Booked a last min 2 night break to Blythe waters. Mrs C booked us in and when we arrived she was expecting us and gave us the key code for the gate and explained where everything is etc. nice level pitch over looking a lawn and the lakes. Walk out of the site and turn left, it’s a fairly busy road but after about 5 mins you can join the canal going left down to a few pubs and also Knowle town which has lots of lovely pubs and coffee shops. We had tea and cake in Violas which was lovely. The next day we cycled around and ended up in Hampton in Arden where a lovely sandwich shop offering freshly made lunch time sandwiches, sandwiches @ no. 6, lovely cafe! The site is fairly peaceful, the geese are noisy tho! A few planes flying over but not very often. It’s a nice country site, clean and well maintained. Well worth a visit!
From the moment we arrived to the time we left, this site was an absolute gem. Plenty of good walks, along the Grand Union Canal, through countryside or into town. Day fishing also available at extra cost. During the fishing times, you do need to walk the dog off site, but there are a couple of footpaths just along the road. The traffic can be quite fast, but the verges are cut so safe to walk on. If you turn left out of site, the canal is about 10 minutes away, or go right and you can cut across the fields about 5 minutes away. No problem parking our 8m motorhome! It's on our list to return to. Check opening hours, but once in you have a code to enter, so free to come and go...
Stayed two nights in Sept have twin axle caravan pulled by seven seater kia. Found 3 /4 and five pitch impossible to manouver caravan into position because of roped off grass area... unless you have motor mover. 1 and 2 ok but would not return by choice because of this The plus iof site is 10.30 arrival and depart . Easy to find as just off motorway. It is peacefu and .near canal walk.
We visited Blythe Waters for 4 nights in May. We wanted somewhere mid way between Devon and Yorkshire to meet with friends, and this fitted the bill perfectly. We were a bit hesitant after reading some of the reviews, as we both have dogs, but we really needn't have worried at all. We were asked to arrive before 4.30 - that was no problem. We were met by the warden who was very friendly, explaining the usual things - water, electric etc, and also where dogs were allowed to be walked between certain hours as this was primarily a fishing centre - all perfectly reasonable we thought. The site is beautiful, we watched herons, geese with goslings, swans (one that liked to be hand fed!). Heated toilets and showers were a bonus! Gail - the warden - was extremely helpful. She gave the four of us and both dogs a lift to the local pub where we spent a pleasant hour then walked back along the canal! She purchased charcoal for the BBQ on our behalf so we didn't have to carry it back with us, and she phoned for a taxi from a company she knew for us the following day. OK - she likes to call a spade a spade, but we're from Yorkshire, and we like that!! We will definately be returning!
I rang on an evening to book and left a message as no answer. The following morning I had a missed call and voicemail. I went to retrieve my voicemail but pressed the number to dial instead. I immediately cancelled it to hear the voicemail first and before I had time to access it the phone rang. It was the site manager telling me if I'm going to ring then I should let it ring long enough to be answered! - very rude and hostile. I then enquired about availability and was told I would have to be there for 3.30 pm. Due to her attitude and very aggressive manner I told her I wouldn't be there for 3.30 pm so it was no good for me. It sounded like she was running a concentration camp. If this was the last CL on earth I wouldn't use it and I've only uttered a dozen words with the woman over the phone. I can't believe people actually go back there? I will be putting a big black cross over this one in my CL book.
