I very seldom review sites, but this one is one off the best and also most basic CLs sites we have been on. The site its self is just a very large field with no EHU and yes the grass dose need grazing in places. The water and chemical disposal are across the road at the farm, there's not a lot of traffic. If you park at the top end near the gate its not far, I have had to walk a lot further on club sites. Eggs are for sale at the gate £1.50 for a dozen. There is some great walking from site with the Offa's Dyke trail passing the site entrance and its a must do is the walk up onto Hergest Ridge. There is a pub across the road which was open Lunch times and from five in the evenings, also all day at the weekends. We had a meal which was very tasty but from a limited menu. I would have given this site a rating of six except for the price. at £10.00 I think that's a bit steep with no electric, but maybe the location is worth the extra.
Tranquil and beautiful quiet site, no facilities which is just what we wanted with lovely green surroundings. The owner Kim was so accommodating, given we only decided a few hours beforehand to go away and made us feel very welcome and relaxed. There was a lovely pub called The Royal Oak literally two minutes across the road, which served lovely food and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Its is an ideal location for the Offa's Dyke Ridge walk, sadly the dreadful weather meant we didn't get to do the walk, but we will definitely be back for another stay.
This site is a very basic CL - no EHU, water across the road and a rough field with no marked pitches. It was fine for a one night stop over but a bit isolated if you want plenty of local activity. As there is no EHU there is no demarcation between pitches which could be a problem if you arrive and there are 3 or 4 'vans randomly sited. The local pub recently reopened and serves reasonable food. The owners were friendly, and our only criticism was the access to the site; it really needs a CL sign on the wall leading into the field. As we were the only 'van on site when we arrived there was nothing to indicate this was the CL. The access is a sharp right turn off the road up an immediate steep slope between two stone walls into a gated field. We have a short 'van but a long one would possibly have the rear end in the road while the 'van owner opened the gate. As it was, I overshot the entrance by a few yards (the name is on the farm building on the other side of the road) and had to reverse back down the road. A CL sign on each wall where it can be seen from the road should be put in place as a matter of safety as soon as possible.
A lovely site. We were welcomed by the site owner who showed us the site. Its a lovely grassed field. Mostly flat with a slight incline up from the road. You need your own sanitation and there is no EHU which is just what we wanted. Water if from a tap in the farm yard as is the chemical toilet emptying point (a manhole cover). Rubbish disposal is at the farm too. You have views of hills and the local village and its lovely church. Sadly the local pub has closed but it should be open again in June. For the stargazers amongst you, you wil not be disappointed. I've never seen so many stars so bring your telescope. Almost a dark sky location. The road from the main road is a good one which meanders up and down as you travel along it. We got our twin axle at 8 metres long and 8 foot wide there with no problem. We hope to return in the future. Its a little gem.
