Nice and quiet site, well it was November! Some level hard standing pitches with hook up in the top field, slightly sloping in the lower field. This is a working farm and the owners welcome your interest in the various goings on on the farm. There are chickens, geese and even turkeys, as well as a herd of about 60 milking cows. Nice showers that take 20p coins, but overall this site is very good value for money.

2 good pubs that serve food less than 1 mile away. In the summer this would be a nice walk.

If only it had rained a bit less when we were there!

Just got back from 3 nights at this site. Wet, windy and muddy, but great fun. Don't forget your wellies. Kids thoroughly enjoyed it and want to know when we can go back! Beautiful views, well maintained toilet blocks with nice hot showers, polite and friendly welcome from all there. Kids loved the farm animals, especially the calves and thought it was great that the collected the eggs that they then bought. 1. 25 for 1/2 dozen eggs, money well spent. We had a friendly cat in the awning rather than chickens, which was brave as we took the dog! Would certainly recommend this site and would love to go back next year, maybe around lambing time.

Well as this is my first time camping as a mum and my daughters first camping ever, I am very impressed! The site itself it well laid out with plenty of space for everyone. We managed to be near the new toilet block at the bottom of the main field and they were well looked after.

We participated in every milking and all who were there had time for you and didn't worry too much about answering my barrage of questions (inquiring minds!) the cows have some fantastic personalities and are so adorable. The milking sessions can be enjoyable (if you like to muck in!) with expert guidance you can feed them and herd them to there field once done.

Whilst we visited a calf had been recently born and was a bubbly little thing! Hens roam freely most of the afternoon so be prepared for tents/caravan visitors like it or not!

The owners have a nice little shop selling the cheese which their milk is used to make! Also they have frozen meats and if the chickens are not too traumatised by the children playing near them then you can get some fresh eggs! There are two turkeys, some geese and a couple of rabbits that you can see and if the son is around you may be able to get a closer look.

The cost of our stay was extremely reasonable and I won't hesitate in coming again and again or as often as I can

Just returned from a 4 night stop at West Middlewick Farm and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. The owners are very friendly and helpful and do all they can to make visitors feel involved in what goes on at the farm. Young children will have a wonderful time here helping to feed the animals, collect eggs and even helping to herd the cattle from the milking shed back to their field - it's a million miles away from tv and computer games. I would recommend this site whether or not you have kids, just for the friendly relaxed experience. You have to remember it's a working farm so don't expect fancy holiday-park facilities. The toilet blocks were kept clean all the time we were there but of course kids are going to trample mud from the farmyard around in poor weather - nothing the owners can do about that. Can't really comment on the surrounding area as we only left the site once and that was to go to the shop in the village of Witheridge about a mile up the road, pleasant village with picturesque pub. We are already looking forward to a return visit to this site.

Just come back from a very cold 3 nights at middlewick and cannot wait to go back. Our 10 year old loved it. It is a working farm so if you don't like getting dirty and don't like the smell of cow poo this isn't for you, but for us it was excellent. Our son got to see the cows being milked and the farmer's wife let my son feed the cows before they were milked. Then they showed him how to feed the calves who were very cute and like to suck on your coat pockets. There are free range chickens all around.

There is a new toilet block in the camping field which is great also has washing up area. Further up by the farm is the shower blocks. Women's takes 20p and 40p was enough for a good shower.

We went to the pub up in nomansland called mount pleasant inn really nice food. There is a local shop in witheridge for basic bit and bobs. Can't wait for a return visit in the summer when hopefully the weather will be warmer.

We spent 2 nights here on our 'road-trip' down to Cornwall in our Volkswagen Camper 'Vera'. The cost of 10 per night was the original deciding factor and it was a pleasant surprise that it was such a lovely place. Fantastic views and lovely owners.

We were met by the owner who explained that they had a newly completed toilet/wash-up block at the bottom of the main field. He offered us hook-up on hardstanding next to the block. As it was very quiet on the site, we felt like they were our own personal toilets! They are certainly a substantial and well built block. He explained that they still only had the shower block next to the house, but that he had a new block planned.

We used the showers which run on 20p pieces. 60p gave a good shower. A hairdryer is also available, again 20p. We also used the industrial sized washer and dryer. The washer was a little awkward to use, but John explained how to do it. 5 is needed for the wash and about the same for a full load in the dryer - comparable with launderettes. We didn't mind paying for showers etc. As the basic pitch and hook-up was so cheap.

We didn't have anything to do with the farm, but did have visits from the chickens in the afternoons! There were no children staying on the site but we could see that there was a lovely area for them to play in the middle of the field.

We checked out the lodges which look lovely and also had a look at the 2 Pods that they have in the lower field - these are like wooden tents with TV, double futon and stretcher bed.

All in all, this is a lovely site and we intend to return.
