Alan Rogers Review

Royal Umpire is a spacious park near the coast and the M6 for overnight or longer stays. The entrance to the park is past a large, grass area leading to the security barrier with reception immediately to the left; slightly ahead is an unusual sunken garden area that is a pleasing feature. Comprising 60 acres, the park has 195 pitches, almost all with 10A electricity, but a few with 16A. Six new pitches with their own WC and shower cubicles, and five grass pitches with electricity have been added. Four camping pods are to rent. About 75 per cent of the pitches now have gravel hardstanding, some have TV and water connections. A large proportion of the touring pitches are taken for seasonal use. Parents should be aware that there are unfenced ponds on the site.

A rally field can accommodate large groups and events. Tarmac and gravel roads connect the various pitch areas. There is a shop within 100 yards and a good choice of pubs nearby serving bar and restaurant meals.


Two modern, heated, toilet blocks, one beside reception, the other centrally situated. Fully equipped laundry. Very good facilities for disabled visitors that are shared with baby facilities (key access, £20 deposit). Adventure playground. Field for ball games. Rally field. Dog exercise area. Picnic area. Free WiFi over part of site. Charcoal barbecues are not permitted.
