Charming CL, Owners and Location

We have been meaning to visit this CL for a while. For one reason or another it never happened, until this weekend. Booking (phone and e mail) was straight forward. Directions in the book were good except in Oxhill you turn left, rather than go left. Don't worry if you overshoot as just outside the village there is a lay by you can U turn through or turn down Green Lane and you skip going through the village. Lovely long private drive with passing places leads you to the well signed CL. We were the fifth of five but there isn't a duff pitch on this huge CL. Plenty of EHU points and water taps around the edge of this expansive CL. It is meticulously maintained. Standard facilities for rubbish, recycling and elsan. Grey water goes in to the hedge. WiFi is brilliant. We arrived late evening and set up. The charming owner visited us in the morning to confirm all was in order and gave us an information pack including the WiFi password, towns and locations of interest and a map of the farm including public footpaths and walks in their bio-diverse planting areas. The locale is full of footpaths (footpaths running through the farm are well maintained and signed) from which the local villages can be visited. The area is stunning and we felt most welcome, despite the covid precautions. Tysoe has a wonderful village shop and a Post Office. Many pubs offer fayre from a pun lunch to a gourmet dinner. It is adult only but as the ditch which runs around one side of the CL is 6' dep this is sensible, well behaved dogs are allowed. This is a real, working farm and farm machinery is around a lot of the day but it isn't intrusive in the least and we were there during harvest time. This is one of those CLs that we will return to, just sorry it isn't open all year round!

Tranqulity!

August 2020 - a week stay. Huge site, occupants well spaced, alternative locations all with good water stand pipe and electric hook up. Virtually flat field, well mown, softish soil, with harder limestone about 6 inches down - ideal for coach bolts for awning fixing. Very helpful owners who appeared quickly and even supplied some eggs. Wonderful quiet site, 1 mile from nearest road, easy to find, nearby fields of wild flowers, excellent quite flat roads nearby for cycling, walking available. Certainly a site with no issues at all and one that we will be returning to - near the top of our list of CL's.and a bargain at this rate. The first 4 days at 35c then storms which quickly drained away - no chance of getting bogged down here! A puzzling lack of bird wild life but a perfect retreat for humans. Very well done Ros and Thomas! Brian

One of the best

My wife and I stayed at Kirby Farm CL from for a week from 25 July 2020. It was nothing less than delightful. The owners were away for a short break when we arrived, but the grass was being cut and the very chatty gent driving the mower immediately came to see if we needed any help, then went off to inform the owners Mum that we had arrived. She was shortly with us with a very helpful hand out about the site and area and like everyone we met related to the site extremely pleasant and helpful. The Cl is set in a large field, with closely cut grass and a choice of screened pitches mainly with EHU and water tap. Gray water can be dropped into the ditch. Toilet emptying and rubbish are neatly sited. in a pathed and fenced enclosure. The area is very pleasant with some lovely villages to explore and major tourist spots like Stratford and Evesham within easy reach. We will definitely be back.

Straight into my top ten list of sites!

We have just returned from a couple of nights stay at Kirby Farm and thought we should write a little review of this lovely CL. Kirby Farm has easy access along a concrete road 500 or so metres long. It is fairly narrow but has plenty of passing places. Being a busy working farm there is some traffic about both early morning and around tea time. Not much between times. The camping ground is a large gently sloping grass field surrounded by hedges and a stream. There is also an unfenced pond so parents of young children should be aware (& owners of water loving Labradors such as ours). Although visiting after a lengthy period of wet weather we were still able to drive across the field and site our caravan without difficulty. There are no designated pitches and were told when we booked to pick anywhere in the field near a suitable EHU. There are plenty of water taps. A chemical WC waste disposal point and dustbins screened off by panel fencing and a dog poo bin also nearby. As the camping field is so big, what traffic there was had no impact on us at all. The site and farm in general is immaculate. The grass is obviously mown frequently. We were given a printed info. pack from the farm office which listed various places to visit along with details of the local pub and village shop. There was also a map of the farm with footpaths marked. Kirby Farm is a great base for visiting the Cotwolds area being quite close to Shipton on Stour, Morerton in Marsh and Stow on the Wold, Stratford upon Avon etc. Another place well worth a visit is the Arboretum at Batsford (just outside Moreton in Marsh). We will certainly be visiting again (after our problem our water heater is either fixed or replaced) because this CL is well worth it. As I mentioned in the title, Kirby farm has gone into my top ten of sites to stay on!

A perfect CL

Exactly as described! A spacious, well kept CL with lovely views and plenty of room to spread out. Excellent location and would definitely recommend the British Motor Museum for petrol heads and The Chequers pub at Ettington for excellent quality food. Unfortunately did not get time to visit The Peacock Inn but it did look nice from the outside! Ideally placed for our visit the Caravan Show at NEC, only an hour away! Will definitely return next summer!
