We decided to go away last minute and didn't want to go too far as we knew we would be leaving home after tea on the Friday. Normally like to leave thurs night or early ish on a Friday. So after getting slightly lost, following sat nav. Even though the lovely site owners told hubby not to! So we arrived as it was almost dark & too late to put awning up :-/ Had some help finding a spot and getting rigged up which was great. We had taken our new granddaughter away with us too & our 2 nutty dalmations! Had a nice quiet evening although rather windy outside :-/
Next day we had a lovely breakfast and had a good look round the place. Fab! Plenty of room for each pitch, water tap every 4/5 pitches. Some seasonal, some hardstandings and some grass pitches. Very well looked after all round. A cafe is open at certain times of the year. A kiddies playground. We took the dogs for a good walk around the woods which was lovely as it was a nice sunny afternoon and not too cold at all. Showers and washing area excellent. Best thing of all we thought. And wish other sites would have it too. Was the DOG WASH area! Fab, doesn't take much to add this facility and its something we talk about regularly when we go away. So 10 out of 10 for tht guys! We had a very pleasant stay and will definitely go back soon.
Booked the site via phone on Friday morning in mid March. Only grass pitches left (which means in summer you will probably need to book in advance). Both the site's web page and the very helpful lady on the phone said, 'don't follow your sat nav', however with little time to make other arrangements, I followed the Kia's sat nav and ended up having to ring the site and be talked in.
Owners have had the site two years and have transformed it. We arrived in the dark and very helpful chap helped me find the pitch, get the van level and unhitch. I was a little worried about lack of lightning on site, but wow, once my eyes adjusted the star gazing was awesome. Site hard standings and grass pitches all with 10 amp hook up. My grass pitch was a slightly sloping, but nothing major. 10amp always gives us issues with the Bailey's microwave, and we know to turn everything off before engaging micro power! Lots of water points, but I could find only two CDP's not a big issue on a site this size. Excellent location near to Walesby woods, both dogs very pleased with the walks. Site has a good play area for active youngsters.
Toilet block was clean, warm and showers had plenty of hot water, a shower mate might help, if you have one. Site also boasts a cafe, it was yet to open for the season, but menu looked good. Market Rasen, close by, has everything you need. We could hear some trains and a couple of cars, but neither was intrusive at all. Weather was once again kind, and we had two days of sunshine.
We paid 44 pounds for two nights, Andrea, myself and the two dogs. Happy to recommend the site, but I'd expect it to be booked during summer.
Very nice site, wasn't around much in the days I stayed, but everything appeared shipshape, so I can pretty much go along with the other positive reviews on here. Just one major query though that no one else seems to have mentioned: what on earth is the 10pm curfew all about? If you arrive back after this time you have to park outside the site as no traffic movement is allowed on site between 10pm and 8am. Rather archaic, isn't it?
Having read the reviews and just purchased our first touring caravan decided to stay close to home for our first trip, unfortunately there was no power when we arrived due to the bad weather, but the owners were very good and helped us set up and showed us how to get the gas working, we were able to pick our own pitch and even told we could practice reversing and parking the van into different pitches to get use to it, they could not do enough for us and made us feel very settled, this is a lovely site and I would not hesitate in recommending it for it's peace, tranquillity and beautiful wooded walks, it was perfect for us having two dogs.
Stayed on this site for 3 nights. Owners very friendly and helpful. We had trouble with our awning light and the owner not only took a look at it but went into town and bought us the replacement we asked for. He fitted it for us while we were out. What a super couple. Site lovely setting and very peaceful, wonderful autumn colours although you could hear the drone of the busy road a little distance away if everything around you was quiet.
Toilet block heated and welcoming, although not new it was more than adequate and very clean. Each sink (about 6 or more in the ladies) had their own handwash - all different. The shower cubicles (2 in each) were small but worked fine (push button). There was a very handy walk from the site through the woods up the lane for dog owners. One lady had been coming to this site for over 20 years so that says something. Market Rasen only a few minutes away in the car and a footpath could be taken if you wanted to walk it I was informed. We found Rasen to be a bit tired but better on a market day.
Some folk in a motor home took advantage of the caravan/motorhome washing service offered. What we saw looked very professional and a good job. Free internet was offered but they were having trouble with the two servers and they had to keep being reset. Hopefully it will be sorted soon as this service was very useful for us.
