Lovely, friendly CL with great views

Flaxlands Fishery
We stayed for one night at Flaxlands en route to wales. Lovely site with nice big flat hard standing, your own electric and water and lovely views over the lakes. Having looked at the previous reviews we decided to book and we’re pleased we did. I would certainly return & would not hesitate to recommend it, you can hear the “ hum” from the motorway but it’s certainly not intrusive.

Beautiful setting

Flaxlands Fishery
We stopped overnight here - lovely CL. Great views and loads of wildlife. We watched the geese and ducks and saw the heron swooping. They've done an amazing job here in creating an oasis near the motorway. Yes, you can here the motorway but you can filter the noise out and it's definitely worth it! So much so we booked another overnight on our way home.

A Great Stop Over

Flaxlands Fishery

Found Flaxlands after being let down by another CL, the site is an anglers paradise with two fishing lakes and a campers dream with its views over the lakes. We phoned for availability and was answered by very friendly owner who gave us full instructions and directions, arriving at the site as the lakes were closing, we were met by site staff with a small welcome pack with all the details needed together with a key for the gate which is locked at night so very safe, we were not hassled for the site fees and told to settle up in the morning. after pitching up the owner (Gordon) popped in later to make sure we were ok, a really nice touch. The site over looks the fishery with all hard standing pitches each with EHU and its own water tap, separated by landscaped planting, our pitch no5 was total flat so no need for ramps at this CL. The CDP has easy access for our campervan but away from any of the pitches. The is a small holding on site with a collection of chickens, hens, rabbits which would be of interest to all, dogs are welcome but not allowed around the lakes, there is a dedicated dog walk. The only slight negative was the constant back ground traffic noise from the M4 but didn't detract from the site. A very friendly site.

Picturesque

Flaxlands Fishery
Friday and Saturday night stay. Pitched up in motor home on a completely flat pitch, on a raised area a few hundred yards away from the very pretty lakes. Nice to have electrics and water with each pitch and no "shrubbery" to negotiate when plugging in. Yes, you can hear a distant hum of the M4 occasionally, but didn't distract from the tranquility. A short walk to the chemical disposal area, which was the best I've seen. Waste water can be used on the new plants/shrubs which are being grown to enhance the camping area. Hand sanitiser everywhere. A lovely walk, past some unusual chickens down to the lakes. Nicely cut grass, but watch for "goose poo" as there are quite a few Canadian geese. Sat on a bench, admired the views, ducks and moorhens and watched the fishermen [and ladies] in glorious sunshine. We were lucky enough to see a young lad and his Dad? bring in a mirror carp, the lads personal best. We also spotted a Red Kite and a Heron - all in all a very enjoyable 2 nights - next time we might actually venture into Royal Wootton Bassett!

A gem of a CL site

Flaxlands Fishery

Our first week back at Flaxlands following lockdown. Still the same warm welcome and ease of setting up on our pitch. Tranquil views over the lake and a great opportunity for anyone who likes fishing. We now have booked several more trips here during the year. Great to see COVID measures in place throughout the site. Anna Chapman Caravaner
