August 2004
Visited for 4 days on mon 23rd
1st time caravaning for about 16 years, forgot how much fun putting up an awning was!!!!! so when we finally put the poles the right way up!!!!! we realised why groundsheets came into being, it resembled Glastonbury in ours as it did nothing but rain on the 1st day.

This is where you need to take note because if it rains to a degree as it did that day you are re-directed out of the site through the back entrance so to speak and through the village which is all well and good if you can remember it on the way back in the dark!

Staff friendly to a fault no problem with space as we were told to take up two spaces if we wanted, beautiful picturesque site, free hot showers, small on site shop that did a range of camping accessories at prices cheaper than most internet sites, lighting around park could be better (fetch a torch!) go to Ma Hubbards for decent ale and decent food at cheap prices (Some are only 2!!!!)
and don't do what we did (a common practice I'm told) go to Sherwood Forest Pines wrong place altogether instead look for the thetford flag outside the entrance. All The Best. Javi

Excellent Excellent site.

This is our favourite site of all. We are regulars here because of the fact that it is beautiful, clean, tidy, pretty, lovely pitches, quiet, friendly, great for kids and local to where we live!!

If you havent tried it, do so, you will love it.

Lovely, clean well maintained site in a very picturesque setting.
The toilet facilities and showers were clean and warm.
The childrens play areas were much enjoyed by my children (4 & 6).
The staff were very helpful and friendly.

My only minor gripe would be that some of the pitches were very cramped when fully booked, we stayed in 'ceder' (smaller caravans and tents) and there was only a few feet between car and next pitch at side and approx 10ft from pitch facing.

Overall a lovely site.

July/Aug 2004
We spent two nights here with the kids with our tent. The good points are showers / toilets are very clean, the site is tidy, staff friendly. On the downside it's advertised as a family site but there are 'no ball games' signs all over the site, the play area is only for very small children (6 and below), there are no large areas to play with the kids, they allow people to pitch at silly times in the night (we were woken by next door pitching at 1am!). The pitches are too close together (next door's car kept pushing in our pegs!!). The river is nice to play in if you can get to it (caravaners seem to have priority pitching along the bank and do love to fence it off with their windbreaks! - pleasant bunch!). Camp shop has basics, but there is a 24hr Tesco in Ollerton up the road.

It is a nice site but wont be coming back as it's really for older caravaners - no enough to keep kids amused. Rob

Site is flat and sheltered. Plenty of wildlife, especially waterfowl, pheasants and peacocks. The trees were labeled as to their species which I thought was a novel idea and educational for children and adults. The facilities were OK. There is a lot of water so parents of young children would need to be vigilant. I think it's a lovely site and will definitely go again if I am in that area.

We stayed here when we saw Paul weller. What a great site, very pretty with all the wild foul and the river.
We are returning with the kids soon.
The toilets and showeres are very clean and warm. The owners were friendly and helpful.

Just got back from a one night stay, only booked the day before, will be going back for longer next time, site far exceeded our expectations. First time campers so didn't know what to expect, staff friendly and helpful, facilities clean, good experience all round!!

We visited this site in April, and agreed we will not find a better site than this. It's beautiful, peaceful and very picturesque. Unlike some other reviews, we couldn't find a problem with the showers and toilets, any mess is only due to the inconsiderate people using them, and unless there was a cleaner there every minute, the site can't help that.
Staff friendly and helpful, good play areas for kids, good flat pitches. You may be awoken by owls and other birdlife in the forest, but it just adds to the feeling of being back to nature, away from all the stress!
Can't wait to go back, 10 out of 10.

This was our first camping trip and had a bit of a do with the tent but once settled it was great. The site was easy to find and on arrival found the place to be beautiful, little rivers and pleanty of wild life , lots of things for the kids to do including a little cinema and park.
There is a bingo session that also goes off near the provisions shop. The only thing we didn't like was the fact we couldn't get a pitch near the water and this meant that we had to camp on the top field which to us was way too far from the toilets and showers and a little too near the train track, but that wasn't too noisy.
Would defo go again, very family orientated but maybe have a porto potty on hand next time hehe.............

May Bank Holiday 2004
We decided to stay at the campsite as it is very near Sherwood and booked a pitch with no hook-up point the day before. The field was a good few minutes walk to the washrooms, which we were warned about over the telephone.

I found the ladies to be unkempt, and one of the locks was broken. The next day it was cleaned, but very poorly. Overall the staff were friendly, pitching ground slightly stony and it got very windy in the open field. Verdict? We would prefer to stay in a smaller campsite next time, but will miss the beautiful peacocks and pheasants.
