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 has a cosy pub serving real ales and award winning food) 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.

Fiona and Bryan look forward to meeting you soon.

A week in September.

Poplar Farm (Farmitage Holidays)
A very warm welcome on arrival, owners shared knowledge of the area in regards to walking. The pitch we had was brilliant as it had water hook up & grey water point, it is also possible to hook up to other taps so be sure to bring a decent length of hose with the right caravan connection. Bryan was a great help, lending me a set of ladders so I could clean the caravan roof. We were also allowed to have an Amazon order delivered. The only negative point, which Fiona & Bryan have no control over is the road noise, so my suggestion is take some ear plugs. There’s a pub in the village which have a couple of good beers on tap & also a nice selection of single malts. If walking is your thing then you won’t be disappointed. So if you want to have a relaxing site, then I’d recommend Poplar Farm. Thanks Fiona & Bryan, next time we’ll come in our camper van Mabel.

A lovely well run site

Poplar Farm (Farmitage Holidays)
I stayed here for 4 nights in August - access was good, easy coming off the A153. Pitching not too regimented and I was lucky to get a streamside pitch which was a delight. Owners very welcoming and approachable. Good walks in the area, although cattle in the fields behind so dogs must be kept on leads. Facilities were clean and good - the raised grey waste drain did mean I had to lift the wastehog to fully empty. At night it was very quiet although there was early morning local traffic (suprisingly noisier than the nearby main road!). Nice retro phone box style book share here. Nicely placed for Woodhall Spa just a short car journey away. Clearly popular as people return to this CL and I can understand why.

Welcome local break

Poplar Farm (Farmitage Holidays)
Lovely 4 night stay at, for us, a new site, now very happy we've found this one as it's local for us!! Lovely welcome & advice on ease of pitching motorhome, in general owners were very friendly and helpful and chatty. Very spacious pitch. Super walking whether you have a dog or not along river banks ( heed the advice on presence of cattle though!) along to village and all walking is clearly signposted in the area. Only 10 minutes walk down to the Ebrington Arms which does super food...best to prebook though. Only negative for us would be some noisy traffic at certain times of day but we'd still go back!

Owners Couldn’t be more helpful

Poplar Farm (Farmitage Holidays)
Lovely site with pleasant walks along the river & plenty of wildlife in & around. The owners went above & beyond for us , offering to come out & help us set up in torrential rain when we arrived ( we declined!) & then offering to drive us anywhere we needed to go when our car decided to shatter a spring, checking in on us later to make sure we had got sorted with a garage etc - very much appreciated.

Wow

Poplar Farm (Farmitage Holidays)
As CL advocates and fans and currently on site this adult only, dog friendly CL is exactly how a CL should be! Very easy journey over, easy access to site, set in stunning countryside alongside the river with excellent access to local footpaths for dog exercising. The village with dog friendly pub and good food is a short walk from site and the market town of Horncastle with shops/pubs/supermarket a 5 min drive. Owners are welcoming and friendly with an eagerness to share their stunning location with us. The CL has a well manicured flat lawn and rugged private hedging, well spaced pitches some with water and grey facilities to pitch, some with river views, yet no pitch is a bad pitch all south facing. If your bringing your caravan to tour the beautiful county of Lincolnshire, look no further than Poplar Farm. Seriously, it is everything a CL should be and more.
