We stayed on this site for two nights at the end of a tour and prior to returning our caravan to our storage site near Peterborough. 

 

Newbold Grounds – Panorama

Newbold Grounds CL site is situated about ten miles west of Northampton and enjoys an elevated position far enough from the A425 main road not to be disturbed by road noise, but it is a large working farm so some noise may go with the territory.

The private access road between the main road and the site is in good condition, and there is an electrically operated, key pad protected security gate about halfway along it.

The pitching area is a simple rectangle of well maintained grass backing on to a wood and facing north, so sunny in afternoon, but shaded during the mornings. The layout provides a fine view across open arable field as far as a distant horizon. 

Newbold Grounds – From the Site Entrance

The ground was firm when we visited but as the underlaying soil is clay it could possible be a problem following a prolonged wet weather. We understand that the site is closed during the winter, presumably for this reason.

Newbold Grounds – A Walk in the Woods

There are two double sockets on posts providing 16 amp electric hook-up points. The fifth pitch, which is furthest from the entrance, and the one we occupied was served by an extension lead from a third double socket located by the sanitary station. 

The sanitary disposal point, rubbish bins and fresh water tap are grouped in the wood, and whilst dry underfoot when we visited looked as though the area does get somewhat muddy in wet weather.

We found the mobile phone network provided a strong 4g signal, which proved to be about twice as fast as our home Vodafone network.

Currently the site owner, Tom and Rachel Jeffries are trialling an on-line booking system, which we found very efficient and simple to use.
