Why stay here ...

April 2024 wet weather - all April stays booked will be for hard standing pitches until weather improves.

Our CL is on a small working farm and accessed by a private tarmac road. It offers visitors beautiful views across the river meadows to the Ilmington Hills and all the pleasures of the countryside. It is within easy reach of Stratford, Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Warwick and the Cotswolds and numerous National Trust properties and Historical Sites and Gardens. Adults/Children/Pets are all welcome. The pitches are level mown grass with electrical hook-ups and plenty of space for awnings. Some hard standings are available.

There is a delightful walk from the Site taking the visitor along the banks of the River Stour and into the village of Clifford Chambers and for the more energetic there are numerous country walks. Prior to the Reformation, Clifford Chambers supported a community of Benedictine Monks and this has given rise to the name of our property. A medieval timber-framed thatched barn, is still a feature of our farm today.

Local shops, and restaurants, all within easy reach. Public transport is within 300 yards of our entrance.

All winter pitches are hardstanding and have electric hook ups.

Extremely Rude Host

Monks Barn Farm
Firstly I have been a camper for over 40 years and this is my first bad review. It was my partner's Birthday and we were looking forward to our weekend away. I made a call in the early afternoon to let Karen know that we would be late arriving that evening and asked her if it was ok, yes no problem she replied just call me when you arrive as you may run into traffic which is exactly what we did and we were around 45 minutes late - it was half past 9 when we arrived. My partner jumped out of the vehicle to say sorry we were late and was immediately cut off and shushed and told to be quiet - my partner is gently spoken. Not hearing this I then jumped out of the vehicle where I also started to say sorry we were a bit late and was also cut off - be quite she said very abruptly to me - people have been in bed a long long time now - looking at the other vans I noticed all there lights were still on and could here tvs playing ? This is the pitch she snarled and make sure your quite - I felt like a scolded toddler - we don't normally accept late arrivals she snapped again ? park here and don't make any noise - oh and you won't be needing electricity tonight will you, not waiting for an answer she then stormed off. We had no idea where the water or showers and toilets were, but mainly we were left stunned in disbelief at the vile way we had just been spoken too - especially when it was all pre arranged - not that you would talk to anyone the way she did to us anyway - it was absolutely disgraceful. We decided that instead of staying the 3 nights planned that the next morning we would move to a more friendly campsite. I felt terrible as it was my partner's birthday and supposed to be a treat but this disgusting woman had wrecked it. On our return home we looked at other reviews where we found out that other people had also been treat badly on Tripadvisor. So I strongly recommend you steer well clear of this campsite - while it would appear that sometimes Karen can be polite it is also evident that she can be a vile person who could potentially ruin your holiday as she did ours. I will be speaking with the caravan club directly about this site as I would hate for others to experience what we did - she is not worthy of membership.

Peaceful Stay

Monks Barn Farm
Stayed for a couple of nights over Easter Weekend. Received a friendly welcome from the host. The path to the village was inaccessible due to the heavy rain recently, however we walked to Stratford both days. The path is directly alongside the main road initially and some of the traffic was travelling quite fast but it wasn't overly busy. Site was very peaceful, facilities were adequate and clean. The egg/cake shed was a nice addition. Would definitely stay again when next in the area.

Great site with easy access to centre of Stratford

Monks Barn Farm
Great caravan site with easy access to Stratford upon Avon by bus, better than paying car park fees. Owners very nice and very helpful. Site well laid out with easy access to all needs and has small shower / WC block, all very clean. Reading other reviews, Need to say that the site fees and paying for electricity is no different than for many CL sites, we have had two short breaks here over the last 14 days and will definitely be using next year. Good restaurants and takeaways located a short distance away. A must try if you like Indian was Aladdins near Tiddington. Plenty of places to visit in the area and a short distance away. Plenty of good local walks a bit muddy when we were there but it was last week

Far too expensive

Monks Barn Farm
Firstly let me say, this is a very nice CL, great shower provided at 50p and 2 toilets available, all kept very clean and tidy. Lovely location so close to Stratford on Avon and great walks from the site through to Clifford Chambers. My only issue is the cost, £23 plus electricity card of £4 per night. During 2021 the nightly charge was £15 including electricity, I realise we are all in the middle of a cost of living crisis but this price hike is too much. After 35 years of visiting this lovely CL, I’m sad to say we won’t be back.

Beautiful little site

Monks Barn Farm
We had a warm welcome and booking in was easy. Shower facilities were kept beautifully clean throughout our stay. Pleasant walk by public footpath into local village . From where numerous bus routes into town . Pub In the village New Inn serving food was an extra. Everything here you could need is provided and we will definitely return . Well done to Karen and partner. Keep up the good work. One of the best we have stayed on.
