Peaceful site near the Humber

This is a peaceful and relaxing site within a few hundred metres of the Humber. The site is mown grass with virtually flat pitches. A drive runs through the site so 3 pitches are one side and two the other. They are not marked out - but plenty of room. The drive goes to a storage compound at the rear of the site but there was little activity - even on a Sunday/Monday in August when you might expect vans returning. The site is surrounded with hedges & trees which act as shelter from winds off the Humber. A very warm welcome from Derrick & Jean Bennett, who provide a useful leaflet outlining local facilities. In three full days we didnt travel more than 10 miles from the site. Thornton Abbey & gateway are well worth a visit. Barrow has plenty of old buildings. Barton has lots of historic aspects and an industrial past - a historic centre, and e.g. the rope walk (rope making & local arts centre), Wilderspin school museum. In Barton, as a motorhomer, we found parking in the Baysgarth House museum, which is also worth visiting. There are co-ops in both Barrow & Barton. We found street parking near the church in Barrow. There is also a Tesco in Barton (near the Ropewalk) with motorhome access. There is plenty of walking along the Humber and several nature reserves in the area. Some sites e.g. museum are not open all week - so do your research before you go. We would stay here again if in the area.

Lovely quite site

Lovely and welcoming site. Pitches quite private. Very welcoming owners, lovely little leaflet given on arrival of local info. Trains, buses, markets, shops etc. Close walk to the river bank, we biked along. Toilet was abit scary to use in the dark! Onlyused once and stocked to our caravan. No views from the site.

We will be back

We stayed here on 14th August 2017, it was a last minute decision and we are so pleased we found this lovely site. Jean and Derek were very welcoming, as was Shaun, their son who lives next door. It has all the usual facilities and a private wc and wash basin. The mature trees are beautiful and everything is so well kept. We had a very peaceful stay and there was no rush for us to leave next morning. We will certainly we returning.

Lovely site to escape to

Very tranquil, lovely warm welcome, well kept, great location to access events either side of the Humber. We stayed here August Bank Holiday weekend last year. We live 30 minutes away and are CL owners ourselves but needed an escape - this was the perfect tonic. We walked our working gun dogs along the banks of the Humber and stopped off for refreshments when needed! We visited Barton and Barrow, both well resourced for small places. We hope to be back, thank you. P.S. we did leave our CL in very capable hands :-)

A warm welcome awaits

We stayed here for 3 nights last week. Mr and Mrs Bennett were very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. The site is very well looked after. Walks from the site to Barrow and Barton along the estuary front, with fantastic views of the Humber Bridge. Both towns worth a look at. Barton has some very interesting buildings and heritage. The museum at Barton - Baysgarth is worth a visit and its free. Also St Peters Church in the town which is owned by English Heritage, unfortunately it was not open until March. If your into birdwatching, which we are, then from the site there is the Lincolnshire wildlife trust reserve with a couple of hides to go in or Far Ings near to Barton is also worth a visit. Definately an area with much to do and a place we'd like to go back to.
