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.

Wonderful site with vrythin we need

Kirby Farm Caravan Site
We have just had a few weeks stay at Kirby Farm Caravan Site. It’s probably one of the best sites we have ever stayed it. There is plenty of room for 5 caravans with small strips of bushes breaking up the overall expanse of the site. There are plenty of EHU's and enough fresh water taps to allow one per pitch. The waste area (normal rubbish, recycling and chemical toilet waste point) is well shielded and kept very clean - there is even a hand gel dispenser on the outside to cleanse your hands when you have finished you task. There is even a dog waste bin near the waste point. It is a working farm so you must accept some noise as the staff go about their work, but it didn't affect our stay there. There are plenty of dog walks around the farm and dedicated (and mowed) walks from the site. There is a rally field opposite the CL so you may be joined by some other caravanners during your stay. The owners (Ros and Thomas) are very friendly and keep the site clean with the grass being mowed regularly - they even collect the grass cuttings so no mess in your caravan. To keep in touch, there is Wi-Fi across the site (included in your site fees) but signal strength will vary depending on your distance from the mast. Ros meets new arrivals and gives you an information sheet and advice about what to see in the area. This is a site we will definitely be returning to again, and again.

Lovely Site - But Be Aware

Kirby Farm Caravan Site
We stayed at this site for three nights last week. We received a warm welcome. The site is immaculately mowed and grass clippings collected where the vans are sited. Plenty of water taps and numerous EHU hookups, each with four hook-ups?? The waste disposal and recycling area fenced and hand sanitiser supplied. There were only two of us on site, so made it very pleasant. They do have a separate Rally field adjacent, again with numerous water taps and EHU hook-ups. The site owner told us they use the Rally field as an overflow to the CL. He also told us he was expecting six to eight vans this weekend. Between the two fields there is plenty of room, but if you’re expecting to stay in a five van CL, you may be disappointed on how many people they allow to stay. We enjoyed our stay, but we do like our peace and quiet, but a five van CL means five vans.

just what the doctor ordered

Kirby Farm Caravan Site
Its been nearly 2 years since i last went out with the Caravan but alas this time im on my own as ive recently lost my lovely Wife in late December2020,,ive just arrived on site with my Daughter her Husband and teenage son in both our Caravans, hoping to find some forward thinking to my future on my own ,even though i have a lovely supportive family behind me The site owner Roz came to us just as we arrived,greeted us so kindly and pleasantly it was a very warm welcome, we chose a lovely spot for the 2 vans by the large pond by a couple of willow trees,this was the perfect place to relax and reflect on what i had recently lost,and i know my Wife would have really adored this site, I was able to remember all the good times of previous touring holidays that my Wife and I had ,So thanks to the owners of the site and the surroundings,I have come to appreciate what we have all around us and the future will get better ,I can only give full marks for this experience of such a peaceful site, very minimum farm noise practically none,wonderfull area and perfect owners, Just have a visit you wont be dissapointed and Thanks again to Roz & Thomas... Yours Sincerely Eric ...

Charming CL, Owners and Location

Kirby Farm Caravan Site
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!

Kirby Farm Caravan Site
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
