 My family and I spent 8 days here in July. This is most definitely one gem of a site. Spotless well kept and the owners were very friendly and so down to earth. I must say a big thank you to the owner for the time he spent with my grandson, helping him with his first fishing poll.

As has been said before this not a site for small children, only because there is nothing on site for them. At 15 per night you cant beat it, they could charge 20 per night and it would still be a bargain.

Will be back this year if we can, if not we will be there next summer.

All the best,

 I have waited until after our third visit to Acorn Wood before writing a review. The main reason being that when you think you have found the ideal site after 30 years caravanning you need to make sure that you aren't carried away on the tide of emotion.

Acorn Wood is a real gem from large hard standing pitches to the provision of washing up liquid in the superb toilet facilities it is impossible to find fault. Although not a fisherman the lake and summerhouse (with free tea/coffee etc)must be a joy for those who do. The other reviews say it all apart from if you are a churchgoer the Methodist church in the village offer a very warm welcome to visitors.

Heather and Martin are a delightful couple, nothing being too much trouble during your visit and they are also well respected within the local community. We`ll be back!

 What a nice quiet small campsite this is. Stayed here for 4 nights, The toilets and showers are spotless and even better than some hotels I have stayed in. Small fishing lake with a wooden cabin as well. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Had a great stay. Will come back and stay again at this site when am back in the area.

 A wonderfully peaceful, well maintained site with kind and accommodating owners. Spotlessly clean and tidy, spacious pitches, summer house next to the lake, all combined with lovely weather meant we had the best experience. Good local pub at the Sheffield Arms. Only one minor point (and it is very small) is that both toilets are in the shower rooms, so if both showers are in use, things can get a bit urgent! Not much for small children to do, but it clearly states that on the website.

If I could give it more than 10 I would.

Thank you for making my first camping trip so special!

 What a lovely and idyllic site. Just spent the weekend there and loved it. Heather is the friendliest host and the site is maintained to the highest standards and spotlessly clean. The toilet block is looked after with care and has some lovely touches. We had some family over for a BBQ who thought it was beautiful. Its only a few minutes walk to the lovely village of Burton on Stather. The Fishing lake whilst small and shallow is a lovely spot and well worth a few hours fishing as its well stocked. The Fishermans lodge is a lovely touch. Will definitely be going back.

 Finally managed to get booked to Acorn Wood, all last year when we wanted to visit it was fully booked, this time we managed to get booked mid week.

We can fully understand why - it's an excellent site, still spotless from entering the pitching area to the facilities, . The fishing lake is still an attractive area to either enjoy the excellent log cabin with a drink and a book or to watch the anglers having fun.

Thanks again, we are surprised that they have still not managed to control the weather as unfortunately it also went on holiday.

Had a meal in the Sheffield Arms, they let us in the games room as we had the dog, but it's nice to see that you can go in a public house for a meal itch your dog - the food also was excellent, thanks.

All in all an enjoyable mid week break. Still not for younger children but our 2, 1 13. & 1 11 really enjoyed them selves with the younger fishing.

 This was our first visit to this site, it is a 5 to 7 pitch Camping and Caravanning C L site, on arrival we were welcomed by the owner who showed us where our pitch was, which was very spacious, clean and level. The cleanliness of the toilets was second to none, there were 2 very spacious shower rooms, which included toilet, wash hand basin and shower. A stool was provided to sit on so you could dry and get dressed, very useful. In the shower block there was a sink for washing up. The owner also supplied the washing up liquid and tea towel, there were no washing machine or tumble drier, I never use them on sites so that did not bother me.

My husband likes to fish and as you go through the gate to the pond, it was like going into another world, there is a superb log cabin where there is tea and coffee making facilities, tea, coffee and milk supplied by the owners FOC. The log cabin has a leather settee and a cane suite where you can sit have a hot drink on the veranda, there are table and chairs for you to sit and look over the pool at the fisherman, it was so tranquil and sheltered from the elements. On the first day of fishing the owner came to introduce himself to hubby and gave him some pointers on how to fish the pond.

As we have a motorhome and put up an awning we rely on public transport, no worries there, there is a bus stop a few minutes walk which takes you into Scunthorpe where you will find all the usual shops and banks.

There is a small village only a 10 minute walk away, which had a pub, post office chinese take away shop/newsagent. The pub (The Sheffield Arms) served excellent food and reasonably priced and also allowed dogs in the bar, the chinese was also excellent and delivered to the site for 1. 00 on orders 10 or more.

All in all a cracking little site, and we will to back. We were there for 9 nights and quite easily could have stayed longer.

 A brilliant little site. The amenity block is spot on. A pot washing sink separating two toilet/shower rooms that are a delight, and are actually bigger than my bathroom at home!

The site is well set out with hard standing for caravans & small grassy areas for those with tents. A lot of the campers I spoke to while there are regulars so booking in advance is a must if you want to stop here.

Through a gate & along a short wooded path is the fishing pond which is for use of those staying at the campsite. Didn't bring my rod this time but at 5 for a days fishing seems to be excellent value. For those not into fishing there is lodge with verandah situated beside the pond complete with fridge / tea & coffee making facilities together with a small selection of books / magazines for you to browse. Well worth a look if you come here.

Situated right on the edge of the village this site is approximately a 10 minute walk to the local shop / pub / club / Chinese take away. The area has a number of walks, the path to Alkeborough and views across the Trent / Humber / Ouse rivers well worth the walk.

Finally I must mention the site owner who is an absolute treasure! Thank you for an excellent stay and I hope to return some time in the future.

 I am really reluctant to leave a review, not because there is anything wrong with with site, it is just I do not want too many people to book, meaning I might not be able to get booked.

Owners are lovely and friendly cannot do enough for you. Pitches are a great size and hard standing which is a bonus for a motorhome.

There is a small fishing lake which my husband and son fished and caught some really great size carp. As mentioned there is a small lodge beautifully furnished out with tea and coffee provided free of charge.

The toilet block was immaculate with 2 toilets and showers. Really nice little touches such as hand wash and fresh hand towels. This is one site we will definitely be returning to if we are in the area. Tv reception a little weak but who cares when everything else is brilliant. Oh and by the way they also have wifi which was perfectly adequate for what I needed.
