I am pitched here as I write this. The 5-pitch members-only CL is just off J16 of the M5, on the A38 heading north to Gloucester. The CL is next to a number of commercial business units, all very neat and tidy, on a farm that is very handy for being near to Bristol, if you have a car or can order a taxi, or have a bicycle. I did see some buses going from Gloucester to Bristol. When booking, have your Club membership number ready.

The site itself is well managed, with friendly owner Oakleigh, or his colleague Jeff, to be found in the adjacent Bristol Caravans show room and office.

Facilities include hook-up, water tap with adaptor for hose connection, and a chemical cassette disposal point; there are two handy rubbish containers nearby as well. Late arrivals can pick up their booking envelope and put CASH in it, then drop it into a secure posting box next to the visitor info point. Good TV signal, and adequate 4G on O2 network.

Best bonus. Bird watching! I saw fieldfare, bull finches, song throughsh and some very cheeky magpies.

Lovely well organised and laid out site. There are in fact two separate pitching areas so of course we went to the wrong one. Our own fault, the signs clearly told us what to do, we just didn't see the signs being that busy looking everywhere else. Envelope system means you don't have to worry if there's nobody around when you arrive. Lovely big pitches, separated by high hedges giving total privacy which is a particular favourite with me. Hard standing down middle of each pitch with nicely mown lawned area either side so plenty of room. The pitches are that big that we were able to leave the car hooked up to the van as we were only overnighting, anything for an easy life. Easy access being just over a mile from J16/M5 so perfect stopover if travelling to/from Devon/Cornwall which is exactly what we're doing. EHU but no loo or shower. All this for 14 pn, can't be bad.

You arrive at Hortham Farm by entering the drive way after passing through a gate code needed after 8, 00pm. You then arrive at a board which says stop it then tells you to walk 100yds and pick up an envelope and then walk back to your car, but this day which was very hot, there was no envelope, after a telephone call and a wait a man arrived and gave us the envelope which informed us to go to Wood View. On arrival there another gate and another coded lock with a chain and we were told this gate must be locked every time we went through it, I do not know how any of the emergency services would get to the site during the night. This is a working farm, plus caravan sales, plus caravan workshop, plus caravan accessories which leaves them with not a lot of time for the CL site. Will not be going again

Used this site for an overnight stop on our way to Devon. Excellent position for leaving and accessing the motorways. Could hear the motorways in distance but not enough to disturb our sleep. Very friendly manager. No facilities so would not advise staying for more than a couple of days unless you have good on board facilities. Access to woodland and oodles of space for play and exploration.

Reviewer: Keefysher 15 reviews from this member

This was our first use of a CL, and meets everything we had learned of CL's. We arrived in a heavy storm, pitched up, connected the hook up and settled in. The owner, a gentleman farmer, popped in to ensure everything was ok. The booking process had been simplicity itself, directions superb, together with the instructions for the envelope system. Easy.

We had 2 comfortable nights. The water tap was pointed out to fill the waterhog, drain was to the grass area. The chemical disposal point was sufficient for the purpose.

Access to our family in nearby area was simple using the back lanes.

We had a fish and chip supper in the caravan one night, from the nearby Bradley Stoke chip shop, superb quality and massive portions.

We will use this CL, well 2 actually, Wood View and Farm View in the future for our visits to family.

Expectations exceeded.

Small, well looked after site. Pitches large and separated by shrubs for privacy. Close to major routes so some traffic noise. However, this did not detract from our stay and is far outweighed by the ease of onward travel.

Small wood nearby which is perfect for dog walking.

Useful information provided in hut. Booking in system and directions to site are very precise an easy to follow.
