Lovely Site

Hucks Barn Farm
This is a lovely peaceful site set in an old orchard with large areas of wild flower meadow. Great views of local countryside and easy access for walking. Pitches all have electric and water and are well spaced out so you are hardly aware of over caravans. Some pitches are on a slope whilst others are flat on hard standing. Great location for visiting Ludlow and other local attractions. Owner was very helpful on arrival and showed us to our pitch.

Wow the absolute worst welcome we’ve ever had in 20 years caravanning

Hucks Barn Farm
I generally don’t do reviews but after a pretty shocking experience I just to hard warn others. Wow where to start - we booked this site back in December for a stay 2 weeks ago. We’d duly paid the deposit and the balance in plenty of time and received no comms, confirmation, info about the protocol for arriving at all SO… We duly rocked up at about 1pm on our arrival day, made our way up to the site entrance stopped at the big sign that was very unclear about instructions for arrival so we promptly headed on to the site as we’ve done many times before on CLs thought we’d get pitched up and then advise the hosts of our arrival spotted a couple of empty pitches and started to pitch up. Well 20mins to that in a screaming shouty and frankly damn right rude and aggressive woman came on to the site shouting at us and accusing us of trespassing, throwing shouty comments at us about who do we think we are just pulling onto the site without checking with them 1st. Well obviously we apologised profusely for the confusion and explained we had no other instructions from them but no that wasn’t good enough and she continued to verbally abuse us, when calmly asked what she’d like us to do now she threw out a ‘I want you to leave’ statement. After many more apologies she went on to say clearly she should have called us to confirm details but she hadn’t so not our fault, she then suggested it was our fault for booking so far in advance and why did we do that, she even then continued to try and blame us for the confusion. Numerous times I asked what would she like us to do or move to another pitch for instance but she just couldn’t get over her anger over the confusion caused by them. 20 minutes this went in for until I finally insisted we’d just move pitches to a grass one she had suggested was where she wanted us. Well if you want a nice visit to Ludlow and south Shropshire then fill your boots it’s a lovely location BUT definitely dont stay here unless you want your head biting off by a frankly rude, aggressive and horrible woman to kick start your trip. It didn’t spoil our trip why would it it wasn’t us that was apocoliptic over a nothing issue. We will never go back to this site I’m afraid after such a shocking verbal attack. And to top it off this CL is breaking the rules by having more than 5 units staying there at any one time oops appears they can’t count either. Avoid the place like the plague.

Just the perfect CL

Hucks Barn Farm
This large tranquil site is just the most perfect way to enjoy the wonderful town of Ludlow. The helpful owner will take you to the best pitch for your unit and make sure all is well. Then you may relax amongst the orchard, enjoying the peace and quiet. Bliss.

One of the best sites we have stayed on!!!!

Hucks Barn Farm
Hucks Barn is a lovely site, this the second time we have stayed there, it is set in an orchard, pitches are spaced out so you can hardly se your neighbour, paths are kept mowed but areas for wild flowers and insect are let to grow. Ideal for dogs, footpaths direct from the top of the site. Easy walk into Ludlow, we hope to be back before too long, ignore the comments re the site owners we were made welcome, just wait to shown your pitch.

Enjoyed the overall experience.

Hucks Barn Farm
Interesting reviews by people; and after talking to owner when booking on phone I was apprehensive of our meeting when we arrived. She is just direct and has her own way in communication. (The old addage don't judge a book by it cover).I found this not a problem and was shown to our allocated spot. Loads of room separated each L' and water point. Take levelling blocks the site is a on a slope. In amongst trees and hedge rows the site is very quiet. It has easy access to lots of foot paths. The old drove which takes you to the road half way to Ludlow. Side walk along the road for the rest of a 25 minute walk in total. Ideally suited for Ludlow. There was quite a few horse flies so take a repellent but proved not a problem overall. We enjoyed our stay overall on this spacious ideally sited site. With a friendly wave as we left it was easy access to the main carriageways and off.
