No Chickens!

We loved this site for all the reasons given by other reviewers. It's what I call a 'proper' CL. One or two additional comments we can make are :- Whilst the access track wasn't as bumpy as I was expecting it is positively 'single track no passing places' so observation of the 12 o'clock rule for arrival/departure is strongly advised! We were in the right hand pitching area and it is indeed a steep pull up ( I was dreaming of a motorised Aquaroll !) However we had no problems at all with traction in our 2 wheel drive saloon, this despite the heavy rain we had at times. It seems the ground naturally drains well so please don't be discouraged if you don't have a 4 x 4. The paths described by others don't show on the Ordnance Survey map because they are permissive paths - this threw me at first but there is indeed a nice path running north east from the CL field to connect with further permissive paths through the grounds of Bayfield Hall. From the site name and the description - 'working farm' my wife was concerned about the smell of chickens. There is indeed (arable) farmland all around but it looked to me like Chicken Barn is just the name of the owners house - certainly we didn't see or hear one on our entire visit ! Just hares, rabbits and deer.
