Hi Pete & Rachel
Just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our stay 23rd May 2014 for 3 nights.
The site is lovely, the guinea pigs unusual, and Oscar seemed to love us to bits.
The site was exceptionally well kept, and the pitches very flat, which make parking the caravan so much easier
Your local "the five Bells" was excellent and the food was gorgeous.
We walked into Dry Doddington, to see the Lancaster Bomber memorial in the church, and found it very interesting and very moving.
 The people in the village Hall & Gerda who we chatted to for ages were all lovely.We intend to try and stop again before the end of the year.
 Kind regards
Mark Kinsey & Clare Harrison(Internet booking)

As has been mentioned in previous reviews this is a great site with a little quirk. Everything you would expect from a CL including very nice host along with the Dog Archie who is always glad of a pat and stroke. They also have about a dozen pet rabbits and 17 Guinea Pigs that roam the site which adds to it's charm and homely feel.
Claypole half a mile and Balderton two and a half miles are nearby for any shopping you require along with a good Fish & Chip shop called A1 in Balderton. They also have a small hut with places to visit and any information you might require to add to the enjoyment. I would not hesitate to recommend this site and will use it again ourselves.

Peajay    Date of Visit: March 2009   Motorhome

We stayed at this site for one night prior to visiting the Newark Motorhome.
The owner, Pete Walters, welcomed us with open arms. This is one of the best CL sites we have stayed on. Only £9 per night. My only little grown was no toilet.
The grassed area is like a bowling green together with an excellent hard standing area.
A 10 minute walk into the village to a very well stocked local shop and a very friendly landlady at the local pub.
Our dog made friends with Archie, a very friendly dog owned by Pete, who wanders around and comes to greet you on arrival.
We will definitely be returning for a longer spell in the future.

Glad we tried Little acres a great cl site. We asked for a pitch on the hardstandings only because of the amount of rain we've had this summer. There are three pitching areas but next time we go will be in the back field it,s as flat as a bowling green.
The owners are very friendly and our dog soon made friends with archie the owners dog. Also roaming are the pet rabbits and giunea pigs which are fun to watch.
The owners are constantly up grading the basic facilities that are needed on a cl. Its about 1/2mile to the village with 2 pubs and the shop which opens early morning for newspapers etc. With electronic gates once your on site it makes for a very safe site.
The site is easy to find from the A1 with only the last 20yds, on a narrow lane. We look forward to visiting again that's if it,s not full every weekend. Any one travelling on a long journey either north or south would find it an Ideal stopover for the night.

Subject: Little Acres Claypole
Comment: We arrived mid afternoon in January having been given instructions as to how to access the site. First impressions were very pleasing, very clean and tidy easy to setup on the hardstanding with all facilities close to hand.our hosts were very friendly just what one needs on a cold but bright winters day. We stayed for one week as the site is very central for Newark (close by), Nottingham, Lincoln and Grantham, even in winter there was lots to do and places to go, we will be back next year without a doubt
