One we will visit again

We stayed here for a couple of days specifically to visit Stamford and Burghley House, both of which will need further visits to appreciate all there is on offer. We loved the site. We were on the adults side, which was probably less than half full, although it was the week before August Bank Holiday. We liked the wide green area around the wash block, with its pretty planting and felt that it gave an air of space and light to the site. The wash block was impressive. We have stayed on sites in a number of European countries and several within the UK and felt that these were amongst the best facilities we had seen. We particularly liked the large shower/sink/toilet rooms which meant that you could do everything in one place without moving from area to area. Much more pleasant than the usual CMC facilities. Heated floors made for extra comfort. One of the rooms which I used had a couple of hooks missing and, in general, more hooks would always be welcome - but that is true of pretty well every site we have ever been on. The walk to the village was pleasant and easy to find and we had a lovely meal in The Plough on our first night. We were lucky to get a table, as I think we were a bit early, but it is a very small dining room, so people seem to book. We noticed that the other pub, The Wheatsheaf, had its telephone number on a board outside, but we didn't get the chance to try it out - perhaps next time. The only down side was the smell from fields which had obviously just been dressed prior to ploughing, but we live in the country too and accept that it's a working environment. Pleasant wardens, although I must admit to having problems with the accent of the warden who booked us in, who seemed to speak quite fast, but that's not his problem - it's mine! We didn't bring our dogs this time, because of the places we wanted to visit, but we thought that they would love the dog walking area and we would bring them on another trip. All in all a lovely couple of days and we will come again, especially as it is less than 2 hours from home. We didn't use the pool by the way and wouldn't have done so even if it had been free.
