When I booked this site there were no reviews - it was a recommendation from someone who had stayed there. I was a little therefore a little nervous when I saw the review that appeared just before I was due to stay! However I need not have feared. If you are expecting mown lawns and full CAMC facilities then this is not the place for you. If you want a proper CL, camping in a wild flower meadow, peace and quite with bee hives and sheep next door then it is. There are also free range pigs (and fantastic sausages to buy) and horses. Access to the site was easy, although there is one turn that could be a bit tight if you have a really, really long motorhome. The site and facilities are tidy and clean, no problem with recycling which is all clearly labelled (along with a what goes where leaflet that was sent to me at time of booking) and I saw no skip of manure...a friendly site where my neighbouring motorhomer for the stay was a regular visitor and pointed me in the direction of the cider and wine they also make and sell on the farm. Good bus route into Bath during the week although it seems more patchy at weekends. Would definitely stay again.
On arrival we were greeted by the owner who seemed quite a nice fellow and told where we could pitch our motorhome after we had paid him, he pointed at a dirty hosepipe on the ground and stated that is your drinking water, we declined the kind offer of his filthy hosepipe and used our own food grade hosepipe to fill up our water tank, the entrance to the site was overgrown and tress scraped along the side of our motorhome as we entered the CL, the pitches were all overgrown, the site was full of old building rubbish and scrap metal, there were no rubbish bins, the chemical toilet disposal point looked like it had never been cleaned and you had to negotiate around yet more building rubbish to access it, the owners dog was running freely so we had to leave our little dog inside the motorhome the entire time, behind the pitches was a skip full of manure (I expect country smells when staying on a farm but do not expect to be pitched adjacent to approx 10 tonnes of steaming manure). This could be a nice CL but I think the owner has taken his eye off the ball and let it go.
