This site consists of some pitches around a lake under trees and three large fields, one with hard standings, one all grass but with electrics and one all grass no electrics. Although the road runs alongside these there is very little traffic, if any, at night. Warden said wifi can be iffy under the trees.

On arrival the warden was very friendly and helpful, taking the time to point out everything you needed to know, despite the rain.

There is one facilities block which was always kept very clean, only three showers in the ladies, but I never had to queue.

Small fenced play area, with climbing equipment and slide. Be aware there is a largish lake which is unfenced.

The site was fairly quiet during the week, but starts getting busy from Friday afternoons for the weekend. Being a CCC the wardens site you, but why when there was one caravan and one tent at opposite ends of a field do they site a motorhome on the pitch next door and a large tent right next to the small 2 man one. The small tent were not amused and moved to the opposite side.

The site is a fair way outside the town itself and although within walking distance for some I didn't see a footpath, and vehicles do go fast along the country roads.

The dog walk is very small, although handy for the first thing in the morning and last thing at night, unfortunately the woods/heathland surrounding the site is an SSSI and out of bounds to dogs. Dogs can be walked along the verge on the road out side, but be aware it is a single track road with some fast traffic. The closest good walk I found is 'Ostler's Plantation' if you go towards Woodhall Spa it is on the left, just before a rather nice Caravan Club CL on the right, it is not signposted from the road, but if you go down the track it opens into a good car parking area. It consists of part of the old airfield and there are some ruined RAF buildings and hard standings. Lots of trees and good paths.

The town itself is excellent with lots of individual shops, must see in the area, Kinema in the woods, even if you don't fancy the films, go for the setting, decor and the organist rising from the floor. Just along the road is the old tea rooms, left over from the days of the fashionable Spa. Don't forget East Kirkby to see Just Jane, RAF Coningsby for the Battle of Britain Flight, if you go there it's worth having a drive around the perimeter of the airfield, there are several places to pull in and watch today's military aircraft. There are lots of other military sites in the area. Lincoln castle and cathedral, go early (9ish) and there's plenty of parking just by the castle walls.

The highlight of my visit was morning coffee in the Petwood Hotel, once the Officers Mess of the Dambusters. We asked to see the squadron bar and were asked if we would like our coffee served in there. Staff were very friendly, would love to go back for their popular afternoon tea on the terrace, the restaurant looked wonderful.

Booked online using the really good Club website.

Greeted on arrival in reception by a cheery man - shown to our pitch on a bike. He joked with our daughter with tales of the 'Woodhall Wombat' which was cool.

Pitched in a large field pretty much by ourselves. Had to link electric hookup into opposite field though so no problem.

Grass is closely mown which is great. Too many places leave long grass but always helpful to have nicely trimmed as it always less maintainance when cleaning dowm.

Nice pond area with walks around the site.

Clean facilities. 2 gripes. Broken mens loo seats in gents and wife complained it should have been heated.

Showers - great. Hot powerful and controllable. None of the push button malarky !

Would recommend Woodhall spa - within walking distance or few mins drive for forgotten essentials such as bread and beer. On a serious note looks like there are some good eats here - I would check tripadvisor.

Coast 40 mins drive. Try gibraltar point for peace and quiet rather than cheesy skegness or mablethorpe.

Also would recommend Tattershall Castle - 10 mins drive away. Free to National Trust members, but TBH I would join and get money back to enjoy free camping days out elsewhere. Kids particularly enjoyed audio guide.

First time at this site. what a lovely site. friendly people that was looking after the site while we were there. Nothing too much trouble even helped us park the caravan in the pouring rain.

The only down side was the waste pointm having back problems found it strange to have to lift the toilet waste up to empty, the waste point was inside, not good idea the smell can be very off putting.

Annual Dad and Lad trip goes to Lincolnshire for a tour of the nearby aviation heritage and a bit of seaside.

We received a very warm welcome and a choice of available pitches. We pitched just to the right of the entrance agains the boundary. The road is not very busy so we were not disturbed by traffic. Pitch was a bit flinty but otherwise tidy and no holes.

Less than 100 yds to the facilities. I never had to queue for anything. Site is well maintained as you'd expect. C&CC managers helpful and not at all officious.

Light relief provided by the herd of ducks that roam the site begging for food. They behaved like minions and I imagined them yellow wearing dungarees! Entertaining and never a problem.

Nearby: Battle of Britain Memorial Flight visitor centre, Tattershall Castle, Jubilee swimming pool, Kinema in the Woods, East Kirby Aviation Heritage centre, Skegness etc.

Lots to see and do. Had to go home for a rest.

Stayed for 3 nights and was sited in the rally field as we had asked for a non service pitch which was fine. Lovely, intimate site with all the facilities you would expect from a C&C club site.

Ebrington Arms is the nearest pub, but a good 30 minute walk from the site along unlit roads with no footpath. Not a problem as roads quiet, just remember to take a torch if coming back in the dark.

Woodhall Spa is a good 50 minute walk the other way and is not more that a one pub village. Pretty though and the Petwood Hotel is a must. Used as an RAF officers mess during WW2 it is full of memorabilia and the afternoon tea on the terrace is to die for. We were even treated to a Dakota flyby (Waddington Air Show weekend)!

Also visited Claythorpe watermill/Wildfowl gardens and Tattershall Castle. We also did some nice rides through the Lincolnshire Wolds, all recommended. Popped into Mablethorpe, not that great and not worth the effort.

All in all a great site if a little isolated for us.

Our second visit to Woodhall Spa, this time for a week. Wardens were friendly and helpful. We were given a choice of pitches and the one we picked was next to the pond, with plenty of space between us and the neighbours. Not level though, we did need the cheese wedge under one wheel to ensure no one fell out of bed.

Facilities block was nice and clean with plenty of hot water and good, powerful showers. Large sinks in the pot wash (indoor)

We couldn't get any kind of signal for the mobiles (O2) but the TV signal was brilliant, using our status aerial on the van, and the site wi fi was good from our pitch.

Used the local pub in Kirkby for a first rate meal and a good selection of local ales. Had days out in Lincoln and Boston, as well as the local airfields for WWII history. The Castle at Tattershall is a must. Great view from the top and the audio tour is informative. Had tea and home made cake in the adjacent church for a very reasonable price and parking is free.

Lovely site this one, definitely on our return again list.
