Some of the guys

General

  • Adults-only glampsite on the scenic Humber estuary
  • Half an hour from Hull for museums, galleries and nights out
  • Within easy reach of Grimsby breweries for tours and tastings

Plenty of soothing greenery, friendly alpacas to meet and no pesky kids scurrying around breaking the peace… yes please. If that sounds like a top getaway for your good and deserving self, break now for a stay at Marshlands Alpacas, an adults-only site less than five minutes’ drive from the Lincolnshire village of New Holland.

A five minute-stroll from New Holland and the banks of the Humber estuary, this is a prime spot to use as a base for Lincolnshire explores, with plenty of peaceful trails nearby to follow. Walk or bike by the river’s edge to soak up views of the wildlife and passing boats, or wander along one of the public footpaths for easy jaunts to the surrounding villages.

For a touch of grandeur, head instead to Normanby Hall and Gardens, half an hour away, to stroll among Victorian outbuildings, spot Bambi and pals in the deer park and tour the grand old pile of bricks at its centre.

If the deer aren't dear to your heart, hang out with the fluffy herd of alpacas at Marshlands instead, or make friends with the resident donkeys. As the evening draws in, there are barbecues and firepits to rent on site to keep toes warm and bodies well fed for more explores, and scenic views across the countryside add a hint of the pastoral to this already peaceful spot. Not sweet enough? Nab a jar of marshlands honey on site as a welcome souvenir.

Large pitches which you can park car next to which …26/10/2020

  • Non-electric grass tent or motorhome pitch

  • Liked: 

    Large pitches which you can park car next to which is helpful for loading/unloading. Pitches are flat and level but a little muddy after heavy rain but seem to dry quickly once the sun comes out.

    There is 1 shower which we never had to wait for and is £1.00 for 7 minutes but we found this is more than enough time and is hot!

    2 toilets with 2 sinks (unisex) and again never had to wait to use.
    Shower and toilets were always clean with plenty of handwash etc.
    Large clean washing up area with plenty of useful information on notice boards.

    Whole site is well maintained and spotlessly clean.

    Highlight was feeding Alpacas!

    Not much to do in the local area but on a sunny day we said we could easily stay on site all day watching the Alpacas and enjoying the peace and quiet.

    The alpacas and the friendly owners.

    Disliked: 

    Lack of hand sanitizer. Dreadful railway line crossing to drive over to reach site.

From the manager...

There is hand sanitiser in the reception, Hand sanitiser is a substitute for soap and water and as we provide both if these in the facilities why would you need hand sanitiser in the toilets?

    Very friendly and welcoming. It was a very windy weekend and the owners made sure we were in the best spot to mitigate this. Feeding the alpacas and sheep was the highlight of my weekend, they are amazing. Toilets were kept very clean and the water was always hot.

    Gary and Julie are fabulous hosts and their animal Family are brilliant. This is the second time that we have stayed and we find it an oasis of calm and loveliness. Watching the sheep and Alpacas, then being able to help feed them is just awesome! Love that it is adult only, Spotless toilet and shower block, very good Covid compliance. This will not be the last time we stay!

Directions

Local attractions

Without any kids in tow, having hols full of grownup-sanctioned adventure is a cinch: head towards Grimsby (half an hour's drive) for tours and tastings at Rutlands Arms Old Mill Brewery and a stop at the taproom of the town’s newest brewery, Docks Beers. Otherwise, venture towards Hull for sedate turns around pleasant gardens, stately manors, museums galore and a must-do stop at The Deep aquarium.

Anyone who’s after something more high-adrenaline and doesn’t mind a slightly longer drive should make the hour and 20-minute journey down the coast to Ingoldmells for a day at Fantasy Island theme park, or continue on to Skeggy for stock car and banger racing at Skegness Raceway.

For days in the great wide open, there’s plenty of choice: the Lincolnshire Wolds are about half an hour away for hiking, biking, riding and geocaching, or a coastal detour to Cleethorpes and its seaside stretch is a top pick for beach and sandcastle days. A trip to Spurn National Nature Reserve shouldn’t be spurned either, even if it’s over an hour away – take a stroll along the sand island for slow-paced explores or sign up for a safari or wildlife-spotting boat trip to see it at its best.

Must see

  • The Deep (2.8 miles)
  • Ferens Art Gallery (3.0 miles)
  • Far Ings National Nature Reserve (4.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Maister House (3.1 miles)
