“Good choice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Our Coast to Coast was organised by my friend Steve, and I'm very pleased he chose Robert and Julie's company. The accommodation was converted stables, so fairly basic but just what we needed, with bunks, electric heating and power sockets, all we needed was sleeping bags, towels and wash kit. For those of us in the stables there was one gents with two showers which, although not exactly power showers were more than welcome after a long ride. The kitchen has a fridge stocked with bottles/cans of beer and an honesty box for payment. There is also a microwave and cooker. Breakfast was decent strong coffee, toast with jams followed by a good bacon roll and a chat from Julie offering tips about the best route and pick-up points for the drivers. Our bikes were secured to the vehicle racks with care and our drivers were all very friendly and gave us a guided tour along the way. Our accommodation along the way (The Old Vicarage, Rookhope) was organised by Julie and proved a great choice. On the nights we stayed at Main Farm we were driven to the pub in the evening and Julie was always willing to book tables. In conclusion I would certainly recommend Hassle Free as we both thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality, friendliness and effort made by Julie, Robert and the drivers and wouldn't hesitate to use their services again.

Just returned from a three night stay. Rob and Julie do an amazing job, nothing is too much trouble, they are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable of the local area. This is one the best sites we have stayed on, the facilities are great, everyone catered, the kitchen is good if wet and cold for making a brew or a full meal, the bathrooms are clean and tidy with plenty of hot water. There's a small play area for the kids and lots to explore round and about without having to take the car. The outdoor pool at Lazenby is lovely, a little chilly on entry but soon warms up! We visited the Fetherstone Arms where the staff where very welcoming and the food delicious. Fully recommend this site we will definately be. Thank you Rob and Julie (we loved the "party space" you let us use in your barn!!) cheers til next time The Barnes, Biancardi, Doggat group

The title says it all. 7 of us did the C2C over two days taking advantage of Julie & Roberts Hassle Free option and everything was just great. They were both really helpful and offer a basic but all you need service, even taking us to the pub in the village for after ride recovery!! Anyone thinking of doing the C2C I would not hesitate to recommend them. Karl Jackson

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for two nights camping... It was excellent! We arrived and was made to feel welcome, Robert and Julie we're really helpful. The toilets are spotless, the showers are nice warm and clean and free. There are phone charging facilities for people who don't have electric. The farm site is lovely and the views are so relaxing. Would recommend this Campsite to anybody any age.

Myself and 3 friends stayed over in a pod for a night and I can honestly say it was fantastic, Robert and Julie made us feel very welcome and couldn't do enough to help, can't wait to book again, a truly amazing place to stay, I would recommend hiring and log burner, unlimited wood and is perfect whilst relaxing in the evening, thanks so much we had a truly fantastic time can't wait to come back.

Massive thanks to Robert and Julie Pickthall who made our C2C really straightforward. They helped so much with unfailing cheerfulness and made everything but the cycling itself go simply. I really can't thank them enough for their help.

One of the best campsites we have stayed at. The facilities are excellent always clean and the kitchen with kettle, fridge & microwave for campers is an excellent addition, showers & toilets are really plentiful, some brilliant homely touches flowers, towels and soap in all the loo's.
The camping area is really well laid out plenty of space between tents.
The new pod's are a great addition if you only want a quick night or two away. the bunkrooms are ideal for family members who don't camp but want to join you or for C2C stop overs. The location is simply perfect great views, great walks in the local area.
The site owners Robert & Julie go out of their way to friendly and helpful but without been intrusive, we were a party of 8 and Robert gave us a lift to the local pub where we had an excellent meal. We hired a fire basket and were given plentiful wood and shown where to get more wood if we needed it.
A awful lot of thought has gone in to this site which has resulted in a perfect site that we will visit again and fully recommend to anyone without reservation.
