 We liked the peacefulness even though it was fully booked. Booked hardstanding but got grass pitch ( same price) but ground was dry so not bothered ( this occasion).

Toilets very clean. Good bus service right at entrance. Stayed here few times now and will again. 20 deposit for toilet key refundable on leaving. Showers toasty warm.

No shop although currently building new entertainment block. Didn't have children with us so can't comment hence score.

 Very safe. Plenty of space between units. Clean tidy area. Never used the toilet and shower block so can't say how they were.

Only niggle the fresh water tap. The grate underneath was for your waste water. Would prefer a separate fresh water tap away from waste grate.

A couple of seats around the pond would be nice.

 A nice site but basic. Clean lovely toilets.

Unfortunately other campers left dog dirt outside their motor home & dove off.

A nice walk into Withernsea.

It has a clubhouse but didn't use it.

 On arrival we were met by the warden who was very nice and showed us to our pitch. Pitch was a large concrete slab (looked like a static van had previously been sited on it) next to the road with hardly any grass to pitch an awning.

I asked to be moved as we had 2 dog's with us and so near the road was dangerous. We were moved to a middle pitch. Site is a bit tatty and tired.

The pub on site very grotty. No facilities for dog's but we were charged 1 for each one. Makes a mockery when a family behind us had paid for 1 pitch but there were 7 of them squeezed into 1 caravan and also sleeping in the awning. Bet they were not charged extra.

On a plus side the toilets and showers were very nice.

 We stayed there for the Easter Bank Holiday myself, wife and two grandkids aged 6, 11

On arrival we were met by the warden and his wife who we found very friendly as they guided us to the pitch and helped us into position.

The pitch was grass and at the back of the toilet block in a small area with two other adjacent pitches around the statics area.

The pitches were all quite level and ample room, but we were told not to park on the grass due to having a lot of rain recently although not too far away from the pitch.

The area was quite flat and tidy with a large grass area and an ample playground for the kids.

A few people on previous posts had complained about the toilet/shower block, but it is now completely refurbished and like new fully tiled. You can have nice walk round the site and feed the ducks around the fishing lake.

A pleasant flat walk of around a mile and you are in the town centre, a little closer to the beach.

There is a large Tesco nearby which is very handy.

A big plus for us was the Pavillion Leisure Centre which is in the town centre and has a great swimming baths with slide and never got too full. 15. 50 for a family of 4 FOR 3 SESSIONS and can be used up to September. That, s just over 1 /person/session

Great value, we spent 3 hours there one rainy windy day.

All in all we enjoyed our stay despite the weather and would definitely go again.

 We stayed here in a motorhome for one night.

Location- The site is a mile from Withernsea with nothing much nearby.

The cost was 20, including a 1 charge for the dog which was strange as I saw no facilities for the dog such as a dog walk.

Pitch was where a static caravan had previously been. We had to be careful not to trip over the fixing points in the base.

The site was mainly statics (most empty as mid week) and only one touring caravan/MH.

Showers were poor. It was an overcast late afternoon as I went for a shower but I couldn't find a light switch, I can only assume they are on a sensor (that needs adjusting. I went in the first shower and simply could not see. I moved to the shower nearest the window where the remaining daylight came in. The flow from the shower was poor and far too cold for my liking. I am forgiving on busy sites when all the hot water has been used up, but that was not the case here. The thermostat needs adjusting as well as said light sensor.

The wife was also not impressed by here shower saying that it took ages to rinse her long hair.

We had to pay a 20 deposit for the toilet/shower key and fob. I'm not sure why the toilets are locked in the first place as the site is not nearby to anything?

The warden was a very nice friendly chap, so I was surprised when I asked what the latest we could leave he said 10. 30 to 11 am. He added that if we stayed after it would be an additional 8. He had the 20 cash deposit for the all important toilet key, so who was I to argue?

Rules are rules, but in my experience of other sites, if they are almost empty and midweek they often say go when your ready, sadly not the case here.

As the minutes ticked down to 11 am I hurriedly emptied my toilet cassette into the disposal point. It was partly blocked and a fellow camper told me it had been like that all week.

We never did venture in to the club, but can confirm that the no shorts rule after 8 pm is still in force. For clarification that's shorts as in trousers, not shorts as in whisky.

 Stayed at the Willows from 25/05/14 to the 28/05/14, booked a touring pitch & traveled as a family of 2 adults, 1 child & a dog.

Upon arrival at Willows we were met by a the site wardens who explained the site layout to us, & a couple of little rules & regulations, e. G. Dogs must be kept on leads at all times etc. As you would on any site. We were given a key to use the barrier at night to get in & out of Willows in which we had to leave a 20 deposit which you get back when departing from your stay. I would like to say that the wardens made us feel very welcome throughout our stay.

Toilet & shower blocks:

From the outside they look half decent, however once you step inside it is like going back in time to the 1970's. Yes they were clean as best as is possible but due to their age and decor they are really only fit for demolition. Bright orange sinks (obviously out of avocado) too dark to shower, mirrors that your granny would have in her hallway. Compared to other sites they were dire. But as already mentioned cleaned as best as possible with the reassuring bleach aroma!

Club house:

On the plus side the barman was very friendly, welcoming and entertaining. That's the plus side over and done with!

Understandably all such establishments have house rules. But is it really necessary for a British seaside campsite to have a no shorts after 8pm rule. Incidentally the 8pm is the evening opening time which is a little on the late side but that is just in my opinion. Also no children are allowed in the main bar area. More on that later. So a family room is provided. This 'family room' resembled a 1970's graveyard of mismatched furniture (yes the 70's again. Pattern forming eh) whilst clean it all should be considered for bonfire night. The attached amusement room whilst not lit or showing any signs of life had a collection of dated games machines. Didn't check if operated by decimal coins or not!

Now for the main bar area. It was a strange combination of a 1970's (again) working men's or women's club and the set of the TV show the comedians. And empty(ish).

The Willows is so frustrating. Such positives i. E. The grounds with the beautiful lawns and relaxing duck/fishing pond, although some new flags and holes for the pitch and putt wouldn't go amiss, the friendly and soon to be departing Wardens who couldn't do enough. Versus the time warp of the facilities. Please invest, upgrade and get ready to welcome back returning guests. We would love to return, just not in its present form.

 Met by the site wardens, both very welcoming and helpful, we were shown to the pitch and had all necessaries explained. The site is very clean and tidy and the pitches spacious and fairly level. There is a decent recreation area for the kids. The shower block was again very clean and tidy if a little outdated and the showers themselves were adequate.

We were on foot for most of the week and it was a short and pleasant stroll to the beach (15 mins) and just a little further to the town along the promenade ( another 15 mins)

There is a Tesco within easy walking distance and an Aldi in the town, we sampled an excellent fish supper from a fish shop in town and also a lovely Chinese takeaway. The warden told us that the local pizzeria would deliver to the site too.

We didn't visit the club but it looked pleasant enough and daughter enjoyed feeding the ducks at the fishing pool.

Would definitely book to stay here again
