General

  • Countryside pub with open views of the Lincolnshire Wolds
  • Walkers' paradise with easy access to trails including the Viking Way
  • Friendly vibe with pub food, board games and walking maps

If you're an intrepid wanderer, the knowledgeable team at The Three Horseshoes near Louth in Lincolnshire reckons a foray onto the Viking Way is a must. How lucky, then, that this fab and historic path along the route of the Norse invaders of yesteryear can be accessed a short drive from the pub – one of many paths in the region for you to tramp.

If you're not quite up for traversing the full length of the Way from a Three Horseshoes stay (it runs for 147 miles from the Humber Bridge in north Lincs to Oakham in Rutland), several more strolling and hiking paths are around this Lincolnshire Wolds locale to try instead.

There's the stunning setting of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Beauty, or you could wander the Silver Lincs Way to Grimsby from nearby Louth, or tackle the Macmillan Way, Lindsey Way and the tastily-named Gingerbread Way, just to start you off. Not into walkies? Trot along to days out at Cadwell Park or Market Rasen Racecourse, both within easy reach.

The site promotes a relaxed atmosphere where guests are welcome to have a campfire by their pitch and chill out among the handsome views. (Firepits, wood and kindling are available to buy, so please don't bring your own.)

A friendly atmosphere also prevails in the pub, where you can tuck into good food and real ales, or settle in with the table and board games on a rainy day; plenty of walking leaflets and maps are here too for planning your next route.

The team ensures its amenities are modern and well maintained; the shower and toilet block has been refitted and updated.

    Beautiful spot, including the Viking Way.
    Very nice area with some great villages.
    The Three Horseshoes is a really nice pub. Great beer selection and nice food.

    Disliked: 

    The site is very well maintained and shows that they care, but it has the potential to become waterlogged. About a third of the site wasn't usable due to being too wet.
    The road outside the site/pub looked like a ford the water was so deep.
    The toilets / shower rooms were quite cold, but the showers themselves were good and there was plenty of hot water

  • Electric optional grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    - Large pitch
    - Quiet, secluded site

    Disliked: 

    - Only 2 toilets & 2 showers per gender. I’m very glad the site was virtually empty during my stay!
    - No network signal & WiFi only available in or very close to pub. Adding a WiFi repeater to allow connection from the campsite would be a cheap and effective solution
    - I was told I couldn’t listen to the radio quietly at my tent because they have no ‘licence for amplified music’. Never heard of this having stayed at dozens of campsites! Even more annoying was that on my first night 5 lads in the tent opposite were making so much noise I couldn’t even hear my radio. Perhaps they were too intimidating for the staff to approach!

  • Milly Micro camping pod
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The campsite is gorgeous! Clearly well-kept and cared for. All the staff there are friendly and helpful, it was very easy to check in/out. They even left some folding chairs for us to use. We stayed in the millie pod, so the smallest one. It was enough size for two of us. The lights around the pod were really pretty too.

    Disliked: 

    No dislikes, just suggestions! On the millie pod during the day, it was hard to open the doors as there is no handle, having one would make it easier. It would also have been nice to be told about how we could have a fire - the website says you have fires but its not clear where we get wood from. Again, really nice stay though so these weren't an issue.
