Reviewer: Iowkiss 6 reviews from this member

I agree with the other reviews on here. I had a warm welcome and after I wasn't bothered by the site staff but were on the end of the phone when needed. Planes were a little irritating but you get used to them. Likewise a bird scarer in a nearby field was a tad irritating too but neither at night. Loads of space for my 8 berth tent and car next to it, and cows the other side of the fence to say good morning. A rough track to the site so a sturdy vehicle is needed as you're in the sticks. (I have a Kia Cee'd which was fine). If you like wartime planes visit the 1940's Lancaster bomber and Lincolnshire Aviation Museum at East Kirkby - well worth it on taxi-run days especially! The wash rooms were 'back to nature' but clean and well kept inside, however a more powerful pump for the shower would benefit but water was hot. Only one wash room/shower for tents, and one for the pods and tepees so site would benefit from additional double wash room for busy times. No electric hook-up points. If you have kids watch out for the pond as it seems to be quite deep with no fencing. It certainly is value for money. Would definitely recommend for 'nature' camping but not for those who enjoy the luxuries. Would come again.

Rural, secluded, small site with ample pitch space, stayed in field view pitch, flat ground, own firepit. Would recommend and would return.

Would advise strong pegs, use of ground sheet/footprint as ground is a bit rough in places. Need to use your car to get supplies and get out and about.

Clean basic facilities. Plenty of walking routes.

Nearby RAF base with loud aircraft during day and night.

We stayed on the field rather than by the pond where there is absolutely masses of room for even the largest tent. The site was full for much of the time we were there (that's 3 tents 2 pods and a teepee) but the two toilets and a shower proved adequate and we never had to wait to use them. Equally they were cleaned daily and toilet roll etc was kept topped up. The site is 'off grid' so there is no EHU or lights in the toilets so make sure you take a torch, but the pods have solar LED lighting and the shower is hot.

Absolutely loads of wildlife we saw rabbits, hares, toads, pheasants and a barn owl, none of which seemed at all concerned by our presence. Also lots of butterflies and damsal flies.

The fire pits are brilliant but then they always are especially with children

As one reviewer has mentioned the site is under the RAF flight path and there are low flying jets. Personally we didn't find them a problem, I don't think they ever flew after midnight. Speaking to other people on the site some had stayed up plane spotting with the kids, some slept straight through them and didn't even notice them. We found that you got used to them but it is maybe worth bearing them in mind if your a light sleeper.

All in all a very nice site which we would be happy to revisit.

We stayed on the field in lapwing pitch, with a fire pit. Its a very large pitch and would fit all tents. We were concerned at first because limited toilet and shower facilities but there's only 2 toilets and 1 shower but never had to wait to use them, and all pitches were taken (four tents and 2 pods) so there were plenty of people to use the facilities. There is no play area for kids, but on a plus side there was plenty of wildlife for kids to see and plenty of walks around the site and also plenty of space to kick a football on the field.

We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend to everyone and if you wish to go to Skegness its just under 20 miles and easy drive. Happy camping <3

We were due to stay at this site for 2 nights. The setting is lovely great pond teaming with wildlife, my boys loved catching the dragon flies. The pitch was plenty big enough for our 8 birth tent and the camp fire facility is fantastic. Just right for my lads to burn off steam.

Unfortunately, this slot of perfection in in the flight path of the jet planes! These are a lovely novalty in the day, as they are so low. But when they are constant until 2am and the shake your tent (and I mean constant!)this wears off. I don't know if this is every night, but apparently they were until 12 the night before, we didn't stay the 2nd night (even though the skys seam a little quieter) wasn't worth another night.

We knew it was near the airforce base but expected it to be alttle less busy at night

Maybe if its only certain days it would be valid to tell campers

What a gem of a find this place is, wish we could have stayed longer. The woodland site is very spacious and well laid out surrounding a gorgeous pond. The pods themselves are amazing, easily accommodating the 4 of us in great comfort. We love our tent but at this time of year its great to just turn up without the squeeze in the car and the hassle of erecting it, drying it and packing it away again. Not only that the pods are warm and quiet, no flapping canvas all night.

Outside there are acres of woodlands to explore and at night we loved staring up at the starlit skies while we cozied up round our own campfire. Being so remote we saw loads of wildlife, particularly at dusk and dawn close to the pond and could hear even more. Some of the pheasants we saw seemed so tame we even gave names to a few. Although remote enough to offer proper peace and quiet, Skegness and all its attractions are close by as is Horncastle for antique and tea shops.

The site itself offers the mod cons of home including excellent toilets and hot showers, clothes line, pegs, toiletries rack, hot water dishwashing facilities, power for laptops, mobiles, LED lights but no electrical hook-ups.

Can't wait to visit again.
