As part of a group of eight friends in four caravans, we had a most enjoyable and sociable stay at this site. There is plenty of space and a huge field through the gate for those with or without a dog to walk. One of our group had a minor incident on leaving the access road onto the main road. No damage and no injuries but I would like to thank Paul for the help and support that he gave us. He handled the situation with complete understanding and consideration. The site being about two hours or so from the south coast will make a good stopover for a trip to the Lake District or beyond. I would definitely recommend the site and will return one day.
I read the previous reviews (after I had booked a pitch on my mobile). I was horrified re the reports about dirty toilets and tried to book elsewhere but all local sites were full. I arrived full of intrepidation but THE TOILETS WERE IMMACULATE. Yes they are shared with local tradesmen but they were perfectly clean and tidy. The site does storage for a WW2 re-enactment group but unfortunately they didnt come out to play in the adjacent field that they obviously use.
I enjoyed my stay and would visit again.
We stayed on this CL for a couple of nights last year before going on to Malvern. It is fairly convenient for visiting Evesham, which is beautiful and has lots to see. However, I was disgusted with the state of the toilets, which are used by the people in the industrial units as well. I didn't bother with the shower after I saw the state of the loos, so can't comment on that. The site seemed to have more pitches that I thought were allowed on a CL, but as it was our first time of using the CL network, perhaps I am mistaken. Trying to fill our motorhome with water was a complete nightmare. I have never seen such a poor set up, with a filthy sink and none of the adapters we had fitted the tap. My husband had to try to hold the hose on to the tap until we had filled up. Manoeuvring to the tap was extremely difficult with our large motorhome (we spent quite some time looking for the tap before eventually finding it round the back of the loos) and therefore I couldn't possible recommend it to anyone else. Perhaps improvements will have been made by now, but even so, we definitely would not return.
A good sized site. The toilet is shared with men from the small businesses on the farm.
TV is poor. Only caravans on the north side can get limited Freeview although there is a clear horizon for those with satellite dishes
