Welcome to Kirby Farm Touring Caravan Site. We are a family run site with all the pleasures of being nestled on a traditional working arable farm. You will be warmly welcomed upon arrival and during your stay. Nothing will be too big an ask, so please do!

The sites rural location and centenary way footpath make it an ideal location for those who enjoy the outdoors. We are situated in the middle of two towns, Stratford-Upon-Avon, Warwickshire and Banbury, Oxfordshire. We are also close to Warwick and Leamington Spa which are steeped in culture and is well worth a visit. What are you waiting for? Come and see us soon, we are looking forward to meeting you!

We like to think that we live in a pretty nice area with lots of interesting things to do, but please feel free to check out the list below and see if anything takes your fancy!

  • Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, Mary Arden’s Farm and a mass of other attractions such as the RSC theatre, boating on the river Avon or just a stroll around our lovely culture steeped town.
  • Royal Leamington Spa, Banbury, Warwick (Castle) & Kenilworth (another castle) are also just a short drive away.
  • Heritage Motor Museum, National Herb Centre, a plethora of garden centres and lovely walks.

Everything we wanted

Just returned from 4 nights at Kirby Farm and all that we had read from earlier reviews was right. We were welcomed on site by Ros and Tom who were very friendly and accommodating . Ros said she would call back when we were set up and talk us through the welcome pack, which she did brilliantly. The weather was not as kind as we had hoped and torrential rain was a frequent visitor, but that did not pose any problems getting on or off site even though I do not have a 4x4. The site itself is spacious and the power and water supplies well positioned, so if you want isolation you can have it. Peace and tranquility what more could you want, we shall certainly return.

Wonderful Site.

Kirby Farm Caravan Site is all that we required to finish a two week jaunt of 1560 miles, including Scotland, the Lakes, East Yorkshire and Warwickshire. Tom & Ros are charming people and nothing was too much trouble for them. The farm is surrounded by beautiful countryside, and with Shakespear themes in Stratford upon Avon there was plenty for the theatre goers to see. For the more mechanically minded The British Motor Museum is at Gaydon is a must, as is Vulcan bomber XM655 at Wellesbourne Airfield usually open to visitors on most Saturdays. The nearby hamlet of Oxhill has a Pub/Restraunt called The Peacock which serves a nice pint of Doombar bitter. About a mile from the site is the village of Tysoe which has a well stocked village store. The site is approximately half a mile from the main road on a well maintained concrete drive with passing places. While we were at Kirby the weather was very damp, but the owners kindly offered us another night on site at their expense due to the possible difficulty in moving our rig. We declined this kind offer, so Thomas had us towed off-site to continue our journey home. I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Kirby Farm to other CL users. Thanks Tom & Ros.

Quiet and rural

5 pitches that are massive, separated by hedging (still growing at present). Each has access to an electric point, which can be used by more than one pitch, so you can choose the one your electric cable will reach. There are water taps on each pitch, with some having two. This means you can position yourself on a pitch and to allow you to have water 'on tap'. The siting of the taps/electric could mean you are off to one side of the pitch and closer to your neighbours, but the pitches are so large you are still not on top of each other. The pitches furthest from the drive are raised slightly higher, giving more views, though all the pitches have a pleasant outlook.  Nearly all the pitches are flat, or require very little chocking.  The field gets the sun all day.  Bin and recycling available, plus the waste disposal was easy to use, with a hose for washing off/out your cassette. Access to the site is wide and easy to swing into or out of. Site is so quiet you could hear the bees buzzing in the flowers! Nice welcome to the site, and an information leaflet is given with details on local places to visit/eat at. The Wi-Fi struggles to reach the end pitches from inside your caravan. We could only pick it up on one device. O2 had H+ but EE 4g. Lots of National Trust properties within an hour, plus many other attractions. Recommend coming in from the A422 and following the instructions on the site website. Overall a really nice site, that we will visit again.

4 nights of bliss

We have just enjoyed 4 nights at this lovely CL,sited at the far end of the large field away from the road with our own tap and electric.Grass was mown short and picked up just after our arrival. Plenty of birds to watch and listen to including a pair of pheasants,saw a hare early each morning in the next field. Handy for Stratford upon Avon,Banbury,and Shipston on Stour (fish & chips). Visited Charlecote Park and Upton House while there. Thankyou Carol for the welcome, hopefully we will return soon.B & B

The perfect CL

Enjoyed a weekend on this perfect CL. A large field means everybody has plenty of space. With water taps by each pitch we were able to 'plumb in' and avoid the chore of fetching water. This is a beautiful area and we enjoyed cycling on the miles of quiet roads and Sustrans routes in the area. With peace and quiet and lovely views we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay at Kirby Farm and would highly recommend.
