Had a lovely welcome from George the site warden, who showed us options of where we could pitch. The site is large and deliberately left to nature, with some areas where the grass is cut, to pitch. The price includes electricity, so is very good value for money. There is easy access by car to Northampton, and its a short walk through a meadow to The Walnut Tree Inn in Blisworth, which serves lovely food. I believe there is also another pub in Gayton Now that trains are back on schedule there is some train noise, but we didn't find it too disturbing. The approach roads to the site involve some narrow blind bridges, but the road traffic isn't too bad. Enjoyed staying there and intend returning.
We spent 5 nights at The Limes. As we have an 8ft wide caravan we phoned beforehand to check access. George couldn't have been more helpful and opened up a secondary access gate for us. George led us through to our pitch, down a tree-lined lane and the pitches are arranged so it feels very private. We were vaguely aware of the odd train passing, but nothing to disturb our stay or sleep. George is a huge asset to The Limes! He checks back to make sure you're pitched okay and gives good local knowledge for walks and places to eat, with a cheeky smile and banter thrown in for good measure. We had a fab stay and won't hesitate to return.
Lovely site, v secluded, lots of wildlife to watch and the pitches feel v private from each other. Some train noise as others have said but we didn't find it intrusive. Nearest pub in Gayton looks perm closed. The Greyhound pub and local shop in the opp direction are walkable (<2miles away), but the shop isn't especially well stocked - no eggs, cheese, papers etc the Sat we stopped by for supplies. Super close to the canal and a great base for walking and cycling through this lovely county.
We’d just picked up our caravan and wanted to see if everything worked. This site was roughly half way between our home & the dealership, ideal in case things went wrong! The site was easy to find and access was OK along the country lanes. The owner was very friendly & very welcoming, helped us to get set up and helpfully answered our newbie caravan pitching questions without complaint. The only criticism - and I’m probably being picky - is that we’d asked for a hardstanding pitch and were pitched on quite a soft patch of stone/ballast, but that worked for us as we could drive straight on/off. There was some noise from the railway, as other reviews had said, but that didn’t bother us. The site was basic, but, we didn’t want/need anything more as we wanted to be self-sufficient, so, was exactly what we wanted. Overall, it was an enjoyable stay. There are some nice walks along the nearby canal tow paths.
We literately stumbled upon this CL site and as we live locally we thought we'd give it a try. We had only just bought our tourer and wanted to try it out before setting of on our next adventure (just as well as we had a few minor problems with it) We booked over the phone and when we arrived the warden was at the gate ready to greet us. He gave us directions to our plot and followed us down on foot and was ready to meet us when we got to the plot. It's a lovely place, very quiet and tranquil (except for the odd train) We had initially booked for 7 nights but have now extended that to 21 nights. The Grand Union Canal is very close and many pleasant walks are to be had It is a very basic site with water, electric hook ups, and toilet disposal. Gayton Marina is a short drive away if you need a gas bottle (or feel the need to hire a day boat for a cruise) and I believe there is a pub nearby (need to check that one out) ten minutes up the road is a Tesco supermarket and Northampton town is about a 15 minute drive with KFC, and MacDonalds Alde, Lidl, and a B&Q. The Warden George is probably one of the kindest and most helpful people I have ever met, he is really nice guy! Some other reviewers have said that the noise from the nearby train line is noisy and to be honest yes you can rear them but we did not find them very intrusive. The site is open all year.
