Good for families

Decent site but a bit isolated

This is a good site with large flat pitches. Actually, the pitches are huge compared to the standard CAMC sites and are generally separated by hedges. The site is approached via the A1 (those coming from the South can play Russian Roulette by turning across the traffic or go beyond the turning for 2 miles and come down to make an easier turn into the lane). Once off the A1, the roads get quite narrow and the last lane to the site has passing places but the road surface is pretty poor & you'll not like putting your wheels at the mercy of the ruts at the edge of the track. This is especially important as the site had at least one 'monster' rig in place - I wouldn't want to meet it coming the other way. The site is set in an agricultural area and everything thing around seems to be very, very flat. Entrance to the site is signposted and easy to find. The staff were very welcoming and you are allocated a pitch on arrival (there are surcharges for lakeside pitches etc). There is some background noise from the A1 (which is quite close to the site) but nothing too bad. The lure of the site seems to be fishing and there are 2-3 large lakes on site. You'll have to drive anywhere for anything, but if you are looking for a meal The Stag at Barkton is excellent (dog-friendly in the bar area - book ahead). The site is open all year but I'd imagine it'll be pretty raw in the winter months. Facilities are good, perhaps better than some CAMC sites but there is a lack of refuse bins across the site.. .don't ask me why.. So nothing wrong with this site at all but there again if you are not into fishing there may be more 'connected' sites to stay at.
