Why stay here ...

Caroline, Dave and their family look forward to welcoming you to their beautiful Certificated Location which is situated only 12 miles from the beautiful historic city of Lincoln and 6 miles from the small market town of Gainsborough. Our site is positioned in the centre of a quaint village with a small country pub next door serving good quality food Thursdays to Sundays and with open coal fires in the colder months. A second public house, serving food all week, is only a short stroll away.

Whilst being in the centre of the village our site is peaceful and tranquil and has stunning, uninterrupted views over open fields and farm land. On site there are sheep, pigs and chickens with the spring months being a hive of activity with lambing and the chance of seeing piglets and newly hatched chicks.

Whilst there is not a shop on site, there are shops in the adjacent villages. There are a variety of fishing ponds locally and one of the last traditional coal fired fish and chip shops in the country only 2 miles away in the village of Upton. Home baked artisan bread, including gluten free, is baked on site on request.

The village of Scampton is less than 6 miles away, with the Dambuster Arms, the RAF base which is home to the aerobatic team The Red Arrows and the Heritage Centre housed in one of the original WW2 hangers. At many times of the year, but especially between the months of November and March, the Red Arrows can be seen training in the skies overhead from our site and other local viewing points.

The historic city of Lincoln boasts an impressive Cathedral, a castle which houses a Victorian prison and a copy of the Magna Carta, the Museum of Lincolnshire Life that has social history exhibits in Victorian barracks, The Collection which is a museum displaying local archaeology and the Usher Gallery which has works by Turner and Lowry. In addition, in the lower part of the city, connected by Steep Hill (which is notoriously steep!), there are many cafes, bars and boutique shops.

Previous reviews have said it all!

Well cared for site. Easy access, double gated. Welcoming and hardworking owners. Plenty of space, excellent toilets and showers(currently closed because of Covid restrictions). Bread, cakes, meals, croissants all expertly baked to order by the delightful Caroline. Pub next door, what more could you ask for? Thank you for a a lovely week.

Peace and tranquillity at its best!

We have just returned from Ashleigh Farm, our first 4 night break this year, it was lovely. The site is well maintained and cared for with very spacious pitches. It wasn’t a problem that the toilet is not yet open as the chemical waste area is spotless and easily accessible. Caroline was very welcoming, and her bread and scones delivered still warm to our MH were delicious. The beautiful weather and tranquility of the site encouraged a glass of wine each evening to watch the gorgeous sunset. We definitely recommend this CL and will be returning.

Our stay at Ashleigh Farm, what a find.

We spent just four days at Ashleigh Farm if only it had been longer. Caroline and her husband have created a sight of tranquility. What a shame covid prevented us from using the 5 star shower and toilet, quite amazing as we had a peek, but next time hey. We woke to beautiful sunrises and where the sight is is perfect to watch the sunset too with a glass of wine as we did. There are fantastic walks in every direction you look and a pub next door which does great food. They rear their own sheep and should you wish to purchase the meat as we did take it from us ....absolutely delicious, also freshly baked bread to die for of all different varieties should you wish to purchase another reason for returning. Nothing was too much trouble for Caroline she went above and beyond to make sure that our break was a relaxed one. I cannot recommend staying here enough , she works incredibly hard and it certainly shows with the smooth running of everything.

Wonderful home baking.

How lovely to arrive to home baked bread and a cream tea. we also bought soup and chilI con carne all delicious. The shower and toilet available is wonderful. beautifully warm and clean, better than my bathroom at home. They have obviously put in a lot of hard work at this site and it couldn't have been better. Hope to come again.
