Wonderful site.

What a lovely surprise to see planes taking off and landing. Peaceful and quiet with lots of space. Woodland walks and lovely countryside. Mt and Mrs Bell couldn't have been more welcoming. Definitely come again.

What no 'planes!!!

Took the grandies again this year as they had such a great time last year. No planes flying as the wind was howling. Well drained site. It poured for 12 hours overnight but dried out by mid morning. Peace and quiet plus plenty of room for kids to run around. On the annual pilgrimage trail.

Absolutely Perfect

Just returned from 3 nights here and had a fantastic break. Owners are lovely people, grounds are nice and spacious with some great views and the walk around the adjacent wood of an evening is delightful. We took our two small children and visited Sundown Adventureland which is only 5 minutes away so the location was brilliant. How fantastic it was to also be next to a grass strip runway for light aircraft fascinating to watch. 10 out of 10 from us and we will definately return here soon.

midweek 2 night break

We`ve just returned after a very peaceful and pleasant stay on this quiet site, nicely cut grass, level pitches, loads of room, easy to explore the area, unfortunately the buses don't come past the site anymore but do from in the village of Treswell, but when we said we were going into Retford the site owner said so was he and gave us a lift right to town centre. The light aircraft occasional coming n going was added interest too. Deffo recommend this one.

Laid back, peace and quiet

We visited this nice CL for the August bank holiday. It was quite close for us which was why we picked it. The owner was very friendly and very helpful. No rush to take payment, very laid back. The site was full but definately not crowded. It's a really big field and pitches are very spacious. It's very handy for Clumber Park, Rufford Abbey and Newstead Abbey. Quite remote, no shops or pubs in walking distance but very peaceful. The toilets are basic but clean. There are no showers but we knew that before we picked it. The highlight for us was being in an airfield, and we had the pleasure of watching a few planes land and take off. Got some great pictures. We would use again but do like to try different areas.
