Great CL, first rate

What a fantastic site, it’s the best CL site we have stayed on, lovely welcome on arrival, friendly owners, great location, beautifully maintained site and nice places to visit within a short drive. The hospitality was exceptional, after we had pitched up, we received a welcome cuppa and some homemade cake, our 2 small dogs also received their own welcome pack, then later on a traditional cream tea, the hospitality didn’t stop there throughout our stay. Having had a long journey we decided to order breakfast for our first morning “great and very reasonable price”, we also ordered fresh croissants for breakfast during the rest of our stay, it arrive at our caravan at the designated time, a small hut that sold homemade jam’s and chutney’s to order, very tasty. We will defiantly stay at this site in the future, the owners most defiantly went the extra mile which is why they have consistently won so many awards.

Easter Break

This is a return visit to Poole Farm as we stayed here Christmas 2017 which we received a great welcome then and I have to say we have received the same welcome some 12 months later. This is a very well thought out CL due to owners being caravan club members and laid out really well with electric and water to each pitch. The CL has a toilet and shower room for use called “The Hut” but you can be assured it is far from being a hut it is very well decorated and kept immaculate by the owners. On arrival we received a complimentary lovely cream tea with homemade scones from Louise and as we are here over Easter the owners young son delivered warm homemade Hot Cross buns on good Friday then to top it all and we were astonished when young Harvey came across Easter Sunday with 2 Easter eggs , Easter cake and a lovely array of flowers to wish us happy Easter. The family here put 150% effort into ensuring you enjoy your stay at Poole Farm and we would highly recommend staying here if you were a couple or family as plenty of room for children to play it really is a super site and kept immaculate. Thank you for your hospitality Louise , Greg and Harvey , not forgetting Rufus the spaniel.

A wonderful site

This was our first ever outing in our new motorhome. Greg and Louise were just wonderful, so welcoming, and greeted us with a welcome cup of tea. The site was easy to find and access. We could not have picked a better 'first time'. The facilities are superb, pitches are first class and the environment could not be improved. What a great location. Our thanks to Greg and family for such a lovely three days stay. We will return!

What a place!

What a wonderful place! I have stayed at some excellent CL's but Poole Farm takes the biscuit! I was so surprised by Greg's kind offer to make me a cup of tea when I arrived in the pouring rain I said no, thank you! I've never stayed any site, large or small where tea has been offered on arrival! He took time to show me the facilities, and brought me a welcome pack with a lovely hand written card from the family, and details of all the services they offer - newspapers, breakfasts, jam, preserves etc. The hut with the shower, toilet, information room and elsan closet was immaculate at all times, and the complimentary toiletries in there another bonus. As was the cream tea that Greg delivered the following afternoon! The gravel pitches are spacious, with plenty of grass round them, and having a water tap as well as electric to each pitch is great. Phone signal, tv reception, and free WiFi, Greg and Louise seem to have thought of everything. They even managed to arrange a few hours of dry weather for me each day so I could go for walks using the laminated maps so helpfully provided in the Hut! I really couldn't have asked for more. Very much looking forward to my next visit to Poole Farm. Thank you Greg and Louise!
