A Barrow Haven of tranquility

Roxton
This is a tidy site in a garden-like area next to the house but feels private and secluded. The owners are very friendly and will come and chat and make sure you are settled in. There is a storage area for caravans through the site but this never bothered us. It is only a five minute walk to the nature reserve and flooded clay pits and these are wonderful for wildlife. The footpath along the River Humber is perfect and we strung together a fine walk as far as Far Ings Nature Reserve. The pub in Barrow Haven is friendly and only a 10 to 15 minute walk away. Otherwise there is little except birds and squirrels to disturb you here.

3rd Visit

Roxton
Very pleased to have our third visit with Jean & Derrick. Nothing's too much trouble for them. We always receive the perfect welcome. Fantastic pitch, good chats, great situation, perfect CL. Hygiene very, very good - sanitisers everywhere. Jean and Derrick deserve a CAMC award for their continued dedication for giving us (and everyone else too) the perfect getaway. Very much look forward to our next visit.

Fantastic location

Roxton
We've just had a 3 night stay here and it was superb. Jean and Derrick are the welcoming owners and the site is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs which is lovely. It's very peaceful, and the location is perfect. Just a short walk down the lane you're on the river bank with fab views of the Bridge. Part of the Viking Way, the footpaths both ways are well maintained for walking or cycling. We walked for miles in both directions and there are plenty of different routes by the nature reserves. Lots of fishing available in the area. There's a Tesco by Ropewalk, a Co-op in Barton and The Haven Inn bar and restaurant is a 15-20 minute walk away. There's so much to explore and Roxton is a perfect base. We will definitely be back.

Peaceful site near the Humber

Roxton
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

Roxton
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.
