We spent 9 nights here. The pitches are huge and kept very tidy. The whole site is quiet and clean and well looked after. The lovely lady who owns it was very welcoming and helpful. The toilets were always clean and it was nice to know there was a washing machine on site if we needed it. We loved that there was a water supply for each pitch! No need to keep refilling the aqua roll. Had a brilliant time with the dogs as plenty of fields to walk over. Access was also very easy from the a120 dual carriage way. Was good value for money at 15 a night and no extra cost for the dogs or awning. Will definitely stay again!

We fancied a couple of nights away and didn't want to travel too far so this site fitted the bill. The site was initially full but the owner kindly emailed me to let me know they had received a cancellation. The camping area was lovely with a super view and we ended up with it all to ourselves. The facilities are basic but very nicely done, perfectly clean and obviously cared for. A must is a visit to the local air field which has a bar open to the public and was a perfect spot to enjoy a drink.

A lovely little adults only site. Very basic but that is exactly what we look for in a site - a perfect get-away from crowds of people and unruly children. (I do like kids - honestly; I am a primary school teacher but it's nice to have a break from them 😀)

As others have stated, there aren't any showers and there is only the one toilet. There is also a small laundry room which wasn't used at all in the time we were there. Personally, I think this would be better converted to a shower room as it would be of more use. However, just having a 'wash down' was fine for us for the weekend. They did run out of toilet paper early on the Sunday morning though and there was nobody around to ask for a replacement. Luckily, we had our own!

Each of the 9 large pitches is hard standing and positioned around 2 edges of a central field. The sheep were on the 3rd side of the field. Although there are 9 pitches, it appears that 4 of them are for permanent caravans (one belonging to an employee). When we stayed we literally had the place to ourselves as we only saw the employee once when we arrived (she collects the money and feeds the sheep) and the other 'permanent' caravans weren't actually occupied that weekend. We were quite happy with just sheep for company 😀. We did see the owner on arrival - a bright, cheerful young lady who made sure we were ok but who was obviously busy working and so we didn't see her again. It would have been nice to have a choice of hard-standing or grass as we prefer to sit outside our folding camper and the hard-standing made this uncomfortable. However, we just set up our table and chairs on a grassy patch a short distance away from the pitch so not really a problem. There is also a small, covered deck area that I think is for the use of campers.

Each pitch has its own water supply so no trudging any distance with heavy water containers.

There is a lovely barn complex just 5 minutes down the road (Blake House) which has a wide range of small craft and food units. There is also a lovely restaurant housed in the complex called Timbers which serves the best steak I have ever eaten. Next door to the actual camp site is the Gallery In The Garden which exhibits the work of 'contemporary British artists' and also has a large tea room attached. We didn't visit this but it looked very impressive from the outside.

All-in-all, a lovely, basic get away. A perfect antidote to the stress of everyday life.

What a great adult only site ! There are no showers but did not bother us in the slightest, there is a toilet and washroom with washing machine that is spotless all the time, it is so peaceful and quiet perfect for a relaxing weekend break, there is a dog walk just outside the site, the 2 sisters that manage the site are very helpful, and willing to answer any questions if you have any. A really nice touch is the 'help yourself to the herbs' garden. Would definitely go back again.

We have stayed at Golden Grove on a number of occasions when working in the area. It is very handy for family that live locally. All the pitches are hard standing and level. Lots of water points and hook ups. The site is lovely and quiet and very relaxed. Louise is very accommodating and nothing is too much trouble. Pitches are very generous, with lots of room for an awning and car parking. Lots of local walks for dogs. The site is very dog friendly. We like the location but you will need transport/bike for shops and pubs etc. I would thoroughly recommend the site. If your pitching an awning, make sure you bring your rock pegs! The one off pitch fee makes it very simple. Toilet kept spotless. Local information on site with a small washing machine but no dryer. Overall, great!

Coming from Holland we stayed just 1 night on our way to Wales. A lovely site, not easy to find (we were first at the site just before Golden Grove). No showers, but since we stayed 1 night it was not a problem. Although I can imagine we would not have stayed for a longer term because of the lack of showers.

Nice cosy toilet block, lots of flowers, pick your herbs. Absolutely friendly.

Our only problem: we could not pay with our bankcard.
