Why stay here ...

I would like to introduce you to Casthorpe House Farm CL and the Smith family. We are Neil and Helen and we have two teenage children, Henry and Chloe. both now at university. We pride ourselves on being a small, friendly, family concern ready to offer a warm welcome to all our visitors.

We have a steady number of visitors, in the winter, to our lovely peaceful site and we have 5 hard standing pitches so you never need to get muddy wheels again. The bays are 6 metres wide and well-spaced out, each with fabulous views of the countryside.

We are located in the beautiful vale of Belvoir, a surprisingly hilly part of Lincolnshire but you will find our site fairly level. Set in the heart of the countryside yet we are only five minutes from Grantham, the A52, A1 and A607. Casthorpe House Farm has been our home for twelve years and we are slowly but surely improving the house, gardens and the site. The field is large enough for all five caravans to have their own space, ensuring privacy for everyone. It is beautifully quiet so that you can hear all the birds singing. We are lucky enough to have Woodpeckers in one of the many mature trees on our land.

We have an automated gate for secure access and peace of mind. Each person has their own gate code to get in and out when you want to. A pedestrian gate enables people to go for walks or cycle rides in the local area.

Our notice board has a well-stocked supply of local information.

Feedback from our visitors suggests that the tranquillity is the main attraction of our site. Our visitors come back regularly so we must be doing something right.

Two fields away is the Nottingham to Grantham canal with an excellent flat towpath. The Viking Way crosses the canal. You can either walk towards Nottingham or the other way is Denton Reservoir where you can fish as well as on the canal. There is a labyrinth of footpaths along the canal making circular walks back to our site plentiful. The Dirty Duck pub is around a mile from the site and is on the banks of the canal making it an enjoyable walk.

Belvoir Castle sits majestically on the hill overlooking the Vale of Belvoir and has lovely gardens to explore as well as the house. The Engine Yard (recently renovated and opened) has a variety of shops, cafe and small garden centre and is well worth a visit.

Barrowby village, a mile away, has an award winning butcher, delicatessen/bistro, post office and pub. Buses run from here to Grantham with a train station, library, museum, shops and supermarkets in Grantham.

Belton House is one of the many National Trust properties in the region, it has an amazing adventure playground set in the trees and parkland, a miniature railway and beautiful formal gardens.

Lincoln, Nottingham, Newark, Melton Mowbray and Stamford are all within an hour's drive.

Lovely

Casthorpe House Farm
We only stayed here for a one night stopover & chose this site as it was reasonably close to the A1. It’s lovely! One of the most peaceful sites we’ve stayed on. Pitches are large and spread out, there’s plenty of space to find some shade under the trees - if you’re lucky with the weather! The walk to the canal and along to the pub is very pleasant with views of Belvoir Castle. This is somewhere we’d love to return to for a longer stay

Excellent CL, in a lovely location.

Casthorpe House Farm
Everything about this CL proved just what we hoped for, and we are already talking about returning! Quick response to a phone call message enquiring about staying, we found it very easily, and it’s tucked away in a lovely rural location, yet easy to reach from nearby main routes. Good access, with a security gate operated by a push button code, the CL area is off right from the main house and further gated van storage area. Plenty of room for 5 outfits with choice of grass or hardstanding pitches, it all depends on length of your hook up cable, but there are plenty to borrow if required. No pitch bollards, all hook ups are located on one board at rear of barn, but a couple of cables will reach all areas. Nice open area, sheltered by hedges. Fresh water and waste water taps by entrance, CDP point opposite area, easy to use. (Note for MH owners, pitch by gate would reach fill up tap easily with hosepipe) The CL’s description tells you lots about the area, places of interest nearby, and some of the lovely walks/cycle rides from the Site. We found it really good for cycling, roads not too busy, and great off road links along Grantham Canal, old railway tracks, the Viking Way, so good for walking as well. Exploring some of the small nearby villages by bike is rewarding, very pretty, nice churches and old buildings. Pub looked very nice, great Canal side location. Grantham with all amenities is around 10 minutes drive. We found the Site very quiet and relaxing, lots of interesting bird life all around. The odd visitor pops in to the storage area, but this doesn’t impact at all on the CL. The owners were away on our visit, but a lovely friendly couple doing Warden duties were around for any help and advice needed, and keep an eye on everything. Dogs are very welcome, it’s a good doggy site with extensive footpath walks 200 metres from Site, or 400 metres for the canal path. Overall, this is a very, very nice CL. No fuss, a good welcome, helpful people around if needed, peace and quiet and a lovely location are our abiding impressions. Great for exploring this very interesting part of England. Recommend visits to Easton Walled Gardens (HHA), Belvoir Castle Estate (HHA), Woolsthorpe Manor (NT), Grantham Canal. We hope to revisit again, before too long. Very good value for money.

This lovely site should be on everyone's camping bucket list

Casthorpe House Farm
I stayed for 4 nights,  originally booking 3 but it was so lovely I decided to make the most of it and booked an extra night. The owner, Helen, was very helpful and I noticed she welcomed everyone as they arrived. The site, which is well laid out, is sheltered and set among several beautiful mature oak trees making it a mini parkland. I look for sites that provide a variety of good walks from the gate and in this Casthorpe House Farm did not disappoint. A short walk along a minor road either way takes you to a myriad or walks involving the Grantham canal, which is painstakingly being restored, the old ironstone railway and the Viking way, with many more options in between. Most, of the walks are easy with a range of distances to suit the majority of ramblers.  The landscapes are delightful and if picnicking is not your thing, the weather turns or you just fancy a pint there are pubs along the way in most directions. A most highly recommended CL Thank you Sue, Treacle & Tenby
