Alan Rogers Review
Brookside is an immaculately kept, peaceful, adults only park on a bank of the River Trent, close to its confluence with the Humber. It is an ideal base from which to explore North Lincolnshire, with the possibility of crossing the Humber Bridge to visit Hull and the Yorkshire coast. Of the 70 pitches, 35 are for touring, on spacious hardstandings with grass verges separated by neat hedges. All have 10A electricity; a further 16 connections are available on unmarked grass pitches around the edge of a large, gently rising field on which 19 more units can be accommodated. Beyond this is an impressive bank of trees.
Whilst washing the dishes, visitors can browse an extensive range of leaflets describing some of the area’s attractions. There are information packs for walks and cycle trails along the nearby Ancholme Valley as far as Brigg and its Heritage Centre. Close to the park is Normanby Hall Country Park; its Regency mansion, Victorian walled garden and farming museum can be visited daily. In Barton-upon-Humber, close to the Humber Bridge, is Waters’ Edge Country Park offering a range of nature walks. Scunthorpe, an easy drive to the south, has shops, bars and restaurants and a number of tourist attractions including the North Lincolnshire Museum.
A modern, well maintained and heated toilet block (brightened by pictures and flowers, and music from local radio) has preset showers and open-style washbasins, plus one in cabins on each side, hair- and hand dryers. Excellent en-suite unit for disabled visitors. Dishwashing with tourist information and small exchange library. Washing machine, dryer and ironing facility. Motorhome services. WiFi over site (free). Four-acre field for dog walking.
