Hatton Country World CL

Post by Paulmold on Sat Jul 23, 2016 9:49 am

Site has been updated since its entry in the CC site book and  now has 5 hardstandings all with electric, price now £13. 95 per night. You book in at the shop/admission kiosk. No-one tells you where anything is. We came across the Elsan point and found fresh water tap alongside, this needs labelling as 'drinking water only'. The toilets are inside the shopping village and there is no motorhome disposal point as listed in CC book. The CC book also shows public transport nearby but no-one at the site could tell us where. This is primarily a visitor attraction with the shopping village for adults and park/farm for children (10 coach loads of school children arrive every day in summer). If taking children be aware that the park attractions cost £9. 95 per child AND £8. 95 per accompanying adult PER DAY which is absurd seeing as adults can't actually do anything in the park apart from look at the animals. Without children this site is ideally situated for local attractions of Warwick/Stratford etc. Website gives the impression that the Hatton Arms pub is on site but it is about a mile walk away. Some staff totally unaware that there is even a campsite there at all. Food in the cafe was sold out by 1pm. Gates are supposed to be locked after 8pm so you need to leave £50 deposit for fob to leave or enter site after 8pm. We walked to the pub, returning at 9.30pm to find gates still open, no sign of anyone in Country World, so you feel very isolated and very insecure at night. Overall a disappointing visit. Could be such a good site if only someone could be bothered to sort it.

Is that the place with a long rise of locks? I attended an SBMCC rally there many years ago. It doesn't sound like it has changed much in all that time.

Yes the locks are by the pub.

As a local I have long been of the view that Hatton Country World is hyped up and overpriced, with slick PR being its main achievement. The surrounding area is great though, so I can understand it being a convenient stop-off.
