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. We pride ourselves on being a small, friendly, family concern ready to offer a warm welcome to all our visitors.

All hardstanding pitches or grass if you prefer. Following an increased number of visitors in the winter to our lovely peaceful site we have installed 5 hard standing pitches so you never need to get muddy boots 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 ten 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.

Belvoir Castle sits majestically on the hill overlooking the Vale of Belvoir and has lovely gardens to explore as well as the house.

Barrowby village has an award winning butcher, delicatessen, bakery, post office and pub and is a short walk away. Buses run from here to Grantham with a train station, library, 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 and a miniature railway.

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

lovely site

We had 7 days at this site and after a warm welcome where we lent a ordinance survey map of the area and told of all the local places of interest. The field is well spaced but we had to turn our caravan or would have been looking at a caravan storage area but once turned we had pleasant views of fields and far away hill. The site was clean and we felt secure with the secuity gate. There are many places of interest within a 45min drive and we didn't qiuite see everything during our stay. We would certainly go again as we felt this small part of Lincolnshire offered more than we excpected.

Great site

We booked for 3 nights with friends for last week and ended up staying an extra night. Great location for a lovely site although it was rather muddy underfoot - but hey, it is February! There are 5 well positioned hard standing pitches but not big enough to park a car alongside the caravan, we had a bit of an issue driving off the grass after 3 days standing, but it's that time of year - what can you expect?!. Helen is lovely and very accommodating, providing an extension cable and a local map for the duration of our stay. The site is beautifully clean, and very well located for absolute peace and tranquility - the perfect place to get away from it all. We found lovely off road walks with our dogs, especially over towards Belvoir Castle, passing -and calling in at - some very good pubs. The Dirty Duck provided excellent food and drinks, the butcher in Barrowby is very good too - great ribeye! There is a Coop about 1.5 miles towards Grantham for additional supplies. Thanks Helen, we will be back!

Beautiful and Peaceful Site

Just returned from a lovely weekend at this tranquil and picturesque site set in beautiful countryside. The site is well positioned for cracking walks along the Grantham canal or Viking way truly spoilt for choice. The site has the amenities you require and the owners were polite and helpful making us feel welcome. We would definitely return again. Thank you.

A little gem,

By comparison having used CLS for some years Casthorpe is a real find which started with a prompt response to our enquiry re availability to the warmest greeting on arrival with a wealth of information on the local area . Easy to find with clear directions and signs. Security gates into the paddock which was reassuring. We look forward to visiting again soon.

Always A Warm Welcome

This is a real gem of a site, quiet, secure, close to a small selection of local shops and Take-Away, good walking and cycling all around including along the Grantham canal to two excellent Pubs in Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir. A combination of hard standing pitches and grassed area ensure you can select a pitch to suit your preference. I found one of the pitches to be slightly unlevel but this doesn't cause too many problems if it's the last one available. Living locally I have used this site on numerous occasions to test out the renovations on my 1967 Cheltenham Springbok. My first visit set the tone for a very friendly sequence of visits. I had just collected a rather dilapidated looking vintage van - algae green with black streaks and a broken front window. Helen took it all in her stride and once I had convinced her I wasn't a new age traveller we enjoyed many a chat about the (very slow) progress I was making on the renovation project with each visit. Sadly, the site is so conducive to peaceful reading, dog walking or just watching the world hardly go by not much renovating work got done while I was on site! Access to the site is via an electronic five bar gate with your own access code giving a secure feel to the field. In the unlikely event of problems the house is adjacent to the field. Power is supplied from one distribution board but don't worry if your lead isn't long enough, extensions are supplied. Ill health has meant that my visits have been curtailed for quite a while now and my Cheltenham has moved on to new owners. I will get myself a new unit (well newer than 1967) in time and I can say with almost certainty my first test run will be to Casthorpe House Farm. A highly recommended site, give it a try, but book in advance during peak season and popular holiday periods.
