Christmas get together

Brilliant! We were 5 vans meeting up for our annual Christmas get together. We just happened to choose a weekend with the largest snowfall and lowest temperatures for years 🌨️. The owner called us a few days before, checked we were OK to come given the weather and explained over the phone how best to position our 5 vans for ease of setting up when in the dark on Friday eve, we had one van with a large awning for socialising and the owner was more than happy for us to use his large grassed area even though it was terrible weather and risked damage to his grass. We made sure we put matting down on grass to limit damage of all the people going in and out of the awning so I think all was OK! The site is clean and tidy, the hard standing is flat or as close as you need it to be, the views are stunning and you would have no idea you were 3 mins from the a50 other than some road noise! The site is quiet, there is a heated toilet and shower room and as you're close to major routes, getting out and about is no issue! On the Sunday before waking up and through the morning we had some huge snow fall.. The owner was super cool and suggested the roads were open and safe and instructed us on getting off the site safely where it has a slight sloap which you wouldn't notice unless your 1.5 tonne van suddenly started pushing your car 🤓 and we didn't need that! ... But he also suggested we just leave the vans with him at no extra cost till it was safe to pick them up (we were only an hour away) as it was we all left safely on the day.. Even though the snow was heavy enough to build a 7ft snowman ⛄ I can imagine a summer weekend with us all together using the grass to pay games with the kids and sit out drinking wine and watching the stars at night... In essence its a great site for a weekend away a change of scenery and just to get away from the daily grind for a bit.. The owner is attentive and flexible without being in your face... A lovely site 🤠 Hope to go back for a warm weekend


Useful stopover spot

The last review is a bit puzzling. I have stopped on this site before and seen members of the club parked on the grassed area and all indications are that this grassed area is part and parcel of the CL with 4 Hardstanding pitches set alongside the grass for winter use or when the grass is too wet. So I'm at a loss as to the owners alleged response. There is no demarcation from one area to the other and I assume there would need to be as all other CLs that I have stayed on with another space set out for Caravans/MHs have had some sort of barrier between the two. On saying all that I would say that the site is well situated, particularly for a cross country run, not far off the A52, well managed with a wet room that is perfectly acceptable. However road noise can be heard from the main road and as the A52 is a busy road can be intrusive. The site itself is found on a back lane which needs care. The owners are pleasant but not in your face. With regard to the closeness of the Hardstandings I would agree that they are close together and not really suitable if you want to spend a holiday on them and erect an awning but for a few nights it was fine for us. You can easily leave your car in the entrance to the cl or on the grass. Would we stop again? Not sure but would probably manage for a night or so at most. Those wishing to stay in summer should have no problems on the grass as pitches look more spacious.


Perfect

This is a gem. Really friendly welcome, well spaced pitches and plenty of space to play in with the dog. Good toilet and shower facility. Also excellent B&B which my mum used. Pub is a short and flat cycle ride away. Many thanks we shall return


Our first visit

This was our first visit for 4 nights during February half term but we shall return. On arrival there was nobody home so we made our way into the site and set up on an available pitch. Each pitch has its own EHU and water tap and another camper told us where the toilet and shower was. Mr Brandrick came to see us after he returned from work and made sure we was ok. He gave us the Wifi code which he explained was at no cost. The site is very well kept and there is a nice big lawn in front of the pitches to walk your dogs or play if you want. We walked our dogs down the lane to the right of the drive and was able to let them off as there was very little traffic and the vehicles we did see slowed down which was nice. I have read the previous comments on the traffic noise and will say that we noticed it slightly at night or early morning as we had our bathroom roof light open but otherwise it wasn't too bad. I understand there are several places of interest to visit close by but we stayed in and relaxed. I can imagine it being a wonderful place to be in summer months when you can bbq and sit out.
