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?                

Mix of grass and hard-standings (tents are allowed).  Ample room on the pitch to put out our shade and mat and to park the car

Is there water on each pitch?            

You can pay extra for a super-pitch which includes water and drainage, but there are ample service points with water, drains and bins around the site.

What is the electric like?           

16A– we had no problems.

Drainage?     

As well as numerous drains to pour waste down there is also a drive over motorhome waste point that is very easily accessible.

What’s the site access like?        

Access is excellent from the road.   But you need to approach from the south (i.e. J28 of the motorway) and come up via Huthwaite, as Silverhill Lane becomes unsuitable for caravans and large motorhomes shortly after the site itself.

What are the Sanitary facilities like?     EXCELLENT – BEST WE’VE EVER SEEN!!

Toilets:                              3 cubicles in each of the ladies and gents + individual bathrooms containing toilet, sink and shower (there were 5 of these in the ladies; 2 large and 3 slightly smaller) + 3 basins (2 in large cubicles and 1 not).  There is also a completely separate disabled room and family room.  The family room has toilet, sink and shower + baby changing unit, toddler seat and a baby bath (and hairdryer).  This is for everyone’s use whilst the main toilets are being cleaned.

Toilet paper provided? Yes – plentiful

Showers:                          Calv’s comment was that you couldn’t get any better!  Remember it’s your own personal bathroom.  The only thing I thought was a little strange was that the doors did have a gap at the top and bottom.  This was explained as being for ventilation as the rooms are wetrooms.

NB: I have never before been compelled to photograph the facilities – until now!

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD

Dog and bike shower

Small onsite shop

Information room

Children’s playground

We paid £28.85 per night including electric.  This is far more than we will usually pay but we ended up staying an extra night 🙂

What’s the area like?            

Amazing views, even as you drive through slightly industrial areas.  Immediately opposite the site is a walking/cycling trail that is part of a network – The Teversal Trails.  There is a viewpoint up a hill that is well worth taking in.

We visited Bolsover Castle and Stainsby Mill.  We didn’t have time to visit Hardwick Hall.

 

We liked:-

The area

The facilities and how well the site was maintained

The relaxed nature of the site

We didn’t like so much:-

We hated:-

Nothing

Moving On:
