Lovely Waterside Retreat

Witham Hall Farm
This back to basics CL has charmed us. From first phone contact where we were advised to stop at the farmhouse (ample off lane parking for outfit) where a map clearly directs you to the nearby CL's gate. Envelopes are provided should you wish to pay in advance or during your stay. Approach is easy, even with a large twin axle and 4X4. Plenty of level area to pitch on, we didn't need to use levelling aids. Fresh water, elsan, recycling and rubbish are well organised. Elsan disposal point a delight to use, has its own tap too. No formal pitches, pitch where you want. We and the other two outfits had pitched close to the waters edge. Plethora of bird and insect life to be had. You are able to walk around the pools but you can only pitch on one side. The pool is shared with anglers but we only saw one the two days we were there. Lovely tranquil experience but you need to be aware of the adjacent low speed branch rail line. Trains were infrequent and not loud at all. Don't let the rail line put you off visiting. Our only regret is that we don't live closer to this CL as it could easily become one of our favourites.

Probably the best CL

Witham Hall Farm
I know reviews are by their nature subjective but we certainly don't know what could be done to make this site any better for us. If only there were more of these non EHU sites at a reasonable price.

One of the best non-EHU sites we have stayed at

Witham Hall Farm

I phoned to book this site when we were travelling back from Bath to Cornwall after our son's graduation. We just needed somewhere to sleep in our campervan before the drive home. I left a message for the owner and luckily she phoned me back just as we were about to give up and try somewhere else. I'm so glad she did! What a fantastic site! We did miss the turning and had to turn around. The gate was well signed so we knew we were in the right place. The site is huge with lovely views over the fishing lakes with lots of wildlife. We went for a walk the following morning and followed the footpath through the trees with bluebells and wild garlic and lots of song birds and waterfowl. We didn't meet the owner (we left the money in the letterbox).  There was some noise from the trains passing but this didn't spoil our visit.  I wish we could've stayed longer and explored more.

Witham Hall Farm
We have used this site numerous times and love it, It is a lovely peaceful site with no traffic within hear shot, the fishing is free if you are staying on the site, or just relax and watch the wildlife on and off the lake, frome is approximately 6 miles away for shopping, there is also a cider farm about a mile away, the site is not suitable for motorhomes as there is nothing within walking distance

Pleasant site but long grass

Witham Hall Farm
After going along a short rough track past a rather scruffy parking area for fishermen/women the area opens out into a large expanse of grass to the left of the lake. There is now a small wooden building containing a toilet and whb with a disabled facility that was currently unfinished and inaccessible. The grass was rather long; the only areas cut were around the tap and the cdp/waste bin where the long grass cuttings and nettles had been left on the ground. At £6 it was excellent value. The directions state "Turn right at sp Witham Friary" but there is no signpost! However the road is obvious. On arrival I was not asked to show my membership card.
