We arrived for a night with our new dog to make sure she was ok with camping. Site was very quiet, only us and 4 caravans. The field was well tended to and lots of room for us to pitch. The view was great and we positioned looking into the valley.
Not sure if we would have been put in the next field if it was busy, felt we were possibly in the caravan area.
Anyway toilet block was clean and tidy, no issues and very close by. There was also a sink area for washing up which had hot and cold water.
You had to walk across the road to get to the main site with the wigwams and showers, but it's not a busy road and not very far away. 20p for 5 mins in shower is more than enough and they were perfectly clean.
We were only there for a day, so did not scope out the surrounding area, but great walk for dog into village and the village has a nice shop and 2 pubs that looked nice. The play area is next door, but is for the local children, not private to the campsite.
Only 1 downside was that there seems to be a bmx track beside the campsite and that had kids in it till around 10pm, not an issue for us.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to other.
Had a 1 night stay at Mains Farm to try out our new tent, we took the opportunity when the sun was shining and decided to go not too far from home.
On arriving we found the site to be very friendly and the owners were very helpful. The views from the site were absolutely beautiful, it was lovely sitting out next to the camp fire which we had in our pit.
We took a walk with our dog and found that the football pitch and park were immediately behind the site which was very handy and just a short walk from there onto the main street where the shop is.
All in all a very good site which we will return to when we get some decent weather.
Spent one night at Mains Farm to introduce my son to camping.
Nice friendly welcome from the warden when we arrived. Surprised to have to pay for a 4 year old to stay in a tent, when the wigwam child prices start at 5 years old.
We were directed through the main campsite to what can only be described as a farmer's field. It seemed the main developed camping area is reserved for EHU only, the well cut grass and road stops and you end up in a field of agricultural grass, which although it had recently been cut the tractor had left huge tyre tracks and the cuttings had been left behind which restricted where to pitch and made it messy in the tent.
The facilities were basic, toilet block was adequate (only 1 quite open shower in the gents block), but no hot water in the dish washing area made cleaning up after eating difficult.
The site is in a nice location, handy for the Trossachs and Blair Drummond Safari Park, with spectacular views. I found it to be quite a noisy site, however, despite the 10pm no noise rule, which wasn't enforced.
It might be different if you were in the wigwams, but in a Tent with no EHU I wouldn't return.
Just back from 2 nights camping at Mains farm. The setting is beautiful and the views are completely spectacular. We camped in the non electric field. It's a fair walk to the showers (through a field and across a road) although there are toilets and a wash up area (with no hot water though so not much point) in the next field.
We had a nice flat pitch and the pitches are not marked which is great for those of us with huge tents. We paid only £15 (2 adults and 3 kids, under 3's go free) per night which is very reasonable, although I think appropriate as it's fairly basic.
There is also a good play park just beside it which the kids enjoyed. This would have been the best weekend's camping we have ever had but for one thing - the owners seemed to have rented out the next field along for a dog owners club convention/show. On the Saturday night they had a live band which was very loud and went on till just after 11pm - I realise this isn't too late but most of us go camping for peace and quiet and to get away from it all and this put an end to our peaceful evening. By 1030 pretty much the entire campsite had retired for the night and presumably most, like us, had to lie awake listening to shouting, music and howling dogs until 1:30 am.
Added to that, the toilets were in some state. There was no loo roll left by the end of the evening and first thing in the morning there was no loo roll or paper towels, rubbish stuffed down the toilets and one was broken. I checked all 4 and none were usable - yuck! When we left the campsite at 1030 it was still the same.
What a shame the owners didn't make an extra effort to clean them considering all the extra people using the facilities. Having said all that I would still recommend it, mainly because of the incredible setting and reasonable price, but just check when booking that nothing like this is going on while you will be there - we are disappointed we weren't told this when we booked as we would not have gone.
Luckily we went with some brilliant friends and all the kids had a ball anyway.
Spent 2 nights in the EHU field of this site recently. The set up of the site means this is over a public road from the main site where the wigwams/showers/reception is. On the camping side of the road there are toilets in container blocks and a shelter with sinks for cleaning dishes. These are in poor condition, not well maintained and we witnessed no cleaning (this much was obvious from the state of he floors etc) The pitches themselves had incredibly long grass and were muddy and difficult to pitch on. By the time we had been there 2 days it was like a swamp. I acknowledge that the weather has been very wet but we all felt the lack of pitch maintenance contributed to this significantly. The shower blocks are in converted farm buildings, though not inadequate they are full of spiders webs on the ceilings. 20p gives a 5 minute shower with enough hot water.
There is a playpark adjacent to the camping field but I believe this to be the town park, not a private facility owned by the site, it was certainly used by all the local children.
Site is close to Blair Drummond Safari park and a small village with a very small shop. Great views from the camping field.
To summarise. Could be a lovely little campsite with a whole lot more TLC and effort.
Brilliant camp site, pitches are a great size. Lovely views over the hills stunning.
Owners are lovely and so helpful, popping round to make sure all is ok both evenings.
Lovely dog walk that takes you through the fields and into the village.
Toilets were lovely and clean with great hot water, showers are great as well but bit off a queue in the morning.
We do not have children however this site would be very safe for them, there is loads off room for them to run around and a fantastic play park just at the back off the campsite with no roads for them to cross.
Lovely hotel/ bar in the village that does lovely food and at a good price also a great wee village shop selling everything you would need.
Enclosed fire pits are allowed as long as they are raised off the ground, you can buy a massive pack off logs and firefighters for £5.
Gem off a site, cant wait till we return.
Everyone was so friendly think the relaxed attitude off the owners rubs off on everyone.
Site was busy but by 11 pm there was complete silence till morning.
