As good as I remember

We use CL's all the time and get around the network. It has been 5 years since we have been the Bayardo Farm, but everything is familiar. The site is what I'd call basic with electric, but the lawn is cut and is well maintained. We have been on 4 pitches over the years and are yet to get a TV reception, but with the surroundings that's probably a bonus. The Bull's have now put in WiFi and all though it dropped out twice in the 9 days we were there, simply going and asking for it being reset was made very easy. This rectified the problem and we were able to watch the only programme we wanted on iPlayer instead. There are many options for walking from the site, and West Woods are a must. We go late Easter for the bluebells, but maybe more guaranteed last week in April or Mayday week-end. This year their earliness the were probably caught the best at Easter. Other options are exploring the Downs, Avebury monuments and Marlborough is a lovely little town. We saw lots of different wildlife during our visit of the area, so just keep your eyes and ears open. The only disappointment (for the Bulls), was the lack of visitors the week before Easter. We are finding this more with CL's, maybe they are just going pout of fashion. We prefer is quiet so not a problem our side. This is a great value option, try it for yourselves. This is simply one of my favorite locations.

Very relaxing and friendly site, perfect for dogs and walkers.

Just spent 5 days at this lovely site which will be added to our list of favourites. Access was easy with spacious pitches and plenty of room to manoeuvre with enough space to pitch whichever way you prefer, the field slopes slightly so you might need levelling blocks but this was not a problem for us. The owners were very friendly and welcoming and quite relaxed about how you pitched, we have 5 dogs and they were happy for us to put a windbreak fence around our caravan. The site is perfect for dogs, no livestock on the farm and miles of wonderful, off lead walking directly from the site. Opposite the site is West Wood with lots of paths and trails to explore, if you walk through the woods to the other side there is are 2 pubs to choose from. Walking in the other direction across the farm eventually brings you onto the Marlborough Downs, great paths and lovely views, you can walk to Pewsey which is on the Kennet and Avon Canal or to Wootton Rivers a pretty village with a very nice pub the Royal Oak. Marlborough and Devizes are both really nice towns to visit without having to travel too far. We were on pitch 2 and did manage to get a TV signal, occasional slight interference but nothing to spoil our viewing. There is no phone signal however and at the time of our visit no Wifi either, although the owners assured us they would be providing WiFi in the near future and if they do then will will definitely return.

A classic CL in an archaeological haven.

A classic CL … located on a working arable farm, this hassle-free large grass site has south facing views across fields. A levelling block needed if pitching sideways. Double gated wide entrance. While the access road is narrow in parts, there are passing places. Water and waste disposal located at bottom of the gently sloping field. Eggs available. No probs with electrics. Be aware that TV and mobile phone signals are non existent or poor throughout the area. Plenty to do from this CL with walks from the site, (incl. close encounters with badgers, owls and hares), narrowboat trips on Kennet and Avon canal, Savernake Forest trails, Ridgeway Walk and lots of history and archaeology. Good museum in Devizes. Walk 'the Avenue' into Avebury to see the Ring and NT Manor House, and from Silbury to the West Kennet Long Barrow. Small market in Marlborough. Tom was a helpful host and knowledgeable on local archaeology.
