Lovely site, great stay

We stayed on this site for 3 nights. It is well looked after and our reception by the owner was excellent. His can-do attitude was reassuring and when we wanted help he was very happy to provide it. The site itself is secluded and surrounded by trees to the south and west, with open field views to the east. To the north there are more fields with the view broken by trees. It is pretty level. The grass pitches and surrounds are well maintained, with water at one end and chemical disposal at the other (2-300 metres between them). Electric hookups are well spaced. Road access to the site is good but care should be taken to follow the directions given in the handbook, as approaching from the wrong direction could be a problem with a tight turn and gradient up a single track driveway to negotiate. Once at the top of the drive the site opens up and is very easy to access. Being close to Bristol airport, one does notice some aircraft noise but we did not find it obtrusive. The site was a working farm but has now been turned over to nature and it is a delight. There are local walks and access to historic Bristol and local countryside/coast is easy. We enjoyed our time and have noted that we should use this site again. Enjoy.

Attractive and well placed

We stayed here for 6 nights in late May. The site entrance is very well marked but the only daunting thing on entry / leaving was the steep driveway that scuffed our double axle unit underneath - so go slow!! The site was quiet apart from the one odd easy jet flight but we didn't find the noise any bother. Generally the site was clean and tidy and surrounded by meadows and woods - great for the dogs!! Water / waste etc nicely laid out. Fantastically placed for local attractions and 15mins away from Bristol. The site was very free draining in heavy rain. No real complaints here at all and The couple that own the site are really nice, relaxed,helpful sort of people. If this site had individual water points to each pitch this would make the site into something special.

Good cl

We stayed here from 26/05/17-02/06/17. Well marked from roadside and easy access. Well off the road and no traffic noise although some noise from aircraft taking off and landing but not too intrusive. Lovely walks from field straight into the woods. When travelling around without van in tow we used the A370 as traffic was lighter this way than the A38. SS Great Britain well worth a visit in Bristol. Excellent for adults and children. We also enjoyed a trip to Glastonbury and a climb to the Tor. We were visited by a deer one morning and saw several Greater Spotted Woodpecker. Not a criticism, but suggestion that the bins are individually marked for recycling. Slight confusion over what went where etc. We enjoyed our stay and would have no hesitation in returning.

Near the airport, but.....

A great little site with trees all around. We didn't find the take-offs and landings intrusive, and nor did the local bird life. Great dog-walking in the forestry. Just don't try turning down the combe on leaving! It's too tight!

A CL WITH A DIFFERENCE

Only about 1/2 a mile from the end of the runway at Bristol International Airport this CL boasts wonderful views of arriving and departing Aircraft, a must for plane or photography enthusiasts. Yes there is some noise but you quickly get used to it to the point of not noticing it after a time. Marin the owner is very welcoming and is full of information concerning the locall area and beyond. The site itself is on high ground and surrounded by trees so well protected from strong winds. Whilst staying on the site we had quite an amount of rain but the ground drained very well and always remained very firm. Would I go back again, most certainly, and talking to people from the other 4 units on site they all said that they have been returning back year after year,what other proof du you need that this Cl is one not to be missed.
