A nice little CS, easy enough to find. From the M42, get on the A45 and then the A452 towards Leamington. At the edge of Balsall Common, at the roundabout by the Beefeater, come back on yourself. There is a small lane immediately past the railway bridge, left off this and there is a wrought iron gateway to the site.

The site has hardstandings but a bit of levelling will be needed. Sky tv signal is very easy to find.

There is a small Sainsburys with fuel just down the main road; the best way to get to this is to go towards the motorway for a couple of hundred yards and turn right, then you turn left. There is also a doggy walk just down this lane.

We would use this site again as a stopover, good email communication but the owner was away. We had to leave the reasonable 12 per night in the postbox outside the loo (down an alleyway very small envelopes in the loo, not literally).

We have just returned from this site after just using it as a local meet up with friends

Took 3 units Two twin axle caravans and a motor home and stayed 3 nights

Nice wide access no problems getting on or leaving site.

Field was nice and level, we too had the chickens running around but proved no problem even though they teased the dog.

Campsite was very basic a field marked out with up to 8 pitches but I think only about 3 had EHU, owners did go out of their way and run some cables from the garage for us, owners were nice and pleasant and helpful.

We always use our own toilet and shower even if the site has them so this was no problem, the owners let us have a fire as long as it was raised off the ground and didn't mark or damage the grass and we sat out at night talking and drinking beer and wine around the fire.

In all very good value for money

What do you get for your 12 a night EHU or 10 no EHU (Prices as of end of April 2017)

No showers

One toilet

An old toilet converted in to an Elsan point

A drain for grey waste and grey waste tap

Fresh water tap

I must just point out you do get a fair bit road noise and noise from the airport but this stopped later in to the night the cockerel didn't wake us to early and didn't give us any problems in fact gave to the illusion that this farm was even deeper in to the countryside than it really was.

Now the negative bit

Only one thing really and that was the carwash backing on to the field I could live with the airport and the road noise but I feel the whole camp site is wrecked by just one thing the owners have no control over and I feel sorry for them as it must really affect their business and could be avoided if the carwash gave any thought to other folk, the noise made was really bad with the messing around soaking each other having water fights and one morning shouting fire fire fire. The owners did go and have a word with them but this made little difference.

Would we stay again.

YES. Would especially recommend as very good place for a cheap overnight stop over and it has a pub within half a mile.

Finding the site was no problem, but could easily be over shot as you pass the roundabout there is a pub/Travelodge, the farm house is directly after the garage converted into a carwash, there is an un-official gravel lay-by you can pull up in to get off the main road, but for the camping field you need to drive on a couple of hundred yards and turn left then left again and the gates are just 40/50m on your left.

Lovely little campsite, basic but clean

Small field but nice, level and firm and catches the sum for almost all the day

No showers or washing up facilities, you get a large toilet with hot and cold water but a small sink (don't try and wash your plates)

Outside is a chemical toilet disposal/wash facility

There is a separate drinking water tap and there are PIR lights so you can get to the toilets etc in the dark without needing a torch

There are chickens running loose on the field but these are rounded up at night and don't make any noise

The owners are very nice and friendly, they even offered a refund as we paid for two tents but as they were so small they offered a refund for one tent :)

There is a Sainsbury's local/petrol station and a Beefeater over the road and these are 5 minutes walk from the field

Considering you are a few hundred meters from a busy dual carriageway there was hardly any noise

Overall a small, nice friendly campsite, basic but clean

Stayed for 2 nights.

Clean toilet on site.

Nice flatish field

Farm shop next to location

Pub beefeater 2oo yards away and sainsbury local

Railway line close by but don't really notice the noise.

It is near the flight path for birmingham airport but again not too bad.

Horses on site and sheep in the next field.

Really friendly lady on site
