Parley Court Farm
We were concerned after reading the review from 4/2021, so I emailed Hugh, with specific questions. He was most helpful, so we decided to go ahead. We did also find out that another local person was about to go to this site, which they have used before, for a 10 day stay. If it were that bad they surely would not return?
We have marked stars down for arrival due to it being a bit confusing when you turn into Parley Green Lane, you feel like you are entering a private estate (which you are) but there is no signage for the caravan site. It would be good for a sign at the entrance to the estate and another to get you on the right road to the camp site.
We paid prior to arrival, so just let them know we had arrived via phone.
On arrival at the site, the area is lovely, tidy, small (1/2 acre) but plenty for 5 caravans, however large! Pitch where you are able, we can cope with not being advised where to pitch. Nicely mown, as mentioned before 3 pillars with electric/water our 25m electric cable was fine, we pitched about as far away from a pillar, due to others on site.
Pitching, yes, did have to pick up some poop, but for those dogs owners who would know, it WAS NOT DOG POO, but GOOSE poop.(but not too much to pick up) There are free range geese, but they never came into the field while we were there, the Guinea fowl, however did - they were so much fun to watch and only paid one visit.
Daily greyhound visits - the ONE greyhound visited once with owner, was not an issue to those of us who were there.
Aeroplanes, not an issue for us and was great to watch (and feel) when the larger aircrafts went to take off (3 over the whole weekend)
The Elsan, considering what elsans are there for, this elsan point was clean and tidy and no worse than others we have experienced and actually better than some others!
The estate, it has golf, an equestrian centre and a cafe you can make use of. We took several walks with the dogs around the site, down to the river. During which, to our surprise, we not only passed horses, but also an emu! A bit random, only on leaving did we also find the alpacas! Ducks, geese and swans on the small lake, all of which our grandchildren loved watching.
Overall an enjoyable weekend and a site we will return to.
