About the site
My grandfather purchased the Orchard called 'Bicknam' in 1932 and built a bungalow in the centre of the 5-acre plot. It is situated in the green belt and included in the Cotswold area of outstanding natural beauty.
Our 5-acre field including the CL, is Surrounded by Fields (foxes, squirrels, owls, woodpeckers, deer and rabbits are regular visitors) giving the atmosphere of living in the country whilst being only two miles from Bath City Centre. Located only 1/2 a mile away is the district of Weston with all the facilities you would expect from a former village, not forgetting Bath's large Royal United Hospital.
Over the years my wife and I have built up a small business with a reputation for quality products always available at competitive prices. The business is now a farm shop and caravan site (CL). In 1990 we opened the CL, and initially the site was sloping but with the increased popularity due to the introduction of electric points it was decided to completely level the site and in 1996 an access road was laid through the centre with three hard standing pitches to either side of the road.
Both my wife and I have been caravanners for at least 40 years and we like to think we appreciate your requirements, we will do everything we can to make your stay enjoyable.
The CL is situated very close to the Bath "Park & Ride" which can also be reached by foot in under 10 minutes so you don't even need to take your car or camper from the CL site. It is also close to the main Bristol to Bath bus service route and other local buses.
We do hope you decide to visit our site.
