 We stayed at Birchwood over the Bank Holiday ( was lucky we got the last pitch ) The site clean as are the facilities. Space in between tents so did not feel like sardines in a tin. Campsite warden was friendly, camp shop sell drinks and snacks also fishing equipment. It was very reasonably price 20 per night for family of five.

Tip: There is a public footpath behind the campsite. Roughly 30-40 mins walk into Skegness. Lovely little pub to stop in on the way or way back.

 Not recommended. Toilets and shower was dirty, local and visiting fishermen parking on our plot. This site is overpriced for what is on offer.

The toilets and showers were being cleaned when we arrived on the Monday. I was directed to use the ladies when I went to the gents. Later in the day I went for a shower and could now believe the state of it when I closed the door. No cleaning was done till Friday and even then it was not good. Won't be going back.

 Great site with very flat well kept grass area, great location with only a short ride to both Skegness and Ingoldmells. The site has very clean toilets and shower blocks with local shops only 2 minutes away and is ideal for anglers as it has a good well stocked lake with a small pond in the centre of the site. Child friendly but has no play area for them and electric hook up is available on request. The site also has hot and cold drinks as well as ice pops if so need them. All in all a good clean family site with cheap ground rates and everything you need for a camping holiday.

 Lovely site. Only a few miles from Skegness but worth it (although I'm glad I borrowed a friends' SATNAV to find it (would it be possible to signpost it for the future?!)

Nice and quiet with good facilities. Modern &clean shower/toilet block and washing up area is under cover.

We didn't go for the fishing but there were plenty that did!

2 pools. One with fish to feed/watch, the other to fish in! Also some friendly ducks around!

My son is now 16 so we weren't after children's' facilities but with the beach only a few miles away what more could you want?!

 We found this to be a lovely site in a nice peaceful location with good access to Skegness.

The on site warden was very helpful and the site itself is well kept. Toilets were clean and tidy. Though you need to remember to take a torch out with you at night which the kids found brilliant.

We took the kids to Butlins for the day which was only a 5 minute drive away.

Would recommend as a base to enjoy Skegness.

 Stayed at this site last weekend for 4 days. Managed to get on the site at 1pm after calling instead of 3pm. Nice site with a pond in the middle which is fenced off, then there is a fishing lake.

There are toilet and shower blocks, the only problem is that the water goes under the doors so a bit hard to get dry as no where to put your clothes could do with a mop and bucket leaving in. There is also a pot washing area.

Skegness is only a few minutes drive away but there is a bus stop about 10 minutes walk away. There is a Premier shop not too far away, bit far to walk.

One of the problems with this site is that children go round the lake on their own which is a bit of a pain when fishing, the other problem is that you are not supposed to arrive till after 3pm which is a bit late as half the day has gone by the time you are set up.

The site managers are helpful and friendly. Will definitely visit again.

 I would highly recommend this site as it is very clean.

There is a lovely little lake for fishing and the people who run the site could not be more helpful if they tried.

It is a quiet site so perfect for a relaxing break.

It is only a short drive from both skegness centre and fantasy island.

Although you have to drive to shops the on site managers will rustle you up a sandwich and drinks if need be.

We will be returning in the very near future A+

 Great little campsite, basic but we had a lovely stay in this quite and really friendly campsite.

It is well maintained however, the toilet block could do with an extra service during the evening period although there was plenty of hot water and toilet roll!

Great place to stay if you want days out to Skegness as it is only 1. 5 mile to the beach front!

On arrival is wasn't clear where the reception/site office was. Maybe this could be improved.

All in all would go back and stay there again.

 We have been here a number of times now and have always found the site to be very clean, tidy and quiet

There is a some electric hook ups and you can generally choose where you want to park up

It is not a busy site at all - in fact if you want the sun ( lol ) a cuppa and to sit and listen to the birds this is the place - no noisy kids or other residents around here

There is a lovely clean toilet block with a couple of loos and showers and hand basins for both male and females - but no disabled facilities but then I am sure you would be able to use these no problems

There is a sink to wash up outside and usual stand pipe for cold water and facilities to empty your toilet waste etc

There campsite is a largish field with a small lake in the middle which I often feed the large koi fish and carp in which seem very friendly and come up close to you to be fed

There is also a larger lake to one side that the fishermen go on to do their thing !

And if you r stuck for a bacon buttie then the resident site warden who also lives on the site in his caravan will gladly make you a bacon buttie or a cuppa for a very reasonable price

It is a bit of a hike about 10 mins to the nearest bus stop either in the lane or go thro the back way into southview and catch the bus there (which is what we tend to do) and bus it into skeggy about 10-15 mins into skeggy depending on traffic)

Much easier than trying to park in skeggy

Nearest shop is on southview or do what we do- go into town much cheaper

Site fees this year is 14 for our caravan with an additional 2 per night for awning and this is the same price all year - no price hikes for bank holidays or peak season

We will be back again in 2 weeks and cannot wait

A great quite site - it is not butlins so be warned just grass, fish and birds !

 Birchwood was well kept, tidy and peaceful. Jack the warden was very helpful friendly and approachable.

Despite the lack of pressure of the showers, the toilet block was always kept clean. There was the added advantage of being able to fish in the nearby pond. My husband had great pleasure in participating in this hobby.

Would need a car however to get to Skegness. Skegness is your old fashioned seaside resort; amusements, pier, donkey rides, seafood kiosks, fish and chippies and not forgetting the fair.

Talking about the fair, nearby in Ingoldmells is 'Fantasy Island' with a gigantic fair and the largest outdoor market in Europe.

All in all had a fantastic fortnight here and would consider going back.
