Still “Simply the best”

Having not stayed here for a few years we chose the Easter Weekend to make our return. Did the rain deter us? No way, in fact we were treated to being the only “mad ones” on the site as everyone had probably taken note of the weather forecast and cancelled! Despite the rain and very muddy walks we had the most amazing time. This site simply is the best, come rain or shine the beautiful views, the peacefulness and the incredible surroundings not to mention the added pleasure of powerful racehorses trotting past to go up the gallops make it very special indeed. The owners went out their way to ensure we were OK and helped tow us out the field on leaving, hardly a surprise after 24 hours of torrential rain! I Read our first review for this site back In 2013 and I stand by every word. Can’t wait to return and hopefully next time the sun will be shining.

always coming back to J & J's CL

We have been to Lorne HIll Farm every August since 2014 and we just made reservations for next month again. The area is really beautiful and the CL ist nice, quiet and clean. Our Labrador enjoys playing with the Farm-dogs and we always enjoy meeting J & J again. There are plenty of footpaths to explore and places of interest are easy to reach. There is a pub in East Garston and in the next villages, too. We always love to hear the horses trotting by in the morning, any day of the week. it is interesting to watch the training and talk to the riders, too. The hills around the farm show gazing cattle, sheep and alpakas, the geese and the chicken are close ... it is a wonderful working Farm and we like to watch Jonathan Rabbitts and his son working wiht huge combine harvesters on the fields. There is a workshop were Joanne Rabbitts and other Ladies work on their Quilts, patchwork and all kinds of handcraft, which is very interesting. We always feel very comfortable on Lorne Hill Farm and we are looking forward to come back.

A Little Gem

We have stayed here before and apart from it being a very wet easter we liked the site then. This visit reminded us how peaceful and quiet it was. The owner has made it bigger and some pitches are sheltered by mature trees. Footpaths are in abundance and the site is located in the Wessex aonb. The village of East Garston has many Chocolate box cottages and a crystal clear stream which my labrador thought great. We really enjoyed our 4 nights here.

Tranquil location

Strangely there was no welcome.  We arrived Friday lunch time and there was no one home. The site is compact, so there were no issues with finding the water, waste etc...we later discovered the owners were on holiday and paid a family friend late Saturday!! The plots are nicely separated by trees/hedges, so there was plenty of privacy for us and two other vans.  Would have been nice if the grass had been cut, as this was understandably wet each morning. The sire is ideally located for many walks on or around the Ridge Way.  We only heard the Racehorses go past once..but it was the weekend.  For £10.00, it was good value
