Beautiful Peaceful Setting But ......

Positives - Friendly welcome by the owner who shows you where everything is around the farm but didn't actually show us the cess pit. Lovely setting on a working farm along a half a mile lane with lots of activity on the pond. Negatives - If the CL site is full then the owner will find you a spot around his farm, beside a barn, or up on the path. We were on the CL sharing facilities with 11 units for several days (5 of us on the sloping CL and 6 scattered around the farm) and we felt the cess pit was extremely unhygienic given we are in the midst of a global pandemic. The cess pit in particular was far too far from the CL, having to carry the toilet canister through one metal five barred gate into a field of three donkeys and a pony (watching your step as you navigate around their poo), through another metal five barred gate into a secluded large lawned garden and then through a smaller five barred metal gate to get to the cess pit, certainly not ideal for anyone with mobility issues, two people we saw using a shopping trolley to transport their toilet canister and fresh water container (it's quite a trek to the fresh water tap and rubbish disposal too, they're in the farmyard and it's a steep walk back up the CL). The cess pit is a large metal platform with two hatches in it, one with a rope, you pull that one and the cess pit hatch opens a big tank full off the urine and faeces like an open sewer. The owner just pointed to the first gate, had he actually taken us through the three gates to show us the cess pit set up we would not have stayed. The rinse tap is on a wall by the back of a building. If the cess pit is full, as it was on the weekend of 11 units sharing it, then it is not a very pleasant smell at all and you have to be careful of splash back.
