In need of TLC

Yew Tree Farm
We used the site as a stopover on a longer holiday, very glad it was no longer. The CL sig was almosr totally obscured by a 'Support the NHS sticker' - not a very safe idea! The access drive is narrow betweenan old greenhouse and the first pitch and bends sharply. Despite being instructed in our email to pitch on a particular plot this was occupied when we arrived by what looked like a caravan in the process of restoration. Having sought out the owner we were directed to a narrow unnumbered pitch alongside the access road. Despite only having a fairly small 'van we would have struggled to site it without a motor-mover and even then we had to trim over-hanging branches so as not to damage the roof. We then had to park in a small gap on the other side of the road so narrow we could open only one door of the car. The pitch was surrounded by overgrown grass and nettles and had no hook-up. We had to borrow an extension hook-up to join to ours to access a socket across the access road so every vehicle passing us drove over our cable. We never found the toilet or shower but judging by the rubbish,broken down trailer and generally run down state of the site we wouldn't have used it! There is a great view of what appear to be lorry containers used as changing rooms on the adjacent sports field. It's a shame as this site could be very nice and a great asset with the new RHS Garden openimng only a few miles away and its easy access to the M6/M62 but it is woefully in need of some attention and updating. I'm surprised that the Club considers the elctrical arrangements to be acceptable.

Small quiet site close to M6 / M62

Yew Tree Farm
Site close to M6 / M62 Motorway network. Due to just coming out of Lockdown 3, all comms had been done by Email. Fine. 5 pitches, 3 with decent size for 7.3m units. Two pitches have shared power on pitch. Other pitches require long leads that are provided and found in the tack shed (Walk towards house, as passing stables, look left, door to left). Power connections and water on end of stables. Chemical disposal and waste bin at end of drive. Location next to fields with trees sheltering pitches. Slightly overgrown and unkempt in places but that adds to the adventure.. Don't feed the horses in the field, "special diet" we were told. Despite road nearby, relatively quiet but it was a weekend. Industrial estate opposite. Some have mentioned finding entrance difficult, it is directly opposite industrial estate entrance.

Fair for the price.

We stopped overnight when travelling North. We couldn't find the site to start with but realised the directions are for the M62 and not the M6! Could do with a bigger site notice as we drove past it twice! Upon arrival we were met by the owner who was perfectly nice and pleasant and walked up to the site with me to show us our pitch. It was quite small and overhung but as they had had torrential rain it had no standing water like the other pitches. A motor mover is a must to get on and off the pitch. The weather being atrocious we had rain dripping on the roof of the van all night. The toilets and shower were clean, adequate and a bit dated but as you only pay £14 one can't really complain. All in all a good site for stopover but as we didn't research the area we don't know what attractions are nearby. We think it would be quite pleasant in good weather. We would certainly stay again if we were in the area.

Disappointing

Yew Tree Farm
Overall about the worst site we have ever stayed on. It felt like camping in a lay-by. The owners were friendly, but the site needs attention. The road access to the site was good, but the farm lane was exceedingly narrow with a greenhouse on one side and a motorhome on the first pitch, whose front end had to be negotiated. Positioning of the caravan on the pitch and subsequent towing off would have been impossible without a motor- mover even for a single-axle 'van. We were warned by the owner to keep the unit within the gravel area to avoid any ambiguity of fault should someone hit us when trying to manoever. The pitch was massively overgrown, dark and with no views- only that of the road and caravan opposite. Just walking from 'van to car involved walking into the hedge. The toilet block , though clean, was mixed sex and very tired, made up of recycled kitchen units. The owner warned us about the shower, but it took far too long to run warm. We gave up trying to use it. At one point in our 3 night stay, there were 8 units on this CL. It was also a very crowded site. I am not surprised that the owner has not supplied a photo. How this site was ever allowed it's Club certification, I cannot see! My advice is to avoid!

Rare site in the area

Yew Tree Farm
The reviews are correct. The site needs a lot of TLC. The trees overhang and all visitors agreed with this.It was difficult to get in and out without catching the van. The pitches are small except for the one were on, as we arrived first. The site was full so was cramped. No chance for a twin axle long van. Cables had to pass through all the pitches.The loo block is fair for the price.The house area we had to pass through to see the owners was a shambles of rubbish. What a pity, could be a gem in an area where CL's are desperately needed.
