Reviewer: Craig Messenger 1 review from this member

 Description of site with the facilities sounded perfect for a week stay.

New refurbished shower, toilets etc. I can only presume that was from about 10 years ago. Just two combined toilet and shower with no real hand basin of any size if required. Very poorly lit and no heating. One the shower was just a trickle. Cleaned possibly once maybe twice in a whole week. Smelt very damp due to poor ventilation.

Camping field was literally that. Entrance was a wet muddy mass, and field had clearly not seen a lawn mower for some time as grass was quite long.

This has the potential to be a very good site if investment was made to improve facilities and entrance. Will not be coming back

 Lovely location, good pub, good and reasonably priced food, very Covid secure set up.

Hassle free check in.

Would certainly return and explore more of the local area

 Pros

Easy access from road

A water tap to share with your neighbour

Cons

Muddy slick in centre of field

Heard from other campers the two toilet/shower rooms. To service 25 pitches were dirty despite the pandemic

Due to this we used our own toilet and tiny shower

Saturday night was music night and the volume was so loud it vibrated through the caravan

Last but by no means least, you weren't allowed to put your rubbish in their bins and were expected to take it home with you. Never been expected to do this before. Surely your site fees covers this expense. Who wants to store up a weeks worth of smelly rubbish.

Would we come again. Not likely

Believe their main interest is the pub and the campsite comes a poor second.

All in all really good stay 😊

In a beautiful location close to Bidford-on-Avon, short walk across fields

 Relaxed site, suitable for everyone and our daughter enjoyed the play area. Limited lunch menu due to current situation and campers/ caravanners eat outside (can collect food or have it delivered to your table).

Beer tent provided much needed shade while eating /drinking.

Located next to river and some lovely walks, including the short distance to Bidford Village, where we paddled in the river!

 The cleanliness of the shower room was poor, especially during this pandemic, they were cleaned once a day! Sanitizer ran out, toilet roll was empty for over 16hrs!

Only one shower/ toilet room open for the camp site, although the camp site was not busy, this was still an issue, especially as the pub clientele were using this facility as well!

Pitches were small!

 Very well kept site. Basic amenities

But kept very clean, friendly staff and quiet location.

Would definitely recommend this site for anyone to stay.

Good pub as well. Thank you for an enjoyable break.

 Visited this site prior to this August BH, pleasant enough site, no problems with over exuberant trippers and only one morning with kiddies up bright and early [7:30am]

Toilet/shower cubicles really need a bit of attention, with the doors ill fitting need some off the bottom to allow them to close properly and with a safer lock,

Extractor fan in the R/h unit was buzzing but doing nothing, gave it a tap and it started spinning into life and helped clear the fog!

lighting is also in need of attention with two bulbs in one of the units just not functioning at all,

Loo paper was not always replenished until a polite mention to the very obliging staff,

The water temperature in the shower in L/H unit was a bit open to fluctuation when someone was using the wash up unit around the side,

Pub itself served a good quality set of food and drink [ate there twice] easy access to dog walking area/ field and into Bidford on Avon village through this field which has a variety of shops and pubs,

 This site is a pleasantly sized field behind a delightful village pub. EHU pitches are arranged round the outside, whilst the centre dips to a muddy patch around which non-EHU campers can pitch as they please. Most of the pitches have a slight slope. Pitches 17 and 18 are the best: furthest from the entrance, they are flat and level, but well drained and you don't feel crowded there. They are directly under the three phase power lines however.

The ground is excellent: firm and grippy with no stones at all. The grass was beautifully mown and the clippings collected. EHU is good and reliable. Much has been made of the taps being above the sockets, but this wasn't the case on our bollard - maybe they've fixed that. Campfires are allowed, which is a rare treat.

The washing up sinks are weirdly small, but I found they work well. The dish drainers - oddly absent from most sites - are very handy. The shower rooms are not to my taste. The one on the left is fine, but the one on the right is whiffy, dark and wet. The curtain is black with mould and I always felt glad to escape. The pub loos are available when the pub is manned, not 24/7 as advertised. We never had to queue and there was always plenty of hot water.

We were there in May half term, so there were some loud families and very happy dogs frolicking. Somebody had a drone; children blew bubbles; there were noisy air pumps being used quite late, and evidently somebody had been fitting poor quality after-market car alarms to the pub regulars' cars. If you're curmudgeonly and want to get your grump on, there's plenty here to set you off. It was full of life and we loved it.

The access lane runs along the side of the pub and I imagine is quite tight if you're towing. It spits you out into the pub car park where there's a congregation of bins which are not equal to a bank holiday week end.

The local area is full of interest. It's very easy to get to the river and the charming walk to Bidford. The Budgens there is quite dear but perfect for campers, with everything you need including a very impressive booze section.

The pub staff are very helpful and polite, and the atmosphere is friendly. They don't harass you to pay your site fees or to get off site on the dot of x o'clock. The competition would be the Fish and Anchor a few miles down the river. We dropped in for lunch there and it seemed better organised than the Cottage but didn't have the charm or interest.

 Pro's-

Nice location and nice pub, can be very peaceful at times, nice walk through fields into Bidford, nice for kids & dog's

Con's-

Dog's barking and kid's screaming at 7:30am, this is due to inconsiderate owners/parent's. Lovely showers but dark, they need replacement bulbs (10 minutes & a couple of quid).

Stinking, rotting grass cutting's that just need bagging or covering till composted.

Water taps directly above EHU socket, Deadly!

EHU trip switch is located in a locked box, so can't be reset when the pub is closed? Luckily the next pitch was vacant and we plugged in to that one.

Some dogs had fouled, I presume without the owners knowledge, maybe the site owners should insist on dog lead's at all times if this persists?
