Reviewer: Blisters 6 reviews from this member

 A lovely quiet site (no loud music or radios when we were there) with plenty of space for both campervans, caravans and tents. The facilities were much better that expected with spotless separate toilets and shower facilities and lots of hot water. Could do with some instructions on how to lock the doors properly in the main ones, however. But some lazy people didn’t bother to shut the doors behind them afterwards, leaving the interiors open to the elements. Why?

There is a farm shop and café at the top end of the site - open 9. 00 - 5. 30, or 7. 00 p. M. On Tuesdays and Fridays for fish and chips. The nearest pubs and cafés are in Winchcombe, which has plenty of choice but is 2½ miles away down footpaths. Too dark to walk back so a vehicle or a taxi is essential.

The site is right on the Cotswold Way and ideal for hikers. We did a couple of sections which, in the late summer sunshine, were stunningly beautiful – who needs abroad! However, the next evening the weather turned and we felt extremely sorry for the couple doing the entire route. They arrived carrying all their gear including a very small two-man tent, which they valiantly erected in the pouring rain. So British!

 A lovely site in a rural setting, there was plenty of space for children to play. You are allowed to site your caravan anyway you like on the hard standing. The Cotswold way walk was on the doorstep and we had a pleasant walk to Winchcombe.

The shower and toilet block was near the entrance and was kept very clean with plenty of hot water for the showers.

The Cafe and Farm shop was a short walk away. We had the fish and chips on the Tuesday evening which were excellent. Made even more so as they were half price on the Eat out to Help out deal!

The Wardens were very welcoming and friendly. We had a problem with the jockey wheel when leaving and nothing was too much trouble to help us fix it.

We will certainly visit this site again

 A large site with plenty of open area for ball games. There are hard standing pitches with EHU and some tent pitches with EHU. The toilet/shower block is near the entrance and was kept very clean with excellent showers and plenty of hot water. There are separate facilities for the tent field.

There is a farm shop and cafe on site which, is easily accessed from the field instead of having to walk up the road. The cafe food was very good and they do a very ‘full’ English Breakfast.

The washing up facility is adjacent to the tented facilities and with just two sinks proved very congested at times, especially with CV19 restrictions. It is also a bit of a trek across the field, this was the only criticism we could make.

The area is rich in scenic villages, Sudeley castle and a GWR heritage railway line.

We would recommend staying here and we will return.

 Lovely little site with a farm shop and cafe, fruit picking and nature walk.

We stayed for a few nights just after the covid-19 lockdown had been relaxed with a 5 year old and a 1 year old. Our pitch was lovely, really quiet with beautiful views and plenty of space for the kids to play.

The toilets were spotless, and kept that way by the warden who was seemingly continuously cleaning throughout the day. The warden was very friendly and helpful.

We also loved the farm dog Bernard who came to say hello every day!

We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Reviewer: Chris Neail 1 review from this member

 A great site. Rural and isolated, but don't let that put you off.

The shop has the basics, plus fresh farm produce. Never used the cafe this time. In the past it's been fine. Snacks and drinks at reasonable prices. Surprisingly, they sell gas bottles too.

The amenity block was very clean- it was during the Covid 19 'panic, ' so everything was rather caotic- unnecessarily so in my view. There was even a heater on in July.

The welcome was beyond reproach.

9/10. No complaints. If you enjoy fishing, the two lakes are for you.

We shall be returning.

Reviewer: AFolder 3 reviews from this member

 We arrived on a bank holiday Monday and the toilets were quite grotty from an obviously busy weekend with bits of toilet paper all over one of the wash hand basins, we stayed 4 nights in total and the toilets were never cleaned.

On arrival you book in at the farm shop who send you back to the camp site with a pitch location map. We never met the wardens who live next to the toilet block.

The hardstandings were made from recycled tarmac which had an unpleasant smell and stuck to your shoes like grit when wet. Even with ramps we were unable to get level.

The farm shop although very nice didn’t stock the basics of a campsite shop, ie. , no dog food, cleaning goods or even toiletries.

The toilets and showers were of a portaloo type and were quite good, if only they were clean, however there simply weren’t enough of them for such a big site as there were way more than 15 pitches as advertised.

All in all we will not return even though the location was truly fabulous, £34 a night for 2adult, 1child and 2dogs.

 As other reviewers have said, it’s a basic site but nicely laid out, there was plenty of space for children to play in the middle of the fields.

We moved our table into the middle of the field to catch the last of the evening sun.

There was no traffic noise and lots of stars at night. You didn’t feel crowded although it was busy.

The toilets were posh portaloo style and we had to wait to use them sometimes. The grass was a bit long and our pitch sloped a bit. The nature trail looked nice but we didn’t get time to try it.

The farm shop and cafe were lovely and the owners and staff were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed trying the home pressed apple juice and bought some bottles.

Breakfast was very nice. Saturday evening meal at the Pheasant was very good but we were lucky to get the last table. We caught the train from Toddington to Broadway.

If there was a children’s play area then we would definitely return, but will probably return anyway as we want to go to Broadway tower!

 Stayed here two night midweek beginning July. After booking in at farm shop, it's a quick you turn back the site. 12 hard standing pitch where you want. Toilets and showers are clean and up to the job.

Plenty open space for dogs. In fact there were only 2 other units and a couple of TENTS. Did a bit of PYO fruit and bought some of the site brewed cider!.

Took a short walk to the Broadway - Cheltenham Steam railway. The site is quiet, just the job. Would I go back. YES.

 Stayed for one night, two adults in a small campervan with no electric.

You have to pass the campsite to go to the farm shop to sign in on arrival, we arrived just in time to have a Friday night fish and chips cooked in the cafe. Well priced and good size portions.

We were able to turn around as the carpark was empty and we were very small, but I think I'd be worried about a caravan.

Able to pick our own pitch.

We only used the older portaloo style toilets and so can't comment on the newer ones. Toilets clean enough.

We also didn't use the showers. These were also of a portable style in the older section.

Washing up area under a cover with 2 sinks and light.

Wardens and farm/ cafe friendly.

Nice basic site. We would stay again.

 Used this site as one of our stops on a recent 4 week trip. This was the only site that required a 50% deposit on booking and the balance 3 weeks before arrival. When you arrive you are directed to the farm shop/reception. Unfortunately you then have to perform a U turn and head back down the lane, and then turn into the site.

On the actual site there are some not very level gravel pitches and mostly sloping grass areas to pitch on.

There are adequate EHU points, but could do with more water points.

Old toilet area needs doing away with. New toilet unit is pretty new, but is woefully inadequate (2 x showers and 2 x toilets + one family room) These were only cleaned every other day, and did not always contain soap or toilet roll. Elsan disposal point is a health hazard. It is basically an open sewer, no cover, and overflowed twice when I used it. Told Warden about problem but she showed complete dis interest. There are no facilities for children.

The site is, in my opinion a money making machine with all the money taken out and very little put back in for customers.
