Why stay here ...

My 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, and the Park and Ride to the south of Stratford is only three quarters of a mile along the Road. Public transport is within 300 yards of our entrance.

BRILLIANT SITE WARM WELCOME RECEIVED BY ALL

Monks Barn Farm
We have stayed on the site for many years and the standards we have come to expect are being improved upon. Upgrades to the toilet and shower facilities have been carried out to a high standard. As well as staying as a single carannner our recent rally was enjoyed by all with the ease of arrival and departure being greatly appreciated. We will be back very soon to once again enjoy the site and surroundings. Chris and Rob Branson Pieces of 8

Fantastic Weekend Get Away

Monks Barn Farm

Stopped over for 2 nights to try our new caravan out, this site was amazing and the owner is lovely and very helpful. It was so relaxing and the walk over the fields to Clifford chambers was lovely. The site is well kept and the toilet and showers facilities are excellent. Will definitely be staying again.

A top class CL

Monks Barn Farm
Stopped over for just 2 nights whilst having some work done on our motorhome by North Cotswold Motorhomes but will be back for sure when we want to visit Stratford on Avon. In general terms the site is level or close too, the necessary services are just a very short distance. Didn't use the toilet or shower as am self contained but judging by other reports they are equally excellent. It was easy to find, the satnav picked it up without difficulty and the entrance is easy and comfortable, no potholes or narrow tracks, with a proper surfaced driveway. The welcome was very friendly and the information available in the info shed is plentiful. Will be back for sure.

Field barn part of the site.

Monks Barn Farm
Fantastic for caravans and Motorhomes - this is the first CL site I’ve ever stopped on and it was beautiful. Very clean and well maintained grass and hard standing pitches. The actual cl part of the site was full but we were given a hard standing pitch on the field barn site directly adjacent , (pitch 17) which was slightly slopping; one chock under the front wheel was perfect to level us out. We walked into Stratford along field paths by the river’s s Stour and Avon plus about 50 yards of pavement. The walk took under an hour as a stroll. We didn’t use the toilets as we preferred to be self contained but they operated a ‘road sign’ stop and go sign to show if the facilities were in use it not- what a good idea as you could see at a glance if they were available. It’s a working farm but the farm yard is extremely clean, with a beautiful ancient oak beam thatched barn at its centre. My only criticisms ( and they are very minor) was that I couldn’t find the drive over waste disposal, and the signs on the road could have been a little better (but they were adequate) - all the documentation on arrival said ‘any questions just ask’ so I probably should have done but like I say very minor issues so I didn’t bother 😀 Overall, beautiful site that I would highly recommend!

second stay

Monks Barn Farm
we have stayed on this site before and wanted too again , lovely site bill is very helpful and kept us up to date during the lockdown period ( i had to book and rebook several times ) if you walk through the fields via the footpath it leads you to a lovely little pub , which was closed on this occasion because of the virus , but hopefully open now , there is a little traffic noise during the day but hardly any noise at night . hope to book again soon for november or next year .
