Having found this site on UKCampsite.co.uk & read the reviews I booked for 5 nights over the Easter holiday. The site doesn't normally open until April but because of how Easter fell Tom allowed us to book from 28th March. I can only reiterate previous reviews, the 5 pitches all have unrestricted views of the Wharf & top lock on the canal and there is always something to look at. The location is handy for the local area, we did two 6 mile circular walks from the site, the dog friendly pub 5min down the road is excellent and to top it off Tom is an extremely friendly and interesting character.

The weather, (beyond Tom's control) made the site very wet, but Tom's collection of tools & machinery rescued anyone in difficulty.

If you want CMC facilities & prices this site probably is not for you, but if you're happy to use your caravan/motorhome as they're intended then give this site a go.

We have just stayed 3 nights on pitch number one, what a fantastic location. The owners are lovely people. You can only book over the telephone and they don't even ask for a deposit. £15 a night, you can't go wrong. It has basic facilities but who cares with a view like this, right on the canal with the benefit of a lock to sit and watch the boats go through. They have even put a couple of benches for you to sit and chill with a drink and watch the world go by.

One of each toilet and the shower is in the ladies, but its no problem, its free.

Great location with a cafe, shop and pub across the road.

Can't wait to return.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

What an amazing 5 pitch caravan site run by Tom & Sue situated right by the canal & Grindley brook locks. We were greeted by Tom & taken to our pitch right next to the canal & shown the best way to pitch our caravan to get the best view & then given a run down on the area. Once settled we ventured for a lovely walk along the canal, opposite is a lovely cafe & a little further along the canal is a shop & garage & two pubs, one situated by the garage & another further along the canal. Walking in the opposite direction is Whitchurch. The pitches are flat grassed areas & very large all laid out so that each pitch has a good view of the canal. Their are a ladies & gents toilet immaculately clean, also a shower included in the cost of £15 per night. We enjoyed our stay that much that we didn't need to use the car once & have returned home completely rested. This is our first visit & we will definitely be returning again very soon! If you have dogs you will not find a better site.

We hadn't been back to this site for at least a year due to our house move so were delighted that Tom and Sue had space this weekend. It was just as welcoming and just as peaceful to sit and watch. We work all day talking to people so to just sit and be relaxed was just what the doctor ordered! despite the rain we had a lovely time and we booked to go back next month. Cant wait!

Thank you for saving our weekend, We were turned away from a neighbouring site as our booking allegedly was not recognised by the owner although a phone deposit was taken some 4 weeks previous. So it is thanks to the site owner at Grindley Brook who allowed us to stay at such short notice. The site itself was a fantastic little place 5 pitches overlooking the the top lock at Grindley brook wharf. The Lockside Cafe just a 2 minute walk away, great coffee and great food, a pub and shop(garage forecourt) just a 10 minute stroll down the canal Such a lovely site owner and a very clean toilet/shower block. We will almost certainly be returning there again. Thanks again for saving our weekend.

Wonderful peaceful site with very friendly owners. Next to canal with cafe, pub and shop, within 10 mins walk. First time there have booked for 2 more visits in September. Motor homers club site so open to members of any club. There are 2 fields 5 hook ups in each 6amp per pitch only but sufficient. Very pleasant stay we will visit as much as possible. Thanks Tom very nice man, made us very welcome.

Wonderful relaxing campsite. The owners are great. The pitches are thoughtfully arranged so as to minimise being 'overlooked' by the next unit. Plenty to see on the adjacent canal and locks. Pub, shop and cafe all within easy walking distance. Have just booked another visit. Second of many more to come we hope.

This is our 1st holiday of season, we go every year, We like the peace and quiet, and love sitting by the canal, The owners Tom & Sue are very friendly and helpful, no they don't like visitors, but this hospitality has been abused in the past, you can always meet visitors in the cafe, you can observe the site from there, there, s some lovely walks, and pubs in the area, nobodys mentioned the blue bell, go by car, lovely old pub, your made vety welcome and the food is all home cooked and yummy, this site is always on our list, you must book. Enjoy.

Reviewer: Ponciauman 11 reviews from this member

Was told about this site by a colleague and decided to give it a go. So glad we did, it is a little gem of a site, with 5 pitches all with their own electricity points. The site has separate male and female toilets both with WHB and one shower which is in the female toilet and costs 50 pence, no hardship considering the pitch cost.

The site is right on the canal next to the canal lock staircase, next to which is the lockside cafe, a nice cafe to have a snack, cuppa or both.

Walking out of the site and down under the bridge takes you along the tow path and to the Horse and Jockey (about 5 minutes) where they welcome 'children, dogs and muddy boots' and has a good selection of real ales as well as a nice menu typical of a gastro pub.

Further along the tow path (about 40 minutes) is another pub the Willey Brook which is also good.

Tom the owner of the site emphasis is on peace and quiet and can't do enough to help.

We loved it so did our two dogs, who slept like logs all night after walking all day.

Whitchurch is within a good walking distance along the canal and we would definitely recommend it and will be going back soon.

Stayed on this beautiful site for a week, it is in a perfect spot, I even sat and did my first painting of the lock. Tom couldn't do enough for you, so helpful and friendly. The toilets were spotless as mentioned before. The shower was a 50p coin and lasted 6 mins, sounds short but its plenty of time, also nice and hot too. The surrounding area is lovely, we ate a couple of times at the horse and jockey which was really nice. If you get the chance to stay here please do so. I highly recommend this site, and will def returned again soon.
