Questions:- (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Bessacarr 769 tag axle – 8.56m)
What are the pitches like?
A mix of grass and hard-standings with grass to the side. Good sized pitches. Easy to level up
Is there water on each pitch?
Yes. Plus a communal tap by the service area
What is the electric like?
Excellent, absolutely no problems
This is a working farm and you are asked to dispose of grey water in the hedges (no chemicals)
What’s the site access like?
Good access from the main road onto the lane on which the farm is located, which is fairly narrow. Clear signage at the entrance. Follow the track up past the farmhouse and follow the signs – very clear and easy.
What are the Sanitary facilities like?
There are no facilities at this site.
What other facilities are there?
Bins (general and recycling) and CWD
Homemade biscuits, farm eggs, soap and kindling available with an honesty box at reasonable prices. Felicia will also baked cakes and scones to order – highly recommended!
Dog walking ‘maze’ in front of the pitches (plus fields with public bridleways)
Grass area for games (we set up badminton and also played boules). On here there is also a big firepit for camper’s use
Felicia is a lovely lady and easily contactable. She keeps the service area extremely clean, and provides a pack to campers which includes several suggested walks from the campsite
Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?
Not that I’m aware of – ours works perfectly
How much is it?
We paid £16 per night including electric – remember this is in July.
What’s the area like?
Transport would be helpful. It’s a nice area, but not a huge amount to do. We ate in The Red Lion in Myddle and got fish and chips from Baschurch. We also used the farm shop just beyond Baschurch (although this was pretty expensive, and was VERY busy, and a little disorganised, on our 2nd visit)
Yes – if ever in the area; although we wouldn’t go back to the area unless we had a reason to – if you see what I mean!
The friendly welcome and clear signage
The information provided
The views and the pitch
Felicia asked for feedback, and seemed to take onboard our, minor, suggestions
We didn’t like so much:-
No negatives regarding the site
We headed on to the Derbyshire Dales, to yet another wonderful site 🙂 (Beechcroft Farm)
