Reviewer: Lea and Yvette 2 reviews from this member

Lovely pub with friendly staff. Nice benches out the back to enjoy a pint in the sun and it's located in a lovely village. The site is tucked in behind the pub so not far to go for food and drinks and it was a very dog friendly pub.

However, the toilet facilities were horrendous - 2 wet rooms with toilets for 24 pitches plus however many more they cram in and one of them was out of order (one working toilet & shower between all those people). People were forever queuing to use the loo/shower. They need more loo's and showers as the current arrangement is rubbish. I used The toilets in the pub a few times but there were times when there was no paper or they hadn't been cleaned.

The pitches were very uneven and as other reviews have said, they really do cram you in. We were a party of 5 (mixture of caravans and tents) and we were allocated 2 pitches between us albeit 2 of the larger pitches but we still had to pay for 5. The water taps and drains were overgrown with weeds and nettles. As you drive in down the side of the pub the first thing you're faced with is overflowing bins that weren't emptied all weekend.

There were other dogs running around our tents at all times of the day & night and some of the other campers were massively inconsiderate - and there was never anyone from the management to assist. What's the point of site rules if there's no one the to monitor/uphold them.

Really disappointed as the site has great potential and embarrassingly it was me that suggested its location to our group. Will not be returning.

Site does not follow 6 metre rule. Water tap 2 feet above electric plug in. Went home early because they let three caravans park behind me, one on my pitch 8 feet away. Tents every where 4 feet apart. Water drains covered in weeds. Grass not cut. No one came out to supervise pitching. Very poorly run. Trying to get too many people on one small site. Pitches too small to allow caravan with awning with safety distance apart.

Our second visit to this site, with very much improved facilities. When site is full as it was this time, the two loo and shower rooms not quite enough. However, it didn't spoil the stay.

The staff at the pub are friendly and helpful and the pub has a good atmosphere. It was very busy due to Easter but the food and service was good all weekend.

There are lovely walks and plenty to do in the vicinity and it makes a good base to explore the area.

We will definitely stay here again.

We were really looking forward to the weekend and the weather didn't disappoint. Nice site in a lovely location. We didn't eat at the pub, but we did have a couple of drinks there. Staff friendly and helpful, so no complaints there.

We only really had problems with some of the other customers of the campsite - late night (early morning until 0200hrs) shouting and music. We did complain, and to be fair the owners did do a tour at 10. 40hrs the next night which effective for those who hadn't gone out drinking instead of staying 'in'. Lots and lots of units and tents on the site that particular weekend, so the facilities were somewhat overwhelmed - 2 shower / wet rooms isn't enough for 20 units and at least 15 tents with groups of families in. Both shower heads were broken, and neither had squeegees in, so you stood in other people's shower water, if that makes sense.

Disappointing night-times spoiling what would otherwise be a decent site. More facilities would help though.

Just returned from a weekend at Cottage of Content. Negative things:

The entrance to the site is alongside the pub and is a very narrow passageway, it would help if the branches and bushes were cut back as they are making the gap even smaller to navigate. There are just two toilets and showers for the whole of the campsite which isn't enough especially when busy, however when the pub is open you can use their toilets. The toilets/shower room floors were often covered in grass clippings from the camp field.

Positive points: Reasonably priced and consistent with the facilities (17. 50 per night with electric). The staff were friendly and after giving you the number of your pitch you are left to it to park up, and they are also relaxed about when you leave( no rules or regulations). The site is in an excellent spot - easy walk across fields to Bidford where there are plenty of places to eat. Cottage of Content also serves good food and is reasonably priced. We will return.

This beautiful Country Pub has recently had its campsite facilities refurbished. There are 2 brand new wet rooms with shower, toilet and washbasin facilities. There is a brand new camp wash up area to the rear of the shower rooms with 3 sinks and drainers. There are washing machine facilities if required. They offer live entertainment every Saturday evening from 9 pm throughout the open season. This really is an amazing and excellent value for money place to stay with excellent home cooked food and great real ales and ciders. The children's play are was a big hit with our kids and I would recommend anyone to stay here.
