The caravan site is adjacent to the village of Greetham, through which the Viking Way and various other footpath networks pleasantly meander. The village offers three traditional pubs serving hearty food, as well as fun activities which include tennis and badminton courts, a bowling green, pentanque, football, cricket and a children's play area.

Looks Good But Needs WOrk

We stayed for two nights. It was very noisy, apart from the church bells which are part of the character, the adjacent farms and industry was noisy during the day, and at night there were several campers with televisions in awnings on loudly until past 11 with no sign of this being policed. If it had been one person I would have spoken to them myself, however it seemed to be accepted practice. Nice childrens play area but expensive pool (£4 per adult for 30 mins). The shower and toilet facilities had peeling paint and rusty radiators that were on full blast even though the day time temperature outside was 30degC. I mentioned this at reception, they said 'thats the way the owner has it, thats the way it is'. You would think the opportunity to save on heating bills during hot would be attractive to the owner, not to mention the social responsibility to save energy. The surrounding area once you leave site is lovely as is Greetham Village itself, its a shame that something seems to have happened here as older reviews are favorable, but more recent visitors have found it disappointing. Not the standard I would look for from a C&MC affiliated site.

Promises so much.

Lovely looking site, great walks and facilities and in a nice area, but..... The Church bell rang hourly 24/7, making it hard for light sleepers to drop off, we were told "Thats village life" oddly enough our area does not do the same thing with the bells. We were in the adults area, shame so many children kept riding through on cycles unchallenged, yet someone with a babe in arms was challenged? Swimming.....if you want to pay a fortune then go for it, the swimming is over-priced and one is better off visiting Municipal pools locally. Our neighbours had booked a hardstanding pitch months before their arrival, guess what they got a grass pitch.. The shower blocks whilst looking fantastic and clean, are poorly designed, my clothes got damp whilst showering as water splash was everywhere, the ladies seemed to flood during showering as the water flowed away from the plugholes, or they were blocked. This place has so much potential, hopefully it can fulfill it one day.

Would have stayed BUT!

Booked to stay from 11th for 6 nights. On 7th I was informed that a hospital appointment had been brought forward. I contacted the site by phone to shorten our visit to 4 nights. I was informed that the price quoted for 6 nights would not be reduced as this was their policy. I was disgusted and even though the lady on the phone said she would have a word with the boss because of the circumstances I was so annoyed that I rang back later and cancelled the whole stay. Of course I forfeited my £20 deposit but no way was I paying for 6 nights to stay 4.

Never Again.

Visited this site over the Easter weekend, this was our first and will be our last visit. We had power cuts throughout the weekend and got told a different story every time we rang reception to see what was happening. Not once throughout the weekend were we contacted by anyone on site to explain what the issue was with the power supply. Some of the wardens were very rude with one on Saturday night saying if you are not happy why don't you just go home. This is not the kind of attitude you expect on a site you are paying over £30 a night for. The charges for the pool are very expensive and the showers in the pool area did not work when we visited on Sunday. The approach road is a complete joke, single track( although they have started to widen it in places) riddled with potholes and flooded for most of the way down. The location of the site is excellent with easy access to the village and surrounding areas but the customer service falls well below the normal standard of caravan club sites.

Disappointed

My wife and I have stayed at this site many times, mainly in summer and found In the past everything to fine and in working order, with staff both helpful and respectful. Having stayed here over Easter we had power cuts, lasting for sometimes hours ( back up generators not working also). We had a water shortage on Sunday ( if this was your idea of a April fool, it was not funny).Pipes where freezing on serviced pitches because there was insufficient protection from the cold.Road towards the site is appalling but in their defence it does look like they are trying to sort it out .Communication between staff and paying guests was terrible . I have never took the time to write a review of any kind but felt it had to change. The site needs to improve before we think about coming back again especially in winter.
