Milestone Caravan Park, Great North Road, Cromwell, NG23 6JE, 01636821244
To find site:- Milestone is situated close to the A1 Trunk Road. Heading north from Newark watch out for sign to Cromwell and Norwell and take slip road just before Little Chef. Continue through Cromwell and site is on the left.
Milestone Caravan Park is a Caravan Club affiliated site. Bookings must be made direct to the campsite, a £10 deposit is asked for. Currently they only accept payment by cash or cheque but they are hoping to take payment by debit card soon. The site is open all year and has about 100 pitches, most of which are on gravel hardstandings, there are also a few grass pitches, however the site does not accept tents. The site also offers seasonal pitches and storage. On site there are some park home style cabins. There are two heated toilet blocks both to a very high standard with larger than average toilet and shower cubicles. Electric points are close to each pitch and water and waste points are dotted around the site although some pitches seem a long way from the closest service point. I thought this campsite has some nice landscaping touches which counter balances its open aspect. There is some noise from the A1 and the not to distant main railway line but to be fair this was hardly discernable inside the caravan. There are no play facilities for children and ball games are not allowed. Milestone has a fishing lake and day tickets are available for £3 a day. There are more fishing opportunities locally.
This campsite would make an ideal staging post between the South and Newcastle/Scotland. We used the site to visit the well know Lincoln Christmas Market. Newark is only a few miles away for either to visit in its own right or shopping. There is a Waitrose supermarket situated next to the railway station. Date of visit December 2007.
