Lovely camp site, all pitches surrounded by lush greenery. Very quiet when we were there, which we like. We were lucky enough to hear an owl very close by. No traffic noise whatsoever. Two toilets, one shower with sink, one washing up area. There's an hourly bus service within a very short walking distance outside the site, to Gloucester and Tewkesbury. Make sure to read all the written information on the hut. If you're leaving the site in the evening, you need a code to get back in through the electronic gates. Luckily the owner arrived when we were there, we had missed a digit off! As the weather forecast was dire, we asked if we could pay nightly, they agreed, which we were extremely grateful for. We stayed most of the following day before deciding to leave late afternoon, by this time John, the lovely man who runs the site, had returned from his holiday, and didn't charge us anything. Such a kind gesture, we were prepared to pay for the night. If I had to nit pick it would be ...

THE LOCKDOWN & GETTING GOING AGAIN.
WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IN MAY 2019, THAT A YEAR LATER THE WORLD WOULD  BE KNOCKED DOWN BY A VIRUS. BUT IT HAS. EVERYONE INCLUDING US ARE TIRED OF THE RESTRICTIONS ON TRAVEL AND HOLIDAYS.  BUT WE KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE REASONING FOR IT.

SOON, IT WILL ALL BE IN THE PAST. July has been suggested on television and on the Internet. SO IT LOOKS AS IF ALL OF OUR CARAVAN AND CAMPER FRIENDS WILL BE RELEASED FROM THEIR CAGES IN JULY AND BE ALLOWED TO TRAVEL AND STAY WITH US AGAIN.   

THIS NEXT BIT IS A PROPOSAL TO ENSURE SAFETY FOR EVERYONE. 

HOWEVER, WITH VERY LIMITED TOILET AND SHOWER FACILITIES HERE, Eg 1 LADIES AND 1 GENTS LOO AND OF COURSE A SINGLE SHOWER, I AM THINKING THAT VISITORS WITH THEIR OWN FACILITIES WOULD PREFER TO USE THEIR OWN. IT'LL BE REASSURING FOR BOTH YOU AND US..
SO FOR THE TIME BEING VISITORS WITH CARAVANS AND MOTORHOMES WITH INBUILT SHOWER AND TOILETS AND INDEED TENTS WITH PORTALOOS WILL BE BEST SUITED TO STAY HERE. 

IF PEOPLE READING THIS THINK MY PROPOSAL IS REASONABLE AND WORKABLE, THEN LET'S DO IT. 

People who are concidered HIGH RISK, pregnant, ill health etc, we ask those people to concider all risks. 

We would love to have you stay with us, but if those lovely people decline, then it's something we will have to accept.  As time progresses we would hope to cater for everyone again. 
THE SOONER WE ALL GET THE NOD FROM THE POWERS THAT BE, THE BETTER. 
AFTER ALL "WE ARE BRITISH & WE WILL CARRY ON" WHEN THE GREAT BRITISH PUBLIC ARE ALLOWED TO TRAVEL AGAIN AND ENJOY THE OUTDOOR LIFE.
 
GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE OUT THERE, WHETHER YOU BE IN BRITAIN OR OVER THE CHANNEL. 
WHETHER YOU ARE REGULAR VISITORS TO US, OR WERE GOING TO BE FIRST TIMERS. 
GOOD LUCK AND WE WISH YOU ALL WELL.

A bit of history.
About us. Our previous life.. Until we came to Court Farm with our American motorhome, we had owned two boats. One was a 72 foot long canal trading working boat, called "StokieNo1", from which we sold diesel and coal, "Stokie" had not only been a business, but our home too, and the other boat a 37 foot long Broom cruiser with two big Perkins Diesel engines, she was called "Islander Of Saltford", they were our life interest until the EU made trading and making money impossible & forced us out of business.

We sold both boats and bought a motorhome.

In 2009 my partner and I visited Court Farm as motor homers for a week. 
We weren't impressed.. 
The field was shared with horses. Horses ate everything. Nothing by way of the existing  site  made us feel comfortable.  However though the  owners though were warm and helpful.
Nowadays  we like to feel as if we are friends. 

A little bit later, we asked the owners if they would allow us to make some dramatic changes to the field and attempt to turn it into a decent Camping site.

We needed to give the whole field a makeover.  The  horses departed. We  asked for 500 saplings, a few sacks of grass seed and WE PROMISED FREE LABOUR.
WE STILL DO EVERYTHING FOR NO FINANCIAL REWARD.

Eventually, we got what we needed. 

A few years later,, the field resembles nothing of it's previous life. It's green grass is split into tree separated areas, a number of electrical outlets and refurbished facility block. 

BOTH BRIONI & I ARE STILL UNPAID Volunteers, we don't want to be paid .  Money isn't everything 

I could tell you much much more, but I won't, because it would sound all about us...
The most important thing we would like to say is this. And that is that without (OWNERS) Mr and Mrs Gormans agreement we would never have been given the opportunity to express ourselves in the way I  have. 

We would like to share what has become " Our Garden" with you.

Please ensure you arrive with UK Pounds and not Euros on ARRIVAL. 

PETS ..A maximum of Two very well behaved small to medium size dogs are welcome per unit .  Please bear in mind that we no longer  have a dedicated dog walk area on site. All dogs must be kept on leads and never left in a caravan , motor home or tent in your absence. 
Recently a dog was left outside on a chain all day while the owners were out. It had never happened before, but now it has, we must include that too as a no. 

TEDDY BEARS IN TREES....WHY ?
Quite simply, right at the beginning of our tree planting, a husband and wife were here with two dogs. When they left to drive home, they went away leaving two dog toys. A fabric duck and a twisted colored rope.  
Rather than me bin them, i tied them to a 2 foot high young tree just for fun.  
I wondered whether they would get higher as the tree grew...Well they did. Right now the duck is about 6 feet up and the rope is more than 8 feet up. 
Often, people will ask what are they all about.  
SO BRING A TED, AND ONE DAY, WHEN YOU RETURN YOU'LL REMEMBER PUTTING IT IN THE TREE.
So there you have it. Mystery solved.
