Nice CL, but pricey plus a few other points

Stourhead Estate
A very peaceful CL with easy access to the gardens The gardens are simply stunning at any time of year, but in autumn its something else again, be sure to take your camera etc. Having said that, for a CL £21 is a bit steep when compared to the cost of a Club site, which has far more facilities. I am sure the Clubs argument will be "well it covers however many are in the caravan" but first off its unlikely to attract families, just couples due to the lack of facilities, as there are no shower facilities etc it should cover all the occupants as you are just paying for somewhere to park, connect to EHU etc The cost does give you access to the Gardens (which normally costs £18 per adult, so the £21 overnight fee is a real bargain) but if you are NT members there is no discount so you are, in effect, paying twice for the same feature! I do think there could/should be some form of concession for NT members, such as 3 nights for the price of 2 perhaps.

Weekend Stay

Stourhead Estate
Such a shame…… Another enjoyable stay at this beautiful site. Peace and tranquillity in abundance. However we are saddened to learn that for 2022 the price will be charged for our camper including 1 person, + a charge for each additional person + a charge per dog. For us this we consider the charge to be too high at £31.50 per night for a basic CL. Such a shame as we stay here at least 4 times a year. We hope that maybe a U turn will be made and we can come back in the future. Missing you already Stourhead but fond memories

Peaceful little CL

Stourhead Estate
This is a little CL on the edge of the car park. It has electricity, water grey waste and rubbish bins. The pitches are not huge but plenty big enough. The bonus is you get to visit the gardens which are truly magnificent, we were lucky that the rhododendrons were out so stunning. There is a pub within walkable distance through the site which was alright but very limited menu and quite expensive for what it was. Still it made a change for being at home. Would recommend this site.

Beautiful location

Stourhead Estate
Warm welcome. Site easy to access. We have a reader lounge so overlooked the field rather than the car park which was mainly empty whilst we were in. Some pitches may need blocks to level. Facilities open when NT is open. We walked the footpaths across the fields gave views and shelter. The garden was stunning enjoying it after closing and before opening was worthwhile. Couldn’t be a better spot to see Stour-head. In the corner of the main car park there is a smashing farm shop to say nothing of the on site pub. What more could we ask. More of the same please NT and CMC.

Ssshhhh, Just between you and I

Stourhead Estate

We were only here for one night, The kids, the wife and I,

But time just stopped, and we relaxed as we looked towards the sky.

The rain it came, in bucketloads but it didn't stop the mood,

as at half past ten at night, a walk, we thought, be good.

And in our coats and wellies, we walked around the grounds,

with bats and deer and toads we shared, the forest without sounds.

The pitch was as they say perfect, with everything so neat,

with a welcome, all so friendly, this site is such a treat.

We were there just a while, 24 hours, just one day,

and only £14 for four, there's not much else to say,

It's the perfect place for everyone, yes, even when it's grey.

Thank you to all the staff on Saturday, it would be good to see more collaboration between the C&MH Club and the NT to increase the network across the UK. It would be a positive move for both of you and a fantastic time for your members.
