Why stay here ...

Poplar Farm CL is located on the banks of a beautiful chalk stream - the River Bain. It's a half acre, south facing site which offers 5 level grass pitches, all with 10amp electric hook ups and very close proximity to fresh drinking water.

There is ample room for awnings, and extra cars if needed - at no extra cost. Well behaved dogs are also welcome, again at no extra cost.

Our location is perfect for visiting the local area. The site is just a few minutes' drive from the A153. The A153 is the main road that leads to the historic market town of Horncastle "Antiques capital of the UK" or head south to Coningsby, the home of the Battle of Britain memorial flight, - maybe visit Tattershall Castle, a 15th century red brick castle with superb views across the Lincolnshire landscape. Both Horncastle and Coningsby are just 10 minutes away by car.

If you prefer to walk or cycle, you are well catered for here. There are a number of footpaths leading directly from the site along the river, either into the village of Kirkby on Bain (which just happens to have the best pub in Lincolnshire!) a 10 minute walk, or head North to Haltham lock then Roughton village - Making an ideal circular walk of approximately 3 miles.

Why not Cycle the beautiful lanes to the inland resort of Woodhall Spa (3.5 miles) for a coffee, or to sample something delicious from one of the many cafes/restaurants. Maybe stop and visit one of the many nature reserves in the area and catch a glimpse of a Fox, Muntjac deer or even a White Admiral Butterfly.

Perhaps you're just happy to stay on site; fish for Chub or Trout, or sit and relax and listen for the Kingfishers flying by.

Whatever you like to do on holiday, I'm sure Poplar farm CL and the surrounding area will deliver.

Jade and Hannah look forward to meeting you soon.

April 2019 Relaxing 4 day’s

This CL at Poplar Farm is a great place to unwind,this is our third stay here, we like it here because there are public footpaths directly from the site in all directions and good for dog walking. Water taps and electric hookup points are conveniently placed and well spaced pitches. Recycling and waste points are discreetly screened off . Woodhall Spa is only a few minutes drive down the road with its famous Kinema in the Woods , a vintage cinema with tremendous character and Tea Rooms near by. The public house in the village is only a few minutes walk, Ebrington Arms has a good selection of craft beers and the food is very good too. Advice is to book a table at weekends as not to disappoint. Very friendly owners and always welcoming, thanks once again.

3 day stay

Stayed here on our way back home from Norfolk, owner very likeable and obliging. The site is well mapped out and enclosed. Jets from RAF Conningsby fly over occasionally but personally I enjoy watching them. If you walk out a gate at the back of the site you can walk either way along the river bank, and one way is a small walk to the local pub the Ebbrington Arms, very nice! would recommend booking in for food. Woodhall Spa is nearby with it's local amenities Jubilee Park with heated swimming pool and the unique Kinema in the woods if you fancy a film. New to us was a Italian restraunt on the main street reasonably priced and nice food. Alternatively there is the town of Horncastle not far away which has a market day, I believe is Saturday. Enjoyed our stay very much and will return.

Semi-previous gem

Located on a corner close to a hump backed bridge used by large HGVs & by a small river this site can be noisy by day but not by night. Otherwise this CL is very nearly faultless & other CL owners should copy Jade's efforts to make a waste area & recycling exemplary hygeinic & well signed. However what makes this CL special is the commitment by Jade ( man) to his customers by way of a welcome care & comfort. Not the best location but definitely a wonderfully comfortable caring CL. 5* to the Chappells & continuing good fortune.

Great little site

Stayed on this site a couple of times. J is very welcoming. The site is flat and the services are good and well kept. The adjacent road can be a little busy for a minor road during the day but the traffic disappears in early evening leaving it very very quiet. Close by paths lead to pleasant riverside walks (to the pub if you must) and further afield. The first time we stopped there the rain had been awful up to when we got there but the site was solid. It drains well as it is adjacent to the river. Beno
