We stayed for a few nights in August. Level site with plenty of room. Tree at gate needed pruning back. Toilet disposal is a very short car ride away, but no problem. Walking opportunities from the site, and we were pleasantly surprised by Daventry...
Set in tranquil countryside, four miles from the charming little town of Daventry. We received a friendly welcome from the site owner who showed us the facilities, then allowed us to enjoy our stay unhindered. Previous comments regarding chemical toilet disposal were found to be unfounded. Each morning we loaded our w.c. cassette into the car with recycling, grey waste water etc. plenty of parking in the farmyard. With virtually no traffic this site is so quiet, we will be making this a regular stop when visiting relations in the area.
We spent 2 nights here and would definitely return. The site is level and well draining with views across the fields. While we were there the next door field had young calves which was an added bonus. Previous comments about the distance to reach the elsan disposal are fair. This is at the farm and if your cassette is not on wheels would probably require you to drive. However, the building work is now complete so once in the yard, the manhole accessible. There are now self catering units by the farmhouse if you have friends without a motorhome/caravan. The only noise was birds and the occasional barking of the farm dogs, and the stars were bright as there is no light pollution. Lovely site and welcoming owner.
We visited this site at the beginning of December 2017. It has lovely views and is so peaceful, absolutely no road noise just the birds and the occasional cow or sheep. We went on an interesting walk that travelled alongside the Catesby tunnel, an amazing feat of construction dating back to 1897. The walk also included a section of the Jurassic Way that on the whole is well signposted. The weather had been wet and the walk included ploughed fields so be prepared with stout footwear and gaiters. There is what looked to be an inviting pub in the nearby village of Charwelton, it was outside of opening times when we walked through the village so we were unable to sample the food or drink. The Red Lion at Hellidon, another village close by, is shut at present and judging by the skips outside is in the process of being renovated. Mrs North is having 3 holiday lets built that should be available for next year. They will be ideal if friends or relatives without a caravan/motorhome wanted to join in and experience the peaceful surroundings. We would definitely visit again
Site is quite and views are ok , there is a secured gate with padlock when in and out , BUT the ELSON point is a nightmare, they are having building work done and the Elson point is behind the new build which at present has scaffolding , this you have to manuvere around, then is just a man hole with a watering can, This is at least 300 yds if not more away from site. so really not good for those of us not extremely fit and able . Would only use again if the elson point was near to the site .
