 We’ve been visiting this site for a number of years now and have always loved it, but wanted to add now a fantastic new toilet/shower block with disabled facilities too along with dishwashing facilities and laundry too!

It has made a huge difference and looks so posh!

Although we loved the site anyway this will be a great asset to anyone now wanting to camp too.

Lorraine is a lovely warden and the site is kept well maintained and landscape by Simon, we will carry on be long life customers.

 Just popped down for a couple of days, which turned into a week. Fabulous welcome and very very friendly caravaners. Yes I know we have been before but right from our 1st visit the other ' seasonal vans' were always friendly. The 'grass roots' fishing is 1st class, not a big pond, but some good double figure carp in there. I know because I caught one while Lorraine was chatting to us. Great site for visit Bourne, Market Deeping, Spalding etc etc.

We like to go between the two sites in Baston, as I have said before they are so so different from each other. Sheltered somewhat from the nasty fen winds. Road noise is not a problem, yes you can hear some vehicles BUT it is not intrusive.

 This site really made me think about my views on it. The owner when contacting about a pitch was really lovely but we never got to meet her as she went on holiday. The site is a large rectangle of luscious green grass with some hard standings and the fen road to get to it is very bumpy so beware. It is in the middle of the fens and in a very beautiful setting. It has EHU and water for aquarolls conveniently placed. It is a reasonable price too. We were greeted by a stand in who was very friendly. The facilities are through a part of the farm yard and have seen better days though not dirty and cleaned fairly well. We didn't use the showers as they didn't look that inviting. The washing up facility was under a roof cover and because it was up against the barn under trees was well sheltered. The chemical waste & water disposal were adequate. Free wifi too very commendable. The reason I am having to think is because of some of the other things. The road is close and whilst not a main road there was traffic and it was noticeable. Not so much at night but you certainly heard the odd car that went down it. The hard standings were full of what was clearly seasonal pitches. There were 2 empty ones but we were directed to a grass pitch which was fine. However there seemed to be a bit of bad blood between a couple of the seasonals and you could feel it. We did speak to the man who greeted us who was nice and another chap approached us to ask about our BBQ point. The rest just sat in their vans and when they did go out didn't acknowledge you or respond if you waved. So if you like that sort of total solitude go for it. The man who mows the grass does a wonderful job as it really is well kept and luscious BUT he mowed whilst we were there and decided to mow in the gap between our van and some bushes on the side of our power lead, aquaroll and waste hog. No he didn't damage any but it was close as this was a sit on ride mower. We weren't amused as you can guess and could not understand why he needed to do it.

So would we go again? A good question. I think if there was something on in the area that we wanted to go to and stopped a couple of nights but not for any other reason. It's a shame as it's a nicely kept site but there was something wrong with the atmosphere which I have never felt before.

Reviewer: Carrievan69 31 reviews from this member

 Another week spent here, peace, quiet, and relaxing. Can't go wrong. Well worth a visit. The two sites that are in Baston are totally different, chalk and cheese, . But we LOVE them both.

This site is surrounded by trees which block some of the strong ' fen ' winds, . There are some big fish in this small pond, and a good variety, I caught a crusian carp, bream, tench and a grass carp of 5lb, In one day. So plenty to keep you occupied. Free fishing and free wifi are a big plus too.

Thank you Lorraine, see you soon.

One word of warning. BEWARE of the uneven roads leading to this site, if you like white knuckle rides, then go more than 20mph. And that is without towing the caravan. It is frightening if you go to fast.

Reviewer: Kmorto4 27 reviews from this member

 What alovley little site. Caravans are well spaced out. Plenty of room. Fishing is good with a mixed bag of fish

Toilets clean, plenty of hot water. Shower are spot less

The warden is very helpful nothing to much trouble

The only down side is the noise from the near by road

Reviewer: Carrievan69 31 reviews from this member

 Booked here for 3 nights. Ended up for 7. Very very peaceful location site, totally surrounded by trees that block out most of the ' fen winds'. The fishing is completely different to the big 'carp lakes'. Grass roots fishing with a few big fish into double figures. I really enjoyed the change. The hardstanding plots are very big, enough for a car, caravan & awning. Lorraine is really helpful and a lovely lady. I found out some river fishing about 10-15 mins drive away. A must place to go is Springfields, the gardens are superb, you can get the river taxi into Spalding and back for £6p. P. Parking at the centre is £2 for over 2 hrs. Spalding itself it a lovely town, with plenty of independent stores. A wonderful market with excellent fruit & Veg. Toilet / shower block is dated and in the 'farm yard' itself, as we use our own facilities, I can't comment any further. Adult only, which is a blessing, You are quite a. Long way out from any shop, So stock up Well if you don't want to go out every day. We will go back again.

Reviewer: Mucker1884 40 reviews from this member

 (Couple - a tad either side of 50 - look for peace, quiet and tranquillity, but with a few mod cons).

Stayed 2 nights - Fri 5/6 to Sun 7/6.

First time here.

Priority was to be near enough to Rutland Water, for a cycle ride on the Saturday. Turns out this site is approx. 30 min away by car, so good enough for us! By coincidence, friends of ours were here 2 weeks earlier, and recommended the site. Again, good enough for us.

Negatives first:

The shower/loo blocks:

Although clean and tidy (at all times!), they are rather dated, and not the best layout. One shower is just behind a curtain, the other is behind 2 x curtains, so at least offers a drying/dressing area.

The two sinks are more suited for hand washing, than a full on wash. Small and close together. I believe it's a mirror image in the ladies?

Having said that, I must stress this is the cheapest site we have stayed on thus far (In 3 years regular/all year round camping). £14 per night with EHU, £12 without, based on two adults, and regardless of the unit. I believe the only extra is per additional adult. Showers, wifi, dogs, awnings etc are all included. If a posh new loo block was offered at extra cost, in all honesty, I don't know which way I'd vote. They certainly aren't the worst we've seen. Nor are they the best. Ultimately, I'd be happy to use these again as they are.

And that's it, for 'negatives', if I can call it that!

Booked 3 days in advance. No deposit. Paid on arrival. The owner was extremely friendly/likeable, but the sort to leave you in peace, which suits us fine. Met at the gate, with the key fob for the site barrier, and showed around/to our pitch. All very welcoming.

Hot water at all times. Always stocked with handwash/loo rolls etc.

Shower blocks have a small heater on the wall, with push button switch, much like those pub patio heaters. Wasn't needed on this occasion, but have been mentally noted, as we camp all year round! Only time will tell whether they are good enough, I guess.

Free wi-fi.

EHU available for every pitch.

Free use of fridge, freezer and microwave.

Nice and quiet, both on and around the site. My guess is the fact that it is adult only helps on that score!

Two straight rows of pitches. 2 x dozen in total (from memory?) One row hard standing, the rest all grass. All are as flat and level as any camper could hope for.

The grass was superb. Nice length, lush and flat.

The pitches are spacious, as they are not exactly marked. Most are a good 10 to 14m wide, (at a guess), but are almost unlimited in length, given the layout.

Every unit apart from ours was a large caravan, most accompanied by large awnings, space, car, space, bush/tree, next pitch! Not as regimented as it sounds, despite being two straight rows in a rectangular field. In fact, my description is not doing it justice, as it was wonderful, so I'll stop there!

The ground itself has to go down as the best pegging ground we have experienced to date. Whilst it was difficult to push my pegs in by hand (just to get them started, before getting the mallet), they did need a few good whacks to go in, and yet I never felt one stone. No need for rock pegs, yet my pegs held beautifully firm, despite the windy conditions. No idea whether soil/clay/whatever, but perfect for tent pegs!

For the 'vanners amongst you (It seems most visitors here are, but tenter's are made extremely welcome by both owner and guests, if our experience is anything to go by), I can only presume access to the site is fine, judging by the size of some of the units/combo's on site.

Some (not us!) might say this site is a bit 'out of the way'. Nothing in walking distance, other than the walks and public pathways themselves (direct from site) and all in beautifully flat countryside.

Apparently, there are a few nice little towns in the area, but due to such a short stay, and our commitment to cycling on our only full day, we'll leave the local exploring until our next visit!

Oh, did I not say? Of course we'll be back. Why wouldn't we?

My money is on us coming back in winter (if not before), so maybe an update on how those heaters bear up in the shower block!

Thanks for having us.

 This was our third visit to this lovely peaceful site. Lorraine is always friendly and helpful. There is an adequate shower and toilet block and the site is immaculate. As mentioned by other reviewers it is in an isolated area but only a short drive to Stamford, which is a delightful and interesting town. We visited Rutland Water during our latest stay which is about 15 miles away and spent a lovely afternoon walking around and watching the activities on the water. We would definitely recommend this site to anyone looking for a peaceful break.

 Grabbed a quick one night stay as its close to where we live. Booking by phone very easy and friendly with a relaxed view on arrival times and that she would catch up with us for the site fee during our stay.

Lovely well kept site with large hard standing, be aware though hook up is some distance and you may need a extension

Fished the lake twice and caught numerous fish up to about 8 lb though most small crucian, tench and roach.

Nature reserve close by with different length circular walks signposted. Enjoyed a very pleasant evening walk of about 1 1/2 miles.

All the facilities clean and well maintained.

Did not notice the road as very quite at night.

Will be visiting again very soon.
