Spent may bank holiday site full

Chickens run about and their droppings walk into the toilet block, !

Facilities were very outdated and not cleaned everyday.

The womens block had a horrible smell.

Old towels to wipe your hands certainly not hygienic.

Washing up area very dirty. Sinks left dirty.

Noisey one night with nobody on patrol to ask for the loud music to be turned down

Not value for the cost

Certainly would not recommend this site.

Have visited this beautiful site several times now. Owners are tremendously welcoming, friendly and helpful. The facilities are immaculately clean. We have never visited to find them dirty. Rubbish bins dotted around the site are emptied several times a day.

It is somewhere we will always come back to.

I have never experienced rowdy or noisy neighbours, on the contrary I have always found it to be restful and tranquil.

The site is in a peaceful and quiet location with a friendly welcoming owner. Lovely walk to the nearby village with a good foodie pub. On the site the shop is well stocked, the local baker supplied croissants and Cornish pasties.

The main caravan field is surrounded by an outer perimeter of statics with grass touring and tent pitches on the inner perimeter without any borders between pitches. The site was full over the bank holiday weekend with family groups.

The central area is effectively the play area with no restrictions on ball games such that balls were hitting the awning (fortunately not the caravan), The noise went on unchecked until after 11pm, adult campers chasing each other with water almost running through our awning, loud music until midnight, basically unchecked mayhem and no respect for other campers.

The grey water point requires the waste lifting over a low brick wall and the toilet block is out of the 1950ís. Clean but old fashioned, basic facilities with tatty mats on the floor ; a trip and health hazard. A single hand towel was provided for all to use in the facilities ! That is simply not acceptable !

Unfortunately we cannot recommend the site; for the money charged we could have stayed on a full serviced pitch with modern up to date facilities.

This site is a little gem and I'm so glad we chose it for our main holiday of the year as the location is seemingly rural, yet within minutes by car you're able to visit Statford-upon-Avon and Warwick.

We received a warm welcome from Katharine who showed us to our plot and around the site and was around for most of the week, she was accessible and very helpful.

We camped as a family of 4 (2 kids under 10) with electric hook-up. Our plot was on the main meadow and was nice and flat, with plenty of space to either side to give us privacy. All the plots were in a 'circle' with the central area being free for families to play in. The site has many static homes placed around the edge of the island, some with pretty gardens and the owners were really friendly, as were the other campers. More informal camping areas were in front of the house and in the rear meadow.

The site has a really relaxed rural feel and was pretty on the eye. The site has a David Bellamy award for conservation. As the site is on an island there are a few foot bridges and the weir area. It felt safe to let the kids play freely, but if you had toddlers you'd want to watch they don't roam near the water. There was a small tree house and a football goal for the kids to use. Chickens and geese roamed freely around, which isn't for everyone but we really enjoyed them (yes there was a little mess but not an issue for us).

The shop on site is a gold mine - loads of provisions, milk, fresh bakery bread and pastries, alcohol, books, toys, etc.

The 'facilities' were in a block. The ladies included 6 toilets, 4 sinks and two showers (long and narrow). It was all functioning and was regularly cleaned. There was a hairdryer in the ladies. Despite the site being full, I never had to queue for the facilities but I did notice that on wet days the floors can look messy if people don't wipe their boots as they walk in. Mops and buckets are left around to enable people to clean-up - although it is high time the hop heads were changed and as the facilities are 'open' they do attract bugs on the ceilings.

The Gents showers are separated from the toilets and open to the outside. There is a disabled shower there too.

There is a small wash-up area (2 stainless steel sink units) which was kept clean with washing-up bowls. Next to it was a washing machine and tumble dryer - both work on tokens (£2. 50 each) and worked well, with baskets available to carry your washing.

The chemical disposal area was close to the wash-up area - not ideal, but separated enough not to be a health issue. There were also leaflets on 'what's going on' in the area.

There were 'service points' dotted regularly around the site, so you never had to walk far for fresh water or for bins/recycling bins (the bins were emptied daily).

Activity wise there is a lot to do in the region, from Warwick Castle (look for deals & buy online to save money) to the full Shakespeare experience around Stratford. There are stables near by too and lots of walks to take from the site and a good pub near by (we didn't go there but everyone else we met raved about it). Rides on the river and up the canals.

The site is a hidden gem and I look forward to going back sometime in the future.

Excellent site, excellent facilities, with lots of little extras like soap in the washrooms, washing machine and tumble dryer.

Well stocked shop, very kind and helpful owner who rented us a static caravan when our tent decided to let water in.

Lovely surroundings with geese, ducks and hens roaming around, and also the rabbits and squirrels.

Will definitely return.

What a lovely site! We found this gem and booked in two caravans for the weekend of which we were blessed with the weather. It was a lovely drive in, site is flat and greeted with geese wandering around everywhere.

We had four large dogs between us and there was more than enough room for them on long leads in the lovely grassy area around the caravans. The walks straight off site are particularly lovely and dog friendly, pleas look out for livestock though before letting off the lead. The lady who runs this was lovely and the shop is just like Dr Who's Tardis, incredible!

This is a very quite site, no road noise, just sat in deckchairs listening to sheep and pheasants. You are surrounded by a ring of static caravans but we didn't mind this as everyone is going about their business. We had a very relaxing weekend and hoping to go back next month for another weekend.

Please note, the toilets and showers, which seemed fine to me but I never expect state of the art toilets when caravanning are being redone next Winter. Any mud on the floor the owner explained is sometimes left by walkers who come in and use the toilets but aren't actually staying at the site. We found the toilets and showers clean and had no problems!

Will definitely visit again!

Thanks to Island Meadow for finding space for me and my little tent on a busy Bank Holiday weekend! The site was busy and lively but the space given to me was quiet and peaceful.

There's a main area where there are many static caravans, some with lovely gardens, and in the middle is a central area where large tents can go. Then there are several hedged areas near the house which presumably used to be garden and orchards, which is where smaller tents were.

The facilities were under some pressure as the site was so full, but I never had to queue, and apart from a bit of mud on the floor, everything stayed clean. There is a very well-stocked site shop - I was sorry that I'd been shopping before I arrived!

Aston Cantlow is a very pretty village with two pubs which each had an event that weekend. Nearby there are lovely canal walks and cycle rides on the Stratford Canal. Alcester is a lovely little town with some great shops.

I've every intention of coming back here, I'd spend longer next time.

A very pleasant and unexpected find! We were travelling down from Scotland and wanted a stopover near Birmingham, and were squeezed in as a last-minute booking.

In fact this would be a good site for a longer stay.

The site is unregimented, and the owner understands the needs and interests of campers. They have a little shop in the back of reception and seemed to have a very wide range of products on offer, including reasonably-priced wines.

It is fairly convenient to the motorway but far enough away from any major road to guarantee a quiet and peaceful stay. Lots of birdlife as well as resident geese and ducks. Our only suggestion is that the toilet, shower and washing-up facilities are given a major overhaul and more space. Although clean, they seem to be a left-over from the 60s.

Lovely site. One of the best we've visited. Owners are very friendly and helpful.

Ground quite flat, not much levelling needed when you arrive.

The shop is small but has a huge range of stock - just about everything you might need.

Downsides - just a couple. The toilet block could do with a hand dryer, the communal towel isn't good. And the roads have immense potholes that need filling in.

But overall, a 9 out of 10 here. It's a great site.

Island meadow brought back fond memories of how much fun camping used to be. We only got to stay one night here as a stop over on our way back home, but we will definitely be back again for longer next time.

Reasonably close to the motorway network it is well worth a short detour to find this hidden gem. The owner couldn't have been more accomadating finding us a pleasant little nook in which to pitch up and then went to the trouble to check that our nieghbours were ok before she left.

The kids all seemed to be having fun in a safe supervised environment, but not being an open plan layout meant the noise was never an issue as it is at some sites.

The toilet block facilities were kept clean and other than the cubicle being rather cramped and a bit dated they did the job without any cause to complain.

The little shop at the back of the house is simply a cornucopia of goodies ready for all ages to spend their pocket money, so be warned, you will buy something.

We would certainly recommend Island meadow if you are looking for a traditional camping at a reasonable price run by people who clearly take pride in their site.
