Cracking Value CL

Stayed two nights in motorhome, paddock is nice, well cut but slightly sloping so levelling blocks a good idea. Scenery is splendid and site is close to many places of interest. Generally peaceful and quiet only broken by the occasional cow or tractor. Some faint road noise during the day and a railway line is 1/4 mile away so occasional sound of passing trains but nothing to spoil the general tranquility of this rural venue. For a charge of £10 you get a nicely spaced pitch with EHU, water tap, grey water disposal point that you can drive your motorhome up to and Elsan emptying point. These facilities are without frills but very functional and for £10 per night its cracking value. Will definitely stay again when in the area.

Nice small well kept CL

Well situated just outside Sherbourne and far enough away from the main road in noise terms although the railway was audible but not a problem. A very slightly sloping site with good well kept grass the water and chemical disposal points within a small hedged block just near the access gate. Plenty of space with the electric points well positioned around the completely hedged site. Very helpful and obliging owners. Excellent value at £10.

Proper little CL

Some slightly sloping pitches. Good recycling facilities. This is a busy working farm so there is farm noise and some white noise from the main road. Neither bothered us. CDP doesn’t leave much to the imagination. Very handy for Sherborne. TV reception OK, 3G OK on Three but nothing on O2. We were alone for most of our stay which was surprising considering it was school holidays. Well priced at £10. Your mission, should you care to accept it, is to find the fresh water tap! Would stay again.

real farm site

This is a real farm site on a serious dairy farm. The farm has a good road off the main road and then a hard track through yard to the site field. The site field is close to the milking parlor and the main buildings of the farm, cows pass the field gate on their way to milking every morning. Possible down side of this site is noise from the main road where it seemed motorbikes held time trials and the train that also passes a field away. The slightly sloping field has a good track and was firm underfoot. The electric points were spaced around the field and the waste disposal near the center. In the next field to the site two bulls were staking there claim on the females. I think the site is very much a sideline in this busy dairy farm.

A Well looked after CL.

A friendly welcome from Mrs Kellaway on arrival. Very nicely situated site, with well mown grass. Slightly sloping and leveling blocks may be needed on some pitches. Used this site as a two night stopover En-Route to Cornwall from North Norfolk. Would certainly use this site again.
