 My husband, 2 grandsons and I have just returned from spending 3 nights/4 days at The Willows caravan site and we have thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

We found the facilities very clean and hygienic and perfect for our needs. I do think, at this time of the Coronavirus, there should be hand sanitizer available.

Thank you Lynda and husband, we would not hesitate to recommend your site and look forward to visiting again. Regards Viv Smith

 A lovely peaceful site. Friendly and helpful.

We were told to pitch anywhere on the main field, plenty of space despite being in school hols. Tidy and clean. Plenty of birdlife.

Attractive surroundings and 'lake' area. Perfectly located for the coast but still rural and quiet.

We will definitely be back!

 Had 5 day at the willows, fantastic weekend,

Lynda and gary arranged a fishing match for all children and adults, great day everyone enjoyed it

This is a family site and great to hear people laughing and having fun,

A few rules and regulations that are mostly for our own health and safety and to protect young children and keep them safe which is a small price to pay

I would advise anybody to visit the site themselves as I think they would be pleasantly surprised

What a gem of a place this is.

And what great host lynda and gary are, nothing is too much trouble for them and they try their very best.

 We have loved coming here to relax numerous times in the past but on our recent stay with 2 other units it was not relaxing. The check-in is never ending - more like a lecture, explaining all the rules etc several times over (rules in moderation are great for everyone but a written sheet would have been better).

We booked a few weeks previously and was assured that they could fit the 3 of us around the lake but on arrival - as there is no pitch numbering structure but a free for all around the lake it was uncertain as to what space was available so consequently we could not pitch together around the lake but two of us could on opposite sides.

We were told it was because of a fishing match but was not told this on booking. If the pitches had been marked out there would have been enough space for us and others.

2 of us wanted electricity and agreed to share the same outlet but were told different rates for the electric - 1 was charged but didn't get a card until made to feel awkward at the reception when asked.

Due to confusion as to the expected duration they lost electric in the middle of the night. We were told that they might have to leave the pitch at noon on Sunday if anybody wanted it but then just as we were making a drink at 11am, before we all planned to leave around 1pm, they told us that the 2 electric pitches were required at 12 so a relaxing cuppa became a rush job.

A long detailed explanation was given about the entrance fobs and having to pay 40 if any of us went off with one - most sites have a simple procedure of a deposit which is retrieved once the fob is returned.

I explained that 1 friend was coming later that afternoon and the other the next day. When the first one arrived 2 hours after, they were told that they were not expected until tomorrow! I was told they were going on a particular pitch, they were told the same but the person showed them to the adjacent pitch then as they were setting up they were told they were on the wrong pitch and had to move.

All in all it was unnecessary stress and frustration with conflicting information given, erratic pitch allocation and people not aware of their own site. Sadly we will all be looking elsewhere now.

 We understand this site is under new owners

So changes are being made all around. Very big pitches, although we were told that around the lake is mainly for seasonals, ( non electric) not a problem for us, as this time hubby didn't fish. Linda is a lovely lady and helpful too, Didn't use the toilet block, nice big skip bins for rubbish, nothing to do for our kids though, but there is a big green area to play football or just to mess around on.

Very closely situated to A46, Grimsby and Cleethorpes are within 20 min drive. Lovely Chinese takeaway in Laceby itself ( apparently they deliver too ), also been told there is a lovely fish n chip shop there too. A big Morrisons with petrol station 5 mins drive away. Very lovely clean well kept site.

Reviewer: PHIL HARRIS 1 review from this member

 Stayed on this site over the weekend, absolutely fantastic.

Linda, Gary & Chris were very helpful, we're new to camper vans so still testing the water.

Looks like they're making some changes to the site & we will definitely be returning to check out the progress.

The shops are quite local but better in a car unless you like a good walk, worth taking food/cooking equipment with you.

Thanks guys & see you soon.

 Just stayed on site for 4 nights with electric, using electric credit cards is a brilliant idea I wish the c&c club would use it, lovely site, plenty of space, great fishing lake, took our 2 grandsons(5) & they loved the open space to play in.

All the people camping were very friendly, this site seems to make everybody chill out and enjoy their surroundings, the owners were very nice and helpful we will be going back very soon,

Nigel & lorraine
