Good overnight location

The Laurels
Only spent one night as a quick weekend getaway. Well run and friendly owners. Toilets and shower rooms were well maintained and clean, a bonus point from me. Don’t like the 50p machine idea for the shower but not a real issue (especially as I had some change). Their is food bar (Munch Box) on site, We didn’t use it, but plenty did, and the menu looked good. To some might be a blessing on a quick stop over if you don’t want to cook and fancy a snack. Local lakes for fishing onsite, not my scene but looked tranquil. Disappointingly the dog walk was just a single mown track along the side of the campsite. Peaceful but pity didn’t go further and not a great deal on the scenery but hey, that’s just the location not a site fault. That all said, if we were that way, most certainly could stay again.

Fabulous Well Maintained Site

The Laurels
Lincolnshire is a new area for us but having found it so difficult to make any bookings anywhere this year, I chanced upon this site one cold wet Sunday afternoon and made an on line booking for 14 nights. The on line booking system was incredibly easy to use and we welcomed the opportunity to pay a £20.00 deposit prior to our arrival. Why on earth all CAMC sites don't insist upon this, I have no idea...but I digress. Having some of the reviews of the site, we weren't really sure what to expect and although i agree with some of the fellow reviewers about the state of the suggested final approach road recommended by the CAMC, I think other comments are outdated. We stayed on a hard standing pitch on the Certificated Location part of the site. It had its own electricity point and the fresh water and chemical disposal point was in very close proximity. Our pitch accommodated our car and caravan and there was room to pitch our Kampa awning. The pitch was totally flat and immaculately kept. We were in a bay of two caravans surrounded by laurel hedges. The site itself was very quiet - no signs or evidence of chickens at all - and the facilities were superbly maintained - always clean and properly maintained. The CL has its own little facility block consisting of two toilets and washbasins, one of which also contains a very spacious shower (50p for a very adequate supply of hot water) although there are additional facility blocks elsewhere on the park which you are welcome to use. There is also a laundry room and an on site snack van providing a variety of drinks and snacks during the day. There were nice walks to the two fishing lakes on site and we took advantage of the location to visit some interesting places that we found worthy of a viste. These included Lincoln Cathedral, the huge Saturday car boot sale at Stickney and the Clare Boam Antique Centre at Horncastle. "Skegvegas" isn't really our type of place but we enjoyed walking along the prom and found great beaches at Huttoft Car Terrace and Anderby Creek. The owners were pleasant and helpful without being intrusive and the site was superb value for money. We would definitely recommend it and hope to return in the future. Two points worthy of consideration: We'd recommend avoiding the approach road by driving into Skegness and then taking the A52 to Ingoldmells, turning left at the Green Acres campsite. It's a much better road! We'd also suggest to fellow members staying on the CL to note which of the two water hoses at the water point is used to fill the Aquaroll - the other being used to rinse out the Wastemaster and chemical toilet. There are signs .....but they are not very big and in our opinion, are not sited in the best position. Such minor observations, should not detract from the qualities the site has to offer. It is a real credit to the owners and well worth a visit.

What a change!

The Laurels
We last visited this site in 2007 when it really was a 5 van site! I agree with aalg425 about all the changes, it really is part and parcel of what is now a commercial site. Members booking on the CL can use all the site facilities. Nevertheless it is a well run site which, if visiting the area, I would use again in spite of the £25p.n charge over the school holidays for my large motorhome . It is just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the coastal attractions not to be inconvenient. In my view the site is best accessed via Orby and Addlethorpe from the A158. If coming from the A52 I would also come through Addlethorpe.

Positives and negatives......

The Laurels
Whilst we have stayed here before (reviewed August 2015) - to see the changes this summer was amazing. The owners have worked really hard to create a clean, well serviced and friendly site. However - the club handbook does not make mention that the CL here is adjacent to a large commercial site. And, as per previous reviews, the CL is set up for 9 pitches (we had 7 on for a couple of nights during our stay). In saying this - the pitches are well spaced, level and have easy access to the service point. There are toilets available to use and showers / laundry and a small cost. Easy access to all of Skegness' attractions. The road in from the A158 is a little hair-raising in places - very uneven!! So - great site, but not necessarily a tranquil CL if that's what you're looking for!

A disappointment.

The Laurels
This was indeed very lovely site with beautifully laid out hard standing pitches. Very friendly welcoming owners. However, for us, it was a disappointment. The quoted charge per day is £16 but this refers to caravans. Motorhomes are charged £25, though we managed to get this down to £22 after speaking to the owner Neil. We apparently use more electric and fill our big water tanks up! As always, and as the Club says, check the price when you book, do not rely on the quoted figures. I wish we'd checked.
