Great weeks holiday April 2019 good rest and relaxing site.

We were met on arrival and directed to the CL site. 2 units on site, but there was plenty of room to site exactly wherever you desired. Waste disposal could do with some upgrading as rather basic but adequate. Gentle walks along the banks of the river also shopping was close by. All the staff we met were pleasant and willing to help wherever they could. Will return to this CL if we are anywhere nearby.. Good experience all round.

The site is local to Newbury and within easy reach of A 339 & M4. May not be to everybodys liking but is better than many others in the area. It has on site shower/wc, fishing & walking, however shopping and parking close to shops is limited and requires a 5 minute drive to nearest shopping precinct.

NOT FOR ME

Appears to be a strange set up. Garden Centre run down. Long grass. Appears to be quite a few long term residents in very old units who tend to walk their dogs all round the site at unusual hours. Very expensive for what you get!! Traffic noise a nuisance. Wont be staying again.

Pleasant

We stayed here for 2 nights to attend the Newbury Motorhome Show which was 9 miles approx in distance. We had seen the reviews but still booked as it was easy access from show and provided shower /toilet facilities and electric. Our impression of the site is better than previous reviews. There are 2 toilets and 1 shower. Both are clean with hand washing facilities provided and a short stroll away from the pitches. There is also a heater for the shower block. The grass had been mowed but could have been shorter. The goats are located in a penned area and occasionally roam around a long grassy area but are quite nervous and did not venture near the units. It was very quiet & peaceful - some road noise but nothing too disturbing. We met one of the owners - a lady who was very polite and amenable who explained that they took over the nursery 2 years ago and are gradually implementing changes. There are many walks in the local area and buses into Newbury which is a historic market town and worth visiting. There are also pubs nearby. We have stayed on far worse sites and feel that this was overall quite pleasant and relaxing.
