 This site was quite difficult to find, the entrance gate is set back from the Atherstone road, it identifies a stables and accommodation but gives no indication that there is a caravan site there. The access is by coded gate. You are encouraged to book online and pay by bank transfer. I was asked to predetermine which pitch I chose from an online map, which shows the pitches availble I tried ringing but got mainly an answer machine. I tried booking online and received an email confirming my PRELIMINARY booking. I Tried several times unsuccessfully to contact the site by phone. We arrived at the gate and I rang again to get the access code which I then got.

The pitches are large, flat, hardstanding and well spaced with water and electricity. There are two pitching areas adjacent to each other. The site is quiet and surrounded by fields with large grass centre areas.

The two toilet/showers are very clean and housed in the stables. These are quite a walk from some of the pitches. The nearby attractive market town of Atherstone is approximatly 2 miles away with markets Tuesday and Saturday. A couple of walks are identified in the information hut.

 Welcome – non-existent – this is like a CL – it is an ‘unattended’ site. There wasn’t even a sign from the road and it was only because I had spotted online that there were stables on site that I guessed “Atherstone Stables” was the place to go. There are no signs to tell you what to do when you arrive and if you do need help then it’s a case of waiting for the owner to respond hours later to voicemail. However, once you’ve got used to the site, it is a very pleasant site to stay on with no silly rules and a good community atmosphere with plenty of space.

Pitch – we had pitch 8 which had a south facing piece of grass and was fully serviced – plenty of space.

Environment – the area is quiet and well maintained.

Facilities – there are only 2 toilets and 2 showers but we never had to wait as this was plenty for the site. The problem was that it’s quite a walk to the toilet block. There is a laundry but other than this there are no other facilities.

Conclusion – we will come again now we have got familiar with the site.

 We stayed here to test drive our new caravan. The site is tidy and well maintained. The children enjoyed playing on the green area in the middle of the site. There was plenty of space for them to kick a ball about. The gravel was quite hard under foot, and my dogs struggled to walk on it. I haven't come across such an unforgiving gravel surface before and I've used plenty of sites with hard standing pitches.

The pitches are a good size and having a tap and drain at each pitch was handy.

We didn't use the on site facilities, so I can't comment on them.

The absence of a warden could be a problem if any issues arise. The loud music from another caravan and a straying dog were our only gripes.

It was nice being able to hear the farm animals on neighbouring fields, and I noticed that eggs can be ordered and delivered to your pitch.

Would I return? Probably not, although it's a decent enough site.

 We stayed here for 2 nights to try out our caravan. It is a lovely site with plenty of space for van, awning and car. In centre is large green area. We had electric hook up and water tap at pitch. The 2 showers and toilets are very clean and we did not have to wait to use them. Only criticism is I paid for the Wi-Fi but could not get connected.

Walk to Atherstone was enjoyable and the walk to local pub across fields was fun. The Bull Inn do very good meals and very friendly.

Our dog loved the river as is easy accessible and gradually deepens.

Overall a lovely peaceful site and recommend to anyone who wants a relaxing time.

 We stayed here for 2 nights to test our new caravan and what a lovely place. You are left to your own devices which is great and the pitches were extremely large and well marked with a coded security gate being the access. We had a pitch with water, electric and drainage so didn't experience the previous reviewers issues but I totally agree with them that having to empty a waste hog would be a bit of a struggle as I did empty my chemical waste there. The toilet cubicles (x2) and shower rooms (x2) were spotless and individual areas and very roomy. A nice big grass area for kids to play in in the centre and as long as you have considerate fellow campers will not cause an issue. Didn't go to the local pub but spent a couple of hours in Atherstone which is a lovely market town. A wonderful site in the countryside away from the hustle and bustle. We even had a visit from the ice cream van which on a sunny hot day (Yes we did have one) was a lovely touch. The only thing I would suggest is maybe a drive round or contact from the owner to check there are no issues during your stay. Already booked for another trip.

Reviewer: Oatlea 5 reviews from this member

 Just stayed here for 3 nights and loved the peace and quiet of the site and surrounding area. The site is only accessible by means of a security coded gate. The pitches are well laid out and clearly numbered which is helpful as there is no warden on site. There were one or two small criticisms though, the toilet facilities which although were totally spotless day and night were quite a walk from the campsite and the road leading to them was not very well lit at night. The only other criticism would be the lack of a warden on site meant we were unable to ask any questions such as where the waste water should be emptied. After asking a fellow caravanner we were told it should be emptied into the toilet waste, this turned out to be a toilet bowl next to the tourist information hut, that's fine but difficult to lift a 40lt waste water container onto. Some pitches had their own waste drains but not all. All in all a pleasant stay and would recommend.

 This site has moved on from the previous review. The showers/toilets are now FREE, with plenty of hot water, mirrors etc.

Lovely surrounding countryside, although you have to be careful when walking, as there are few pavements.

Had a quiet tipple at 'THE GATE', and the meals there seemed good value for money.

All pitches were excellent. Level with individual water facilities & plenty of room.

Would return if in the area again.

Reviewer: Percy on tour 49 reviews from this member

 Atherstone Stables is (as its name suggests) located in a pleasant equestrian setting on the Leicestershire/Warwickshire border, barely a mile out of town and yet cast in amidst a wide expanse of farms and fields.

Access is via keypad-operated electric gates - although more prominent signage outside on the main Atherstone Road would be helpful because it is too easy to sail past the site, with few places to turn around. In addition, if towing a caravan it is better to access Atherstone Stables via the B4116 and Pinwall Lane, rather than through the village of Witherley (where one can inadvertently take a wrong turn and end up a dead end).

The camping field has two dozen large hard-standing plots with plenty of room for car, caravan and awning, each plot with individual taps and 16-amp hook-ups (and many with individual drainage points). Horses roam the surrounding fields, their stable block playing host to the toilets, a coin-operated shower and a laundry room (inquisitive equine heads meanwhile observing folk going about their ablutions!).

While the facilities are heated, they are also rather basic (for example, the toilets lack essential touches like mirrors and towels/hand driers). In addition, £1. 00 for a shower seems a bit steep. The stable block is also quite a trek from the further recesses of the camping field. These niggles are the only thing that let the site down, fuelling the sense that the facilities appear to be intended more for the convenience of riders than campers. More centrally located is the elsan point, waste bins and a summer house in which can be found tourist information.

By and large, once you booked (and the owners were quite prompt in replying to my online enquiry) campers are left to their own devices, the owners patrolling around the camp twice a day in their 4x4 to keep an eye on things. Some of the caravans (including those occupying the plots with the individual drainage points) appear to belong to semi-permanent campers.

Once in possession of the gate keycode you can come and go as you please, and there are plenty of footpaths criss-crossing adjacent farmland to link the campsite to the neighbouring villages of Ratcliffe Culey and Sheepy Magna (although exploring these trails will require wellies to be worn in anything but the driest weather).

Out and about, Atherstone is a charming little market town, with plenty of pubs and eateries. There is a Co-op and an Aldi supermarket, as well as lots of small, independent shops. A Dobbies garden centre/retail outlet park is also nearby. Other shopping destinations within easy reach include Nuneaton, Hinckley and Tamworth. Birmingham, Coventry and Leicester are also within an hour's drive should the need arise for a more intensive retail therapy expedition. The site is also handy for Drayton Manor Theme Park, Bosworth Field and Mallory Park race circuit.

Atherstone Stables is good value for money at £15. 00 per night including hook-up (and with no 'additional adult' charges) in a part of the Midlands where there are plenty to things to see and do - ideal for that weekend break; or for an overnight stop if heading from the north-east to the south-west, being just over fifteen minutes away from the M42 Junction 10. With its ample hard-standing and high-ampage hook-ups it is also a superb winter camping destination.

 We have just returned from staying here for a couple of nights with our 2 children aged 3 and 6. We stayed here as we were visiting nearby Drayton Manor. The site is very nice and quiet, well kept and a good price at £15 per night with electric, water and drainage on pitch.

There is nothing for kids here other than a place to kick the ball about etc but that suited us fine as we wanted it quiet.

The toilet and showers were clean.

We would stay here again if we were to visit the area again!

Reviewer: BigMona 97 reviews from this member

 We stayed at this site for three nights and found it the most peaceful and relaxing site we have probably ever stayed on. Each pitch is hard standing many with there own water supply. The grounds were also well kept and the grass short. The toilets were a small walk from our pitch and although basic were clean. The walk into the local town took 20 minutes, here you will find an array of small shops and eateries. The cobbled market square is delightful to sit and watch the world go by why drinking a pint or two of local cask ale from one of the hostelries. Would return to one day.
