This is a Certificated Site (CS). A small campsite that accepts just five caravans or motorhomes. Some of these CS’s accept tents, space permitting. CSs are often quieter, smaller places to camp, with many offering minimal facilities – ideal for when you want to get away from it all.
2.25 acres, mainly level. Booking advisable. Very large units should check with owner for alternative access details.

The conservation walk around the farm is a must.

What a lovely clean friendly site, nice & peaceful, owners made us feel very welcome, unisex toilets were spotless,
Well & truly off the beaten track, we had a large caravan and didn't meet any oncoming vehicles going or leaving, I think that was just luck.
We will definitely return.

Found this site to be friendly.The site was kept clean,Sylvia was around the site cleaning.Toilets are in a unisex portacabin but no problems.Had to pay for showers 50p but lasted long enough and were hot.Only real problem was the towing as the roads are really narrow and you need to hope there is no farm traffic coming the other way otherwise you may have trouble.No play area for children but all children played together so no need really.

A very friendly welcome from the owner, her husband and the geese!
Good hot showers and washing up facilities.
However, we were somewhat disappointed with the state of the cabin - this was not the fault of the owners but caused by the children 'playing', paper towel scraps on the floor, footprints on a toilet seat, a broken (but quickly repaired) wc handle. Members really should control their children. On one occasion I remonstrated with some children who were playing with the field water supply and mentioned this to one of their parents who apologised and thanked me.
A word of warning - when approaching from Shave Cross, go slowly and be prepared to turn (left) into the site as soon as you see the sign which is only visible a few metres away.
Would we go again YES but possibly not during the school holidays.
The owners of this campsite are extremely friendly and you can expect a warm welcome. The site has a unisex toilet and shower block which was always kept extremely clean. Within the block is a washing up area, equipped with everything you need. Sylvia has also thoughtfully placed numerous leaflets and maps for attractions and places of interest in the area along with discount vouchers which we made regular use of. There are also freezer facilities which you can access yourself and in the hot weather we had to begin with this was very useful! The site is a working farm and we were lucky enough to be pitched next to a sheep with 2 lambs and a field of cows with playful calves.
We ventured to the pub down the road and found the food to be average and expensive. However, there is another pub a little bit further away (details at the campsite) and the food was much more reasonably priced with a friendly atmosphere.
We had to cut our trip short as the weather turned rather downhill but I am sure we will be going back in the future.
