Felt like we were miles from anywhere.... Blissful

Just so peaceful with fantastic walks from the site, this is what we wanted & this is what we got so that's why we gave an overall rating of 5 stars. The main walks from the site are up fairly steep inclines but once at the top there are level pathways & scenic views, although rather muddy at this time of year. The site itself was also muddy so it is best to park up nearest the entrance if they have had a prolonged wet spell but we feel this is to be expected for a rural certified location. The owner Beryl was so friendly but unobtrusive & on hand if we needed her. She gave us some brochures & a map to give us some idea where to visit. We stayed on the site for 3 days purely for walking so we didn't take the motor home out at all. We know the area pretty well & it is a lovely part of the country. Sheep bleating & Owls hooting with just the very faint sound of passing traffic even though it is just off a busy road. I am literally just about to ring her to see if we can stay here for New Years Eve as we thought it would make a change from our usual Boozy NYE parties!!

Rural Setting

Friendly welcome. Large sloping field so plenty of space and so no need to be crammed together. Very quiet and peaceful location. Only the occasional bleat of sheep and lambs in the next field to remind you of the rural setting. Lovely views across the valley.

Lovely CL

We've been co in to this CL for nearly 20 years, and we love it. The views and walks are fabulous. The welcome from the owners is warm and friendly. We've just come back from nine nights on this site, and wasn't disappointed.

Agree, Don't tell anyone else

In the middle of nowhere is this little site with views of the nearby escarpment. Plenty of walks to choose from and a place to ponder and wander. No trouble with filling up with water - used my trusty watering can, thank you, not a lot of noise from the portaloo cleaning business on the weekend. A very warm welcome awaited us on entering the site and the hard standing was fine for our 3.8T van, although I was almost tempted to go on the grass as it was so dry. Walked to the farm shop via a ByeWay and not on the A30. Watch out when approaching the entrance to the site, as it is in a twisting dip of the A30 and this road seems to be used by motorbikes testing their speed. Not enough time spent here so will need to return soon.

Disappointing

Despite the warmth of our welcome and the stunning view of the hillside we were disappointed to find ourselves sandwiched between a noisy portaloo cleaning and storage facility, and an occasionally used helicopter pad. The site is long but but very narrow, and you cannot but help park under the mature trees if you are to leave room for others to drive past you. As a result we felt quite threatened by the large oak we were parked under during a gale one night, and we hardly slept for the noise of twigs, small branches, and large volumes of eater shaken off by the tree leaves after each gust of wind. We think the trees are DANGEROUS and should be cut back to the boundary to avoid flattenig someone. A basic site and not worth the amount paid for it.
