Good location for Lincoln, site down quiet lane away from a busy road. Bus stop within mile walk. Entry is by a gate operated with a fob system so is well secure.

No shop within walking distance, so maybe reception could sell 'essentials'. There is a pub a 10 min walk away which has been refurbished with good beer.

The site is a bit tired and in need of some upgrading ie. Old toilet block/signage. I thought some of the grass pitches should be graveled with the site being open all year, would look better than placing cones around wet areas. Also, some of the seasonal tourers let the site down by needing a good wash and some of the awnings are in poor condition and look as if they have been up from 1 year to the next.

Could be a gem of a site if the owners want it to be.

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 The new toilet block although well located, and well thought out it is no longer maintained as it used to be it has gone from checked and cleaned every day to wait till someone complains or as and when it's thought about.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.
