Reviews of Venture Caravan Park

Ok, risk of me having the 'snob' factor here but here goes anyway. Only 1 previous review - 4 stars, a tad misleading really. The site is pretty dated; the pool is more of a large tub in a plastic greenhouse; the shop hardly ever open; the bar lacking in any atmosphere; the statics crammed in and varying in quality from lovely to having broken windows and the bathroom facilities, whilst reasonably clean were in need of a serious overhaul.

The site is adjacent to a football ground (and it was Saturday afternoon, albeit a pre-season friendly), close to a less than desirable estate which featured motorbikes at 3am racing and revving and all of this played out under the shadow of the local gasometer.

That said, given the right weather most of that could be put to one side and a good time had. The staff all seemed very friendly especially the lady behind the bar and the lady that ran the shop.

Personally we wouldn't go back and to be fair, if this site was slightly more realistic in its advertising, we probably wouldn't have gone there in the first place! For info we are a couple of 40 somethings without kids who would enjoy an empty field in the middle of nowhere, perhaps with a little pub nearby and plenty of piece and quiet. Its probably just a bad choice for us and would suit plenty of others!

Had a great time, campsite was kept spotless, kids loved the small heated pool and amenities were fab unfortunately it rained the whole time we were there but it didn't dampen our fun, the clubhouse was also good and price reasonable, only comment is the shop could have been open more.......will defo go back again xx
