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.

Best CL we have been too.

John Torrid Farm
An excellent and very well presented CL on a working farm. It was great to see there 3 day old alpaca and for Ben to take time and explain the working of a busy chicken farm. Our daughter got to feed Elmo the pony with a carrot under the watchful eye of Ben. Legoland is only 15 minutes away and a direct route from JTF. Recommend Windsor for a Thames boat trip. You won’t be disappointed with this site at all.

What a fabulous site

John Torrid Farm
Used for a two night stop over. Wonderful family owned site, immaculately kept especially as a working chicken farm. Wonderful eggs, still warm when we bought them! Great welcome from the very hard working Ben. Good level gravel pitches with own water tap, electricity meter (if you’re lucky there will still be credit & good to leave some in credit too, pay it forward!). Also your own bin. Everything was extremely clean, tidy & well kept. Considering how close you are to the motorway we never heard a thing. Ben (the Son), was wonderful to talk to, he took time out of his busy day to Answer our questions about the chickens & anything else we were interested in. Lovely young man. Great pub, The Shurlock Inn about 1 & 3/4 mile up the lane. Excellent pub with great staff. Highly recommend this site.

Well presented and welcoming CL

John Torrid Farm
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

John Torrid Farm
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.

John Torrid Farm
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.
