This was our second 5 day visit to this site, and it was just as fantastic as we remembered from last year.
Richard is so welcoming, and the site friendly and relaxed.
Toilets are spotless, showers lovely and warm and hardly ever had to wait for one.
Other facilities include washing up, washing machine, dryer, iron, recycling and free dvd/book library. Also free wi-fi.
We got to choose our pitch from approx 6 available, although every pitch is lovely.
The only noise is from the birds, owls and occasional deer (we have been told). Although this time we did have a ship that hung around for an hour and some youth on a motorbike that insisted on riding around out on the road. But even this would not put us off staying again, as first visit there was nothing like that.
It's lovely to sit in the pub garden watching the sunset and occasional ship passing by.
Lots of lovely walks around, although you do have to climb uphill to start any of them, and lots more around to drive to.
With no children on site, this is a quiet, relaxed and easy going place to stay. Recommend to all.
What an immaculate site! There is a section as you drive in for visitors cars which was useful as we were there to visit family nearby. You have to leave your van and walk to the owners house which is behind the facilities block at the far end of the site. He then shows you around and takes you to a pitch. A very friendly and welcoming man. The shower was probably the best one I have ever used and the block had piped local radio at all times. It was spotless and well appointed. Free DVD loan and book swap available. Just at the end of the site there is a bridle path which once you get to the top of the ridge, flattens out to a lovely walk - we walked a couple of miles to the left and there were fantastic views. There is a pub just outside the site which had been flooded but had just opened again - we had to avoid the one side as the paint was still wet! Lovely local people there - very friendly. They will have a small café on site there soon too. Nice garden overlooking river. Good pub/restaurant at top of village (up very steep hill)and small local shop. Would advise making sure you stop for essentials before going down the hill if you don't have a separate vehicle! Lovely site - deserves its rating but was more friendly than some other rated sites - there were no 'Do Not' notices!
Just had 2 nights at Brookside Caravan and Camping Park. What a fabulous place! Our first visit but not our last. The pitches, toilets/showers, access road/grounds are of a standard that is beyond belief. After 21 years of touring-caravanning in the UK and continental Europe my wife and I are happy to declare that this site is equally as good as any we have used, anywhere. Well done Richard, your place is a credit to you. Your attention to detail is outstanding. Thanks for allowing us to experience perfection!
The site and facilities were immaculate. The owner was friendly and gave us the option to choose our own pitch, then left us to it. The site is secure with swipe card barrier entry. The surrounding area is not best know for its tourism but there are a few places worth a look. Normanby Country park and house was worth a visit. Some decent woodland walks adjoining site too. Scunthorpe has a decent shopping centre or if you want something more sedate, Brigg was quite attractive. We used the local pub nearest to the site, a bit rough looking but OK. Had some live music on when we were there which was pretty good. Would definitely visit again.
Nice well maintained site. Spacious pitches surrounded on a couple of sides by well manicured hedges. The toilet/shower block was very clean which ever time of day we used them. The owner couldn't have been more helpful, personally showing everybody who arrived where everything was. There's a dog walking field at one end of the site or there's a path up into the woods at the other end.
There is a pub very close, and up the hill in the village there's another, also a Chinese, a shop, café and a post office. The Chinese was one of the best we have had, reasonably priced and plentiful portions.
We would normally go further afield but as we had swapped vans we needed somewhere close just to set up and make sure everything worked, but foe a quick weekend out it was ideal and I'm sure we'll return in the future
Brookside is a very special site. We ended up staying rather longer than we'd originally intended and loved every minute there. The site is beautifully laid out, with generously sized HS pitches and a big, lovely field where we spent most of our stay. The showers, toilets and washrooms are excellent and kept spotlessly clean. There's also a good laundry room, washing-up facilities, and very good facilities for disabled visitors.
The site owner and team are lovely and couldn't have been more helpful.
This is an adults-only site, quiet without being stuffy, and very friendly. It's very dog-friendly, with a separate field for exercising dogs and fantastic walks straight off the site. Burton-upon-Stather is within easy walking distance, with a groceries shop, Post Office, cafe, and pubs. The River Trent is a 2 minute walk from the site. Behind the site is a lovely greenwood where owls hoot at night, and a footpath leading to a wonderful walk along the ridge with views across the Trent and lots of fascinating places to explore en route (we recommend Alkborough Flats nature reserve - stop off for lunch or tea and cake at the farm tearooms in Alkborough, very nice!).
The area is fascinating, with a rich history to discover, charming villages to visit, lovely countryside, and a wealth of birdlife and other wildlife.
We've been travelling for 6 months so far and our stay at Brookside has been one of the highlights. We felt very sad leaving this wonderful place and intend returning next year!
