Basic yet perfect !

We only stayed one night after meeting family at Basildon Park, which is just a few miles away but would have happily stayed for a week. Beautiful scenery, peaceful and plenty of entertainment from the red kites, pheasants and other wildlife. We were privileged to have the CL site all to ourselves but it is spacious enough for 5 vans without feeling crowded. The only downside is the very narrow long approach lane which would be very difficult for large motorhomes or caravans. We received a warm welcome from the charming gentleman who owns the site. Perfect if you don't mind using your own facilities and power.

Charming Location

This CL is precisely why you are a member of the CandMC. Exclusive access to some fabulous locations in the UK and Bennets Farm is a great example. The site is well maintained and the view is spectacular from any pitch. The single lane access may be a deterrent to someone towing and we recommend you approach the site from the A329 and not the B4009. Nearby, Goring upon Thames is worth a visit and there seems to be plenty of Bridleways and footpaths in the area to explore. A lovely CL and one we will certainly return to.

Idyllic site

Approach roads are narrow but we managed not to meet anyone either way! The owner/farmer is a really lovely guy ( I believe he is 93 years young!) The site is exactly what we wanted - an empty field. We cycled to The Bell at Aldworth - pretty steady easy cycle ride. We also walked to Streatley and had a drink at The Swan. The walk was approx 2 miles. Very nice walk with a couple of hills. From the site we watched red kites hoovering above and deer in the woods. A perfect spot for relaxing and fantastic for those with dogs

A great getaway

A very peaceful site with fantastic views. Lots of wildlife. Quiet lanes to cycle through. We cycled to Goring for a coffee by the river. Easy on the way there, a little harder on the way back! Also cycled to the Four Points, Aldworth and had a lovely lunch. Bins, water and waste disposal on site. Weather was perfect for us on our weekend visit. Watched the aeroplanes banking in the distance one evening (no noise) and no light pollution. Not far from Goring but felt like a million miles from the stresses of life. Just the way we like it. Very relaxing. Will definitely return.

Our First Motorhome Trip

Well we just bought our first motorhome and wanted to take it somewhere to learn about its features etc. This is a fantastic spot with wonderful views and tranquillity. Would definitely recommend it to anyone, and look forward to visiting again in the future :)
