well as the area to wash up.
The owners will even cook stonebaked pizza's on certain days well worth it.
Defiantly be back

“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.”
