Why stay here ...

CL of the Year 2008 - 2nd Place

Oaklea 5CL site is set within 16 acres of spectacular open parkland and tranquil woodland. Piotr welcomes you here to relax, chill out and de-stress. Most pitches are on grass with some hard-standings for motorhomes. All pitches are widely spaced and flat. Each pitch has access to a top-quality modern bollard supplying 16 amp electricity, water and a night-light. The site does not have a toilet block. Access is by a sweeping wide gravel driveway. An adjacent car park is provided to maintain tranquillity and protect the grass pitches.

We have planted 10 acres of pasture as parkland with rare and handsome tree and shrub species. The other 6 acres, mainly an oak, birch, rowan and beech woodland, are also planted with unusual woodland species. Mown grass and moss paths wind their way through the wood. Visitors are free to enjoy the arboretum and use the woodland garden walks for personal or dog exercise.

Since 1992 nearly 750 specially selected tree and shrub species, over 6,000 bulbs plus several herbaceous borders have been introduced to provide all year round colour and interest. New planting is always taking place. The carefully planted vistas, already a joy to behold, can only improve with time.

Oaklea is teeming with wildlife. Bird-lovers in particular will find Oaklea a paradise. We have all the common garden birds plus greater-spotted and green woodpeckers, nuthatches, tree creepers, nightingales, nightjars, woodcocks, tawny owls, barn owls, buzzards, sparrow hawks, jays, long-tailed tits, pied wagtails, swallows, cuckoos, pheasants, partridges, mallards and more. The Oaklea dawn chorus is a truly wonderful wake-up call! 

And there's more! We are immediately adjacent to over 300 acres of Forestry Commission - Ostler's Plantation, with its highly popular and much-used woodland rides - ideal for dog-walking. Also neighbouring us is the 185 acre Kirkby Moor Nature Reserve, predominantly of heathland and woodland and a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Oaklea is an ideal location for lovers of nature, walkers and cyclists (Sustrans 'Water Rail Way' and 'Viking Way' nearby), RAF enthusiasts (Battle of Britain Memorial Flight 5 miles) and other 'kindred spirits' (e.g. National Trust - Tattershall Castle 5 miles). The Lincolnshire Wolds 'Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty' is on the doorstep. We have created a comprehensive list of things to do and places to visit on the 'Activities' page of our Website.

We are conveniently situated within easy walking distance of Woodhall Spa, with its excellent amenities (e.g. Kinema-in-the-Woods, heated Lido, famous Golf Course) shops and eateries - visit www.woodhallspa.org.

Booking well ahead of your proposed visit is highly advisable.

Lovely natural CL

A lovely CL in natural surroundings. Spacious pitches and amenities close by. Good walking and cycling tracks in the area. Everything you need available in nearby Woodhall Spa. Very friendly and welcoming owner. Our first time here but won’t be our last. Loved our four night stay here.

Peaceful.

We enjoyed our stay at Oaklea cl.Very quiet at night,just the odd call from the Owls. As others have mentioned the car parking and Elsan point we won't say more about that. We liked the recycling bins,more cl's could do this. The area is just amazing,the colours of the trees at this time of the year were lovely. We made the most of the area,visiting Boston,Horncastle the Bubble Car museum is a must,as is the Aviation Heritage Centre at East Kirby.Go and see the Lancaster running it's engines. We would visit this site again,but not if the pitch price rises anymore.

Tranquility

I Initially booked this site for my daughter for a weekend stay, having seen the site I decided to book 2 more nights after my daughter departed. All credit to the owner who has created a wonderful landscape by planting many different species of trees and careful border landscaping. The site has full recycling facilities and fresh drinking water EHU are convenient situated, a slightly longer walk to empty toilet point, however it’s a chance to enjoy the garden whilst doing so. The site is a great base to cycle the many country lanes around Woodhall Spa. I can recommend this site for a quiet relaxing stay.
