Donald & Sheila touring in A Class motorhome Great Site Smith House Farm

Our Motor Home is a 40 foot long American A Class and needs a hard standing site with excellent access with no low bridges and trees, Smith House Farm CL site is excellent for our type of vehicle. There a direct access into the farm off the A66 (Sandy Leas Lane) the farmer opens the gates when they know your booked and coming. We love this farm site as it’s real country with wonderful views over the fields and watching the cows & cafts from our front window. The electric hook up is through a £1 coin meter and we have a fresh water tap and sewer point nearby. The farm is kept clean and tidy and the grass camping area is kept cut and very tidy. This is our secon year here and we stay for 4 weeks at a time, there is plenty to do nearby and the Sutton Arms provides wonderful meals in the village of Elton, this is a great place to stay. We stayed in June £8 a night great value our electric worked out at £3 a night. We recommend this wonderful site.

Convenient for Stockton

With Whitewater being closed for refurb we have been struggling for other options when visiting family. This CL does admirably. This was a very pleasant place to be in the glorious weather. Easy to find from the A66, turn right just after the church in Elton. We pitched on dry, sloping grass and needed levelling blocks and extra bricks at the front. Water and hookup within easy reach, we put £1 in the meter and this lasted all weekend. Simple, basic and did us proud.

A pleaseant CL

This is a very pleasant but basic CL, just off the A66 and about ten minutes from Stockton. Access is good and it is easy to find. You can choose where and how you pitch, the only limitation might be the length of your hook up cable! The ground was good when I visited, but this was during a lengthy dry period. You may well need leveling blocks. The CL is £7 per night, not £6 as quoted. Please note that electricity is extra; the hook up points are metered. If you're lucky there will be some left on the meter and you will get a night or two paid for by the previous occupant! There meters take £1 coins. I received a warm and friendly welcome and was shown where the taps, elsan point etc are. There is a toilet but it was pretty dirty, I decided to use my own facilities in the 'van. Road noise may be an issue for some, the A66 runs very close by. It's a working farm so expect the associated smells and sounds. Nearby Coatham Woods are lovely for dog walking. There is a pub about ten minutes' walk from the site, just turn right at the end of the farm road. I didn't go to the pub but the car park was very busy on Sunday when we walked past.
