Super helpful Owners and lovely site

We have just spent the weekend here, a cold one! We arrived in thick fog after being held up by a nasty accident en route. The owner gave me his mobile number to text him nearer to arrival which meant I could let him know we were delayed. The entrance is just after the pub turn off but before the cattle grid when arriving from the Cirencester direction. The field itself was wet so we were on the hardstanding, luckily we had a long hook up cable but we were offered one if ours was too short. This site is in a working livery so some coming and going but it didn't disturb us. The gate gets locked each night so felt very secure. There is a cattle grid on the main road which does rumble but not so loud as to bother us, in fact initially we wondered what the noise was! The showers are absolutely fabulous, the best ever in a CL site. The first night we had our evening meal at The Ragged Cot, which serves dinner until 9.30pm. Lovely food, not "a la ping" which meant you paid a little more but it was worth the money. Take a torch to two to get there and back.....no footpath and very dark! Saturday was spent in Cirencester. A mix of chain shops and lovely independents too. The museum was fantastic and only £4.95 an adult to visit. We learnt more than one or two facts in here! The Beeches car park is a good one for motor homes if you park the back over the grass (sat nav GL7 1BN and a maximum cost of £3.40 for the day). Finally as we were the only fools to venture here on such a cold weekend we were told we could leave whenever we liked which meant an even longer lazier Sunday morning than usual!

What a fantastic CL with warm friendly owners (but don't tell anyone or it may get busy!)

What a find! We booked in here for the August bank holiday week and it is certeinly on our list of sites to remember, for all the RIGHT REASONS! Approached from Cirencester which was a nice easy route with no hills to concern yourself about, even with a long twin axel (Swift Conquerer 645) caravan. Site is gated due to the livery stables and made you feel very safe and secure. We had a pitch reserved for us as they were booked up for the bank holiday weekend and were met by the down to earth and wonderfuly friendly owner who immediately gave us all the directions and information we needed. The immaculate showers and toilet block are second to none with 3 ample toilets and 2 large wet rooms with power showers (which are perfect when persuading a 9 year old boy to have a shower!). Unfortunately, they were so good I had to bribe him to get out of the shower - every day! The site is central to many NT & EH sites and we certainly made the most of our memberships. I cannot find anything negative to say, almost a first for me. LocalPlacesOfInterest, security, site, facilities, warmth of welcome and friendliness are SECOND TO NONE. Until next time... :o))))

By the way, it's well worth the 5 minute drive to The Weighbridge Inn to sample their 2in1 pie, just make sure you have a very light lunch!!

I would go back

Approached the site from Stroud towing a caravan. Steep narrow road from Stroud onto the Common (due to parked cars on both side) but luckily not too busy and the Pathfinder didn't struggle. Had to dodge cattle crossing the Common road. Access to the site was fine. Gate secured at night about 2130hrs as location is also a stables. Pitches are all flat. We were parked on the opposite side of the field to the electrics (?) so long lead is required. We had to borrow an extension from the owner. Shower block is excellent. Toilets x3, showers x 2(very powerful). Kept very clean with always two toilet rolls, handwash and hand towels changed daily. My only criticism (in a nice way) is the showers could do with a curtain to keep the area for changing dry, especially if you splash around in the shower like me. Excellent for dogs with access to the fields next to the pitch or over the fields onto the Common. For golfers there is a testing course located on the Common. bet you lose lots of balls, because we found some whilst walking across the Common. A well managed site unfortunately only let down by the cattle grid on the Cirencester Road which groaned every time a vehicle passed, unfortunately outside the control of the site. I would return if in the area.

Excellent site!

Excellent site, only minor issue was with the broken cattle grid on the public road approx 100 metres away which groaned every time a vehicle went by, the road was quite busy esp. early morning (07:00- 08:30) and later between 16:30 - 18:00. Best showers and loos we have encountered in 25+ years of camping/ motor homing. clean efficient and towels changed daily. Site is 600 feet above sea level and somewhat exposed to the west. There may be other suitable approaches for caravans other than the road from the east ( coming from Cirencester) but I did not find them, approach from Stroud OK in an Elddis 140 motor home but not with a caravan!

Flat site, friendly owners, good location on edge of Cotswolds

As soon as we arrived we were welcomed and given a choice of pitches. The field was at the side of the farm with easy access on and off and is completely flat. The toilet and shower block was new and very clean. The site is on a main road, however, it is not a very busy road so the noise was minimal and didn't disturb at all. There are a couple of footpaths very close to the farm and Minchinhampton is within walking distance. There isn't much to do in Minchinhampton - mainly nice walks around the Common, however, it is a typical sleepy Cotswolds market town and Gatcombe Park and Badminton are very close by. We used the site as a stop off on the way to Cornwall and would definitely use again.
