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.

All winter pitches are hardstanding and have electric hook ups.

Good little site let down by toilets and showers

Monks Barn Farm
Ideal location close to Stratford, a little bit of daytime road noise but not excessive.Pitches a good size and level,friendly helpful owner but let down by the toilet and shower facilities. There was no running hot water in the toilet or shower wash basins when we visited,the shower ran hot and cold randomly with poor water pressure and cleaning not the best( especially around the window area) Overall,I think a little overpriced compared to other sites we have visited.

Not quite the experience of others

Monks Barn Farm
Booked the site to attend the Caravan and Motorhome Show well in advance. All comms were great - even when we had to delay our arrival by 24 hours due to the motorhome having a flat battery! But the eather was so bad that maybe was a blessing in disguise. Arrival procedure similar to other CL sites we have been to - you just phone a number an they tell you where to park. The rest is up to you to sort out. The toilets, whilst clean and nice fresh tiles was freezing! A radiator barely 2 foot high to heat a barn room 20ft sq with an open barn door is never going to work. No-where to hand your clothes and be warned - you need 20p coins to feed the shower - something we didn't know and should really be flagged up prior to arrival please. Final point - Karen did keep our price at the 2021 rate (£17) but there was a notice in the bathroom stating that due to energy prices increasing the rate for 2022 will be £25. That's an increase of 47%. So that is suggesting that ALL the costs of running a CL are electricity and electricity alone? I do hope this trend isn't repeated elsewhere. I'm sure the site is a great location for exploring and walking but we just used it as a base prior to attending the show so can't comment on that side of things.

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.
