Why stay here ...

Nutty Cottage caravan site is set in an official Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the edge of the historic market town of Louth and is part of a 7 acre site, most of which is accessible to members.  Visitors can enjoy sweeping views of the Lincolnshire Wolds, spot wildlife (keep an eye out for deer, rabbits and various birds of prey) and take a stroll through the boundless countryside. In the summer, the sun setting over the Wolds might just take your breath away, while all year round City-folk can take in the night sky like never before.

With five 16-AMP hook-ups, water and waste disposal, the adult-only site has everything you need for a relaxing break – but if you require anything else, owners Jane and Mike are just across the field to help out or offer advice on the local area.

If you fancy a trip into Louth or Mablethorpe the bus stops right outside the gate, while Cadwell Park is six miles down the road. Nutty Cottage is a 10-minute walk from the Royal Oak (known locally as The Splash) for good food and ales, and there is a convenience store less than a mile away. If you’re a golf lover the 18-hole Kenwick course adjoins the site.

Caravans with two people are charged £12 per night for either grass or hardstanding. Dogs are welcome, and although we ask you to keep them on a lead around the caravans, there’s a huge field on site where they can run to their heart’s content! The site is also perfect for barbecues. We’re open all year round.

We are sorry but electric cars cannot be charged on this CL.

Great little site for exploring Louth area.

Well organised little site with our pitch marked on a board. Mike & Jane were great host's supplying us with a local map & tips on places to visit. The recommendation of Hunters fish n chips on Newmarket Road was spot on. We enjoyed driving into Louth (5mins) & doing lovely walks by the old canal & Hubbard's Hills area. We had a right mixture of weather with heavy rains. The ground became quite soggy but never got to the point of causing a problem. The ground drained quite quickly too. Plenty of area's to exercise dog on site which proved to be a great asset. Electrics very reliable, some road noise but not enough to cause an issue. All in all a great CL, we will no doubt return.

Well prepared for our arrival.

It’s always comforting to know where your pitch is when you arrive at a site. Nutty Cottage has it sorted, a large board at the entrance with your name and allocated pitch...spot on. 16 amp EHU and great water pressure at the tap, perfect. The site would otherwise be a perfect tranquil settings had it not been for a busy B road adjacent to the site. In all fairness though, while personally sensitive to noise at night, it must have gone very quiet or the wooded perimeter deadened the sound of the occasional car. Signal strength for Internet was fine for streaming and similarly tv signal was fine. This is a adult only site which was perfect for us and about 30 to 40 minutes to the coast. Although a bit of a jaunt on foot, a 15 minute walk along a B road without footpath, the Royal Oak, also known as ‘The Splash’ is a must do visit. It’s in an absolutely idyllic setting and it’s only when you get there that you understand how it got its second name. A spacious, well kept site that I would personally highly recommend.

Great little site.

After staying at this site we went to the club site at Ferry Meadows, now we will be sticking to CLs from here on in. The site was tidy, spacious, plenty of room to walk the dog and the owners could not have been more friendly and helpful. The only down side was the road noise from mad motor cyclists but it was not that often and after a while it did not really bother us. Unlike Ferry Meadows where I had to pay for a WiFi connection, here the phone signal strength was so good I could stream a movie and the TV reception was good unlike Ferry Meadows where we got no reception art all! The other comparison with Ferry Meadows is of course children, we won't go there. We can thoroughly recommend this site.

One night stay

Lovely peaceful site with plenty of dog walks for our dog. Before we set off from home we were informed that there was a board with names and the site allocated to us. All we had to do on arrival was look at the board and park accordingly. We parked up and everything was fine so we took our dog for a walk into Louth. It is very scary as there are no pavements. The traffic was driving past us at 60 miles per hour and we felt unsafe walking to the nearest supermarket and pub. When we returned to the site we found a person looking into our van and acting suspiciously. We asked him what he wanted and even though it was raining, he wanted us to move to the plot next door. They had decided after we'd arrived to change things and the board had also been altered. Obviously, as it was only a one night stay we didn't want to move and didn't. We will not be returning as the whole problem ruined our weekend. There was also no explanation or apology.

Won't be rushing back

We stayed here for 2 nights in early December. Well located for visiting Louth and the coast with easy access from a main road. The owners in the nearby house were friendly and helpful. However, we will not be returning as we found the road noise really intrusive, even inside the van with everything shut. We would certainly not want to sit outside in the summer, which is a shame as the site is visually very attractive. The other problem was the mud. The hardstandings are narrow and you have to access your door from the adjoining grass, which was a quagmire when we were there. Also very poor mobile signal (EE).
