Just returned from a weekend camping at this site. What a lovely peaceful site. You really get a feel of being away from it all - and so quiet - despite the tent area being full! We spent the evenings gazing at the stars in the massive sky. 

You get to the site by a long gravel road - a little bumpy and a few potholes but not too bad. The site itself feels away from it all as is surrounded by open fields. There are numerous footpaths nearby so great area for walking and the owners will even loan you os maps (for a deposit). 

The campsite itself is small with only 6 or seven tent spaces and about 20 caravan pitches. You are allocated pitches when you book but these are spacious. 

The owners are very friendly and helpful and the facilities are spotless. All the tent spaces were allocated when we visited and with 2 ladies toilets and 1 shower we thought that be a problem - but we never had to queue at all. 

The shower/toilet/washing block was close by for all the tents and the shower room had plenty of space with window shelf and stool and hooks for clothes. 

The shower itself was powerful enough with plenty of hot water and was free and not time controlled. The site was well cared for with the grass recently cut and all the pitches had a tree or hedge nearby so it was a nice sheltered site. 

Access to the tent area was separate from the caravan access so we had very little traffic through the tent area. 

There was info on local amenities in the amenities block and the owners were keen to hear feedback on what was good/cpould be improved. We struggled to find anything that would improve the stay apart from a hairdryer in the wash block would have been nice. 

Closest pub is Fox & Goose in Coombe Bissett (5-10mins away) and we had a lovely meal there. There is a small shop in the village but it has limited opening hours. 

This is a gem of a site - so quiet, friendly and relaxed owners and spotless facilities - and great value. We will be back!
