Why stay here ...
A quiet, secluded site in the parkland of an old house called Elkington Hall which was built in 1842 by William Smyth, whose family can be traced back to the 14th century. The house was a large, rather plain building, its most notable feature being its tower. It was demolished in 1960's. This CL now offers a spacious site, with well-tended level and grassy pitches. Hard-standing pitches are also available.
Set in the Lincolnshire Wolds, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (ANOB), a place of rolling chalk hills, hidden valleys and fine views.
Louth, known as the capital of the Wolds, is a charming market town with narrow winding streets, old inns, splendid Georgian houses and St James Church which provides a backdrop to this popular town. It is also famous for its butchers, Lincolnshire sausage, stuffed chine, and pork pies. Louth has a market every Wednesday and Saturday and offers a variety of entertainment at the Playgoers Riverhead Theatre and the Playhouse Cinema.
If you enjoy walking there are plenty of dog friendly walks from the site (leaflet in the hut), and Louth is 2.5 miles away across the fields or on the pavement.

My last review of this lovely CL related to a fantastic stay in July 2018. Well we went back a couple of weeks ago intending to stay 3 days, we loved it so much we stayed 10 days. The site is just as it was the last time that is it is a wonderful site perfect for walking the Lincolnshire Wolds and enjoying peace quiet scenery and wildlife. With Buzzards mewing and soaring overhead as Long-tailed tits flit back and forth looking at their reflections in the car windows. There is one big improvement though and that is the entrance which is wider proving no worries getting in and out. And our hosts well they were perfect hosts checking we were OK for everything, but otherwise letting us relax and enjoy the paradise which is Estate Office CL.
