Why stay here ...

We have a level grass site in the heart of the countryside. Only one and a half miles away is the village of Metheringham that boasts several pubs, restaurants and takeaways. There is also a coop with a cash dispenser if needed. The walk is a mile from the top of the farm track, a very relaxing 25 minutes into the centre. We also provide some hardstanding.

If getting away from it all with peace and quiet is what you are looking for, then this is the place to visit. We have an abundance of wildlife - stoats, foxes, hares and other mammals are often seen. It is an Ornithologist's heaven! We have little owls, barn owls and tawny owls on the site. The scenery is a delight to paint and because we are on the fenside, the sunsets and sunrises are stunning! We also have a beautiful planted garden and lovely trees on the site. We have absolutely no light pollution so it is a stargazers delight and shooting stars, satellites and comets trails are a regular occurrence.

We are away from busy roads and traffic fumes. There are many walks leading from the site and cycle routes as well. Dogs are allowed on leads (we have sheep and game cover in the fields nearby) and again good long walks for dog owners.

Private bookings are available in advance for the outdoor heated swimming pool situated in the village.

There is a bramble hedge along the side of the field covered with butterflies such as comma, red admirals, peacocks, small tortoiseshell, painted lady etc. We also provide a flush toilet with basin and cold water only and drinking water. We have a chemical toilet disposal point and five electric hook ups. Nearby we have fishing lakes and golf courses and horse riding.

The local area promotes a 1940s weekend in Woodhall Spa just a 15 minute drive away, and the market town of Horncastle has an abundance of antique centres. We also open for the Lincoln Christmas Market - full of wonderful atmosphere.

Lincolnshire is famous for the Dam Busters and the Lancaster bomber and there are museums close by promoting this. The Bomber command memorial centre is a must see. Slightly further away is the seaside town of Skegness with miles of sandy beaches.

A train station in the village provides free parking and takes only twelve minutes into the historic city centre of Lincoln. There are museums, the cathedral, castle and bail gate area. There is a regular bus route from the village centre.

Lincolnshire is a wonderful county with plenty to see and do. Come and visit us soon.

A lovely C/L

Barff Farm Fenside
A lovely quiet and relaxing site, friendly and welcoming owners. We stayed on hardstanding pitch because of the size of our motorhome, it was perfect to look out at all all the pretty shrubs and flowers. Site is neat and maintained to high standard. Metheringham only a 20 mins walk, ideal for cycling.10 out 10 for us, we will definitely be making a return visit.

A beautiful spot

Barff Farm Fenside
We stayed for 3 nights here recently and really enjoyed it. The site is very quiet and secluded, very well looked after, with a beautiful garden and surrounded by farmland and wildlife. The family who run it are very friendly and helpful. Perfect for a quiet few days.

Stayed at Barff Farm end of June,we where greeted by the owner on arrival & shown to our pitch, the pitch we stayed was grass, think there is a hard standing pitch, the views are excellent ,also there is a walk through the field to a small stream & if you are lucky you could see a Kingfisher,other birds near the site are small owls, Barn owls, this is a CL that we will be returning to as it is soo peaceful.

Relaxing stay

Barff Farm Fenside
Wonderful CL’ We had a very nice 4 nights at Barff Farm earlier this month, & would have happily stayed longer, but every pitch was booked for the following weekend, which is testimony of just how good the site is ! We were greeted by ’Sheila’ on arrival, & were made very welcome as she guided us to out pitch, which was well situated & level. The £15 daily charge was very reasonable for the EHU & toilet wash area, which was kept spotless & safe. We were surrounded by beautiful flowers & greenery, & loved the wildlife around the farm. A nest box adjacent to our caravan had been adopted by feeding great tits, & really entertained us during our stay. An amazing barn owl regularly hunted through the trees at dusk, & we even found a Roe deer on one of the local walks on the rural tracks. We had our bikes with us & made good use of the many bridle ways & quiet roads in the area. Fish & chips from the village, & then a meal at the nearby ‘Red Lion’, Dunston during one of our bike rides were welcome too. We even had a great day out in Lincoln from the nearby railway station (£13 return for our group of 4)! Thanks to sites like this, we’re now fans of CL’s over the busy & expensive Club sites. We’ll be back ! Derek & Joan Baker Nottingham.

Beautiful CL

Barff Farm Fenside
Stayed this last weekend at Barff Farm. it is everything a CL should be! You couldn't ask for more. Very well kept site with beautiful gardens. Lots of bird boxes with different birds in - even some little owls in the farm garden. Lovely sport for wildlife watching. Walked into Metheringham to the pub and to the Co-op. Definitely recommend!
