This is an excellent Caravan Club Site ideally located for exploring the Roaches and Tittesworth Reservoir. Pitches at the bottom of the site, near the road, can be noisy, however if you go to the top of the site there is less road noise. Pitches are spacious. Toilets/showers always clean. Dog walk on site. A short walk from the site is The Three Horseshoes Inn who serve excellent food - worth a visit!
