Unfortunately this site is getting worse and from a fishing point of view it is now down to 1 lake (the Kingfisher lake is unfishable unless you clear your swim due to lack of water maintenance) bringing in a water bailiff or someone that cares about fishing ect. Would be a good start, as this is an unacceptable situation to be in if you're charging for fishing in a lake there shouldn't be the need to do the job of the site staff(water bailiff). The new toilet block although well located, and well thought out it is no longer maintained as it used to be it has gone from checked and cleaned every day to wait till someone complains or as and when it's thought about. As for value for money the camping yes is great but the fishing does need a lot to be desired, especially after all the larger fish were removed when it ownership was taken over. After going when it was under the old owner and regularly to date it is a noticeable slip of standards although the new toilet/shower block was brought in under this owner and a much needed improvement it was. The site is now aiming mainly at the sale of chalets/cabins and hard standings for static vans and moving away from the caravan and motorhome users that come for the fishing or a short stay. This needs to be addressed before it becomes just the owners of the chalets and the people with caravans stored there as the only users as this will not only limit the customers but also the chance of development of farther improvements IE wheelchair access (even the new disabled facilities in the new block feature a step to get over (something that needs addressing to maximise usability in case someone is there without the use of their legs or very unsteady when walking) with the local transport links there is pretty much everything you could need just a short walk and a bus journey away (Lincoln city centre)

Lovely quiet site set around fishing lakes.

The facilities were new and clean and not too far from the pitches.

There were a lot of seasonal pitches which looked a little bit crammed in on the hardstanding area, but there was plenty of room on the grassy touring area (next to the new toilet block)

Not much happening in the local village which was a 5 minute walk away - one pub had shut down and the other was undergoing refurbishment and was only open in the evening.

There is a regular bus service to and from Lincoln which cost us 7. 50 each way for 2 adults and a dog.

All in all - a good site which we would use again if in the area.

2 night stay, beautiful site, excellent staff. A very relaxing stay with the best facilities we have ever come across. No bad sides to this park. 10 minutes from historic City of Lincoln. I don't fish myself but spoke to those who do and all where complimentary of the well stocked lakes.

Just had a lovely, peaceful & restful 6 days overlooking the many beautiful views of the lakes & trees.

Husband has enjoyed his successful days of excellent fishing.

Although this has only been our 2nd visit over the last 2 years we haven't changed our opinion of the site or staff.

We witnessed the start of many improvements & now have seen the excellent new toilet/shower block; warm, clean & spacious. The new Clamping Cabin looks awesome.

If you want a quiet midweek break then this is the spot.

Beautiful peaceful site. Very secure and well maintained. Warden is very helpful and accessible. Facilities well looked after. Around a 10 minute drive into up hill cathedral area of Lincoln. There's a Waitrose and Tesco within 10 minute drive as well as a good Indian take away / restaurant (Mach).

I think the best pitches are the ones around the lake but there is a good choice. Very dog friendly. Highly recommend this site.

Fab welcome by name: 'We have been expecting you Mr Edwards. '

Camped well away from the caravans by the side of the football goals which made for an excellent drying rack. Most of the vans are weekenders so unoccupied mid week. The site was very quite, a little distant road noise only. So we had the best nights sleep of the trip.

There are two toilet blocks, one a month old which has several unisex wet rooms plus a wet room with no loo and a separate toilet. There are two small snags with this:

- There are no mats by the doors, so the wet rooms get used just for the loo and muddy feet leave a trail.

- There is no indication of occupancy, so people try the doors when you are in.

But they were spotless and it does mean you are in a shower which is not next to a toilet being used by someone else. Also very handy for families. However, they do have the 30 second buttons, which I'm not a great fan of.

Much nearer to our tent was an older block with laundry and dishwashing facilities, which were good, but the loos were clearly past their best and I assume due for replacement now they have the new block. I went in once and didn't use them again as the new block was worth the walk.

The site is ideal for those fishing (not us) but not much in the way of anything for children other than the football pitch with two goals.

Big electric security gate for which you have to get a fob, so don't forget to ask if you need to. The local pub does food, but not every night, so if cycle touring, you need to bring supplies.
