Why stay here ...

Come to our quiet site (adults only and no dogs) in rural Staffordshire and be pleasantly surprised by our rolling countryside, winding rivers and friendly villages set in the National Forest. It is a great base for visiting historic houses, castles and market towns, the National Memorial Arboretum and the famous Burton breweries.

The CL is on our family farm where we rear Hereford beef supplying a very local butcher who opened a shop on our farm in 2018. We also use our grassland to make hay and haylage for sale.

After converting two more redundant farm buildings we now have:-

  • A butcher who sells a fantastic range of high quality local meat togerther with a well-stocked delicatessen, eggs, milk and a wide range of fruit and vegetables.
  • A bakery and patisserie who sells very 'more-ish' bread, cakes and local ice cream.
  • An off-licence that sells craft gins, ciders, beers and wine for you to enjoy as you unwind on our CL on a pleasant summer evening.

Please note that the shops on site close at 4pm on Saturdays and open again on Tuesdays.

The CL is situated a field away from the road and away from the retail area so it remains a quiet site with a high hedge to the north and lower hedges around the other three sides. It is slightly sloping so levelling blocks may be required. We keep it mown and the hook-ups are well spaced to allow maximum choice for enjoying the views across the valley.

We have a village a mile away which has a very good newsagents/grocery/alcohol store (open early till late, 7 days a week) and a hair and beauty salon. There are two pubs in Yoxall, The Golden Cup and The Crown and a five minute walk from our site is The Foresters Arms. All provide good food but booking is advisable.

There are plenty of places to visit without travelling too far and many choose us as we are not far from The National Memorial Arboretum. Other places include the Cathedral city of Lichfield, Burton on Trent brewing museum, the National Forest Visitor Centre, Cannock Chase, Uttoxeter Racecourse, Barton Marina and Fradley Junction on the canal, Ashbourne (gateway to the Peak District) is a thirty minute drive away and further afield are the Potteries at Stoke on Trent.

Local historic houses include Sudbury Hall, Shugborough, Calke Abbey and Keddleston Hall. If you like historic traditions there is the Abbots Bromley Horn Dance in September when the dancers travel around the picturesque village carrying ancient antlers and dancing throughout the day as they have done for centuries.

We hope this has given you an idea of our site which visitors find quiet and relaxing while being within reach of many places to visit and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Wonderful site with handy stores

Woodmill Farm
Absolutely lovely adults only site, no dogs, just peaceful and quiet. Just off A515 north of Yoxhall and easy to find. Lovely, welcome by farmer. The site is fully grassed, slightly sloping requiring levelling blocks. EHU Spaced well around the field and watering waste, discreetly hidden behind small hedges in far corner. There are some lovely views from the top of the field and far side, (some hedge trimming to allow better views please), A few minutes walk to the on-site butchers, bakers, Deli, gift, shop, with wine, beer and spirits. Fresh fruit and vegetables are available daily, except Sunday and Mondays. We had some lovely meat from the butchers where there is an extensive range to choose from. The Deli has a wide selection of cheeses. The bakery has a tempting selection of goodies and also served hot drinks, pizza and sandwiches. We bought fish on the Friday also. No need to stock up on a lot of food before you arrive, it’s all on site and so fresh. 10 minutes walk to the Foresters arms and 1 1/2 mile over field into the village with a couple of pubs. The Deer farm is five minutes drive where there is a café/restaurant and shop plus pleasant walks. Litchfield is only half an hour away with a beautiful cathedral. There is a good McArthur Glen for shopping near Cannock. Shugborough Hall is a short distance by car and a great National Trust property. This is what a real CL is like, where you can enjoy views and you can pitch in any direction rather than a linear hardstanding strip, which is certainly our preference. Overall, a lovely tranquil, relaxing stay with tasty food locally. We definitely recommend it and we will be returning.

A good base for exploring Staffordshire

Woodmill Farm
We were unlucky that our stay coincided with a period of very heavy rain, making the ground very wet. Eric, who was a very helpful and friendly host, kindly towed us on to the field as there is a slight incline as you enter the field and we couldn't get up it! We enjoyed visits to Shugborough Hall and the National Memorial Arboretum and also sampled produce from the butchers and bakers- very handy. Hope to return in better weather!

Brilliant CL

Woodmill Farm
Like the previous reviewer, we have been caravanning for over 30 years and therefore have a lot of experience using CLs. I can only concur with them on just about everything they said in respect of this Woodmill Farm CL. It’s absolutely fantastic and made 5* by the owners Eric and Sue. Very welcoming, friendly and only too pleased to pass on their local knowledge regarding places to visit etc. The only thing I would challenge with the last review is the reference to the road noise. Don’t let this reference put you off, it is a personal thing, but we also don’t like noise, but it isn’t any sort of problem here.

One of the Best

Woodmill Farm
We have been caravanning 36 years and use mainly CL's. This CL is up there in our top 10. It is a large field, quite close to the A515 but there is little road noise (we are particularly sensitive to noise). The CL is in a lovely big field with plenty of EHU sockets so pitching away from others is very easy. There are no restrictions as to which way you site your van, which for us is important. The water, waste water etc.and rubbish disposal, facilities are clean, well looked after, and discreetly placed. The views are good. Sue and Eric are friendly and welcoming. The big plus for this CL is that, a couple of minutes walk from the site, within the farm complex, is a wonderful array of shops! Greengrocer, butcher, deli all with delicious goods on offer. In addition, there is the most wonderful bakery and patisserie. If you have been to France and on any given Sunday been in a village patisserie and swooned at the goods then you have an idea of what is on offer here. Not only do they sell delicious bread and cakes, they offer takeaway pizza and coffee! There is a small craft shop, offering artisan goods from the area as well as craft gin and Rum. The shops are open Tuesday to Saturday afternoon. My advice on the food front is only take with you food for your immediate needs and buy from the shops, on site you will not be disappointed. We spent a week at this lovely CL and visited Lichfield and the Cathedral - a must see, as well as the National Memorial Arboretum - a must, must see (what a wonderful place). There are also several stately homes and the brewery at Burton on Trent. There is a pub within walking distance, however, we can't comment on this as we didn't manage to fit a visit in. This is such a lovely, peaceful CL we wish we could give it more stars.

Excellent site, well maintained and convenient

Woodmill Farm
We only booked for two nights so that we could visit the National Arboretum which was a pity because we would have liked to stay longer and explore the surrounding countryside. The shops in various barns are excellent and very tempting. All the facilities on the site are clean and tidy and the pitches large and only slightly sloping so no problems. Definitely a site to return to thanks to Mr & Mrs Holsey.
