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.

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

Great site

This was our first vsit to this site but it won't be our last. Unusually pitches are assigned but you can select an arae to be in. take our advice and ask for the lake. These pitches overlook two small but beautifully landscaped fishing lakes and, so you get the best from it, they ask that you pitch nose in. This means that the first thing you see in the morning are the lakes. Beautiful area as well with a variety of National; Trust proeprties to visit as well as historic town such as Newark an Lincoln. We would definately recommend a visit to The Workhouse at Southwell as we as the Minster. We will definately be going back to this site. Jane and Tony

What a treat

This site was really good. It was well maintained, toilet block to a high standard, staff very friendly and very helpful. Bus to Newark just outside the campsite. The lanes were quiet enough to cycle and walk safely. Nearby Norwell village shop was well stocked and had a coffee machine that made wonderful coffee. The people here were friendly also. Walked and cycled along the River Trent. Its only downside was being near the A1 which was at times noisy, but it would not stop us going again.
