Disappointing.

Stayed for 2 nights in May. Site was very quiet, just 2 units on the CL. At this time of year the campsite was nearly empty - so we had to give it 5 stars for peace and tranquility. Other reviews have mentioned the disruption from campers, they have to access their field via a track that is very close to the CL so it could be very noisy. Website stated that the CL has exclusive use of a toilet and shower (next to the farmhouse) this is not the case as people from the stables also use this. The website does not mention a £1 per night charge for dogs, only found about this when the invoice arrived. The photograph is rather misleading, there are no views from this site at caravan level - a barn on one side, brick wall on the other, tall hedge towards road and finally the access road to the tent camp site and another large barn. Expensive with the additional costs for children, dogs etc. When I paid by debit card (full amount) I was told to come into the farmhouse when we arrived, when I did this the owner was indifferent to say the least, just told to go and pitch up. It would have been nice to have been told where the facilities were, the toilet was right next door to the farmhouse front door and I had to ask her if it was the CL toilet. I would not have gone wandering round the farmhouse area looking for the shower/toilet. There is a block of 4 other toilets at the back of the barn, we found these later, these are much closer to the CL, but would have been busy had there been more tents. Access roads to the site are very narrow. We only stay on site at night, we are out during the day in the camper van, so it had all we needed, but we have stayed on much better sites & at cheaper prices. Would we stay here again - not sure.

getting too busy

We have been coming to this cl for years and loved it. Recently a field has been opened to campers and it is now just too busy and noisy. The campers have to drive along side of the cl field to get to their pitches and they travel well above a 5 mph limit. The route is gravel so very noisy and the toilet and showers are over run at weekends and during the summer.  It was a fabulous site but we are now looking for somewhere else in the area that would suit us better. The owners have never been very sociable or available but I think it is because they are too busy. Such a pity because it was one of our favourite sites.??

Sadly not what it was !!!!

Having visited this site over a number of years we were very disappointed that the need to earn a living from the land has taken over from running a quiet little CL. The CL is just inside the farm entrance with all the farm and visitor traffic passing by, not a problem out of season but our last visit there was 6 Caravans on the CL and a further 48 pitches and Glamping pods in a field through the farm (50m from the CL) with every mix of unit but mainly campers who put enormous demand on the 4 showers and 4 toilets, sadly the new toilets they installed were of a portacabin nature and not new. There is also a Farm Stay B&B run from the farmhouse and a livery / stabling business in the barns. Out of season I'm sure this would still be a great place to stay but avoid during the school holidays and hot summer weekends. As others have noted the warm reception from Val has sadly gone as they struggle to keep all the balls in the air. I note that it has gone up again and is now £16/night which frankly makes it too expensive !!!

Getting expensive

Went to this site last year and went on the rear where the views are excellent but that is for none members and they have built pods there now. Stayed on the official CL.The view was very poor with barns, a grain silo and the toilets being our view with a small gap to the open country. The CL would be very quiet and peaceful at certain times of the year and was during the week but at weekend the non CL site gets packed (there were 30-40 tents and vans there) and the toilets and showers are shared between the cl and the non cl. There was a lot of noise from someone riding a motor bike , and on the Saturday low flying planes, non stop from a field more or less next door. The site was £12 last year with ehu and toilets and showers but has now gone up to £14. We parked infront of the hedge and were inundated with earwigs. The site is flat. It will be our last visit.

Good site shame about the welcome

Unfortunately we got the impression that Mrs Southerland did not have any time for us and we were just left to be shown round by one of the campers which was fine as she was running late but there was no further communication. She runs a very busy operation but is not very welcoming. Such a shame as the area and facilities of the site are very good
