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.

Second visit

This has to be the most peaceful site we've been to. Tucked away in gorgeous countryside yet just 6 miles from Woodhall Spa, it's the perfect spot to just sit and relax. It's wonderful to watch the wildlife - hares, muntjac, pheasants, a good variety of birds and, best of all a beautiful barn owl can be seen morning and evening hunting over the fields. Our only slight disappointment this time was the fact that the toilet and shower weren't open. Understandable at the moment with covid still doing the rounds, and it wasn't a problem for us as we used our onboard facilities but we received an email before leaving home saying the shower was closed but nothing about the toilet which we just presumed would be open. Anyway, if you are reading this intending to visit it's perhaps a good idea to confirm with the owners if their facilities are open. It certainly didn't detract from a lovely stay and hopefully we'll be back again soon.

Always a fantastic stay

We've been coming to this site every summer for several years. The hosts are so welcoming. Nothing is too much trouble. The site is always immaculate. And always tranquil. The sights and sounds of local wildlife are wonderful to enjoy. The views are beautiful. What sunsets we've enjoyed. There is loads of space. Just exactly what we look for in a CL.

Well run site

A very well-run site, run with military precision, we were shown exactly where to pitch the caravan, including which way to face, so no decisions for us to make! Due to Covid restrictions, the shower and toilet were not available - not a problem as we usually prefer to use our own facilities anyway. We did think the price was a bit high @ £18 though. A word regarding dogs - 1 or 2 are welcome, but 2 is the maximum (not mentioned when booking).

Excellent relaxing Trip

we have just spent 4 nights at Darwood House Farm. On arrival we were shown to our immaculate pitch, complete with EHU. The owners were excellent with their information on local attractions and the local dog walks, which was excellent as we had our 2 dogs with us. The site is kept immaculate, and is very peaceful and quiet. We would highly recommend this CL site, and shall definitely be visiting again.

lovely site

We have just enjoyed a few days at this peaceful, clean site. The caravans and motorhomes are will spaced out and the pitch is mainly level. We were given a warm welcome and lots of information about the farm and area. Due to the covid restrictions the toilet and shower room was shut but we are used to using our own facilities, so this was no problem. We did a lot of walking within the area, and was suprised how pretty the Lincolnshire Wolds are. Due to being high risk, we didn't visit any towns or villages, but did drive through them and will go back when life returns to normal. Gibralter Point was very interesting as was the small zoo near Skegness. A nice site, my only downside, was lack of hand gel near the taps and bins, but a small thing really. Would recommend this site if you are looking for peace and quiet.
