Reviewer: Beckett-family 3 reviews from this member

Our camping tends to be with other members of the family in 2 or 3 tents, none of which are small. We were allocated 3 pitches on Cedar and all were of such a large size that we had loads of room between our tents where we could gather together to play games or eat.

We were close to 2 toilet/shower blocks both with pot washing and cannot fault either of them. The hot water was just that 'Hot' unlike some sites where it barely gets above warm. I'm not too worried about that for a shower but its nice to be able to get your pots and pans clean after the camping fry-up breakfast. They were also very clean with mops in them for you to clear up after your shower but I am sure that they are cleaned regularly during the day.

The staff are very friendly and are constantly seen around the site including a patrol late at night to just check everyone is being courteous and respecting the noise curfew which to be fair everyone does.

I must also make a comment on the state of the pitches we were allocated. After all the rain over the last couple of months I must admit to being a bit worried about what state the ground would be in. Yes there were a couple of wear spots on each pitch where tents had been pitched but no more that you would expect even in good weather.

The ground was well drained, our tent pegs were easily pushed into the ground with hardly any stones and the grass was cut and nice and green. You could tell the ground was still quite damp as you could start to see the grass wear at the entrance to the tents from all the traffic of people going in and out but I doubt this would have gotten much worse had we been staying longer.

In summary a lovely site that I have already recommended to others and would visit again.

Oh my gosh, what a lovely little site! We stayed for three nights, and we were blessed with glorious weather! The site was clean, well maintained. The showers had an endless supply of hot water. The shop was great for forgotten items, and ice creams for the kids. There is a lovely little stream running through the site which was great for cooling off and safe enough for the kids to play in. We will definitely be going again and have no hesitation in recommending this site!

Reviewer: Jan/phil+holly 25 reviews from this member

Yet again another short stay [3nts] at this fantastic site. Chose a lakeside pitch on Lime [33] only just able to get our Invader 800 on but with approval of wardens was ok.

Mostly very peaceful location other than the dawn chorus which includes peacocks [screaming] but by 7. 30am all quiet again.

As on all other visits all facilities were clean and tidy and all staff very pleasant with a friendly nod and a wave as they go about their duties through the day and evening. Will be returning again soon.

Spent 3 nights at this site. Had a great time, its very clean and the staff are nice. We were on Hawthorne the tent field, which although not that close to shop/reception and dishwashing was good.

I was slightly nervous of having portaloos but they were cleaned at least three times a day and didn't smell at all, although it would be nice to have some permanent facilities on that field.

The campsite is well placed for the sherwood forest visitor centre and there is a fab little miniature train down the road, we also did the huge car boot in the field near by on Sunday.

Try the Dog and duck for food, fantastic decoration and they let us take the dog in.

Just returned from a weekend getaway at this site, our unit is a tent and even with the awful weather that there has been I cannot fault the site at all.

The site is only 45 mins away from us in Notts but we could have been in a completely different part of the country apart from the accents of the staff giving it away.

The site has lots of character and is not just a bunch of fields to pitch in, it is set in a beautiful wooded area with a pond and shallow river and is very well kept.

The site has a small reception and shop which is fantastic for gear, but will just get you by for rations.

The toilets and showers were always kept clean and were of a pretty high standard, the showers themselves were free and hot, they work like a swimming bath shower where you have to keep pressing the button for the water to flow, the wife said it was a bit of a bind keep having to press the button every 15-20 seconds when you are trying to rinse your hair etc, but to me this was no problem whatsoever.

On arrival the layout of the site was explained to us and where our pitch was, on nearing our pitch we were met by a ranger who directed to the exact spot and then explained where all the facilities were, considering the rain we have had the pitch was well drained and by no means a mud bath, it was just big enough to accommodate our Monty 6 and car although larger pitches are available.

The staff were always very pleasant, polite and friendly, even when on their rounds the rangers quite rightly asked us to turn our ipod down although not loud it was 11:00pm

The site was great for the kids we have 2 boys age 8 & 11 they made friends straight away and were off exploring, feeding the ducks playing on a rope swing somewhere in the park and generally having a great time.

There are plenty of things to do around the area we visited the major oak and sherwood pines, more adventure for the boys.

In all this is great site with great staff and on our visit nice guests, I would definitely recommend this site and it is a certainty we will be returning

I visited this site with my five year old son. I was a bit nervous about camping on my own with my child, but the lady I spoke to on the phone was very helpful and reassuring, and placed me close, but not too close, to other tents. On arrival I was greeted at reception where a male member of staff showed me to my pitch. He again reassured me that any noise or disturbance on the site would not be tolerated and that he would be patrolling at night (which gave me peace of mind).

The weather was truly awful, but there is so much to do locally that we still had a fab break. The site was really clean, there were portaloos on the field I was in and it was only a three-minute walk to the main reception area (with nice, clean, free, warm showers and washers/dryers that were very reasonably priced and open 24 hours a day - much to my relief on getting back late from a day out with soaking wet clothes, shoes and coats!).

There is a children's play area but it was so wet and our stay so short that we didn't have time to check it out. We did get to feed the ducks though!

The staff were helpful and pleasant throughout and my son and I really enjoyed our stay. We'll be returning!

Reviewer: Queen71 3 reviews from this member

We have many friends that have used this campsite on a regular basis so we finally decided to give it a go. We were lucky to pick a fantastic weekend weather wise, which added to fantastic weekend overall.

On arrival we were shown to our pitch and the warden stayed with us until we were happy with understanding the area. We were in the Cedar area directly in front of the park which was great for the children but we were worried about the noise this might cause.

The noise restrictions were quite clear on the booking sheet but usually these are ignored by most campers. Very surprised that by 10. 30pm everyone was back at their own pitches and the noise levels were not a worry at all.

Unfortunately some parents did allow their older children onto the under 8 play area which we then discovered the following day the park had been damaged. The owner was made aware and he was straight down to make the area safe.

Couldn't fault the toilet block, always clean and plenty of hot water and although we didn't use the pot washing area this also looked very clean.

The campsite overall was great for our children and especially the little stream with its clear water and sandy bed which made it wonderful to paddle in. Don't forget to take swimwear because even though there isn't a swimming pool the kids will play for hours in the streams.

We have booked to go back again with friends and fingers crossed we get the weather to go with it!

Reviewer: Bramley-apple 6 reviews from this member

This is a very good site. Upon arrival we were shown to our pitch by one of the wardens. Then 3 other wardens arrived at the pitch and proceeded to manoeuvre our caravan onto into place for us. This was a real help because it was only our second trip out!

Facilities were warm and always spotless, despite the bad weather.

The on site shop is a real find - an Aladdins cave of all manner of equipment at really unbeatable prices.

Good play area for the children.

Sherwood Pines is good for a visit as is the Sherwood Forest miniature railway, just up the road.

A weekend booking is from 12pm Friday until 7pm Sunday so really good value for money - no getting up and then having to dash off home on the Sunday morning.

We really like this site and hope to be back soon.

Just a quick review to let people know how lovely this site is.

Good for dogs, enough walks round the site and then loads in sherwood pines about a mile way.

Great for kids, we stayed in cedar area.

Facilities never full even though the whole site was full, showers always warm and so were the whole shower blocks. Even though we used one of the older books the floor was still ok under foot, warm enough. Always clean.

Wardens extremely helpful

We booked another visit before we left we we so impressed.

Oh my goodness what a fantastic site! Mainly statics or tourers that have became permanent fixtures but I can see why! Lovely warm welcome on arrival, staff very friendly and gave good clear directions to our pitch. Met at the pitch by another member of staff who assisted with getting hooked up (Also had Digital TV arial hook up). Toilet and shower facilities in good clean working order, very clean and well maintained site. Loved the peacocks that wonder the site as well as lots of other wildlife. Lovely private pitches (3m distance all round)edged with Laurel bushes. Handy for the two fishing lakes, we even walked to the Great Oak at Sherwood forest (4. 5 miles and very sore feet later) but well worth it. We will be returning to this site in the future.
