Why stay here ...

Welcome to our quiet CL on our small sheep and cattle farm next to the river Witham. We very much hope you enjoy your stay with us.

If you visit from August 2014 you will see we have added a summerhouse which contains details of things to do and see locally. It also has maps of the four walks you can enjoy from the CL, all on quiet, picturesque lanes.

Barkston has a petrol station with a well stocked shop and garage and The Stag Inn serves good food. The village is on the A607 with good links to the A1, Lincoln and Sleaford.

Syston Park farm shop is a mile away and has a restaurant and PYO.  

Within two miles is National Trust property Belton House - well worth a visit.  

Belton also boasts two well appointed golf courses.

Grantham is four miles away. Discover where Isaac Newton went to school, where Margaret Thatcher grew up and the country's only living pub sign, The Beehive Inn.

Slightly further afield is Belvoir Castle, Isaac Newton's birthplace Woolsthorpe Manor (National Trust property - see the famous apple tree) and Easton Walled Gardens. Lincoln boasts it's famous Cathedral, Castle and much more. Newark is a fine market town with much history.

Lincolnshire is "Bomber County" and there is much to see, in particular the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.  

Dogs very welcome, good walks nearby

What a perfect little Gem hidden off the beaten track.

We have just this year started using CL's. This picturesque site is perfect for short or long stays. A fenced field with views over and past the BellMount that leads to Belton House is wonderful. Great location for walks with your four legged friend, and lots of places to visit nearby. If you intend to visit the Barkston Stag pub make sure you book in advance (When you book the CL) as its very popular and we failed to get seated. If you like to sit back watch the clouds roll by while sheep and cows roam around you're going to like it!

Mill Farm was excellent for my needs

We were visiting family in the Grantham area and looking for a convenient spot to stop overnight. I was pleasantly surprised by the level grass pitch with lovely views to wake up to, all the facilities I needed and the Stag Inn a dog's walk away. We enjoyed the most pleasant meal at the pub which boasts stone floors where the pooch could sit at our feet. We booked a second night immediately. Our pet insisted on showing us some of the other walks from the site and there are several we didn't have time to try. I think my sister will be seeing more of her sibling because this is a site I want to revisit. Thanks Steve Tony, Moira and Dougal

Relax in the farm

A great CL site, very tidy and easy to access. Relax around the farm environment and walk with the sheep, to the stream. Local village and pub is easy to walk to and also the endless miles of bridleways and footpaths, through the countryside. Safe van storage site as well, at a great price. We will return. Thanks Clive, Louise & Abbey

2 day stop over

We chose Mill Farm because of its location to Boundary Mills at Grantham. When we arrived there was only 1 other unit. The site was level, neat and tidy and surrounded with cattle one side and sheep on the other. This site is peaceful, with good views and it has a trout stream 10min walk across the fields which Steve allows you to fish. Steve the owner, is a very friendly chap. I wish we could have stayed longer as the Stag pub looked very welcoming. Would definitely visit again. Thanks Colin & Chris
