Why stay here ...

A well-maintained little site, overlooking open country but only 500 yards from the village centre and canal-side attractions. Stoke Bruerne, home to the Waterways Museum, is a picturesque village on the Grand Union canal in a beautiful area of South Northants. A busy little place, alive with colourful canal boats. Relax at one of the two pubs by the canal - both serve food - or try the Indian restaurant with takeaway service.

This site is also ideal for golf, fishing and Star Gazing.

Dogs are very welcome on our site.

Relaxing weekend

This site is peaceful despite being beside a road. The ease of access to the canal provides plenty of opportunities for walking and there is also the Northamptonshire Round to explore. The local blacksmith, Bob Nightingale, has a workshop on the canal side that is a really interesting place to visit, where it is possible to purchase a variety of items. We bought two beautiful coat hooks and the candlesticks are also very reasonably priced, ideal for gifts. Bob is also a really interesting person to talk to. There is a canal museum, cafe and shop plus a stained glass workshop also within easy walking distance. Unfortunately the cafe was closed when we visited. Right next door to the site is the pub which is bright and cheerful, it also serves breakfast every morning. We would definitely visit again.

Lovely site

stayed at the end of August 2017. We are in a motorhome and originally planned to stop at the Navigation overnight (Brit Stops) but their carpark was rather crowded and we spotted this CL next door. Luckily the owner was mowing the grass so we asked if we could stay and he said OK. £9 without hookup. Lovely peaceful field with horses next door - someone left a gate open and the next morning they were in the field with us which was quite a laugh. The area is so pretty being on the side of the canal. Believe that it is possible to cycle along the canal but do not know how far as we were only there overnight. Had a really lovely meal in the Navigation (2 sirloin steak dinners & a bottle of wine for £20). Definitely worth a stop.

Lovely site

We used this site as a stopover for one night en route from Scotland but it really deserves a longer visit. Very neat and tidy, with a lovely outlook and a very pretty village location. We had a nice, reasonably priced meal in the pub next door, which overlooks the canal with it's colourfull narrowboats. We noticed a little bit of early morning road noise but we didn't find it a problem. We hope to return for a longer stay.

Lovely clean and tidy site.  We visit local relatives 2 or 3 times a year and always stay on this site.  Never a problem.  In fact, going again today !

Recommended Weekend Getaway

Loving this little CL. Well maintained and in a peaceful and pretty village location. A true bonus having two canal side pubs and a very good Indian restaurant next door. No time to explore but the canal side location and museum offer a great weekend getaway
