We really must stay here more often!

We have stayed on this site twice now, and once on its sister site Mealand Hill. I was brought up in the village of Barnetby so the site is ideally situated for visiting my parents and my brother, and ideally for them to drive up and visit us, so we really must make the effort of staying here more often and not expecting my parents to put us up! The site is set atop the Wolds overlooking the runway of Humberside airport - which is set in a dip between the fields. Air traffic is minimal - but during our stay we were treated to 3 Spitfires taking off and landing - so you can't really complain about that. Two of the Spitfires are resident at the airport, the third was the Spitfire flying the rounds of hospitals to give thanks to the NHS . We also saw two take off the next day. The views from the site are stunning and even the oil refineries in the distance don't do anything to obstruct the vista. For cyclists you can join a National Cycle route near the entrance to the sites - but the route over the fields isn't really ideal for road bikes - more for hybrids/mountain bikes. Going in the opposite direction you can cycle to Barnetby crossroads and go right and follow the cycle route to the Humber Bridge (and beyond) via Barton - the roads are pretty quiet - or turn left at the crossroads and cycle through the pretty village of Bigby and up the 10% hill to Somerby Top, from whence you can also get some stunning views - and on a clear day - you can clearly see the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral. There are public footpaths for walkers/ramblers - and indeed the Viking Way is close by - starting in Barnetby and ending up in Caistor. Pam and her husband are very friendly owners and make you feel very welcome. Both sites are immaculate and the grass is kept well mown. Pam was out twice on her drive-on mower when we were staying! All the pitches are serviced with their own water supply which is a bonus too. We can highly recommend this site and we will DEFINITELY be booking again next time we want to meet up with the family or if we just fancy some peace and tranquility in the beautiful Lincolnshire Wolds.
