Great place for a holiday

Oldfield Bungalow
What a lovely little piece of England. We stayed on this CL for just over two weeks in September and to our mind the perfect CL. The fact that yes, although there is some road noise, it certainly did not ruin our time there. Most of the traffic was farm orientated and it is in the country!! The toilet was up and running when we visited and once the busy season (I know, it is always busy on a farm) is over, I am sure that the information half of the cabin will be finished. The owners of this new CL should be proud of themselves. All level pitches, grass regularly mowed ( and cuttings removed - always a bonus !) with the toilet facility and immaculate 'service' area - brilliant. Good luck to the owners. Shame on the person who left their ground sheet in situ for the length of their stay.

Great site

Oldfield Bungalow
New site with considerate owners. Chris and Jillian very accomodating and interested in making your stay very good. Level site with lovely condition grass in great location with electric and toilet. Walk on Long Mynd was incredible. Village has pub, shop, fuel station and butchers. Not open all week though for some. Nice 6 mile run road circuit from sìte, very quiet. Lots of great walks within 20 mins. Access for caravans good. Best approach is maybe from north but we did south on arrival in error and it was alright. Good luck Chris and Jillian we will be back.

Great site

Oldfield Bungalow
Chris and Jill deserve to do really well with this site. It isn’t an area we know but were very impressed with all the amenities the small village of Ditton Priors offers. We used the Willows Cafe, the shop, the garage and the farm shop, all within easy walking distance of the site. We also went to The Boyle Arms by taxi (company owned by the owner of the pub so no extra charge) and had a lovely meal. Chris and Jill are perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble. They even helped me out with wellies when I forgot my walking boots but don’t try this unless you’re size 5! There is an immaculate toilet and chemical disposal, EHU and water points are all conveniently placed. I couldn’t give it 5 for peace and tranquillity because as others say it’s next to a road but it really didn’t bother us and when it was quiet it was stunningly quiet. At night the sounds of owls and other creatures was magical.

Nice little site

Oldfield Bungalow
This is new site only opened in July, Chris and Jill were very welcoming new toilet block and facilities very clean the field is nice and flat walking distance to the pub and shops in Dittonpriors if you have a dog there’s a dog walk through a gate. The only downside there’s a lane behind the site which can be busy and noisy during day but that didn’t put us of. So will definitely be going back and would highly recommend this site Thanks Chris and Jill enjoyed our week at your site Gloria and Alan

Stunning little CL

Oldfield Bungalow
What a wonderful find this was. Chris and Jillian were absolutly fantastic. Bent over backwards to help us. Nothing was to much trouble. Chris even waited for us to go out so the mower wouldnt disturb us even though it had been mown just a couple of days earlier. He even moved his cows to a distant fiels so we could excersise the dogs in the massive field adjacent to our pitch. Chris obviously feels the CL is the future. He wanted to know any idea's we had to improve things to put them into practice. He is also installing a toilet which may be already done by the date i write this 25Th August 2021. He isn't just after your money. They charge £1 for dogs but he wouldn't take the fee for our two. He said he wasn't charging people this year at all. Most owners would chop your fingers off when £10 cash is waived at them. So refreshing to deal with. As you can tell I was impressed. One slight niggle. The lane behind is a bit busy mainly with agricultural tractors and stuff. It does go fairly quiet at night with a few boy racers it sounded like but these were few and far between. Chris recognise's this issue and has planted and additional row of conifers which hopefully are fast growing. The local area is fantastic. Beatuful village and walks. We went up Brown Clee Hill and over to Long Mynd.Fantastic views at the top of each. Chris even gave us tips where to park. Another example which we did not experience is that a local pub has an arrangement with Chris, if you book a meal there they will pick you up and take you back to the site afterwards all free (not the meal). We were there 5 days at the start of August and were amongst the first to use this site. We will be going back and it will get very popular. Thank you Chris, Jillian and Charlie Graham and Ellie
