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.

Wonderful site

West View is one of the best CL's we have ever stayed on and we stay on many. The size of the pitches are huge and the condition they are kept in is wonderful. It would be fantastic if every CL was as good as this one especially the size of pitch, you actually feel that you have space. The openness of the site also allows you to enjoy the sun which again was in abundance when we were staying. I would recommend this site to everyone who likes peace and tranquillity and hopefully there will be a space for us when we re-visit. Many thanks and thanks for the effort that you put in to achieve such a wonderful CL. Regards Steph and Dave

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.
