The grassy paddock is open and surrounded by hedges and mature trees, providing guests with plenty of space to spread out.

Friendly dogs are welcome throughout the year.

    Lovely site, very scenic. Felt safe as site has security gate so didn't feel vulnerable. New shower facilities being put in ready for our next visit. Toilet facilities in nice block and close to pitches.

    Disliked: 

    Only issue was shower block not fully in working order due to refurbishment.

    Loved the rural, quiet position overlooking green fields and the beautiful River Trent across the road. Great walks along the river with our dog. Also great places to eat within easy walking distance. There are no facilities except a toilet in an unfinished toilet/shower block, but fortunately we were totally self-sufficient in our caravan.

  • Liked: 

    Beautiful pitch - blossom trees, cows in next field, pub next door, river outside, secure entry, easy to find, laid back and left to get and enjoy our weekend.

    Disliked: 

    Toilets - however we were made aware of lack of facilities and although not a problem for us as we only stayed 2 nights I would wait to return until the showers have been completed.
    Only 1 bin for whole site - standard size wheelie bin- over flowing when we left.

    The beautiful quiet surroundings with blossom trees! Code controlled gate ensured privacy.

    Disliked: 

    Not even half-finished toilet/shower block, so disappointed. £20 for a one night non-electric pitch and no real washing facilities is not really acceptable. When completed it will be a stunning site. I will check to see if it's completed before contemplating a return visit.

    Really good location on the banks of the river Trent close to restaurants. The camping field is quiet and secure with gated access. The friendly owner came to check I was settled in okay and explain where the loo and water point were.

Good position but too basic for price. 04/09/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom rob m. Confirmed

  • Non-electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The level field and the location near to but not adjacent to the river Trent and its bankside walks. The ease of booking. For short stays its OK.

    Disliked: 

    Not being greeted on arrival.
    Having no wash basin in the shed/outhouse containing the one toilet for the site.
    Having no toilet paper available when visiting the loo.
    The cost was way too high for the site with so few even basic hygienic faculties and our experience is that similar costing sites provide far more facilities.We knew the site had no electrics or a shower but we expect a wash basin near to a toilet and also toilet paper to be available.
    The pictures on the web site indicate a site that might be bang on the river bank . It isn't and a road is to be crossed to access the river.
    The one Waste bin for the field was overflowing on our departure.
