Lovely stay at Gate Farm

Stayed at Gate Farm for one night, really nice welcome and given key fob and Covid instructions. Very nice peaceful site with lovely views and animals near by. We were really impressed with Mrs Hammetts Covid precautions with good spacing between the units, water on every pitch and hand hand sanitizer stations where necessary. Lovely walks in the area and recommend a visit to Oakes Farm Shop & Cafe. Our second visit and will be returning.

Excellent site in a beautiful area south of Birmingham

As the headings says this is an excellent site in lovely country side with access to many interesting places by bike, by road or just plain walking. Don't go if you want total peace and tranquility as the end of the Birmingham Airport runway is just 5 miles way and the site is on the approach/take off line. Nevertheless it is very well off the road behind secure gates and looks across a nice valley...if you are lucky you might see Barn Owls but a varied array of aircraft made it interesting . All hard stands and very well kept, nice grass and the best toilet disposal I've come across, very easy to deal with, not like a lot of club sites! Owned by long standing caravaners/motor homers who designed the site to be what they thought a CL should offer. In my opinion they have succeeded and their separate web site and site description on the club site is the best I've come across. Definitely on our list of sites to return to.

Lovely place to stay

We had three wonderful days and nights at Gate Farm, the owners were very pleasant and helpful but not over powering. The walk through the fields to the pub was easy and not to far, free maps were on hand at the CL. We wished we had stayed longer, the weather did help as it was lovely warm and sunny, thanks again till next time.

Fabulous CL

We had the pleasure of staying in our motorhome for one night at Gate Farm CL (wish we could have stayed longer). We'd been to the NEC so this site was very handy for a stop over rather than contend with the Friday traffic. It's a delightful CL with lovely views across the valley. Easy to find from the instructions provided and a very warm welcome from Susie and Steve on arrival. Good wifi provided at no extra cost but the 4G signal was fine too as was the TV signal. Thoroughly enjoyed watching the planes whilst sitting in the sun drinking our coffee prior to departure next morning. All in all we would definitely recommend this site and hope to visit again sometime.

A warm welcome on a rainy night

I arrived at this site after a long drive with 2 of my sons. Having had an issue at a diesel petrol pump at the services, I was covered in diesel and the owners kindly offered to let me use their shower in their own home to clean up. I then had a problem with filling up our van with water and they were to the rescue straightaway, it was cold, pitch black and raining and the welcome they gave us could not have been better. We had to leave very early the next morning which again was no issue for them to get the gate opened for us. A quick stay so sadly didn't get to appreciate the surrounding area, but thank you so much to Susie and Steve for their friendliness and helpfulness.

OUR RECENT VISIT

This is a lovely site with beautiful rural views, everything needed is supplied, and we endorse all the positive comments already made by previous visitors. In fairness we have to say that if you are the type of persons who can ignore a lot of loud frequent noise overhead from low flying planes then this is the perfect CL for you. Similarly this is the site for you if WiFi is unimportant to you. We can only speak as we found and the WiFi signal for us was at best, intermittent, and we were there with only one other van whose occupants were away every day and only came back to sleep in their van. Regarding the planes, admittedly we were there at a very busy holiday time of year, so maybe it’s less busy overhead at other times in the year. I reiterate again the site and surrounding countryside is excellent.

Nice stopover

This was a stopover for 2 nights for us on our way down South. We arrived at the site and received a welcome from the owner who explained the facilities and gave us a fob to be used after 8pm on the electronic gate. We initially were the only unit on site and had a choice of the hardstanding pitches. Lovely views over fields. The weather was glorious sunshine. The information hut had a printed out map for the dog walks, which were great, especially the one just about directly across from the site entrance. We were later joined by a single person in a motorhome who just stayed one night. The second night a Dutch couple stayed for one night on their way back home. We only left the site to walk our 3 dogs as it was too hot to go anywhere with them or leave them in the van (not a complaint). After 2 nights we moved on to Dorset. The only thing to be aware of is it is on the flightpath for Birmingham airport and so there are a very large number of planes passing overhead.

Gate Farm

We stayed here for a week and were delighted with the site. Hard standings were level and all services were readily accessible - the WC disposal point was very easy to use. The owners made us very welcome and were helpful in the information they were able to give us regarding points of local interest. During our stay we visited the National Arboretum, Coventry, Willenhall to visit friends and Kenilworth Castle, a very worthwhile visit with lovely views from the ramparts. The site is on the flight path to Birmingham airport and there are varying degrees of aircraft noise but the frequency is variable and there are long periods of tranquility without any road traffic noise whatsoever. The dawn chorus was delightful and there are many birds in the area, the farm is run on organic lines and wildlife is plentiful. The surrounding Warwickshire countryside was at it's early summer best and there are plenty of good walks from the site, very suitable for dog owners. We will certainly be visiting again.

A Real Gem

After a busy working week this site was the perfect tonic for us. The distant sound of sheep and beautiful countryside views. So much to do locally or simply just enjoy the vista and chill. The aircrafts did not bother us whatsoever in fact we rather enjoyed a bit of plane spotting. We ventured to Warwick and meandered along the river with an ice cream in hand. Finished off the evening with a very nice wholesome meal in the Saracen's Head. Looking forward to returning again soon and enjoying one of the local country walks. Many thanks to Susie, Steve and all the family for sharing your lovely home.
