 A very short stay whilst I was waiting for my car to be serviced. Reception was closed and I knocked on the farmhouse door to get booked in.

We found the site to be a quiet retreat with all the necessary facilities. It is a large site but divided into small areas of perhaps 10 or 12 units.

We had a hard standing pitch with an EHU which was a fairly level area given that the site as a whole is not flat. The grassed portion was quite wet and we didnít stray onto it.

The cafe and bar were both closed too, time of year I suppose.

The facilities were reasonably modern clean and presentable. Water and disposal areas were evident all over the site.

The fact is that whilst we were there the weather was pretty atrocious and we spent most of the time indoors reading. There are lanes and quiet roads where we walked the dog but we ate in and didnít venture out much.

The fishing pools would no doubt attract anglers and it was clear that local anglers used them too so I assume that they are worth the effort to attend.

Overall I think this camping site would be lovely in summer. It is a working farm and horse riding is available too.

We would certainly return to Charity Farm.

 Had a lovely stay, the site is really quiet but very family orientated. We were on a non electric field. The pitches are well laid out leaving plenty of room for children to play.

There are four fishing ponds which are really nicely laid out. The staff are really friendly and very helpful. Overall we found it really good value for money.

 Have been to this site before and enjoyed it. Not the most plush but nice enough. Sadly, we won't be back. If we left after 6 days we would have been ok but on the Thursday a large group turned up and the management was completely ineffective at controlling the noise.

Despite several calls about being kept awake way beyond the stated 11pm curfew, we were woken again at 1. 30am with them still at it. Had to ring again the night after for the same reason, same crowd.

Wish we had gone home earlier. Dreading the last night, more of the same I expect. Shame, liked it here otherwise. It seems that the money from large groups is more important than the sites reputation for a nice stay.

 Nice big field, all pitches are based around the edge, pitches clearly marked out. Plenty of space. Hire of firepit and BBQs. We took our own but had to use theirs, even though our was of the ground.

Facilities are good for washing up, clean toilets etc. Nice stay. Would go again.

 We have visited Charity farm twice in as many weeks.

Always a friendly welcome from the owners.

Pitches are a good size and generally level, water points within easy access both times.

The toilet facilities have always been clean, never had to use the showers but they look clean ( takes 50p coin)

No playground for kids BUT this hasn't bothered my little man as he's made friends with the other campers children easily enough and kids make up their own games easily enough.

First visit was with my partner and 2nd visit was just me and 4 year old son, both times I felt safe on site and wasn't worried about son's safety at all.

There's on site cafe which is reasonably priced and handy if the British weather decides to rain on your breakfast plans.

There's also a bar which I haven't tried out but seems to have a good stock of drinks in it,

I will be going back soon and would recommend this site.

 Went for the weekend to try out a new tent. Camping field is large and tents are sited round the sides keeping the centre clear so that football, cricket etc can be played in the centre.

Very sociable site with kids all playing together. Only 3 showers for whole site but that said we didn't queue long. Fire pits with wood were supplied for £12 a night.

First pitch we were given was in front of a gate that had previously been gravelled so we couldn't get pegs in. They quickly moved us when we said and apologised.

Fishing lakes and nice dog exercising area available to use.

Reviewer: Vangoman1 3 reviews from this member

 Nice caravan site. Very quiet. Cost 50p for showers but well worth the money as they are hot and powerful and the toilets and showers were very clean.

The only thing that we did not like was the three legged stool in the showers that we thought was a little bit dangerous as it was very easy to tip up, we had to be very careful as being older could easily fall and hurt yourself.

The site is quiet and also has a good cafe with good selection of food. All in all quite a good site and would stay again.

 We used this site as a stopover coming down from Scotland to avoid the horrendous winds on the motorway that was the tail end of a hurricane.

Very difficult to judge a site on a one night stopover in howling winds and torrential rain. No site would have looked that good in those conditions.

Not impressed at being kept at the farmhouse door for over 10 minutes getting drowned considering we had called ahead to book.

I get the impression this site is geared up for fisherman/campers as there are 4 lakes to fish and the majority of people on site were there to fish.

The showers are a key code which we didn't use but the toilets were clean except for people who seemed to have strewn toilet paper throughout the cubicles, not the sites fault though. TV and phone reception were good.

There is a cafe/bar on site in what appears to be an old Nissen Hut but very bright inside. In fact we used it in the morning for bacon rolls and very nice they were too.

The site I believe is split into 4 sections each with a pretty basic chemical waste disposal and water tap.

Access to the site was OK but care should be taken on the final mile or so on the quite narrow windy road.

As I say, a night stopover in terrible conditions would not show the site in it's best light.

We would use it as a stopover again though.
