We stayed here just for a 1 night stop over, wished we stayed longer.

Beautifully kept site, neat tidy clean. Toilet and showers clean.

It has a good sized covered washing up area with a fridge and freezer for use.

EHU available, however we tried `off grid`.

Dog friendly too.

For families and Children this site is fabulous, a brilliant BMX track at the top of site kept ours entertained on their bikes. Much football was also played in the spacious field with other children a lovely friendly atmosphere.

Everyone respected the noise control too.

A 5 minute cycle will take you to the White Post Inn where we had a good evening meal.

Close to Sherwood Pines to get you an early start.

We shall be back

This was our first time using this site. We wanted a site not too far away as my daughter, niece and their boy friends were trying camping. I needed three pitches all with electric and Martin the owner was excellent and friendly on the phone. We were placed together with our caravan being placed behind the other pitches with a fence seperating us and a gate to go through, this was ideal for us. The pitches were large with it marked on the fence telling you were to place your car, caravan and awning. I liked that a lot as you don’t always know where you should put your caravan. The toilet and shower are a porta cabin they were basic but very clean. Everyone was friendly the home made curry with rice and Nan bread was very nice and home made cake, chips and smothies you was spoilt for choice no need to cook for the weekend stay as it is a nice short walk to the white post inn for a nice meal. Overall nice and quiet site will be returning for another quick weekend away we’ll done we all really enjoyed it.

Lovely site with loads to do nearby. More formal in layout and pitches at closer quarters than my favourite campsites but our kids ended up making new friends with our neighbour. Great that they allow campfires off ground which is a big tick for us. Our kids (5 & 8) had a great time playing on the bmx track (without a bike!) and there is plenty of space between pitches for playing. Brilliant to have an enclosed area for exercising dogs. Overall friendly owner, clean facilities and very reasonably priced. We had a great time.

Stayed here over new year, pretty much first come first served, so when all hard standing pitches were taken so ended up on wet grass.

Nice well kept site set well back off the road.

Toilets are portacabin style on only one shower in each but also immaculately clean.

We booked at short notice as we were a large group of 7 tents, 6 requiring EHU.

Martin, the owner, was excellent beforehand, and made us feel very welcome throughout.

The site is very relaxed and there is a dog run for dogs and a BMX course to keep the children happy.

The toilet and shower block were quite old, but they were immaculately clean all weekend. They could do with some extra toilets and showers as there is only one per gender.

Highly recommended.

Reviewer: Bonnyrigg 31 reviews from this member

This site is lovely a real gem. We were met by one of the owners who took us to our pitch. Later the second owner Martin introduced himself, they are both lovely and friendly, offering help and local info, if you need it. The toilets are in a port cabin set up, but they are spectacularly clean. Showers cost 20p but I found I needed 40p each time to ensure enough water. There is a one shower room and a toilet room with one toilet and a sink in one cabin. Then there is a toilet and sink in another cabin. The men have a similar set up. The washup area for dishes and the disposal bins etc. , are adequate and kept clean. The only down side is the fact that there is only one shower and there can be a queue, even this early in the season. Overall its a site if we are in the area we will go back. Well done Martin and Partner.

Just back from a 4 night stay.

Great friendly staff. The owners offer: cooked food, fresh eggs, home made cake and are always happy to help.

Lovely manicured site with clean toilets and showers.

Good under cover washing up facilities with use of fridge/freezer if you need them.

Good size pitchers and a great BMX/bike area for the kids. Separate dog walking area.

Only down side they could do with more toilets and showers.

Only one toilet/shower for the men and two toilets and one shower for the ladies.

Hot water is 20p for 2 minutes. We don't mind paying but I found out about this after I had entered the shower. A sign or a quick reminder on arrival would be useful.

You will have a short drive to local shops and pubs. We had a nice meal in The Old Reindeer at Edingley about 10mins in the car. Plenty of walking around the area, Sherwood Forest is 10/15mins away in the car. We also visited Rufford Abbey £3. 00 to park, it has plenty of grounds to walk around and great facilities which include restaurant, cafe, shops and the Abbey to look around.

We would like to thank Martin and his staff for making us feel welcome, you have a great little site.

Lovely site, facilities good. Lovely and clean. Nice and peaceful.

They provide cooked food for you to purchase. Perfect if you cant be bothered to cook. They had curry, rice and nan bread on the menu. Plus desert. And at a reasonale price.

Reviewer: SamandRose 17 reviews from this member

This was our first caravanning weekend of 2017, and we stayed whilst visiting friends in the area.

Let's get the negatives out of the way first, and that means starting with the showers. Yes, they're immaculate and of a good size, and we don't object to paying 20p per X number of minutes of hot water (this is clearly defined, I just can't remember it). However, it would have been nice to have been told, either when we checked in or in the printed list of site rules that the hot water was coin-operated before we headed over there in dressing-gowns the following morning.

Then there's the pitches themselves. Our grass pitch was massive and included clearly defined spaces for 'car', 'caravan' and 'awning'. Given that we didn't bother with an awning for our one-night stay, we barely used half of our allocated space. However, the hardstanding pitches are substantially smaller and one had been allocated to a huge twin-axle caravan meaning that its nose stuck out into the road beyond. The owners may want to have another look at this in the future.

And that's it. That's all two things we didn't like. Everything else is lovely. The drive down into the site, past a pond with ducks and chickens is a wonderful sight. The owner (Martin) was friendly and helpful, the site's location is beautiful and peaceful, yet within easy reach of many attractions (Rufford Mill, Newstead Abbey and Creswell caves to name but a few). The food at the Lion pub in Farnsfield (nearest village) is superb - if you can get a table.

The site facilities are basic but perfectly adequate for its size, the covered outdoor washing area is nice and the enclosed dog run and child's BMX track are attractions in themselves.

So there you have it. We'd happily recommend this site to anyone. Just don't bother asking for a hardstanding pitch and remember those coins!

Excellent camp site, owners were extremely polite and helpful. Facilities were clean and well kept. Camp site itself was very well kept and catered for all ages. Pets were allowed with a separate dog walking area. Will return again. Keep up the good work :)
