 The site is very easy to find. It is a quite traditional village setting. Very quiet which is what we were looking for.

The pub is a traditional Thatched building. Quite low beams so be warned or you may end up with a sore head.

The field is quite flat with lots of pitches available. We were charged 5/night which is really cheap for the area.

There is a nice, clean toilet on site which is open from about 8am till about 11pm so not great if you have kids however, we took a portaloo with us so this wasn't a problem.

There is however no shower block or washing up facilities so you will need to take the required bits with you. There is a fresh, cold water tap outside so water is available 24 hours a day.

There are trees all round the field which keeps the wind off quite nicely however, there is little in the way of shade as the sun covers the whole field over the course of the day.

With Stansted airport being so close, there are planes taking off and landing almost 24 hours a day but you don't notice it after the first few have flown over.

All in all, this is a great site for 'family time' or a romantic weekend without the kids.

 We found the site very easily. We met the owner Daren in the pub, a very pleasant man. We were charged 5 a night even though we had a 9 man tent with only 2 of us staying in it. There was only another 2 tents there with men who I think were using it as a base to go to work.

The field was spacious and surrounded by bushes. There are houses behind the bushes at the left hand side and the local kids have made a camp in the corner of the woods, we saw them a few times but that was not a problem.

There was water (looked like a stream) on the left too and as we had the hottest weekend the water was stagnant and smelly. We were lucky and had camped on the right with no smell. You can see planes take off and land but this did not bother us.

The people in the pub are very friendly and came and spoke to us. The meals were very reasonable priced burger and chips 5.95 and minted lamb with mash and 3 veg was just under 12, I think that was the most expensive meal on offer the portions were large and displayed beautifully. Very wide choice of menu and it changed on our second day (sunday) offering roast beef dinner I think about 7.

For a pub in the middle of nowhere it got packed as the overflow car park was full people used the bottom of the field to park. The beer garden was full and kids played on the bouncy castle provided free of charge.

The toilets were the cleanest I have seen. There was a fresh drinking water tap in the garden for you to fill up on. We had a great weekend there. It was so good that we will be there next weekend for the bank holiday.

 To find this site is a doddle, with great access from the M11 and A120 and finding it is straight forward, it is on the edge of the small village and sign posted well.

On arrival we were met by the owner / landlord who was very pleasant and friendly and advised us where to go and also that the toilets are in the pub, none outside, so your own is needed if you need to go during the night and early morning. He also advised where the water tap was.

This is a basic field with no electric hook ups or marked pitches, but this is not a problem as the field is pretty large and easy enough to find a pitch around the edge or middle. The field is very flat so pitching is not a problem either. I found the field very tidy too and fenced off to stop anyone just driving in.

This is located fairly close to the flight path for Stansted airport and yes you can see and hear the planes when they take off very clearly, but they are fairly infrequent and only interrupt the peace for a short while.

The pub itself serves all the mainstream drinks, Stella, Fosters and a good range of bitters, wines and spirits, We ate there too and the service was fast and efficient and a reasonably priced menu. The food was lovely with all the meat being sourced locally and this made for a very tasty burger and ham, egg and chips.

The toilets in the pub are lovely, they have just be done up and had a spanking new floor and very clean toilets and sinks. There are no showers at the site.

There is a shop opposite selling most essentials, including bread, bacon, milk, newspapers and lots more. A tad pricey but the convenience of not having to drive anywhere makes it worthwhile. I understand there is another, larger shop a short walk away in the village but did not go there.

We only stopped for the one night so did not visit any of the surrounding area, however there is a fair bit to see and do if you came for longer.

Overall a good site and would return for a local one nighter, especially when it was just 5 for me in my campervan.

 Hi, the public house is very tranquil looking and the hosts are very friendly. The food is plentiful and large servings. The campsite is in the field behind the pub. The washing/toilet facilities are inside the pub so when the pub is closed, so is your access to toilets. That said, we were only charged a very small fee to pitch and as we were only there for two nights, it didn't bother us. If you are looking for a very simple, no frills site, no hook up, this is it. There was a children's play area on the pub grounds. Be warned. It is directly in line with the Stansted airfield landing strip, but again, got use to the noise and didn't bother us. The village shop just over the road sells basic shopping products and again friendly or you can walk the two miles to the next village.
