This review is for Furnace Moorings

Site is in a fantastic location next to the grand union canal however as mentioned by other reviewers it is also next to a main train line The location of the site is fantastic right next to the grand union canal in a lovely part of Northamptonshire - loads of lovely villages and scenery. We stayed at a weekend and though we noticed the trains during the day they didn't appear to start running too early on a Sunday however they did start running at 5.00 on Monday morning. If you stay longer then a couple of days I guess you'd get used to them or if your home address was noisy you probably wouldn't notice them but we live in a quiet rural area so I found them very noticeable on the Monday morning - though my husband who wears a hearing aid didn't notice the morning ones! There is a toilet on site and a shower - used via tokens purchased from the site owner - but we didn't use the shower so I can't comment on how good/bad it was. As a stop over for a couple of nights away the site was fine but I'm not sure I'd have wanted to stay longer then we did.

A very noisy site, pitches only max of 5 metres from busy train line. Due to noise and vibrations I had no sleep Friday night. Toilet, sink and shower all in one small prefab. Wanted the loo but somebody in shower( were in about 20mins) no other loo available. only 1 other van on certified part of site, but had 2 other large units on car park. Did not see owner at all. Lad came to collect money Sunday afternoon. Would not use this site again

This is a lovely site, it is peaceful once you get used to the trains (wasn't so busy over the weekend). The canal is peaceful with the barges drifting by. I didn't use any of the facilities but did meet Mr Collins Jr who was very polite and helpful. Not far from Northampton or Daventry, Would definately recommend.

This review is for Furnace Moorings

Just back from a stay at this pleasant site. Nice roomy pitches, never felt crowded, line of trees alongside pitches provided welcome shade as it was very hot. Severe thunderstorms with torrential rain and the site didn't flood at all. Toilet facilities are 1 cabin for all containing loo, basin with cold water and a good token operated shower at �1.50 for 7 minutes. Nothing posh but cleaned and maintained each morning by Roger (the friendly owner) who was often to be seen around keeping things ship shape. I only had to queue to use the facilities once. Site is located away from main roads and a busy canal runs alongside it as does the west coast mainline. I found after a bit I could filter out the train noise, apart from Saturday night when work on the line was done and I needed to use earplugs. My companion slept through the lot. Whilst there we visited Northampton which is really nice and has a good museum. There is a canal museum nearby and Bletchley Park is about 30 mins away. There is a late shop in the village, and if you are a lover of curios don't miss The Sun Inn. I expect to visit the site again in the future.
