I’m amazed there aren’t more great reviews

We only stayed for two nights but couldn’t have been made more welcome by Bernard and Peggy. A charming couple with lots of fabulous tales to tell about the local area with Bernard living nearby since before the Second World War. The site is lovely and set in 7 acres. The camping area is plenty big enough for a CL and you have the whole area to wander about in. Reading the reviews I was quite surprised that there wasn’t anything particularly recent so I thought I’d correct that. I know this little gem gets booked out with returning guests and it deserves to - we’ll definitely becoming again as it’s a lovely place to just hang out and enjoy Bernard’s stories.

Lovely but...

This site is set in lovely surroundings but there is NOT 7 acres available for caravans. There are two parts which are not connected for vehicles. The lower part is about 2 acres and the upper part, near the house, is less than one acre. There is one EHU bollard which the owner runs an extension lead from - if this is used by more than one outfit it trips (I suggest this is what happen in a previous review). 10 amp is adequate (just!) for one outfit but not enough to share! We won't be back!

Response from the Club

Many thanks for your review. The issue with Electric Hook Up occurred as it was the owners own Electric Hook Up that you connected to that the site owners uses for maintenance on the site and not the Electric Hook Up designated for guests. Our CL team have spoken to the owner about this and as a result of the confusion caused by this, the owner has now removed their hook up from the site so that it can’t be used by any member by mistake. We sincerely apologise for the confusion and any issues that have occurred because of this during your stay. Please be assured that all hook ups on the CL Site for guests are tested by an electrician and if you have any concerns the CL owner is always more than happy to help.

Real little gem

After a busy day and a fair amount of travelling we arrived at a beautiful oasis of peace and tranquility. We had a lovely welcome from the owners who showed us where everything was and told us what we could find in the area. The site itself is in the owners huge and beautiful garden, full of trees and lovely plants. It was the perfect end to a great weekend and we will certainly return.

Very peaceful site

Lovely surroundings as mentioned in previous reviews, close to Waverley Abbey ruins and town of Farnham, must be wonderful when Rhododendrons in bloom. Saw plenty of wild life including a shy deer that stood and stared at us we we stood watching it. Hook up worked as it's supposed to. Well worth the visit

Stunning site

We have just spent a very happy weekend at Abbot's Shingle. The location is beautiful, surrounded by tall pine trees and splendid rhododendrons. Bernard and Peggy made us very welcome. Bernard drew us a map to follow on Saturday, including several local attractions, thereby ensuring that we made the most out of our short stay - it was much appreciated. We certainly hope to visit again.
