Reviews of Riddings Wood Caravan and Camping Park

The site was massively overcrowded and with no actual pitches, tents and caravans were just stacked right next to each other to the point you couldn't even land guide ropes properly.

The site is one big steep hill, so staying in a tent is a real challenge and sleeping is basically impossible.

The site is next to a very busy road, although there isn't much to see or do the surrounding area.

The showers are nice and new but need to be three times as big for the amount of people they try and force into this small site.

There is a playground which is very nice for kids, but not overly safe when 40+ kids are on it at the same time. Not the fault of the children though as there is no room to play balls games or run around a every inch of the site has a tent or caravan on it. I've seen more room between tent as Glastonbury!

Apart from the playground and shower block, there are no facilities to speak of, not even a small shop or a shop within walking distance.

The staff really need some customer service training as you seem to be bothering them and all they want to do it point you in the direction of your tiny space between a camper van and another tent, on a hill, with no electric hook up (even after being promised we would have one) and then never see you again.

If you take a second to think about all the negative things you have experienced when camping, then you have an idea of what to expect when you visit this hill (sorry 'Site').

Never, Never Again!
