Why stay here ...

John Torrid Farm is a small working farm situated in the Village of Shurlock Row. The farm is surrounded by ancient woodland which keeps it peaceful and pleasant.

The CL has been finished to very high standards with a hardstanding gravel driveway and pitches which also have the option of grass, each pitch has its own individual electricity and water supply making "hooking up" as easy as possible, the pitches are set in a 1.5 acre maintained paddock which is perfect for BBQ's and fun.

The location is one of the most attractive points as the neighbouring towns include Windsor, Maidenhead, Ascot, Reading, Bracknell, Twyford and Wokingham. Just short drives out and you could be enjoying sights such as Windsor Castle, Windsor Great Park, Legoland, Ascot Racecourse or maybe even some retail therapy at the Oracle Reading or the newly finished Lexicon in Bracknell. If sports are of interest the farm is within walking distance to as many as 4 fishing lakes and is also on a cycling route, if you're feeling a bit more energetic. The CL is also a good base if you don't mind hopping on the train, fast trains from Twyford, Bracknell or Reading direct into London in as little as half an hour and you could be enjoying what the capital has to offer from Buckingham Palace, The Royal Albert Hall, Hampton Court Palace, Wembley Stadium and much, much more. London is one of the greatest capitals in the world offering something for everyone and staying with us here at John Torrid Farm - it's all just minutes away.

If you're a bit of a foody then local restaurants including a handful of country style pubs including The Shurlock Inn, The Beehive, The Bell, The Belgian Arms and more. If you're looking for more chain style restaurants the Lexicon Bracknell and Oracle Reading offer lots of choice.

The Farm is family friendly and we don't mind dogs as long as they're kept on leads. If your feeling "hands on" help is always welcome from feeding our alpacas, walking our donkey, cuddling our pygmy goats or maybe even collecting a few eggs from our chickens. Advance booking is required. We hope you enjoy your stay and look forward to seeing you soon.

Please note: All pitches are hard standing and awnings cannot be pinned down and must be weighted.

Well presented and welcoming CL

This is an lovely CL, given the current circumstances (still in the final throws of lockdown) we felt that this site was excellent and handled the situation with common sense and professionalism. The communications prior to arrival were excellent and the site was easily found etc. The site has individual serviced pitched with water and metered electric (£1 and £2 coins) (it cost us £1 for our stay) My daughter was very taken with the cats, chickens, alpaca’s and goats and the puppy ‘sky’ was the absolute icing on the cake! The site is relatively isolated but that can easily be seen by looking at the map but has a large green area for kicking a ball around. The site was ideal for us and was in close proximity of Windsor, which was our next stop. The security gates make this a nice safe haven. The family that run the farm seemed very nice and made it a friendly and relaxed stay. Highly recommended.

First CL site

This was our first CL site in our new motorhome. We received prompt replies from Ben to our emails and found the site easily.Access is through a key code gate which makes it feel very secure. The site is immaculate with gravel or grass to park on, the pitch size was good making access easy. Each pitch has its own electric and water point which was really useful.You pay for the electric , it was approximately £1.50 a day. There are goats, Alpacas and a donkey which my grandaughter enjoyed and cats which our dog enjoyed! The location was ideal for Windsor and Legoland, only 15 mins away. There are plenty of pubs in the local area and we found some footpaths close by to walk the dog. Would definitely return

What a find.

Been caravaning for five years and have stayed in many places and none match the beauty of this place. The grounds are immaculate, the fresh eggs available on site are superb but the real asset is the family that run it. They are really lovely people and made us feel so welcome. This is only 30 minutes from our home and it will definitely be a regular stay from now on for us.

Run by the nicest family I have ever met.

The site has been planned, build and finished extremely well. Each pitch has its own water and electric supply. The grounds are lovely to look at and very well kept. Plenty of space for kids and BBQs. The animals are great too. My daughter loved going out in the morning to pat the goats and alpacas. The best thing about this place is the family who run it. genuinely one of the nicest families I have ever met. Nothing was a problem for them. We were there over the Easter period, and the lady bought my kids an Easter egg!! I was so touched by their generosity, Just one of the many lovely things that they did for us. A short walk away is a little woodland, which was full of bluebells. This farm is secluded and peaceful. I can´t recommend this place enough.

A new family favourite

Having only been caravanning for a couple of years, John Torrid Farm was only the second CL we've stayed at, and more importantly, the first CL with the kids. We were taking our daughters, aged 5 and 8 to Legoland and wanted a site nearby to reduce travel time to and from the theme park. Location wise, John Torrid Farm was perfect, 12 minutes away from Legoland and it had some lovely pubs in close proximity for a well deserved beer after a long day 'legoing'! The whole experience through Ben and family was first class, from quickly responding to email enquiries, to receiving a warm welcome on arrival and the eggs on sale - wow! The site itself was spotless with great sized pitches and a secure, gated entrance. The girls loved the site too as it had a huge area for them to play freely (and safely - parents view) and there were even a few animals for them to enjoy. We would highly recommend John Torrid Farm and will be returning whenever visiting the area in future.
