This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

We were made more than welcome on arrival and shown to our pitch.

This review is for Barford Top Camping & Caravan Site

We were made more than welcome on arrival and shown to our pitch. The Barn is an added extra for social gatherings and the sun sets in the evenings were breath taking. I would have given 5* if it had not be for the fact we had been charged for the dog and then told we would have to go off site to exercise her. I appreciate it is a working farm, but then they should not charge extra. Also the price had increased since booking.

This review is for Barford Top Camping & Caravan Site

Great idea from the owners putting sofas and tables in the barn for evening socials should you wish. Everything you would want in a CS site. Foxton locks is a must to visit. Great stair case lock with pubs and eating outlets either side of the staircase lock. The owners will talk you through other attractions in the area, and give you a handy booklet with these listed as well as any emergency numbers if you need them. You have to buy an electricity card for those using EHU. We had the �5 card which still had units left on after 3 days and we do use electric as we don't skimp on luxuries when away, but the inclusive price was on a par with other CS sites we have stayed at. We would definitely return to this site and recommend it to others.

I was a little anxious about how I would manage but I needn't have worried, Wendy and Maurice were so welcoming and friendly. They showed me around the very good facilities and assured me of their help should I need it. As it happens I had no problems and enjoyed a quiet stay of just 1 night but I will be back again.

We were in the area for a wedding and chose this site, and are we glad we did it was perfect.

This review is for Barford Top Camping & Caravan Site

We were in the area for a wedding and chose this site, and are we glad we did it was perfect. Wendy and Maurice went out of their way to make us feel welcome. They had an information pack for us which told us everything we required about the area. The barn was very useful for the people staying in tents although we were in a caravan and didn't use it much. We felt as though we were part of the family and their hospitality was second to none. We would certainly stay there again if in the area and would highly recommend this site to others.
