What a delightful site!

196 Norrington Common
A super stay at this delightful site, we will definitely return. The site itself is level, tidy and spacious with good facilities for rubbish/recycling etc. Mr Young is very helpful and welcoming, as are all the lovely birds and animals here. We were lucky that 13 gleenie chicks had just hatched and we were able to see them as well as picking them up. Thank you Keith.

Delightful

196 Norrington Common
Lovely short grassed site with no cuttings to drag into van, surrounded by greenery and a pretty garden belonging to the owner Mr Young. We found it level enough. The Guinea fowl and Bantam Chickens run freely and gave us quite a giggle at their antics - the chickens sitting on our step at one stage. There was a rooster somewhere as we heard him, but it didn't affect our sleeping, nor did two pigeons who were running up and down on our roof for a few seconds. Spotted a hare grazing not 50 yards from us. Just outside, as others have mentioned a lovely pond, with geese, ducks and more guinea fowl, so pretty to wander by. We visited Lacock, a must if you haven't been before, very surprised it was free parking - such a bonus these days. Lovely chat with Mr Young, who seemed to be on the go all the time - he even milks his four cows by hand! Even enjoyed the thunder storm - thoroughly enjoyed every minute.

Warm Welcome

196 Norrington Common
Basic site, which is exactly what we wanted. We spent two nights here. Very warm welcome by owner who was very helpful and took the time for a chat and to explain everything we wanted to know. There is a lovely pub within walking distance (just). The guinea fowl were lovely and it was great to see a number of geese and ducks round the pond just outside the gates of the property. The birds were noisy on occasions on our first night. We put this down to the possible presence of a fox. The second night was silent. Wouldn't hesitate to go there again if in the area. Close to some National Trust properties.

Still a great site

196 Norrington Common
This site was always a firm favourite of ours but unfortunately we have not been able to visit for a few years. However we have just spent 3 nights there again & were welcomed like long lost friends by Keith & that is what you are. Everything is still lovely & a beautiful spot. Will not wait so long to go back again but you do need to book as he is always busy with so many returners.

Lovely site!

196 Norrington Common
Our first visit to this extremely relaxing, pretty site, with quirky humorous touches, excellently maintained by the lovely owner Keith - a nicer person you couldn’t hope to meet. We enjoyed watching the entertaining Guinea Fowl & chickens running around the site and were shown some lovely little newly-hatched chicks. Take earplugs if you don’t want to be woken by the cockerel! :-) The site is well placed for visiting many local beauty spots & attractions and there is a good selection of supermarkets and amenities close by, in Melksham. It's the kind of site that you're sad to leave. We will definitely be back!
