 Chose this site due to it's proximity to Lincoln, there are bus routes in to town however at the time of our visit there was a strike which meant hanging around for an hour waiting. When running they leave every 15 minutes.

The facilities appeared clean although dated. The female park ranger was very helpful and went out of her way to give information however the warden appeared to be totally indifferent.

The office was closed on our arrival with information regarding site details in the window, while I was looking at them the warden passed by and other than pointing me to the window gave no other information such as the codes for the gate or toilet!

Not sure if we would use this site again, the location is great however no-one likes to feel that they are not worth the effort of engaging with.

 Lovely quiet site with good size pitch. Facilities are good, clean and well maintained.

Local shop and chip shop close by and great bus route into Lincoln just outside the park.

Enjoyed our stay, would recommend and stay again 😎

 Site in lovely area lots of nice walks. Bus stop in Lincoln close to site. Bus confuse as to the size of our hard standing pitch. Wasnít really big enough (but was adequate).

The facilities leave a lot to be desired desperately need to be updated ( one of the showers ceased to work during my shower. Oops ). Staff mostly helpful. Not sure Iíll return. Only due to the showers.

 This site was a great find, the position of the site was excellent adjacent to the park, which was great for an early morning run/evening walk.

Toilet/shower block was always spotless and despite being the bank holiday weekend we didn't queue at all. Another bonus for me was being so close to Boultham parkrun for my Saturday morning run.

Good bus service into Lincoln every 10 mins or so. An updated gate lock/system would be a benefit.

Would definitely return to this site if up this way again.

 What a little gem of a site. Have been meaning to go this site for years, never got around to it. We were NOT disappointed.

There are 34 pitches with 1 camping pod. Male and female toilets and showers(key code access) all pitches nicely spaced, surrounded by trees and parkland.

The access to the site is via the main car park just off the main road. My only groan would be the gate to the site which is a padlock and a chain. As this is a council run site I would have expected access to be a little better and a better means of access. This wasn't a great problem for a few days but I guess it could be a bit of a chore if you were staying longer.

No wifi - but mobile signals were more than adequate - 3 and EE were fine

The site has the usual, water point and grey waste and elsan points located near the site entrance, along with bins.

It doesn't feel like your in a city centre at all apart from the odd siren or two in the distance. The park itself is very nice indeed, with plenty of walks for the dog around lakes. Lots of wildlife to see including the most friendly squirrels I have ever seen.

There is easy access to Lincoln itself. There is a bus stop just outside the park gates. ( Parking in lincoln can be expensive. ) for the brave - it could be walked. Lincoln boasts lots to see, do and eat. There is an array of supermarkets within a few minutes drive - sainsbury's and morrisons. A little further afield is asda. Fish Chips locally too as are other fast food outlets.

There is a small cafe on the park site itself, which was busy whilst we stayed due to lots of other events which were happening during our time there.

The wardens were very pleasant and helpful from the moment of booking until our departure.

This is definitely one to visit again and again. What could be improved - Wifi, Barriers to the site entrance and lastly an easy way to get out of the car park- exiting the car park with a caravan on the back by going through the designated exit route is practically impossible and I think at busier times this is the main let down to the site.

 We booked on this site for the Lincoln Christmas market. Arrived at lunchtime to find the warden office closed. A kind local man told us he had gone for his lunch. We didn't have to wait long around 10-15 minutes before the warden came back. The wardens are extremely helpful telling you everything you need to know. Shops supermarkets food where to eat bus stops timetables etc.

The pitches are mostly grass with a gate at the entrance that is kept closed with a big thick chain and padlock on it. The pitches are of a good size and it was always lovely and quite especially at night.

The campsite is next to a country park but we did not visit. There is a couple of pubs for food about 30 mins walk away and a fish and chip shop and supermarket about 10 minutes walk away. The amenity block is dated but clean and warm. Only 3 toilets and 2 showers in the ladies serving 34 ish pitches but I never queued. This site closes for the winter but opens just for the Christmas Market. Would I visit again yes we would.

 This is my second time in this Site. I was here for the same purpose as before, and I shall be coming as long as my 93 year old friend is around, which I hope it will be for long time.

Still enjoying my stay, this time I even found the local shop down the road. Very handy.

 Revisited Hartsholme this summer for probably the 7th or 8th time. Had another lovely relaxed time. There was a large gathering with 4 big tents there to celebrate a birthday and what a lovely bunch they were! They all took time out to chat with me and make sure they weren't too loud - they were in fact quite the opposite. They quietened everything down very early at night - very considerate.

The site was as always - it isn't big and it doesn't have lots of facilities, but it works. The location is excellent and the staff cannot be faulted! Lincoln is a beautiful city and there is plenty to do without having to travel too far. Looking forward to returning next season!

 Excellent campsite set within the country park. Very helpful warden. Facilities (toilets/showers) are kept very clean. There is also a cafe at the country park, handy if you don't want to make breakfast.

Bus stop a short distance away to enable travel to the centre of Lincoln which is 2 - 3 miles so easily walked. There are shops a short distance from the campsite (Coop, Fish bar and another convenience shop).

A walk through the park (25 minutes) takes you to a nearby public house Swan Holme. A good selection of drinks and food.

I would recommend this site very highly and will be visiting again.

 Just returned home following a brilliant 3 day stay at this site. This is the best site we have ever stayed at, due to where it is situated, and the standard of the facilities provided. Also, it is excellent value for money at £19. 50 a night.

The walking available within yards of the camping fields is stunning, as is the wildlife. Although there was just my wife and me and the dog, we were able to appreciate what a great site Hartsholme is for families. Loads for the kids to do, especially if they have bikes, and all in a safe and secure setting.

There are shops very close by, and a decent pub about half an hour's walk away. Lincoln is easily accessible by bus from nearby, and having travelled into the city this way I wouldn't recommend it, unless you're a bus anorak! 40 minutes for 3. 5 miles made me wish that we'd gone in our vehicle, and £4pp return wasn't cheap either.

The only downside I can think of for the site was that they only allow gas bbq's. I suppose this is because they've had scorched grass in the past, so in a way I can't blame them, but it's disappointing when you've taken all the stuff to have one.

Just over an hour from us means that we'll be back again soon!
