This is a great little site in a lovely spot. It's very open with nice views from the tent wherever you're pitched and if you're on the rally field you'll get the sun all day (sun? what's that then?).

The electric pitches vary in size with some being big enough for even the biggest jumbo tent so it would be worth letting them know when you book if you need one of the big ones.

The fishing lakes seemed very popular and we enjoyed walking round these, watching some huge fish being caught.

The electric supply is good (didn't manage to trip it anyway), the two water taps are more than adequate for the size of the site and there was always hot water in the showers.

A nice touch in the ladies shower block was the toiletries left in case you forgot anything. The cafe was useful too, especially as we arrived at lunch time with 3 starving kids who refused to pitch the tent until they'd had a bacon sandwich!

Just a couple of negatives, although these definitely won't stop me visiting again. Firstly, the smell in the shower block can be unbelievably awful. It's kept very clean so it can only be the drains and most of the time it was fine but when it was bad it was very, very bad.

Secondly, there's no hot water in the washing up sink. It's not a massive issue as I suppose everyone can boil a kettle but it seemed a bit odd that it was just cold water.

Not much else to say except the nearest supermarkets are the small co-op 10 minutes away in Bulkington and the Morrisons superstore 8 miles away in Hinckley.

All in all, a nice site and good value for money. We'll be back.

First impressions were good.

Missed the site at first went next door, they weren't overly impressed, seems to happen a lot apparently. So better signs perhaps with more warning that we are approaching the site, would be good.

Ladies toilets were thoughtfully well stocked, impressive, you don't get that very often. Well done.

However the showers would get better reviews I think if you were to raise the timer light switches, to make them more accessible from within the cubicles, got plunged into darkness ever shower, not funny.

Site drainage wasn't too bad considering the monsoon type weather we had.

Local facilities were good. Really enjoyed 10 pin bowling.

Loved the animals, very cute and very impressed with the lake, although I'm no fisher the walk was so lovely with lots of wildlife.

Good site.

Booked this as a lads (well actually 3 middle aged blokes) fishing weekend. The site is easily found and close to the motorway so travelling there was easy.

On arrival we headed to reception to get booked in and had the facilities pointed out and was taken to our pitch. The ehu pitches are well sized on grass but a little narrow getting into. We had to unhook and push the van into position as did a couple of other people we saw.

The site is fairly basic. Toilet / shower blocks were very basic but functional. Whilst we were there it rained almost constantly which effected (no surprises really) the grassed areas which became quite boggy. The reception doubles as a small cafe where you can get a full breakfast cooked for a very reasonable price. They also sell some sweets and drinks.

If you are fishing, they will actually take your order and bring the food to you at your peg! Full English and never even moved from the waterside! Bliss.

The two ponds are of a good size and even though the weather was terrible, they were both still fishing well. Note that one of the ponds is used for an open match on a Saturday morning.

Wolvey is about 1. 6 miles walk and has a couple of pubs there. We ate at the Blue Pig one night (typical village pub and food) which was fine. Bulkington is a bit further and is a 5 minute car ride away and has more amenities including a spar and chip shop.

Overall a good site with basic facilities, good fishing and good value for money.

Very easy to locate site, with friendly, accommodating staff at reception.

My party pitched up in a far corner of the rally field, which was pretty water-logged, but to be expected following a week of rain. Not the biggest though; we were lucky as the weather appeared to have scared some visitors off - guaranteed sun might see space at a premium?

The facilities were okay - the toilets kept well-stocked will loo-roll, and the two mens' showers were fine. The light-switches on a timer (on the outside of the showers) caught out one or two of my party out however!

No hot water for washing pots & pans too - this could do with addressing, if truth be told.

Wolvey just a quick 15 min walk up the road - we tried the Blue Pig, which was very decent indeed (really good Speckled Hen, and they do a tasty cottage pie).

All in all a good site - accessible, cheap and friendly.

The site was extremely quiet, as the weather was terrible! It was muddy, but that was unsurprising. Plenty of hard-standing between field and toilet block which helped to keep toilets clean. The toilet block was well-presented, cleaned daily and even had spare toiletries available. Be aware that the disabled facilities means no steps, but no other adaptations (seats, handles, larger cubicles etc).

The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. The one problem (when the gents flooded due to the torrential rain) was quickly sorted. Not a large range of facilities, but ideal for those of us looking for a peaceful break. Cafe was open when it was worthwhile for it to be open (at this time of year, when anglers were expected) and we enjoyed a great cooked breakfast.

We thoroughly enjoyed the antics of the various animals. Ideal for children and animal lovers, but responsible dog owners only!

We'd go again and hope for better weather.

We chose this site having read the good reviews of previous visitors. It's within easy driving distance of Coventry, Nuneaton or Birmingham. We were the only campers on the tent field which made for a very peaceful 4 days. However there had been a lot of rain before our visit and the field was rather muddy, especially at the entrance.

We fished once on site & caught nothing. The site doesn't sell any tackle or bait & we purchased what we needed in Coventry. We couldn't try the cafe as it wasn't open except for the day of our arrival, in fact we didn't even see the owners after our arrival day. We would have liked to try the recommended breakfasts but the cafe was never open at this time of day during our stay.

We were disappointed with the toilet/shower facilities. The mens room was dark inside due to missing bulbs in the cubicles and main sink area, the urinal area was smelly, there was nowhere to put anything by the sinks e. G. Wash bag, towel etc.

There isn't a shaver socket. The only mirror was in one of the shower cubicles. The mens showers didn't work on the occasions we tried to use them. The ladies room is slightly better, the showers worked and were hot, the sinks worked & were hot, soaps & hand towel always available.

However neither ladies or mens had any heating so it made for a rather cold washroom experience for all of us. The main doors to ladies & mens were always left open which didn't help.

The wash up sink for campers is just outside the toilet block and is under cover. However it is pretty useless as there is only a cold tap and no hot tap. As we all know you can't wash greasy dirty pots and pans in cold water so we just washed up at the tent using our kettle.

The ducks, hens, geese etc were very nice and friendly.

All things considered we wouldn't stay here again as it just doesn't suit us.
