Nicely maintained pitches that are a little close to each other. Facilities adequate but could be updated.

Showers are a bit small and cramped in the ladies with more cubicles needed for the amount of pitches. Ratio of showers...

Had a lovely meal on Sunday for a family birthday. Really nice food. Only complaint was that the chips were not 'skin on' as advertised. Think they were just oven/frozen chips which was a disappointment. Feta cheese tart and mushroom pate starters were tasty. Mixed grill main was loaded with meat and the thickest piece of gammon I've seen !...

Lovely site with good facilities. The food in the pub is amazing and very reasonably priced. Only one negative, don't think the toilets were mopped out all weekend, they weren't dirty, but the floor was covered in grass.

Hi Tim Thanks for your review, glad you enjoyed your stay. I can assure you the toilets and showers get cleaned every morning, but as they are used constantly get dirty quickly, even more so when it rains. We have left mops and buckets out in the past but always get stolen Hope to see you again soon Regards Paul,...

Stayed at the Grouse and Claret for a week whilst work was being done on my new kitchen, The staff and Management were very attentive always on hand if you needed anything, Nothing was to much trouble. Meals in the restaurant were very reasonable considering its a hotel and service was quick and efficient. I would highly recommend going.
