Why stay here ...

We are situated in the middle of a quiet rural village away from the main road on the edge of the Wolds.

Our site is quiet and sheltered, not overlooked, set on the site of a redundant farmyard so we have plenty of space. All well-behaved caravanners and their pets are welcome. There is a 5 acre field for you to stretch your legs or exercise your dog. We have 6 chickens in the field, each with their own character but they are fenced in with a small patch of grass. Sometimes we have visitors in a field, kestrels, the occasional barn owl and munjac and hopefully no foxes.

The site has a flat grass surface with some hardcore base, which aids the sites' drainage. Each pitch has its own electric hook up (16 amps). There is one hard standing pitch on the car park also with electric hook up. Pitch 1 has a rubber membrane in the grass suitable for hard standing. There is plenty of room for awnings (groundsheets max 1 week down) and parking your vehicle.

We have a shower room (no charge) with a basin and toilet. There is also a separate toilet. There are laundry facilities and dryer at a small charge. In the separate toilet we have a selection of leaflets and information on local restaurants. A book swap operates.

The nearest shop (Co-op) and restaurant are situated 1.5 miles away at the Grimoldby/Manby crossroads. The site is centrally located for touring the Wolds countryside, the local market towns of Louth, Horncastle, Alford and Market Rasen, also for visiting the seaside towns of Sutton-on-Sea, Mablethorpe, Cleethorpes and Skegness. There are quieter beaches at Theddlethorpe, Huttoft Bank and Donna Nook where the seal colony have their pups in October, November and December. You can walk for miles and never meet a soul. Rimac is the nearest nature reserve.

Garden produce is sometimes available.

TV reception is good.

We have a CCTV system, which monitors the entrance to the site offering extra security to our guests.

From the site there are pleasant walks around our village. Some lead to the church and 1.5 miles away is a quiet walk to two nodding donkeys. Carry on along the bridle way and then by the Louth canal to reach the town of Louth about 4 miles. Some of our visitors walk in and taxi back.

The area close by is flat and reasonably quiet for cycling.

We are not suitable for group bookings as we like to keep the site quiet.

Fishing is available 3 miles away at Alvingham fisheries, which has carp, rudd, roach and bream.

Free Wi-fi is available.

As we live on site we are always available should you need us.

We look forward to meeting you.

Richard and Judith.

We love it here.

Just back from 10 days of heaven at this site. Just can't rate it high enough. So peaceful after a day out visiting all the local attractions. There is so much to do and see in the area. Also great places to eat out. If you want a relaxing break with no noise then this is the place. We will be back again soon.

FANTASTIC RELAXING AND FRIENDLY CL SITE

Stayed for 7 nights from 17th June 2019, and we loved our time there. Very warm and friendly welcome from Doug, who was looking after the site as the owners were on holiday. If you did not know the owners were away you would have thought Doug was the owner the way he looked after us and the site itself. Always there if you needed any help or information. Very informative about the area, even suggesting places to visit depending what you where looking for. A real gent. The site was immaculate in every way. Previous people have said in their reviews that the toilets and showers needed upgrading, but we found them very good and better that lots at other sites we have stayed at, and they were spotless and well stocked with all essentials. Plenty of space between pitches, giving you privacy. Very peaceful and quiet, and only a short drive to shop, pub etc. Easy driving to many places, with hardly any traffic, we drove everywhere and at times went miles without seeing another vehicle, taking in the stunning jaw dropping scenery. Will not think twice about returning next time we come to Lincolnshire.

Worth a stop!!!!

Personally I'm not a great fan of CLs, much prefer the Club sites. However, having stopped at this site for one night due to returning my new caravan to Couplands Caravans for some warranty work, I was impressed. The site was well maintained, lovely grass pitches, peaceful and a great open aspect across the fields. However, for me the site was totally let down by the one shower and two toilets, they were well tired and in urgent need of some tlc.

A peaceful CL

We stopped here in mid May 19'. We like peaceful CL's that accept dogs with a WC and if there is a shower then it's a bonus. West View has all of those things and it is easy to get to. The narrowest road you will encounter is the 100yds or so to the site when you turn off the main road. Facilities were spot on. Ground is level and beautifully maintained and if you have dogs then there is the grass paddock to exercise them in as well as a fair few local footpaths. Ok the village has no shop or pub. No big thing bring the beer & food with you. That said its not far to civilisation if you must. Try it. You might like it. We did and will be returning. Cheers Dave, Josie and Benson the Springer Spaniel.

Perfect CL To Chill Out.

Just returned from a three night stay over a bank holiday weekend and it was the perfect location to chill out and relax. Upon arrival we were able to take our pick where we wanted to pitch and we chose pitch 3. No issues with getting set up level and 30 minutes later we poured our first G&T's and from then on it was just pure relaxation. Facilities were spot on and the shower and toilets were kept immaculately clean. The waste & recycling area was screened off from view and again are very tidy. The village is very peaceful and during the evening and through the night it was so quiet you could have been in the middle of nowhere. Plenty of places to visit either in the wolds or on the coast all within a short drive so plenty to do. A 5 minute drive to the next village is a convenient co-op stocking essential supplies of beer, wine & gin which makes up for the lack of a village pub. All in all a site well worth visiting.
