The Lazy Buzzards: Bell tent exterior

General

  • Spacious, family-run site in the Lincolnshire countryside
  • A 10-minute drive to Skegness; three miles from the Lincolnshire Wolds
  • Short walk away from a dog-friendly pub; barbecues permitted on site

Let Alan, Jo, their two sons and labrador welcome you into the lovely Lincolnshire countryside… the rural location and the splendid views at The Lazy Buzzards might convince you that you’re tucked firmly away in nature’s big backyard, which is true aside from the fact that the seaside resort of Skegness is only 10 minutes’ drive to the east (that’s a 15-minute pedal for those of you who have brought a pair of wheels along).

Families, dogs, couples and any fans of a barbecue will find this family-run site particularly splendid. The nearest dog-friendly pub is only 20 minutes’ walk away and there are many other options for tasty fodder in the pubs and restaurants in the surrounding villages, towns and cities, including Burgh le Marsh (half an hour’s walk), Ingoldmells (10 minutes’ drive), Spilsby (15 minutes), Chapel St Leonards (15 minutes), Alford (20 minutes), Horncastle (25 minutes), Louth (half an hour) and Lincoln (an hour).

With the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds three miles away, pick up the pace with rambles through the valleys, woodlands or chalk pits, and then return to the spacious four-acre site for some thorough relaxation. The views over the Lincolnshire fields make for some spectacular barbecues, that’s for sure.

When it’s time to see Skegness and all of its sights, simply join the A158 nearby. Once there, you might have a hard time deciding on between all the indoor and outdoor attractions, which include the Fantasy Island theme park, bowling alleys, a cinema, fairground, crazy golf and a beach. Perhaps pick up some fish and chips or ice cream and take a parade along the seafront and pier or nose around the shops on the high street too?

  • Liked: 

    Large pitch nice and flat, clean toilets and showers.

    Disliked: 

    No fault of site but local roads very poor compared to all new main roads. The amount of money the councils get from tourism it’s poor that more is not spent on local roads.

  • 3 bedroom rental tent
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site was well presented And the rent a tent was ready and well equipped for our stay. We added the fire pit to our rental as well which was perfect for the evenings. The site was quiet and peaceful and not far from the seaside which was 10 mins drive away.

    The facilities on site were clean and well maintained. Hot water when needed and the availability of fresh water beside the tent was a great addition. Which made filling the kettle easy.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing at all, Great camping experience.
