REviews From Campers

A suberbly equipped site with very friendly owners. From receiving a text from Vicky on the day of my arrival, advising me if they were out to pitch up and familiarise myself with the facilities, to her offering us a lift to the railway station for our day out to Cleethorpes.
It is a small site with 6 electric hook-ups. The facilities include toilet, shower, washing-up sink with drainer, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, kettle and toaster. Washing up liquid and other cleaning products are available. Always very clean and plenty of hot water. The shower is like nothing I have ever come across on a campsite before. It has a seat, water jets from above, sides and below, coloured lighting and a radio. There were toiletry products in the shower in case you had forgotton your own. Outside the facilility block is wooden decking with patio furniture. Free wifi is available, so that, coupled with the wonderful shower, has made this site a favourite of my teenage daughter. The owners are campers themselves, so have worked hard to provide every possible thing that a camper could wish for to make a comfortable stay.
Very little road noise here, and quiet at night, it was lovely to lie in my sleeping bag and listen to the owls. The nearby railway is only a local line carrying 2-hourly passenger trains between Barton-upon-Humber and Cleethorpes and there are no trains overnight. We walked to the Thornton Abbey railway station and took a train to Cleethorpes (seaside resort) for the day. Thornton Abbey itself, a British Heritage property, is well worth a visit. If you are going to arrive back in the dark, I would advise taking a torch and wearing a hi-vis vest as there is no footpath.
I can't wait to go back again next year. Pity it is not open all year or I would be there next month for a spot of winter camping and to use the provided washing machine drum fire pit. A great site for a relaxing weekend.

flat pitch easy to pitch good level for the awning. The utility area is excellent especially if you have none in your own unit. The owners were great. We were late arriving and Vicky found time to fetch us a take away. Great little site very nice owners. We will go there again.

The facilities at this small site are excellent and include EHU, chemical waste etc, a brilliant shower, very clean toilet and wash room, pot wash, washing machine, fridge/freezer, microwave, kettle and owners who could not be more helpful and accommodating. They even helped us when we had a problem with our caravan. The site is easily accessed from the main road and the land is level. We only stayed for 2 nights as we were attending a local family party but we will definitely be returning for a longer stay.

Barton upon Humber is 6 miles away and has a tesco's plenty of cafe's and pubs. waterside is worth a visit as well as the ropewalk. local shops in goxhill and barrow on humber. You can walk for miles on the humber bank part of the long distance walk from gunness bridge to cleethorpes. the old Humber Sloop the 'AMY HOWSON' is moored at Barton haven next to Waterside.

We recently stayed at Sycamore cottage caravan and camping site, where we enjoyed the peaceful setting and benefitted from the free facilities which included, kitchen with microwave, kettle, washing machine and fridge freezer, very handy when camping. Outside is a decked area with seating, where we spent a pleasant evening. Our intention was to stay just the one night however, we stayed on an further night before inevitably having to continue with our journey. Ian & Vicky were friendly and accommodating hosts and we will certainly be returning later in the year.
