Really nice CL site, although sloping and our blocks weren’t quite enough to get absolutley flat. Lovely couple who greeted us at their farm house and freely offered us tips where to go next. The surrounding farm buildings are extremely old and rustic and we loved the feel of this farm site. Very quiet. Nice walks from the site. EHU, water taps, rubbish and toilet dump all working perfectly. Everything we need.
I was really disappointed to read some of the negative aspects of the previous review in particular! We have just returned from a weekend away at Ty-Cooke Farm and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Yes, the driveway is a 'little rough' and there are a few potholes, but really, does this detract from the Site at all? On site, yes, we needed levelling blocks, the Site Directory states it is part sloping, - I knew it before I arrived, had blocks in the caravan, so no 'great shakes'! The grass wasn't long at all, - perhaps in need of a 'slight trim' yes, - and as for other caravans on Site, well, there appeared to be one 'semi-permanent' one there, the owners of which weren't, and we were the sole 'occupants' of the Site for the weekend! Yes, it was fifteen quid for the night - a pound more than some beautiful caravan sites without toilet blocks - like St. Agnes Beacon in North Cornwall for instance where there is the perfect sunset for viewing, - I do appreciate that the Farm Buildings here do block' what would be an extremely amazing vista otherwise. As for TV reception, well, don't even bother bringing the matter up! You need a decent aerial system for your caravan or a decent amplifier! Being from the Bristol area, we even managed !to pick up BBC West so really that is a pathetic complaint! Only six miles or so up the road to Abergavenny and the really interesting Saturday market - then a nice lunch in Raglan thereafter. A totally 'lazy' day today with a walk to 'The Horseshoe' PH close by - (7 or 8 minutes, or a minute or two's drive!) . The Sunday Roast looked lovely and we shall definitely partake on our next visit! A really lovely spot! Quiet and peaceful with only the birds and farm animals filling the air with noise. Don't let the previous reports put you off.......we shall most certainly be back! A really lovely, relaxing weekend!
I am sorry to say that for £15.00 a night this cl was very poor value for money. If this hadn't been a last minute 3 night break we would have moved on. We stayed on this one about 5 years ago and even then the driveway was very rough and pot holed. It hasn't changed. The grass was about 8 inches long and soaking wet, speaking to a man who has been there 3 weeks it hasn't been cut in that time. I don't think it has been cut in six months. The field itself should be described as part level rather than part sloping, bring some good levelling blocks. It is a shame that the flatter areas are taken up by semi permanent caravans whose owners only occasionally come to use them. There were seven caravans on site only two of which were occupied (I thought this was against club rules and planning permission). Tv and radio reception was poor but that might be due to our older type caravan aerial. The chemical disposal is via a neat, covered, hole in the ground but the rinse tap did not work. There are few views from the site as there are a number of farm buildings in the way. Locally a walk alongside the canal revealed kingfishers, herons, a cormorant along with ducks and a green woodpecker. We knew the price before we went so I can't complain at that other than for £15 just with ecu a night you should expect a decent standard. We didn't see the owner (no doubt a busy farmer) until the morning we were due to leave but I'm sure that was just a coincidence. I pointed out these faults to the owner as he collected his money but he said he couldn't cut the grass as it would then traipse into the caravan. All in all very disappointed and will not be returning. If you are in the area go to the Horseshoe pub, just up the road, brilliant staff and food.
generaly good and quiet site.bad points :owner change price after 2 days,unusal waste hole(old toilett:))good points: very big site for about 8 vans ,u can park like you want,water connection,no one interupt you.hard to find maps show different adress.
