Have just returned from a 4 day stay at this site.Marketed as a tranquil site it is anything but.Located under the flight path of a local airfield helicopters will wake you at around 7pm and if you were hoping to catch an early night forget it a large pub/hotel opposite thumps out music until 11.30 or later.Although the facilities are well kept and clean the showers are tiny and water on a very short timer.This site is big on rules and short on enjoyment.
Property manager response (07 Sep 2010)
It is difficult to reply to this review as we cannot find a guest by this name or one with a Dorset address who has stayed here for any three, four or five nights between the 1st August & 6th Sept 2010,. I can therefore only reply in general terms
The park is not under any designated flight path from Norwich airport which is some 15 miles away or any other. The country inn in its own nine acres of grounds have occasional Saturday evening functions, some low level noise may be heard on a still night.. As a David Bellamy Gold conservation park we have timed regulators on a push button for showers by pushing the button several times each push adds to the length of time the water flows it is not necessary to wait until it stops. The main facility building was built some 20 years ago & has undergone several refurbishments in that time the last was in 2009 the shower cubicles measure 77 inches x 30 & some what wider in the new building (2009 built) at 58inches x 47 inches, neither would be considered tiny.
Should any guest raise an issue with us personally we will endeavour if justified to settle it to everyone’s satisfaction. The visitor mentions the park rules as being ‘heavy‘, it would seem likely from what they write that they have been asked to comply with one or more of them, possibly after a complaint from another guest to which they have taken exception. The Park rules are there to ensure all guests have an enjoyable & safe visit. We have a large number of commendations in our visitors book regrettably few of our well satisfied guests take the time to send in reviews.
