Fantastic welcome from the owner Trevor which included a jar of complimentary home made chutney, nothing was too much trouble for this most helpful friendly site owner. The site was immaculately kept with grass so close cut it was more like a lawn than a grass pitch. The site is huge and I mean huge, which means plenty of space for caravans and awnings to spread out. The toilet block is always beautifully kept and they include disabled toilets and shower. Fabulous views from the site and walks nearby make it a pleasure to go back to the site after a hard day exploring the countryside towns and villages nearby. If your lucky you will see the Barn Owl as it hunts in the morning and evenings as well as buzzard overhead hares in the field opposite the site and a Kestrel that may sit on a nearby post.
A village shop and the Three Pickerels Pub at Mepal two miles away means you don't have to go to bigger towns if all you want is to explore the many footpaths and cycle routes near the site. We went for a weekend and stayed a fortnight the site and area is so nice. Congratulations to Steve problem is it's going to be difficult to improve the site, but I'm sure he's thinking of something right now.
