Easy enough for everyone arriving from the country. Some very nice cycling roads too around the area. Thanks for letting us stay and hopefully we'll be back!

We stayed here for a race weekend at Silverstone, and had a wonderful time enjoying a little peace and quiet away from the track. Andy is a great host, and the apartment is nicely furnished and is appointed with all the amenities you would expect including a brand-new kitchen and television set-up. Bedding was firm (which we like), and there were plenty of blankets available. The local pub is a pleasant 5-minute walk away, and the food was quite good. All in all, a wonderful stay that we would happily repeat anytime we happen to be in the area.

                                                                                        I was a bit tentative about staying in a static caravan but my fears were quickly put to one side upon arrival. It' easy to miss the turn off from the main road but, once there, there is a lovely area for the kids to play in, pigs to see and the owners, Angie and Craig, are wonderful. The caravan itself could do with some ventilation throughout as, on a daily basis, we found ourselves having to wipe down the windows with towels as they were dripping in condensation - as were the curtains. The double bed appears to consist of two mattresses stacked on top of each other which makes for a very soft (too soft) bed that would slump in the middle. Aside from those two points it was cosy, practical and had everything we needed for our 5 day stay. We were there in September so sitting out on the decking was not an option but I've no doubt that it would be a very pleasant thing to do in the summer months overlooking the meadow watching the pigs rummage in the grass. The location is very handy indeed although it's between a main road and a train track. This may seem like a problem but within a few hours we had become "immune" to the outside noise. Without a doubt we will return.
