Why stay here ...

Situated in the quiet river valley of Woodbridge Brook, Southfield is a working family dairy farm where the cows can be seen milking and roaming the meadow grass. A large, gently sloping two acre mown site has been established here over 40 years for the enjoyment of Club members.

On foot, the historic market town of Malmesbury with its 13th Century Abbey and gardens, local shops, traditional free-houses and Waitrose supermarket is just half an hour stroll across the fields, running alongside the River Avon where fishing is also available. Otherwise a five minute walk up the lane from the site and into the village of Lea passing a play park for children, the church and the local pub with a great beer garden that serves food.

Exploring the surrounding area - why not visit Westonbirt Arboretum, the Cotswolds and Water Parks, Avebury and Stonehenge ancient circles or the City of Bath. All of these places are easily accessible by car.

Dogs and children are very welcome. Grass pitches and a hard standing for out of season use. Simple fixed rate of £12 per night includes 16 Amp hookup. Any questions? Please call Melanie. Feel free to text outside normal hours.

Disappointed

Would NOT class this site as a 5 star, more like 3 star.owner lady was very helpful on the phone but we never saw her even had to pay on leaving by putting money through letter box should have come to collect the fee from us ( good job we had change ) there were pot holes in the road which caused mud everywhere as it had rained , there was only one hard standing for our motorhome so no choice of where to park. A general tidy wouldnt go a miss especially around the facilities, long grass, weeds could be cut down , dustbins at a designated area would be better screened off. With more care and forthought would vastly improve the site. Although we didnt use the facilities they seemed very good and clean, there was a heated shower room, seperate toilet, and seperate washing machine. On a more poitive note the scenery is lovely , access is good apart from the pot holes, 10min drive to Malsbury.

Peaceful, good walking helpful host

We needed a site on the way to Wales and with the poor weather in mind we needed hard standing. Our host was so helpful (we forgot our electric cable!), and she lent us one. Our hard standing pitch was fine, but obviously being a farm it was very muddy! We would love to return in the summer, as the area is surrounded by glorious countryside and walks galore. Our schedule didn’t allow for a prolonged explore but as said, I would love to return and have a summer stay.

Booked for 2 nights,stayed for 5,!

What a lovely spot this is.We had several walks from the field ,one of which is a 30min stroll across fields into Malmesbury and others that take you further .Melanie came straight out to greet us when we arrived to suggest we parked on the hard standing backing into a shed as motorhome s are quite alot heavier then caravans,something we hadn’t thought about and can tend to have problems if the ground is wet ,a useful tip,thanks Melanie .We liked the area so much we stayed on for an extra 3 days.Went to the village pub on out last night and wish we’d gone sooner.We had a lovely meal and a delicious desert,probably a good job we didn’t go sooner!!! A very good value site.

Three good nights

A well priced, spacious and sunny CL with open views of the countryside and Malmesbury which is a pleasant cross-country walk away. Malmesbury is an attractive small town with plenty to see. We had good TV reception from our omni-direction aerial. The site has a gentle slope and is separated from a slightly larger site with statics and seasonal pitches by a hedge making it out of sight. The water point is shared with both sites as is a small facilities block which we didn’t use and includes a washing machine. The farm is on the edge of the small village of Lea which has a pub which we also didn’t use. There are pleasant short walks to be had from the site.
