Why stay here ...

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.

Two Visits, More to Come

Milestone Caravan Park

We went to this site as a stopover there and back on our trip to Scotland, we have used Clumber Park in the past but it's closed for refurbishment, I have to say CP will have to look to it's laurel in the future. We thought the site was superb, well kept clean and tidy and the lakes were a lovely setting just to walk around. Looking at the things to do in the area could easily keep us busy for another week, especially finding the brewery next door, within walking distance what more could one ask for. Our thanks go to the reception staff who were most kind and helpful when we had to change our date on the way back. Here's to the next time.

Overnight stop

Milestone Caravan Park
Excellent site. Lovely tidy gardens and lake. Nice walk around the site. Very easy to drive to being just off the A1, but being so close to a major road obviously means traffic noise. However an lovely place to break the journey.

Lovely clean and tidy site. Great location, ideal just off the A1. Easy to book, good pre-trip communication. Friendly welcome from wardens on arrival. Will definitely recommend and use again.

Better than just an overnight stop

Milestone Caravan Park
Stayed for 1 night en route A1(M) southbound. Not our first visit and very happy to return. Ideally located for those transiting the A1 in either direction; however the down-side is that there is a 4 lane motorway nearby which will obviously attract some road noise, which is supressed by a high embankment. Access is excellent from both directions. New arrival and reception area is smart, tidy and spacious. Check in was very simple; staff always friendly, polite and smiling. The site is in a small parkland setting, with fishing lakes, pegodas, pretty and interesting planted areas and plenty of places to wander around or sit on a bench. This is not a field with pitches and pegs! There is no free run dog area within the park but there are plenty of designated dog walks on site and beyond the boundary, a gate to the Carp Fishery and other walks into the countryside where dogs can roam free. Facilities are clean, tidy and plentiful. One small negative is the push button shower and separate payment for use of the hairdryer. The location has been improved with the opening of the Milestone Tap Brewery, literally next door, which offers great street food dining in the evenings and a great choice of drinks. This was very popular so booking is advised. The Brewery and walks sum up the local area; there is not much else apart from a garage selling basic items and a very limited bus service to take you into Grantham/Lincoln. We like this site and have already re-booked for a few days, not just a stop over.

Disappointment

Milestone Caravan Park
We have just had 3 nights at this site, came home yesterday 13th June, according to the government website all shower blocks are now open at all campsites. When we checked in we were told the showers are closed, because every time someone used the shower it had to be cleaned ??? We were not told this when we booked and the 3 days we had there were very hot. The wash cubicles are open so no privacy at all. There was no signs about wearing face masks, no one was wearing face masks in the toilet blocks and a severe lack of hand sanitizer around the site. Not impressed at all so will not be visiting again.
