We needed a local site to try out our new caravan and this site being 25 minutes down the road fitted the bill perfectly. Very easy to book a pitch online via the sites website. Paid by BACS before arrival. Clear notice on the noticeboard along the driveway advising which pitch you are on. We were warmly greeted by Julie within minutes of pulling in and then given time to pitch up before she came back with some local information and explained where everything was. All pitches have EHU, water taps and grey waste can be piped into the hedge/field edge which makes them fully serviced. We were on pitch 5, which is the smallest of all in Orchard Lodge, but still plenty of room for our caravan with the car beside on the grass. If you had a big awning you may find that pitch a bit tight. It is also the only pitch that is directly opposite another, but this was no problem for us as the campervan opposite drove into pitch 4 so we weren't facing each other. We got on and off the pitch with a large twin axel caravan with no bother. Despite heavy rain and wind whilst there the hard standing drained well and the site was sheltered. There was some noise from the agri dealer next door but this was only for a short time in the morning on Saturday. Suspect it is busier during the week, but if you like to sit by the van and think this might bother you, you could book in to Orchard Lawn which is not as close to the yard. Site is clean and tidy and felt very secure being set back from the road behind a gate, with CCTV. Access to the site from the A419 was easy and the final bit down Hay Lane was no problem, with an easy entrance into the site. There are plenty of things to do in the area, both close and further afield. Peter popped by on our last day to say there was no need to rush to pack if we didn't want to as there was no one coming in after us. Which was a nice thoughtful touch. All in all a really lovely site that is a credit to Peter and Julie.
