Really lovely small site near Birmingham. Youíd never know you were so close to a big city. Took me about an hour to drive in, but that was really bad rush hour traffic. Very close to NEC if youíre going to a show there. Maybe 20mins. Found a nice pub in the next village along called the Coleshill which did the best Halloumi and chips Iíve ever had. They also do breakfast.

There are roads nearby, and if I tried really hard I could hear a little road noise, but it was mainly drowned out by all the birds. Lovely view and sunset from my pitch.

Thereís a mix of grass and hard standing, and electric and non electric pitches. Grass is beautifully kept and the whole site is totally flat.

I was just in a car, but I donít think there would be any access difficulties, the gates are wide, and the access track is too. The only thing Iíd mention is that the sign isnít very obvious, so slow down as you get close. I drove past on my first attempt.

Bathrooms - one male and one female. Big wetrooms. Shower is fixed temp, but showerhead is on a hose. Clean, warm and bug free.

Indoor washing up facilities for campers, and thereís a big permanent gazebo where you could sit if it was raining.

Owner Eddie is lovely. Really friendly, but without being intrusive and always available if you need anything.

Overall, great value, fabulous rural location but close to the city. Would definitely go back if I have another conference etc in Birmingham.

Great stopover, met by the friendly Eddie, so helpful despite our jack russell wanting to jump through the window and eat him. Good facilities, nice showers and loos. He directed us to the local pub, very good. The site is easily accessible with good spacious pitches, will definitely return

This site is fab and the proximity to the NEC is perfect. We stayed 4 nights while visiting family and the NEC. The EHU was not fully up and running due to waiting for the powers that be holding things up but we managed with the temporary set up no problem. The site was immaculate. The showers were huge and plenty of hot water. Looking forward to visiting again when we next head that way. Nice little dog walk beside the site. As a motorhome we had a trailer with our car on it so we could get about. I have no idea if there is a bus service. Eddie is lovely funny and so very helpful.

Very conveniently located for visiting the NEC. Supermarket not too far away, and a nearby pub. Quiet site, friendly owner, straightforward pitch allocation, excellent bathroom facilities. Would recommend this site.

Stayed for two nights. Was met on arrival and welcomed by the owner who was very helpful and accommodation sorting out the electric hook up for us! The site, although small at the moment, has great shower facilities and lovely quiet area not far from Sutton Coldfield and Birmingham. We would definitely stay there next time we are down in that area!

We arrived a few at a time, and Eddie was fantastic, showing us the best places to pitch our group, and brought his BBQ over for us to use for the weekend, as a special treat, and even included some coals!

The facilities are always clean, warm, and nicely presented, with lovely showers, and lots of space. Music is constantly playing in the showers/toilets, which gives it a real homely feel.

The site itself, is always tidy, and Eddie or another member of staff, are always to hand, for any issues/queries! We have now stayed at the site a few times, and will be back again during 2019! Such a relaxed atmosphere and in such a beautiful location, but with shops and pubs only a short distance! We canít wait! 😁

After looking for a site in easy reach of the NEC one quick phone call to Eddie led us here. Tucked away behind Yew Tree Cottage is a small, flat camping field with a few hard standing pitches. After a dry spell we could park on the (immaculate) mown grass under the shade of a mature hedge. Across the way is the utility block (again small) with a sink for washing up and very spacious single shower/ toilet rooms (one for men, one for women). After meeting friendly Eddie, a landscaper, some of the more interesting features of the site garden, with a permanent gazebo, mirrors, a boat (yes, a small yacht is beached in the garden) and lots of new-looking hedging, made sense.

From the site a 10 minute walk down a quiet lane gets you to the local village (Shustoke) with a community shop for essentials and a CAMRA pub, for other essentials.

15 minutes drive gets you to the NEC.

This was, for us, just about perfect. Friendly, easy and quiet and very reasonable compared to some other near-Birmingham sites. No complex booking arrangements either; just phone and turn up.

A couple more things: the access to the shower block is flat and paved; no steps, wide doors so useable by folks with mobility problems.

If there's any niggle at all, the view south is a bit pylony; also Eddie made clear when we phoned there is as yet no electric hook up but, surrounded by wheat fields and with blackbirds and throughshes feeding in the field, this sunny little haven was a grand spot to spend a night and we will definitely go back.
