This is a pleasant well drained level site with well spaced grass pitches. Toilet block is clean but could maybe do with up dating a little. However it is still acceptable. The park is well laid out and the position is such that it is within the village of Folkingham and shops and pub are all within easy walking distance Pitches are grass it is well cared for and there are some nice walks from the site. There isnt a playground for children but plenty of grass and open space There is a separate field for tents The owners are friendly and you leave with the feeling of wanting to come back again

Arrived on a very windy day and found there is a huge Leylandii hedge which really helped to shelter our not very aerodynamic tent. Extra guylines fitted, it didn't look as if it was going to blow away! And it didn't.

The site was very quiet in both senses of the word, apart from the wind and the cooing of pigeons in the hedge, there was little other noise. The field was fairly full of caravans but only a few seemed to have people in. It is very rural, with fields of spotted sheep all around.

The field is very well maintained and the facilities are excellent, huge shower cubicles, lots of hot water. Plenty of washing-up space, one indoors.

The owners were friendly and helpful, and there's an information room and toilets near the house as well as info in the washrooms.

The village is very historic, look out for the houses with moustaches, the workhouse and the house of correction! The church has some great gargoyles. There is a shop in the village which is useful but expensive.

Belton House and Woolsthorpe Manor are not far away and well worth a visit, as is Stamford. The Art Centre is recommended for coffee or lunch.

We're planning to come back with our bicycles, it looks like super cycling country round here.

On arrival at the site, we were greeted warmly and told to select a pitch which suited us. We chose to pitch on the front field which is a little farther from the toilets but we had lots of room for our four year old to run around and was very peaceful late on in the evening when she was asleep.

The site is lovely. The facilities are spotlessly clean and never had to wait for the showers or toilets.

The village is only a couple of minutes walk and has a pub with a beer garden which was lovely as when we were there the weather was very hot!

We visited Stamford and Rutland water and had a lovely time.

We did try the fish and chip shop which had leaflets up in the information center on site I would not recommend! The food was awful.

We will definitely visit this site again!

Grabbed just a night away here this weekend. Quiet and peaceful site - yes, apart from the pigeons! But that wasn't a problem. Easy walking distance into the village, where we used the shop / deli for breakfast provisions (there's also a small farm shop on West Road, about half a mile or so out of Folkingham).

Had hoped to eat in the pub, but weren't impressed with the rather limited menu choice or the welcome, so drove instead - at the site owner's recommendation - to the Fortescue Arms in Billingsborough, 10 minutes away. Good meal here and well kept ales. If the Folkingham pub was of this quality, we'd be back there like a shot!

Facilities at the site a bit dated, but adequate and the showers were hot and powerful. No shop (I suppose because they are so close to the village). And no freezer facilities, which was a bit of a nuisance for us. All in all though, a good, clean, quiet site. We'd visit again as a stopover rather than a destination.

Had a very nice 4 night stay here. Showers and toilets were clean but only 2 of each.

Short walk to the village shop which was well stocked. The chocolate shop is well worth a visit.

Only problem we had was being woken up at 4am every day with the racket from the pigeons nesting in the conifer trees where we were pitched. Possibly reducing the height of these trees would deter so many pigeons using them. Sleep after 4am is impossible if you are using a tent.

This is a good site to use as a base to visit the surrounding area. Plenty of leaflets available on site.

Beautiful setting, both the site itself and the nearby village. Owners friendly, showers and toilets spotless but only 2 showers each for gents and ladies, though this was never a problem for us. Also 2 sinks for washing up.

Village shop very good for basics you've forgotten (we got porridge, bread and golden syrup!) plus a nice selection of local cheeses and some other delicatessen type stuff.

We took 3 children aged between 3 and 9 and were largely happy to let them run around unsupervised as there was little traffic through the site and no obvious hazards. We also found the little pagoda/bandstand in the orchard an ideal place for camping stoves and disposable BBQs. Note that cash is needed for payment.

Very much enjoyed our visit.
