 Having read the reviews on this site, we chose Petwood for our first foray in our caravan. We were not disappointed.

We didn't start well. Last arrivals are supposed to be at 7pm but we arrived at 8. No problem, we had a friendly welcome and completed the arrival process in the morning.

The facilities are spotless. Toilets, showers and washing up rooms were in modern, clean blocks. Hot water was plentiful and delivered at good pressure. Washing up bowls and drainers were provided and every sink had its own J cloth for wiping up after yourself. Thoughtful and helps keep things clean.

The surrounding area is good for families. Kinema in the Woods is superb and the swimming pool excellent. Both are close enough to walk with the swimming pool 2 minutes from the gate.

We had a hard standing pitch. Water and electric were close at hand and the post illuminated. Pitches are gravel and flat but it was tight getting the van on with the car and pushing was very hard work!

If all the sites we visit are this good we will be happy!

 In a word - Excellent!

This campsite is the best we've stayed at so far in our camping life. It has just about everything for everyone and caters to every need - as far as we are concerned!

* Excellent clean facilities - shower/toilet blocks are regularly cleaned & maintained, there's always hot water (no extra charge), centrally heated when necessary and we've never had to queue.

* Superb range of facilities - hot showers, clean toilets, washing up room, laundry room (small charge to use machines), chemical disposal, recycling, dog exercise area, kids play field and a well-stocked shop with plenty of leaflets regarding the local area.

* Astoundingly large pitches! We easily fit our 8m x 4m tent, windbreak, 2 cars and even have room to spare!

* Great value for money - no 'hidden' extras (see site for current prices)

* Perfect location - great for all that Woodhall Spa and the surrounding area has to offer, for the whole family. We love the Kinema in the woods, the Jubilee pool (within walking distance), excellent cycle routes that are fully tarmacked, local BBMF visitor centre, Tattershall castle, the beach and so much more!

* And last but by no means least, the fantastic customer service you receive from the moment you arrive to the moment you leave. Chris, Dane & the team couldn't be more accommodating.

It is not within the woods so there are no mature trees on site. We like this as there is less risk of being bitten or having sap attack your tent! It also means that you get full advantage of any good weather (although a parasol in hot sun would be helpful) and you get to enjoy the beautiful sunsets.

We have just had a wonderful long weekend here and have already booked for another 3 weeks in total this year! Even though we're local (we live 35 miles away), it is the perfect escape from the hectic daily routine and we are counting the sleeps until we come again.

 I rarely go overboasrd with reviews, but I have to say that this site was almost certainly the best we have ever stayed on with our caravan.

Loos and showers spotless, hand sanitizer by the chemical closets, nice mixture of grass and hard-standing, spacious pitches, genuinely helpful and dedicated management, I couldn't find fault with anything (and I'm a pretty grumpy sod usually!)

The town of Woodhall Spa is a 10 minute walk with all the services one usually needs, pub, restaurants, takeaway and a coffee shop with fast wi-fi (there's none at the Petwood site, my only minor criticism).

WS also has a hardware store, Budgens, Co-Op, petrol station etc etc.

All in all, thoroughly recommended, esp if you like cycling, it's as flat as a pancake for MILES around and there's a cycle path converted from a disused railway, which runs within 1. 4 miles of the caravan site; the path goes from Lincoln to Boston with pubs and shops alog the way - delightful.

Petwood Park was definitely a winner for us. We'll be back!

 Had a lovely long weekend at petwood camp. The facilities are excellent and the staff extremely friendly.

We have a large tent and the pitch was more than big enough. The toilet and shower blocks are spotless and I couldn't find fault with them if I wanted too.

The small town is very nice with some great shops. Would recommend the deli, it's amazing. Shops are within very easy walk of the campsite.

All together a great place and would stay again.

One tiny thing if you are going; the sign from the main road is small and not easy to see so be aware.

 Petwood has all the facilities you need, a lovely location, well maintained pitches and beautiful showers/wash rooms and toilet blocks.

Even though the weather was against us we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the staff were fantastic and very helpful.

Lots to do around the area and next door to another park with swimming pool that Petwood have discounted swims for their customers.

We would definitely visit again. Thank you to all the staff for a great enjoyable stay.

 This caravan site is great ! The wardens Dane, Chris and June are so helpful and can't do enough for you and are friendly and welcoming!

The facilities are always spotless, warm and smell lovely.

The caravan site is kept neat and tidy in every way. The shop has all your basic essentials, but Woodhall village is only a short walk for everything else

Even in the recent adverse weather they have done everything they could to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

The surrounding area is lovely from the open air pool to the Kinema in the woods this village is worth a visit.

Reviewer: Chambersclan 3 reviews from this member

 We have just returned from a long weekend at the Petwood. What a wonderful site. We were greeted with an extremely friendly welcome, the Wardens could not have been more helpful.

Our pitch was vast, our tent isn't small by any means so even with the car parked conveniently near the tent we still had loads of room around us for the girls to run around.

The best thing about the site are the facilities. Spotless doesn't come close. Absolutely wonderful in every way. The site was quite busy but the toilets and showers were always clean. Lots of hot water and nice that the rooms were heated so you didn't feel cold when getting dressed. Something the children really appreciate.

Great location, we went to the Kinema in the Woods which is literally across the road. Only a short walk. If you have never been it's a must do. Very unique. The Jubilee Park with it's newly refurbished Outdoor pool was very handy, both our girls love swimming. It's minutes from the camp site.

The deli and bakery in the village is amazing, my Wife could spend all day in there! And we would highly recommend The Mall Public House on the high street. Great food (using fresh local ingredients!) with children made to feel very welcome.

All in all a great weekend away and we cant wait to return.

 This site is excellent. Very clean and tidy, well set out. The toilets and showers are particularly clean and tidy. Members of Camping and Caravanning Club are given a 2 discount per night - brilliant value for money. There is more than enough information on the local area available at reception, especially if you have a dog. There is a little 'shop' for the basics on site. Maybe my only gripe is too much gravel around the pitches, trying to walk quietly around the other campers at night or early morning is impossible.

The walk into Woodhall Spa is not far. The Mall Public House is very good and dog-friendly. The Tea-shop in the woods is also an Italian style restaurant which looks good for a one-off treat (you can sit out on the covered verandah with dogs). The Silk Orchid (Oriental restaurant/takeaway) is excellent - try Sea on Fire, yum yum. The bakery is a must. There are shops for grocery top-ups, etc. We visited the Petwood Hotel across the road from the site and were amazed to find that they allow dogs in. This place is really worth a visit. Go and see Christine at the Cottage Museum and Tourist Information Office, she is so helpful and friendly.

If you enjoy walking there is a really good, flat but long walk into Horncastle through the golf-course and along the old railway line on the Viking Way. Good day out with nature.

We will be returning to this area many times because it has so much to offer and the site is perfect.

 We found this campsite by pure luck after deciding not to stay at the campsite we had originally booked for our holiday. The staff were really nice and very helpful.

I have to say this is the best campsite me or my family have ever stayed at, and some of our party had been camping for over 40 years!

The facilities were superb, clean and with everything thought of. If possible an addition of a wash cubicle would be nice - but that is being really quite picky of an amazing site. My son is 2 and loved the freedom of the open site, but we were relaxed as it was so safe for him to run and play. Really nice to go to a site that allowed ball games and children to bike around. The facilities at Jubilee Park nextdoor were ideal with a swimming pool, and play park.

Woodhall Spa is a beautiful village with everything you need a great range of independant shops, and if you take a bike then really you can park your car up for the hols!

Highly recommend the cake shop - the challenge is to get past the window!

The museum in the village was very interesting and the member of staff here was brilliant. We got caught in the worst storm ever - power cut and 4+ inches of rain, and he was most concerned for everyone getting back safely.

There is a cinema but we didn't get there - only due to having a little one.

We went to the area purely to go to the Lincolnshire Aviation Museum - a fantastic day out and well worth a visit. The three boys in our group (ages 64, 40 & 2) didn't want to go home!

We also visited the Thorpe Camp which had so much to see, and were lucky enough to see the Lancaster take off and then fly over us.

My family are not plane enthusiasts but still found the history of this remarkable area fascinating.

We also popped to Horncastle which again has a good range of independent shops.

We had a fantastic holiday here - only cut short by the before mentioned storm which flooded our awning, and we can't wait to go back again next year! So glad that we found this gem and happy to spread the word!

 We have stayed at the Petwood before and had been impressed enough to return for a second visit.

It is a lovely, quiet site (a few small family groups on an evening and children playing was the most we heard) with modern clean facilities. The toilet blocks are warm, clean and smell nice! Because the site is quite small, they are only a minute away from every pitch. There were about 5 cubicles and sinks and 2 showers with a small separate changing area. In reference to the previous review; there are 2 blocks so 4 male and 4 female showers in total. The laundry and indoor pot wash are great. We were also told that we could use the separate, large disabled toilet and shower for our two young children.

The pitches are level and a good size, even on the bank holiday weekend we didn't feel too cramped. The on-site wardens are always available and very friendly. The site has a small shop and there was also a catering van on the mornings we were there. The dog walking area is a fenced field where you can let your dog off if you wish - ideal for us.

There are no other facilities on site but there is an open air pool, playground and tennis courts on the neighbouring Jubilee site. (half price tickets for the pool are available from reception) Woodhall Spa is a lovely village with little shops, a co-op, a deli, take-aways, restaurants and several pubs. There is also a Kinema in the woods; an ideal way to spend a wet afternoon.

Overall if you like a quiet, clean, safe site the Petwood is a good choice. (its an ideal choice for anybody new to camping who is dreading using campsite bathrooms!) Good value at 23. 50 for a pitch with EHU.
