Reviewer: Rachel 1 review from this member

 Lovely setting, so quiet and really uncrowded. There were approx 8 tents or small groups of campers spread out over two fields; you'd be hard pushed to find a campsite where you only had one other group of campers in your field during a school-summer-holiday weekend, but that's exactly what we had at Merrylands!

I woke up to the sound of nightingales each morning, and fell asleep to the gushing of the stream nearby. Maggie was really amiable and the stars and campfires were lush.

There was absolutely no reception for Vodafone but it gave me a pleasant excuse to turny phone off and relax.

Unfortunately a combination of bad weather prior to our arrival and a covid-related lack of gravel on the track meant getting the car into and out of the campsite was a very muddy affair which meant a few vehicles needed a push, but I think this was very much a case of unfortunate extenuating circumstances.

 Love this place, such a chilled out campsite, pitch up where you like, get a fire going (good priced wood), no phone service, perfect for a back to basics getaway.

Will be returning.

No toilets but given a portable toilet and a tent if needed to put it in.

Wood fired showers (didn't use).

 Merrylands is a lovely relaxed campsite run on eco principals with a hippy vibe. The owners are friendly and on hand to help.

The location is beautiful and there are lots of walks starting from the site with great pubs in walking distance.

The campsite facilities are basic so this isn't the place for you if you like banks of showers, washing up blocks and sparkling children's activities.

For me, that was exactly why I really liked it and will be coming back!

 We had a great stay recently at Merrylands. Warm welcome, beautiful, peaceful location and an easy going vibe in camp.

Our own toilet tent worked out fine and plenty of fire wood available.

Loved the various walks around camp and discovering the local pubs.

The gelato ice cream van visit to camp was also a nice surprise.

Felt fully relaxed after our stay.

Thank you and hopefully see you again soon!

 Just spent 3 lovely nights at Maggies lovely campsite. She’s a very nice woman snd she makes your stay simple and comfortable. This is not buzz cut grass and high-end camping, this is proper camping.

You can make your own fires wherever you want, the kids went exploring and swimming in the stream and came back from a little pool with newts snd tadpoles.

The fields are open with loads of room for games and space for everyone.

All the other campers nearby were friendly. Hot water showers, composting loos, bird song everywhere.

We had a wicked stay. Our second time here and we’ll deffo go back, probably this summer even.

Couple of nice pubs nearby too!

Reviewer: MissEllie2020 3 reviews from this member

 Very basic but chilled out. If you want manicured lawns and spotless facilities this is not the site for you.

If you want to let your kids run free and chill out round a fire then you are in luck! Great walks to pub nearby.

We will return soon. Thanks

 Something like our fifth or sixth visit. Lovely as ever. No frills and no complaints.

Firewood a bargain compared to other sites. Covid issues handled thoughtfully. And you generally get to see a spitfire overhead.

 Lovely as ever. Came twice this August and the covid adaptations are great. (portable compost loo for each family, regularly changed)

Well done Maggie and Sean!
