Campsite is pleasant enough, the communal cabin is a nice touch.
However, we did not get what we booked. We booked for 2 adjacent hard standing pitches, with 5 tents pitched around them.
In reality the 2 hard standing pitches were on opposite sides of the field and the 5 tents were situated in the middle, not near either of the hard pitches. Most annoyingly both hard standing pitches had empty ones next to them.
I was travelling solo with 2 very young children, under the premise that I would be surrounded by family. This was not the case and it was therefore quite a stressful experience.
