|i was also there in the late 50s on a family holiday and also staying in a railway carriage!i was about 8 at the time. my father and his friends all did 'square dancing' as a pastime and we had a hoedown down there during a weeks holiday. as i recall the holiday was cut short as there was a forest fire which could be seen from the camp. my sister and i were bloody scared of it....i remember that!!|

|Well, I have emailed Robert on this. I am the daughter of the owners of the camp. Yes, remember the fire. My brother helped fight it and my mother ferried refreshments to the firefighters. I now live in a new house on the old site but one old chalet and a very ramshackle pool still exixts in the woods|
In the mid 50's as a child I used to help serve and clean out those railway carriages. What fun!
