Why stay here ...

Hilltop Farm is a quiet site with open views across the Lincolnshire countryside, but within 10 minutes walk of Saltfleet village, which has a shop with a cafe and filling station, fish and chip shop, two pubs and easy access to the beach.

The site itself is located on a lawned field and all pitches have electric hook-ups and space for awnings. It is an adults only site, mainly because there is an unfenced wide drainage waterway alongside the field. There is access next to the site to one of several public footpaths in the area. Despite the name, there are no hills! The village field is approximately 100 yards away where dogs can be exercised.

For nature lovers there are many wild birds, including pheasants, owls, swans, ducks and moorhen and if you are lucky in the evening or early morning, you may see roe deer, muntjac deer, badgers or even a fox.

The site is a good base for exploring both the Lincolnshire coast and the Wolds, being 9 miles from Mablethorpe and also 9 miles from Louth, which is dubbed the Capital of the Lincolnshire Wolds and is a charming traditional market town.  

The grey seal breeding grounds at Donna Nook (mid October to December) are only a 10 minute drive from the site.

Please note that entering the post code into a sat nav brings you to the centre of Saltfleet village on the A1031. Louth Road is a turning off the main A road next to the filling station.

In praise of hilltop farm

Visited Hilltop Farm at the beginning of Sept and we were the only van on site. Talk about being spoilt with unrestricted, fantastic views across the surrounding countryside. Wild life abounds, particularly as they had been harvesting nearby fields and the deer were on the move. It is a gem of a site. There are numerous footpaths leading from or near the site and the owners very kindly provided a map of the area showing them. Dogs are well catered for with a nearby playing field where they can be exercised off lead. Shops and pubs are within walking distance. The facilities were conveniently sited and discreetly hidden behind bushes. The owners work hard to keep the site immaculate. They are also very welcoming and approachable and we received free plums during our stay which was a lovely kind gesture. Would I stay again. Definitely if I was visiting the area. Highly recommended

Fantastic site

We stayed at Hilltop Farm for four nights but wish we could have stayed for longer. It was so peaceful and open with beautiful views. Tricia and Brian couldn't have been more welcoming. We were welcomed with a bag of plums from their garden which were delicious. We felt so at ease on our pitch. There is a hideout at the far end of the field where you can take a cup of tea or a glass of wine and watch all the wildlife. There is a small supermarket, petrol station and a couple of pubs all within walking distance. As most people have mentioned in their reviews you must try the fish and chips. You won't be disappointed! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Thank you Tricia and Brian. See you again soon.

Perfect

We have just enjoyed a wonderful two week stay at Hilltop Farm. This site is the pride and joy of Tricia and Brian who keep it immaculate, the site has a coded gate entrance, the dust bin and recycling are emptied daily and the grass is kept very short. The owners are happy to help with anything you require from pitching to local knowledge and are keen to make sure your stay is a happy one. The site is in a very beautiful location, close to a recreation field for those who need dog walking. The site has a field drain along its edge which is full of wildlife whilst there we saw roe deer, coot moor hen, weasel, swans and cygnets and Canada geese. There is a bird hide for closer observations. We walked out onto the salt marsh and across the beach and through Saltfleet haven, Gerry pretty. We cycled along the very quiet lanes, watching the combine harvester bring the crop in and the bailer make short work of the straw so interesting. The sunsets are amazing and the views far reaching. Within a short drive are the lovely seaside towns of Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea, good coffee and ice cream. We thought the nicest local pub was the Axe and Cleaver at North Somercotes. The local fish and chips were good but large portions. We loved our stay and cannot recommend highly enough. Thank you Tricia and Brian for a fabulous stay and being so welcoming.

Super little site

Just returned from 3 nights wonderful nights at Hilltop Farm. We had a lovely warm welcome from Tricia. She showed us our pitch and the best way to pitch up too. The ground is a little uneven so you will more than likely need your levellers, but you can just about get away with no using them as we did (basically because we had trouble using ours, only 2nd time out in our van and have a lot of learning to do!), van was a little uneven but nothing that couldn't be tolerated. Tricia helped us with the awning too, there was a bit of a stiff breeze at the time making it really hard to put up so her extra pair of hands were truly welcome :-) The site itself is lovely, well kept with a gated entrance. Pitches are really well spaced out and it's so quiet with a great view. Saw loads of dragon flies which was just lovely but no other wild life sadly. Site is located next to some footpaths and a couple of minute walk to the playing field where you can exercise your dogs which is just brilliant for the early morning and late evening walks. Tricia provided us with some really useful information and a map of the local area as well. We ended up not using any of the pubs in the village, we turned up at the New Inn on bingo night (Wednesday) and the pub was packed so we headed down the road to the Axe and Cleaver at North Somercotes and received a lovely warm welcome, the pub is dog friendly in the bar area but not in the lounge. The food we had was really nice too, we'd go back. We'd most definitely go back to Hilltop, Tricia and Brian made us feel very welcome and made sure we had everything we needed.

Can't wait to go back there

Just returned from a wonderfully relaxing long weekend at Hilltop Farm and we will definitely go back there. We received a warm welcome from Tish and Brian the owners of the CL who keep it immaculate and secure. There were 3 motorhomes including our own with loads of space and far reaching views. We took our wine with us into the bird hide, it was so peaceful. Not far into the village two good pubs, we only tried the New Inn which was very pleasant and good draught beer. Great fish and chips from the local chip shop. Definitely recommend it and can’t wait to go back there.
