We have been here a couple of times now as not only is it a great site to stay at but for us it is also a great site to over night when we travel to the west side of the country and Wales. Site owner is very helpful and loads of information are provided when you arrive. No toilet block or electric hook ups but thats fine for us. Recycling facillities, water etc are clean and tidy plus they have a solar battery charger which is great for those who need it. Dogs love the field as lots of critters including a very plump squirrel obviously wander over the site - so lots of sniffs. We will definately be coming back here time and again.
First visit of many..
Great location for this beautifully maintained small site, which is a credit to the owner. The site itself has limited facilities - but those that are there, are very well done - rubbish recycling, chemical waste, fresh water, a natty solar unit for recharging gadgets and a chimnea! If you're self contained, this is bliss.. Access to the site is very good and the owner extremely welcoming. There are some lovely walks from the site, and wildlife abounds. We watched a tiny Muntjac deer from the van on Saturday, listened to a number of Owls each night and marveled at numerous Red Kite and Buzzards on our walks (I recommend the walk to Great Tew and a beer at the Falkland Arms)
A future CL of the Year?
This is a beautiful site. A large lawned field bordered with mature hedging and mixed tree planting. Cared for by a delightful owner. It has a tidy, high quality disposal and re-cycling point. Choice of hard standing or well drained grass. Picnic tables provided and a barbecue/fire pit area. Easy wide turn in with wide entrance and gate. A clever solar re-charging point built by the owner is available for free. For those without a solar panel or generator this could extend your stay. Which might be a good idea as there is a sliding scale of site fees. The longer you stay the less you per night. Now why don't a few more sites consider that? To be honest you won't need any incentives to stay - the hardest part is leaving. This site is a credit to it's owner who has done a magnificent job in developing it from scratch four years ago and who is still looking for opportunities to further meet the needs of his guests. We'll be back before it becomes CL of the year - that may be very soon
Visited for a weekend Friday evening until Monday, John the owner is very helpful and met us there, it was the first time for years we have gone "off grid" but wanted to try the Solar Panel out we have on our caravan. Worked a treat, even watched 12v TV. The site is very peaceful and we had it to ourselves Sat and Sun night, the facilities i.e. the water and waste points, fresh water, and recycling are really excellent and well constructed, better than some commercial sites I've been to, the whole site is laid out to a very high standard, credit to John the owner. Top and bottom of the site are reasonably level and there is a hardstanding which would suit a motorhome, the main site is sloping and you would need levelling blocks. We saw bats at the top of the site and some we think were kestrels flying around. The village is very nice and has a pub which is walkable, we may try the menu next time. Overall I can't fault this site, one of the best CL's we have stayed at, intend to return very soon.
Directions : Follow the signpost on grass island on the A361 "The Barfords". Keep straight on this road for 630 meters. Just outside the village and past the speed limit signs is your destination signed “Newton Grove” and the CL will be on the right.
