We spent 2 nights at this CL - long enough to find some problems that we would work at solving next time we visit! As stated in another review, you pass the owners home about 300 yards before you reach the CL entrance. We arrived to find all 5 pitches occupied but only had to wait 15 minutes before we could set up. However, 2 more units that arrived behind us had longer waits! It's a sign that the site is well used but also a little chaotic at times - make sure you give a time of arrival when booking is our advice! Pitches 2, 3, 4 and 5 are all ideal for catching the sun most of the day but steer clear of pitch 1 - unless like us there is no choice! 1 is in the shadow of a hedge and under two enormous trees that drop bits constantly meaning that it is very unwise to open roof lights for fear of damaging the fly screens. The grass could have been a little shorter but we did visit at the end of a week of heavy rain. There is easy access to water and chemical disposal; there are 3 dustbins but no on site recycling. Turn right out of the site for a dog walk down the lane but be aware that there can be heavy farm vehicles running up and down at times. We walked in to Horncastle (there is a decent size Tesco on the way) and another day we walked across the fields to West Ashby and a welcome drink at the West Ashby Arms - they serve food but we didn't partake.
