Not all of our family are great lovers of camping. Some are, but those who aren’t need to be promised of a particularly good campsite in order to tolerate it (and to remain in a mood throughout the trip that’s tolerable to everyone else!)
Much to our relief on arriving at East Fleet Farm for a weekend with the children, our friends and their children, it was immediately clear this was going to be one of the good ones.
We had a tent pitch in the ‘Stable Field’ and were immediately impressed with the whole site.
The field itself was perfect – lovely, freshly-mown grass, flat and soft with plenty of space between tents.
A lovely view over the beach and sea – and generally quiet surroundings.
The facilities were really good – great personal shower cubicles, where you get your own toilet, shower and sink – so a much more private and civilised arrangement than the usual blocks of showers you often get on similar campsites.
Every time I went in to the toilets and showers they were absolutely pristine clean, at all times of the day and night – something I’ve never experienced on any campsite before.
Maybe we got lucky, as it wasn’t peak season and we were only there for two nights, but all the facilities – the toilets, showers, washing up area, etc were almost as clean as I’d expect at home!
Added to this, there’s an on-site pub, so if the weather is dreadful, you know you’ve got somewhere warm and dry to escape to.
And there was an on-site fish and chip van that was a god-send after arriving late and struggling to put the tent up for 2-hours.
A great campsite – and well worth the money!
