A Real Dump - needs loads of TLC

Willow Farm
Puzzled about CoVid Compliance - when phoning to book it was a clear condition that we had the app to scan QR code; on arrival, owner Tim leaned close to my wife’s window (no distancing) with a warm greeting with full explanation of his vineyard (didn’t see it), spirits distillery and sausage & faggots produce. No mention of CoVid at all. Really should have said “stand further away”. Empty site and offered two pitches with views - overgrown but with weedy, level hardstanding and 16amp hookup. Any view obscured by very overgrown hedge. Real pity that the whole place is a dump, as described by the other 1-star review. Bought sausages at £5 a pack although we have decided to throw them away after thinking about their hygiene standards - no evidence of separate food and hand washing facilities; a very shambolic kitchen with their exited dog scurrying around. Hygiene zip. They are a welcoming couple but need to put some effort into tidying the place up. One wonders if the CMC ever revisits places after negative reviews to verify them and review it inclusion as a CL site.

Nice site in the country side

Willow Farm

Very friendly welcome, level pitches with a bonus of having a vineyard. You can sample gin,  buy wine, cider and sausages, all made at the farm.

Great little CL

Willow Farm
When I booked this site there were no reviews - it was a recommendation from someone who had stayed there. I was a little therefore a little nervous when I saw the review that appeared just before I was due to stay! However I need not have feared. If you are expecting mown lawns and full CAMC facilities then this is not the place for you. If you want a proper CL, camping in a wild flower meadow, peace and quite with bee hives and sheep next door then it is. There are also free range pigs (and fantastic sausages to buy) and horses. Access to the site was easy, although there is one turn that could be a bit tight if you have a really, really long motorhome. The site and facilities are tidy and clean, no problem with recycling which is all clearly labelled (along with a what goes where leaflet that was sent to me at time of booking) and I saw no skip of manure...a friendly site where my neighbouring motorhomer for the stay was a regular visitor and pointed me in the direction of the cider and wine they also make and sell on the farm. Good bus route into Bath during the week although it seems more patchy at weekends. Would definitely stay again.

Worst CL we have ever stayed on and we have stayed on CL's for years.

Willow Farm
On arrival we were greeted by the owner who seemed quite a nice fellow and told where we could pitch our motorhome after we had paid him, he pointed at a dirty hosepipe on the ground and stated that is your drinking water, we declined the kind offer of his filthy hosepipe and used our own food grade hosepipe to fill up our water tank, the entrance to the site was overgrown and tress scraped along the side of our motorhome as we entered the CL, the pitches were all overgrown, the site was full of old building rubbish and scrap metal, there were no rubbish bins, the chemical toilet disposal point looked like it had never been cleaned and you had to negotiate around yet more building rubbish to access it, the owners dog was running freely so we had to leave our little dog inside the motorhome the entire time, behind the pitches was a skip full of manure (I expect country smells when staying on a farm but do not expect to be pitched adjacent to approx 10 tonnes of steaming manure). This could be a nice CL but I think the owner has taken his eye off the ball and let it go.
