First time here and came highly recommended. We thought it was a lovely site. Good things: Very easy to get to not far from main road and motorway but not much traffic noise at all. Facilities were sparkling clean all the time. Decent loos & showers. Nice pitches, well looked after. Meridian is close nice tiny place good tea room & nice enough butchers. Took the obligatory photo at the geographical heart of England. Lovely setting for the site, pretty & I am sure when all the leaves are out it will be like being in a forest dale. Friendly owner/warden.

Things that niggled; Bins are a long walk away if you are at the bottom of the site. Motorhome top up/ dump out area is not off the road so if a motorhome is busy then you have to wait. We had to wait 10 mins on arrival behind one until we got to our pitch. Toilet floor when mopped was slippy & I had walking trainers on. No seat in shower & if like me that makes drying & dressing hard bit of a shame.

But overall a lovely site and we'll be back.

We visited this site to visit the nec caravan and camping show would highly recommended to anyone going to the nec.

Birmingham town centre was just a short drive

The facilities was spotlessly clean staff was was more then helpful

Next time would book a fully serviced pitch.

Thanks for a great stay Jack & Linda

We had a friendly reception on arrival, though I felt the charge of 8 for 3 days slow wi fi connection was a rip off. It was disappointing that the office didn't even sell milk or bread, as it was a good 15 minute walk into local shops.

The site was very pleasantly set out, but not a scenic view as it was a flat landscape.

The major disappointment was the toilet block. This was meant to be heated, but the heating was only on for 3 hours twice a day. This was not sufficient in the Winter weather, and it didn't feel warm when you walked in. The gap under the external door and lack of vestibule didn't help either. However, the showers were good: not push buttons, a wide shower head, and a good flow of hot water. A seat in the shower cubicle would have been welcome, though there were plenty of hooks.

I didn't understand why there were so many notices telling us that we weren't allowed to leave our dog unattended in the motorhome. This seemed like unecessary rule making, and sets the wrong tone for me.

The Heart of England club in Meriden was a great place to watch the rugby and football on TV on the Sunday afternoon. It was very friendly, and the drinks and food (hearty pie and chips), were very reasonably priced.

We didn't have an OS map with us of this area, and the maps in the information cabin were old and faded. Many attractions are a short drive away, and once we have camped we prefer not to move the van again, so there wouldn't be enough in this area to attract us for a second visit.

Just returned from a three night stay with the intention of visiting Coventry for the first time. This site is perfectly placed for both Birmingham and Coventry, with a 25 minute walk to the village giving access to the half-hourly bus service to both cities.

We were impressed with both the location and the facilities. Good sized hard standing pitches, a well maintained site, and good facilities to boot.

Not too attractive in a damp, grey midwinter as you can imagine, but plenty of open countryside adjacent despite its location between the two conurbations.

The staff obviously work hard to keep up the standard, and it shows.

Add the local amenities and its proximity to the NEC - ideal.

This is a very well kept adults only campsite, the toilet & shower facilities are immaculate and the wardens were friendly and very helpful, The site is situated in a heavily wooded area therefore there is an abundance of wildlife however it is quite dark due to being surrounded by large trees, Meriden village is about a mile up the road (which is quite busy although there is a footpath), the village has a convenience store, a couple of pubs and an excellent Chippy. It is very well situated being only 4 miles from the NEC complex and Birmingham Airport (you can hear the planes taking off but its not obtrusive) and Hampton in Arden train station is only 2 miles away. Will definitely use this site again.

Just returned from a wonderful relaxing break at friendly Somers Wood and what a lovely site it is. The site and pitches are very well kept and we found the pitches particularly spacious. Toilets, showers and dishwashing area all kept spotless. Fish and chip shop in Meriden about a mile away is excellent (the mushy peas are beautiful and not the usual slop). We didn't get chance to try the Bulls Head, but we did pop in to view the menu and it looked very good. Dog walking area straight off site down an old disused lane is very handy, just a shame that some people can't be bothered to pick up after their dogs, even though there is a dog waste bin provided right at the gate into/out of the site, so watch where you're walking after dark! We liked this place so much (and the fact it is less than 20 miles away from where we live) we are already planning our next visit here. Many thanks to all the staff for keeping everywhere so lovely.
