Why stay here ...
Dakota Park caravan site is on the B1192 just outside Coningsby. We are a small 5 van Certificated Location with friendly and helpful staff. Self catering cottage also available adjacent.
We have a pretty site with some stunning sunsets and sunrises.
Just up the road is RAF Coningsby and "The Battle of Britain memorial flight" so we get plenty of action with all types of planes from the old Chipmunks, spitfires, the Dakota and the Lancaster to the up-to-date Typhoons etc. If it's a peaceful quiet site you want then this is not the place, the planes fly regularly during the week and very often a display is put on with the pilots training for the big shows. It can get very exciting especially when they are flying right over your head! We have even built a 10 foot high bank so you can get a better view of the planes.
There are a vast amount of country pubs with home cooked food, cafes, Chinese, Italian and Indian restaurants. We are also very close to Woodhall Spa, Horncastle, Boston and Lincoln for some exciting shopping and site seeing.
We will welcome your dogs as long as they are well behaved and they don't disturb other members. There are some stunning walks with fantastic scenery.
If you love plane spotting then this is the place to come and stay. The planes fly regularly during the week but finish Friday lunch time for the weekends. You get to see all the Typhoons training and the old Battle of Britain planes like the Spitfire, Hurricane, The Dakota and The Lancaster plus lots of visiting aircraft, so this is an exciting place to come but not if its peace and quiet that your looking for, the planes are noisy and the road can be busy at times but the planes and excitement surely make up for it.
Runway cottage has a lovely bright and sunny open plan kitchen/ lounge with all mod cons, large flat screen t.v, hob, oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer etc.
A large modern shower room with large shower and constant hot water, toilet, wash hand Basin and fluffy soft towels.
A stunning double bedroom with a comfy double bed and fluffy warm quilt, you can even lay in bed and watch the planes go out to play. There is an extra double day bed if needed for the little ones to stay in the same room as you.
Outdoor seating area with table and chairs, fire pit / BBQ all in a fenced off pretty garden so you can bring your dog and know it is safe. There are some stunning dog walks.
You have your own parking spaces.
We are very close to coningsby, Tattershall and Woodhall Spa so there are lots of lovely tea rooms, country pubs with home cooked food and lots of local activities places of interest to visit. Close by there is fishing, farm parks, golf and lots more.
We now have a luxury jacuzzi, outdoor lounge and bar area for hire.
Michelle looks forward to welcoming you to her CL.

We were drawn to Dakota Park having read about its proximity to RAF Coningsby and the potential to see military aircraft coming and going, including the RAF Typhoon Display Team practices (three slots made available, generally only the mid morning and afternoon slots were used). That said there were comings and goings of aircraft during the day, including the display team practices during the week. From our point of view we were delighted. If you aren't in to aircraft I don't believe they were particularly intrusive. Best of both worlds. The directions in the members' book and also given by the owner are good However do be aware the CL is off a long straight road and a night time arrival has to have a considered approach. It is signed and the owner's directions are good. If you overshoot it isn't a disaster. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the owner who gave us the choice of pitch and a comprehensive folder full of information about the local area with things to see and do. The CL is quite new (2 years old) and it shows in the sparkling facilities(fresh water, grey water / elsan, rubbish & recycling). Pitches are modest in size (we are used to farmers fields!) but plenty of space for car, 'van and awning with space between units exceeding fire advice. Each pitch has a 16amp EHU. The local area is heaving in RAF history from WW2 to the present day. RAF Consingsby hosts the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The visitor centre is free to enter, hanger tours at modest cost. Woodhall Spa, RAF Scampton (home of the Red Arrows), Lincolnshire Aviation Centre and many other aviation / WW2 themed destinations are all within modest driving distance. The rear of the CL overlooks open agricultural fields over which the most marvellous sunrises are to be seen, likewise in the evening some of the sunsets were stunning (Feb 2018). I marked the CL a four for peace & tranquillity due to occasional road noise and the odd aircraft movement. Also a four for beauty and scenery as we love hills and well Lincolnshire is renowned for being flat. That said the Lincolnshire Wolds are to be seen, not far from the CL either. Will we return? In a word yes. The CL is immaculate, charming owner and there is just so much history to see and visit. Gunby House and Tattersall Castle (both NT) are close by and are worth visiting. Nature reserves aren't far away either. Don't be put off by the proximity of the road or the aircraft, you don't want to miss a little gem of a CL.
