A tad disappointing

Grange Farm
This site was extremely peaceful and quiet and we had a great few days unwinding and relaxing in our van. Not too far from Lincoln where we had a lovely afternoon. However, when we arrived in Friday night at the beginning of the bank holiday weekend there were already 7! other vans here. Due to the poor positioning of both electric points and other caravans we we in a corner quite close to two other vans whereas the other vans basked in loads of space. We found this a little annoying but if that kind of thing does not bother you this site is fine. We have stayed at many cl’s over the years, perhaps we’ve been lucky but this is the first time we have seen owners blatantly ignoring the 5 van rule or where we have had to leave a negative review. I think one other reviewer below mentions this issue too. The owner had the opportunity in emails to declare this to us and didn’t. At the very least they need to make clear to people before they come how many vans will be on site because some of us choose cl’s for the very fact there are just 5 vans. This site would have been lovely and spacious with just 5 and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. It was apparent that one or two pitches were either permanent or semi-permanent too. One family next to us were staying in a van that belonged to someone else in the family and had driven to the caravan before leaving it there. Overall disappointing, owners need to be a little more honest.

Lovely site

Grange Farm
we are new to caravanning and decided to make this our first trip and we were not disappointed. Lovely friendly and helpful people, very relaxed about arrival and leaving times. Dogs welcome. Beautiful area and plenty of places to visit nearby. The village of Thorney is really pretty and a very pleasant walk. Since our first visit we have returned once more and will be back again! thank you

We have been visiting this CL for 30 years now and still love it ! Peaceful even though it's a working farm which by the way is spotless. Roger, Rita and Chris couldn't be more helpful. The site is large for a CL with numerous 16 amp hook ups giving plenty of choice to site your units. Close to Lincoln, Scampton, all supermarkets and 10 minutes to Saxilby and the railway station. Well kept mowed grass and amenities water, waste disposal etc., What more could one require ? I can guarantee you will not be disappointed. Two wonderful fishing lakes close by set in equally beautiful surroundings. An abundance of wildlife visits the CL daily. A great CL if you want peace and tranquility.

Spacious and Quiet

Grange Farm
We spent a few nights at this CL in August, it was easy to find and the access is good. The pitching area is huge and the hook ups are spaced out around the edges of the field so caravans can be pitched anyway and still have loads of room. The field is level (no blocks required) and grass was short. There is one tap near the entrance and a good cdp in the bottom corner. The owners also have some fishing lakes which can be fished and also can be walked round, there are plenty of foot paths too for dog walks locally. The field doesn't have any views as it is surrounded by hedge or farm buildings but it was very quiet, Lincoln is close by and we visited Whisby and also Sherwood forest. Our only criticism is that there were 8 vans on site for a couple of nights, we had minimal contact with the owner's so not sure if this happens regularly or was a one off.

We had not stayed at Grange Farm before and we were not disappointed. The site was immaculate from the mowed pitches to the ease of recycling and waste disposal. The distancing between each outfit was more than enough in fact much more than enough! We received a warm welcome on arrival and Mrs Oates was very informative. The site itself is within easy reach of Lincoln, Newark and other places of interest, Whisby wildlife park is a lovely place to visit and have a good walk around the various lakes. All in all we enjoyed our stay and along with the peace and quiet it was just what we needed, Thank you Mr and Mrs Oates, Elaine and Dennis Knowles Visited 05/07/2020
