Cracking little cotswolds CL

Horseshoe Farm is a cracking little Cotswolds CL. We stayed on Badmington weekend (the CL is within 10 minutes drive to Badmington house) and it was one of the wettest weekends of the year so far. Still a good stay. However be warned. The entrance is very tight. Br very carefull swinging into the narrow entrance. Secondly, the whole site is based UP HILL. Only one pitch is approaching flat and when iot rans the whole site becomes very muddy indeed. It has a toilet and shower block with two cubicals and all the usual services. All are kept clean. On our weekend we had x8 vans and 5 tents...on a CC CL. Seriously, it didnt bother us, and it was Badmington weekend. The sight is pretty and there are good walks all around. Take your blocks! and enjoy...

excellent CL

Hoorah!!! at last, a CL where the grass was cut to a very tidy level!! A very well maintained CL with adequate toilets and showers. Very informal and friendly owner, Mrs Tily. Lovely views, and accessible easily to the Cotswold Way. One minor point, if approaching, with a 'van, from the Horton direction, ensure you swing well out when turning right to enter the (narrow) drive.
