Stayed at this site so we could visit relatives that live nearby. On booking in and paying we were told of the site rules and told firmly that we were not to drive on the grass. Fare enough till you realise that the pitch is rather difficult to get onto as they are opposite one another and caravan cars are often parked across the hitch end of their van as awnings are also not allowed on the grass area. It seems nothing was allowed onto the grass area and on putting up our quest screen house to store my aunts mobility scooter we had to have a photograph sent to the owner who was away for confirmation that we could keep it up. The option was the awning safari room which would not have fitted onto the hard standing and had to go onto the grass which was also not allowed. Every caravan that turned up during our 5 day stay had to unhitch and use a motor mover to get onto the pitch. If you never had one you were pushing the van which was not easy for one elderly couple. The showers on this site are the best I have used, loads of hot water, clean warm and spacious. No timer button to keep pushing and no coin operation either. Pipped music from the radio and use of a hair dryer. The walk from our pitch to the showers was a little difficult as the lighting at night is poor down the very far end of the site and I managed to leave my torch at home! 1 dog is allowed but additional dogs are charged for. I never used the washing up or laundry facilities so cant comment but found the walk to the site entrance in order to dispose of the rubbish from our pitch at the very bottom of the site rather difficult due to mobility problems. A waste bin mid way would have been ideal. I ended up using the mobility scooter! Wifi and satellite TV had to be purchased and I did not do this but had I started to pay for these extras I would be looking at the cost of a Premier Inn and getting my bed made and bin emptied! I loved the fact it was adults only and was peaceful. Would I stay here again? Probably not. But I didn't need all the facilities this place offered and would have gone for a lower budget allowing me to stay longer somewhere for the same budget.

This adults only site is ideal for RV's and larger rigs with several pitches in a separate area near the entrance with easy access and good for manoeuvring.

It is within easy walking distance of two golf courses and about a mile away from the local shops and pubs - albeit quite a boring walk along a busy road into Meriden - where you can also catch a bus to the NEC. The lovely site is surrounded by mature trees, so pick your pitch according to sun or shade. The disabled and main facilities are very good. The toilets have a good flush, showers with glass doors (no curtains) and very clean, but take a torch with you if you make nocturnal visits!

Ideal wash up and laundry area in a bright spacious section (not open air) and staff very friendly and helpful. Internet purchase available but only works on one device at a time, extension cable available for electric on deposit and Sky TV lead can be hired or purchased as we could not get a TV signal on our own rig.

Coventry motor museum is a must visit - it is free and had some lovely old exhibits and a decent bistro attached. Waitrose at Solihull - a pleasant drive away near to lots of trendy eateries.

Nice friendly site, entrance easy to overshoot when arriving for the first time using sat-nav so beware. Nicely laid out and all amenities near by, dog friendly with dog walk nearby. Used as a overnight stop to and from Wales. Easy access to NEC from here.

Writing this while we are still here! Fantastic site. Private family run site. Very friendly and immaculate.

Ticks every box for us and we will definitely be returning.

We visited this site in May of last year and found this to be a wonderful site to be on. The grounds were very tidy the washrooms and toilets immaculate. We are at the moment trying to work some dates out so that we can return. It is a site you could tell you friends about, its brilliant for us as from storage to site was 40 mins. Ok there is very little in Meriden itself but its not far to travel for places of interest. Have read other reviews and the only one if it was anything to moan about which it isnt its the aircraft from Birmingham Airport. It didn't bother us.

This was our second visit to Somers Wood and the plus points are that it is easy to get to from the motorway, has good facilities and they are clean on the whole and the pitches are a mixture of hard standing & grass and good size. EHU only, apparently there are some serviced pitches but only a couple.

Yes you hear a slight hum of traffic and of aircraft going to Birmingham airport but that aside our visit was not the peaceful and quiet experience we had last time. Out of their control obviously, but there was a very loud party with loud live music, I assume coming from the golf club from 4:00 Saturday afternoon until midnight.

As ever there were a lot of vans with dogs which I don't have a problem with unless the owners don't obey the park rules or have very noisy dogs. Sadly we had that situation. One couple in a motor home didn't seem to bat an eyelid when their large dog with a very loud bark kept barking and then did so at 6:00am on two morning on and on.

Another couple in a caravan seemed to think the rules about keeping their dog on a lead at all times didn't apply to them. It was another large dog who wandered. It went over to the pitch next to it and barked at the couple there who looked quite frightened. Even then they didn't put it on a lead, the woman owner just said he's saying hello. She had such a loud voice everything she said carried across the park, especially when she decided to have a conversation with a caravan 4 pitches away and just sat on her pitch shouting. Later on her dog went to the back of the next pitch again and poohed which the owners clearly saw. Did the owners do anything? No! Both incidents were reported but nothing was done. In addition the wardens were around the park by these people's pitch and clearly saw the dog off the lead and said nothing. We were opposite them and didn't like it at all.

Something had changed on this site since the last time we visited as there seemed to be a lack of care from the wardens about the important site rules and it wasn't unkempt but just not as tidy as last time.

We visited Stratford on Avon & I would recommend if you want to do that go to the Park & Ride. We went to Meriden for the Co-op and it has a spa too. However that's really it. The chippy is ok. Sad to see the ancient cross, minus the cross, marking the exact middle of England looks so tatty. We had a Chinese Takeaway ordered from the menu recommended on the welcome sheet and delivered. Don't be tempted it really wasn't a good one and the next day both hubby & I had upset tummies.

This site has always been clear that you must not put a wheel of any vehicle on the grass, fair enough, but they have also installed some poles to press home the point. On a couple of the pitches those poles prevent reversing in. In fact if you don't have a motor mover you'd have to unhitch the van and push.

All in all we had an ok stay but it felt like we had come to different place than last time which is a shame as it was in our top 5 sites. Would we go again? Maybe if there was something on at the NEC but I doubt for any other reason. I think for 26 per night it's value for money has dropped.
