Maybe that’s a good thing. That’s what caught out so many last year I.e. ‘vans drained up then “The Beast from the East” hit. I was told by one specialist van plumber that he was kept busy for going on 3 months after that.

We will be back on site tomorrow after our short nine day closure. We have spent the time at our daughters after they took us on a short break to Wales. We have had a great time and enjoyed too many meals out. I'm going on a diet as soon as we get back to the van.


Also looking forward to a new Wi-Fi system. Apart from that, there is little that the park can improve on.

Bear in mind....There is Wi Fi and there is Wi Fi.....Some sites only have basic Wi Fi signal which allows checking e mail etc ?....When everyone decides to stream the latest block buster the whole system grinds to a halt ?....So check with your site 1st as to what their Wi Fi is intended for ?

Ours will be up to 30MB and allow you to stream films, Netflix etc. A brand new system to the park should be available from tomorrow. There are three packages, if you go for the cheapest, you should be able to get uninterrupted cover for emails etc. The middle package is 10 Mb and should give streaming quality. It's available on a month to month basis so if you won't be visiting the park for a month or over, you can cancel and restart when you arrive back. That suits us as we will go back to Spain in May and arrive back in September

Best of luck with that. It certainly sounds to be very promising, especially the month to month basis.

I'm very pleased with the monthly contract it means you only pay for the time that you are there.

Back home in Spain, we have shares in the bank and it allows us to have 50Mb fiber optic cable straight into the house with unlimited WI-Fi, landline with free calls anywhere in Spain, 1 cent per minute for calls to England, no connection charges and free UK TV-free to air, plus radio. A monthly contract, stop and start whenever you like all for 15 euros per month inc IVA, which is the Spanish equivalent to VAT. No setup fee and a free router.

Wi-Fi in Spain was very expensive until fiber optic came in. Now it's getting very competitive with other companies able to compete in the market place.

Hi Mosquito, the packages are: Basic site WiFi for emails etc etc as before.
But this season you can have with £100 installation fee,
£10 a month gets you 20m download and 20m upload.
£25 a month gets you 50m download and 20m upload.
You pay monthly by standing order and stop and star when you want, it is rural broadband and is sent via the air from a farm on Greendicks Lane to a mast at the back of the bowling green.

It is very good and reliable, I have had it for about 6 months or so.
