This has long been a bone of contention for us. Although the CCC handbook states that if a site is not full, the stay may be extended up to 5.00 pm, with discretionary payment of an additional fee, in 16 years of membership, we have NEVER been given permission to stay beyond three o'clock, even when a site is half empty, and we have offered to make any necessary additional payment. This 3.00 pm leaving time was ranted on one solitary occasion, when the assistant warden was in charge, and the manager (or 'Old Dragon', as we came to know her), was absent. Moreover, we have been regularly told that sites are 'very busy', then arrived to find less than half the pitches occupied, or equally, arrived to find 'advance booking only' signs erected at the gate, when there were in facts loads of empty pitches (as at these times we have had reservations, we have been able to note how few of the vacant spaces were actually occupied in the space of a weekend. Club members of the UK unite, you have nothing to lose but bad-tempered and unhelpful site wardens!
