Reviewer: Sparker97 1 review from this member

 We visited for 2 nights for a break away and booked into the birdshed, which as it states is very small however we were well aware the amount of room we would have prior to arrival - I would recommend people taking this into consideration before booking, however like I said we were fully prepared for the size of the shed so had no surprises upon arrival.

Heather and her husband are absolutely lovely and couldn't accommodate us enough, we saw them daily around the site and they were very welcoming, they allowed us to use a communal fridge to store any fridge items as the birdshed doesn't have a suitable fridge.

This campsite is an absolute gem for if you want to go away and do absolutely nothing, its peaceful and we enjoyed sitting by the lake and watching the anglers.

The only recommendation I would make which is very minor is an upgrade on the cutlery provided in the birdshed! However this is minor and by no means ruined our trip.

We are looking forward to returning and trying out the other camping pods situated upon the site! Lastly the highlight of our stay was watching the 2 ducklings running around with their surrogate chicken mumma which was the cutest thing ever :)

 Being complete novices at caravanning was a little nervous being the first time out and recently out of the Covid lockdown, this site was an excellent choice,

The pitches are large and easy to manoeuvre onto, Heather and Martin are very approachable and friendly,

The site is very peaceful, well looked after with a beautiful pond and spotless shower block.

Burton is a lovely village with two pubs ( in non Covid times) a shop, takeaway, a great children’s park and some lovely walks along the hills and to the wonderful Normanby Park.

We will definitely return.

 We stayed a night in the glamping pod at Acorn Wood, it was a first for us an a fantastic experience.

The pod is beautifully designed, very comfortable and considering the cold weather we were kept snuggly. Everything has been well thought out with a fridge, toaster, kettle and microwave alongside seating inside and out. A comfy fold up bed is your sofa for daytime.

The site is a wonderful oasis of calm, close to the village amenities with lots to do and see in the area. I would highly recommend this place.

The owners are very friendly and welcoming.

 Brilliant site lovely owners, nice and quiet.

The pond is great for fishing, plenty of good fish to catch and a lovely area to sit and relax at the cabin or on the grass hill.

This is a great place to go we go all the time and its our little paradise

 What can I say, a wonderful site with lovely hosts. Had a couple of good fishing sessions caught plenty of small carp.

The glorious weather has helped. Heather came round and gave everyone on site an Easter gift as did the lady in the caravan next door.

Excellent facilities for a small site, we shall be back.

 Just arrived home from acorn woods after a 12day stay. The high winds made the trip home was very interesting. Site was clean and tidy

Toilet was spotless

Fishing was good, the first day I must of had over 30carp plus bream, it just got better as the days went on

The only issue I had was the ducks on site, over 30 ducks made fishing hard at times, made using some baits a no go.

 A very quiet site, though larger than our last visit April 2012. On a grass pitch this time; ground was soft due to recent heavy rain & snow, so got muddy where car tracks were.
Small toilet block consists of washing up sink & drainer directly opposite the door, complete with washing up liquid, bowl & sponge/j cloth to use.

On the window sill is a rack of tourist /takeaway leaflets & at either side is a unisex shower room with shower cubicle, toilet, sink & radiator. Just like being at home! Clean & well maintained too. No laundry facilities but for a weekend break that’s not a problem.

There is a path through the woods to a fishing lake & a lovely cabin with free tea/coffee (milk in the fridge) & comfy chairs, with plenty of magazines, books too, which can be swapped.

The owners, Martin & Heather, were very friendly & helpful.

Martin kindly drove the car onto our pitch & reversed the caravan into position & on Easter Sunday, Heather brought us 2 gift boxes containing cupcakes! Marvellous!

The caravanners on the next pitch also brought us 2 little chick gift boxes containing a chocolate egg each on Easter Sunday, and when we were ready to depart on Monday, used their 4 x 4 to tow our caravan off our waterlogged & muddy pitch –so kind!

A lovely site which we hope to revisit – just hoping for better weather!

 A small but perfect site, plenty of room around our pitch and all the amenities we needed. Heather was wonderful so friendly and helpful.

There is a fishing pond at the bottom of the site that has a great log cabin decked out with chairs, tea and coffee making gear, books, mags and games.

In the village which is probably a 10/ 15 mins walk is a Chinese takeaway, a convenience store and the Sheffield Arms pub. Although the weather was atrocious for our short stay we vowed to return and explore the area in drier weather.

The afternoon we spent in the Pub couldn't have been with friendlier people. Its a gem.

 Just spent the Christmas period here. First time we have been away in caravan over Christmas. Absolutely loved every minute of it. Will be doing it every year from now on.

Heather and martin made it all so special too.

Showers and toilets were lovely and warm and spotlessly clean as usual. Even put Christmas decos up which was a lovely touch. Such lovely host. Looking forward to going back in summer.

Such a hidden gem. Thank you Heather and martin for making our stay lovely and for our card and gift. Happy New year to you both.
