Sounds perfect.

PredictableDullard Sat 18-Jun-11 22:11:33

agreed it sounds great but they don't half go on about it. esp. the patrols

TheBolter Sat 18-Jun-11 22:12:30

Sounds wonderful, might go grin.

I like campsites that take noise issues seriously!

groak Sat 18-Jun-11 22:15:40

Sounds perfect! Would love to go! Oh to onot listen to boozy folk / bickering folk / brattish kids whose parents can't be arsed reining them in late at night...

are english campsites really bad?

erebus Sat 18-Jun-11 22:16:16

Hurrah! Where do I book?

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 18-Jun-11 22:20:30

sounds like utter bliss. Sometimes english campsites can be really really bad, large groups, often families, fine in the day but can't hold their alcohol.

AuraofDora Sat 18-Jun-11 22:24:35

did you see the small print - three loud farts and your out..

OhYouBadBadKitten Sat 18-Jun-11 22:29:07

thats ok, I cam practise farting quietly.

EggyAllenPoe Sat 18-Jun-11 22:34:36

um, most sites are quiet so far as i've been to them. last one i wen tot, itbelted down with rain, andthe noise in the tent was phenomenal (with trees weighed down with water bashing the roof) wailed disconsolately for about an hour.

i think i heard someone yelling at us to be quiet..jsut as she gave up and fell asleep. what did they want me to do, switch her off?

TheGashlycrumbTinies Sat 18-Jun-11 22:41:33

Sounds heavenly.

DontCallMeBaby Sat 18-Jun-11 22:51:55

It's silly - I really want to camp on a quiet site, and noise really winds me up, but then I read those rules and think 'sounds a bit joyless' ... no pleasing me, apparently.

I would be concerned that after my wine and book (perfect way to spend an evening) my snoring would probably be heard outside the pitch boundaries.

poorbuthappy Sat 18-Jun-11 22:54:37

I couldn't read past the "as long as your here to surf" sentence.
My eyes started itching.

c0rn55ilk Sat 18-Jun-11 22:54:41

reading all that gives the impression that they hate children
'As there is no entertainment provided we don’t appeal to teens, which is a start. '

fivegomadindorset Sat 18-Jun-11 22:56:44

Maybe not to teens, but their playground looks lovely so families with younger children.

Noop Sat 18-Jun-11 22:58:02

I'd be worried in case I couldn't get my kids to go to bed, especially the first night when they are high as kites to be on holiday and camping! I've never had noise issues when camping, or caravanning.

Lovecat Sat 18-Jun-11 23:32:58

And it's £23.50 a night for a tent of any size at all, before you start adding on your children!shock

Do they actually want anyone to stay there? I'd be terrified of snorting aloud at a funny bit in my book and be turfed out for not reading in the absolute silence required!

I agree, Noop, I'd be living in terror of DD not going down in their timeframe... not a relaxing holiday at all!

And yes, the 'your here to surf' sets my teeth on edge....

amistillsexy Sat 18-Jun-11 23:52:12

It would cost about £45 a night for us to stay there. That's £315 for their 'recommended' 7-night stay shock.
We started camping because it was supposed to be the cheaper option!

I don't mind the noise curfew, one of my fave campsites has a similar rule and I have been know to ring the 'noise patrol' mobile to dob people in wink.

I love these bits though -

'There is also the use of the receptionist' grin

'There are a selections of different animal on the campsite to keep you entertained including our 23 tame ducks that live at the park, Numerous guineapigs which breed like rabbits and an aviary which has lot of birds to watch flying around.' gringrin

And they say they have no entertainment? Hell, there is nothing I like better than to watch guinea pigs shag and birds 'flying around'.

Agree they need a serious spell/punctuation/grammar check.

TrinityIsAShreddingFatRhino Sun 19-Jun-11 09:31:42

are you not allowed to talk?

I'm confused

PredictableDullard Sun 19-Jun-11 10:13:39

it doesn't have any reviews on ukcampsite which is ominous

DontCallMeBaby Sun 19-Jun-11 10:18:36

I know of a holiday establishment where the ducks, chickens, rabbit, chipmunks etc are definitely the on-site entertainment ... it's the cattery use use. grin Don't worry, the guests and the entertainment are kept carefully separated.

Having been perusing a lot of campsite websites lately, it seems it's hard to describe any rules or restrictions without sounding incredibly arsey. For instance, Henry's Campsite, which sounds very laid-back and hippy - "We love dogs, but we hate poo! We do not tolerate any on site, whether you pick it up or not." Erm - do you have to put your dog in a nappy? Or just have quick reactions and catch the poo?

DontCallMeBaby Sun 19-Jun-11 10:24:34

The cattery WE use, don't know wtf happened to my typing there. confused

hpsaucy Sun 19-Jun-11 17:03:16

wish I knew about this site earlier, would have recommended to it to the miserable sod in the tent behind us last week, he complained at 10.30 that he could hear our conversation!!!!!
