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.

Bliss

Arrived for a couple of nights. A lovely tranquil site with an 'information hut' with lots of leaflets for walks in the local area. Peaceful and a great location for visiting the various air bases, Lincoln and beyond. A well maintained site that is a pleasure to visit.

What Peace, What Views, What Walks

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.

An Estate of Peace

This CL is our idea of heaven, Minus points are very few; Take care negotiating the final entrance to the site itself. Its worth having someone watch the back of long caravans as you turn in. Now the plus points; Far away from the madding crowds. Surrounded by lovely scenery with fabulous walking country everywhere. A short walk to an ice cream and coffee shop (Fantastic Iced Cream) Well drained large site with plenty of shade if required in hot weather. Lovely owners. Wildlife abounds, at night the Little Owls call to each other from surrounding trees and buildings. Buzzard soaring above the site. Small bird species everywhere. Shops a very short drive away in the lovely historic market town of Louth. Overall its a BRILLIANT CL with lots of places to explore near and a little further. PLEASE DON'T TELL ANYONE, Oh no its to late

The "Secret Garden" of CL sites

Maybe it was because we were the only vans there at first but when you arrive at this site it really does feel just a little bit like you've stepped into a secret garden. Access is easy though the new format C&MC signs do little to help spot the turning and we overshot it by a few yards. Facilities are basic but functional and the owner has gone to a lot of trouble to provide a useful information hut complete with books to borrow. There's a little bit of traffic noise during rush hour but nothing serious even for a light sleeper like me. As usual I've created a short video which can describe the site far better than I can feel free to view it here. https://youtu.be/On-qdMEtZCQ

Oh what a beauty!

What a wonderful CL. Peace and quite. Well maintained. Great walking over the wolds with well marked footpaths from the site. Louth has some lovely shops and restaurants. Try 'The Ranch' restaurant and Hubbard Hills for a days picnic and splash in the stream. We would certainly would recommend this site!
