AvailablePitch Rally at New House Farm, Atherstone

Two of our group were celebrating "significant" birthdays and wanted to do something special. But what should we do? Various suggestions were bandied around, until the clever one amongst us suggested our own private rally weekend at a small campsite, where we would book out the whole site. Brilliant idea!! Now, where should we go?

We had a pow-wow and drew up the criteria: It couldn't be too far away so as to be accessible for everyone to travel to. The essentials were: it must have some hook-ups, it must have basic loo and shower facilities, it must have firm enough ground to support motorhomes in the event of wet weather and be remote enough so that we didn't disturb neighbours in the extremely unlikely event that we perhaps made a slight noise. Oh - and dogs must be welcome.

A quick search using AvailablePitch’s rally field search brought up many options, and after much lively discussion, the choice was made: New House Farm, Hurley, Atherstone, Warwickshire. A check of the availability calendar for the weekend we wanted showed us there was availability, we just needed to check whether the whole site was free.

A quick call to David at New House Farm confirmed he could fit us in, and we booked the site for the exclusive use of our group from Friday midday to Sunday afternoon at a really excellent price when divided between us. As a Camping and Caravanning Club Certificated Site, we were required to be members, but that wasn't a problem, as we were all long standing members. All we needed now was good weather........
