Not a pleasant experience.

Stayed at other sites this season and happy with their service so it's not like our standards are too high. Arrived at the site on Friday afternoon at about 6pm. No staff on site after 5pm which seems a little unusual as a lot of people set off for the weekend after they've finished work at 5pm. Kick the wife out of the car to look at the site map for our pitch. We're marked in as pitch 24 in 'The Meadow'. Pull into the touring section. 'The Paddock' area signposted to the left and 'The Meadow' off to the right. Follow the sign to the right and pitch 24 is there on the right. The ground is uneven, but someone has put lots of blocks to the side to assist with levelling the van. Park the van on the pitch and spent about 30mins levelling up when another caravaner pulls up telling us we're in the wrong pitch. To cut a long story short, we were on the wrong pitch. The pitch we were on was still on 'The Paddock' so if you're marked as being pitched on 'The Meadows' make sure you drive past the toilet block before you even consider pitching up.

When away in the van it is my job to take my 2yr old son for a shower in the morning. Not on this site. There are no baby changing facilities that can be used by fathers. When going to the toilet make sure you're no longer than a couple of minutes at night either as the sensor is outside the toilet cubicle and can get embarrassing when young children enter just at that moment your pants are round your ankles and waving your hand frantically outside the cubicle door.

We both left saying we would never return. Its a shame really as the site is very idillic with drinking water points close by, it's not a site we will be revisiting.

Sorry you had a bad experience on our site. You'll be pleased to know we have addressed many of your issues. Reception is now open until 8pm on a Friday. The pitches have all been renumbered so no confusion can occur. Baby changing is available in the female toilets and also in the family showering area, which can be used by all parents. The lighting sensor has also been altered to increase the length of time the light stays on. We are confident that should you return you would have a pleasant stay.

I arrived on the Friday evening with friends staying till late Sunday afternoon. Langcliffe is a nice safe site for children. The only thing I would criticize is the state of the toilets.
1. Not enough facilities in the gents i.e. only3 showers, 3 toilets and 3 urinals. I think this must be a major problem when the site is full.
2. These facilities are not what I would call clean, in the sinks that have plugs there is grease and hair in the plug hole and a strong smell comes out from there when the hot water is run. Even after the cleaner has been in they don’t give the impression of being clean and I would think they are not cleaned very often if at all.
3. On the Sunday before we left the cleaner had cleaned the toilets but there was still a strong smell of urine. I would suggest not only a mop but strong disinfectant be used also lots of hot water and a Squeegee be used.
4. My girlfriend said the same about the ladies.

Rant over, I would be happy to go back if the above was sorted.
