Alan Rogers Review
There has been a small campsite here for many years, but the current owner has transformed the appearance of the original camping area alongside an attractive little fishing lake and has created a larger lake with additional pitches and facilities.
There are 76 touring pitches (some seasonal), all with electricity (16 amp), on gravel hardstanding and separated by grass borders, raised flower beds or timber beams. Tents are not accepted. A pleasant walkway runs along the embankment bordering the (unfenced) main lake.
The site is a member of the Caravan and Motorhome Club Affiliated Site Scheme but visitors who are not members of the club are also very welcome.
This attractive park will appeal to fishing enthusiasts and to nature lovers who prefer a simple, unsophisticated site in a peaceful rural setting. The lakes are stocked with a variety of fish and anglers also have access to two of the three fishing lakes in the adjacent Wagtail Fisheries. Walkers are well catered for, with three circular walks on bridleways starting from the nearby village. Belton House (NT) and Belvoir Castle are both only a short drive away and the historic market towns of Grantham and Newark provide a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants.
Two small heated buildings near the original pitches each provide an en-suite controllable shower, washbasin and WC. A new heated and well equipped toilet block includes an accessible toilet and laundry facilities. No children's facilities. Motorhome service point. Security barriers. Small shop. Gas supplies. Secure caravan storage. Fishing (£5 per person). Wi-Fi over site (charged). No late-night arrivals area. Pets allowed. Dog walk. Train station 1.5 miles.
