This is a real gem of a site, quiet, secure, close to a small selection of local shops and Take-Away, good walking and cycling all around including along the Grantham canal to two excellent Pubs in Woolsthorpe-by-Belvoir. A combination of hard standing pitches and grassed area ensure you can select a pitch to suit your preference. I found one of the pitches to be slightly unlevel but this doesn't cause too many problems if it's the last one available.
Living locally I have used this site on numerous occasions to test out the renovations on my 1967 Cheltenham Springbok. My first visit set the tone for a very friendly sequence of visits. I had just collected a rather dilapidated looking vintage van - algae green with black streaks and a broken front window. Helen took it all in her stride and once I had convinced her I wasn't a new age traveller we enjoyed many a chat about the (very slow) progress I was making on the renovation project with each visit. Sadly, the site is so conducive to peaceful reading, dog walking or just watching the world hardly go by not much renovating work got done while I was on site!
Access to the site is via an electronic five bar gate with your own access code giving a secure feel to the field. In the unlikely event of problems the house is adjacent to the field. Power is supplied from one distribution board but don't worry if your lead isn't long enough, extensions are supplied.
Ill health has meant that my visits have been curtailed for quite a while now and my Cheltenham has moved on to new owners. I will get myself a new unit (well newer than 1967) in time and I can say with almost certainty my first test run will be to Casthorpe House Farm. A highly recommended site, give it a try, but book in advance during peak season and popular holiday periods.
