This campsite has a good old-fashioned feel. It’s in a peaceful, rural spot, with 20 pitches, including five in a secluded adult-only area, a couple of log cabins hidden among a grove of Christmas trees and several glamping options. There are two adjoining flat fields, surrounded by hedges, with plenty of space for games and family fun, a couple of swings and an animal area with rabbits and guinea pigs for the kids.
Situated in their own enclosure at the bottom of the second camping field are two fully-equipped, comfy bell tents with real beds, duvets and pillows (bring your own bedding if you are here three nights or less). There’s also a fully-equipped and excellently insulated glamping pod among the trees, with a private kitchen and toilet facilities and a hammock where you can lay back and enjoy the birdsong. A gypsy caravan finishes off the campsite’s glamping offering, across a little wooden bridge and with a wide, grassy space around it.
Site-owners Rosemary and Robert keep the place ship-shape and maintain its air of tranquility by enforcing the no-noise-after 10.30pm rule. Rosemary also welcomes the log cabin dwellers with small food hampers of locally sourced produce, and Robert is an avid recycler. Please make him happy by putting aluminium, glass, plastic and paper in the right containers!
2 toilet and shower blocks, with 2 showers each and washing-up sinks (showers 20p). Disabled and baby changing facilities, and laundry room with a washing machine and dryer.
Tents, campervans, caravans, groups (except same-sex), dogs – yes.
It's a very easy 12 mile drive into Lincoln, home to several medieval marvels. Tucked away behind a stone wall metres from the cathedral (01522 561600) are the bruised ruins of what was in its day the most magnificent building in Lincoln, the former Bishop’s Palace (01522 527468), while the the main facade of the Cathedral itself is a stunning example of medieval Gothic architecture. Lincoln Castle (01522 782040), meanwhile, is distinguished by its circle of medieval walls and turrets dating back to the twelfth century. From the east, the castle is entered through an imposing gateway and beyond, dotted around a long and grassy courtyard, are law courts, a new heritage skills centre and two former Victorian prisons.
Food & DrinkA traditional, old world pub Bottle & Glass is a 5 minute ride by car from the campsite (01673 862231) and prides itself on real Lincoln ale. The Inn on the Green at Ingham (01522 730354) is easily the best place to eat nearby.
All year – although the bell tents and the gypsy caravan are not available in winter.
When you've finished exploring the historic town of Lincoln, retreating through the backroads to this quiet campsite is quite a treat. By day there's acres of space, trees, nooks and crannies to explore, while by night it's a silent, sleepy escape.
The Owner Says
Head north for 12 miles on the A15 from Lincoln. Take a right (Cliff Road) into the village of Spridlington and a left on to Owmby Road. The campsite is on the left.
Lincolnshire Council’s CallConnect buses will run to the site if booked in advance (Mon–Sat). The Lincoln park & ride is also only a 5-minuite drive away.
