Emma, on this campsite in September 2019

Travelling party: Couple

A beautiful and convenient location at this site and a warm welcome from the site owners, when they were there. Immaculate toilets but we felt the site didn\'t have much atmosphere. It\'s spread out in rows but can\'t quite put our finger on what was missing. It was quiet due to the time of year and temperature but most of all, we were disappointed that we had not been told that we would be wise to book a table at the restaurant for that evening if we wanted one. When we turned up, we were refused a table by a very rude waitress, very frustrating when we were staying on the site and not given any warning. Sadly for this reason, we won\'t be returning. Such a shame as great location, and a beautiful area.
