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.

    The cabin was very good, well decorated and clean as were the other amenities . The owners are very friendly. The only problem I’ve got now is trying to get the other half to stop wanting alpacas after she was allowed to feed them. Definitely will be back next year some time with the tent.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing. Shame it’s adults only.Would have loved to take the grand daughter here .

    The alpacas are amazing!

    It's a small site with facilities that suit that size. Magnificent views of the Humber estuary.

    Would suit those looking for a quiet retreat.

    Everything- the owners Julie and Gary are lovely, friendly and helpful, the Alpacas 🦙 make this a site with a difference and are great to see and learn about. The site is peaceful, relaxing and spotlessly clean.

    There are some nice little towns/villages well worth a visit nearby as well as the Humber Bridge viewing areas on either side of the river with some nice walks for the dog. This is our second visit and we will be back.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing about the site which was fantastic but New Holland itself is somewhat lacking in facilities. The Chinese takeaway is good but the village would really benefit from a cafe (that is open) and a shop for basic provisions.

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)
