Yes, we came back again and again

We reviewed Keith's CL a couple of years ago and promised we'd return - well we have been back several times since then although have been remiss in not reviewing again till returning from our 5 night stay in early June. We adore this site and have become friends with Keith and Barbara rather than just visitors. We enjoy both the wild and farm animals and birds. Keith has always kept the grass well cut but has made a significant improvement of late - he invested in a new mower which collects the grass cuttings very effectively so no more treading it into the van. Great move Keith! It really is unusual to have the use of a toilet with a sink, hot and cold water and a real towel on a £12 a night CL. Our only regret is that the site doesn't open during the winter due to potential water logging. As big football fans we like taking the van partway to premier league away games to reduce the match day drive - sadly we have to transfer allegiance to another site in the winter where drainage is better. Never mind, it makes our stays in the drier periods even better and we'll be back there again at the end of June.

A lovely site

We stayed at Keith's well kept site in June this year. It was a real pleasure. We have been using CL sites for most of our 35 years of caravanning and this is certainly worth visiting. It is handy for all the local attractions. Laycock ,the White Horse,Stonehenge and there is local bus into Bath. Yes we would return. Thank you Keith for a wonderful stay.

A classic CL

This is a classic CL with a classic welcome from the owners.....they were lovely providing a clean toilet with paper, soap and a towel. We would have given the peace and tranquillity a 5 except for the large amount of pigeons that had been watching to much Strictly and practiced their Fred & Ginger routine on the caravan roof at 5am! The guinea fowl were amusing for the first day or so but they too could be noisy when they roosted in the evening and sometimes at first light. We did choose the pitch nearest the their roosting tree so only have ourselves to blame. When you arrive use the large expanse of concrete to swing into the gate. We didn't and it proved to be pretty tight. Once we sussed it out we realised our mistake. Average TV reception and 3G on Three network was OK.

Lovely site to stay on in Wiltshire

We stayed on this lovely site for 11 nights.  We spend hours watching the chickens, ducks and guinea fowl, we loved how they flew up into the tree when it got dark. We found plenty of places to visit, several National Trust properties and plenty of nice walks. We will be back for another stay soon.

Wonderful stay

Lovely welcome by Keith.  Beautiful manicured site with wildlife everywhere. The birds kept us and our dog entertained for hours. There is a lovely pub 1.5 miles away which was recommended by Keith The Bell in the local village at Broughton Gifford. This will definitely be a regular site for us.
