First time at this site and it was amazing. Warm and friendly welcome. Had a lovely little pitch which was perfect for me and my partner. The facilities, equipment and local information was wonderful. Great fun had by everyone we met.

Spent a lovely night at Little Ropers. We were met by Tom who was super helpful. He showed us to our pitch in the woods which was stunning. The site facilities are basic but clean. Each pitch came with a fire pit that we made full use of.
