Review of Radcliffe-on-Trent by Maggie on August 6th, 2006
We visited this campsite in Aug 2006 with a large group of friends and their children. We were pitched in the paddock which has spacious pitches around a large grassed area. The area was brilliant for playing rounders and cricket. We had several children over the age of 10, who were well able to hit the ball, but they never managed to hit it anywhere near any of the pitches. It was lovely that they could play within site of our tents and caravans. The pool was also very popular, yes it was cold, but that didn't seem to bother the kids who were desperate to visit each day. The children enjoyed the free range chickens that wandered around, and were impressed when the farrier came to shoe the horses. All in all they had a lovely time and can't wait to visit again. I booked the site after reading Thornton's Holt website, but was concerned when I later read the reviews on this website. However having just spent a week at the site, I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone looking for a child friendly campsite. The facilities may not be up to caravan club standards, but they were always clean. The showers were hot and had good pressure. (I was able to shower and wash my hair for 20p.) The shop was well stocked with basics, anything else could be purchased from a large Morrisons about 3-4 miles away. The site produce their own information book which tells you not only about the site, but also information about the local area.
