Reviewer: Bigtom 1 review from this member

Great countryside location on the outskirts of Bath, not far from Bradford on Avon. Very good compromise between developing the site for guests and leaving it in a natural state. I love the atmosphere of sites where money is not demanded from you before you can drive on. It's so much more relaxing to arrive and be pointed to a pitch and left to it. Paid the next day when we bumped into the owners, perfect.

Only slight negative was the one shower and toilet per gender and that water started to cool when busy. Showers were very good though and I would prefer quality over quantity any day. I am sure more will be added as time goes by.

We stayed in the lodge and the rest of the part was a caper van and a tent. We were all together and it was lovely to be around the fire pit at night.

Would recommend this site to anyone not seeking an 'all singing all dancing' commercial site.

Perfect little woodland retreat. Just had a lovely stay at the Blackberries and would definitely recommend this place. Had not camped in a woodland site before but loved it.

Short walk to a fantastic gastro pub 'The Muddy Duck'. Short drive to Bradford on Avon where we hired bikes and cycled the canal tow path.

Owners Beryl and Adrian are very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Would say that you will need to book well in advance. We could not get in for the May bank Holiday so booked for August instead. Would even suggest booking for next year.

Only very slight criticism was that there was only 1 shower and 1 toilet per gender. However we did not wait long, they were spotless and it definitely did not put us off.

I can't wait to return next year.

This site is the perfect retreat for those who want to enjoy a peaceful, friendly and relaxed time while camping. It is not your typical commercial site with pools, slides etc the camp site is your playground and what a perfect playground it is.

The site is beautifully laid out with areas for natural flora and fauna and credit has to go to the owners, Adrian and Beryl, for the work they have put into getting the right balance.

We were made welcome from the day we arrived to the day we left and the owners always had time for a chat and give us some excellent local knowledge, they even BBQ for us one evening, big thanks for that.

We were supplied with a fire pit and had our teenage children forage in the woods for sticks, and most nights we sat around the fire enjoying the peacefulness of our surroundings and our own company, something we forget to do in our busy lives.

There is one toilet and shower for each sex and they were kept very clean and we never had any issues waiting for them. I know there is plans for more and possibly a small shop but given that this is their first year I was more than happy with the facilities provided.

We spent 5 wonderful days in what can only be described as 'true camping heaven'

Reviewer: Bouncy-tigger 1 review from this member

The camp site is very niclely located. The staff is friendly and you feel happy in nature. There are only 2 showers and 3 toilets for all, which can lead to some wait in the morning.

We had the experience, that the pitching pf the tents is not rgulated. So we found a large group 2 meters next to our tent one evening. Since people stayed up late and talked around the fire we had a hard time to sleep. We didn't like this and left early.

Management response: We always try to ensure that all visitors to our site are well catered for and have an enjoyable stay.

The people who camped next to 'Bouncy Tigger' were a couple of metres away. My husband at the request of 'Bouncy Tigger' went to check the situation, the time was around 8.45pm and found that the small group of people were enjoying a chat around the camp fire, toasting marshmallows. He did not think that they were loud and certainly had no music playing. Our cut off point for music / noise is 11pm and this was well within that time frame.

We are sorry for any inconvenience to any of the campers. Thank you, Beryl and Adrian

We've just returned from a great week at Blackberries. What a lovely site! So picturesque and beautifully laid out. Peaceful and a haven for wildlife - including the chickens and goats!

The facilities are spotless, with plenty of hot water, although only a couple of toilets and showers at the moment, there wasn't a problem with queuing. More toilets and showers are being built. Lots of interesting walks from the site and a great pub, the Muddy Duck at Monkton Farleigh, 15 mins walk away.

Beryl and Adrian are very helpful and so friendly - we wish them lots of luck with their venture and hope to visit again one day.

Great little camp site, small, intimate and very relaxed.

Modern, simple facilities, secluded and you can be at one with nature.

There are moo cows and chickens you can look at and owner even let us look at his baby goats too, my two year old absolutely loved it.

Reasonable price and great local knowledge from owner, good location too with easy access to Bath and Bristol as long as you drive.

Quite at night, everyone in bed by 10!
