Why stay here ...

Darwood House is a 15th Century settlement set in 20 acres of parkland - a rural and tranquil retreat. A 2 acre lawn CL site, spacious grass pitches with 16 amp EHU and superior shower and toilet facility.

Enjoy the beautiful, elevated uninterrupted views of true Lincolnshire on this south facing sheltered site. The whole CL site is fully underdrained with a very large gated entrance with traditional oak gates and Lincolnshire fencing.

Darwood nestles in a valley approximately half a mile form the world reknowned Woodhall Spa golf course, the home of English golf. The historic Lincolnshire spa village of Woodhall Spa is close by. Here you will find many quality, independent retailers together with a variety of restaurants, cafes and coffee shops that cater for the most discerning of tastes. An abundance of leisure facilities at Jubilee Park - tennis, bowls and a full size outdoor heated swimming pool with Lido.

In the evening, why not take a visit to the world famous 'Kinema in the Woods' and turn back the clock 70 years? With excellent cycling and walking routes throughout the area together with the nearby river Witham there really is something for all interests.

Take advantage of the opportunity to visit the historic airfields of WW2 that surround the Darwood House area. Ranging from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight to the Lancaster and its taxy runs at East Kirkby airfield, and of course, the Petwood Hotel at Woodhall Spa, home of 617 Dambusters squadron.

The Roman town of Horncastle is a short drive away with its many antique shops, banks, supermarkets, etc.

The Cathedral city of Lincoln is just 30 minutes away with its magnificent medieval Cathedral and castle.

For friends and family members wishing to join you whilst staying on our CL we have a traditional Shepherd's Hut which can sleep 2.

A warm welcome always awaits you at Darwood where we will endeavour to give you our very best traditional Lincolnshire hospitality.

We've just had 4 magical days at this site, probably the best CL we've stopped at.

We've just had 4 magical days at this site, probably the best CL we've stayed at. The site owners Sarah and David are extremely helpful, great hosts and provide an idyllic retreat, a haven of peace and tranquillity, the abundant bird song is the only sound you hear, great location for a quiet holiday. I would highly rate this site 5 out of 5

Peaceful quiet site

Darwood house farm is just a couple of miles from Woodhall Spa- a small market town. The site is grass (gently slopes- pitches are relatively flat) and has electric hook up etc. What it does not have (but advertises) is WIfi. I was told this activates "near the house but not in the caravans". for many this may not be an issue, but needing to do some work whilst there - thank heavens for mobile tethering. There is a huge shower room (shower is disappointing- a woman would struggle to wash her hair) and two toilets- both very well kept and a two minute walk away. If you just want peace and quiet its a wonderful place to be. Slighly more expensive than other CL sites (£18 per night). Would I return? Possibly just to get away from it all, but only for a couple of days. 4/5 stars for me

Peace, tranquility and enjoyment

Lincolnshire has always conjured up flat, uninteresting landscape and mammoth drives from one little town to the other - HOWEVER our week, spent at this beautiful, quiet site has caused us to re-evaluate. Woodhall Spa is a lovely little village with local shops and a gentle atmosphere. The teahouse in the woods is a must. Fantastic food and excellent service. Afterwards you can visit the unusual Kinema in the woods showing all the latest films. The Petwood Hotel is also a lovely backdrop to enjoy your lunch. The area is extremely interesting and we've realised that Lincolnshire is an extremely underrated area, so much so that if we were retiring, Woodhall Spa would be an excellent home! Finally, the owners have been obliging and helpful. The site is a picture with excellent facilities and a beautiful panoramic view. Close enough to Woodhall Spa, yet far enough away to make you feel as though you were miles from anywhere. Bring your bikes and cycle around the area, or put on your walking boots and enjoy the wildlife. We're trying to work out how soon we can return!
