A lovely site in the countryside

I have just returned from 6 nights at Wagtail country park, from the moment I pulled up at reception I was made to feel welcome. As my husband wasn't staying the full 6 nights with myself and my daughter I was driving his car whilst he was towing the van. Whilst waiting for him to arrive the lovely lady on reception made me a cup of tea and I sat on the bench in the sunshine and waited - best welcome on a campsite ever! The pitches were lovely and big and well spaced out and nicely divided with laurel hedges, the fishing lake was well landscaped with various seating areas dotted around and whilst I'm not into fishing it was lovely to watch the fishermen sitting and waiting for the elusive catch. The elevated dog walk was lovely and gave a lovely view across the countryside in one direction and the campsite in the other- the sunsets were amazing almost every night. The weather was amazing for our week away and I could have happily stayed on site everyday. We visited Grantham and had a walk around the shops and down the lovely quaint back streets, visiting the church and the grave yard to try to find the oldest gravestone - a game we play with our daughter. We visited Belton House - booking your ticket in advance is essential- and spent the day walking through the formal gardens and through the park land to see the herd of deer. We also visited Stamford on Friday - market day, a very good one at that, the town has some gorgeous independent shops as well as the usual high street offerings. The only tricky issue was if coming North on the A1 you had to cross over the oncoming traffic to get back onto the road to the campsite, it would be worth travelling up an extra junction on the A1 and getting onto the southbound carriageway and then just turning off onto the approach road. We will definitely return to the campsite and hope the kettle is boiling and the sun is shining next time as well.
