Lovely site, very friendly and helpful owner.

This site is in a lovely, scenic location with access to great walks which our dog (and us) much appreciated. We are a family of four, including two young boys and we were all made to feel very welcome from the moment we arrived. We unfortunately had some problems with the exterior lights on our caravan as we went to hitch up on the final day of our break. The owner was understanding and allowed us to leave the caravan on site for another day whilst we sorted out the problem. We are very appreciative of the owner, who made a difficult situation easier to deal with. Thank you. We look forward to returning next summer.

Good CL with a loverly view

Very nice CL with a good view. We stayed hear so we could visit Alton Waters which was a short ride away. The site was a flat field we did not use the toilets as we had our own facilities. The owner was very welcoming from the point of booking and came to the site shortly after we arrived to ensure that every thing was ok.We had two dogs and there are good walks from the site.I will visit again.

Simply a superb CL site

What a wonderful site this is. Beautifully kept. Lots of space for each caravan. Lovely views over the River Stour. All the amenities you expect for a Cl site with the added bonus of spotlessly clean toilets available. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We had a wonderful relaxing long weekend here and are already thinking about returning in a couple of weeks. There is also a lovely little pub literally 2 minutes walk away with great food and real ale. All in all what more could you ask for. I cannot praise the site enough.

Return visitor love this site

Never get round to writing reviews but the sun is shining and so peaceful. We have stayed here a few times now and I love this site. It’s not that far from where we live but it’s so peaceful and well kept. The site is spotless grass well kept and level. Water and grey waste attaches to site. EHU points well spaces out so plenty of room for everyone. There is a separate toilet block that again is spotless clean. There is a track from the site through the fields and then to a bridal way taking you down to the river bank. Someone munition a horn from the railway line well yes have heard this a couple of times but so much in the background hardly noticeable. Access to the site is very easy so even a large twin axel will have no issues. There is a great little butchers nearby but you have to follow the signs really good as our first visit we thought it must be wrong as it takes you into a residential area but stick with it, it’s there and you will be pleased you found it. There is a pub almost next door dog friendly great food and nice staff they also do take out pizza and they are to die for (I do love a pizza) The owner is helpful she comes along a couple of times a day to make sure all is good and have a little chat. Goes without saying we will be back again in a couple of months.

Lovely site - spoilt by disrespectful family

We booked this site a couple of weeks ago and had a lovely break but it was spoilt by a young family with six children. From the moment they arrived, everything changed. The kids ran riot, kicking footballs, climbing trees and creating havoc. Their dogs were let loose and came into our tent, as well as poo-ing nearby - which was not cleared up. When the owners of a neighbouring van asked the children not to 'play' nearby (as we had) they told their father who then 'fronted' them in an aggressive way. We had never seen anything like it and the poor man said that in 27 years of using CAMC sites, neither had he. The owners of the site were left with a difficult choice as we were all going to leave. Thankfully, she asked the uncivil family to go and although they protested, they did, but not before making as much noise as possible, revving engines and calling out names. The owner of this site should be commended as she handled a very difficult situation extremely well. The CAMC should take note and ban families that act like this - it's one reason we joined as we got fed up with this sort of behaviour at other sites.
