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.

Beautiful site

Poplar Farm (Farmitage Holidays)
We stayed at Poplar Farm CL site for 5 nights in mid October 2021. The site is so easy to find, just follow the directions given and you can't go wrong. No single track bumpy roads or tight turns to negotiate. They have 7 pitches but only have 5 vans on at any time, this gives you a choice of pitches. We chose pitch 5 which is next to the little allotment type garden. As well as electric hook up it, pitch 5 has its own water supply and a grey water drain. We were given a very warm welcome by Fiona who explained where things were and gave us local info such as nearest shops, walks etc. The site is fairly flat, there is a " telephone box " information and book exchange and the area for the bins etc was kept extremely clean and tidy. TV reception was good. We saw Fiona and Bryan several times during our stay and Fiona even came over to say goodbye when we left. This was a first for us, makes you feel truly welcome. All pitches are a generous size and the site has hedges and a row of tall trees in front of the stream which is also fenced and gated. The stream is a small chalk steam and it can be fished. My husband tried his luck and caught some small chub and brown trout. Very pretty place to sit and just watch the beautiful clear water running by. RAF Coningsby is just a few miles away so aircraft can sometimes be heard, we did go to Coningsby and watched the Typhoon jets taking off and landing. There is a free public car park opposite the end of the runway where you can watch the planes. Coningsby has some small shops and a lovely cake shop!! There were a lot of tractors going past the site while we were there, they started moving while it was still dark, don't know if this happens all year. It didn't bother us but some people might find it a bit noisy. Horncastle is few miles away and we used the tesco store there for our provisions. Woodhall Spa is also close by, lovely little place to walk around, I did want to go to the Teahouse in the Woods for afternoon tea but they were closed for holiday during our stay. We went to Skegness for an afternoon, took us about 40 mins. Plenty of amusements and rides if you like that sort of thing. Really enjoyed our stay at Poplar farm, keep up the good work.

A week in September.

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.
