CL ?

I always thought a CL was a 5 van limit. This is a large residential caravan site, we ended up on pitch 20 something among a lot of vans which were obviously permanently sited. Very loud traffic noise as the road just on the other side of the hedge is busy. Key coded entry gate might be interesting if you have a long outfit as it is timed and the exit road can be busy.

The owner saved us and we're so grateful!

I cannot express how grateful we are to the owner of this site. We rarely book in advance as we just drive, then ring around from about 4/5pm. However we really misjudged on this particular day last week. I started ringing around 6.30/7. I didn't get an answer from anybody. I finally rang this site at 7.45pm (as we'd obviously travelled further towards where we were heading by then). I apologised for ringing so late but Mr Eccleston couldn't have been more accommodating. He wasn't even at the site. He was having a couple of days break but said he'd ring the on site warden and ring me back. As good as his word, he did. He couldn't get hold of the warden but told us just to pitch up when we got there. He gave me the code to get in and pitch number. The fee was £15 (no problem to us whatsoever!) and he asked us to leave it in the honesty box. I was so touched by his trust I gave him my name, membership number, phone number and offered the van reg number which he declined. He could have quite easily just said no. The site itself is lovely and very well organised and maintained. Full recycling facilities, hook up, etc. Toilet and shower very clean with full disabled access. We were very impressed. Oh and the wifi IS NOT £150 a night. Ha ha. It's £1.50! Cheaper than the club sites! We didn't use it though as we didn't arrive until 9pm and we were exhausted. We have a motorhome and use all of our own facilities. We literally needed a stop off before going to Farmer Phils music festival in Shropshire, so that we could shower, then fill up with water, empty the loo, etc. We were very impressed by both how accommodating the owner was and the site itself. We'll DEFINITELY be back! Thank you!

Nice site but not a CL

If you are looking for a CL, that is, up to give caravans then this is not a site for you. The "CL" is a row of five pitches against a tall hedge. Opposite this and only 10 yards away on the opposite side of this area are approx. 7 seasonally pitched caravans. On the other side of the hedge there are 15 seasonally pitched caravans with 10 more pitches soon to be ready beyond those. The pitches are flat, three on hardstanding wide enough for just a caravan/motorhome and two fully on grass. The two toilets and one urinal were clean. Shower effective, costs 20p. Limited dog walking as road is busy with no walkable verge. Owner and seasonal occupiers were friendly. If I stay again I will ask for a different pitch as I have a biggish motorhome and found leaving and entering the pitch restrictive with the caravan opposite sited only about 8 yards from our pitch (No. 22)

Road Noise an issue

The charges given above are wrong. It is £15 per night. Wi Fi is available at £150 per night!!!!!! There is a charge to use the showers. Strangely you get 10 mins for £1 or 4 mins for 20p. The shower cubicle is in the gents toilet part of the portacabin. With the shower door closed the cubicle is very tight, with elbow banging trying to get dressed. The club pitches back onto a hedge with a separate site directly behind. The gap between backs of caravans 2 meters max !!!!! The site is on a very busy road, used by HGV's as well, as a sort of rat run between Oswestry and Shrewsbury. It is very noisy from early morning, slacking of during the day, then very noisy late afternoon into the evening..

Quiet and friendly

Had a one-night stop here last week and wished we could have stopped longer. Small, quiet site (some road noise at peak hours but not during night). Great place to stay to access many tourist places, ancient towns and good walking not too far away. Mr Eccleston was very friendly and helpful and seems to have great plans to improve the facilities, already having spent a lot money on providing the hidden extras like good access and security features (not that security was an issue in such a quiet location). And, his Begonias were amazing!
