Date of Visit: March 2011 Unit:  Motorhome
Reviewer: Chontelle 2 reviews from this member

 Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, lovely quiet little site just a short walk from the village. The Sheffield Arms is a welcoming pub and allows dogs.

The site is very tidy and toilet and showers are immaculate, plenty of hot water.

A very pretty little lake with a fishermans lodge with tea/ coffee making facilities and tables and chairs around the lake. My husband fished a couple of days and for the time of year it was good sport.

Heather and Martin are very helpful and friendly and we look forward to returning again.

 Having just returned from a long weekend visit I waste no time in leaving this review!

We were 2 adults, 1 child and a dog. X3 Nights.

Cost: £12.00 per night with EHU.

From the booking to arrival, the stay and departure, Heather was a pleasure to deal with and meet.

This site now has hardstandings (not present in the pictures on here). The whole site is lovely and it easy to see that although a business, this is a labour of love for the owners- It really shows in the care and attention given to the site.

Facilities: excellent

The Amenities Block: Consists of x2 Self contained shower rooms inclusive of lavatory and wash basin. These are either side on entry to the dishwash area. And the showers are free!

Although small in quantity they are lovely quality. Hot, powerful showers, central heating- Clean and tidy always!

The Pond & Log Cabin:

Although my husband didn't fish, he will do when we visit again. The pond, although not huge is very picturesque with seating sited around it. The cabin has a beautiful veranda overlooking the pond with outdoor seating and tables. Inside are books, information and a sofa and chairs with a table. Very welcoming and cosy.

In fact, this is where our 13 year old son disappeared to having found a good book!

We sampled the Chinese Takeaway in the village one evening. The food was pretty good but it seemed to be a meeting point inside for the local kids.

There are plenty of supermarkets within easy reach as you are around 4-5 miles from Scunthorpe. There is a Tesco Extra, Morrisons, Sainsburys and Asda.


This site is a little gem and we thoroughly enjoyed everything about it. Despite being relatively local to the area it is somewhere that we are looking forward to returning to for long weekends of rest and relaxation.

NOTE: NO ball games, frisbees etc. Are permitted so might not be ideal with kids that want to play ball all of the time. This is done as Heather explained, to prevent damage to caravans, motorhomes etc. As it is a small site with no open play areas.

This is not a site to visit if you want clubhouses and entertaining. However, if you can make your own entertainment and enjoy the surroundings then this is definitely one to consider!

Reviewer: Campalots 16 reviews from this member

 Fantastic site despite having heavy rain when we arrived and left, the site drained really quickly. Martin and Heather were perfect hosts really friendly and welcoming, always around if you needed them but never intrusive, the pond is clearly Martin's pride and joy and quite rightly so,

the fishing was great and the cabin overlooking the pond with drinks making facilities, fridge, tv and book and magazines was a really thoughtful addition which makes this site stand out from the rest.

Extremely reasonably priced even with electric hook-up. The two toilets and shower(free) were housed close to pitching with hot water washing up facilities. All in all a great site which we would definitely recommend and will be visiting again.

Also the chinese take away in the village close by was lovely. A little gem of a site.

Reviewer: Michaelw 1 review from this member

 Well kept very tidy site excellent new toilets and showers with washing up area in new purpose built building.Fishing pond and log cabin adjacent to site ideal for the fishers amongst or just for a nice stroll around on a sunny afternoon.Short walk to village with post office / shop, chinese takeaway, excellent new tea room home made cakes and reasonable prices well worth a visit.

Local pub / restaurant the Sheffield Arms good value meals and even offer two for a tenner main course before 6.30pm. Good home cooked food nice people in the pub

Large supermarket very close about 4 miles.

Lots of local attractions not visited just went to chill and we did will definitely visit again,

No children on site when we visited but children welcome.

Reviewer: Ja.sy 2 reviews from this member

 Just back from a weekend break at that site.

The best campsite I've ever been ! And at a very reasonable price too!

Shower clean, with good water pressure.

Site quiet.

Very friendly welcome by owners.

There's electric hookups (but didn't use, so can't comment on that).

Home grown vegetable available to buy.

Village very close to walk to (with a nice pub).

There's area for fishmen, but even though we don't do fishing, it's a very pleasant place to sit.

The only down is that there's only 2 toilet/shower, and sometime had to queue (a extra toilet-only would be good).

We will come again, with no doubt, if staying in the area again.

Reviewer: The warbies 2 reviews from this member

 Lovely site, a real credit to the very friendly, helpful owners. Excellent shower, toilet and wash up facilities, good size and spacious pitches. The private fishing was enjoyed by many of the campers. Lovely lodge with refreshment making facilities, a lovely added touch. Only a 10 min walk into village for news papers or basic requirements,we will try the pub and Chinese takeaway on our next visit which we booked before we left.

Reviewer: Corni 17 reviews from this member

 Just back from 3 days at Acorn Wood and I have to say it's a fantastic little site.

The best thing I can say about this site is I couldn't think of anything I would change on this site.

The price is right.

The site, toilets, showers are spotless,

Electric never goes off,

Fishing is great,

Summer house next to pond with telly,kettle, coffe & tea making facilities, fridge, books, easy chairs, settee, barbie, veranda with table & chairs so you can sit outside and have a barbie.

Ideal for kids & adults to sit & watch telly.

Martin & Heather can't do enough for you, but never get in the way.

There are some great walks along the Trent & Humber.

Alkborough is worth a visit. The views alone at Julians Bower and the Alkboro flats are worth the visit.

Great little site.

Reviewer: DandA Lancs 2 reviews from this member

 My first review and first time at Acorn Wood but I will most certainly be back. We arrived as strangers but soon made friends with owners, Martin and Heather, who gave us a choice of pitch and showed us the shower block (it is spotless and warm).

Even though the site was full at weekend there is plenty of space and never a queue for the two showers or pot washing facilities.

The fishing lake is in a lovely setting with mature trees all around. Seats and benches are provided around the lake with a large fishing lodge at one end that we made good use of, sitting in the sun and watching the wild life. We also managed to catch some carp the best was over 8lbs.

The site is in a good location with plenty of places of interest nearby and Scunthorpe is only a few miles south for any shopping therapy.

This site is a credit to the hard work that Martin and Heather put in. As I said we will be back if you leave us a pitch and donít all rush at once.

Reviewer: Minicabber 1 review from this member

 Iíve got to say from the start that this is the first ever review I have ever done on a campsite as this was the first ever time I have been camping.

If campsites were a lager (as the TV advert goes) then this must have been made by Carlsberg.

Not having any other camping experience I have nothing to judge this site by and I just hope that when I go camping somewhere else that their sites are half as good as this.

I had read reviews about this site and I have to agree with them all Ė this is a little gem.

We arrived at the site and were met by martin who gave us a quick guided tour and showed us to our pitch. We had only been there half and hour and we were laughing along with some other guests.

Because we were complete novices to this and because we didnít arrive on site till nearly six pm it was nearly nine pm by the time we finished setting up tents and getting sorted. Thought I would have slept like a log all night but whether it was excitement or the chirping of the birds I awoke at four thirty the next morning and what a great time of the day. I got up, walked the dog around the site and near the pond, what a fantastic log cabin, where you can make a hot drink and just sit and relax.

The only problem we had was that we were only going to be staying for 2 nights so we had to try and cram in as much as we could.

On our second day there we managed take the dog on a five mile walk around the local area, spend four hours fishing in the sites very own pond. This also happened to be my sonís (10 years old) very first fishing trip which he caught at least a dozen and have a good bbq.

Going back again soon, already booked it.

Fantastic first camping experience.

 Just returned from a short Autumn break at Acorn Wood. This was my 1st visit and all that I can do is to endorse the comments already made about this little gem of a camping / caravan site.
Yes, the brand new toilet block is now finished, as the site is licensed for only five units the toilet block is quite adequate, with two self contained domestic bathroom type rooms, each with a W.C. Shower and sink, centrally heated and very very modern, there is also a pot washing sink included in this building.
The pitches are enormous, there is no question of being close to your neighbour. The site also boasts its own fishing lake, which is the pride and joy of Martin, your host, the lake is well stocked and a very tranquil place to be, there is also a fully equipped wooden chalet overlooking the lake, this chalet has tea and coffee making facilities, and easy chairs as well as the usual outdoor tables and chairs and bar-B-Q facilities.
The owners of the site, Martin and Heather, are amongst the most helpful and genial hosts I have ever met on any campsite, a pleasure to meet and nothing seems too much trouble for them.
The site is in the village of Burton upon Stather, which boasts a Chinese take away, a Pub, a post office and a small convenience store. It is also on a Bus route. Acorn Wood is the place you have dreamt off.
