Grownup fishing and grownup stays just seven miles from Skegness: what a lovely Lincolnshire pitstop is Grooby's Pit.

    Well what can I say that's not already been said. What a brilliant site this is. Got a lovely welcome from Tracy on our arrival. Set up was easy because the pitches were large and very level and that is always a bonus.
    Had four day stay at Grooby's Pit and loved everyday. Excellent location for getting out and seeing the surrounding area. Can recommend a trip out to Lincoln City if you have the time.
    Thanks Tracy and Neil your hard work pays off with a spotless shower block and the grounds kept in a excellent condition.The shower and washing facilities are the best I have used.
    I am not much of a review writer but this site is definitely well worth a visit and would recommend it to anyone who wants total peace and relaxation.
    Will definitely make a return visit.

  • Liked: 

    Absolutely lovely site.
    Flat, easy to drive in and move around. Each pitch gravelled. Own water tap and electric hook-up.
    Wonderfully quiet - adults only, I presume because of the lake.
    Spotlessly clean and warm toilets and showers.
    Very welcoming host.
    Handy for the coast. Brilliant for star-gazers.
    Loved the ducks and geese!

    Disliked: 

    Nothing!
    Only slight, possible issue - for those rare individuals like myself with a particular medical condition involving internal re-plumbing, it would be useful to have one toilet cubicle that has a hand basin included. But this is luxury......

From the manager...

Hello Fiona & Richard,

Thank you for your wonderful review & taking the time to write it. We really do appreciate it. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.
The new toilet/shower block that the camping pod & seasonal customers use is all in one, like the one you wish for ... It is something to think about for future toilet/shower block for touring customers :)
Kind regards,
Tracy & Neil Murten

    Groobys Pit is a fantastic caravan site. the site toilets and showers are heated and spotlessly clean. Tracy and Neil were very nice and helpful. Couldn't wish for better hosts. Would recommend this site to the mature couple as its very quiet set in a lovely area around the fishing lakes and its for adults only. Differently worth another visit later on in the year, could not fault anything about this place gets a 100/100 from us.

    Absolutely everything about our stay. Tracy and Neil have a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude. From the moment we arrived - met by Tracy - who welcomed us by our first names - to the end of our stay. Both Tracy and Neil took time out of their busy day to catch up with people on site - and always knew everyone's names. Fantastic site - toilet and shower facilities spotless. Hubby fished most days - ponds on site are well stocked and fish are in excellent condition. Even the chickens, geese and ducks roaming freely on site were a delight to watch. If you are wanting a lovely relaxing site, in a fab location - with first class owners - Groobys Pit is it. We will most certainly be back.

    We are newbies at motor homing and are very much feeling our feet at the moment.
