Convenient but grubby and poor value.

Stone Crouch Cottage
Easy location from main road. Good location for cycling and places to visit. Poor access road, congested shared site with abandoned cars, seasonal workers? and fishing traffic, lumpy pitches. Nice showers and toilets. Poor and access to water, waste, chem. Poor value at £16.Drive on

Few days cycling

Stone Crouch Cottage
7m motorhome and no issues with entrance. Nice site with great access to A21 but very quiet and peaceful. Shower and toilet spotless at all times, always hot water. Fishing lakes on site. Easy walk to Bewl water, nice to cycle round. Friendly welcome.

Tired and dirty

Stone Crouch Cottage
The driveway to this site was difficult to negotiate from the road and was full of holes which made the caravan bump all over the place. We stayed 2 nights and didn't see the owner once . We knocked on the door of the main house to pay our fee although this was begrudgingly as the standard of this site was poor. The toilet/shower room had not been cleaned in a long time and wasn't touched whilst we were there. It was covered in cobwebs and dirt. There was no toilet roll or hand soap. As this was a shared facility it was obvious that the fishermen were using the toilet and not washing their hands afterwards. The chemical waste disposal was in accessible. On the plus side, the site was peaceful except for the fishermen trotting back and forth and the grass kept short. Definitely won't be returning to his tired looking site.

Tight Fit

Stone Crouch Cottage
The site is pleasant enough, although if there is a lot of rain it can be difficult to get off. The access to the site from Rosemary Lane is tight, access is guarded by two enormous magnificent oak trees and if you have an 8 metre caravan it is extremely tight, great care should be taken going into and leaving the site.

Gone downhill

Stone Crouch Cottage

Last year this was a lovely site however the couple that were here last year looking after the place have left for personal reasons and you notice the change right away. First thing was the large potholes in the drive so much so that it flung open draws in the caravan as we entered. Also no welcome whatsoever. So we parked up and got settled. The overall look of the place is one of neglect. Long grass, dead flowers, dirty toilets. We walked around the lakes and noticed there were hardly any fisherman which was strange. Also the lakes were not tidy but tissue and rubbish was laying about. The next day we showered but had to clean the floors first also the bins in the toilets were full. Later we found human poo on the toilet floor which again we had to clean up as no one had been near the toilets to clean them. Hearing this the owner came to see what was going on. She thought perhaps a fox had done it and she said the grass wasn't cut because the mower didn't work and they were cutting back on expenses. We did notice her own lawn had been cut. By Wednesday I was fed up with the bins in the toilet over flowing so emptied them myself, the rubbish was clearly from the fisherman because it contained empty meat cans and drinks boxes and cigarette ash, we found out the day fisherman are no longer able to use the bins on site so that's why the toilet bins were full ? The owner came down on Thurs to clean the toilets which she did with one cloth and a spray, she cleaned the toilets and the sink with the same cloth. The floor and showers were not touched. Talking to the other people staying there they all said they wouldn't come back. It's such a shame because its a lovely site that's not being cared for. We left a day early because we had had enough. Sorry to say we wont be back either.
