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.

Perfection

Darwood House Farm
We like the CL sites and this one is just perfect. A week was just not long enough. A huge thank you to Sarah and Dave who work so hard to make Darwood House Farm a special place. You certainly succeed. It is a peaceful oasis of calm. Lots of interesting wildlife including owls, hares, hedgehogs and even a muntjac deer. We will certainly be staying here again.

Last minute stay .

Darwood House Farm
The owner managed to fit us in for the weekend due to a cancellation which was lucky for us as we found it very relaxing and enjoyable.You just down the road for Woodhall Spa or Horncastle.We had a pleasant walk through the golf course at Woodhall from which you can even walk along the old railway line to Horncastle. The site is very peace full and we enjoyed watching the wild life. There was a Barn Owl both mornings in the adjacent meadow, pleasing to watch. We were made welcome by the owners and would stay again.

Excellent Site with beautiful country side views

Darwood House Farm
We have just returned from our first visit to Darwood House Farm, having stayed there for a week and what a wonderful, peaceful site it is. When we arrived on the Friday it was raining quite heavily but this did not prevent us getting a warm welcome from our host, who still went out of his way to show us to our pitch and relay all the necessary information to us regarding site facilities, nearby facilities and interesting local walks etc. Just as a point of note the site is an immaculately kept grass sight, but it is also extremely well draining and coped easily with the heavy rainfall we had over our first couple of days stay. The pitches are spacious fairly level with fantastic country side views, the perfect spot to just sit and relax. There is an abundance of wonderful wildlife to watch - hares, pheasants, but best of all there is a resident barn owl which can be seen most morning's and evening's hunting over the adjacent meadow. The village of Woodall Spa is around 21/2 to 3 miles away (5 minute drive) and well worth a visit with a good variety of local shops, bars cafes and ample car parking. If you feel up to it Woodall Spa is also within easy walking distance from the site and the local roads are fairly quite, or you could do as we did and follow our host's suggestion and park at a purpose made lay-by on Sandy Lane and walk along the Viking trail, through the golf course into Woodall Spa which is a lovely wooded walk of about 2 miles. The East coast is within easy reach with Skeggy, Mablethorpe, Chappell St Leonards' and Ingoldmells within 45/ 55 minutes of the site. With Covid-19 restrictions still being in place we were aware that the toilets and showers would be closed and this wasn't a problem for us as we used our onboard facilities. As I said at the begging of this review this was our first visit to the site, but it's certainly not our last and I'm sure if you decide to spend some time here you will not be disappointed.

Second visit

Darwood House Farm
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

Darwood House Farm
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.
