    Hi all
    I would like to let you know about Milestone Caravan Park just off the A1 near Newark, Notts
    We tried as usual to arrange a small meet over the easter period and as usual failed:Doh: not for the first time either, but yet again due to the lack of available places, unless you book for Easter Just after Christmas, then you have little chance of getting anywhere.
    that said
    Three funsters managed to get the last 3 places at the Milestone CC site near Newark
    And what a breath of fresh air it was, Run By Allan and his wife with son Jo we received a very warm welcome despite being 3 gurt big Rvs:RollEyes:
    we were even allowed to park off pitch:Eeek: in one instance in order that we were able to stay together as a group and from conversations we had with other campers it was common to receive such courtesy from the wardens when possible
    This site best described as 5 star in my book will be used again without doubt as its friendly ,very clean, 10/10 heated washrooms and toilets, flat hard standing in the main and generally a pleasant place to be:thumb:
    In June they are having a bash inside a large building, (all comers welcome) also used for new Year celebrations. with a couple of barrels of local beer donated by the little brewery next door and sold at 50p a pint, proceeds donated to the helicopter fund that monitors the A1
    We had a short chat with Allen about organising a Funsters meet there and it would be possible, although for the first time he would ask we kept it small say 10 vans and see how things worked out, if we were prepared to pay up front he would reserve us a section so as to be able to camp as a group, the advance payment was required as in the past so many folk book and fail to turn up as usual spoiling it for the genuine
    Keep an eye out for a meet at Milestone Caravan Park
    you wont regret it
    Also RV friendly With full RV dump points:thumb: and definitely one for The Big Pitch guide, Taken slowly big rigs will cope with ease
    PS I will leave to another member to post in the review section as he took some pics to go with it

    I can second Geo's recommendation for this site... So much so that I'm now considering renewing my membership of the CC . I have never found a warden so accomodating as Allen.

    I'm definately up for another bash at this one :thumb:

    We had a couple of nights at Milestone towards the back end of 2007 as a base for the Lincoln Christmas market. Brilliant site.
