One visitor said: “The pods litter bins are overflowing and black bin bags are piled up, but the caravans look well maintained and some even look expensive, one said VIP on the back.

“A number of small dogs were tied to vans with carpets or mats hanging over seating areas and traveler children playing in car park.

“I did witness a couple of teenage kids going out their van into the pods, presumably to use the facilities.
