Beautiful site

Hucks Barn Farm
We have just returned from a short stay in this beautiful site. It is a large orchard with pitches dotted around the edge providing peaceful space. The ground is really well maintained with short grass or hard standing. We will definitely visit again.

A Marmite site

Hucks Barn Farm
If you have a caravan and you are directed to one of the grass pitches, then the site is good. You have an individual mown glade most of which, if not all, are fully serviced. However if you have a motorhome you are directed to 1 of 3 hard standing pitches that are set in a row. First point - we weren't asked for a deposit when booking but the full amount. Secondly there are only 2 water taps between the 3 pitches so these aren't fully serviced. Finally the 3 pitches are seriously on a slope. We couldn't level our motorhome with large levellers and it was so bad that our shower couldn't maintain an even water temperature and the water overflowed the shower tray. Our 2 neighbours both had automatic levelling systems and both had 2 wheels completely off the ground. Two berth motorhomes could be OK.

Unpleasant greeting

Hucks Barn Farm
Owner was rude on arrival. We made an error of going onto the site and she spoke to us rather rudely. We had reduced our stay as my nephew was emigrating to Australia. We had given plenty of notice which she herself confirmed. She felt it was acceptable to tell me my nephew was not a close member of my family and she had not managed to relet one out of the 4 nights. Not knowing us, it was rude to comment on who is and who is not a close member of our family. Having lost 3 members of my family within 5 years, yes my nephew is a close family member!!!! On paying the balance she announced she was keeping the change and she could have charged us for the night not rebooked. It was only a £1 but again her manner was extremely rude. Thankfully it’s not a welcome we’ve ever experienced before. Will not return.

The apple of our eye !

Hucks Barn Farm
Just back from a 4 night stay and I must say this is one of the best CL sites we have been too in just 9 months on the road! A beautiful layout of several pitches with 4 of them being hard standing with water and EHU to each. There are some grass pitches as well. Every spot is well spaced out with mowed grass areas providing the routes between each. Unmowed areas that have been allowed to grow wild give a great feeling of some of the spots being completely private. There are various fruit trees scattered around although wrong time of year for picking :-) Mrs Davies has everything well organised and will ask you to stop at the entrance and walk with her to your allocated spot whilst she explains everything you need. Great spot for turning left at the gate at the top of the site so that you can go walking into the forest. Turn right at the gate and its a casual 25min stroll into Ludlow with all its great facilities on tap. Really great site to relax and use as a base for discovering Ludlow and the surrounding scenery and its now a site that is on our 'goto' list for the future! Simon and Sarah Motorhomers

Superb CL for tranquility and great walks

Hucks Barn Farm
Stayed here for 2 nights from a ‘Motorhome happiness’ recommendation, what a super CL site and such a find. Welcoming owners, well spaced out pitches in a lovely orchard and second to none recycling. Walking access to Ludlow and forest walks on the doorstep (Mortimer way, Mary Knoll and Shropshire way). The history of Ludlow is well worth looking into, a very significant town throughout the ages. Great meal at the Charlton Arms on the way into Ludlow from site 15 minute walk, great food and dogs welcome.
