A great introduction to CLs

We're just back from our very first visit to a CL site. Although we've caravanned for years, we've only ever been on 'normal' sites. Well after our visit to Fieldhead Farm we'll definitely be going to more CLs. The booking process was very straightforward, and the owner's relaxed attitude on the phone is just what we like. The site is easy enough to access, although as has been said on other reviews, you really do need to follow the directions given, and ignore your satnav. On arrival you're left to get sorted out without any rules on how to pitch. The pitches themselves are all very large. Plenty of room for an awning and two cars. You are on a working farm, so there was some noise, but you're far enough away that it's really not an issue. There's a handy little shed with information leaflets, games, books, walking routes, and suggestions for places to eat. We would certainly go again, and almost certainly will be doing.

So Friendly and helpful.

Having visited the site for the first time at the end of July, we have nothing but praise for this CL site. We were welcomed as a family with children and a dog, and were informed of everything locally that we required. Nothing was too much trouble, we felt welcome and were helped rather than greeted with a list of "rules and regulations". The site is brilliantly located to visit Alton Towers which we did, although the general countryside locally is beautiful with many lakes and historic places of interest also available. The Hard standing pitches and outstanding chemical toilet disposal facilities made this an easy and enjoyable place to stay. We stayed for 3 nights and will visit again and would encourage other families to do so also.

A Cracking CL

We visited this CL with the sole intention of my wife and teenager visiting Alton Towers and we only booked in for the weekend. It would have been great to stay longer as this is an excellent base to visit numerous attractions nearby in Staffordshire or Derbyshire. Directions were simple and precise. Access is excellent althought the last 150yds to the site is very narrow. Take the owners advice and DON'T use the Sat Nav. Mick & Anna are very friendly and totally relaxed about where and how you pitch up and are happy to settle up with you "at some point during your stay". There is free WiFi for those needing it. The pitches are very spacious for a CL and enough room for our twin axle van plus awaning and vehicle with room to spare. Great Pubs for either couples or all the family are nearby and a nice little Tandoori in nearby Rocester. Lovely outlook and great for just relaxing in the recent heat wave. Next time you are thinking of a break in Stafforshire or Derbyshire, give it a try you will not be dissapointed.

A gem

Just spent our first weekend at this lovely CL and it definitely won’t be our last! From our first enquiry by phone we just knew it was going to be a little gem. Had a very warm welcome from Anna on arrival and were told we could stay as long as we wanted on Sunday to make the most of our last day. Pitches are very spacious and level with views of cattle grazing in the fields opposite. Although it is a working farm it is very peaceful and relaxing. There is a little hut with lots of local information about the area and laminated copies of maps and suggested walks which are available to borrow. Lots of games and puzzles for when the weather is not so good. Eggs from the farm hens are also available to buy. We have a motorhome and usually take a water container to fill up the tank as we are never sure how accessible the tap may be but we could have stopped close enough to the tap to be able to use our hose to fill up so will do this next time. The grey water waste point is next to the tap so although you could not get close enough to drain your waste water directly from the tank you could use a bucket. Various walks are accessible from the site. We walked to Croxden Abbey, a walk of about 2 hours well worth doing. The Abbey ruins are very impressive, owned by English Heritage and free to visit. The site is very well located for visiting all that the area has to offer. It is obvious that Mick and Anna take great pride in their site as it is very well tended and looked after and is a credit to them. Hope to return soon and would definitely recommend.

WHAT A FANTASTIC FIND ..........

WHAT A FANTASTIC FIND ..........We are family group of 5 vans, so CL's are our preferred choice, but they vary alot! I found this by accident whilst searching online and promptly booked for the May Bank Holiday w/e before anyone else did. Field Head Farm is a wonderfully simple yet perfectly well laid out CL with 5 spacious, west facing, gravel hardstanding (again our preferred choice) pitches, with electric to each one. Anna & Mick are extremely friendly and relaxed and allow you to pitch anyway you like - side on, or reversed in. The pitches are well kept and individually marked out, they are large enough for van, awning and car, still with space around you. There is a large lawn area in front of the vans you are able to use, with lovely views across their cattle meadows and beyond. We were very fortunate with the weather, so the young children in our group were able to play freely out on the lawn with their toys all weekend which was a huge bonus. There were 4 dogs in our group and they loved relaxing in the sun on the grass also. Although there isn’t a dog walk on site, you can walk them on lead along the farm track, plus the road at the entrance to the site is very quiet and leads down to the ford, so you can walk down there for a paddle also. There is a small hut on site with tourist leaflets, local visitor information and games inside which is useful. The CL is situated at the entrance of the farm, a 100 yards from a very quiet road. As its a working farm obviously there is activity but it wasn’t obtrusive or noisy. The site is peaceful and remote but with easy driving distance to nearby villages, towns and also the Peak district. The nearby farm shop & cafe is definitely worth a visit too. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this CL and we intend to come back many more times. Thank you to Anna and her family for making us feel so welcome, we look forward to seeing you when we return.

A Little Gem

What a wonderful site. The owners are very friendly and accommodating, and nothing is too much trouble. The pitches are an excellent size and are hard standing, a must for winter caravanning. The site is set in lovely countryside but only minutes away from Uttoxeter and all the surrounding villages. We couldn't ask for anything more.

Gem of a site

We stay on this site quite often is it is only about 20 mile away from where we live. The pitch size is bigger than those on a club sites. The views are so lovely and the site is so relaxing to stay on. The owners are so helpful and welcoming, nothing is too much trouble for them. The site is a credit to the owners.

A fantastic CL

This is a lovely CL and well worth a visit. The owners are fantastic and you are made to feel welcome as soon as you arrive. The pitches are generous and fairly even. If you are putting up an awning then you do need heavy duty pegs and mallet - we took a rubber mallet and couldn't get our pegs in! All the pitches are in a line and overlook a lovely grassy area with a few trees within it. On the other side of the driveway are fields. The area is very peaceful and restful and we will definitely be going back again. The electric hook ups are excellent - we had our water heater, fridge and microwave all going at the same time and there was no break in supply.

The perfect CL!

We have stayed here twice now and have enjoyed the same fantastic level of hospitality on both occasions. The owners cannot do enough to make your stay everything it should be. The site is in a lovely location - we selected it for its proximity to Alton Towers but it is equally well-placed for access to some truly stunning scenery and a beautiful part of the country. The site is well laid out and tended, each pitch is very spacious. One word of warning, do pay heed to the owners' advice to ignore SatNav when approaching - we didn't realise and ended up stuck the wrong side of a ford - but that's another story! The site is very easy to find without the use of argumentative technology anyway! We will definitely return to this CL and have no hesitation in recommending it. Thank you for a lovely stay.

Welcoming

This site was lovely. The owners are very friendly and the pitches are in a lovely spot, over looking fields. You are given time to unwind before booking in. They go out of their way to make your stay wonderful.
