Just Brilliant

Fabulous site, even when the shower block and toilet isn't available. Beautiful views from all over the site, and so quiet and peaceful. Owners friendly and helpful - can't offer high enough praise!!

Beautiful outlook

Having just returned from our second stay at Slate Hall, we would definitely go back for a third visit, and more! It’s only 30mins from home for us so a great mini getaway for a weekend. The site is very easy to access with friendly and helpful owners. Once at the site you can just pitch up and walk for miles and miles. On the first visit we didn’t leave the site at all! The views from the site of the countryside are great with beautiful sunsets. There is so much space between each pitch it wasn’t at all cramped like some CL sites. Can’t comment on the toilet/showers as they were closed due to covid but this wasn’t a problem for us as we were self contained.

Just as a CL should be

This is just as a CL should be in our view - surrounded by farm land so very rural, very spacious, quiet (aircraft noise mentioned elsewhere not a problem) and well-run by a lovely lady. The site also benefits from a tap on each pitch, along with mains hook-up of course. The separate toilet and shower for the CL (we didn't use the latter) was clean and tidy when we were there. This site represents very good value for what it offers. We so enjoyed our stay there in August we will be returning in a couple of weeks' time.

HOSTS WHO GO THAT EXTRA MILE

In our experience, those who host CLs are often ‘involved’ and customer facing or, you are lucky if you see them at all. Whilst this many not necessarily reflect the quality of the site many reading this review will identify this scenario. We are pleased to report that our charming hosts at Slate Hall, Mike and Rosina, are in the first category. This is a very good site; spacious, mostly flat, away from the (relatively quiet) road, surrounded by mature trees, yet letting in the sunshine. Toilet and shower (latter not used by us) are well kept and everything else is as it should be. This was not our first stay here, which itself supports our view that we were more than satisfied with everything. We enjoy going to new places and it is not often we return to a site, especially not one some distance from our home in Devon. Returning to my opening comment; we had a problem (with our car) whilst here. On a day we were meeting up with old friends in Cambridge, with limited contingency time, we found our car battery flat (our own fault). Not being ‘vulnerable’ customers, or in a situation of any danger, we knew it would be a long wait for our breakdown service to reach us. No sooner had I explained to Rosina, she phoned Mike who was busy with other things out and about on the farm. With a response that would give credit to the emergency services he returned forthwith, located his portable charger, and promptly got us started. What an absolute pair of stars Mike and Rosina are. Not only was this way above and beyond their obligations; this was performed with a cheery attitude and a smile, and, very quickly. We were in good time to meet with our friends and the battery has been going well since. Thank you Mike and Rosina, we’ll see you again sometime!

Lovely weekend

Slate Hall is a lovely little CL site. The caravans are nicely spaced out on the field and there is EHU and water direct to the caravan. The views are to open countryside and the field is flat and mown. There is a shower and toilet that are both clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful. The village of Helions Bumpstead is picturesque but there is no local shop and the pub didn't look great. There are two pubs 3 miles away in Steeple Bumpstead that serve great food. We would definitely visit here again.
