A lovely little gem

Marsh Farm
We also really enjoyed our stay on the CL. Where else will you find a site that sits, quite literally, on the bank of the canal? You can literally sit and watch the passing boats and if you enjoy nature, watch & listen to the birds. We were even lucky enough to see hot air balloons (one of which landed in the field behind us!) and the Red Arrows passed by us one morning too! We're an active, retired couple and it was perfect for access for cycling, walking and we even launched our kayak. We enjoyed endless sunshine (pitch nearest the private road and side onto the grassed area and you'll get the evening sun). It's a lovely cycle into the stunning town of Bradford-Upon-Avon. And a gentle kayak either direction is very safe - we chose to do so outside of busy times and the canal boats just meander gently by. This CL is slightly smaller than many we have stayed on but you are surrounded by beautiful countryside. The owner is exceptionally welcoming and eager to please - nothing too much trouble. It is a no-frills site but, we like that, it's authentic and the location that counts!

Brilliant

Marsh Farm
Well, contrary to some reviews on this CL, i found it to be perfect for what i was looking for..peace and quiet. I didn't mind the walk (100yrds) for the showers, which were adequate for a rural, working farm. Considering most people would choose this site for the towpath walks, i don't understand a short walk to the loos being an issue. There's 2 parts to this farm - the 1st area is serviced, and a lot closer to facilities, the other area is the CL, 5 pitches, park where you want, beside the canal - so it's 50/50 - if you want close to the loos, go there, if you're not worried about a really short walk, then i would choose the CL part. There's no hook up by the canal, but that's suited me as i have solar on the van. (even if i didn't have solar, i'd probably still choose that area) Julie, the owner was lovely, very approachable and already planning my next trip back there.

Lovely few days

Marsh Farm
we disagree with a previous review, yes there are 2 defined areas & yes the toilet & shower room is shared however individual lockable doors made it very secure & the facilities were pleasurable to use & were also spotlessly clean at all times.  The 5 fully serviced pitches had beautiful outlook over the paddock with the addition of a picnic table, flower tub & bird feeders. The CL area is right next to the canal so another lovely outlook. The site is in an excellent location, right on the canal & we walked into Trowbridge one day & cycled to Bradford Upon Avon another day. Lots of lovely places to visit.  The owners are very friendly & informative & we can't wait to visit again.

Not all that it seems!!

Marsh Farm
We have just stayed on this caravan site. I have noted that it seems to have attracted some very good reviews. However I feel that a few things need to be said regarding this CL. In fact the CL area seems very nice and this has water but no electric. The advertised toilets etc are some 120 yards away . There is an area (for 5 vans), which is separate from the CL that has hard-standings etc. and these are advertised as fully serviced. This area seems nice but has some specific drawbacks. It is just to the rear of a set of industrial units with associated traffic. You access the CL and the other area through the industrial units. The site offers WC etc. However what was not apparent or proffered by the owner is that the toilets and shower (1 off) are in a unisex room which is also used by workers from the industrial unit. Although not filthy I would hesitate to say they were spotless. I do not recall them being cleaned the weekend we stayed. You need to be aware that If a female is using the shower there seems no way to keep the area private. Put simply a man and woman can be in the same room at the same time which many could find unacceptable. Now on to more. We elected to book the non CL area as we prefer electric where possible. Just behind this area were a number of caravans looking to be stored. In fact most were occupied by workers. In fact one van was on a fully serviced pitch when we arrived but was moved on the Saturday morning to the "store" area where it was put back into occupancy. So it seems that this CL is not all it seems. It promises a lot but simply does not deliver. I would not reccomend this CL.

Peaceful long weekend stay

Marsh Farm

Just had 3 nights stay on the serviced site at Marsh Farm. 5 level hardstanding pitches with EHU, own tap and greywater drain. There's industrial units behind this section of the site, (no noise when we stayed) but nice views over paddocks towards the canal, which is a couple of hundred yards away, where the basic CL section is situated. Easy access to the towpath for walking and cycling. The toilets/shower are housed in part of one of the industrial units, 2 gents and ladies cubicles and 1 large shower room, all spotlessly clean. Highly recommended, would certainly stay again. Thank you Julie.
