Very clean and tidy site, grass kept short on and around grass pitches. Toilet blocks were terrific, never had such a spacious shower. Both indoor and outdoor swimming pools were both clean and well kept. Some great views from the pitches as well.
Property manager response (15 Jul 2015)

We visited the park in our tourer in Feb and had a lovely stay. Building has started on a huge new facilities block with showers and toilets, campers kitchen, dry room for walkers and much more. This will be finished next year. Will definitely go back to see that. The weather was good so we could sit out and relax in the sun. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and tidy. Staff very friendly and helpful. Great site for walkers, beautiful countryside everywhere you look. We would recommend it to anyone.

We have stayed on this site 3 times and have found it to be fantastic. The staff are really friendly and the site is beautiful. It has a lovely swimming pool and the facilities are kept really clean. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a good central park on the Island.

An excellent site with good facilities, and friendly staff. Both pools are good and there are many things on site to keep kids occupied, pool tables, arcade, tv room etc. You will probably need levelling blocks on your pitch as the site is stepped on a hill and some pitches are not 100% level. A piece of advice, as the site does not have a clubhouse if you want to go out for a drink in the evening the nearest pub is a few miles away, however there is a local club in Newbridge where the site is situated, the people there are very friendly and it is within walking distance of the entrance to the site. You do however have to apply for membership to this club before you can use the club facilities. This has to be done at least 2 days before you want to use the club and membership lasts for one month for £2.50 (as of 2006) Ask at the site reception for details.
