 We booked two pitches as 20 min from home and daughters 1st trip in their new caravan (mum of 18m old twins) just in case needed to nip home for anything (and they did lol)

We also had booked for Sundown Saturday morning so a great half way spot.

The site was friendly with a laid back yet helpful welcome.

We arrived first and daughter about 20min later we itched awning to awning for convenience.

Asda not far, big Sunday carboot 10 min drive to OldCoates and pub at end of lane is wa friendly and lovely food.

A good experience £106 pe4 van for 3 BH nights fri sat sun. Maybe a little over priced

 A lovely site, New and still developing but will only get better and better. The new owners have all the plans and are not new to Site ownership. The toilets/shower block is undergoing some improvements but was perfectly useable as it stands.

The site is level, well draining and very well looked after.

There are no child play areas and that suits us. TBH if it was adults only it would not be a problem for us and would get a 10/10 rating straight away.

It is not far from us and will probably bee our 'go-to' site for the future.

Added bonus is that there is a really nice local pub about 100yds away, very welcoming and a good menu, would like to have explored further but didn't make it past the pub on this visit.

 Great quite site down a quiet lane with a good pub on the main road.

Access via security gates. Pull in and phone number just outside for help if they are locked. Very helpful and friendly staff.

Good flat grass pitches with or without electric.

Excellent facilities block. Clean with plenty of hot water and sanitiser etc. Though, as the site was busy there was a wait in the morning for showers.

Reviewer: Nejones 2 reviews from this member

 Monday to Friday it was a nice peaceful place. Friendly and helpful owners.

30 pitches advertised but on the Saturday of our stay there were 87 tents, caravans and campers pitched. I didn't count the amount of awnings, gazebos and cars but it was very difficult to find enough room to walk without tripping over someone. All male and female parties playing music into the early hours made each weekend stressful. We came home early because of this.

 Arrived on site to be met by Marlene and Shane the owners helped us pick our pitch any where we wanted to be

Lovely quiet site, even though children are allowed on the site. Small play area for children

Nothing too much trouble for the owners to do for you. If they weren't around there was always Lee to ask, nothing was too much trouble for him. Very friendly man, always there to meet and greet

We have found a little gem and will be visiting regular

Kind regards Mr and Mrs G Walker

 Have reviewed this site a few time so I'd just like to update. Since the owner Ken retired and sold the site on to Shane and Marlena the site has under gone a few improvements and there is more to come.

The site has now got a security gate, a new site office and bin store and a small children's play area. Shane told me that the electric hookups are going to be improved with more available and there is going to be hard standings installed and the shower block is going to get upgraded.

I would like to wish Shane and Marlena all the best for the future and hope to have many more weekends caravanning there.

 Our first time trip to pilgrim fathers site which is under new ownership, we were met by a guy called lee who showed us to our pitch and because the site is still on 6amp he did his best to get us on to full power from a building with electric points.

We later met the owners shane and marlena and what a nice young couple of people. Nothing was too much trouble.

Nice flat fields, great views and walks. Will be back p. S nice pub down the lane

 Fantastic location which is very peaceful. Owners are currently upgrading facilities and have a great vision for the place.

Regardless though itís highly recommended and the owners couldnít have been more helpful - nothing was any trouble.

Pub within walking distance too!

Reviewer: Terry+Linda 43 reviews from this member

 Two visits here in the space of two weeks, the first stay was a "one night" after picking our caravan up from its yearly service at Yorkshire Caravans at Bawtry [as we did last year, see my June 2018 review].

We enjoyed the short break this year so much that we made a last minute decision to book a two night stay the week after.

Having recently changed hands, the site has been improved by the addition of a security gate, a small children's play area [swings & a slide] and what looks to be [intended] as an "Information Office" as you drive in.

I've given 10/10 for child friendliness, because although we did'nt have our grandchildren [aged 5&6] with us, I know they will love it here, and I would feel relaxed knowing that they could play safely on the field within sight, without wandering off, getting lost or worse. I'll have no hesitation bringing them in the future.

The new owners seem very friendly & helpful, as on our second stay all the EHU points were taken, and as I had my spare battery with us they offered to charge it up if need be until the site emptied a bit, and an EHU unit came vacant on the sunday afternoon.

Our first break here was a Tuesday night, and the second was two nights on Saturday/Sunday nights. And whilst we were pleasantly surprised by how well behaved & polite the other campers were [dogs on leads, no loud music, no late night BBQ's etc] we could'nt help but notice how quiet & restful the site is after sunday morning. When everyone else has gone home.

ON arrival, we took a trip into Bawtry for Fish & Chips for dinner, as the local pub, "The Pilgrim Fathers" wanted to charge us £10 for a burger.

AS I listed in my review last year, there is lots "to do" in the area. This year we took a trip into Retford, a drive to Torksey [this included a walk down the bank of the River Trent with a visit into Torksey Caravans. Who's shop seems cheaper than the one at Yorkshire Caravans at Bawtry]

WE will definitely be returning here. Its only 25 minutes drive from our home, but for a quick, easy, local break, I cant think of a more peaceful & relaxing site.
