Why stay here ...
Gate Farm is a mixed farm worked by the present family for more than 50 years. Alongside a tributary of the River Blythe SSSI it is a haven for wildlife, including 10-acres of wildflower meadows.
The Caravan site is securely located in the centre of the farm with exceptional views across the valley and surrounding farmland and offers enhanced fully serviced hardstanding pitches, including electric hook-up and free Wi-Fi. Freeview and 4G reception are good. As it is close to Birmingham Airport planes pass intermittently, but at other times the site is peaceful.
The main entrance to the farm is secured with automatic gates which are operated after 7pm by a supplied key fob.
The site is motorhome-friendly (maximum length 8.5 metres) and has ground-level disposal points. Dogs are welcome but, because there are farm animals here, dogs must be kept on a lead at all times. The adjacent footpath provides pleasant dog walks; please clean up after your pet and dispose in the bin provided.
Despite being surrounded by nature, Gate Farm is surprisingly close to many attractions which bring visitors to the Midlands:
- 15 minutes drive to the National Exhibition Centre, Birmingham Airport and Kenilworth,
