A great feeling of freedom and loads of space per pitch. 09/08/2016

    Loved the huge tent pitches which were marked out in the meadow by mown Lollipop shapes and felt like we had our own little private garden.
    The water points were enough that it didn't feel like a slog every time we filled up.
    The staff were very friendly.
    It was really peaceful during the day .
    There is woodland around the edges of the field where we camped .
    Each pitch has an area of cinders for a fire pit.
    We took our little solar chargers and were able to stand them out without fear of a football landing on them.

    The Toilets are composting and there are instructions for the uninitiated.
    Two shower pods are available, one shower in each. They are very quaint from outside being converted from Horse boxes.
    The insides are spacious and the showers looked luxurious ,we did not try them but I imagine a parent could easily take kids in and each take a turn while the others dry and dress.

    There is a little shop, also in a horse box. A blackboard nearby has opening times.

    Although one cannot have a car next to the pitch ,there is a car parking area and ample wheelbarrows are available for toing and froing to the pitches themselves. Little tiny barrows were also lined up so the littlies could join in.

    We saw two wash up stations with hot water .
    The compost loos are at either end of the camp . I think there were two near the entrance and 2 on the opposite side and even though the site seemed quite busy when we were there, there was not a queue.

    The rubbish disposal system is wheelie bins with descriptions of the contents and is separated into recyclable and non recyclable.

    The whole thing felt organic and natural and we would come again but next time we will be prepared for the niggles and so avoid them.

    Disliked: 

    There is almost no sign posting. We stopped at the farm and someone (in a car) told us the camp site was up the hill. On driving up the hill, we followed the road to the left and saw private houses. Luckily a resident was standing in her drive and we asked the way to the camp site .it was back and to the right through a gate but no signs to say so.

    The horse Flies. We were bitten from the moment we arrived till the day we left.
    I think the site should have a sign explaining they are a problem and sell insect repellent creams etc. (at least in the months they are prevalent).
    (In future we will bring our own)

    The pitch we were on at the edge beside the woods, was not quite level which meant when sleeping on an air mattress, one or other of us would wake up leaning up against the tent wall. Not too much of a problem in sunny weather which we had, but if it had been raining , I think we would have been getting wet.

    None of the bins is marked as a dog poo bin. We don't have a dog and didn't actually see any dog poo in the field but just outside in the lane, someone had discarded about 20 filled blue dog poo bags which I assume they had left on departure after finding no where to dispose of them. I don't expect that went down well with the locals.

    The cycle path, right beside the camp, is really just a bridleway you are 'allowed' to cycle on. Our poor road bikes couldn't manage it.

    There is virtually no phone signal or wifi signal. This wasn't a problem for entertainment (we brought games and books) but was frustrating for looking up routes and family could not reach us when they tried. (will bring paper maps in future ) .
    We walked to Hastingleigh via (very overgrown) footpath/bridlepath and there was no phone signal there either and the pub where we hoped to lunch does not open at all during the day (obviously nothing to do with the campsite but just so that you know...) Luckily we had taken water and biscuits.
    The GPS signal is a bit flakey close to sunny field too but improved once the phone was connected to the car.

    For three nights (friday ,saturday, sunday) we had to listen to music coming across the fields(I think it came across the valley behind the site) and on at least one night,it was still playing at 3am. (will bring ear plugs in future) .
