Here are a few reviews from Motorhome Fun Members
A gem of a site if you like peace and quiet and nice walks. The camping field is very large and open yet surrounded by woods that make for good dog walking. The owners have newly created, easy to use, water and waste points. If you are lucky their hens may visit and there may be eggs and honey for sale. On our visit, deer, rabbits and pheasant were also seen. Convenient stop over near the M4 Bath junction but also nice for longer stays due to it’s position on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment and the Cotswold Way.
I've been meaning to write a full review since Mumma Clanger and I stayed at Woodsidefield over the bank holiday weekend (sorry Quackers!), and I can say that we couldn't have picked a better place to stay for our maiden voyage in "Beryl" the Bus. I think we were their first paying customers after they officially opened.
We arrived just after lunch (quite literally, which we had just eaten in the picturesque nearby town of Chipping Sodbury) on the Saturday, and were met at the gate by Mrs Quackers who showed us where the facilities were and we were soon pitched up in the beautifully manicured field. (Apparently it's not normal for pitches to be so well mowed). Fresh water tap (with hoselock), grey water (both gravel dump and separate bucket) and chemical toilet disposal points all provided and suitably sign posted, and all were immaculate.
The field itself is enormous - much bigger than the 5 motorhome limit would indicate - and surrounded by trees, with a woodland to one side. We were also greeted by a flock (brood? gaggle?) of chickens that came to see what was going on. There are also geese and ducks (that we heard) and deer if you are luck enough to see them. We did hear buzzards screeching during the day and at least 2 different owl species at night. Apart from that, the place was tranquil and restful.
We had a meal and a drink in the Cross Hands pub (Greene King), which was a pleasant stroll back down the lane. The food was reasonably priced for pub grub and remarkable good for the price.
We managed a day trip out on the Sunday, staying until the Monday. Due to a cancellation, like Monty don, we had the place to ourselves. We came home relaxed, with a bag full of sloes picked from the hedgerow, ready for making sloe gin.
Im currently on Woodsidefield site in sunny Sodbury and its very nice indeed. Have it all to myself tonight. If you like a nice quiet site in a lovely location immaculately presented then you cant go wrong £12 Funster deal what's not to like. Off for a walk down the pub soon for a few Guinesses
Like I said highly recommended.
Super new site CL style. Fresh eggs, honey, and a friendly welcome. A good base for Bath and Bristol. Good M4 stopover near M4 J 18.
Will be back.
Visited on the way down to the West Country, literally couple of miles from the M4. This site is Stunning, absolutely beautiful. There are a couple of pubs within walking distance and also a bus stop just down the road. Best of all, freshly laid eggs and honey available. If you are looking for a CL site with basic facilities, for just adults in a very peaceful setting, then this is the one. We will definately be calling in again when next heading down to the West Country.
This is a huge, well maintained field ran by 'Funsters', Helen and Brian (Quackers) Facilities include:- Drinking water, grey waste sink, Elsan point, 'drive over 'grey waste and extensive recycling. Hand sanitation is provided at relevant points. The field is secured by 2 padlocked gates.
They have fire pits for hire, free range eggs (you have to try a goose egg !) and home grown honey is also for sale. The Cross Hands Hotel is an easy 5 minute walk. Fantastic location to relax, cycle or walk. Some of the paths being The Cotswold Way, Monarch's Way, Jubilee and Frome Valley Way.
Helen and Brian were very welcoming and accommodating hosts. We highly recommend this new CL and are sure it will become very popular.
Beautifully-kept CL with wonderful hosts. We stayed at Woodside Field in early April while we did our 10 days isolation on return from Italy. (NB We are fulltimers so this was allowed.) Brian and Helen are wonderful hosts - friendly and helpful - and their CL is beautifully kept. As well as the large field for camping, there is a woodland area to walk in, currently with emerging bluebells. A bonus is fresh eggs from the resident hens and ducks. Once we had completed our isolation, we did the 2.5 mile circular walk to the nearby hill fort which was very enjoyable. So we can wholeheartedly recommend Woodside Field Fun CL to anyone looking for a place to stay in the Bristol/Bath area.
We are currently here. A truly outstanding site of an ENORMOUS field with deer roaming around and so far away not to be concerned. It is within a very short distance of what appears to be a fantastic cycling network of paths which can take you out to the Severn Estuary or along the Avon. 2 pubs within crawling distance but only one open because of CV. The Elsan point was an absolute pleasure to use. Never seen anything that clean and new. Hosts are just really really lovely people. Dead simple to book up on the internet, but you do need to read the instructions on how to enter and just spend 2 minutes looking at google images to understand what you need to do. No doubt a video entry will be made in due course. Chicken, Duck and Goose eggs available if they are laying. Firepit came out and Gin flowed. Bath just down the road easily reachable on back roads by e bike or main road on scooter. Several day out sort of places to go to. Arboretums, woods, Historic villages, Bath, Bristol, Estuary and all within an ebike cycle. Numerous lovely bistro type cafes at these places and Chipping Sodbury just down the road. The place is secure and offers free wifi We now have a new "Go to" place for my days off and we are an hour and half away.
