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.

Idyllic site

We have just spent a long weekend at this wonderful site. It is a basic grass site which we prefer. Some levelling may be required.There is water, an elsan point, bins for recycling, well cut grass,dog friendly and easy to access, what more is needed. It is next to the Grand Union Canal and the Navigstion pub but none of these were intrusive, despite it being a bank holiday (although at the moment in these mad times outside eating only for the pubs). It was good to watch the boats going through the locks, these were a short walk from the site. There are an abundance of walks in the area if you like walking and within an easy walk of the site are 2 pubs, a wonderful Indian restaurant (take away only again at the moment), the canal museum (shut while we were there) with its cafe (which was open). We can vouch for the food in all these places and the Ice cream from the Boat Inn. Easy walking along the canal side, a lot of it pushchair/wheelchair friendly and plenty of places to cycle, there is a bus stop in the village of Stoke Bruerne. We saw many buses but at this particular time had no need to use them. The lady owner came & collected your money and she was lovely to deal with. She promptly replied to our e-mails when booking too.

CL site basic but great location

Very nice site alongside the Grand Union Canal, with easy access to the canal for walkers and cyclist and two wonderful pubs the Navigation and The Boat Inn, both service excellent food with canal side seating. There is also an Indian restaurant alongside the canal, The Canal Museum, and a small canal shop, waterside cafe and a very nice 5 mile walk around the countryside shown below. This site is nicely located not far from Towcester for shopping, petrol and a selection of supermarkets or you are not far from Northampton main town. Located not far from the main M1 making this site an excellent stop over if you are traveling up/down the country.

A basic site but close to the canal and several places to eat and drink

Stayed September 2019. Having just bought our motorhome we wanted somewhere close to try it out. This is a basic site with just water and a a place to get rid of waste. The site is fairly level and there are some trees for shade, be careful when you come of the entry track as there a few dips. The lady that owns the site is lovely and when we were there she came along and collected the payment, not sure this would happen now in Covid times :( The field is next to the canal but does not have direct access. To walk along the canal you need to go through the back of the pub car park which is next to the field. Stoke Bruerne is a lovely village with a couple of pub and the walks either way on the canal are lovely.

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.
