A lovely site

I am also glad I didn't take notice of previous reviews. Nearly cancelled at last minute. Stayed for 3 nights good sized pitches fully serviced which we weren't expecting but that seems the norm. Placed near to excellent dog walk, pitch 19 adults only side. Facilities seemed new and very clean and warm. Yes the clock chimes throughout the night but it didn't keep us awake. 5 mins into village with 2 pubs. Overall a good site for walking and relaxing with plenty to see and do. Will definitely visit again.

Glad I don’t always read reviews!

What a great site, and am glad that I don’t always read previous reviews. It was easy to find off the A1, and although we only had one night, and we would certainly call again. We were allocated a pitch, which is what happens at “the other club”. Nice big pitches with its own water supply. The facilities were very clean, and lovely big showers, with proper hot water controls, none of the push button stuff, and there was even a shower for the dogs, which ours used. There was a big dog walk, and the village of Greetham, with a shop and pubs, was less than 2 minutes away. The church bells chimed, although we didn’t hear them after midnight, probably asleep. Finally the staff, lovely and cheery. We couldn’t have asked for anymore.

disappointed

Booked on this site just for 4 nights for a last trip before putting van in storage for winter, and was considering leaving after the first. Was allocated a pitch opposite the toilet block, I am in a trailer tent with just cotton curtains so the lights shining into the van made it like daytime (lights are all around the side of building not just on corner posts like most sites) the church clock chimed every hour all through the night and when the dogs woke me at 5 couldn't go for a walk outside as the 'barriers' are not opened till 7.30 swimming pool is £4 for half an hour! wifi was £8 for 3 days, and only 10amp hook up and the whole site tripping. Will stick to club sites in future and wont be back here

Very poor site

We stored our caravan here for some years, from not long after it opened until last year. We visited many times and witnessed first hand as the site deteriorated in almost every aspect. Firstly, its an affiliated site. Not owned or run by the club, so thats the first warning sign. The guy that actually owns it also owns the surrounding buldings, noisy workshops and farm. Each visit felt like he had added yet another new rule to control us. Almost every alteration or update to the site is done ‘on the cheap’ using second hand materials. Scalpings for the drive areas and old gpo posts as fence posts etc. Electricity is supplied by ‘ole smokey’, the wood fired generator opposite reception, which burns old oily pallets returned to the workshop adjacent the site. We soon learnt to pitch as far as possible away, cos on a bad day with the wind in the wrong direction you could hardly breath. They also reduced the EHU supplys from 16A to 10A one year, causing no end of trips on winter visits. Something they denied, but everyone we spoke to had the same issue, which had not happened before. The site goes into lockdown at night, with massive gates lockng you in or out after 11pm. Supposedly theres no movements allowed after this. With all the driveways made of loose scalpings any movement is very noisy. My sister stayed one weekend with the rally field being used by a motoring club that continued running engines late into the night, with no sign of the wardens stepping in. Having the large storage compound along with being open all year was a great attraction to us, but again we learnt not to pitch in the rows between the entrances or next to the compund gate, as theres a constant number of vans coming and going from the compound all day every day. We used the site during the swimmng pool and chalets build, putting up with lots more noise. But were never able to use the pool due to the rediculous booking system and it’s excessive cost. Another costcutting exercise as they won’t employ a lifeguard and just open the pool for general use, so instead you buy a time slot for private use. We’d stopped using the site by the time the toilet block extension build happened, but my sister did, although it was the last straw for her, hence we removed our van from the store, and will never visit again. Almost any site is better than here. But if you do go, make sure you get a pitch as far from reception as possible. We favoured far left near the bells, which never actually bothered us. But far top right would do if youve got kids. Oh and the eggs in reception are not free range. We accidentally stumbled upon the chicken sheds on a walk one day, and they’re definitely not out in the open.

Bit Dissapointed

This is the first CL for us. Allocated pitch which is ok but a bit unusual. The facilities had recently been renovated and were very clean. Location is good for a walk to the village which is nice, lovely pub which did good food and dog friendly. Quite close to some kind of heavy plant which was operational on the Friday and very noisy. Major disappointment was the electric hookup. Ok whilst we were the only ones plugged in but as soon as neighbours plugged in the electrics kept tripping the fuse. Couldn’t even boil a kettle and had to revert to boiling water on the gas cooker. Not really acceptable in this day and age and clearly needs upgrading.
