Seasonal site

Lovely site but tricky to enter through gates. Once in the ground is very un level but once you get your van level it's a lovely relaxing stay. Perfect location for visiting family. Lovely watching animals etc. We will be back

Nice Site But Beware The Entrance And Exit

We have just had 4 nights at Rose Farm which was really enjoyable. The site is slightly on the small side but well looked after by the owners who were very helpful. Just to echo a previous comment, entry and exit to the site is very tight especially if you have a larger unit. It took a little manoeuvring for me to get our twin axle in and out, the key pad post can cause a problem when trying to turn. One other point was that we had no TV signal on site, something that we have never had anywhere else. Just meant we had to go back to the art of conversation and a couple of DVDs from a charity shop. Overall a very enjoyable site.

Quiet and peaceful site

Stayed at this CL last weekend, Friday to Sunday, lovely location and scenery. Pre-warned by owner of flock of geese in field so not and issue, although lots of droppings around. Also our dog is particularly well behaved so it wasn't a problem with the sheep and geese... The one thing that surprised me that hasn't been mentioned in previous reviews is the entry and exit. There's a post with keypad (not required) on it that restricts the driveway when turning in, long units, we have a Pegasus GT65 Ancona, makes a tight turn. Otherwise well recommended and will visit again.

Beautiful rural site, haven of peace and tranquility, easy to find,easy access,great place to relax in

We've stayed at Rose Farm in our motorhome a few times now and always look forward to it. One of the previous reviews mentioned difficulty of access - doesn't sound like the same location! Easy entrance and any competent driver would have no problems anywhere on site. This is a farm, so expect the poultry and rare breed sheep -all of which add to the charm of the place. They came over to investigate our van but decided to walk away when we got out! Facilities are fine -sensibly grouped in a corner by the entrance to the field. The water tap is conveniently placed in the middle of the field which makes filling up easy. Peaceful and lovely, thoroughly recommend this site.

a little gem

Having read the other reviews I felt compelled to add to them. Having stayed here since it first opened and have subsequently been back loads of times due to family living near by, I think it is a lovely setting. There is room for minor improvements but on the whole it's great. The chickens have never bothered us, they are not usually let out until mid morning, by then we would have gone off somewhere. If you want real countryside then this is it, I didn't mind hearing the cuckoo every morning at 4.00am, then the cockerel at 6.00. If you're lucky you may see the ducklings on the stream. I am hoping this location will continue to thrive.
