Lovely little site in a quiet rural location and very handy for Bradford-on-Avon and Bath. Helpful owner who has worked hard over the last three years to create a well cared for site out of a large bramble patch! He was happy to advise on local walks and the nearby woods are a delight.

The pitches are large and fairly level with plenty of EHUs and most seem to have a fire basket - mixed blessing if your neighbour's smoke is blowing your way!

The limited toilet and shower facilities were sometimes a problem but they were always clean and the water was free and hot except at really busy times.

We visited this site over the August bank holiday and loved it. The owners are very friendly. The site is small but has lovely pitches of great pitches, pre-pitched bell tents and pods. There are two lovely goats in a small enclosure that the kids loved to pet and feed. The site has wooded areas around it which were also great playgrounds and each pitch has a handy fire bucket. Whilst of no use for cooking, it's great to sit around in the evening. We felt safe lettings the kids run free. There's no playground though.

There is only one toilet and one shower for men and the same for women but we didn't find it a problem. Owners have a fridge/freezer in the reception hut and you can exchange freezer blocks.

Bath is a short drive away and Bradford on Avon is very close. Definitely recommended.

We stayed at this site for 3 nights before going on to Cornwall.

The owner greeted us on arrival, showing us to our allocated pitch, which was opposite the enclosure housing a couple of friendly goats.

The pitch was level with ehu, and as it was a small site the water, waste water and toilet/shower facilities were all close by. We didn't use the showers but the toilets were clean and well stocked with loo roll. There was one toilet each for male/females.

Bradford on Avon is a pretty little town, although there's not much in the way of shops/restaurants. We cycled along the canal path into Bath for the day returning, with our bikes, by train for approx 4 each.

It was a lovely, peaceful site and good for a short stay.

Lets start with the positives first. The owners are very pleasant, after arriving shown pitch, then owners left for the night. They live 3 miles away, told any problems ring them, A young couple arrived who had a booking so rang them on the mobile number left on the shed, spent a hour doing this so just pitched up. So this goes to show that truthfully any major problems you are on your own, the site it is in the middle of countryside no houses around for about a mile.

Facilities there is just one shower and one toilet although clean each for men and ladies, in another shed type building. O. K. If campsite half empty, while we were there I counted in tents, caravans and their pods etc 32 people, so in the mornings leads to people queueing. A couple of sinks for washing up, no washing of clothes facilities ie. Sink to do hand washing or washing machines and another shed cum information leaflets etc. I felt the price was expensive bearing all this mind. I mentioned this to the owners who reduced my fee from 75 to 70 for the three nights. We are not the all singing and dancing type of people oap's but felt this site was overpriced for such basic facilities. Although the owner informed me that we are close to Bath.

Lovely little site with immaculate toilet and shower facilities, albeit it only one of each for both men and women. We stayed in a cosy, homely pod for three nights as part of a larger group which included two tents. All necessary items were included in the pod plus some - very kindly, we were left a complimentary bag of wood, marshmallows and skewers. Adrian, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful. The fire pits were a delightful touch, more bags of wood were available on site for a reasonable price. Setting was peaceful and rural without being isolated - we could walk to the Muddy Duck, a lovely not too posh gastro pub whose owners made our party of eight, including four children, very welcome. All in all, a super break, we will definitely return!

Would have given this 10 out of 10 but they are clearly always trying to improve! The campsite provides instant entry into another calmer more sedate world. Go here if you are looking for peaceful, friendly and happy environment. Its very easy to get to all local visitor attractions and there are shops and pubs fairly near by. I would love to make this little retreat a regular stop over. The family loved ending each day beside the fire pit.
