Reviewer: Gazal59 10 reviews from this member

 This is a really nice caravan park, the pitches are all large and level with plenty of space for caravan, awning and car. It is about a 5 min drive from the A1, and to be honest we have stayed on numerous occasions and you can hardly hear the noise coming from the A1.

The grounds and pitches are very well kept and the toilets and showers are always clean and tidy, and you're never too far from a standpipe, waste water or elsan point. There are two fishing lakes, one of them being in the adult only area. I'm not a fisherman myself but I have seen plenty of fish being caught.

The staff and wardens who work there are polite and helpful and are always happy to advise. There is a really nice dog walk with views across lovely open countryside. Grantham is a short drive away and there are a few nice villages close by.

I would recommend Wagtail country park, it never fails to disappoint us.

 Had a lovely peaceful weekend at this site.

Friendly welcome from the warden, the site is lovely and tidy, well looked after, and the toilet facilities were immaculate.

We had a lakeside pitch which was a great size.

Some noise from the A1 but it wasn't too noticeable.

A great site, and we will certainly return.

 We had a lake view pitch and what a wonderful view we had every day. The fishing was fantastic. Caught lots of carp, barble, tench, carp double figures.

The toilets and showers are clean, well maintained, no complaints (better than home)

Absolultly brilliant for dogs, they are welcome around the pond, have a walk way around the site with bins to dispose of dog waste. The owners and co workers are really friendly and make you feel at home.

We will definitely come back!

 Just spent a couple of nights here last minute booking. Wasn't sure what to expect following mixed reviews on this site, but I can certainly say don't believe everything you read.

Was so happy that we booked this beautiful site site in a slightly rural location, but literally minutes from the A1 at grantham. The roads leading to the entrance to the park are single lane and to be honest a little scary if two vans were to meet head on.

The site has two lakes the first lake is small with an adults only section - fantastic. The second lake is for the rest of the park which services lodges and touring pitches though I think that there were a few seasonal there as well.

The grounds were well kept. The dogs were well catered for too, with a lovely scenic walk around the perimeter of the park. We were not on site for long enough to discover other walking areas, though Belton house nearby has plenty of walks for all.

Site facilities were adequate - no urinals in the male toilets showers were clean and adequate - don't know if they would cope peak season? 3 toilet blocks serviced the site. A small old shed like toilet for the adults only section, the main toilet block serviced a central location and a third bathrooms ( shower and toilet rooms) serviced the far side of the site.

Wifi was extortionately priced- get a wifi dongle if you need wifi. Satellite reception was good - didn't use the normal tv.

Pitches were a good size, ample space for awning and car. A slight bit of road noise from the A1 and the odd train passing by, but nothing that would stop me returning to this wonderful little gem of a site.

For me 45 minutes door to door and peace quiet and a little haven of wildlife and relaxation.

 Just got back from this well maintained site. These are the good points

Touring pitches are big, main toilet block is very clean and the showers

Are free and hot and heated, Sandra is polite and helpful. The adult part

Has also got big pitches and if your lucky you can pitch up right on the lake

Now the bad points. No urinals in the toilet block, slight sewerage smell in

The block, fishing rules are a bit to strict on what you can use to feed, no

Play area for small children, you have to use there landing net and mat

But no dipping tank, it is noisy during the day as the farmer near by uses

Gas canisters to get rid of the birds in the fields

The approach to the site is narrow so take your time

 We stayed 10 days with the intention of checking the site for future fishing breaks. The hardstanding pitch was large but the ground was extremely hard, bending 4 rock pegs in the process of putting up a porch awning. The restrictions on the baits and methods allowed for fishing made it a bit 'challenging' to say the least. Due to the large number of ducks and geese, care had to be taken when walking on the grass - a tad messy in places. The shower block was clean but there were no urinals in the gents and no lids on the toilets. The showers themselves were set at a fixed temperature - fine if you like it red hot but my wife and I found it too uncomfortable to remain in the main flow. There was no place inside the shower cubicle to put anything down other than hanging from a hook or on the floor. The lack of shower curtains meant that care had to be taken when trying to keep your clothes etc dry. There were also no waste bins in the shower block for discarded shampoo sachets etc.

Once on site, the nearest place to get a newspaper is the garage on the A1. There is a Sainsburys in Grantham with cheap petrol. Pay a visit to Downtown (3 miles south on the A1) for retail threapy plus a huge garden centre.

 Second time we've stopped on this site. Great walks for your dogs and kids. Good size on site dog walk looking over the site. Things what we didn't like about this site Shed ( toilet and shower) need to be changed urgent it's very tired now. New shower block is beautiful job well done on that. Warden She's pleasant greets you ok, second warden he is arrogant he needs to get some people skills.

Reviewer: Lesnorman 22 reviews from this member

 This is a very delightful caravan site, easily overlooked as you go up and down the A1 but well worth a visit. You are sited on spacious hardstanding pitches facing one of two fishing lakes. The views are very green and soothing. It is quiet. The entire site is immaculate and all the very modern facilities are kept spotless day and night. NT Belton House is very close by and well worth a visit. Approaching from the south you have to choose your moment and cross the A1 so take care. You then have a fairly narrow lane to reach the actual lakeside site but it is all very easy. If you like fishing this must be a gem of a location. We were impressed.

Reviewer: Ukdrifter 5 reviews from this member

 Per-leese, the reviews previously are too flowery. The main toilet block heating is on a time switch, and the male side smelt of sewerage and smelly drains. The shower cubicles are cramped, and no control over water temp with fixed heads. Timing though is above most other sites using push button. Would love to meet the geek that introduced the idea, as it does not save water. Pointless attempting to use ancient toilet block, situated in a shed near reception, as shower and hot water heater does not work.

The site seems to cater for seasonal pitches, and those interested in fishing. Ideal stop off when using A1, but would suggest Milestone AS offers a better deal, and easier access. Unless you are into fishing, do not consider a long stay period. Have to say, not up to the normal standard of Caravan Club Sites, which offer heated toilet blocks 24/7, and service points that this site is sadly lacking. Will not use again, but prefer Milestone when using the manic A1.

 We visited this site last year, although the site is just off the A1 there is no problem at all with traffic noise, the site has an superb toilet an shower block, fishing is available on site at an extra cost, the site is within 1. 5 mile of the large DOWNTON/BOUNDRY MILLS shopping site near Gonerby Moor, From the A1 north just after Foston there is a petrol station, turn LEFT into Toll Bar Road then Right onto Green Lane, the site signposted on the Right. From the south take the exit to Foston and then A1 south and follow the instructions above.
