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.

Great pitches, some partitioned off, nice clean shower block and washing up areas and a nice lit pathway through the site. Owners very friendly right from the off , cannot recommend this site enough. 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

Found this place on trip advisor. It was £18 a night for a two man tent which might be par for the course, I don't know. You can't fault it. Friendly reception, really well kept grounds, nice and quite, nice outlook and immaculate shower / toilet block. Loads of piping hot water and totally spic and span. Would go again.

Pack Horse Farm was a lovely site, I liked the hedged areas as it was very windy the weekend we stayed so the hedges and trees saved us from being blown away. The only thing I will add is that in the showers it would be advantage to have a stool or shelve to put your toilet bag on, as... More

We've tried most sites round this area, some good some bad. We booked in for a Friday night until Sunday morning stay at Packhorse as we'd never been before. What a lovely site!! Really friendly and very cleverly layed out. The 50 pitches are number marked and carved out into small cul-de-sacs through a lightly wooded area. You maintain a... More
