Sunflower Park: Grass pitches

General

  • Remote and rural site in the Lincolnshire countryside
  • Home to many rescue animals including hens, pigs, geese and ducks
  • Well-stocked fishing lake

What a lush site this is for gainful countryside holidays in the Lincolnshire countryside, whiling days away fishing, woodland walking and just lazing by the lakeside with open book or one's very own thoughts.

There are animals too… Small and family-run Sunflower Park near Gainsborough has taken in quite a few rescue animals in their time (they're a friendly and welcoming lot here), so on site you'll meet the three family pets as well as some alpacas, several ex-battery hens and their strutting cockerel. Also adopted are a family of geese, ducks, Kunekune pigs and a couple of Gloucester old spots: do make sure to say hi to all.

As you might guess, this is a relaxed and amiable site, set remotely and rurally on a five-acre plot that includes paddocks, a playground, open pastureland, a private woodland walk and a well-stocked fishing lake exclusively for guests' use.

You might reckon the park's remote rural setting makes it a wildlife haven too, and you'd reckon right: its boundaries run directly into Laughton Forest's Tuetoes Wood, a Forestry Commission nature haven for walking and cycling among the trees, and home to wildlife like deer, foxes, owls, rabbits, jays, pheasants, cuckoos, woodpeckers – all within viewable and hearing distance from your pitch.

Sunflower Park has toilets, showers, a drying room, a launderette and ice pack freezing. Firepits are available for hire for the whole of guests' stays and arrive full and ready to light.

Please note

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

    Everything - from the owners to the staff taking care of the animals. My partner and I loved feeding the animals. The dogs are absolutely gorgeous and so friendly, watch out for Evie, she's an attention seeker haha.
    We spent 3 nights and 4 days there. Everyone thought we were mad for going in the winter in a TENT! but it was so peaceful and couldn't of asked for a better campsite for time away.

    We will definatly be back.

    There's a cute little shop that has alot more than we thought.

    There's a breakfast bar if you forgot to pack or can't be bothered cooking on a morning. Shower/toilet block is great and lovely and clean. Theres a wash room with a freezer, washing machine and a sink.

    There's an enclosure for your dogs to run around in.

    Play area with trampolines for the kiddies.

    Absolute gorgeous little camp site that we cannot wait to go back to.

    Absolutely everything, the animals are so beautiful and love to be stroked, they are so friendly, sunflower is set in the middle of a woodland setting, there are some lovely walks, the cooked breakfasts which josie makes are absolutely delicious, all members of staff are helpful and friendly. There's a small shop on site which sells some beautiful handmade souvenirs, a shop selling general food and alcohol and a small tackle shop if you fancy fishing in the pond. You get plenty of space to set up your caravan and awning. The toilets are warm and clean as are the showers. We really love it here. There's also a park with trampolines which my son thinks is great.

    Lovely quiet site with farm setting, good sized pitches, lovely communal area. Owners very friendly, great dogs area .

    Disliked: 

    Although I love the "lights out" feeling, when i wanted to use the facilities it was pitch black right up to them. I few low wattage lights would be really useful just to navigate around .

From the manager...

Thank you for a fab review.
Since being open we have explored and tried to provide this lighting but you would not believe how many have been broken, smashed, filled with stores, hit my bats/racers, driven into etc....
We finally conceded after this summer and done away with them reluctantly.
We tried ground mounted, post mounted, fence mounted etc etc.
We ask you guys now to rely on the sensor lights that laminate the area upon approach but it isn't for the want of trying.🌻

    On arrival had already been messaged with our pitch location which was level and EHU was only 3-5feet away, we immediately set off to walk around the site with our bags of carrots to feed some of the animals. Overnight was surprisingly quiet with the Owl in the woods making itself heard. Great facilities throughout including hot showers and clean toilets all covid safe. A young female member of staff on both days was very welcoming and full of knowledge in reference to my many questions regarding the animals, we both would of loved to have stayed even longer and look forward to returning again asap. Great welfare for all the animals a true credit to the owners and all who are involved there 100%

Local attractions

Walkers, hikers, cyclists, energetic runners and nature spotters have Tuetoes Wood right beside Sunflower Park, the Forestry Commission-managed and publicly accessible part of vast Laughton Forest.

If you're an avid animal fan, take time to get to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park just outside Doncaster, home to a menagerie of over 300 from around the world, and to The Deep at Hull, one of the biggest aquariums in the UK and a habitat for over 3000 marine critters.

Going south, history buffs can get to Lincoln for eleventh century Lincoln Cathedral, the third biggest in Britain after St Paul's in London and York Minster. Lincoln Castle is also well worth a look, to gaze geekily upon one of the four original remaining copies of the Magna Carta.
