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.

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.

Nothing better than this CL

We visit this site several times a year and have to say it's the best. On arrival you get a friendly welcome from Richard and Judith. They advise you on what pitches are available. Get yourself settled in and your all set for a great stay. Very quite and peaceful. Toilets and shower are available, information room and free WiFi. Just a few minutes down the road and you are in the Market town of Louth with great shops a good cinema and easy parking. There are lots of places of interest to visit or you can go to the coast. All within a short drive. There is a dog walk from the site in the adjacent field that belongs to the site. You can also walk around the village where the people are very friendly. All in all 10 out of 10. You wont find a better cl than this.

Easter Weekend

Just returned from a great week at this site. Weather was very wet for 1st hale and there was a little bit of flooding. Owners were away on Holiday and it was been looked after by Doug. It was our 1st visit to this site and area but will definitely not be the last. Doug did the owners proud and his attention to details and how he looked after us was 2nd to none ! We have recently reverted back to CL's from Club Sites as we prefer something a bit quieter. This site is a 'gem' and we will be returning ! Well done Doug.. keep up the good work !

Peace and quiet

This was our 4th visit to West view and we enjoyed our stay just as much as we have in previous visits. Access to the site is down a narrow lane, with no issues encountered On arrival there was a message posted informing us of the available pitches, and shortly afterwards we were met by Richard who had come across to make sure everything was OK. We were on pitch 2 which although slightly undulating was easy to level and pitch up. Grass as usual was cut short and clippings collected, the rest of the CL was immaculate and well cared for. Showers and WC included in the price of £15 per night - all facilities were clean and well looked after, there was a variety of bins for disposing of rubbish all itemised for recycling. The CL is within a short drive of Louth, which is a really nice traditional market town, we also visited Woodhall Spa, and Horncastle during our stay After spending 3 nights onsite it was a shame we had to leave and return to the rat race. This CL is perfect if you want to get away from it all and enjoy some peace and quiet
