Excellent CL

We stayed here for 4 nights principally to do some birdwatching on the "Flats" and at the Far Ings nature reserve on the south side of the Humber. The CL met all of our needs.The pitch was hardstanding with adequate space to put an awning up if wanted (we didn't). It's found behind the farm buildings so you have to drive through the farmyard to get to it but there is plenty of space for even the biggest of outfits. We were met by Mrs.Ogg who showed us to the pitches and explained all. Water and electric points are nearby as is the Elsan emptying point, which is shielded behind bushes, a nice touch. There are other bushes around the site with a few picnic tables provided by the friendly hosts. At certain times of the year you may get some noise from the Limousin cattle in the sheds when they are confined to quarters but not a problem. The owners ask that you recycle into the marked bins.There is very little noise from the village itself. The surrounding area is easily accessed with the public footpath down to the flats a mere 50 yards from site entrance, There is a cafe run by the owners at the entrance to the site, usually open from Thursdays to Sundays in season. The only concern we had was on the approach road as indicated in the CMC site guide. There does not appear to be a sign in Burton upon Stather for turning to Alkborough so if coming by this route take the lane called Tee Lane, the second to last left hand turn before leaving the village. This road becomes narrow in places with several tight corners and can seem an age before arriving in Alkborough. We decided to leave by travelling towards Winterton, straight across from Back Lane, which has a much shorter stretch of poor road before hitting some decent track. It's slightly longer getting back to Scunthorpe for the motorways but much better in my opinion. We will definitely be returning to this excellent CL.
