Reviews of Pexton Moor Farm

Recently returned from this campsite. On our arrival a sign stated ' Please keep noise to a reasonable level between 11.00pm and 7.00am'.

This was taken seriously from the site owners. In our two night stay we recieved two visits by the owner, to warn us about noise, and this tainted what would have otherwise been a perfect break in Dalby.

We were concerned that the owner would carry out her threat of 'scooping' our tent up with her tractors bucket and evicting us. Both nights we were in bed for 12pm - I have never come across this in 'family sites. I also note we were not the only campers to recieve this threat of eviction.

Both nights, we where in bed for 12 pm which for us is an early night on our usual camping trips.
As seasoned campers who often use 'family sites' I have never come across such a staunch set of rules. Can I quickly add we are all in our late 30's and 40's, played no music and are respectful of the site and our neighbours.

I note that although the owners where quick to reduce noise levels at 11.00 am, that there was no such intervention at 5 in the morning when we could hear a group of campers running through the fields 'whooping'

There is minimal hedgerows which I feel is the reason sound carries, also that the pitches are far too close to each other so, much you can hear your neighbours cough in the night.

We wont return again !
