Premier CL

If there was a Premier league of cos we would include Grove Farm at Kinoulton. Very well maintained. Fine flat grass field, with electric and water points around the field, practical waste facilities and easy access. Plus a friendly owner who gave us fresh tomatoes from his greenhouse. A very pleasant 6 day stay.

An excellent CL for walkers

This was our second stay at Grove Farm and it was just as good as the first. Chris replied quickly to me email request and arrival times etc were confirmed. Upon arrival Chris arrived to greet us and was very welcoming confirming the facilities and there was local factsheet as well with walks, pubs and things to do listed. This site is ideal for walks or bike rides along the Grantham Canal which is why we chose it and the 2 local villages (Hickling and Kinoulton) both have good pubs and there is a nice café in Hickling next to the Canal. In summary a great little CL, friendly hosts and a nice relaxing location. We are already planning to stay again hopefully in the next couple of months.

Really nice site - will come back

This is a very nice site in a beautiful part of the South Notts Countryside. We were here just for one night, wish it could have been more. Chris very welcoming. The information sheet given to us on arrival was very useful. The CL is grass; well maintained and level. As we were the only people on the site we were offered gravel hard standing which was fine for us. There is a nice walk to Hickling and along the towpath of the Grantham canal, at the wharf there is a cafe and a decent pub opposite which I guess is lively later in the year. At Kinoulton there is another pub. Nottingham, West Bridgford very close by for all their attractions; this place is ideal for Trent Bridge Cricket ground!

Countryside Site

We stayed here for one night as we had swapped our motorhome for a different one and wanted to test everything whilst being near to the dealer we bought from. Warm welcome form Chris and helpful advice, The site is adjacent to a country road but we were not disturbed by traffic at all. Easy access to major roads into Leicester and Nottingham. Note this site does not have a shower, there is a toilet and wash basin only. The site is gated and each pitch has a key for the gate. One of the nearby pubs has shut but in the opposite direction, a 10 minute walk, in Hickling, is the Plough Inn, we were made very welcome and chose ribs from the menu, they came with chunky slaw, great chips and battered onion rings, absolutely delicious and a generous helping. Great choice of beers and drinks, there is a pizza menu and they do takeaway pizzas, recommend this pub. There seem to be lots of lovely walks nearby and there is also a tearoom in Hickling. Opposite the pub is Hickling Basin which is part of the Grantham Canal, very pretty with resident ducks and swans

Excellent 3 night stay

Just spent a pleasant 3 nights at Grove farm chilling out. Upon arriving on site Chris could not of been more helpful and the onsite facilities are very good including freshly mowed grass and nice level pitches. Chris has thought of everything from your own gate key (nice to know all is secure when you are away from site) to an information sheet with a couple of local walks and places of interest. Nice coffee shop beside the canal in Hickling and pub opposite all within a 10 mins walking distance from site. Thanks again Chris we hope to return again soon.

Top CL & Top Owner too.

Late posting review due to tech hitch ! Arrived in pouring rain on Good Friday, Chris was waiting for us, said would we mind hard standing, due to really wet field, fine for us and our friends, he sorted electrics etc (even offers free WiFi) and was always on hand to help anyone. Like other reviewers, we tried The Plough pub, the Canal walks and the Canal Basin Cafe - all good. Had a great long weekend, and no mud ! Thanks Chris.

Top Site

Not an area we would normally visit but the close proximity of the Grantham Canal was the deciding factor. What can I say? A great welcome to a great site. Not a single thing to talk down. I had been impressed with the way Chris helped others when assistance needed little realising that I would also need his support! The car battery failed on the day of our departure but he had us mobile in no time at all. If you are a walker or part time cyclist, like me, then this is the place to go. The well maintained canal tow path provides access to walks / rides of various lengths. Many thanks Chris for a wonderful experience.

A pleasant stay, nice area, good site, warm welcome, thank you

We stayed on this site for five nights. Initially we had booked for four. It is a well run site, in a pleasant area and is fairly priced. Chris the owner, greeted us on our arrival, he explained what was where, gave us an A4 information sheet which outlined areas of interest. That was helpful to us. There is a bus stop, close to the site. We lookede around the church in the village, visited the local pub, The Plough, in Hickling, it was an easy cycle ride to get there. Another time we walked into the village, that too was a comfortable distance. There is a nice tearoom in Hickling, beside the canal basin. We cycled on the canal path which was a pleasure. There is lots of wild life around, plus fishing for those who enjoy that. All in all an enjoyable adventure. We hope to visit again before too long.
