Harwell House what a great find

A lovely well kept site. Friendly warm welcome from Mrs Drury. This small site has been so well organised and set out it is a credit to Mr and Mrs Drury. Situated on the edge of a pretty small village with lovely country views. A site well worth visiting. We will definitely return. Thank you so much.

Peace and Quiet

Visited June 16. We were greeted upon arrival and received a warm welcome from Mrs Drury who showed us the facilities.This site is beautiful and quiet. Lovely large field that is slightly sloping. The grass was well cut and everywhere was clean, tidy and well maintained. We didn't need levelling blocks but you may need them in other parts of the field. All we could hear were the birds and had the site all to ourselves for the weekend. A short walk down a very quiet road leads you to Chesterfield canal (again, very picturesque). We walked to Clayworth on Saturday and the end of the canal at Misterton/Stockwith on Sunday. Gringley has a pub with a lovely beer garden (handy when you have a dog). We ate out in Bawtry (The Ship Inn - 10mins by car) and Everton (The Sun Inn - 5mins by car). Both served excellent meals. We don't usually go away for weekends but this site was close to home and we will certainly try to visit again very soon.

A Lovely Find!

Looking for another 'Close to Home' escape, we came across this site and what a lovely site it is! Janet is a wonderfully warm and welcoming lady who seemed genuinely delighted to greet new visitors. There is a one-way system for entry and exit but be warned- although not too tight, you do need a wide swing if you want to be confident of clearing the walls either side of the entrance with ease.  The site itself is sloping (you will need a leveller) and the ground quite soft (there had been some rain) but this caused no issue to us. We were 2 caravans for 4 nights. The site is well-tended and peaceful, with some great views. Situated near the Chesterfield Canal there are plenty of public footpaths across country to follow (with or without a dog) and Retford, Gainsborough, Bawtry and Doncaster are all within easy access by car or bus. Although soon to close for the winter, we have already assured Janet that she has not seen the last of us and that we, along with our friends and family, will definitely be repeat visitors from Spring 2016!
