Very friendly staff on arrival. We arrived early and were given a map and explained where to go for the pitch. We were given our passes to the entertainment. The site has everything, swimming pool, park, bar, restaurant etc. Very clean and modern toilet and shower blocks, and a family one too. Good size pitches. Very quiet at night and friendly people on site.

Will definitely go back. My daughter loved the entertainment and the arcades on site.

My first visit. Very presentable, with ample well thought out, beautiful landscaped park. Only downer was the poor ventilation in the toilet/shower block. While the block has some good quality fittings, the building has no natural daylight & no windows. Omitting these in the block construction, was a big mistake. They really ought to think about fitting high windows for better light & air quality, so for me not a serious build alteration.

But as for the rest of the campsite, first class everything is sorted & convenient. Will be returning again, had a very good break.

Beautiful entrance past hotel with waterfalls and the site in general is set out with little ponds and lakes dotted around. The pitches are a good size and there is a couple of parks and a recreational field for the kids. The shower blocks are a good size and the best showers I have had in a campsite, hot and powerful. My only criticism is the swimming pool, for the size of site it is way too small and the land is there to extend. It needs updating as gets too full. The club was similar to other sites. Good holiday.

Just had a week at Southview in a motorhome 2 adults £95 on hardstanding, the super pitches seem to hold more water than the hardstanding side. The facilities were very good, the pool a nice temp. 6a bus came close by to pick up or the no6 went on main roadd by the park. The toilet block was very clean with the exception of a strong smell from gents urinal. Pot washing in launderette in back room with piped radio. No shortage of hot water, I had a bath on 4 days and wife liked her showers. Although many tourers on site, no waiting for toilets etc. Club was usual run of mill and beer was £3. 30 a pint of lager. I would say it has high ratings for a park resort site and some nice extras, bargains to be had out of main season, and we were very pleased plenty to do in skegness

We tend to avoid these sites when children are off school as they can get a bit hectic in the bar areas as most park resorts / haven sites do, and we have been to a lot of them. Hope this helps

My wife and I agree with everything the previous reviewer put, the entrance to the site and the drive down the tree lined avenues are lovely. The touring pitches are as said hard standing with adequate space for anything other than the biggest of vans etc, all the touring pitches are are in small cul-de-sacs with pitch spaces for 16 vehicles. We had a standard pitch but full service pitches are available.

There are two bars/venues should you wish one for all the entertainment and a separate bar/restaraunt with food served all day.

There is a regular hourly bus service that drives through the site to take you into Skegness this is operated by Stagecoach so is not a complimentary service but at £3. 30 return per adult or £10. 00 for a family ticket is not too bad.

The biggest downside was the shower and water facilities, men's showeroom only had had four showers, I tried three and all were equally poor in water pressure and temperature, despite being fairly recently modernised they didn't look as though they were cleaned more than once a day.

If Park Resorts were to just invest a little more in the facilities it would certainly be a park to remember for all the right reasons.

As others have said here - the site looks impressive on first arrival. Easy access and nice one-way system down the main road means no reversing! However, there is no pull-in for tourers so you can get into reception. You have to estimate where to pull up without annoying other drivers.

Excellent location for visiting Skegness or the fantastic Gibraltar Point - peace and tranquility in bucket loads. Site is near to Morrisons, Tesco and umpteen fast food outlets.

Pitches are large. We had a mains hardstanding and there was enough room for the van, the awning, the car, another car and a bit of grass to sit on/bbq if you felt the urge.

The power for our pitch was through a hedge. Not a problem, but confusing.

The pitches are level but the grass part gets very worn and uneven which can result in large puddles if it rains.

Clubhouse/facilities are great if you want evening entertainment for the kiddies - Sparky and the Krew Club are there and it's dancing city. Take away food, shop, swimming pool. Everything catered for.

The down side -

The chemical disposal is the WORST I've encountered. It has no flush and a tap that splatters everything everywhere. Not good. Coupled with that, this area, despite being covered, suffered from rain flooding and it was not cleaned once in the whole week we were there. The grey water disposal was a little better but again, no evidence of being cleaned. As toilet waste disposal is the worst job of the holiday, it doesn't want to be made MORE unpleasant than it needs to be. !

The men's shower block looked reasonably clean but had that awful pervading smell of a public urinal which made it most unpleasant to use. Coupled with this, there were only three showers - one being the disabled. I got to the point where I showered in the van - which I'd rather not do. The worst showers I've used. Some I'd walk in barefoot. These? No way.

If Park Resorts attended to these small details, they would have a superb site here, worthy of a revisit from anyone. As it stands, I wouldn't go back.
