It's been a few ears since I was last here, however nothing has changed and is still as awesome as it always has been.

I enquiried on email and received a swift reposnse with details on what to do on arrival. We drove straight on to the field and phoned the mobile number given as we arrived out of office hours and a cha in his car was over to us shortly after to take our 8 per adult fee and 5 for a bag of logs and kindling.

Fires must be in the pre-dug fire pits and we pitched the camper vans either side of the pit.

The showers are basic in a portacabin, however they were warm, clean and perfectly useable, although the water pressure was a little low. The toilets are portals on the fields and there were clean, well stocked and did the job. There is fresh water on each field.

The Fox and Hounds in Uffington is about 1. 5 miles walk away and serves a great selection of drinks and although we did not eat there, the menu looked early good.

There are footpaths aplenty from the site and we walked straight form the site to the Ridgeway and shortly after was at the famous White Horse. We then continued along the Ridgeway to Waylands Smithy.

This is a peaceful site and I would most definitely recommend this to anyone and will certainly be back time and time again as I love the are and the site.

We stayed 2 nights with our 2 boys aged 7 and 4 plus our friend and her daughter aged 6. There were lots of kids in the campsite all playing on the open spaces and hills, with balls and water and chase, great fun. Other campers were very friendly. Enjoyed having a fire too.

We were too hot and we didn't have much shade where we camped, we were also on a slope but we chose it and were fine with that, we also had the most open and beautiful views.

The area was great for us, country walking and the kids loved the chalk horse and dragons hill with blood stains. They talked about it for ages.

A bit of a walk to showers but passes little farm animals on the way, all charming. The owners were very helpful and friendly.

Showers were mixed, one fine, others the temperature oscillated from freezing to too hot.

I would recommend this site.

Likes:

We phoned ahead on the day and rocked up in the evening as backpackers from the Ridgeway. Chose the largest, least densely populated field (the others were PACKED!). Hard to find a truly level spot but managed to. Bought some wood for a fire and all was good. However, as per many other reviews of this site on the net, we also found the clientele to be somewhat lacking with some pretty rough groups and late night partying, music, drunk singing matches etc. Don't know if it's the location that attracts them, or the way the site it managed but that many mentions of it on reviews spanning many years clearly indicates a pattern. So be warned.

Dislikes:

-Nice location near White Horse hill

-Open fields, pitch where you like

-Campfires allowed

Dislikes:

-Rough punters up all night drinking and shouting

-Site rules not enforced by management and no way of contacting them at night

-5 min walk along road with no pavement for a shower, wash or rubbish disposal if in big field

-Portaloo numbers not adequate for number of campers

-Management appear a bit 'jaded' but probably sick of dealing with the rough punters!

We stayed here a few years ago and as we were in the area and needed somewhere to stay so we decided to pitch up here again. We couldn't see any signs at any of the fields about instructions on where/how to book in and remembered that last time we were here they came round to collect site fees and sell fire wood in the evenings so weren't worried. About half an hour later the owner came in his car and wasn't happy that we 'hadn't booked in ahead' They don't seem to recognise that tourers actually tour and sometimes/mainly stop places adhoc - on tour! We paid our expensive 14 with smiles however. The porta loos weren't very clean (some quite horrid!) - they may have been busy over the weekend but no-one came to clean them in the morning either. The main facilities down the main road by the farm are basic but clean enough. I do think 14 for porta loos and a water tap and basic facilities a good walk down the main road is a bit steep considering you can get sites with similar facilities for about 10 and sites with far superior facilities for the same price (also in the Cool Camping book which might be why they feel they can charge more). That said the views are beautiful and apart from the road is very peaceful and a great walk to the White Horse nearby. A lot of the field is on a slope but plenty of room to negotiate a levelish bit. I realise the fields are quite spread out and maybe a pain for the owners to check them regularly hence why they get upset when people like us just pitch up, but hey, that's their business! It is situated in a lovely part of the country though.

Rang en route and left message on answerphone. No return call (until the next day) but arrived to see a mobile number on the reception door so managed to book in on the spot. Opted for no hook up as that field seems very uneven, so shared large field with just one other unit. Lovely views, great walks. Portaloos were immaculate (not normally my favourite). Some fun looking tepees on the same field. Great for a one night stopover.

Just spent the weekend here on a meet.

Arrived at the farm reception and was told I should have booked, oops. Not that they were that busy but it was something to do with the number of Port-a-loo requirements.

Was told which field to go to, as well as info on the showers and the local area.

It should be noted that of the 5? fields, none of them are very flat.

The 1st field on the Swindon side of the farm is flattish lower down but you lose the view.

You can also walk up to the White Horse from this field, from the gate walk diagonally to the right. At the top corner is a gate which comes out by the cattle grid. Walk up the road.

At the bottom of the field by the gate were 1/2 doz loo's well stocked with paper and sanitizer and clean.

Worth noting that if you are pitched at the top end it's a good 5-6 min walk (depends how desperate you are) Some drove cars down. This field has 3 water taps but could be a bit of a walk depending on your pitch.

The only fields that are close to the showers are the 2 on the other side of the road opposite the farm. From the other fields it's a bit of a trek and a walk on the road which can be busy.

I cannot comment on the main facilities as I didn't use them.

Landy comes round late afternoon selling Fire Wood and Kindling at 5 per plastic Sack. The wood was dry and lasted well.

We did have an Ice Cream Van come round late afternoon.

There is a NO NOISE policy after 11pm which a few of the campers ignored, talking loudly and playing music till 01:45 on sunday.

You are advised by the owner if there are problems, to ring the Police on 101.

There are no child facilities except for plenty of space.

Nearest big shops are at Wantage (6-7 miles). Sainsbury's Argos B&M and a few more are on a new complex just off the Market Place with free ! parking for 2 hrs. There is also a Waitrose.

Swindon about 11 miles the other way.
