The opening of the gates is fast approaching, and all the jobs are getting completed.
At this time of the year, we always think back to the previous seasons and most importantly what we have learnt along the way. As a lot of regular guests will know, we were complete novices when we arrived here back in 2012, and so we had to learn quickly.
One thing we learnt quickly is that we cannot be all things to all campers. We came here with a good idea of how we wanted our campsite to be, and we have pretty much stuck to this. Our general idea and ethos, seems to work well. So many of our guests comment on the extremely relaxed, respectful and very friendly atmosphere on the campsite, which is created by our guests.
However, we do also like to learn from our guests, and there are always ways we can improve the campsite, even if it is just tweaking, whilst staying true to ourselves and not resting on our laurels. This is where our guests reviews come in very useful indeed, although of course this is only one way to use independent reviews. Reviews are great for us, and it enables new guests to get independent views of The Meadows before making the all important decision as to is it a campsite for them!
John and I, of and of course Harvey too who often gets a mention really appreciate the feedback you give us, and it is great for us to know that we are making our guests happy.

Some of our favourite comments, although there are so many that make us smile,
“WOW!! That just about sums up the The Meadows…
Lovely owners, Lynn is very attentive and knows just about everywhere to go to have a good time.
We loved the pop up cocktail bar and pizza guys. The pizza was soooo delicious.
They had two very happy campers even if the weather was a bit hit and miss. Loved the campfires and the decorated tents. I would highly recommend The Meadows. Peaceful, fun and delightful. Thanks for having us!”- August 2015.
“We loved it so much we have already sent in a request to go back next year!! We arrived as guests and left as friends. Can’t wait to go back! Thank you again” – August 2015
