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.

From North: approximately seven miles south of Markham Moor service area on the A1, about one mile on from the ‘Carlton and Kneesall’ exit, take the exit for ‘Cromwell and Norwell’. At the top of the bridge turn right, then right again and Milestone is 150 yards on the left just before you go back onto the A1. From Newark we are approximately seven miles further north bound on the A1. Look out for the BP petrol station on the left-hand side. About 1 mile after the BP petrol station (after 2n bridge) exit left following signs for ‘Cromwell Gravel Works and Cromwell. Follow the road into the village - the site is situated on the right.

Ideal stop on Great North Road

Once again, we used this as a one night stop-over, the site being literally metres from the A1 North bound. Located behind a high bank which is surprisingly effective as a sound barrier from the busy carriageway, we would still consider this a peaceful site with peripheral noise of the traffic. The site is nicely laid out around a collection of fishing lakes, is well maintained with plenty of opportunity for places to dwell - benches by the lake, seats amongst flower beds etc. Excellent sized hard standing pitches. The site offers a pleasant dog walk around the lakes, which although does not allow for off lead, it does give a pleasant stretch of the legs. For the facilities, these are minimal in number (i.e. only 2 showers per block), one block newer than the other, coin operated hairdryer and push button showers - not ideal or can people not be trusted to turn off the water when finished using the showers. However, there is a separate dog shower cubicle! Would recommend for brief stays rather than long term and we will certainly be using it again on our travels.

One of my favourite sites

Spent the week here, what a gem of a CMC affiliated site, the weather certainly helped too. The site itself is in a great location just off the A1 and a perfect place to stop over if you are travelling long distance from Nortn to South or vice versa. The new wardens are great, very friendly welcome and unlike some other reviews received my email confirmation straight away after booking. The site is immaculately kept, some of the pitches are extremely large, some with there own grass areas too and some nice ones overlooking the lake, which seems to be very popular with the fishermen. You can, in fact, book specific pitches now so the lakeside ones get snapped up. Having had a walk around most of the pitches are great anyway, mostly hard standing but a number of grass ones too, I booked a hardstanding with grass behind, perfect. The showers and toilets are very clean, plenty of free hot water. There is even a laundry and a dog shower room with hot and cold water. I walked the dog walk, even though I don’t have a dog and also walked to Cromwell lock, which is worth a visit. Yes, the site is close to the A1 and you can hear it, but it’s more of a hum in the background which I found I tuned out of, never stopped me getting a good nights sleep either. It’s a great site too if you wish to visit Newark, Lincoln, Nottingham or Sherwood Forest.

One night stop over

We were greeted by a very friendly and helpful warden Our hard standing pitch was near the exit barrier/ water. This meant people walking across our pitch on a regular basis. Because I assume they were too lazy to walk round. The site is very well cared for and does indeed have a good dog walk. Unfortunately the noise from the A1 is loud and constant and I’m hard of hearing, still enough people use the site for long stays/seasonal. As a stop over to break a journey it’s ideal.

Latest bad reviews are inaccurate misleading and unhelpful

I searched for a last minute booking in this area and was put off by the latest negative reviews. (4th and 6th June 2018) Fortunately all other sites were fully booked so we had no other options. I was profoundly impressed by the conditions at the site both in landscaping with large pitches and immaculate toilet facilities. The faint noise from the A1 is hardly detectable and if people walking past your outfit is a problem then surely a Club, Caravan or other is not for you. I had failed to spot the many other positive reviews which are not immediately visible.

Noisy site. No peace.

Arrived on a Friday night lots of people and noise from the A1 . People walking dogs and going fishing and walking to the loo passed my caravan and glaring in as they passed this went on for the whole weekend. Very unfriendly site and people running it. Will not stay again.
