Why stay here ...

My CL is a quiet site set at the foot of the Lincolnshire wolds an area of outstanding natural beauty. Situated 1.5 miles from the market town of Alford, less than 8 miles from the coastal resorts of Mablethorpe and Sutton-on-Sea where we have a chalet availabe for daily hire. 

The surrounding countryside is ideal for walkers and cyclists (OS explorer maps 274 and 283). Leading directly from the site our disused railway line gives a 15 minute secluded stroll ideal for dog walking. Fun fishing in a small on site pond for Rudd, Tench, and Crucian Carp with serious course fishing within 5 miles. We have two hardstandings and all pitches have electric hook ups.

Facilities on site ...

  • Dog walk from site
  • Shower (exclusive use)
  • WC (exclusive use)

5 nights stay.

Mandy's Plant and Garden Centre
We stayed here for 5 nights May 2023. The site is generally as described in the book, however it is not all good. It is not strictly a five unit site. There is a large twin axle caravan with people actually living and working from site, There is a further van sited which looks as thought is is parked up as a seasonal unit. It was unoccupied all the time during our visit. There are also three other units set around the pond, although they are not on the 5 unit site, the access to them is through the CL site and they use the CL facilities. So basically, the CL is supposed to be a licenced 5 unit site but there are only three spaces available to book and there are in total 8 units on site when full. The shower is very basic, cold and the water flow from the shower head is a dribble. The toilet is also very basic.no toilet paper, no hot water for hand washing, no means of hand drying and no coat hangers. Be prepared to use your own facilities. Apart from that it is ok .

Absolutely brilliant!

Mandy's Plant and Garden Centre
We have just spent 10 days on this wonderful site. Peaceful and quiet throughout our stay. Walks in surrounding area are plentiful (as were the blackberries)and there is easy access to the local beaches within a short drive-which kept our dog happy. Weather was great except for one day when we headed off to the Woodlands in Boston and walked the well laid out paths there. Batteries fully recharged. Mandy is very friendly and greeted us on arrival and chatted throughout our stay without being obtrusive. And finally, the on site shower and toilet were an added bonus. Thank you for a great CL.

Once again not disappointed! Mandy so friendly and easy going makes you feel on holiday as soon as you arrive. This place gets better and better, more hardstandings this year. if you want a site that’s not just a field in the middle of nowhere then this is for you

Love this place

Mandy's Plant and Garden Centre
Stayed here numerous times now, and is my go-to site when I need a break. Immaculately kept, hard standings, loads of space, excellent facilities and loads of great walks with the doggets direct from the site. By far and away the best CL I've visited. Alford a couple of miles away, got some great antique/collector shops and a decent Co-op.

2nd Visit, Love This CL

Mandy's Plant and Garden Centre
As said 2nd time here, 4 night stop off on my way home from up north. Was only 2 rigs here, super quiet being set up next to the old railway line. Love this part of the Wolds, great dog walking direct from site and plenty of shops in Alford for all the essentials. Toilet and shower were open, 50p per shower left in honesty tub, hopefully you found mine ok! Why this doesn't get full I don't know but being selfish that suits me just fine. All in all another great stay, thankyou.
