This site immediately impressed. The owners' attention to detail cannot be faulted - everywhere is clean and very well cared for. The pitch was spacious, fairly level (slabs for the wheels) and quite private. The toilet/shower facilities immaculately clean and well maintained - I have not seen better. We were made very welcome and although some people appear to object to being walked to their site, I thought it was a good way to ensure you were pitched correctly. The dog walks nearby are well signed and it is an easy walk to access the beaches. I will be back and hopefully the weather will be as good as last time - sunshine every day.
Have just spent a most enjoyable week at this brilliant site.
The facilities are among the cleanest I have ever found in many years of camping and caravanning. It was easy to find and no tricky lanes to negotiate providing you follow the directions provided by the site. The site was nicely manicured and the grass picked up so I didn't spend all week sweeping the caravan out. The pitches are large, but remember your rock pegs !As to the negative comment from a previous reviewer about being 'marched to your pitch', all I can say is utter rubbish. Kevin showed us to our pitch and asked if we would like him to direct us on, which we thought was a great time saver to us.
All in all a great adult only site with super walks on the door step.
Another enjoyable four nights at Cherry Tree Touring Site. As always a very friendly welcome. A lovely much appreciated touch by all is that the owner always takes you to your pitch and makes sure that everything is ok for you. We know the site well now but anyone coming for the first time I'm sure would appreciate how he points out all the facilities for you on the way to your pitch and makes sure you are happy before he leaves you. The facilities were immaculate as always. The owners never stop working hard to maintain the 5* standard of the site. A great credit to them. Can't wait to go back again. Would recommend to everyone.
Site was easy to find, but keep to site's directions (using A-roads). On arrival we were given a very warm welcome - both by the owners and a gentleman who was staying at the site, with said gentleman challenging me to find a better site than this in the whole country!
We immediately saw that the site was perfectly manicured, with neat hedges breaking up some areas, and all pitches being in neat rows. We were shown to our pitch, and the owner helped guide us onto it, which was a nice touch. There were slabs for the 'van wheels, a good idea we thought, and you had to park precisely on them, but it meant we had to squeeze our car alongside the 'van. The general size of the pitch was fine, though, with a useable patch of grass on 2 sides. The hard standing was made up of a thick layer of evenly-sized chippings, which meant the ground was easy to walk on, but we had a bit of a problem with the awning rock pegs as they were too short to reach the subsoil effectively. The site sold longer pegs, though.
The facilities were spotless - nothing really negative to say about them. Showers were a bit on the small side, but there was a curtain to keep the dressing area dry, so that was ok. A 'proper' tap - no push-button nonsense! and temperature was good once water warmed up. Plenty of hooks - always a bonus. There were privacy cubicles and a separate disabled suite accessed via a RADAR key.
Thought the WiFi was a tad pricey, but I've seen the owners' response to another review saying they'll be looking into it, so hopefully that aspect will be sorted.
As with most sites, there is a rule about dogs being kept on a lead but, as we find so often on many sites, some dogs were not a lead. A 'van opposite us had 2 dogs, neither of which was kept on a lead, and one roamed across our pitch and beyond, with the owner paying no heed to its whereabouts. My point is that, if there are rules and people flout them, owners/wardens should speak with people concerned, otherwise what's the point of the rule in the first place?
There seems to be a weekly grass-cutting regime as the 2 Thursdays we were there a sign outside the loos asked people to remove items from their grass area for mowing. Not seen this before as usually site operators wait for people to leave and then bring out the mower. It was a little inconvenient but not a huge problem - just thought I'd mention it in case you like to spread out on your pitch.
The 'footpath' to the seaside was via a part-mown grass strip and an overgrown strip which has been trampled down by feet, with lots of potholes, so be very careful. It is, however, mostly a flat walk to the sea, although I thought the walk along the promenade a little featureless, apart from the many, many beach huts, lots of which needed tlc. (Perhaps I'm spoilt, coming from the beautiful, characterful coastline of Wales!).
So, in response to the gentleman's challenge - is this the best site ever? Sadly not in our opinion - I won't drop names here - but it's quite high up on our list. Keep up the good work!
Yes this is a lovely well kept site, immaculately clean, walking distance to Sutton on Sea & cycling distance to Mablethorpe. Well done to the owners. However during our stay we noticed a comment in the comment book someone quite rightly having a little moan about the high wifi charges and was not happy being marched to their pitch and told how to park (which my husband did comment on too). The next day I went back in to leave our feedback and the whole page had been removed! Therefore I didn't leave my feedback.
So the owners really should listen to constructive comments it can only help you run a more perfect site, not remove them from your comment book and only leave all the good reviews, a bit sneaky I think? Surely that's the whole point of having the book there?
Even so a very good site within walking distance to the sea. And if was to be a bit negative I would comment on the road noise (they can't tear this page out!)
Management response: Thankyou for your kind comments regarding the upkeep of our park and also the guest review file in our tourist information cabin during your stay. Kevin had taken the page out of the guest comment file so we could discuss the negative review and it has since been put back.
Regarding Kevin showing you to your pitch. We would like to advise that we always show our customers to their pitch on arrival, as many parks do. We find this gives us the opportunity to pass on information regarding the parks main facilities and also to advise on the operation of the security barriers on the park, as well as making sure you find your pitch easily.
The price for the WIFI on the park has been the same since we took over the park in April 2013. We do agree that it may seem a little high in comparison to other areas that have a better broadband infrastructure. WIFI is an aspect we intend to improve on and hopefully prices will be able to be reduced when possible.
This is a beautifully manicured, extremely clean and tidy site. The toilet/ shower block is lovely and clean.
However if you are under retirement age, do not go to this site. We stayed for three nights and the only sound we heard from the whole campsite was the birds singing in the morning. There is no atmosphere what so ever. This site is ok if you enjoy total peace and quiet.
