Just returned from a 4 night stay at Packhorse Farm Campsite and can't fault it in anyway! From the original phone call to book the lady was friendly and accommodating! On arrival we were given a map of the site with useful phone numbers! The campsite is set on a farm and is lovely and flat, pitches are large and... More

Stayed for two nights, staff were very friendly and understanding when grandparents had to cancel due to illness. Immediately offered a credit note. Shower block is immaculate and camp is very well tidy. The pitches are spacious and electric hook up worked a treat. Highly recommend.

Lovely pub about a mile and half walk away..this is a nice walk but beware!! Even though the nice steep hill going down towards it is... More

We LOVED this place, loved the fact that they allocate pitches on booking and spread people out so that not all bunched together, it wasn't busy when we went (mon- wed 1-3 sep) and everyone had bags if space, lovely peaceful site with a great toilet/ shower block which was lovely and warm. The only 1 thing that could be... More

A very pleasant campsite, a great find and very friendly. Great for kids (mine sleep in so weren't up that early (and are considerate)) so not guilty ref below. There are lots of children there however and team up in the evenings and have a great time together; so maybe not best if you want a quiet evening.

Two of us stayed at Packhorse Campsite for 2 nights 27/28 August. The owners were very friendly and helpful. Toilet/shower block was spotlessly clean and well maintained. Could have done with a little shelf in the shower cubicle but that is me being picky. The whole site is well maintained and bins were emptied every day. Pitches had hedges breaking... More

I spent 2 nights at the Packhorse with my fiancée, sister and her family. We were in 2 tents and they had conveniently located both pitches together. The use of mature hedges split the site up well and make a relatively busy site seem less populated. The site has excellent facilities, with clean hot showers, good washing facilities for pots...

It was the first time my family have been to packhorse farm camp site. I would fully recommend a visit. The campsite is very well laid out, with a lot of the pitches surrounded by trees so that you are sheltered from the wind and you also have privacy. The toilets were clean and also well laid out with plug... More
