Why stay here ...

After what has been a steep learning curve, we are excited to welcome you to our CL site located on our working farm in Tanworth in Arden. The site is a 1.5 acre field with picnic benches, electric hookups, full sized sink, toilet and shower facilities and also a fire pit available to hire. We are in the enviable position of being in one of the most picturesque villages in Warwickshire yet only 10 minutes away from junctions 3 & 4 of the M42, so ideal if you need to be near the NEC. We are also within walking distance, through the fields, to one train station and a 3 minute drive to another (both have free parking). The trains go every hour directly into Stratford upon Avon, which obviously has a whole host of attractions to keep people entertained, and Birmingham city centre, where you are pretty much dropped at the door of the Bull Ring shopping centre.

There are National Trust properties on the doorstep and historic Warwick and its castle a 30 minute drive away. There are 2 pubs, again in walking distance, both serving delicious food & drinks. The Bell is situated in the heart of the village, on the village green and is overlooked by the impressive St Mary Magdalene church which dates mainly to the medieval period and contains stunning stained glass windows. It is also the final resting place of famous singer songwriter, Nick Drake, and British Grand Prix motorcycle road racer, Mike Hailwood. Should you need provisions, there is a good sized Co-op 5 minutes away and most major supermarkets are within a 10 minute drive as is a Calor gas provider. Broad Lane Leisure who supply all types of caravan, motorhome and awning accessories are 9 miles away.

We are also delighted to be able to offer you the opportunity to purchase our own free range eggs and sausages & bacon from our Gloucester Old Spot pigs, a perfect way to start the day!

Dogs are welcome on site but as we are a working farm request that they are kept on a lead amongst the livestock. There are plenty of footpaths locally and you are able to access some straight from the farm. Depending on work load we are also able to offer farm tours and there are plenty of lambs being born during the Easter holidays.

Relaxed and welcoming site

Just had a lovely weekend on this site. Kate and Andrew are absolutely brilliant - so welcoming and helpful. At this time of year the lambs are romping in adjacent fields and the birds are indeed in fine song. Services block is clean and airy and well maintained. No problem levelling the van. Lovely village not far away (0.6 of a mile or about an 11 minute walk) with a pub and an attractive village green by the church - opening times for the pub are helpfully included in the array of information about local amenities in the services block. We had such a great time, we've booked to go again and look forward to our next visit. Thanks Kate and Andrew, what a lovely CL site you have created.

A delightful recent addition to the local CL network

This is a delightful recent additional CL that is very welcome in the area. The site field is lovely and peaceful, constantly surrounded by the most glorious birdsong, with the odd passing rural train now and then for extra entertainment as less fortunate commuters have to go about their daily business. All 3 of the higher positioned pitches will require simple levelling ramps……but no great hardship anywhere. The newly built clean, bright and airy toilet and services block is laid out sensibly to avoid any high lifting of heavy containers and works well, with 2 x unisex loos and a shower for those who may need them. The owners; Kate and Andrew who run the site, are a lovely couple and are willing to put that bit of extra effort in to make sure that you enjoy your stay, and the eggs and sausages are particularly recommended! We have stayed a couple of times now and we know that this will be a regular stop for us in the future.

Excellent site to chill out

As near perfection as you could wish for! The booking was simple, with deposit & payment by BACS transfer if preferred. The directions were easy to follow and to spot the CL sign. Don't try to come via the village as the road is narrow with street parking so no room to manoevre a caravan. The field was fairly level and plenty of space to choose your level pitch within reach of the new style electric points. Picnic tables are randomly sited for your use if required. The new toilet/ shower(pay meter) facilities are beautifully clean, and sink has hot water and paper towels. Usual chemical emptying point and drain for grey water are to one side of the building The outlook is over a field used by their 3 horses, and beyond is the local 3-carriage train which is non-intrusive and reminded us of the Railway Children of the New Forest. Kate made us feel very welcome and took time to talk with everyone on the site, making sure that we had all everything necessary to set up and enjoy our stay. We apprciated all the planning and hard work Kate and Andrew have put in to create a lovely relaxing CL and we look forward to returning to do more of the many local walks in the area.

We had the pleasure of staying here this weekend. On arrival we was welcomed by Andrew and his lovley sheep dog who showed us to our pitch. After we had set up and our friends had also arrived and set up we met Kate who loves to chat. This is a new site and has a spotless shower and toilet block with information of local amenities. You can buy there very own pork sausages and free range eggs and this i recommend as there yummy. Lovley place lots to offer lots of pubs and restaurants near by thanks Andrew & Kate for a pleasant stay till next tim x
