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.

A hidden gem

Stayed here overnight whilst visiting friends in the village. Received such a warm and friendly welcome from Caroline - the site is still being developed further by the owners but it is absolutely smashing, in the heart of a lovely village, with the pub next door serving great meals at sensible prices, This site demands that you relax and take in the peace and tranquility that surrounds you. The hardstanding pitches are great - good size and absolutely level. Shower and toilet facilities are exceptional. It makes a great base from which to explore an area with such a rich history. Loved it!

Excellent hospitality at a great site

We had a fantastic stay at Caroline's CL. We arrived initially for one night and stayed for three. The location was peaceful (aside from the excitement of the Red Arrows overhead, which was a bonus), the views from the site were great and the walking was good. Caroline was very hospitable, providing useful local information, and her bread is excellent (go for the white bread when offered a choice!). The WC/shower room was modern, warm and immaculate, with toiletries provided, making for a very nice touch. The pub next door serves simple pub fare, but all done to a high standard and in huge portions at a low price. We highly recommend this site and hope to return one day to this lovely part of Lincolnshire.

Excellent CL

Ashleigh farm is a new CL and is a perfect site for a peaceful stay. Caroline the owner is very welcoming and provides an info pack for the surrounding area. The bus stop for Lincoln is just a few yards up the road. It's a lovely rural site with lots of walks direct from the site, very dog friendly. The site is not a farm it's more like a small holding with highland sheep, chickens , a dog and a cat. The facilities on site are all brand new, the shower/ toilet is amazing and Caroline's attention to detail is second to none. At the moment there are 2 very large hard standing pitches with a 3rd under construction. There is a large level grassed area for the other pitches. This CL is one of the best we have stayed on and Caroline's freshly baked bread made to order is delicious. We would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely return in the future.

Don’t want to tell

Loved this site so much I really don’t want to tell everyone or it will be fully booked and we won’t be able to visit again. Emailed to book and response was quick and very helpful. Able to order some home baked bread to be ready when we arrived. Lovely welcome from Caroline which made us feel immediately at home. Bathroom facilities are exceptional and always beautifully clean. A couple of hard standing pitches with another underway. Friendly village pub next door with good pub food and lovely warm fires. Caroline supplied lots of info of places to visit in the locality and more was given by the friendly locals in the pub. Too much to visit in just a few days but we managed Hemswell Antique Centre (an enormous place which kept us occupied on a wet morning), Lincoln and the Dam Busters Inn at Scampton. This is a new site and there are some great plans to develop it more. Wish Caroline and Dave lots of success as they put in so much effort.

Beautiful Fresh Bread

This cl has outstanding facilities the shower and toilet block are first class and kept clean and tidy, the first 2 hard standings they have laid are the biggest i have ever come across, they are wide enough to put your caravan, awning and vehicle all side by side and still have space left over. The grass pitches are as big as you can possibly need, well drained and pretty flat. Caroline and David still have work to do on this site and it is quite apparent that it will be of the high standard already present. The site is very peaceful and quiet as well. The grass is well kept and mowed regularly and the clippings picked up. The other very nice touch is Caroline makes fresh bread and baguettes to order and it tastes and smells very nice. Also got some fresh home grown bramley apples.
