Why stay here ...

Our certificated location (CL) is located on a working sheep and livery farm. It is a quiet site overlooking a valley of open fields and woods. There are electric hook ups available and the usual domestic facilities, as well as plenty of space for awnings.

Walkers will delight in the range of pleasant farm walks through leafy glades or open fields. Bicycles are also available for hire if you would prefer to make the most of our quiet country lanes. Or simply sit by the lakes sampling the wonderful scenery in a tranquil location. There is also the chance to try some coarse fishing (subject to cormorant activity).

Papers, milk and eggs are available if 24 hours notice is given. Supermarkets and a choice of take away shops are all within 1.7 miles. A local bus service is within 1 mile of the site and a railway station located 2.5 miles away provides links to London, Rugby, Coventry and Birmingham for those who wish to venture further afield.

The nearby estate of Althorp and Coton Manor are within 2.5 miles offering lavish stately homes and stunning gardens to stroll through. Naseby battlefield, Watford locks and Kelmarsh are some other impressive attractions within a short driving distance.

First visit to Northamptonshire

We've just enjoyed a lovely week on this site, best point was the gorgeous view from the pitches, which sloped down a valley and up the other side to green rolling hills. We had no idea that Northamptonshire was such a beautiful county, with plenty of good places to visit, such as the Canal Museum at Stoke Bruerne, Jeyes of Earls Barton and Coton Manor Gardens, all of which were in easy distance and gave us lovely days out! Like other reviewers, we found the owner friendly and helpful, we too received a big welcome pack which was very useful. Another bonus was being invited by the owner to watch a display of dressage and horsemanship being put on in the riding school one evening, which was a unique experience! We will certainly return to this site again, there's plenty around the area we haven't explored yet!

Weekend away with friends

This is a lovely site, we found it rustic and peaceful. Please read your email attachment and note that you will need to use the access code to gain access to the site as we over looked this. We found the owner to be very helpful and patient, we were given a folder full of local attractions which was helpful. We walked to Coton Manor and had a fab day out. Just a word of warning the pub at Ravensthorpe stop serving food when it suits them so best to phone ahead especially if walking. We loved being able to see horses over breakfast, this site was just what we were looking for....thank you for a lovely stay

First Visit

Good site, good basic facilities. Was given information pack by owner who was very friendly and recommended the local pubs etc. Enjoyed watching the horses in the nearby paddocks. Noted a previous comment about road noise and disagree we did not find road noise was a problem. Good location for visiting local relatives. Will definitely return in the near future. Only minor criticism is that the lakes have been recently sold so the website description for this requires updating, otherwise excellent site enjoyed our stay.

Not Recommended

Will not stay here again,as found the owner ignorant and had no idea of sorting a mistake out by other people parking in our marked spot when we went for tea,left our levelling blocks and hook up lead next to the pitch number,to find someone else had taken it when we got back,not only that he used our hook up lead also,could not believe it,and the other member said it was a mistake and refused to move so the owner came over n=and asked us to pitch somewhere else,I dont thin so,also the views were blocked by horse trailers pulling up in front of you and not giving a hoot,he does not care at all,only about his livery yard,do not stay here.

Second visit

This was our second time staying at Covert Farm and hope not the last. Very friendly place had long talk/laugh with Keith.The views are nice with many horses in the field right next to the site, loads of pheasants as well.Rained in the morning so did not get chance to go explore local area so next time... Many thanks.
