Perfect for a local getaway!

We've stayed here twice recently, once in our twin axle caravan and this weekend in our motorhome. It has three hardstandings and a grass area of which we camped on during the Christmas period in the caravan. It was a little soft underfoot, but doable.We stayed on a hardstanding this time around. There's EHU, a place to empty grey water and the loo cassette. The site is lovely and quiet. Nearby is the Mill at Rode (a sort of gastro pub) which is very pleasant. We've stopped off for a couple of starters, as we didn't want a full blow meal. Good service - midrange prices. There is a pub in the village that we haven't visited yet, but it's on the agenda for another time. We know the area well, as we don't live far away, but it's worth a visit to Bradford on Avon to walk along the canal, the Tythe Barn and the town It's pretty and has a beautiful old bridge over the River Avon. Stop off at the Lock Inn Cafe run by Dick and Jane for some tasty good value food. Try the Boatmans Breakfast if you dare. It's a monster of a meal! It does get busy, because it's a great place to stop by, but bare with the queue to order and you won't be disappointed. We will visit again, as it's such a great place to chill out and wind down.


Quiet away from it all CL

CL owner Sarah pleasant and helpful, charges are £12 per night inc. EHU. Smallish sheltered paddock with some mainly immature trees. Part hard standing part grassed pitches are easy to site on. Ground flat-ish, we used levelling blocks on a pair of steadies to even out the undulating grass. River Frome not 100 metres away has pleasant walks along its banks. Strongly recommend the Cross Keys about a ten minute walk away in village centre for food and drinks. Little or no road noise but seems to be on a helicopter flight path not that they disturbed, more a point of note as it was unusual. Access to the CL requires care, the gateway isn’t tight but bends away. The track leading passed the farm house and outbuildings is twisty & narrow in parts but isn’t a problem if taken slowly. I saw a large twin axle with big car on site so they obviously made it. One point of minor irritation are the very inquisitive chickens. No doubt there is a cuteness factor as they range freely but is quickly replaced by the fact they get everywhere as they look for things to eat, probably because visitors have fed them in the past. Feeding means poohing and not so good is walking the evidence onto our van’s carpets! Have stayed here before when chickens weren’t in evidence. All that aside would recommend this CL.


A corker of a CL!

This is a lovely CL with welcoming and helpful owners. There are information leaflets, recycling and fresh eggs, all of which make it more than just a basic CL. Listening to the lambs bleeting in the neighbouring fields and watching the chickens wandering round, make you feel like you are a million miles from anywhere, but in reality within 20-30 minutes drive you can reach major towns and facilities. Would definately recommend this site and will most definately be back!! :o)


Superb CL site

We've stayed here a few times now and it ticks all my boxes. Peaceful site with three pubs in walking distance! The owners are incredibly helpful and even volunteered to drive me to hospital when I rather stupidly burned my hand on the stem of my Braai! Would highly recommend.


Lovely site

Very pleasant site, some hard standing . Well kept




Directions : Turn left off the A36 Bath - Warminster in Woolverton immediately past The House at Woolverton into road signposted Rode. Site on the right in 1 mile immediately past river bridge.
