 Booked this site as it was walking distance to Melton Mobray, good point.

Nice welcome and choose your own pitch, good.

All grass, but it was very firm. Good

Quite modern facilities, cleaned regularly. Good. But if no one comes in the facility whilst in the shower, the lights go off not good in the darker months.

The main bad point is that the pitches are alongside the road the trees don't keep the noise down and as it is national speed limit and melton appears to have a lot of petrol heads, both cars and bikes, it can get a little noisy!

 Very nice site which is within close walking distance of Melton Town centre.

The staff were very friendly and helpful and the facilities were in excellent condition.

 To say this site is poorly run would be a understatement, we arrived set up and went to the town when we got back there ere two caravans either side of us so close we could almost touch through the windows.

This could have prevented by the site having pitch markers in the correct place.

Toilet blocks are a long walk from the pitches and there are not enough fresh water stands.

Main problem for us was the horrendous noise from the adjacent road which is almost 24 hours.

 This was our first visit to Sysonby Acres but I am sorry to say it will be our last.

The site is lovely but the pitches are just behind a sparse hedge next to the busy A6006. The road noise was constant all day and through the night. Not good for children or light sleepers. Before arriving I checked the web site for COVID restrictions.

I noted that there was a restriction on the number of units to allow for social distancing. Whilst there were fewer units there was no extra metres allowed between the units. The next caravan to us was just barely 4 metres away.

There was no supervision nor information on pitching the units and despite raising this with the manager there was no response.

Very disappointed and as said earlier we will not be returning.

 Nice site with good facilities( Showers closed on our stay due to covid)

Only draw back is road noise but will not stop us using again. Good Value.

It's a 25min walk to town with bus outside Golf and Football Golf avail on site

 Very helpful and friendly staff. Enjoyed our stay.

Although it can be noisy as road directly behind pitches, it didn't really bother us but may be something to bear in mind if you have got young children.

 Good location on the edge of town, overlooking a golf course. Possible to purchase coffee and ice creams.

Excellent staff, ehu and water, showers and toilets.

Would use again if visiting the area

Reviewer: Bobleonard 4 reviews from this member

 A very basic site. Just off the main road into Melton on the edge of the golf course. A line of grass pitches border the access road that runs along the hedge. First be aware this is a main road all be it a B road.

Certainly if you are coming from the Midlands it is likely that your satnav will send you this way. The road is de restricted at this point and appears to be a bit of a raceway with its associated noise.

The hedge does soak up some of the road noise but not all of it. Each pitch is of a good size with electric hook up and there are water stand pipes situated along the service roadside.

The facilities share the main golf reception area which include as far as the gents are concerned 3 showers and two toilets. H

owever when we were there they were 'unkempt'. My enquiry to the staff revealed they are only cleaned once or twice a week. Which is clearly not enough. They are open 24 hours with a security light at night. They do have grey water and thetford facilities on site.

There is also an outside sink unit for washing pots and pans but by the look of it, it hasn't been used for some considerable time. There is a small child's playground on site.

Ideally suited for a 15 minute walk downhill into Melton Mowbray and only a 4 taxi ride back. The biggest attraction is the cost to stay which at this time is 14 per night and falls to 10 in December.

We had stayed there for the very popular food festival, yet there were only 6 units on site. Overall a very very basic site. You get what you pay for.

 Spent the August bank at this site.

We were in a party of 3 and when the first unit arrived they was a little concerned that the pitches we were given were to close together for us all to fit. When this was report to the reception they said just move the pitch numbers do that you have enough space.

The pitches are down the hedge row that runs down the side of a main road which had cars going passed nearly all night. Which could be a problem if you are a light sleeper. The site looks like a add on to a golf course which also offers foot golf which the kids thought was great.

There is a basic play park with goals. The weather on the Saturday was not the best it rain all afternoon and some of the night. I thought it would be very muddy when we got up the next day but the ground had drain and was just a little soft under foot.

Toilet block was clean with nice hot showers.

We had taken bike with us and it only took about 10mins to get into Melton Mowbray. We found a country park which was great for the kids as there was plant of open space and 3 different play parks.

 Have passed this site many times en route to Melton Mowbray and always wandered what it might be like to stay there. Know Melton very well especially on Tuesday when it's farmers market day.

This site is about 15 minutes walk into town along a busy main road. The site itself is a little strange. It's on the site of the par 3 golf course where the grass pitches run along the side of the hedgerow bordering the site and running parallel with the busy road (de restricted road speed limit 60mph. ) So yes can be a little noises at times.

The first 25 pitches have electric hook up but there is plenty of room for wild campers. The facilities you actually share with those using the golf course which includes toilets and showers.

I didn't shower but felt the toilet area needed a damn good clean. I did bring this to the attention of the man in the office. There aren't any special facilities for grey water or thetford users.

There are however taps near pitches to draw water from. Yes it is basic, no it's not 5 star but it's in a great location and the tariff is very reasonably priced. We paid 14 per night which included electricity.

Also on the site is a child's nursery, so there is a little noise at times. The golfing reception area ( I don't think you could say clubhouse) sells a few essentials at reasonable prices and you can even get a book to read. Outside golfing hours the facilities are still accessible.

Overall we enjoyed our stay and will no doubt be returning soon.
