Please Note: Price is for a fully serviced pitch which includes water, waste water, free wifi and electricity.

Our aim is for a relaxing tranquil break for Adults only so we have designed the pitches so that each caravaner has privacy within their own caravan. The site area is flat, lawned, with all pitches having hard standings and are fully serviced with Wi-Fi connections available. Own Sanitation is required and pets are welcome. We have a 2 acre field adjacent for you to exercise them. Cars are parked adjacent to site, again to enhance the quiet feel. Blue Badge holders can park on pitch.

The site is on the Lincolnshire/Cambridgeshire borders and is an excellent base for exploring Peterborough, Stamford, Spalding, Bourne and Market Deeping as Deeping St. James is central to these towns and city with public transport to these locations.

Set in a quiet lane a few minutes walk from the picturesque village centre. Pubs, restaurants, shops and leisure centre are all nearby. Or walk from the site along the banks of the River Welland into Market Deeping (small market town). The Deepings and many of the surrounding villages have a Cotswold appearance, and are steeped in history. The area is ideal for walking and cycling as the countryside is rolling to flat terrain.

Walks from site to river and nature reserve as well as to pubs and shops.

A day visit to London is easily accessible by train for sight seeing or evening theatre.

A wonderful relaxing break

This is the best CL site that we have ever been to, the owners have obviously spent alot of time and effort getting this site to such a high standard, they seem to have thought of everything, great hardstanding, good space between units, a fantastic welcome, with detailed information pack on arrival, the owners are really friendly and approachable, there is a great local walk around the river, we also hired a car from the local rental dealer to give us some great days out, I can especially recommend Rutland Water, the thing I don't understand is why it was so quiet, I thought a site like this would be packed all the time, but it wasn't , we had most of the site to ourselves all week, a great CL in a beautiful area.

Best CL site we have visited

From the booking made on the phone to our departure the whole experience and stay was fantastic. We downloaded the route given on the website for the best way to get to the site and they were very clear and precise. A warm welcome on our arrival and we were really impressed with the layout and condition of every aspect of the site, each of the 5 pitches had EHU grey and drinking water with free WiFi thrown in. With the central layout of the services each pitch was very very private which made for a very relaxing stay. We took some walk from the Information room and enjoyed the lovely local village and river. No wonder this site has got so many awards.....Yes its £20 but as in life you get what you pay for. WONDERFUL !!!!!!!!!!

Excellent

our fIrst visit, and will not be the last! We booked after recommendation from my sister, booking was easy, one phone call a few questions and deposit paid, The owner was very pleasant on the phone and this followed through our stay. The day before our arrival I received a courtesy call informing me that they wouldn't be there to greet us due to a prior commitment, however, their daughter would be there. I thought it was lovely that they took the time to inform us. on arrival we met with Helen the owners daughter, we sorted payment and a information pack was given to us not just about the facilities but surrounding area, things to do places to visit etc. The pitches are excellent and of very high standard! I would say one of the best CL sites. The whole ease of setting up was due to it being well thought out. The pitches are of very high standard. The privacy of each pitch is a very welcome change and we were thankful for that. We saw the owner a few times but not once did they trouble us, obviously he asked if everything was ok for us. If you need a site with excellent facilities this is the one to choose. The place is immaculate. DONOT USE THE SAT NAV, follow the well detailed directions on their website and you will get there no bother. Had lovely stay 4 night stay, loved it. Sue

If you're thinking of running your own CL, go here first to see how it can be done.

We were looking for a relaxing break in the Peterborough area so that we could both do some sightseeing and visit family in south Lincolnshire. Having looked at various sites, including the Club's own site at Ferry Meadows we decided to try Keal Lodge, based mainly on the very positive reviews on here. We were not disappointed. Everything about our visit went smoothly, even when wanting to change our arrival and departure dates at the last minute, and nothing was too much trouble for our wonderful hosts, Alison and Keith. We have stayed at a number of CL's over the last few years, some good some not so, but they have introduced and implemented so many good ideas (for example the Information handbook that every caravanner or motorhomer gets to use for the duration of their stay) that we felt anyone who either currently runs or is thinking of setting up a CL should visit here to see what can be achieved. The site was superbly maintained, (note there is no shower block or toilet, so you will need to use your own facilities) with level hard-standing fully serviced pitches. Access from the main roads is good as long as you follow their directions as the local town of Deeping St. James has some narrow streets with sharp bends. All in all, a lovely few days (even with the very strong winds we had). Thank you, Lynne and Geoff.

10 stars

We stayed over for a short break on route to a campsite a further 3 hours away which we had booked for a longer stay. We wish we had booked our full holiday at this site, to make amends we have booked a week in September. If you prefer to use your caravan facilities then this site offers everything you could wish for, fully serviced secluded pitches manicured lawns with shrubs and flowers to rival Kew gardens and a good dog walk area. The welcome on arrival is often mentioned as part of a sites strong point, many could learn from the way that is carried out here, by the time you are on site you feel like old friends, this coupled with an information pack that could take all week to read. All in all you could not ask for more from a CL. We now hope to become regulars in Keal Lodge in the years to come. Terry and Viv
