Reviewer: Kerrie 1 review from this member

 Stayed here as itís not too central and away from all the chaos, we were the only couple there for the two days and we have two dogs,

Pitches are spacious and a field just over the back to exercise the dogs first thing and last thing at night.

Very clean toilet/ shower facilities and a lovely pub.

Owners are very friendly, very much enjoyed our stay and would likely stay again.

 Newly taken over. Found landlord very friendly. Facilities basic but have been made as good as possible in a short space of time, hopefully will be further improved over time

Basic food menu in the pub but again all our meals were tasty, hot and reasonably priced.

It's in a perfect location within a short walk to Buses to Skegness etc

Hope to return in the near future

 What a comedown! Been coming here for several years and been mightily impressed but not this time. On entering the pub to advise the guy behind the bar I'd booked 2 pitches for 3 nights I was met with a "not with me you didn't". After insisting I did book over the phone (with presumably the landlord who wasn't present) I was told to pitch up where we could. Bear in mind this is a 5 caravan site at back of pub, there were already 5 caravans present but only one was occupied, the others being allowed "seasonal" standings it would seem.

The pub has changed hands and has been refurbished to an impressive standard but not serving food despite the pub website saying otherwise and a big sign on side of pub stating same. The pub was empty for the 3 nights we were there, nobody came in at all, it which is such a shame and the pub was freezing with no heating on at all! not even crisp, nuts chocolate etc behind the bar for my kids.

The site was covered in dog poo, the outside toilet for the caravanners was blocked, no toilet paper and the single shower didn't work. Suffice to say bitterly disappointed and we wont be going again.

 I rang to make the booking and spoke to a very pleasant man who asked me for payment up front (£20 per night) for a 2 night stay, and said the pub opened at midday so arrive anytime from then. We arrived at 12. 15, pub was shut and no one around, I tried ringing just went to answer phone after an hour we chose a pitch ourselves but couldn't use toilet as it was code locked.

We had plans to meet friends so left and came back in evening pub was open so got code. Toilet didn't even have a sink to wash hands after using toilet. The fishing was a stream at side of pub. Wasn't impressed, however couldn't fault the pub real fire cosy atmosphere and very good food, as a pub id recommend to anyone but wont use the camping again first caravan and camping site we've used and for the money in February didn't think it was worth it. Shame as all other reviews were very positive :-(

Reviewer: Boris01 5 reviews from this member

 Lovely site. Only stayed one night, as dropped off son in Chapel St Leonards. Owners very friendly and extremely helpful. Immaculately kept, would highly recommend. The pub is lovely too, fantastic floral display, nice atmosphere, friendly crowd and food very nice. Even though there was a Karaoke night on, which we enjoyed, when we returned to our motorhome we couldn't hear any noise from the pub at all.

Ideally situated for those that like to just be on the outskirts of a resort, but well within easy walking distance of village centre and beach. Owner even offered to give our son and partner a lift to their caravan site that they were staying in. Will definitely return next time we're in that neck of the woods. Thank you for a pleasant stay.

 This is a real little diamond, beautifully kept and very small, but this gives it a real village feel to your stay as everybody talks to each other.

The owners are great really friendly and will do anything for you, the food in the pub is good, curry night was a steal at £4 a pop good deal!

The site has basic amenities toilet and a big roomy shower no little pokie cubicle nice and roomy, always spotless.

Only a short walk to the beach and centre, lovely little dog walk across the road and over the bridge by the river, excellent for the early/late doggie runs, and most people cleaned up after which was nice to see as we are sticklers for this with our dog.

I cant fault this site in any way it was just lovely, can't wait to return next year.

 Just had a lovely weekend at the ship inn. What fabulous site, only 5 vans. Everything is kept spotless, toilet, shower and the site. It is the friendliest site we have been to. Good food and beer in the pub. The owners are two off the nicest people you wish to meet. We had a great weekend with our daughter and son in law and granddaughter. It's only a short walk to chapel st leonards and the beech where you can walk for miles. Cant wait to go back see you soon

 This is an excellent C & CC Certificated Site, situated at the rear of a great pub which serves good food and ale. The owner is very friendly and helpful, he prides himself on making sure everything runs smoothly. There are two toilets and one shower which are quite basic but always clean.

A walk of about 15 minutes brings you to the village, where there are shops, including a Co-op and two or three pubs, a fish and chip shop, Chinese takeaway, and an excellent Italian restaurant.

The beach is clean, lovely soft sand and the sea is perfect for little ones to paddle in. Good bus service from outside the campsite to Skegness or Mablethorpe, and great for cycling, very flat! All in all a smashing little site!
