Reviewer: Marian 1 review from this member

 Very well kept site very clean the shower/toilets were of the highest standard possible.

Small shop but had the basic things you may need. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

If you like a quiet site to stay on with plenty of trees, squirrels and chickens wander freely

I highly recommend this site.

There is an indoor pool but we didn't use this also a small cafe but it was only open friday to sunday.

 A pleasant stay. Although near main roads, and the airport, the site was surprisingly quiet and we slept well.

Facilities were very good. More water points would have been appreciated.

We did not like having to manually open the entrance gate each time.

At the end of our stay the site was very busy with many tentcampers with children, for which this site is ideal.

The local bus runs every 20 minutes, including the evenings so it is ideal to visit the city of Nottingham.

 Thornton's Holt is ideally situated close to Radcliffe on Trent and walks along the canal,

Peaceful with traffic noise too far away to be annoying,

Chickens wandering around, safe for children,

Would go back again.

 Lovely setting, quiet and easy to get to cycle trail. Clean wash facilities. Grass short and trees and hedges well maintained.

Obviously not all amenities were open during our stay.

 Lovely clean tidy place. Good measures in place for COVID-19. Really enjoyable was a shame shop and pool were closed but understandable in circumstances.

Think the staff do an amazing job of keeping everything to such a high standard.

We were in a motorhome just myself and hubby. No pets. 2 people

 A great site with large pitches & lots of open space. Dog friendly, but dogs need to be on a lead as there are a number of chickens which range freely around the site. Ther is however a country park which can be accessed about 20 yards from the site.

Because of the size of the pitches the ehus are sometimes quite a distance away, so a long cable is recommended.

The whole site and especially the toilet block is kept immaculately clean.

My only criticism about this site is the poor signage. On arrival you are given a pitch number & a site map. Study the map carefully as signs on site point to different areas such as the paddock, the meadow etc. But do not show pitch numbers which can be found on the perimeter of the field, but first of all you need to find the correct field!

That being the only criticism, I can safely say I will use this site again.

Reviewer: Barnyspike 1 review from this member

 Spent a weekend at this site. There could be some vast improvements made by cutting back the hedges so pitch numbers can be seen and electric boxes can be found without having to get inside the hedge.

Roadway round the site is full of potholes. Noisy road, pub at the end of the road is more of an eating establishment and shuts at ten o'clock.

As a plus, toilet block and washroom facilities are excellent but what really spoilt it for us although we were only pitched a few metres away from the toilet block, a certain individual felt fit to pee in the hedge bottom or his car in broad daylight with children around.

 Just returned from a [3night] midweek stay here, quite simply, its one of the best sites we've stayed on.

It has generous sized pitches [both hardstanding & grass]. And the grass is kept well cut.

The toilets are brand new, with enough [free] hot water for a shower, they're on a timer, which allows four pushes [three was enough for me to shower, shave & shampoo my hair]. Generous sized cubicles allow you to shower without having to watch that you don't splash your clothes. And even "piped music" is provided.

Work is currently under way to build what looks like it will be some sort of bar/pub/clubhouse, it also has a small shop selling basic essentials.

The gate is security controlled with a keypad [as are the showers/loos].

WE found the staff very friendly & helpful. The shop sells "Free Range" eggs [they must be free range, 'cos the chickens were wandering around everywhere. And they visited our caravan every morning & evening].

Whilst there [for three nights] we visited the Great Central Railway at Loughbrough, and Melton Mowbray [a delightful little town. And the choice of pies from "the olde pie shoppe" are amazing, and delicious].

We looked in on the nearby National Watersports Centre at Holme Pierpoint, but TBH, nothing there appealed. But we still feel that there is plenty more to do in the area.

I see some have complained [on here] about traffic noise, but TBH, we did'nt find it a problem.

I meant to use the swimming pool at some point, but somehow, we did'nt find the time. [it seems its run in "sessions" and pre-booking is essential].

My only complaint is that we found the entrance to the site hard to find, setting the postcode in our sat-nav sent us entirely wrong, its poorly signposted, and we ended up phoning the site for directions. My advice is "approach the site from the A46 if you can, and watch out for the railway bridge".

I cant really comment on "child friendliness". As we didn't have our grandchildren with us, but had we done so, there was plenty of space for them to play safely, within our sight. Although I saw no evidence of a "childs play area"

At £77. 25 for three nights [two adults, one dog, caravan & awning with EHU] it's not what I consider "over-expensive". But this site oozes quality, and quality is never cheap anyway.

Would we return?. Yes, most certainly.

Reviewer: ReedsUnited 1 review from this member

 Lovely campsite with excellent facilities! Very good value. Booking the pool on arrival was essential on our hot busy weekend.

Although the camping field was full, there was plenty of space for the children to run and play. No queueing for toilets but short queue for morning shower.

The owners are working hard to care for their customers. There is a day visitor policy which is outlined in pitch details on the website which requests visitors leave by 5pm. We appreciate that there could be campers taking advantage of the site facilities but we felt 5pm was too early a cut-off.

We would definitely book this site again but not with family offsite and would request a pitch away from the road to avoid early morning traffic noise.
