Why stay here ...

Andrew and Alison welcome you to Hall Farm CL. We run an arable farm growing wheat, barley, beans, maize and Christmas Trees.

Our CL site is a securely fenced grass field, containing five hard standings, each with a 10 amp electric supply. We welcome families and dogs, as there is plenty of space on the site for everyone. There are plenty of local walks of varying length, accessible from the site including footpaths alongside the River Trent.

We are situated 10 miles from the A1and 10 miles west of Lincoln, with easy access to the historic market towns of Newark, Retford and Gainsborough. Local attractions and activities include:

  • University City of Lincoln with its wonderful Cathedral, famous for the mischievous Lincoln Imp, (see if you can find it inside).
  • Lincoln’s Norman Castle which now has a dedicated area to house one of the three original copies of the Magna Carta.
  • The new Bomber Command Centre, is just on the edge of the city
  • Newark Castle and Civil War Centre
  • Lincolnshire Showground
  • Newark Showground
  • Gainsborough Old Hall
  • Doddington Hall and Farm Shop
  • Pay and Play golf course within 2 miles
  • Close to Sustrans Bike trail - Lincoln to Clumber Park
  • Sundown Adventure Land
  • Go Ape in Sherwood Pines
  • The Major Oak in Sherwood Forest


Lincolnshire has lots of aviation heritage including the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre. The Red Arrows display team can often be seen practicing over Scampton from the comfort of a deck chair on site.

In the next door village (1.3miles) there is a pub that serves food, and also an Indian restaurant which also provides a take-away and delivery service. There are several other local pubs serving excellent food. We are lucky to have the outstanding Courtyard Tearoom on the farm serving delicious home cooked food and fabulous cakes. There is a well-stocked village shop and post office within walking distance, which also sells Calor gas.

The field surrounding the site is sown to a pollen and nectar flower mix to enhance the environment. In summer it is a picture of flowers and butterflies. The surrounding fields are full of wildlife, and it is not uncommon to see deer, rabbits, hares and the occasional badger. The farm hosts a variety of birds including barn owls, kestrels, peewits, skylarks and field fares.

There is plenty to keep you occupied for a stay at Hall Farm CL whatever your interests, or you can just come and relax and unwind at our rural site.

Great site

We booked this at the last minute. Alison could not have been more helpful. Access is really good. Her instructions were great. We felt relaxed upon arrival. All the pitches are hardstanding and there is plenty of space. Regarding slopes, these are really not much at all. It is not far from Lincoln and other places of interest. Although we had a considerable amount of overnight rain, it was very reassuring that the site remained free of water. We will happily stay there again and may well bring the bikes as the area is quite flat! Unfortunately we had to curtail our stay so missed a visit to the Courtyard Tea Room, which we were looking forward to.

Easy to get too

Our first stop at Hall Farm, Very good booking and arrival, easy access to the field. Some pitches have quite a slope on them but we managed to get one that was level. Alison comes round in the evening to collect payment. Everything worked perfectly. A word of caution is that the site backs onto the busy A57 so expect some road noise. We walked quite a bit in the area, very pretty as is the village of Newton on Trent, we also found a walk along the River Trent.

Great stopover CL not far from A1

We stayed here in July for 3 nights to break up our journey from Durham to Kent. It was easy to find although we read the instructions incorrectly and had to ring for help. The owners were very responsive and helpful. Alison was there to meet us at the gate and gave us a selection of pitches. Some were sloped, others less so. We picked the one that was fairly level though did require a ramp under one wheel. Nothing too difficult to do. All the fixed pitches are hard standing but you can go on the grass if you want. The campsite is on a nice gated field with well cut grass and plenty of room for 5 vans. One side overlooks a field with views across farmland. Each pitch has electric and there is one tap In the field to share. The elsan emptying point is at one corner of the field and is clean and well kept. There are walks nearby, some that lead to the river Trent if you want to venture that way. It is also close to Sherwood Forest, Clumber park and of course Lincoln. The hosts were excellent, answered all our questions and gave good advice. Overall, this is a great CL with easy access off the A1 and A57. We would certainly use it when we next venture that way from Kent. It is what it is and I cannot find anything negative to say about it.
