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.

Wonderful autumn break

Ashleigh Farm CL
Just spent four nights on this lovely site and couldn't fault a thing. Very friendly welcome from Dave and Caroline and the hot loaf of bread delivered after setting up was a great hand warmer and very tasty too! Lots of good walks around and about and the large grassed area was wonderful to get our puppy to practice his recall training. Whole site is really peaceful and the sheep are entertaining to watch. The shower facility is first class. Fascinating watching the witches' houses being built ( and surviving the horrendous wind overnight) . Can't wait for a return visit to see them finished. Shame the Half Moon pub next door was closed for the duration of our stay but the Fox and Hounds was a very pleasant alternative. Wonderful site.

Fantastic CL

Ashleigh Farm CL
Lovely CL in a very small village, but lots to do from the site. Caroline is very knowledgeable & provided us with a map of the area & suggestions of walks or bike rides. She also makes the most delicious bread & scones. We ordered French baguette & cream tea, both were fantastic. Site is on bus route to Lincoln, which is well worth a visit. There are 2 pubs, both serving gr8 pub food. Overall, lovely CL, would not hesitate to recommend & loom forward to staying at again.

Second wonderful stay

Ashleigh Farm CL
We stopped for two nights to see relatives. The site is lovely and quiet and there are some great walks around the village. We had fresh bread and cakes from Caroline and she was always on hand for any questions or advice, yet not intrusive. There are hard standing or a vast area of grass to choose a spot as long as you can reach the hook up point. We liked the grass as we had a wonderful sunny spot with a fabulous view. The communal bathroom is the nicest I have ever seen on a cl and immaculately clean. There are some sheep grazing nearby and some chickens near the house that are kept away from site area.

Wonderful site

Ashleigh Farm CL
We stayed at Ashleigh Farm for 5 nights. We were welcomed by Caroline who showed us where to pitch. She offered a choice of hardstanding or grass. We chose grass. Behind us was a field of sheep. It was lovely and peaceful. The bathroom facilities equal that of any top end hotel. Everything had been thought of. They were amazing. Caroline bakes the most amazing cakes and bread, so definitely order some! Dave and Caroline were brilliant hosts, full of local information, let our children hold their new chicks and play with their dogs, and just happy to have a chat. There is a quiet pub at the entrance to the site and another a short walk or drive away. Both did great food. We loved our stay and will definitely be back!
