 Great location within walking distance of both Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea. Nice flat fields with well maintained grass.

Toilets and showers kept clean and stocked. Barrier on park entrance to keep out people not staying at the park. The shop will freeze your ice packs and sells bread and milk at supermarket prices.

Chinese takeaway 10 mins walk away next to the beach. Good mobile reception. Ideal if you have young kids as the park is in the middle of the non electric hookup field.

Watch out for the hot tap when washing up as it gets too hot to press.

 Made a telephone booking with Anita, she's lovely and friendly. On arrival, staff made us feel welcome and booked us in efficiently, then showed us to the touring field, with a choice of neat, well-kept and very spacious pitches. Very good quality toilet, shower, washup block also separate toilet block close to the touring field Very modern fittings, all spotless clean.

After we had set up, spoke to Anita again, she was very helpful with advice on local attractions. We stayed mid-week, and it was lovely and quiet. As it was school term-time, we did not take our grandchildren with us, but they have a couple of good play areas for younger kids, and Mablethorpe is only a short walk away, with plenty for a family to do.

I highly recommend this site, the whole team is friendly and polite.

 Reviewing again as this is our most visited site, which must say something for the staff / location / and overall experience.

We did use the sun camping 1 a night offer, but even so had an enjoyable trouble and quiet stay with some bingo on the Saturday night, plenty for the younger kids and teens with play park / pool tables / table football machine and a few arcades.

Reasonably priced drinks and serving food till just gone 9pm on Saturday.

Flat level pitches with good ground for pegging tents as we used a little pup tent too.

Excellent I'm sure we'll be back

 We are mature caravanners and have just spent a weekend at this site.

In my opinion the site is geared up for the static owners and not tourers, there was only 1 toilet cubicle per sex to serve approx 30+ tourers, no hand soap at all in the WC hand driers not working and as you approached the toilet block area you were met with a terrible sewage smell.

When I booked the site on the phone I was told it was a hard standing but on arrival was put on a waterlogged grass pitch and when I mentioned it was told he did not know any thing about that. I would also suggest the owners could have been more sociable, I asked the owner if we could stay until 12. 30 so we could have a meal in the cafe before we left and was told no they needed the pitch but when we left at 11. 45 there was lots of empty pitches.

 We spent 8 nights at Kirskstead in our Winnebago over the Easter holidays. We stayed next to one of the static vans in the field as we had people visiting through the week. The plan worked exceptionally well and we all really enjoyed ourselves.

Because we had the static we didn't really use the shower facilities, although when used the toilet/shower block was acceptably clean. The facilities in the static were of a good standard.

The site wardens were really helpful including helping with a water connection and changing gas bottles in the static at 9. 00 at night within minutes of being asked! Brilliant.

The site itself is very child friendly and has two excellent play areas and plenty of room to run free!

The site itself is within 5 minutes cycle ride to the beach and is midway between Sutton on Sea and Mablethorpe; both just over a mile away. Sutton is very small with a few shops, including a well-stocked butchers, reasonable pub and very nice restaurant (Sea Breeze). Mablethorpe is what you would expect from a small seaside town - all arcades, donkeys and candyfloss - but safe and good fun for the kids.

We ventured into Skegness one day but sadly the weather was shocking so cannot really give a decent assessment.

We loved the fact that we could get on the bikes and, aside from having to cross the A52, cycle safely anywhere.

We will definitely go back as it ticked all our boxes.

 Again enjoyed our stay here and been here 3 times at least now and would certainly return. Nice welcome although told there was no entertainment a wedding reception was on but weren't made to stay outside and made to feel welcome by guests and bride.

The camping ground as I've mentioned is still open to the wind blowing through the site. 1 for 10 mins is priced on the high side but only stayed 1 night so didn't use. Beer and soft drinks priced sensibly. The campsite toilet door on the mens sticks somewhat and the 12 year old had trouble with it. A child park has been put in since our last visit. Only think holding it back from being a great site is the full price camping prices/ shower costs. Thanks again we'll be back for another weekend.

 We have just very much enjoyed 7 days at Kirkstead Holiday Park.

It's quite easy to find. We arrived and were shown to our pitch by Mark the owner. He and Anita have a lovely site with grounds that are well maintained, really friendly staff and they can't do enough for you.

The only suggestion that I may put forward is that the toilets and showers require very urgent attention as they were in all honesty, below a respectable standard, not just in cleanliness, but also operationally. We tended to use our bathroom and loo in the caravan instead.

Other than that, the clubhouse was fabulous, shop open regularly and prices excellent. The location of the site is not far from Trusville beach and directly between Mablethorpe and the very lovely Sutton on Sea.

There is info on attractions at the site and they also serve food in the clubhouse. Ironically it has a 5 star hygiene rating. Shame the WC's and showers aren't quite as hygienic.

We will however go back in the future. It's a gem of a place, just needs the rough edges smoothing off. 

Date of Visit: May 2013 Unit:  Trailer Tent
Reviewer: Tomr2992 2 reviews from this member

 Well I visited over the May day bank holiday and the site was very full however not over crowded. The site is situated down a narrow winding road and not the easiest to find. On arrival I was a little confused as where to park my car and trailer as there appeared to be only car parking spaces and no pull in lanes for arriving vehicles. This resulted in me using a car parking space then leaving the trailer stuck out and having to reverse out. Not a good start. Also there is only one entrance and exit so this makes life difficult at times.

The staff on arrival were very helpful and I was shown to my pitch. We had to pay 25 per night and then a 15 deposit for keys to the toilets and showers as well as the barrier key. I did think this was a little steep for a standard site however not knowing many sites I thought I'd give it a try. I was a little disappointed to find out you had to then pay a further 1 for a 10min shower. I think the 25 a night would cover that cost!

As for facilities the showers and toilets were clean. There are two play parks for kids which mine both enjoyed.

There are water and electrical points on each pitch if required which is a fantastic feature. The grounds were also very well kept.

On site there was a club house and shop however I only used the shop so I can't comment on the clubhouse.

Overall a rather expensive site that was just ok. I think if it was a bit cheaper then I would have been singing its praises its just the shower payment on top which I disagree with.

Oh to finally mention the site is smack bang between Sutton On Sea and Mablethorpe so perfect in that respect.
