Our CL is basic but tranquil set in a quiet 1.5 acre site, which is an old paddock with plenty of space. The field is fairly level but has some humps which are the remains of old ridge and furrow. There is a small brook which runs through adjacent fields. The site has an agricultural feel as opposed to being a neatly manicured club site. It is surrounded by farm land which will have tractors working on them at certain times of the year. There is an unfenced irrigation reservoir adjacent which you may wander around or fish, although it is not commercially stocked. It is very peaceful and the reservoir attracts many species of bird and is often almost noisy with birdsong.

There is a good footpath to the side of the site, but this involves going over 2 stiles. If you prefer, the 3 mile long gated road has very little traffic and is very pleasant to walk or cycle down. It goes from Haunton to Wigginton, and there is The Crown pub waiting for you at the end of your walk.

Reasonably priced with no irritating add ons, offering a quiet get away, well behaved dogs are also welcome

Access poor

The access is via a single track road with passing places, through a village and then along a another narrow track. The entrance is set back so easily missed as one elderly caravanner found to his cost. There is no Caravan site sign and the farm sign is in dark green hidden by brambles. We were told to shut the gate even if we found it open. That gate has not been shut in years and was impossible to lift. The entrance was overgrown with brambles which we tried to cut so they did not scratch the van.They grow quickly but it was obvious that the site was administered from a distance. The chemical emptying point was accessed through nettles. The day we were at the Arboretum a man came and spent the whole day STRIMMING an acre and a half. It drove the other people mad. Grass covered all our belongings around the van and the van sides to window level. We were not amused.He returned and parked next to our van at 8.45am and began strimming the rest of the site. Peace and quiet? There are two permanent vans on the site but there are ample EHU and water taps. This site could be lovely with some attention.


Grass views sunsets hook ups = peace

First... We are and have been for last 25 years dedicated CL users. Often choosing sites without hookups, but even we need some warmth on frosty late October/early November nights. So if you are wanting to compare with club sites probably skip this review. This is a lovely, quiet, peaceful site and we spent 5 nights here as October passed to November, we had some bright sunny crisp days, with some gorgeous sunsets. Yes at one side there are poultry sheds, but they are quite some distance away. The approach is a little bumpy, but is rewarded becauseif you want peace and quiet, this is lovely. If you don't... Why are you looking here! Hook ups are full 16 amps, there are plenty of taps and the disposal point does the job. I did not meet the owner but correspondence by e mail was first rate including sending out a welcome letter with lots of useful info, which was a first, as was being able to pay by bank transfer, simplicity itself. Oh and £50 for 5 nights that's good value! I liked this site and hope to visit again.


Simple and Pleasant Site.

We accessed this site from M42/J11 (the east) and via the Clifton Road route through Clifton Camperville, and it was very wide for an A-road never mind a country lane! Easy access, whereas the access from the west via Harlaston is quite tight with passing places, so some care would be needed. The site is as described by Louise the owner who we only dealt with via phone/text, and is a simple unpretentious, bucolic place. We found the combined ehu/water very handy, and we loved the site's grassy simplicity. We only found time locally for The Green Man in Clifton which gave us stupendous steak pies, great service, and lively friendly locals to chat to. The National Memorial is recommended, and Tamworth, Lichfield and Ashby-de-la-Zouch all have good eateries and within easy reach. All in all...an excellent choice!




Directions : Turn left within 2.75 miles off A513 (Alrewas - Tamworth) onto road (signposted Clifton Campville, Harlaston); in Harlaston at T-junction turn left into road towards Clifton Campville; turn right at Haunton into Syerscote Lane. Site is on the left in about 0.5 mile.
