    Great campground

    by

    We spent three days in Bath looking at the city itself and several attractions in the region. There is a very good restaurant on site and although I don't drink, there were several campers there enjoying the pub. the shower and bathroom facilities were spotless. The folks running the campground couldn't do enough for us to make us welcome. Oh, there is also a small market they run at the top of the little hill.

    Unique Quality: For backpackers it is probably not a good idea. The lane that leads to the campground is about 1 1/2 miles long on a dirt and gravel track. No bus goes to the campground and the bus stop is up at the top of another hill after you reach the pavement. It's about a 15 minute bus ride back into town. We rode the bus and walked because I had no idea of where anything might be in town including finding a place to park. There are ducks, rabbits, and squirrels around and they are quite tame. wonderful for kids.

    Peaceful & expensive... with a pub!

    by

    We came to Newton Mill Campground toward the end of the trip and stayed there because it was the least expensive in the area, although it was the most expensive we stayed at in Wales, Scotland, or England. Now, let me voice a few complaints:

    1) At Newton Mill you need bricks to keep grills off the ground... fine. One afternoon I lacked 25 of the 50p required for a 'brick deposit' and asked the owner if I could catch up with him. He was adamant that he needed the other 25p. They wouldn't use my credit card as a deposit instead. I asked if I should try using one brick or even find a rock off the ground instead and he became somewhat flustered. Come on. Are we really going to pop heavy bricks into our packs to hike away with them? Oh, in his defense, he eventually relented and graciously let us have the other brick - after making an embarassing fuss of it in front of other customers and staff.

    2) Yes, Newton Mill is actually about 45 minutes hike from Bath... even though the website is campinginbath.com. This didn't bother us much since it's a pleasant walk, but it is worth noting. It's that or pay to take the bus from the top of the hill every day. The hike is especially tough if you plan on stealing any bricks.

    3) Rules are arbitrary. For instance, when I asked the owner what the minimum deposit was for credit card purchases in the store it was 'more than what you have there'. We asked again what it was so we could buy more and he still wouldn't answer, although he encouraged us to buy more. We did so, increasing our spending to about 6 pounds, and he STILL charged us a fee for spending too little. Maybe we should have bought a brick, too.

    4) Most of the staff was stiff and unfriendly. Of the 5 people we encountered daily over the course of a 2-week stay only one woman was cheery and pleasant. Despite our most jocular efforts most of them acted a bit like bricks.

    Unique Quality: The campsite itself was peaceful, the two floor-heated shower blocks were immaculately kept and meter-free, and the ground was well maintained. There is an excellent store, laundromat, and a relatively expensive pub on the premise. There is even a restaurant, although it's prices are higher than the excellent pub meals to be found in town. It was the cleanest and could have been the best campsite we stayed at, but a few rotten apples can spoil a whole bunch.

    Directions: Take the bus to Newton Mill and ask the driver for the campground stop - chances are 50/50 that he'll know what you're talking about. Good luck.

    Excellent Camping

    by

    We stopped for one night here on our way to Cornwall. The campsite has a variety of pitches from just a tent to a fully serviced pitch for a caravan. There is a shop and a pub on site. We found the staff very friendly, the site was quiet and picturesque. The toilets and showers were exceptionally clean. Overall an excellent place to say.

    Unique Quality: Won the best loo award for 2005!

    Directions: Just off the A4 where it meets the A36.
