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!
This was our second visit to Brookside after vowing always to return as it was the first site we had ever visited on our venture into camping. Changed to adult only now which was a shame as I had promised to bring the family and I don't honestly think it was necessary as children had not been a problem on my previous visit. Facilities are immaculate, piped music 24/7 in shower block, spotless showers and toilets with constant supply of hot water even if busy. Owner keen to impress and cannot do enough to help. The site is well laid out and you can be as private or sociable as you wish with your pitching. Short walk down to pub on banks of the trent or slightly longer uphill walk to the village with great food pub. Overall fully recommend this site but sadly no longer for families.
Visited Brookside for 3 nights in May, wish it could have been longer. It is situated in a very peaceful location not far from the River Trent and being adult only most of the time we were sat outside the 'van all we could hear was birds singing with the occasional 'plane going overhead. There are some nice walks down the side of the site with marvellous views over the Trent. The facilities are immaculate, spotlessly clean and had radio playing. The showers were quite spacious with plenty of hanging hooks for clothes and a seat outside the shower curtain, there were 2 in the ladies and 3 in the mens, there was also a wash cubicle, 3 toilets and 3 washbasins and a hairdryer in the ladies. The veg prep and dishwashing room was also where the book exchange was and also dvd's to borrow and some maps for walks and also the usual leaflets for local attractions. The nearest pub across the road from the site, the Ferry House, was only open evenings and didn't sell food (they're missing a good market) although it's in a lovely setting on the riverbank. The Sheffield Arms at the top of the hill serves good food reasonably priced. In the village about 10 minutes up the hill there is a minimarket, cafe and chinese takeaway which will deliver to the site. Finally must mention Richard, the owner, what a lovely man, very friendly and helpful, when he found out we were going to the new Go Outdoors store near Scunthorpe on Friday he lent us his discount card which was very kind. While we were out on Friday it was very windy and our awning decided to try to escape but Richard and 2 other gentlemen pegged it down again for us using some extra pegs Richard lent us. Was very sad to leave on the Sunday. We will return
