White House Farm CL
Just had a lovely couple of days at this relatively new CL. Easy to find though care needed approaching site entrance as it can easily be overshot as signs not seen until almost on top of them. Lovely pitching area, high up with fabulous views towards Rugby in the distance. Lots of wind turbines nearby & some would say spoil the view, but we didn't think so. Plenty of room for 4 vans though 5 might be a little tight. Water tap just outside pitching area & CWDP behind the green barn. Didn't really hear any road noise & very quiet & relaxing. Lots of walks from the site & nearby. Angela the owner is lovely & very helpful & often leaves you a couple of fresh eggs first thing if you want them. We saw Red kites, kestrels, buzzards, sparrowhawk & a green woodpecker. This CL should do well & all the best to Angela for all her hard work.
Lovely panoramic views
We had a last minute short weekend break at White house farm and had a very quiet and restful stay. The paddock area reserved for caravans and motor homes was well maintained and very quiet. We had the whole area to ourselves. I am not sure why as it is a lovely spot. I can only think that it is a new CL and still a bit of a hidden gem. There are stunning views all around and we enjoyed two nights of beautiful sunsets and a full moon. There are lots of places to go and walk straight from the farm so it is ideal for dogs. It is a short drive to West haddon where The Pytchley pub does excellent food. There are 3 pubs in West Haddon and I believe some take away food shops and more pubs in Long Buckby. We didn’t eat out on this trip but have been to The Pytchley on other occasions. We haven’t tried any in Long Buckby so can’t comment. It was easy to access the farm although perhaps a sign pointing into the field you drive through would be helpful as you don’t notice that there is a track to drive on in the field almost until you turn into it, which confused us a little. The site owner was very welcoming and gave us some local information and some eggs from the farm which were very tasty. There is a farm shop. We didn’t use it but the site owner told us you could purchase eggs and honey. The site also had some holiday lets which could be handy if meeting others who don’t have a van or motorhome. It was quite a long way to the bin which was not an issue for us but others may prefer one be provided closer to the caravan area as being in a small van requires lots of trips to the bin. Especially in wasp season. There is a recycling box next to the farm. This site would make a lovely stop over point to break up a longer journey as well as an ideal place to retreat to away from the noise and crowds of towns and cities. We had a lovely stay and will be keen to revisit often.
A hidden gem
White House Farm is just how we like a CL.........quiet, well away from main roads, on firm grass with fabulous far reaching open countryside views. Very friendly and welcoming owner and family. With easy approach roads from the M1. A real gem!! We will definitely return.
Directions : From junction 18 on the M1, take A428 to Crick. Straight over 2 roundabouts for 5 miles approximately. Turn left to Cold Ashby and follow bend to left and we are on the next left. SatNav will also bring you direct.
