Scenery, skylarks and Stamford - perfect!

This is a lovely site to discover the pleasing gently rolling landscape in this part of Lincolnshire, and to explore Stamford on foot. It is well named for the "exultation" of skylarks that fills the air. Helen came to warmly welcome us and share helpful local knowledge. The pitches are large and level along the edge of a meadow with a mown track around the perimeter making a reasonable dog walk, with views towards Stamford. The network of footpaths were our reason for spending two nights here and enabled us to explore the pretty villages of Belmesthorpe and Ryhall between showers on our first evening, and to fulfill a long held wish to visit Stamford the next day. Leaflets in the information shed were useful in planning the route. After the bustle of Stamford we followed the course of the disused Welland canal through a nature reserve to Uffington and stopped off at the delightful Bertie Arms, before walking through peaceful country back to Skylark Barn. Apart from a tolerable amount of traffic on Newstead Lane during morning and afternoon rush hours, this was the perfect site to relax and unwind watching red kites while the sun set.
