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.
