Nice peaceful site

We stayed for 5 nights and enjoyed the peace and tranquility. The site is secure and secluded and quiet, it’s easy to find and access is good. The arrival is excellent and we enjoyed our stay very much. Two points: the grass was very very long and this would have been an issue had the weather been wet. It was cut while we were there but as it had got so long if needed double cutting and some work to bring it to standard. Secondly, there’s a resident caravanner near the entrance who has a lot of junk outside his van which detracts from the first impressions. Overall a nice site which met our needs and we enjoyed the stay.

We didn't want to leave..

We stayed at Casthorpe House Farm for 2 nights and were absolutely delighted with this CL and the local area. We were given a warm welcome and offered a OS map of the area to borrow for our stay which was very useful. The field is lovely and quiet with mature trees and plenty of birds flying around them and the stone farm buildings. There is a canal with good tow path very close by which was excellent for walking along and we found a lovely canal side pub with an abundance of outside seating where we had a delicious lunch. We would definitely return to this site if in the area; we didn't actually want to move on as we felt there was more to see and we were enjoying the tranquility. Thank you to the Smith family!

lovely site

We had 7 days at this site and after a warm welcome where we lent a ordinance survey map of the area and told of all the local places of interest. The field is well spaced but we had to turn our caravan or would have been looking at a caravan storage area but once turned we had pleasant views of fields and far away hill. The site was clean and we felt secure with the secuity gate. There are many places of interest within a 45min drive and we didn't qiuite see everything during our stay. We would certainly go again as we felt this small part of Lincolnshire offered more than we excpected.

Great site

We booked for 3 nights with friends for last week and ended up staying an extra night. Great location for a lovely site although it was rather muddy underfoot - but hey, it is February! There are 5 well positioned hard standing pitches but not big enough to park a car alongside the caravan, we had a bit of an issue driving off the grass after 3 days standing, but it's that time of year - what can you expect?!. Helen is lovely and very accommodating, providing an extension cable and a local map for the duration of our stay. The site is beautifully clean, and very well located for absolute peace and tranquility - the perfect place to get away from it all. We found lovely off road walks with our dogs, especially over towards Belvoir Castle, passing -and calling in at - some very good pubs. The Dirty Duck provided excellent food and drinks, the butcher in Barrowby is very good too - great ribeye! There is a Coop about 1.5 miles towards Grantham for additional supplies. Thanks Helen, we will be back!

Beautiful and Peaceful Site

Just returned from a lovely weekend at this tranquil and picturesque site set in beautiful countryside. The site is well positioned for cracking walks along the Grantham canal or Viking way truly spoilt for choice. The site has the amenities you require and the owners were polite and helpful making us feel welcome. We would definitely return again. Thank you.

A little gem,

By comparison having used CLS for some years Casthorpe is a real find which started with a prompt response to our enquiry re availability to the warmest greeting on arrival with a wealth of information on the local area . Easy to find with clear directions and signs. Security gates into the paddock which was reassuring. We look forward to visiting again soon.

Always A Warm Welcome

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.

Great site. Very helpfull owner.

This is our first visit to this site on our month long tour of England from 16th December 2016 to 16th January 2017. The site is only 3 mile from the Main A1 & about 4 mile from Grantham town centre. From the moment we arrived we found Helen the owner more than helpful. Even when my wife had a health problem which meant she needed to see a doctor Helen gave us details of a doctors surgery in the area which helped my wife. We can not praise Helen enough. We would recommend this site highly and would return in the future.

Welcoming first visit

Although we didn't meet Helen she was very helpful and welcoming on the phone when I booked and everything was self explanatory when we arrived. A lovely peaceful place with information about the surroundings displayed. A thoughtful addition was an OS map which allowed us to walk out from the site and explore our surroundings. If you only stay on a CL for a couple of nights (and we did - circumstances didn't allow any longer)) it is expensive to buy your own map and I hate being without one! We loved this extra touch. We would definitely stay again.

A lovely CL

Based on a first visit - sadly only one wet afternoon and night - I can't help but agree with all the good reviews. It is a lovely spot and we were captivated by the large numbers of swallows flying around the field. I must especially mention the extremely helpful and considerate welcome we received from Helen, where she had reserved a flat pitch for us and showed us everything, despite pouring rain when we arrived. We were also lent an electric cable because I was concerned about using mine from the pitch we used. Generally we could not have been made to feel more welcome. It is a great site for running and road cycling. (I didn't fancy a swim in the rather green canal water.) There are numerous options for offroad running, including along the canal which is close by, although I had to be cautious of the male swam guarding his cygnets on the towpath. From taking part in events in previous years close by I also know there are lovely quiet lanes for road cycling and running. (I don't understand the previous reviewer's comment "the noise from the traffic was terrible". I doubt there is a quieter lane anywhere - I ran along its full length and didn't see one single vehicle.) All in all I thoroughly recommend this CL.
