Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Swift Kontiki 669 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

Grass.  Pitch determined by where electric is.  Decent size and fairly level – we didn’t need any blocks

Is there water on each pitch?            

There is a tap shared between every 2 pitches

What is the electric like?           

10A– we had no problems.

Drainage?     

Drain in the corner by pitch no. 7

What’s the site access like?        

Good access from the road.  However, on approaching you can’t see the entrance until you get to it!  Although there is a sign pointing you onto Brant Road, there isn’t any indicator opposite the site entrance itself.

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Toilets:                              Gents and ladies – 2 cubicles in each

The toilets aren’t dirty, but weren’t cleaned whilst we were there – except when Calv took our brush down there and swept them out himself that is…

Toilet paper provided? Yes                                                                                                                   Showers:                          1 large shower in the ladies and the gents.  Calv said it was a brilliant shower, large and powerful

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD

A fishing lake, which is also pleasant to walk around

No internet on site, but very good signal if you have your own.

Don’t necessarily to see anybody immediately – just park up and wait; the lady managing the site will come to see you

How much is it?     

We paid £15 per night including electric.

What’s the area like?            

This is a lovely area.  We visited as we have family in the area (Caythorpe/Frieston – the next 2 villages along the road).  Fulbeck is very pretty, and (I know I’m biased) Caythorpe is pretty special too 🙂  The other villages along the A607 towards Lincoln are also very pretty.

More detail:

 

We liked:-

The area

The walk around the lake

The green building on site, which looks dilapidated – it was actually the home of a single prisoner of war in WWII!

We didn’t like so much:-

The facilities could do with being cleaned more often

The access onto the field needs to be smoothed out a bit – you need to be careful, going on 1 wheel at a time!

We hated:-

Nothing

Moving On:

We headed to the Lincolnshire coast
