FROM HAPPY CAMPER JULES Came back early as weather was due to pour down but stayed for 2 nights and had a FANTASTIC time. A big group of us went with 6 kids. Quite basic site... but excellent.... 2 ladies and 2 gents loos, sink in each and outside water and washing sink (cold water only)... loads of space, excellent trees to climb and abundance of wood to burn and space to burn it..... what more could you want,,,,,,,, serious chill out, lots of time spent building fires and sitting mesmerised by fires!!. All in all a fantastic site. Excellent views. Honesty pot by farmhouse door for money £2.50 each per night (under 5's free). Definately recommend for fantastic back to nature no frills camping!! No play areas or shops.....kids had a ball climbing trees, making rope swings and collecting wood.

We had a lovely couple of nights here. We were on a very sunny august bank holiday, and there was plenty of space. We were probably fairly noisy, but nobody complained and everyone was friendly. Never saw anyone from the farm at all - just left money on top of a log for bags of firewood, then popped a fiver each in the honesty box as we left. Gorgeous views, peaceful site, and basic but functional toilet blocks (Take your own paper!). No showers. All in all, an absolutely lovely, if basic, site. Will definitely return.

We were there on the 12/7/08 on a girlie weekend and it was not just no thrills, there were shower blocks and 3 extra loos that looked new and they were clean. It was so peaceful and the views were to die for. Very hard to fined though, needs a sign post at the bottom of the 2 mile road its at the end of.

Went again this year - last weekend in august. Site was lively but very friendly. They have new toilet and shower block now - toilet paper aplenty. Showers take 20p pieces. Had a great time again - it's the first time we've repeated a camp site for our yearly trips, so there must be something special about the place. Spoke to the farmer too, very nice bloke.

I have just come back from a gorgeous weekend spent camping at the Beeches Farm campsite - it's great value for money - £3.50/person/night - you can have a small fire and noise is fine within reason. The facilities are really good. I will definitely be heading back soon, as it was the perfect place to hang out with your friends under the stars! JoJo x

Just back from a weekend at Beeches farm - based on my last two visits it is now clear that the very essence that made this such a great site is just about gone. When it was just a field and a very small loo block, it offered the sort of basic site I think many people were looking for. Simple pleasures around a good camp fire. Now it is host to large groups and I even saw a notice for a caravan rally. Even with both fields in use the site was really busy on both occasions and the new loo/shower block was not up to the job. I can't blame the farmer - it is so hard to make a living farming these days but it's a shame to see this great place sell out. To be fair the last trip was the Bank Holiday weekend but both times it was really busy and unfortunately not with the quiet - think-of-others sort of campers you want to pitch next to. I had to ask someone to turn off their music at 3am! It was good while it lasted as can be seen from earlier logs but don't expect quiet seclusion unless you go in the middle of the week and the forecast is rain :-(

Had a brilliant time there over the weekend, kids loved it, nothin better than a real camp fire. forest is rite by the camp site so great for a walk, facilities have improved as there is now showers as well as toilets, nothin special but they do the job. cant wait to go again. prices have gone up £1 each tho but still worth the money

Lexington is right. Didn't help having in the Guardian. I'm taking my mandolin and drums next time in an ironic kinda way. Humph!

I agree with Lexington. It didn't help having it in the Guardian either. Still, there are plenty of other hidden sites. I'm just not telling anybody where they are.

Have just arrived home after a brilliant weekend at Beeches Campsite, Had a lovely open fire last night using wood that is for sale on the site for only £2 per bag! Costs just £3.50 per person/ per night and the toilet block is now superb. Had a lovely weekend and we will definitely be returning soon!
