Just got back from this site in general this site is very good for fishing, a swimming pool for kids, a pub that's does good meals and fine ales and the price per night to pitch up is reasonable. Now the downside the toilet block/showers are the worst I have ever used, you have two sinks no soap no hand dryer the showers are 20p tokens but the machines are fitted to a wall outside of the shower unit and as soon as the token is put in the shower kicks in there is no stop and start button you need to put the curtain across or your clothes get wet. Also who ever fitted the shower doors must have been crazy you have to stand in the shower tray to close it. That said for the price the site is ok but if you are in a touring van use your own

We spent three lovely nights at this site with friends in our tents.

The site is it feels situated in the middle on nowhere but is in fact a ten minute drive from Lincoln, it is as some of the other reviews have mentioned have a mixture of static and touring caravans. It also occasionally allows tents on. It is true some of the caravans are old and not to the standard many sites have but we didn't feel this has a negative.

The adjoining pub (it did have more of a WMC feel to it) and facilities could in fairness do with a bit of love and attention. There was something going off most nights and the bingo went down a treat especially as the girls won, an 80's night was on the Saturday night but as the web site had not advertised this we hadn't fetched anything so didn't go (apparently a new web site is ready soon with much more information on) however dispute the site needing TLC everything seemed clean and the showers were hot and there was plenty of them around the site.

The main thing about this site besides the owners being friendly is it's love of fishing, our two sons (8 and 12) had not really fished before but within a few minutes with the help of the friends we had come with had both landed large fish and continued to do so. One of the lakes you could fish in for the price you had paid or for a minimal fee you could have a day pass to one of the other lakes, the owner even would supply a set up kit for the kids at a very reasonable price.

The parks were like most of the site in need of TLC and the heated swimming pool wasn't very heated as our children discovered but on a hot summers day would be great.

With the fishing and EHU included in the price we felt this was good value for money and one we will return to.

Used the campsite in 2012 and found it really loud, this put us off going again so didn't go back in 2013 however decided to give it a go again as heard that it had upgraded and more fishing lakes added and was really glad we did. The new fishing lakes are great. You can have a lovely walk with the dog on the river bank and they have added some seating looking onto the new lakes which is nice and great when sunny. The camp office staff are really friendly and helpful which is nice and I wouldn't hesitate to book again now. One thing I would like to know though is where is the nearest fish &chip shop.

Just returned fro our first trip to Short Ferry and it will not be our last !

On arrival we were given a plan of the site, along with key for the showers and toilet(5 deposit). The site is larger than we were expecting, but it is so friendly. The pitch was very large and level. There are 2 rivers and 5 lakes/ponds for fishing, the carp lake is stuffed full with fish.

The toilets and showers are set in 2 blocks back to back, the ones facing towards the lakes are definitely the better ones. The Pub and entertainment rooms are very nice too.

There is an outdoor swimming pool, with 2 pools, one which is just for the kids. These are being updated for next year, (what we were told anyway). I would recommend this for anyone that likes fishing, or those with kids, or people that just want a quiet time, In fact it is a site for everyone.

We went here as it wasn't to far from home and it was the last weekend before kids going back to school.

On arrival staff friendly and explained all we needed to know.

we were on 49 and 50 pitch as we had two caravans in our party, in total four adults and one child.

It was a perfect spot as it was 1mins to the shower block, 2mins to the fishing pond and 5mins to the pool, bar and shop walking.

Plenty of kids, my son is 9yrs and made friends straight away.

We paid 32 for a weekend and the only other thing we had to pay for was 5 for fishing but you can fish all day and you have to use there keep nets. My husband caught the most he had ever caught and the biggest.

It was beautiful weather so we went to the heated swimming pool my son loved it, it was a little cold but even I took the pludge and used it all weekend.

The pub on site had everything, good food, kids play room, teenage area and entertainment suite which had bingo and live acts.

Will be going to this site when ever we get a free weekend.

What a disappointment, after passing through an aged static park to get to the touring section, the pitch was of good size and shielded by leylandi hedge,

there was a constant smell of foul sewerage,

the shower block were portable cabin type (20p for a shower), very dated and in want of refreshing,

A basic shop that!

A top price site that doesn't deserve the star credit it has achieved
