 The site is small and relevantly well run staff where polite on arrival and showed us all the facilities. The pub itself is fantastic and staff where more then accommodating during our stay.

I have to say the washrooms where horrendous which really put a a bit of a dampener on the trip. They looked like they had not been cleaned all weekend and the was no toilet roll on occasions.

I found the access gate to the site a little tight and the is a whopping great big container which is poorly sited making the access a little tricky for larger caravans.

I don't think I would rush back with such a young family

 Lovely campsite with loads of flat pitches.

Beautiful surroundings and the pub is amazing! Great food and opens for breakfast, does takeaways too.

Only negative is the toilet/shower facilities.

There's only one loo and one shower! Really needs rethinking by management as it's such a nice site.

 Stay here with family as it was our brother in law 60th birthday,

Campsite brill beautiful trees on grassed areas

Lovely view

Friendly people on site

We did get told off twice for being a wee bit loud in night time but it was 11. 30 but staff was lovely about it and we did lower noise.

Had plenty drinks food in bar, bit dear but omg food out this world

Staff was so lovely polite friendly.

The only downside to campsite is one toilet and one shower in ladies, need more showers an toilets

But apart from that an awesome site bar and campsite

Will be coming back again as we loved it and plenty walks around area

Fabulous I would rate it 8/10

 First weekend away after lock down.

Pub and staff really good and friendly. Great service

Facilities ok. Nice views accross countryside.

Entrance to the site quiet tight. Wouldnt take a lot to widen the entrance.

Pitches not the best, some a bit sloopy, but overall for the money worth it.

Will go again

 Good points - tent pitch was good and access to nice walk from the site. Playground was good to have on site

Bad points - do not take good measures with Covid-19 hygiene in facilities. The cleaning sheet advising when toilet/shower were cleaned only showed once on the Friday lunchtime to Sunday when we checked out. They ask you to shut the door, I assume so it limits the people (itís a small space), however people just walk in as the lock is broken.

There is a pack of surface wipes resting on top of the mirror which didnít give me much hope on how deep they were actually cleaned. On Sunday the rubbish bin was overflowing with paper towels.

There is only one shower which has one toilet cubicle and itís where the outside seating area is for the pub. I felt awkward waiting with my daughters shower stuff whilst people were eating.

Also the site is next to a road which does have large trucks go down early on the morning. If you are used to a bit of traffic noise it wouldnít affect you.

 The pub is staffed by extremely friendly and helpful people who serve extremely good food, also lots of friendly local people.

The campsite is mainly grass but has a few hardstanding ones.

 A gem of a campsite well marked and laid out. Ideal for the Sandstone trail.

Got a nice welcome from the Staff on arrival was able to pick my own pitch, as the site was quite No Other tents.

Nice friendly atmosphere in the pub, which serves a good variety of food at reasonable prices

Toilets lovely and clean only one shower.

All in all good value £10 for one man tent.

 Came back yesterday from a 2 night stay, its a lovely site, right next to the sandstone trail, a steep walk but lovely, the dog loved it.

The site was fine, the pub was great, very friendly, Dog was allowed in while we had a drink and something to eat.

There was only one shower and toilet, but it was kept very clean and nice - no charge for hot water, and as the site wasn't very busy it was ok. All in all a nice weekend - just right for us - for campers with kids - no play area but lots of room for ball games

 Booked this site for August Bank Holiday as we were visiting friends in the area. Beautiful area with plenty of walks & places to visit. We arrived mid afternoon & checked in at the main bar. The young man showed us to our pitch & pointed out all the necessaries such as toilets, water points, waste etc. He was very polite & made us feel very welcome.

The site itself is behind the pub in a sloping field. The pitches were rather small & could have done with a tidy up as the grass was quite long & bits of sticks & stones were scattered but overall ok. We ate in the pub & it was really good & reasonably priced too. Nice atmosphere & the staff were very attentive. The big let down of this site is the toilet block. There is one loo & one shower for the women & same for the men & they are really old & very tatty but clean. The shower turns to a dribble when there is water being used elsewhere & the door was useless & the chemical disposal was disgusting. One last couple of moans, we were on pitch number one & the pub staff were constantly burning rubbish next to us & we were worried at one point about the embers landing on our awning. Felt a bit awkward having them all sat on the wall next to us smoking too if I'm honest & wasps were a real nuisance.

That aside we paid £60 for 3 nights with hook up & we did have a good time. I have to say, I think the pub is great & I would go back to this place. I would like The Bickerton Poacher to update its facilities as we really would like to go back but the scruffy facilities does make me think I'd try somewhere else first
