i think it might be a bit lively

FillydoraTonks Tue 17-Jul-07 18:36:42


bad lively?

not lots of kiddies squealing in blytonesq joy at the perwinkles they've found?

maybe a bad lively, esp down the pub end, sand dunes bit more relaxed.

is there likely to be much of a choice about which end we go for?

quite noisy, I'd have thought

very laid back, no quiet hours iirc

will there be pitches, do you reckon?

apparently you cannot book

mazzystar Tue 17-Jul-07 18:45:00

yes, its enormous

haven't been at bank hol but hot summer weekends. keep driving away from the main bit as you can and its quite mellow. and they have rules about noise and camping distances between groups of people.

i have fallen into the "its wales so its close to cardiff" trap yet again

my review is there. I went there last year with my mate. We had the bbest time. Not on the coast, but within easy driving distances.

Owners are campers themselves. Mrs Owner was an extended b/f and child minder, what more could a mn etter ask for?

If you go, please send them my best, they were great!
