Reviewer: Geecrossbird 1 review from this member

 My boyfriend and I have just returned from Charity Farm after a three night stay.  We were staying in a tent and were both really impressed with the site.  The site is well organised with labelled fields and numbered pitches.  The toilets were spotless, they must have been cleaned a few times a day, as whenever I had left mud prints and grass on the floor from my shoes, it had been cleaned and mopped by my next visit.  The showers were also very clean and were nice and warm; you also get a lot of hot water for your money (compared with other sites). 
The local pub is nice for a posh meal in its restaurant area, a bar snack or just a drink.  We also had an evening in Eccleston which is just 2 miles up the road.  We spent two days fishing on the ponds on the site.  There was a wide choice of ponds and pegs and the pegs were well maintained.  The countryside and surrounding nature / wildlife was lovely to relax in.  When we were there in May, there were lots of ducks and geese about, with little baby ducklings/goslings which were nice to watch playing in the water.
My boyfriend is a keen fisherman and he caught quite a few fish at Charity Farm including a large tench which he described as 'a specimen!'.  I was quite happy to relax with my magazines and enjoy doing nothing! We have already planned to return to Charity Farm in a few weeks, I think it may become a regular little retreats for us to get away and relax in the country.

 Have just returned after a 3 night stay, 2 of which our 3 grandchildren stayed with us. Electric hook up, awning plus extra child, £46.00. Had a great time. Fred, the owner was very helpful.
Some beautiful walks in the area. Free access to walk in all of the Farm fields, many of which are set out for cross country events. Birds, sheep & horses in abundance. Our grandchildren loved every minute of it.
Toilets & washing facilities free Showers 50p very clean. Well stocked vending machines with  microwave facility.
Will be going back again.

 Stayed at this camp site for the very first time, found it by looking on the Internet. First impressions very nice and big. We were put in a large field with plenty of space between one another.
The toilet facilities and showers were good, (50p to use showers). They also had washing up facilities and a vending machine with snacks. There were also several fishing ponds to use for a price, in which we didn't use. Plenty of horses, but they are not inbounds to visit in the stables but they are in the fields daily.
The site hasn't a play ground for the children to play on but there is space in the fields to play. A local pub a 10min walk which has a beer garden. We enjoyed our visit and will be coming back and recommending to friends.

 Spent some days here around New Years Eve. Excellent planned pitches with hard standings + grass aside, good, spotlessly clean toilet block with hot showers (50p). A peaceful, countryside place,mostly for people interested in horsing, fishing and walking (with the dog probably). Liked the place, especially as the pub (Brookhouse Inn,10 min walk away) had excellent food and bar. Like to come back here.

Reviewer: Pajcaul 6 reviews from this member

 Having read the good reviews, we looked forward to visiting the site but were disappointed. We were given no choice of where to site and simply told to 'go over there'.  This was close to the chemical disposal point.  We found it quite expensive for a basic site, as we had to pay extra for being in a trailer tent, extra for our small awning and 50p each for a shower on top of the site fees.  The toilets were very clean but the shower that my daughter went into had an old razor on the floor and needed cleaning.
The vending machine milk chocolate that we bought was white coated and the biscuits gone off although well within date.  The other facilities in the vending machine area were OK.  
There were no facilities for children which we knew before arriving but we had read in other reviews that there was somewhere to play.  This was not the case when we were there. There were rules about not playing ballgames on the caravan/camping area, which we agree with , but others ignored this and nothing was done.
All in all we would not go back to the site.

 Just been back to this campsite for the second time and it was just as good as the first!

Very quiet site, with two good fields for tents, the pitches are well enough apart and electric hook-up is readily available.

The shower/toilet blocks were kept immaculately clean all the time we were there and the snack shop, although being self service vending machines, was well equipped and clean.

There are a few really nice walks around the site, there are a number of fishing lodges there too and the local pub that provides excellent food, is only a couple of hundred yards down the road.

Oh yeah, the owner was constantly smiling and happy to be of help as well! I loved it!

 What a lovely site, in the countryside. loved it here and would recommend it to anybody who has a love the the country. It is on a working farm and so is particularly good if you like animals (horses in particular). There is 4 good sized fishing ponds which is priced at £5.00 per day. Good clean toilet and shower block and a canteen which has vending machines serving coffee, tea hot chocolate, together with sweets and crisp & pop and then another vending machine that has biscuit's, cereal, pot noodles etc (very good idea). The owner is very nice and friendly and makes you feel right at home. would recommend to anybody of all ages although not much for children unless they are into fishing.

 Just arrived home after experiencing our VERY FIRST camping excursion, along with eight other families. We were due to stay at a campsite in Filey, but because of extremely high winds and poor weather, we had to come home again. We found this campsite and contact the owner to see if he would accommodate such a large group and he was superb from start to finish.

We paid £8 per night/per tent for the first two people, plus £2 for each person after. The two days/one night stay there for my wife, twin girls, myself and my dog cost us a mere £12!

"Farmer Fred" pre-warned us of how basic his site was, but it was perfect for us! He even went to the lengths of providing a field so that we could all play rounders, without annoying any of the other campers.

The facilities were immaculately clean! The shower blocks are modern as are the toilets and there is a shop containing vending machines where you can purchase any necessities that you may need! Overall, the weekend has been one of the most enjoyable ones ever for me and even though this was my first taste of camping, I will be returning very soon to farmer Fred and the charity Farm campsite! Thank you!

 What an excellent site. Stayed for 2 nights in our trailer tent cost £12 a night with electric hook-up. Although no facilities for children plenty of room for them to play in the fields as you pitch round the perimeters. Shower, toilet and utility facilites were very clean. Had a block with a couple of vending machines in. Had 4 ponds to fish on which cost £5 per day. Owner very helpful and friendly.

Local pub worth a visit although a bit pricey. Village nearby has supermarket and only a couple of minutes drive.

Will be visiting again!
