Lovely site, even in the rain!

We were visiting the NEC to go to the Caravan and Motorhome Show, with the site being perfect situated for that purpose. We had travelled down from York through torrential rain and arrived just as the rain started to ease off, fortunately. The site is all grass on a sloping site, although it was quite easy to level our caravan particularly with large pieces of wood provided in a pile on the side of the field. As it was late October and it had been raining on and off for a couple of weeks, the grass was a little long, but of course it only became noticeable because the field was very, very wet. There are two toilets and a shower (on a meter) in the very clean and tidy, although open, toilet block, but when you consider this is a CL the facilities are excellent. I read a sign suggesting that home grown sausages and eggs were available, but as we were staying for such a short time, we missed out on that opportunity. The toilet block and area is where the grey waste disposal, Elsan waste, and waste bins are placed. The roads to and from the site are quite narrow, so care needs to be taken, but I have read a review commenting on the access to the site with concerns about holding up traffic on the road, it's possible that Kate and Andrew have made some adjustments but we certainly didn't have any problems. The exit is a bit more complicated as you have to leave the site down a gentle slope, and if solo you just have to make a very sharp left turn, with a small reverse, to make the turn as you almost turn back on yourself. When leaving with the caravan you have to drive into the farmyard, turn towards the house and then reverse the caravan into the yard and then drive out, it really is simple, loads of space and the only distraction for us were the sweet little Gloucester Old Spot piglets in their pen! This is a fabulous site that we will be using again.
