Well what can I say about this site. I have been looking for it for 2 years and found it, what a great place. The showers are fab, so clean and the toilets are clean. The place itself is so well maintained it needs a award for best kept site. It's well hid but easy to find. The owner of the site is so friendly and very helpful. Cant wait to go back in two weeks time, we have found a place where we can keep going back. Love it.
We've just returned from a weekend at this site and I'd love to write how terrible it was, But that would be only to deter you from visiting a fabulous site and we could keep it to ourselves!
On arrival we were met by the lady owner who walked through the site pointing out all the important things(toilets, CDP, rubbish bins etc) She showed us to our pitch and made sure we were happy and then left us to set up.
The grass was lovely and short with a good kept hedges offering protection from the wind, not that there was any.
We were situated right opposite the play area which was fantastic for our 2 daughters, who were no sooner out of the car playing in full view of us whilst we set up. The pitch was a good size even for our Maritsa 700. It had EHU. The animals on site also provided hours of entertainment for us. Chickens which are the providers of the eggs that are sold on site in a little hut near the amenities block. Small horses which love to be stroked, and a few sheep in the same large area.
At the other side of the animals is two large fishing lakes which well away from the play area which gave us a piece of mind. We were also directed to a few walks in the area that give you a good feel for the countryside. There is plenty of wildlife in the area, wood pigeons, pheasants and much to our delight Deer! we saw a mother deer with her two young in the corn field on the Friday night. Then on the Saturday night we went looking for some more and saw another one!
The toilets/ shower block was always clean, plenty of hot water and toilet roll. It's central heated too which wasn't on but would be a nice welcome in the cooler months. The pot wash area was small but adequate. There was a washing machine in there (£2. 00) also a fridge freezer and a pay phone. There was plenty of info leaflets for the attractions in the local area, plus on the outside wall was a chalk board with any local events that were taking place.
The nearest towns were Newport and Gilberdyke. They both had fish and chip shops, shops, butchers etc. Oh and pubs too.
The location of the site is peaceful and very little noise can be heard from the M62 which is only a five minute drive away.
The site is mainly tourers with 5 or so statics which 3 of them can be hired from the park.
The play area like I said is really good for the kids with a mixture of swings, slides, tower and a giant draughts set. There is also a large grassed area for football etc which is separated from the units by a large conifer hedge.
Overall this site is a true gem of a site. Quiet, really clean, friendly, nice location, good facilities, pleasant owners.
Just returned from a fantastic weekend here. Pitch was more than ample in size (we have a Vango Maritsa 600 therefore pretty big). Owners were more than accommodating in placing us right next to the play area as we have 2 kids. The play area has fantastic modern wooden equipment plus a draughts board & ball games field with football nets. There were also chickens, ponies & sheep which the children enjoyed feeding grass through the fence.
The whole site was very clean and tidy including the shower/toilet facilities and laundry room. Could do with having another washing up sink as we had to queue a couple of times, and also a tumble dryer would be good to dry towels after shower. The site was nice & quiet although it wasn't full, there was no road noise at all.
Lovely walks down the lane and round the fishing ponds. There is an indian, chinese, fish & chip shop, pizza takeaway and pub in the nearest village. Tried the fish & chip shop which was lovely. Overall a fantastic site and will definitely be visiting again!
One of the best sites I have ever been camping on. I went with my wife and 2 children aged 8 and 13 and with my wife's parents and grandaughter aged 7 for 2 nights, but we ended up staying an extra night.
This is a a site with a small number of camping pitches and mainly tourers. This site is immaculately clean. No litter anywhere and really well looked after which is a credit to the owners, who are very helpful.
The pot wash, toilet and shower facilities were also very clean, which makes a change from a lot of the sites we have been to where people don't care how they leave them.
The elsan and skip for rubbish is screened off so you wouldn't know they are there at all.
There is a lovely park for the children, a giant size draughts board and also a football area which the kids loved.
There are walks outside of the site up to the river and also a short walk away is an area with 2 nice fishing lakes.
There is a shop in the village as well as pubs, takeaways, etc which is about 1-2 miles away.
It is a very quiet site and very peaceful and relaxing.
I have already booked another couple of nights here as I am that impressed. If only there were more sites as good as this one.
Brilliant site, I couldn't pick a faulty if I tried. The site was very clean, Children's play area very clean, Toilets/showers very clean.
The lady and gentleman that owned the site were always nice and helpful. The lady placed us next to the playground so that my daughter could play and we could see her.
Lovely walk for the dogs. I don't fish so cant comment on that. You have to buy the free range eggs, we took some home with us. The owners had also put a bbq/party for the jubilee and we were made to feel very welcome, even moving the venue to the barn so that we were all dry as the British weather let us down again.
It's a very quiet site, so no parties or people falling about drunk. Its just very quiet and relaxing place.
Would highly recommend and we will definitely be going back again.
We last visited this site 23 years ago and it was lovely then. We decided to revisit this year. It is still completely unspoilt as it was all those years ago.
The 2 new fishing pools are exclusively for the site users only so peg availability is really good and so is the fishing, if you are after carp in double figures then I would recommend Bakers 2 miles down the road.
The fish at Sandholme are newly stocked but the Carp and Bream are in really good condition. The fishing pool area and campsite is extremely clean and well kept,
the Toilets and showers are exceptional and central heated any one looking for a peaceful fishing or touring holiday will not be disappointed at Sandholme.
We will definitely be going back in 2012. The site is not very large so booking is a must to avoid disappointment, this site is definitely highly recommended by us.
