After a long and hot journey due to M6 closure and desperate for a cuppa on arrival we went to report to the owners before going onsite, as instructed in handbook. It wasn't obvious where to go so we spent some time wandering down drives (and working out the knack to opening the gate!) before locating the house to be told to just pitch anywhere! A basic large field with no pitches marked. We had requested hardstanding, but these were taken, and one caravanner had pitched right in the middle and spread out over a considerable space leaving us one grass area to park up where we felt we weren't intruding on the space of those already sited. We were happy until we realised they also had a generator which they sited well away from their caravan but within hearing distance of ours so there was no chance of any peace and quiet as it was left running for a considerable time. Whilst this wasn't directly the fault of the owners they weren't showing any interest in what was happening onsite! It could be a lovely CL as it is large, in the countryside, has easy access to the canal paths for walking from site and a pottery next door to visit or have a lesson , but sadly, we didn't enjoy our stay and were glad it was just for one night!
