Pleasant Site

Found the site easily, however, would have been helpful if the CL sign was more obvious as we initially passed it & had to turn round! Nobody around to give us any advice so we parked where we thought we should in between two other caravans. View is amazing. Water tap easily accessible, lots of recycing & rubbish bins, and sanitary disposal accessible with water hose for flushing out. We stayed a week and the grass was not mown during that time although it was long in places. This did not bother us. Nobody came to see us and on leaving we put our money in a plastic bag and handed it to one of the girls, we assumed, was something to do with the farm. Is a very reasonable rate and the site suited us very well. Easy access to lots of good walking and to places of interest in the area. Two pubs in the village and a small Co-op, which is well stocked, as well as another shop/post office. Would return, but might try somewhere else when visiting Wiltshire.

A real gem of a site, no problems now!

The previous reviews seem very critical in the light of the current situation. There is a drinking water stand in the centre of the site and the waste disposal has a good lid with its own water supply. The grass is not unreasonably long, a bit whispy, but this is due to the very dry weather we have had recently. Other facilities for rubbish disposal are in the lower corner of the site. Generally a well kept site and friendly family owners.

Beautiful views and peace. Little unkept..

I have used this site previously and agree with the recent reviews. Mrs Hale is delightful and the site has stunning views. It is looking a little tired. The grass had not been cut for a while. There is only one water point for clean water and for rinsing out toilet cassette. A couple of the vans seem to have been their for ever.. with permanent residents, which are very tatty... A little bit of TLC i am sure will help, it was harvest so the farm yard was busy, as to be expected

A real let down

We have to agree with the last reviewer. We used to stay here as a favorite place about 6 years ago. We came back in March after a break from caravanning and got a huge shock. The views were just as lovely but it was so run down. The waste disposal was totally inadequate and no way of washing out the cassette. The grass hadn't been cut and the Caravan we had seen there 6 years before was still there and  a permanent fixture...also rundown and filthy.  There was also a parcel delivery chap who seemed to be there long term, as he went off to work every morning.   It seems the lovely Mrs Hale, who we adored has handed over the reigns and whoever runs it now has given up caring. What a huge shame!!!

Could be a lot better.

I feel a bit of a turncoat writing this review as, the welcome from Mr & Mrs Hale was excellent, but the reality is that the site could be improved upon quite significantly. So to deal with the issues that I found in order of importance to me. 1. The toilet disposal point was a rusted through manhole, with no facility for washing out the cassette. 2. The grass was very long and had clearly not been cut for a long time, the waste water from previous campers had been discharged into it leaving rice, pasta etc in the grass, quite unsavoury. 3. There is clearly a permanently inhabited van here, it can be seen on street view, which is date stamped as 2011.  It is still there. The negatives said, the views here are stupendous, and its close to places of interest, and some good pubs. It just needs a bit of pride taking in it.
