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.

A Great Place & Plenty of Space

Having been locked down for so long the first place we wanted to go was The Estate Office. Its perfect for us, and our grandchildren love it here. We all had a smashing time with plenty of walks and room for the kids to play, it couldnt be better. Walks from this site are wonderful and the wildlife is fantastic Buzzard and Red Kite are often about, Buzzard even landing in the trees next to the site. Despite very heavy rain and hail showers the site was dry within about an hour or so of it stopping so even pitching on the well tended grass is not an issue but don't worry there is a hardstanding for everyone if the weather is very very bad. Will we go again of course we will as its just perfect with all you need for a peaceful stay.

Perfectly peaceful

This site is perfect if like us you want space, and you are self contained and want no frills and no fuss. A gem of a site on a well protected lawn set in beautiful parkland. We shared the enormous level field with three other caravans and we all had loads of space. We never saw the owners although pre arrival information was good. Elsan and water points were clean and worked well, and we even had our morning paper deliverd by a local shop. Perfect for us and our two dogs.

Ideal CL on hard standing or nicely mown Grass

We have been to this site on numerous occasions and always had a very warm welcome. The condition of the site is always well kept and grass closely mown. The information hut has all local information for the local area. Louth a loverly market Town is only 5 mins away by car or you can walk across the fields.

Disappointed

Well, after reading previous reviews we booked a week here. On arrival the signage and entrance look very tired (driving by a fully loaded skip doesn't make a good impression). The owner very briefly said hello then left us to it, leaving the site himself to go away for a few days. The field was nice and tidy and the grass freshly mowed. Our first problem was when we wanted toast and tea for breakfast on our first morning and tripped the electrics! Take note future visitors, electricity on this site is just 10 amp. I must admit it states this fact in the site's blurb so our fault for not reading through fully. Anyway, it was easy to reset thankfully as the cover was almost hanging off the electric box! The information hut is very tired, as is the information within. Interestingly, the Caravan Club certificate is on full view, clearly stating that the site is registered for 5 pitches. Why then were there 7 pitches in use!!! These weren't just turn up on the off chance visitors, they had all booked and that's our main gripe. Anyway, after a couple of days of barking dogs and road noise ... yes, it's beside a busy road ... we decided to call it a day and head home early!! Sorry, this one's most definitely not for us!
