Very poor

We have been caravanning for 16 years and 90% of the time stay on CLs. This is the first time we have actually felt the need to leave a site before our due departure day. We booked in for 4 nights and left after the first night and found another site 2 miles away! The farmer is very friendly so feel bad about giving a poor review but felt I needed to warn other members about this site. Upon arrival the first impression is not good, long grass and a large pile of gravel in the corner. 2 other vans appear to be permanent in the cl field and the adjoining field had numerous vans that looked like they have been dumped but are also being occupied. The view over fields could be nice but is blighted by these permanent vans. I don't often post reviews but feel other members need to be made aware of this site, I cannot recommend this site at all and was so keen to move on after 1 night.

Site with potential

We had planned to stay for the weekend in light of an optimistic weather forecast. With plans for Thursday and Friday morning, we decided to get in early and arrived on Wednesday evening. We arrived around 6pm and were soon greeted by the CL owner. We were directed to the site which is via a 90 degree bend onto an access track not much wider than the car and caravan. This was only just possible for me with our 26ft van. May be easier for smaller caravans but does require a couple of pairs of eyes to watch your corners. This corner does also feature a large overhanging tree which does rub and make a very unappealing sound as it brushes down the side of your van! Once we passed the corner the rest of the access is relatively simple, through the farmyard and out to the CL field. The owner directed us to the field and allowed us to pick our pitch. We parked along the back fence and had views across the farm and the farm reaching countryside. This does lead us onto the downsides of this site. There are two clear downsides to this site which impact heavily on its appeal. Firstly the access is very difficult and not for the faint hearted. The second issue is the range of other units which were pitched across the site. When we arrived there was three caravans on the CL field. Two of these were occupied by single males who were rarely seen, with the third being left unoccupied until it was towed to the other side of the farm. Other units in various conditions did blight the land scape with these being located in the sheep field with people coming and going at regular intervals. A van was also parked in the adjoining field access, connected to the power supply in the CL. The presence of these other units did make us feel uncomfortable at times. We had planned to stay on until early evening on Sunday, but found ourselves leaving early due to the feeling of discomfort. The weekend was improved by the presence of another couple who arrived for the weekend and pitched along side. Speaking with them, we both seemed to have the same feelings! We left via the back entrance to the farm which is much for suitable for caravanners, especially those with larger vans! Overall, this site has great potential and ticks a lot of boxes. Great price, lovely views and the peace and tranquillity that you want. It is however let down by poor access arrangements and the uncomfortable feeling that comes from the other units spread across the farm. This site would be highly recommended if it wasn't for the above mentioned issues.

not very sure

When we arrived, it was rather a tight turn into the farm entrance. Its a very narrow turning and the drive is narrow with over hanging trees, not so good for the caravan roof. after driving through the farmyard, we were directed into the field for members. Again a bit tight but we were in. We could park more or less where we wanted and we chose to have our backs to the lane behind the farm. It is a very peaceful place, lovely views across the Warwickshire country side. This was however spoiled for us and another younger couple next to us. In the field were two other vans that were occupied permanently. there was a third but this was moved on Friday evening and placed in another field! At the top of the field but on the other side of the fence, a man was living in a van, hooked up to electricity in the field, several other vans were also hooked up from another field about 500 yrds away.Then we realised there were more vans in that field further over and the residents of this field were not very quiet when arriving or leaving. There were also a number of caravans that we thought were abandoned behind the sheds, only to find they too were occupied. It didn't make us feel comfortable at all. We are not snobs or have a fancy van or car, but it wasn't as we expected. When we left, we chose to leave by the back entrance road as it seemed safer. While getting ready to do this, new arrivals came and plugged in where the red van was connected. This was obviously unacceptable for the gent as he packed up and drove down the lane, to join the other lodgers in the other field!!! Most peculiar. For a cl site it is remote and quiet, just basic facilities but not for us. I don't feel I can recommend it at all, sorry

Lovely site

we stayed at Mavern Hall farm for a very long weekend, the site is very easy to find, and the pitches are tucked away behind the farm, over looking the fields and country side, it was a flat pitch, the grass had been mown, the owner was very helpful, plenty of hook up points round the edge of the field. access to public footpath adjactent to the camping field, there is a nice waterside pub about 200yards away, and loads of canal side walks really handy. Free range eggs are sold at a small farm shop on site. A very enjoyable weekend will hope to visit this site again.

A rude awakening...

This site is an uneven farm field. Watch where you walk (farm dogs...). Felt a bit of a nuisance rather than a guest when I went to pay. Were shaken from our Sunday slumbers by very loud and continuous farm machinery a few feet the other side of the hedge at 7.45am! Peace and tranquillity totally shattered!
