An excellent site

Thank you Ros and Nick. We stayed here for 1 night on our way north from the Plymouth ferry and received a very warm welcome. We were provided with a map to a local pub and given directions and recommendations to others. The site is very well kept and the pitches are flat. The facilities are clearly marked and very clean. We will definitely stay here again when visiting family and friends in the area.

Fabulous site, will go again.

This is truly a gem of a site. Roz and Nick are superb hosts, second to none. This site is just about perfect, with flat pitches and surrounded by hedgerows full of Autumn fruit. Arrival is easy through good sized gates. Locally there is so much to do, a drive up to Cheddar Gorge through Glastonbury and Wells is a lovely day out. The cider farm also has a large barn full of nick nacks at extremely reasonable prices. The cider is great too. We will be back (with more gin) as soon as we can make it. In summary, go to this site, it is beautiful, one of the best we have visited.

A great little site

Apologies to Nick and Roz, we visited in mid July and I fully intended to write a review when we got home, but things got in the way, until this evening. Every now and again we come across sites that remind us why we like caravanning so much, this is one of those sites. Nick and Roz gave us a lovely warm welcome, make sure we were happy with our pitch and explaining where everything was located. Not only that but a welcoming cup of tea was gratefully received. The site is a superb. It is a really good size, allowing caravans/motorhomes to be well spaced, the pitches are even and grass is cut beautifully. There is a railway across the bottom of the site, but it is in a cutting and we hardly noticed it. This is a really easy site to find and is a great location for discovering the local area. It is a long way from our home, but next time we head that way Southfield will be on our must visit list.

A Little Gem

What a fabulous CL the welcome was second to none Nick and Roz are the perfect hosts.we had a cup of tea made for us by their son Finlay who I must say makes a lovely cup of tea and brought to us on a tray with biscuits. The CL is immaculate which also has recycling facilities There is a train line near but didn’t bother us as the trees seem to block out most of the noise. It’s about 15 mins from the M5 if your going to Cornwall/Devon this is a fabulous place to stay Thankyou Roz and Nick and your 2 lovely boys Finlay and Oliver see you again Colin and Sandy

Peaceful nights.

Thank you Nick and Roz for such a friendly welcome after our long drive South. The site is spacious and immaculately kept, with a mix of level grass and hardstanding pitches. EHU to each pitch and plenty of room between each pitch. Good communication on booking, and prior to arrival. We will certainly use again if we travel down to Cornwall again. A much needed peaceful stop-over from the M5.
