Historic Gainsborough old hall is 5 miles, Lincoln which is only 12miles away, with a 12th century Cathedral, and Norman Castle. Good shopping and eating places, Lincolnshire showground is only 9 miles, with antique fairs and steam shows.

Our CL is set on a small lawned field, with open views. The River Trent is only a short walk away with footpaths along its banks. We also have a 900 year old saxon Church and a small shop in the village.

Classic CL

We used this as an overnight stop prior to having our motorhome serviced at Brownhills in Newark. This site is a gem, lovely walks by the Trent, close to the village and totally peaceful. The site is all grass and it was a dry spell when we were there so no problems. It is an enclosed paddock beyond the Manor House garden with water and CDP and open countryside around it. It is a site we expect to use again.

Very nice site

Terry and Ann run this lovely, quiet site, they offer a warm welcome and friendly chat. The site has views over open countryside with the "pet" sheep in the adjoining field and Thomas the horse in the other. We have stayed at this site quite a few times and always had a great time.

Our Home from Home!!

This lovely site is our home from home as it only a stones throw away from where we live! To come and stay at this site is truly a little bit of (local) heaven for us. Access to the site can be a little tight if you don't take a wide swing in, so just be aware of this. The owners, Terry and Ann, are welcoming, chatty and very approachable. Their dog, Tina, is also a regular out and about with them but she is well controlled and never left to roam on the site and therefore doesn't bother our dogs which are tethered and never off-lead on the site. There are half a dozen chickens that roam freely throughout the site and they love to meet and greet at the gate :-) If they're laying, eggs can be available to buy too. We stay here regularly as just ourselves, but sometimes as 2 or 3 vans with our friends and family.  The site overlooks fields and even the power station in the distance is not offensive to the eye! (Or is that just me?) It also backs on to the village playing field which on occasion does host Rallies but this doesn't, in our experience, tend to impact too much on the CL. For those coming from further afield, this is a well located site for those who want to explore and visit some of the local area. Gainsborough, Lincoln, Scunthorpe, Retford, Bawtry and Doncaster are all within easy travelling with a bus running straight through the village to Lincoln and Gainsborough. The other destinations mentioned can all be reached by buses from Gainsborough if you don't want to drive. Nearest supermarkets are in Gainsborough (3-4 miles).  This is a lovely non-EHU, no frills, pretty and relaxing gem of a site. We LOVE it!!

Our First CL

New to Motorhoming we have tried some club sites then used the Manor House as our first CL, stopping off on our way home after the Motorhome show at Lincoln show ground.  We were greatly impressed, will return and will try more CLs.  Terry and Ann made us very welcome. Chickens greeted us once we were parked and were not bothered by our dog. Plenty of space in a very pleasant and secluded field. Dog enjoyed his walk to the river. Pleased we joined the Caravan Club.

Our Favourite Site

We've been regularly visiting this site over the last few years and we love it. The site is quiet, level and clean with regularly cut grass. There are lovely views over the open countryside, where you can often see a variety of wildlife as well as resident chickens, sheep and seasonal donkeys. The owners, Ann and Terry, are always welcoming and helpful, as these caravaners can testify having once turned up and stayed when there was a foot of snow on the ground. Thanks for helping us get off site Terry. Gainsborough and Lincoln are both within easy access, each having a variety of things to do and see. A lovely, relaxing and peaceful site to visit and stay at.
