Reviewer: Taidy 1 review from this member

 Lovely, spacious and peaceful site with superb views and walks. Good for fans of dark skies as well.

Our host is an interesting and very entertaining chap and nothing is too much trouble.

Excellent facilities, with a shiny new shower block, just coming on stream while we were there.

And better still, it's barely an hour from home.

I'll be back!

 Fabulous site. Very quiet, with extensive views across countryside. We normally stay at CLs, and were apprehensive about staying on a 40-pitch site, but were potentially being joined by family with tents. You're really not aware of the size, as the pitches are informally spread around different areas and shielded by trees.

If you're out walking on the farm before 7. 30, you may see up to ~70 deer roaming around.

The toilet blocks were totally adequate, although the owners have responded to previous reviews and are just finalising a new block.

It's a shame the local shop closed, but there are others within an easy drive.

We'll definitely be back, and bring more of the family with us.

 Fantastic stay over Christmas

The site is very quiet and beautiful with great views over the fields with loads of places to walk,

Itís great that you can choose where you would like to pitch and great that itís not all uniform.

The owners are really relaxed and amazingly helpful

Will definitely stay again

Reviewer: Tony+vivienne 5 reviews from this member

 Proper opportunity to relax and get away from it all at this beautiful, scenic campsite. Exceptionally quiet, just the gentle sound of wildlife to wake up to, with all the necessary facilities you need to support your stay.

Set within 6 acres of woodland, next to open fields with panoramic views and big skies, this site exudes tranquility. It's part of a working farm, but you wouldn't know it (the owner Odell has worked the farm and maintained the campsite for 5 generations).

The spacious, non-regimented pitches are set amongst well kept lawns and mature trees. Many pitches have their own seating areas with wooden tables and benches. EHU comes with each pitch and there are 5 freshwater standpipes located around the site.

There are wetrooms (£1 tokens obtained from Odell) and separate shower blocks/toilets. Also an indoor washing up facility and chemical waste point. The toilet blocks and area were generally clean, but do look a bit dated and could do with a spruce up. We also tripped the electric when boiling the kettle whilst the motorhome boiler was on, so need to be conscious of overloading it.

The site has its own dedicated footpaths one of which takes you directly to the local village of Lawshall, with The Swan pub and a village shop. It's dog friendly and there is a 1. 5 mile walk directly from the camping fields which is exclusive to guests.

Access to the site is via an unattractive, rundown barn and storage area which needs some serious TLC. But don't let that put you off. The site itself is lovely. We will be staying again.

Reviewer: Ruthec 1 review from this member

 Lovely, well kept site. Great to be able to select the pitch which suited us. Owner visible and available if needed, but not at all intrusive.

Excellent choice of facilities, four wetrooms and four bathrooms. Wet room showers last plenty long enough with one token. Hairdryer in ladies wetroom.

Good walks, signposted and well kept to nearest village. No shop nearby. But eggs and veg available at nearby farmhouse road stalls as you drive in villages.

Bury is an easy drive and several other places of interest to visit, the site is well placed.

 Brighthouse Farm is a nice relaxed site with a friendly welcoming owner.

The facilities are dated but kept clean.

Large pitches with plenty of room to spread out

Reviewer: Cathgr 1 review from this member

 We had a fantastic stay at Bright House Farm: Odell was very welcoming and fun. The star gazing was awesome and we loved that there isnít anything To

Do except play, bike, walk, sing around a campfire (in a pit). Also because the pitches were not split it could be very sociable as we were with friends.

We will definitely stay here and again and hopefully winter time too

Reviewer: Billrichards 2 reviews from this member

 This site is in a great location, no road noise just bird song and a little farm noise in the distance.

Odell the owner is helpful, helps you choose your pitch and says park how you wish this is not a regimented site.

It has toilets, showers, electric hook ups, water and waste disposal so what more could one want from a gorgeous country site

So go visit you will not be disappointed.

 This is a beautiful, rural location. Very tranquil and well maintained.

Within walking distance of the Swan pub.

Very friendly and helpful campsite owner who is passionate about the environment.

Fantastic place to stay away from the pressures of modern life.
