EXCELLENT FOR FISHING ENTHUSIASTS23/09/2020

Reviewer's country: United KingdomDiane F.Confirmed

  • Electric grass touring pitch (lake view)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Beautiful small well kept site looking onto fishing lake. 2 Brand New shower \ toilet facility, excellent water power and nice and warm. Friendly wardens.
    Reasonably priced.
    Excellent pub Nags Head in Harby about 6 miles away, best Sunday dinner we've had.
    Wanted to visit Belvoir Castle and Museum in Loughborogh but both only open Wed-Sun. Need to check opening times!!!

    Disliked: 

    didn't find anywhere within walking distance. But overall fishing lakes site was large enough for a little walk after 5pm when fishing finished.
    Can be subject to traffic noise certain times of day.

  • Electric asphalt and grass touring pitch (lake view)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Excellent site especially if you love fishing. Very friendly and helpful wardens.
    Set in the countryside with plenty of nearby walks, and the lovely village of Redmile just a few minutes drive away where you can visit The Windmill pub famed for its scenes in Auf Weidersen Pet. The lunchtime menu was excellent value for money and the food was delicious.
    The toilets/showers are a brand new purpose built pod which means when you go for a shower you get your own WC and wash basin too, with ample room to get dry and dressed.
    The fishing here is second to none. Our hard standing pitch literally had a fishing peg in front of it and I have never caught such a large array of decent sized fish in my life. From Barbel to ghost mirror carp, tench etc you literally have to stop to take a breather. We’ll definitely be visiting this site again. A+++
