Had a great time, ideal for motorbike tourers, it’s quiet and idyllic, owners very helpful :)

General

  • Peaceful adults-only site on a small working farm in Lincolnshire
  • Walker’s paradise: loads of quiet country lanes and bridle paths
  • Half an hour’s drive from the city of Lincoln

Need an escape from that fast-paced modern life? Get back to nature at Dean House Campsite, a stripped back adults-only site at the rear of a small farm half an hour's drive from the city of Lincoln.

A top spot for exploring Lincolnshire at a slow pace, there are loads of quiet country lanes and bridle paths in the area around Dean House. You can also follow a nearby bridle path directly into Chambers Farm Wood – part of the Lincolnshire Limewoods and a haven for budding stargazers – to explore the waymarked trails or the night sky.
If you prefer to explore in the saddle, the scenic village of Woodhall Spa is 35 minutes’ cycle from Dean House and the towns of Wragby and Horncastle are both half an hour away.

Back on site, unwind further by soaking up the peaceful, quiet atmosphere, looking out over the fields. When your stomach starts protesting, get a barbecue going – you can pick up supplies from one of the supermarkets within 10 minutes’ drive – then chow down with your feet warming by the campfire. Fancy a break from cooking? There are tons of restaurants within 20 minutes’ drive of Dean House.

    Quiet peaceful site with open views of the sky. Sue greeted us on arrival, opened the gate and showed us to the camping field. As it was mid week we were the only campers that night. The facilaties were very clean with a good supply of hot water.
    This is a site that will suit those who want a traditional camping pitch.

    Nothing at all

    Disliked: 

    Decided to try this campsite with my girlfriend for date night. Turned up on site at the time that we told them (8:30pm) and there was no sign of anybody at reception, called the site 14 times in the space of half an hour stood outside the site and nobody answered, tried knocking and could hear the phone ringing from outside. In the end we weren’t able to pitch up the campsite and had to return home, we spent 3 hours total getting there and back and had booked a day off work for it. On calling the site again on the way home we were greeting by a highly intoxicated male on the phone telling us it was our fault that we didn’t have internet (why that was relevant I don’t know because we called the landline and heard it ringing from outside) and we got hung up on. Absolutely appalling service.

    Friendly campsite owner, able to have fire pits (Sue the owner let us borrow theirs) rural setting and lots of space around pitch. Local pub did good food. Shower with hot water and charge points for phones. Perfect to have a weekend to get away from the city and spend time with friends.

Local attractions

There’s nothing more sedate than a trip to one of England’s stately homes, where you can easily imagine a life of utter leisure – Doddington Hall, Tattershall Castle, Belton House and Grantham House are all within an hour’s drive of Dean House, and you can take a stroll around the spectacular Petwood Gardens, 15 minutes away, to be at one with nature.

The city of Lincoln is 30 minutes from the site, and a must-visit for oodles of history. If you only have a limited amount of time, make your way to the stunning Lincoln Cathedral, follow the Roman Trail or visit the Medieval Bishop’s Palace – and don’t forget to explore the vineyard in the palace gardens. If that’s only whet your appetite, there’s plenty more to keep you busy too, from museums and galleries to shops and restaurants.

Aviation and motoring buffs can get their fill of planes, trains and automobiles with stops at Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Centre, the Bubblecar Museum, Lincolnshire Aviation and Lincolnshire Wolds Railway, all within half an hour of Deans House.

Stressing about going back to work? Finish off your holiday with a trip to the Workhouse in Southwell, an hour away, where suddenly you won’t feel so bad about returning to your annoying colleagues, small cubicle and crammed inbox…
