Lovely people who were very helpful and showed us round everything. Lovely views - unfortunately we never got to see the sunsets. Although, thanks to a very loud cockerel we did get to see the sunrise - everyday!

As for the facilities - I was quite disappointed in these, the toilets were quite clean but the shower (which is not the one in the picture on their website) would not drain and was in danger of overflowing - I removed the trap to see if it would help and I was rather concerned by what I found there. Also if someone flushed the loo I got scalded and for the money I wasn't expecting to have to boil a kettle to wash up.

I understand that this is a CL site but we went an hour away and stayed at a 5 star site for £5. 50 more

That said it is in a lovely area and we spent a lovely morning at Foxton locks and a day in Melton Mowbray visiting the museum, the heritage trail and a picnic in the park.

Yet another wonderfully relaxing weekend at Barford Top, Wendy and Maurice are lovely hosts, and keep the site looking lovely. The sunsets we were privy to over the weekend along with the thunderstorm were spectacular.

Plenty to do nearby, Foxton Locks is a must, and some very nice eateries nearby too.

Love this little gem so much we have booked again for next weekend.

We stayed for a weekend in order to go to a family wedding nearby. Unfortunately on the journey we had damaged the jockey wheel lever. We couldn't detach the caravan from the car! Maurice was extremely helpful and sorted us out very quickly.

What service!

The site has everything necessary for a comfortable holiday break. I endorse all that the previous reviewers have said.

What a lovely campsite with good, clean facilities. Unfortunately we arrived at the site a lot later than we had intended due to various travel issues but Wendy was very patience and really made us feel welcome when we finally arrived. The local pub, the Queens Head, is very nice and serves great food. There are lots of walks and cycle routes in the area which we intend to make the most of next time we come. I would really recommend this site for a quite break.

This campsite/CS has wonderful west facing views over green rolling farm land, inhabited by sheep & cattle. Providing the weather is sunny you will see a sun set from your pitch. We have no complaints about our stay there, but as motorhomers feel that the lay out of the land is not correctly described.

There is a 5 van Camping & Caravan Club CS which is level & has EHU. These pitches face west towards the view & back onto the road, which is not overly busy.

The camp site is in front of the CS pitches and is a gently sloping field, the grass of which is well kept. To one side of the field EHU is provided on the outside of the livery barn. Our pitches were at the bottom of this area and with a motorhome it was slightly difficult to get the van level owing to the undulating & sloping nature of the ground. Leveling blocks are definitely required. During our stay the CS pitches were all occupied by caravans & all the motor homes were in the camp field.

There are 2 toilets & one shower all kept nice & clean. The camper’s barn has seating inside, sink for washing up (hot water provided by a kettle), one of the toilets and shower. Being on a high ridge the ground is well drained, but the site is exposed and can be very windy.

The owners are very friendly & welcoming. An information leaflet was provided when we checked in. Work is continuing to improve the site, which will hopefully include the leveling or terracing of the camping field.

All in all we had a very peaceful relaxing weekend, walking, cycling and enjoying just watching the wild life, farm animals & sunsets.

As per a previous review this really is a little Gem. A really warm and friendly welcome from Wendy and Maurice who gave us a little booklet of things to see and do and showed us around the facilities of the site. We had a perfect view across the valley to watch the sunset every evening.

We actively seek out small campsites and if they are adult only even better. This site was just the ticket, dog friendly, good washing up area. They have 2 toilets and 1 shower, but they were adequate for the site and kept clean. In the barn they had sofa's and tables for evening socials should you wish, what a good idea!

The field had good drainage and another field for those under canvas.

Lovely surrounding countryside and villages. Foxton Locks is nearby and well worth a visit.

A site to return to.
