I reviewed this site when we visited last year. Not much has changed with the site itself, it still has the mown pitches in a meadow of long grass, still has decent facilities and you can still have campfires. The one difference I did note was how busy it was, although as we were there on a weekend in the school holidays I suppose it is to be expected.

As mentioned before you can't drive to your pitch (a good point), but all of the car parks were full. There were also often queues for showers and washing up. To the credit of the owners the pitches were still as big as before and when camping it didn't feel crowded, but when you needed the facilities you had to be prepared to wait. Also you are now charged to bring a trailer(5 each I think).

I feel I am being a bit picky, it is still a lovely site and I'm sure that we will be back. But if you have the choice, I'd come midweek in term time if you want a completely stress-free camp.

On arrival Stuart showed us around, he was really friendly, couldn't have been more helpful and made a great first impression. There is an honesty shop selling essentials, as well as everything needed for a campfire, great to be somewhere where the campers are trusted. There is also a barn area which really made me think we had come to the right place. It not only had showers, sinks, fridge, freezer, sockets for charging phones etc, washing up area, table, sofas and books but also an urn and a kettle. The urn and kettle were for the washing up (as the water heater was out of order), but also for anyone to use if they just fancied an easy cup of tea.

We were camped in the lower meadow. It did have some portaloos but I usually made a bit longer walk to the 'proper' toilets by the shop.

Other people have mentioned the pitches being circular mown patches in a meadow of long grass and it really worked. There was also a larger mown area just for the kids to play on.

Our one trip out was to the MAD Museum in Stratford - not huge, but really interesting.

All in all we loved the site - the friendliness, the campfires, the lack of cars and the meadow setting. We would happily return.

*Perfect apart from the wasps*

Some friends and I stayed here for two nights mid-August, with our children (aged between 10 months - 6 years).

The site is really beautiful and we loved the circular mown pitches with fire pits. There is lots of space between pitches - it was full on the second night but in some of my photos it looks like we are the only ones there! We camped in the top meadow which is flatter and has lovely sunset views.

The owners were welcoming and helpful and the facilities were clean and pleasant to use. The little shop stocks essentials including marshmallows, and there are sofas and tables in the spacious wash up area. Taking our stuff up to the pitch in wheelbarrows was hard work, but worth it for the car-free meadow, completely safe for the kids, and no engines or slamming doors to disturb the peaceful atmosphere.

The other campers were almost all families too, and the children absolutely loved roaming the field with all the new friends they made, exploring through the long grass, meeting the chickens and ducks, and toasting marshmallows on our campfire. The site was very quiet from 10pm and we enjoyed peaceful evenings and nights.

During the day we visited the airfield just down the road - walkable even by toddlers - where you can get a good cooked breakfast/lunch and a hot drink. There are loads of attractions nearby if you were staying for longer. Warwickshire is very pretty, I can't give it 10* as a location, as other parts of the country are a lot nicer and have mountains/sea/woods etc, but it's local for us and an easy weekend trip.

It would have been an absolutely perfect experience, if it hadn't been for the wasps. There must have been nests close by as we were constantly being pestered by them - I know it's August but it wasn't just the odd one or two, they were there as soon as we started pitching, even with no food out. I put a wasp trap out and it must have caught over 100 in 24 hours. (Have used it in other 'waspy' places in August and caught maybe 20 in the same period). This really put a downer on our stay, as we all felt on edge and it was almost impossible to prepare or eat food. A real shame, not the fault of the site owners and everything else was amazing. I've had to lower my ratings because of that, but if there were no wasps it would have been 10*.

I'd love to come back, just not in August!

Stayed here overnight just to get away from home. What a fantastic site. Cars kept away from tents. Individual pitches set apart and surrounded by natural tall grass rather than packed in on neat lawns in formal rows. Fire pits in each pitch as well! How good is that? Great to sit round the fire toasting marshmallows. An absolute haven.

We didn't take kids however, there was plenty of space for them to explore. Lots of nearby walks, cycle routes and local attractions.

Toilets were kept very clean as were the showers although these are electric which are not very powerful and it was difficult to get dressed in the changing area on a wet floor which inevitably gets dirty as users put shoes on. No hot water at sinks for washing or shaving also which was a bit of a negative. Possibly not for Glampers.

Michael who owns the site, could not have been more helpful. If you want a get close to basic camping on a natural site free from cars with lots of walks or cycling, then this is for you. We will be going back as we loved it.

We loved the idea of meadows! The circles of mowed grass where you pitch make the place feel bigger.

Handing fire bits already there at a reasonable price, fire pit is ready to be used.

Friendly host, too bad for the portable toilets but hopefully the new ones being built will be ready for our next visit.

Second 'annual' visit for late May Bank Holiday with friends

We were Family of Five with Kids age 7, 5, 2 and Friends - 4 with Kids 7 & 5

Pitches well separated by long grass, love the no cars rule with barrows to transport tent etc, happy to let kids roam site and play with other children. Lovely to have fire in the evenings.

Extraordinarily friendly owner who genuinely tries to make sure all have a good stay. Basic toilets, with new block under construction. Covered barn with 4 sinks, two electric showers and fridge freezer/kettle.

Close to castles and sights but nice away from it feel.

A beautiful location, lovely big pitches, fantastic meadows, open fires, very peaceful. Really good campsite. However, the other reviews are a little misleading. The facilities are portaloos and after a busy May bank weekend these were seriously smelly. The owner was v keen for feedback and there are more showers, washing up facilities and proper toilets in the pipeline, once these are in this will be an outstanding campsite.

We visited with our young family as a trial run (not far from home), just before Aug Bank holiday. We loved it! Stuart is fantastic, he does so much to keep things running smoothly, looking good and most of all was so welcoming, hospitable and helpful, he really went out of his way to make sure we were all sorted and settled in. The site is so well maintained and I love the long grass around the pitches. All of the amenities were kept clean and tidy and there was everything you need readily available. It was our first trip with our six-month old and although we'd prefer to go further from home we will definitely go back as it was fab and the view from the top field was beautiful. Thank you and very special thanks to Stuart - you really made the trip for us x

Well. What can I say. What an absolutely wonderful campsite!

My boyfriend and I arrived to the site fairly early in the day. After making a couple of calls to the owner, he advised us to carry on and pitch up and he would be over to greet us on his return.

As you do, we had a little wander and checked out the facilities. The toilets and showers were immaculate. We also noticed the little touches like the opportunity to purchase fresh eggs, logs and BBQs if required.

We chose our spot right at the back of the site. We were lucky enough to have the choice of any pitch due to having our stay mid week. The site itself is on two fields and whilst they are close to each other they are extremely private due to the long grass surrounding the areas.

During our two nights stay, we experienced the amazing views, wonderful weather together with polite and approachable staff. On top of this, we also witnessed the aeroplanes passing, one of which gave us a show of loop the loops! Very special.

We did have to drive to the nearest shop for food and drink. This wouldn't be walking distance for any forgotten items.

We would definitely return to this site and may even consider a weekend in the well kept tipis. Can't wait to come back!

My three sons and I stopped here overnight whilst having a couple of days back-packing. From the warm welcome by Stuart (the site manager) to leaving the next morning I cannot recommend this site enough. Facilities are basic but very clean and they work all the time (the hot shower was most welcome). The site itself is two fields left to nature with individual pitches mown into the meadow grass and interconnecting pathways. There are even barrows provided to take your kit from your car to the pitch (if needed). The fire-pits are a brilliant idea - and we sat drinking hot cocoa whilst all around us the glow of open fires lit up the incredible landscape. We pitched two tents with loads of room to spare.

If you want a back-to-basics site as nature intended, with caring, friendly staff, and peaceful family-friendly neighbours, then this is the site for you.

The down side? Just make sure you have strong tent-pegs as some of the pitches are a little stoney - but no real dramas.

We will definitely be going back!
