Reviewer: Fleagal 6 reviews from this member

 Very peaceful, we shared the field with 2 other units the first night and 4, the next.

Had a meal at the Dirty Duck, which was lovely.

Walking with a dog from the site was a dream-there are so many footpaths along and around the canal to choose from.

The toilet block was very nicely refurbished but would be too small if the the site was full, and as someone else commented, the shower floods the floor if you are not careful. The light in there is automatic and turns off very quickly, so take a torch if you shower at night!

The hard standing area is rather rough and next to the pub car park. It really needs sorting out. It would stop us coming to the site in the winter months (the field is only open April to September).

The check in and out times are a bit mean-11 am and 3 pm; however, we contacted the manager to ask if we could delay our departure by a couple of hours and he confirmed that that was fine.

I think that you are allowed on site before 3 pm, if there are pitches free, so why the 4 hour gap between the two?

We would definitely visit again but would have to choose a quieter time again, when the field is still open.

 Always a good place to camp with modern, clean toilet and shower facilities, this campsite is a must for all.

Bonus that it's right next to one of the best foodie pubs in the area.

Reviewer: Viennese 7 reviews from this member

 This campsite is fine in many ways but being owned by Belvoir castle it is expensive for what it is.

We paid £28 per night in September mid-week in term time. Located next door to (but not owned by) a friendly pub with good food, it offers hot showers and toilets but only 2 of each for each sex, and the shower cubicles are very small, with nowhere to put stuff apart from 3 clothes hooks on the door.

Being over 70 I would have appreciated a soap dish and something to sit down on! We came to see round Belvoir castle and to attend a horse festival run at the castle.

There is no public transport or shops near by so we had to take the van to the castle (2. 5 miles) 2 days running.

The castle is very impressive, has a small retail park and and the horse festival was most enjoyable.

We might go again as the countryside is wonderful.

There are good walks in the area, especially along the Grantham Canal next to the site.

The camp site was very quiet while we were there, whether this is due to poor PR or high cost who can say?

It was less than half full on Friday night before the festival next day. A shame as it was quiet and well laid out.

 Brilliant spot and the added bonus of a firework view on Saturday

Toilets and showers were ok but not enough for the amount of visitors at a weekend!

Slighted disappointed to be reminded to turn the Music off at 10pm on the Saturday but then kept awake the following night by a wedding at the pub!

 My family loved the campsite, lovely walks down the canal. Showers could do with being a bit bigger as hard to shower the kids while being in the cubicle with them.

Great help from the booking staff in helping us change our little break and changing pitches so we can be next to our friends pitch.

Kids loved the play park and making lots of new friends

Reviewer: Derryw 1 review from this member

 Great spot - right next to a lovely pub in a rural location but excellent to walk along the Grantham canal or even cycle.

About 1 mile from Belvoir castle.

Site was easy to find, easy to access and easy to find plot.

We used the EHU with no problem.

Only downside was the toilet block - I felt not enough WC, s, only 1 and 2 urinals. 2 showers - so that was adequate. And they were clean. There were quite a few campers on the site, so toilets were in constant use.

Would I go again - YES 👍 - for the location and the Dirty Duck pub - had a great night

 A perfectly functional site for an overnight stop. The site does look desperately tired and ill-kept. Hedgerows need a good cutting back as the pitch numbers have disappeared in the undergrowth.

The site is an excellent park-up for a stopover as the pub served us well - but we would not spend more than a night there. The hard standing area is a gravel car park that has been taken by the weeds.

Toilet block is very good indeed - modern and very clean. To claim it's in the shadow of Belvoir castle means it has to cast an extremely long shadow !

The castle is miles away. It's not visible from where we were pitched !

Reviewer: Katie3 1 review from this member

 Lovely campsite with beautiful walks. NOT suitable for babies, no baby facilities and was very very difficult to try and wash and dry baby with the shower rooms, the shower rooms floors flood a little and not enough hanging space to hang clothes, need to find more space to be able to get dry without getting wet again, the lights in the female toilets don’t stay on very long so when getting a shower it does get dark after a minute to two!

Brilliant pub and lovely staff would camp again but would reconsider whether this is the best place to be with a baby, maybe a disabled/baby changing room with a shower would be perfect! Although not many people camp with a baby!

Other than that the stay was brilliant and will definitely come again and costing for campsite was fair pricing with a beautiful view of the castle! One of the best campsite we’ve stayed in, security guards nearby as well so easy to report any issues

 Clean and tidy site, well spaced pitches. Next door to Dirty Duck pub and nearby walks along the Grantham Canal, bridlepaths and footpaths.

A short drive to Belvoir castle.

Low score for customer service as I booked online and we sited ourselves on pitch allocated. Happy with that.

 Site is very quiet and next to The Dirty Duck which has fantastic food.

Toilet block is very new but a tad on the small side, cleaning regime should be more frequent than we experienced, wet muddy floors left all day.

Ideal location for seeing Belvoir castle.
