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.

This site is the reason why we bought a motorhome

Brookhouse Farm
Having had our motorhome for a few years we were not enjoying most of the normal larger sites that we had previously visited as they we a bit regimented. This site however was everything we used to dream of. Setting is perfect, easy to find, walking distance to a train station into Birmingham and Stratford, good pubs within walking distance, tranquil and with hosts that were very welcoming without being intrusive. We will certainly be back

Perfect Peace

Brookhouse Farm
Needed a stop on the way from Eurotunnel to Holyhead Ferry and wanted a quiet night's sleep. Delighted to find this CL as it gave us all we needed - good price and we got all the services we needed. 2 loos, 1 shower (£1 for 5 mins) and 1 hand basin plus a wash up sink. Bins and water waste if needed. It is a large area even if there were 5 vans (we were the only one!) and EHU and picnic benches for all. I will definitely keep it bookmarked. There are several pubs and food outlets close by if you don't fancy cooking. Kate was friendly when I rang to enquire and although we didn't meet it was clear that she was around if needed.

What a gem!

Brookhouse Farm
Enquired re Easter availability at rather the last minute only to find fully booked, but a couple of days later thrilled to get a phone call from Kate to say there had been a cancellation. Jumped at the chance to book! Arrived on a sunny Good Friday and driving down Tom Hill the site came into view….wow! A beautiful spacious mown grass field with very easy access through a padlocked gate, code supplied. Chose our pitch, hooked the motorhome up to electric and sat outside with a cuppa to take in the surroundings. Horses, sheep, birds, just wonderful. Second day walked into Tanworth in Arden which was not far, enjoyed a pint at The Bell overlooking the church and village Green. The following day walked through the fields to Woodend and sampled a pint at The Warwickshire Lad, again sat outside in glorious sunshine. Kate and Andrew are such a lovely welcoming couple, the site facilities are immaculate, although we always use our own, fresh eggs and sausages are available. Despite there being a railway line and the lane close by, the passing of trains and traffic was not at all intrusive and would readily return to this site. 10/10 to Kate and Andrew.

Newly opened CL with good facilities but significant access issues

Brookhouse Farm
I had read all the very positive reviews for this new site, which we then decided to use as an overnight stop en route from Dorset to Yorkshire. Admittedly conditions were far from ideal, following heavy rain which returned for the morning of our departure, on the last day of the site being open for the year. Much investment has been put into providing a new toilet and shower block, but there are still serious issues to be addressed over access to the site. Firstly there is an error in the directory stating the site is on the left, but it is on the right of the lane. The signed entrance has a combination lock, the code of which we were not given before arriving, and the off road space before the gate is barely long enough for most outfits, meaning that visitors may need to stop on the lane, holding up traffic, while the gate is opened. In our case, Kate met us at the farm entrance and guided us in that way. However, the direction of the track into and out of the CL is towards the farmyard, so it was necessary to turn the outfit round by reversing. It is possible to drive across the field to leave by the gate with the lock, but a notice in the CL suggests leaving by the track to the farmyard and turning round, as we had already done on arrival. The access really does need to be replanned so that either the lock is removed from the gate on the road and left open, or a new opening created into the CL at such an angle that caravans and motorhomes can drive in directly from the farm track. It would be a pity if all the investment in facilities is not matched by much improved access.

Superb Site

Brookhouse Farm
We stayed here for 5 nights in early August and this was our first stay here, we were visiting family in Birmingham and Wolverhampton and it was very convenient to get onto the motorway networks whilst enjoying the rural location. What a lovely welcoming couple Kate and Andrew are. There were some roadworks the day we were arriving and we had to take a slightly different route. We were a little lost but Kate came along and found us in her farm vehicle and escorted us to the site. It’s a lovely spacious field with super views with grazing sheep. We much prefer CL sites as we find them more peaceful and welcoming and this ticked all the boxes. We shall definitely return!
