A simple and back to basics campsite, with the pricing reflecting this.  EHU was well spaced out and readily available.  The communal 'BYO beer tent' was a lovely place to catch up with the other residents and also a warm place to sit.  Our reason for stay was the close proximity to Stoney Cove for Scuba diving, and for this it was perfect, only a 2 min drive away. 3 pubs all serving food were only a 10min walk from the front gate.  With the addition of a shower block (delayed due to fishing works) this would be a fantastic site which we would use again.

Just spent a couple of days at Fortway Farm, it was very good. Enjoyed the fishing, some nice carp in the horseshoe lake. Steve was very helpful and couldn't do enough for you. Will definitely be back.

We have just returned from our May bank Holiday break, Excellent Friendly site with informal grass pitches and electric hook up if required. Fishing is available for a small charge. Onsite toilets and elsan point. There is also a horse riding club held alternate Sundays for people interested in equestrian etc. A large Car boot within walking distance every Sunday, also several Good pubs for eating out within a short drive. One of our Favourite Sites that's only going to improve and all for a very reasonable site fee. Thanks Steve See you in a couple of weeks When I am bringing my fishing gear.

Brilliant camp site, very friendly owners and very good value for money. Welcoming and picturesque. Also if your into your fishing the fishery is very quite and secluded and would make for a great day out. 10 out of 10!

First time we have used this family site, what can I say it's beautiful there, we only stayed for one night just to try out the new tent. The owners and site manager are so nice, friendly and helpful. The toilets are nice and clean and also the fishing lake was beautiful too and my husband said that the fish are very well looked after and for only £5.00 for a day ticket it's great. We are definitely coming back again soon. 10 out of 10

Well where shall I start ??? If you like fishing then it's here if you like horses that's here too fortnightly . If you like a nice setting that's here 24/7 it's a warm an friendly site that's very well priced and to be honest I would rather keep quiet about it because it's that good but good things really should be shared so there you are I've said it now . A little gem in a fab setting , great people a real joy thank you as all

What a fantastic site. Great value and super staff on site. Everyone very welcoming and no-one moaning or complaining. Very laid back atmosphere but everyone was so friendly. We will be back soon.

Fantastic site!! Cannot recommend enough. Friendly welcoming people on site, fantastic group of people!  We struggle with our new tent and instead of just watching on people got stuck in and helped! Will definitely return! Thanks for a lovely stay

Lovely. This is a very basic site (improvements being made) but wow we loved it. Steve and Dawn and Linda could not have made us more welcome.  The site is on a slope for some pitches so if like us you want something slightly flatter - ask!! We loved the idea of the party tent where everyone brings a chair and their chosen tipple and enjoy a chat. You don’t have to join in but it is great to talk to others.  Another remarkable thing is that a lot of the visitors are from a short distance away and just visit to get away and it creates a family vibe.  We will be back - thank you

Just returned from spending a few days at this location and felt it was worthy of a review. From the moment of arrival we were greeted as friends and not jumped upon just left to our own to set up and have a cup of tea etc. The toilets were very clean and the site has a friendly atmosphere with everyone stopping for a chat. It does get busy at weekends especially when there is a horse event on but its doesn't cause any problems. The fishing is good and the lady owner who walks her dog is very helpful. Certainly will return,quiet site pub up the road no hassle job done as far as we are concerned.

Hi Steve,

We’re home from our brief stay with you and we’ll definitely be back. We love a site that is more relaxed and doesn’t have lists and lists of rules. The boys got some space for a mini kick about and we managed a walk to Stoney cove in the sunshine which was lovely. The dog enjoyed the site too! You’ve got a great little site there which I think is really good value for money. Only being local, coventry, we appreciated the option to arrive late Friday evening. Thanks for your flexibility there. I believe your site is fairly new, and being updated as time progresses. If we could wave a magic wand we’d add some more rubbish bins, perhaps a washing up sink and shower facilities. Though none of these are essential. I bet the place is beautiful and busy in the dry summer months! We’ll be back with you, probably later in March I think. Loved the peace and space and relaxed attitude. Thanks. I paid the lady with the rather large dog, asked her to keep the full £20, but appreciate your offer to transfer the deposit we paid back in February over but it didn’t seem fair/ reasonable to use it. Thanks again and see you soon.

Hello Sasha Thankyou for your kind review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the site. I'm sorry that we never got to meet this weekend as we are not there until next weekend, but I'm sure we will meet if you decide to come again. As you said we could do with showers etc. Its funny you should say that, we start them next week as we already have the footings in for the new showers etc next to the existing toilets. Regarding the bins we usually have quite a few for the rubbish, but as it's early in the season we only put a few out but we intend to have a proper waste bin ready for Easter. Once again thank you for visiting us and we do hope you will come again. 

Regards Steve

Ps the lady with the big dog (whose name is Toby) is the owners mother and she's very nice.        .......................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Just got back from a weekend at Fortway Farm. Site is small and friendly. Site managers and regular campers very welcoming. Will definitely be making this a regular camping spot. Short walk to Stoney Cove and Croft car boot. The shower block is currently working progress.

Thanks Steve and dawn. Will be seeing you again soon 😁

Stayed for 3 nights start of June 2019 Site just off busy "B" road but easy access both in and out .Really good and friendly site manager Steve with excellent local knowledge . Found other campers really "at home " on site and had a good few chats with them .Toilets kept very clean and shower block is progressing well with its construction... would definitely make a Bee Line to stay here again if around this part of the country in the future.

Spent a lovely 3 nights at Fortway Farm. The site is a little gem with spotless toilet facilities and the shower block almost complete which will be fantastic when finished. Well what can I say about the site manager ..... Steve is such a welcoming and friendly guy making us feel Part of the site as soon as we arrived. Steve helped us with our hook up and positioning the van onto the ramps. The site has a great community spirit and we were sad to leave. Linda was a real star helping us with transport to the cricket ground...thanks again Linda. We will definitely be back. Keep up the great work guys.
