Why stay here ...

Pete and Marlene look forward to you visiting our tranquil CL site.  We are a smallholding situated on Heath land on what is known as the Lincoln Cliff, which gives us panoramic views over Fulbeck village and Lincolnshire countryside with Nottinghamshire in the distance. The site is part of a larger paddock; the pitches are lawned with an upper and lower terrace with post and rail fencing.

The site is an excellent base for exploring Lincoln, Newark, Grantham and Sleaford. The area boasts the first Roman road built in the UK called ‘The Fosse Way’. 

Nearby an unmetalled part of another famous Roman route ‘The Ermine Street’ is an ideal place for a walk or cycle rides.

About a mile away in Fulbeck there is the Manor Stables craft centre with a coffee shop, also a local pub that serves food.  In Caythorpe village two miles away is a grocery shop and two pubs that both serve meals. There is also a place nearby for coarse fishing.

We are within easy reach of all the Aviation heritage sites and museums.  The popular Waddington Air Show is about 11 miles from our site.

We are ideally situated for people wanting to visit antique fairs Known as Europes largest Antiques Fair the Newark International Antiques and Collectors Fair on the 14th 15th August 2014 is only 11 miles away from the site.

Not too far from home

Holywell Farm
We chose this site as I had to take my ebike to nearby Leadenham to get serviced - and we were so glad we found it. We were made very welcome on our arrival - and we had the whole place to ourselves over the 4 days we were there. The site sits not far off the A17 - but you could barely hear the traffic. A public footpath runs through the site, so we took advantage of that one evening and walked a loop back to the campsite (the return was up the hill on the grass verge adjacent to the road). RAF Cranwell sits on the other side of the A17 so a cycle ride to nearby Navenby had us cycling back through the base after following the sat nav which also took us down a very rutted, challenging part of Ermine Street - the old Roman Road (more for pedestrian traffic really). We also cycled round the area on the CL side of the A17 and went through some lovely little villages - with some lovely little pubs with the all important beer garden! We also cycled to nearby Belton House - the cycle ride there was pretty quiet - but we chose to cycle back via Ancaster - on what we believed would be a relatively quiet B road - it wasn't - not to be repeated! We have booked to return in a couple of weeks as we want to explore this part of Lincolnshire a bit more - and with only being about 40 mins from home - we are not venturing too far to get away. We were situated in the bottom terrace which was very well kept. The sunsets were well worth sitting out in the freezing cold for, and it was lovely watching the kestrels toing and froing from their nesting site in the trees. Although we saw no red kites, we saw plenty other birds of prey as well as a couple of deer walking across a nearby field. It was lovely to get away after months being cooped up in the house!

Amazing sunsets and stunning views

Holywell Farm
We chose this CL as a stopover en route to East Anglia. It was its location close to the A17 which really chose it for us. We are so pleased we picked this one. On arrival we were greeted by the owner who was friendly and helpful and showed us the facilities. We were allowed to pick our own (grass) pitch out of the four available. We set the van up facing out over the vista from this hillside location. Looking out to the north west we had stunning views towards Newark and what looked like the whole of Nottinghamshire. We arrived on the third hottest day of the year and as evening wore on we caught the inevitable thunderstorm. Finally the clouds parted just as the sun fell to the horizon and we were treated to the most spectacular sunset. Absolutely beautiful. The following day we set off (without a map) and walked across corn fields and country roads to the village of Caythorpe where the local pub was having a beer festival. Very nice but a long walk. After the stay was over the owner was very helpful in directing me back to the busy A17 without needing to cross at the busy (high speed) junction I had used on arrival. We will return to this site as it was a memorable and very peaceful visit

Little gem

Holywell Farm
What an absolute gem of a site this one is! We have just spent a weekend here - the views are stunning - the wildlife we experienced was amazing - so quiet - not a sound except that of the buzzards and kestrels flying over our van. Pitch was of a good standard, amenities were ample and we couldn't wait to book another visit, so we did before we left. Lovely friendly owners - well worth a visit. I am sure this will go down on our 'log' as being one to keep returning to.

Lovely views

Holywell Farm
We called into this site twice as a stop off place to and from Suffolk/Norfolk as its just off the Newark/Sleaford road. Fantastic views and sunsets.... We saw 5 buzzards at once in the sky and a variety of other bird life!! Very reasonably priced to boot .
