We have been to this site twice this summer and enjoyed it both times. The site is well kept with lovely large pitches and space around them for the kids to play. Also a lovely large separate field to play ball games etc on.

The toilet blocks are lovely, clean and light and the showers powerful and warm.

The owners/wardens were really helpful when booking and also when we were on site.

The site was very quiet after 10. 30pm which was great as some groups had loudish music on in the day but were very quiet in the evening.

The site is in a great spot right next to the countryside but within 15 minutes walk to the village either along the road or through the woods which the kids loved. The village is very picturesque - has several cafes, including an ice cream parlour which we tried and which was great, a fantastic bakery/deli and a nice pub in the middle with a great kids play area. The site is also next to Jubilee Park which has a lovely play area and the outdoor pool which is heated and most enjoyable on a warm sunny evening.

We would definitely go back for a third visit!

Great site, very clean & tidy with very pleasant wardens. Pitch sizes are generous & flat. Water taps on EHU was a nice touch.

Good size dog walking area and another separate grass area with football goals. Park a few minutes away with play area, outdoor pool and tennis courts.

Only negative point we could say about the entire site is that when the site is full there is probably not quite enough showers, but this would not deter us from returning and would only be a very minor inconvenience (no pun intended) and they are kepted exceptionally clean.

Overall a great site and if you are looking to holiday in this area we would recommend Petwood without hesitation.

A few minutes walk away is the village centre, which has a great selection of shops including the bakery other reviewers have mentioned and still serving the most delicious cakes!

Whilst in the area, we enjoyed horse riding at Hundleby & the children tried wakeboarding at Tattershall Park which was definitely worth the 11 each for a 1hr child taster session (must book in advance).

We followed a couple of AA walks, first one starting in Donnington-on-Bain (6m long) - recommend you go opposite way so the steepest part is at the very begining and almost at the end is a lovely stretch beside the River Bain (more of a stream) where you can picnic & the children & dogs can cool off with a paddle! Our other AA walk started in Belchford (8m long) with a choice of pubs in Tetford 2/3 the way round. We lunched in the Cross Keys, cheap food & drink in a quirky pub with very friendly staff. Both available on AA website to print off directions.

We also enjoyed going to Snipes Dale Country Park, selections of colour code trails from 30mins to 2hrs.

Petwood is a great base to explore some lovely countryside, the wolds are very pretty and there is a surprising amount to do in the area, all without the crowds and traffic other parts of the country experiences during the school holidays.

Superb campsite. The staff couldn't have been more helpful; when I initially tried to book they were full due to the 1940s weekend taking place in Woodhall but the receptionist telephoned the next day to say she had managed to fit us in. The two amenity blocks are absolutely immaculate, the pitches are large and level, there is a stock of basics at reception and a football field to keep the kids happy. Its also quite a bit cheaper than what we have paid on other more inferior sites. Wonderful Woodhall is minutes away with its by-gone charm and the park and lido couldn't be more conveniently situated. We attended the 1940s weekend which was superb. We had a very reasonably priced meal at The Mall in Woodhall when we couldn't get in at The Village Limits pub up the road. We will book next time. 'Zucci' is a very nice Italian bistro in Woodhall. We will definitely use this campsite again very soon.

We are new to camping and have only ever camped at Petwood, so I decided to leave a review, as I have found them very helpful when booking other sites for the summer.

This site is immaculate and clean. The pitches are a very reasonable size and no one appeared to be too far from the toilet block. The site is not completely dark at night and it is easy to visit the toilets without having to take a torch.

This is slightly more expensive per night than neighbouring sites, but we felt the cleanliness and pitch size meant it was worth paying.

In the surrounding area there is the lovely Kinema, which is worth a visit and my kids loved he outdoor pool.

This has been a very good site to start camping at, but my only worry is that other sites won't match up to this one.

In short a top notch site!

In detail: Helpful friendly staff, immaculate toilets and showers. Small well kept and just fabulous! We had a great spot overlooking the play field which was great for the kids. South facing on a Mega hot July weekend on level grass pitch with plenty of space.

Little on site facilities but they didn't need it. Public park suitable for children of all ages within a few minutes walk, outdoor lido that was so popular we couldn't get in, Woodhall spa centre 10 min walk max which had everything.

We had a great carvery at the hotel pub in woodhall centre and can't wait to return to try the restaurant in the woods as this looked fab but was just closing when we found it!

We went for the weekend as we went to waddington air show which was fabulous but would have been equally happy to have spent the whole weekend on site/ in woodhall spa and will defo be returning to petwood.

Site is clean & tidy.

Showers inadequate for site when full.

Wardens helpful & showed you to your pitch.

Shop basic but plenty of shops in Woodhall Spa

Pitches are large enough for caravan car & awning.

When we were there the site very busy and more than 1 car is allowed per pitch so our area looked more like a car park than a campsite. Would not visit again during busy season.
