Tranquil and off-road site. Excellent campsite: plenty of hardstanding pitches; brilliant facilities including 'fast' and powerful showers which are very clean. Squirrels and birds aplenty to admire when picnicing. Easy walk (20 mins) through farmland and woods into town. Buses at end of lane request stop.
