Waggon and Horses: Space for tourers and campervans

General

  • Traditional Lincolnshire country pub between Louth and Mablethorpe
  • A 15-minute drive from Louth and half an hour from Skegness
  • Home-cooked food and a cosy fireplace for winter nights

Looking for a peaceful site beside an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty? Hitch a ride any way you can to Waggon and Horses, in the rural village of South Reston and between Louth and Mablethorpe. It's 15-minute drive from here to the coastal resorts of Trusthorpe and Sutton-on-Sea, and the Lincolnshire Wolds are within easy reach.

Guests have been welcomed to this splendid countryside inn for over 130 years: these days it's a friendly spot with top facilities, where you can tuck into home-cooked food or a Sunday carvery in the restaurant, have a bar snack or regular special, and join in with the traditional pub games and events regularly held on site… all the while working your way through the menu of guest beers and real ales…

Between the seaside and the Wolds, this is a top base for either a weekend break or a longer visit, with loads of activities on offer from leisurely country and coast walks to cycling, golf, nature spotting and seaside amusements. A bus service stops at the site entrance for runs to Louth, Mablethorpe and Skegness.

The site has a play area, and barbecues are allowed if you'd rather dinner was DIY. The refurbished toilets and shower are another big plus, and fresh drinking water is available from a tap outside the nearby village pub.

    Poorly maintained. Litter. Damaged electric hook up points. Only two toilets and one shower which were closed due to COVID. Never saw owners cleaning or sanatizing anywhere. Guard dogs next door to site barking ferociously whenever they were approached including at feeding time which was around 8am every morning. No WiFi.

Directions

Local attractions

Get out into the Lincolnshire Wolds or browse the nearby market towns for inland adventuring: Louth, 15 minutes' drive away, has an acclaimed market for the procurement of local produce, as well as waterside strolls from town all the way to Tetney Lock. Golf is available at Kenwick Park and Woodthorpe, both within 10 minutes of the site.

Towards the coast, make for Mablethorpe (15 minutes), for the Mablethorpe Seal Sanctuary, the miniature railway, boating lake and small funfair… and perhaps you may care to follow in the poetic footsteps of Mr Tennyson and shout your verses out to the Mablethorpe sea…? No? Take the little sand train instead for a lyrically handsome journey to the north end of Mablethorpe's beach.

The beach and pier of Skegness (30 minutes) have been a famed spot for British hols for generations; it's not for nothing that the town was the site of the first Butlin’s (and was once voted the best retirement spot in all the land)… There's loads to do here alongside the beach and pier, including a seal sanctuary (with tarantulas and penguins), the National Parrot Sanctuary, and the spectacular Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve.

Sutton-on-Sea and Ingoldmells are within easy reach too: you should of course sample (more) fish and chips at each.

Must see

  • Lincoln Cathedral (27.6 miles)
  • Lincoln Medieval Bishops' Palace (27.6 miles)
