Very peaceful

This was our first booking with the caravan and motorhome club , we booked for the Easter break quite late and couldn't get into our usual site so decided to check out the webpage , so glad we did . A pretty 5 van site with lots of pitch space on grass . Lovely and well kept but as with a lot of sites grass clippings are a problem . Water tap and grey water disposal with rubbish bins but no other facilities which we prefer . Lovely to see chickens and ducks in the house gardens ( makes me feel at home as I miss my chickens when I'm on holiday ) , would have been lovely to buy fresh eggs from an honesty box as we have in other sites . Horncastle is a short walk down the road , dogs can be walked down the quiet road and there's a public footpath at the end . Co-op and Tescos in horncastle as well as a plethora of charity shops for those bargains . A ride out to one of lincolnshires huge beaches is a must when you are here . Will come back again

Convenient site for the Wolds

Stayed on this CL for 5 nights over the May Bank Holiday weekend. The site is very convenient for the Lincolnshire Wolds and we enjoyed a few walks in the area. Located on a dead end road on the North side of Horncastle it is convenient for the town centre and shops. A gravel road runs round the centre of the site and gives good access to the pitches situated around the edges of the site. The site is in farmland and is quiet - a good place for a relaxing stay.

New motorhome shakedown

This was our fist expedition with our new motorhome after having a caravan for 10 years.  We only booked about an hour before arrival and found that we had the entire CL to ourselves. Lovely and quiet, a great location for walking and Horncastle is only about 20 mins. walk away. Managed to find a couple of geocaches on the way into town as well. Very easy to access.

A nice CL

Stayed here for 8 days in early May 2015. Site is a smallish flat well maintained grassy area with a hard circular road round the middle and numbered informal pitches around the edge. There was only one other van on site when we arrived, so we picked our pitch and set up. There are tall hedges around the site, so no views but the site seems open. The bins are general - no specific recycling bin. A quiet site with the only noise being the occasional tractor from the adjacent pig breeding farm - it's all indoors and there is no smell. Good TV and Mobile (EE) signal. It's a 1+ mile walk into Horncastle. The site is ideal for walking in the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds. We also visited Lincoln and Skegness, both about 20 miles. The owner does not live on site, but a few hundred yards towards Horncastle from the site - we did not see them until we went to pay. A nice CL.

Good Clean and Flat Grass Site

Stayed for a pre booked week during June. On arrival all pitches were occupied so parked up and walked back to owners house and problem was resolved quickly. All pitches on grass within easy access to water, waste and bins. High hedging to all sides and adjacent to working farm but very little noise. Quiet lane outside which was ideal for walking dogs into Horncastle and country side. Horncastle is a must for antique shops and shopping. Ideally placed for Lincolnshires attractions. We would definitely stay again but would telephone the owners the day before our arrival to make sure booked placement is free.
