After booking via email and was told that it was ok to arrive late on a bank holiday weekend. We were met with a grumpy reception, moaning that it was a bank holiday.
We managed to find a spot without ankle deep mud in the dark and pitched our tent.
The facilities were basic and a bit run down. There was a wc and a shower in the mens and ladies. And two sinks outside for washing your dishes with running hot water. Just what you needed. We didn’t try out the showers but looked like they would do the job.
We woke up to find a nice view over the river, which we had heard in the dark. The site was a bit of mud field, but when dry this place would do the job just fine.

This site would have received more oinks if we were grated differently. It got it all, hot showers, toilets and beautiful settings, but not the best welcome you expect.
