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.

We stayed here for a few days over the bank holiday weekend. This is one of the best kept sites we have ever been on it was beautifully kept and amazingly peaceful. Lovely to hear the birds singing and spotting the wildlife. We brought our bikes so we went out cycling from the site each day along the very quiet lanes. Looking forward to returning.

So Peacefull with fantastic Hosts

Barff Farm Fenside
Our first time at this CL site and this part of Lincolnshire. Good welcome and offered two pitches to chose from. Our chosen pitch was perfect looking over the countryside. We enjoyed the peace and quite and beautiful walks with our dogs. Could not fault this site and thank Michelle and Gary for making it as comfortable as it is

What a gem!

Barff Farm Fenside
Since getting our motorhome we've stayed at 24 sites in 3 countries, and this one is the prettiest and best maintained we have ever seen. We had a lovely welcome from Michel and Gary who made sure we had everything we needed. It's a CL site, so its small with basic facilities. The toilet room is rustic, but sweet and very clean. TV Reception is good, Internet access not so, but I managed with my phone. The setting is just beautiful, flat well maintained lawns, trees shrubs and flowers everywhere, and a wonderful, colourful bank on the stream, thanks to Shiela, Michelle's Mum who tends the gardens. It feels very rural with fantastic views, but the village is just down the road. Our dogs enjoyed the many walks on the local foot paths. We can't recommend it enough!

Love Love Love It

I didn't want to leave a review as this site is so beautiful and such a quite, peaceful site. If you want peace and quite, watch the birds in and out the brook this is the place. You can park where you like and still have something to watch. They have a cute little shed that houses the loo. Michelle and her Mum where lovely and made us feel so welcome. The best part of the day was waking up early (about an hour after sunrise) and watching the 6 or 7 hares playing around our van. Just perfect. The walk to the village takes about 20mins from the end of the drive, but you can have a nice walk across the fields to get there. Sometimes the fighter jets go over during the day when they are practicing up the Humber, but nothing to make a fuss about. I wish this site was closer to home as we would be back next week. Thank You
