Why stay here ...

This Affiliated campsite is now open and will be adapted to the new social distancing and safety requirements set out by the UK government. Our priority is first and foremost the health and safety of our staff, our members, our guests and the local communities.

Please Note: We will endeavour to apply a contactless check in wherever possible, however if you have not paid for your stay over the telephone prior to your arrival please come into the reception when you arrive at our site. We are Covid-19 compliant with screens, masks and hand sanitiser etc.

Milestone Caravan Park is a small, pretty and level site with coarse fishing available for the keen angler and a generous picnic area situated next to the lake. For the more experienced, there are also specialist fishing lakes in the village and some stunning scenic walks to take in, which make this caravan site ideal for walkers and anglers alike.

Just five miles north of Newark, the Milestone Caravan Park is nestled on the outskirts of the small village of Cromwell, easily accessible from the A1, both north and south. With much Civil War history on the doorstep, Newark Castle was of particular strategic importance and is well worth a visit. Nottingham, also within easy reach from the caravan site has a more famous castle - complete with tales to tell of the legendary Robin Hood. Another must-see is the annual Robin Hood Festival at Edwinstowe in early August.

Nice site but not quiet

Had a frosty greeting as I received an email telling me I’d receive a call the day before our arrival to take payment over the phone and when you arrive to stay in your car. Never received a call and we stayed in the car for 10 minutes then eventually went in to reception, said I was told to stay in the car and the response was “I’ve been in and out all day n I’m fed up”. Wow. The lady said did you not read your email? I said yes I did thank you and it told me to stay in the car! The site is pretty good. Very clean and tidy and well looked after. Facilities were good, even though not all were open due to Corvid. The site is NOT peaceful, it’s a stones throw from the busy A1 so there is a constant buzz of cars and lorries passing. You are allocated a pitch which was ok for us as we got a relatively good spot but their did seem to be some pitches outside of the barriers? So their not actually on site inside the security barrier but outside.

Excellent sit

This is probably the fourth time we have stayed at this excellent site. It is a very good place to break your journey when travelling south and again returning home. The site is immaculately kept with a fishing lake and beautiful gardens and a lovely dog walk. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly. The pitches and wide and even, and the shower block is clean and tidy. We were lucky enough to meet Nellie (a dachshund) in the office. We would highly recommend this site.

Nice fishing spot

We stayed for one night at the start of our holiday in the South West. My husband enjoyed an afternoon and evening fishing in the scenic lake.The warden allocated us a pitch but when hearing that my husband would be fishing let us use a vacant pitch around the lake which was appreciated. The site itself is pretty and maintained to a very high standard. We were aware of some traffic noise but not enough to spoil the ambience. We would visit again.

Just an Overnight Stop this time

Heading to the Scottish borders, we needed to find an overnight stop on the A1 loosely south of Doncaster. Milestones fitted the bill perfectly and we were not disappointed. We booked an overnight stop with electric and no awning and were given an easily accessible pitch near to the reception building and the loos. We had time for a wander around the site - it is a bit like a floral park with neatly maintained borders and grass areas, plus fishing lakes. Would happily stay here again, but next time I'll make it a couple of nights and explore what the area has to offer. Access is off an old section of the Great North Road that has been bypassed by the new A1 that runs parallel. There is an access to the south and also to the north. I'd suggest using the north access (after the BP garage when heading north) and coming back on yourself a little as the road to the south appears to be used as a layby for lorries and looks to have a rough surface. The downside of being close to the A1 is that it is a busy road 24 hours a day, so there is always some background noise. But as it is constant, you soon get used to it and block it out
