Alan Rogers Review

This is a site you could either love or loathe. Unlike other campsites, it has a Medieval theme. An American theme park approach has been attempted here and we saw lots of families enjoying themselves. However, we also saw that there was a constant struggle to keep up with the high maintenance demands of such as populated site. There are 386 level pitches with bitumen access roads and gravel surfaces and some shade; 128 of these are for touring units. There are also 150 chalets to rent. At peak times amenities appear to be stressed.

The large pseudo-medieval dining room has a self-service menu, as has the breakfast room. Meals can be included in the daily rate here and many visitors take an inclusive package. However, some campers may find the circus-like chaos, the Medieval dinner and show with its knights in shining armour on horseback, the giant Excalibur looming above the pool area with its large playground, sauna, gym and underground indoor pool, enough compensation. This is a site where close attention needs to be paid to children’s welfare as the unfenced pools and giant play areas are side by side – there are slippery areas and steps without rails all in the same area.
