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.

Another fantastic stay

Ashleigh Farm CL
Our second stay at this amazing CL site. Caroline was welcoming and makes sure everyone is happy. Had friends with us so treated ourselves to one of the delicious afternoon teas. The plates just kept coming! Lovely and quiet with some nice walks straight from the site. Brilliant friendly pub next door serving great food. I don't really want to extol the virtues of this fantastic site too much as I want there always to be room for us, but it would be churlish not to. Caroline and Dave have worked hard here and have got everything just right. Just wait until you see the bathrooms!!!!

Fantastic Stay

Ashleigh Farm CL
Absolutely fantastic weekend away at Ashleigh Farm. Caroline was so helpful, pleasant and always with a smile. Her baking skills were fantastic as we treated ourselves to a delicious afternoon tea, delivered to our pitch- it was divine! The toilet/shower block is hotel standard and the pitches were lovely and wide. The pub at the end of the drive served delicious home cooked food. Lots of walks available straight from the site. The glamping bell tents and witches huts were fantastic! Would highly highly recommend- we will definitely be back. Thank you.

Excellent CL

Ashleigh Farm CL
What a lovely CL this is. Great views. Dog walks on site via public footpaths. There are some glamping tents & huts (4) on this site also that are located away from the caravans etc. Quiet village location. Pub immediately next door which is very nice. Pitches are spacious and well spaced, if you are on the grass you can park how you want. Well kept with everything within easy reach. Excellent toilet/showers done to a very high standard and immaculate. The owner does courses for breadmaking and offers afternoon tea at a price on the main website which is worth a look. Very nice and friendly owners. Will definitely return when visiting this area.

Great stay

Ashleigh Farm CL
Had a lovely 4 nights at this excellent CL. Caroline is friendly and welcoming, the pitches are large and the toilet and shower facilities are immaculate. The site is brilliantly located for Lincoln (just a half hour bus ride away) and we cycled safely along the quiet country lanes (The Tillbridge Tastery in Sturton is well worth a visit for breakfast or lunch). There’s a great pub at the entrance and what can we say that hasn’t already been said about the wonderful bread, doughnuts and afternoon tea? Fabulous! We will be back!

What a great site!

Ashleigh Farm CL
We stayed here for three nights and the whole atmosphere was one of quiet and tranquility. Caroline welcomed us on arrival and said we could set up anywhere in the massive area reserved for motorhomes and caravans. All had EHU available with a choice of three hardstandings or grass. A five minute walk to the bus stop for either Gainsborough or Lincoln. Buses were every hour. One of the best part of the site was the fact that there are two "hotel standard" bathrooms with showers and even toiletries supplied. They were the icing on the cake. Caroline will bake bread and cakes to order. We had a granary loaf which was scrumptious! Great walks all round and even taking the bikes out felt safe on the local roads. All in all a fantastic site well run by Caroline and her family. Deserves to be nominated as CL of the year!
