Quiet but not remote

Just come back from a 5 night stay here. We usually stay on CAMC main sites when touring in the UK so for us staying on a CL was a bit of an unknow entity, and because of the experience on this particular one we will certainly me trying out more. We used the site postcode and a sat nav to find the site. We were travelling uphill on station road and site was quite easy to spot on the left hand side with nice wide easy access entrance. Only slight niggle is as already mentioned by others, there are no signs to help finding reception. We asked a very helpful fellow where to pay for our pre booked stay and he told us where to go and what to do. Having announced our arrival and paid our fees we moved across the field to the camping area which is very different to the usual CAMC affair. Basically park up however you like and plug into the electric hook up. More than plenty of space with no pitch limits. One night the site was full with 5 outfits but it did not feel at all busy - plenty of space for everyone to spread out and still enjoy some privacy. The camping filed is very well maintained with short grass and good drainage. We had our fair share of rain and the whole site is grass and never became at all muddy. There are also large areas of grass left to do its own thing. We really liked this as it felt like staying in a meadow. The water supply is nearby and rubbish bins are discreetly shrouded from view. Toilet was a short but pleasant walk along a well mown grass path. Alarm bells rung on my first trip to the loo - its a garden shed - but no need to worry. Its spotlessly clean and plenty big enough so definitely not a problem. Chemical toilet emptying point is adjacent to the shed and outside - this also worked well and was kept very clean and tidy. Also we met the owner a number of times and he was very helpful and helped us solve a problem we had so full marks and thank you. Location is outside any towns but lots of small Cotswold towns and villages within easy visiting distance. Overall a great place for anyone to visit, definitely not just great for couples or just families, we fell this site has appeal for all who like a quiet stay away from the tourist crowds but still want to be able to visit the sights.

summer holidays

just spent two weeks at this C.L. I put five ticks to ease of arrival because its so easy to find and get onto the site , but as for a welcome it was non existing we had to find our way to the pitches, find out where the water taps were, find out where the toilet was, but apart from those gripes its a lovely site, very unusual layout with the actual site the grass is cut very tight and tidy with the remaining grass growing three foot high which was lovely,.the toilet was very basic but clean,its in a lovely position to visit all of the Cotswolds little villages and towns..we would return .

All good.

Relatively peaceful site with an excellent view. Only noise problem was the occasional racing car (or bike) on the fast main road. Our pitch seemed to slope in every direction so needed a ramp on one side and blocks for the front legs. The toilet is literally a garden shed but was clean.  Would be happy to return.

A lovely site

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was a beautiful location and very tranquil. We liked the layout with a neatly mown spacious area to pitch and large unmown areas to encourage wildlife, particularly birds of prey. The owner told us that there are red kites, buzzards and kestrels in the area. We would definitely recommend this CL.
