We will visit again. We don’t like the big commercial sites and this was perfect for us. We got a friendly welcome and we enjoyed feeling part of the farm. Perfectly adequate facilities. If we want a big all singing and dancing toilet and shower block we’ll visit a Caravan and Motorhome site (remembering we need to precisely park with the correct corner of our campervan at the white maker post otherwise we’ll get a telling off).

We love this campsite. Recommended.

We stayed here on the rally field with the BCC. It is a large well mown and level field with fresh water and elsan point. Electric hookup is available as are hardstandings. It is away from the main road so only noise was the early birds and sheep. There is an info shed with all the walks and local facilities and another shed with fresh eggs and locally made jams and cakes. We did not use the facilities at the main site but they appeared satisfactory and clean despite the site being very busy. Very helpful owners who have compiled the information folder

A lovely small site in a great location, just a 2 mile walk across country into Stratford. The main road is very fast and best avoided by foot or bike but there is a nice route out of the back of the site over fields to Clifford Chambers. The site owners are very friendly and they have an honesty box for eggs, jams and delicious cakes! The toilet/shower facilities are clean albeit a little tired. We like this site and hope to use it again.

Monks Barn Farm is well situated close to Stratford-on-Avon with excellent access from the main road. The CL site is large with good size pitches but there is a considerable amount of road noise from early in the morning until late at night. The site does advertise toilet and shower facilities but these are not good. The whole area is shabby and not clean. There is a stone tiled floor which has not been washed in a long time an there are cobwebs a plenty. There is no mop and bucket just a sweeping brush but the cleanliness of this area needs to be addressed. There are two toilets and one shower - which we would not use. These facilities are for the CL site - 5 units, another area which has approximately 9 pitches and a rally field which was in use when we stayed. These facilities are not sufficient for the number of units on site. We realise that this is a working farm but if a caravan site is part of your business then you need to make sure the facilities are adequate and clean.

Management response: We were saddened and distressed to read Karen's review of August 2016.

What the visitor has overlooked is that whilst we have 8 numbered pitches on the CL Site and 8 Numbered pitches on the Independent site (Fieldbarn Site) we only use 5 pitches and 6 pitches respectively and the extra are to allow
for changeovers and resting the ground where necessary. Therefore the maximum number of outfits that could use the toilet facilities at any one time, would be 11 -this is assuming that both sites are full. Rallies at Monks' Barn are required to be self contained and do not use the facilities.

The toilet area has been sited in an adapted brick farm barn and the walls and floor tiled as appropriate. Inevitably at certain times of the year we get cobwebs, which we attend to as and when we can, but putting cobwebs aside, and in our defence, we are always meticulous about the cleanliness of the sanitary ware. It is cleaned every day and more if required, and there are notices requesting our visitors to tell us if there is anything they are concerned about.

We feel we are being unjustly compared with
larger sites who are twice as expensive, if not more, who can therefore afford to offer a purpose built toilet blocks.

Stayed here one night on our way back to Yorkshire and so glad we did. This is a lovely little site with a friendly owner. Good value and very convenient for Stratford. More than adequate facilities. Would definitely return.

As a Caravan Club member, I had hoped for an available pitch on the CL, but instead the owners were able to put us on the Field Barn site, which is exactly like a CL behind the farm. All the facilities were very acceptable, being shared with the CL, including two toilets (which were clean but perhaps not spotless). On arrival we were welcomed and given a very detailed leaflet on access to Stratford, shops, and other attractions. Unusually there is a disused park and ride between the site and the town centre, now costing just £1, and about 15 minutes walk into Stratford along an old tramway track. We stayed during quite wet weather but the grass pitches were still usable.

We recently stayed for two nights at this wonderful site. The welcome we received was very friendly and helpful. The two toilets and one shower, were kept clean at all times. We stayed in one of two fields, which was near a fairly busy road, but hardly noticed any noise after a short while. It is a working farm, which meant fresh eggs from a little shed, also a delicious fruit cake to enjoy with our tea. Our pitch was level with awesome views & the grass was kept nicely trimmed. We shall definitely revisit when in the area.

Stayed on this lovely site for 5 nights over the Bank Holiday. Met by very pleasant owner and given choice of hardstanding or grass pitches on the Caravan Club CL area at front which we requested on booking. If you're bothered by road noise the Independent site at back may suit you better as it's further away from the road. We did find there was noise until later on in the evening but it didn't bother us. Grass was kept short and everywhere was clean and tidy the 2 toilets kept clean and the shower for which there is a 20p charge was nice and warm and lasted more than long enough.

There's a small wooden hut with a very good supply of Free Range Eggs and home made jam, also a selection of beautiful cakes baked by a local supplier. After we'd tried one we bough another 2 they were that tasty !

Plenty of information was supplied by owner about the area and various supermarkets. Dogs can be walked at the back of the site down the lane and across the fields to the village but there were sheep in the field so we took our dog to The Greenway which is a short drive away about 5 minutes and parking is free. Perfect for walking into Stratford or just a pleasant stroll or cycle ride.

We'll definitely be returning to this site and at a charge of £12 per night it's very reasonable. If you stay for more than 3 nights and you're an OAP there's a further 50p per night reduction.

Enjoyed our stay on this site. The owners are friendly and my 10 year old daughter loved feeling the lambs toast in the morning.

There is one shower which costs 20p for about 8 minutes and one toilet. But you can't complain for £11. 00 a night.

There is a very pretty walk to the local village across field, but whatever you do do not eat at the pub in the village, called The New Inn. The food is disgusting, it has the ambience of a staff canteen and is a rip off. Unfortunately this is the only pub within walking distance.

Stratford upon Avon is a short drive away and there is a waitrose nearby.

Would stay at this site again if I was returning to this area.

This is a lovely CL site close to Stratford. Very friendly owners who leave you to get on with things.

The washing facilities are basic but adequate, there is a shower and toilet in the barn, that are clean and tidy. It was 20p for an 8 minute shower. We used the shower in the van, but my son said their shower was nice and warm. There is a little shed that has local information and another that sells local produce e. G. Lemon drizzle cake, jam and honey.

Some reviewers have complained about road noise. Our pitch was close to the road, and we were not bothered at all.

There are some nice pubs close by to eat at and a supermarket just up the road.

Very cheap, good value and ideally located site.

Highly recommended.
