Hidden gem of a campsite

Thurlow - 17/05/2024

5

What you can glean from the website is that this is a very well set-up campsite with excellent amenities, etc. And you won't be disappointed on that score.What isn't so obvious is what surrounds you. There's a superb view from the site for a start. A very short wander away is a lovely woods with paths you can walk, either to exercise your dogs, go for a run, or just listen to the morning/evening chorus. The bottom of the woods leads to a another path along what seems to be an old railway route, and that in turn leads to a canalside path with wildlife, great views and serenity.There are small towns with pubs, restaurants, cafes and other interests a short walk away in either direction too.I only stayed because I was entering a cycling event nearby, but I'll definitely be back to explore, relax and enjoy sometime very soon.I don't often write reviews, but I loved this place so much, I had to make an exception this time!

Premium rates for poor facilities

Pitches not level, toilets and showers too far away and to add insult to injury, very poorly maintained, toilets not cleaned in several days that we were there

Restricted arrival time and noisy in camping field

Ardern, Ben - 10/05/2024

2

Minimum nights stay and you can't pitch up after 7pm, which is too restrictive when travelling more than an hour or two away. We were only camping in the main field. Could have given the code for the gate and directions of where to pitch.The toilets in the middle of the site were closed and new ones were at the top of the campsite. Furthest away from the tent camping. Finally, in the camping field there was a humming sound from some plant equipment, which didn't stop all night. Not the best experience.

Fabulous site..As a solo camper I felt very safe here..Showers and toilets pristine clean and showers piping hot..Grounds are lovely with fabulous views..Staff all very friendly and welcoming..Pitch size is huge.. The one think I would say as a slight negative is I felt the hard standing I was on needed redoing as it wasn't very level...

Not a very welcoming

McGrady, Tim - 27/04/2024

It seemed like I was being a disturbance, upon arrival. A hand drawn outline of where the pitch was. No information of where water or which facilities are not open. Grounds very overgrown, appreciate it had been wet but there were areas that had been cut visible. Track was very potholed. We chose this location to visit family.Hardwick House and grounds are worth a visit
