Doddington Oaks CL

Our first visit to this lovely site but it won't be out last. On our first day walking the dogs in the shady woodland feet from the site, we saw both a munjac and a roe deer. Buzzards were nesting in one of the large oak trees and we saw and heard a cuckoo (something we haven't heard for quite a while). Glyn was very welcoming and even helped us get our awning put up as we had been struggling. Being tall is a distinct advantage. Our dogs loved the site and the freedom of the woods. We were also very lucky to spot the lesser-spotted painter and she settled happily on one of our chairs. Gillian does wonderful paintings and the next time we visit will definitely see her gallery. She is very welcoming and even dashed back from her dental appointment to make sure she said goodbye to us. The weather was great which is always a plus when caravanning, but even though it rained heavily a couple of nights the ground was still dry and not water logged. We were a bit concerned about the proximity to the road and traffic noise but although the road was busy the noise tended to blur into just a background noise and the many birds around the site were more than adequate to create a lovely musical accompaniment. I was tempted to give a bad review because sites like this are rare and will get booked up very quickly and we want to be able to get a pitch next time we book - only joking Gill and Glyn. Loved everything about the site and can't wait to visit again.
It’s very easy to find fault in most things in life, but in the case of this CL, it’s virtually impossible. The location is ideally situated not far from the A46 and therefore easy to reach from any direction. As mentioned by other members, the area of full of interesting sites to see and things to do, most of which are mentioned by the hosts, Gill and Glynn in their own description of their site. The site is flat and Glynn has laid out the pitches for easy access and the maximum privacy possible. The chemical toilet disposal point is one of the best I’ve come across in 36 years of using CLs, it’s purpose built and almost a pleasure to use! There is slight traffic noise, but nothing to spoil the stay. I could go on but I don’t think I could add anything to the previously well written reviews, just ring up and book a stay, I don’t think you’d be disappointed.
This site is level, clean and the pitches generous, dog walks through the nearby woods and relatively peaceful. It is an ideal base for exploring the many attractions Lincoln has to offer, Whisby lakes are also nearby for Bird watchers and nature lovers alike, you can also explore further afield to the coast or the Lincolnshire Wolds, Also not far from RAF Scampton and RAF Waddington which both have public viewing areas for aircraft enthusiasts. It is situated close to the A46 so has good transport links and has nearby Pubs and restaurants. The owners Gillian and Glynn are fabulous very approachable and helpful with advice on local eateries and places to visit. A cracking little site
Stayed here for 3 nights, could have stayed longer. Owners really friendly and helpful. Lovely views of fields and woods where you can walk your 4 legged friend! Lots of places to visit within a few miles and nice places to eat including chip shop at the Moorland centre just along the road. Can highly recommend this well thought out spacious site.
This CL is so new it isn't even in the book yet. I found it quite by chance on the website, and am glad I did. We were looking for somewhere to stay near Lincoln, so we could visit Lincoln and RAF Scampton and RAF Coningsby, and explore the Wildlife Reserve at nearby Whisby. Doddington Oaks is minimum-facility, (electric hook-up, water and waste disposal), which is what we wanted; the ground is well-drained, well-managed and perfectly level, lovely well-spaced pitches with an open outlook across fields, and a nice view. The site-owners made us very welcome, and gave us good information about the locality. There was slight road-noise from the nearby B-road during the day, but did not disturb at night; access to the main road into Lincoln was excellent, and the surrounding roads are good. We had a lovely week there, and will stay at Doddington Oaks again.
Lovely site. Spotlessly clean. Very peaceful. Pitches are very generous in size. All are side by side offering a great deal of privacy. Owners very helpful and friendly. Very flat so no levelling. Woodland walk attached to site. Would definitely recommend.
