Stubcroft Farm

Postby nobbyfox » 11 May 2013, 12:47

Stayed at Stubcroft Farm over the B/H weekend. Expensive at £42 per night!
Nice campsite but only 6 showers and not the best i have seen. A few eco friendly toilets (you c**p in a hole) Ok until you disturb the water :shock:
Cycle routes to Bracklesham and Witterings.

What was the £42 getting you? A delivered breakfast? Use of the owner's Wife/daughter/sisters :wink:

Seriously, I'm not sure how a site can justify a price like that no matter what the season is. Was it for 8 people, a dog, awning, electric?

As long as you enjoyed I suppose that is all that matters

I find a lot of these Eco sites cost a fair bit of money, cheaper to go to a site with swimming pool, club house ect.
I don't get that myself? I still go to the Eco ones, but only for one night

Heh heh, I think my preferred 'eco' site is a tap in a field costing no more than £5 a night. I never pre-book if I go touring and keep an eye out for farmers signs put out in the holiday season, can often be much nicer and cheaper than commercial sites.

I know what you mean, one of the nicest stops we've had as a family was when we were trying to find a 'wild' spot and was drawing blanks everywhere. Ended up on some narrow single track dead end road that ended with a farm (this was in wales somewhere) Had a hand written sign on a fence saying camping. Fiver for the night, the farmers two kids came out, the daughter took my girl off out on a pony and his son took mine out for a race around on a tractor! Amazing seeing two ten year old controlling some agricultural machinery :lol:

Yes you are all correct - it was pricey. It was booked by friends of ours. I certainly would not of paid that much. :oops:
No Louey, I did not include a bunk up with the farmers wife/daughter. Sadly
The toilets reminded me of my Reading/ Castle Donington days.

I remember doing a Diesel/veg oil conversion course at a place near Milton Keynes. They had eco everything, solar heating, solar power, compost toilets where the flush was a bucket of sawdust. I think the concept is amazing but some of the stuff is not my cup of tea.

They even weaved their own yoghurt :wink:

Get yourself booked to join a club camp/meet if you haven't already too :ok

I think sometimes people take the eco thing too far. How can you 'flush' with sawdust. :shock:
We/I would like to attend a club meet. Defo Busfest!!

The toilet didn't use water, you blocked up the toilet after six months and let the cr@p breakdown for six months before shovelling out from an access hatch. The place had a second toilet next to the first - though only one could be used at any time, so your best buddy wouldn't be sitting next to you reading a camper mag whilst you do the same :lol:

If you don't have plans for Whitsun Bank Holiday then I can recommend the Cornish Bashtie :ok

Are you taking the van? When we went there, we were able to use the carpark along with approx 100 other motorhomes and only paid for one day/nights parking and we stopped for 2/3 nights. There were free showers too.
