Forest View Camping

8.7

This site does not currently take bookings here on Pitchup.com.

General

  • Simple pitches at a Lincolnshire family farm near Wragby
  • A 10-minute walk from a nature reserve and swimming/watersports lake
  • Woodland views; 15 minutes' drive from the Lincolnshire Wolds

A little walk in the Lincolnshire Wolds, followed by a cool open-water swim or a bit of paddleboarding? If that sounds like a pretty fine way to spend a day, plot a course to Forest View Camping, in the Lincolnshire countryside five minutes' drive from Wragby and 20 minutes from Market Rasen.

The views and vibe here are mighty peaceful, as the site looks out over farm land and the next-door woodland (part of the Bardney Limewoods National Nature Reserve). The surrounding area, though, is packed with things to do: for starters, a 10-minute walk will get you to Chambers Farm Woods for woodland walks, picnic spots and a butterfly garden, or to Ocean Walker Academy, an open-water swimming centre where you can go kayaking or paddleboarding if you don’t fancy a swim (it's by appointment only though, so make sure you book ahead…).

Other days out? Well, it’ll take you about 15 minutes in the car to get to the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for a stroll or to meet the residents of the Wolds Wildlife Park. The centre of Lincoln is about 25 minutes away for city wanders, and Skegness 45 minutes for a bit of beach time.

Back at base it’s a fairly simple setup that’s been designed to integrate well with its setting on a family-run working farm. Pitches are flat and well maintained, and have access to toilet and shower facilities.

    Good location. Peaceful and plenty of space for the children to play. Very welcoming hosts and very helpful when needed.

    Disliked: 

    The second night we stayed we could have done with a bit more lighting towards the toilet area, even with a torch it was still quite dark.

From the manager...

So glad you enjoyed the fire pit that you hired from us! So pleased you had a great time with us!
The lack of light at the toilets is noted - next year we do plan to invest in more lighting! Thank you for your feedback though, it is appreciated

    It was a lovely place to go for a long weekend away with the family and quiet

    Disliked: 

    Would off been better if there was a play area for the kids gone on. Plus it siad about the water lake was free to go to we find out you had to pay so we were not happy

From the manager...

Thank you for your positive review we are so pleased we managed to create the perfect environment for you family.
We are a small pop up site and unfortunately there was only so much we realistic justify investing in. However, we do take your comments onboard and perhaps next year we can have some child based activities/play areas.
The local lake is a separate business to ours and our pitch up site description does indicate that you must book in advance online but does not say that it is free. All prices for the Ocean Walker Academy are on their own website which is referenced on our page. Hope this helps.

    Large fields, plenty of space for large groups and/or kids to play

    Disliked: 

    No welcome and no instructions on arrival, had to ask another camper. Insufficient facilities for the size of the campsite. Quite loud at night.

From the manager...

We can only apologise for the lack of welcome on your arrival - we do always look out for new arrivals and greet them when we can. However, as we are a working farm, it is very difficult to guarantee that a welcome will occur immediately during summer/harvest season. Our contact details are on Pitch Up and it does say that it is contactless check in. We would have happily given instructions over the phone as we have for several campers this year.
Our site has become far more popular than we imagined , and at times this has meant that the facilities have been busier than we would like. We do plan to have more units added now that we know how much people love our little site!! Hopefully we will see you again so we can show you around!

    A true feeling of camping, freedom to enjoy yourself. Quiet and peaceful, shower was nice and hot and facilities were cleaned regularly

    Disliked: 

    There’s two fields one was better grass than the other we hadn’t noticed, we pitched up in the farmed field rather than the side field so it was a little rougher and the odd patch of manure laid around.

From the manager...

Thank you for your positive review! We are so glad we took you back to “real” camping and that our facilities impressed you.
The weekend that you booked was exceptionally busy and we quickly realised that we needed to expand the camp area to give people plenty of space. We did have to prepare the field quickly and so although we cleared it as thoroughly as possible, we can only apologise for the (odd) dry “yesterday’s grass!”
Next year we plan to prepare larger, greener areas that are camp ready! Hopefully we will see you then !

    Very very peaceful site (until we arrived with our 3 children) . lots of space for children to play . Easy to find . Very friendly owners always cleaning and emptying bins . Lovely walks through the woods just down the road. Close to Wragby for takeaway or shops . Very nice and clean shower and toilets . Very spacious and level pitches .

    Disliked: 

    Be prepared for the wasps but nothing that the site can do about that it is the countryside after all

From the manager...

Thank your for your glowing review!
Wasps were a bit of a pain this year but as you say very little we can do! We have been told about a product on Amazon called “the waspinator” which for £10 will deter wasps from entering your pitch area!! Might be worth a try another time!!

    Very nice and peaceful place to relax away from all technology. Our 2 daughters enjoyed playing tennis, watching the local wildlife and farm animals. Good facilities available and the owner is very friendly. Lots of things to do locally too or in the local village some nice pub food available. Will definitely go again.

    Queue for toilets at busy times, no power to shower when I tried to use it

From the manager...

Thank you for your positive review and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us! We do accept that at our busiest times our facilities were put to the test! But they passed - just! Next year we do plan to add more due to the popularity of our humble campsite!
We are some what confused about the shower not working for you. We haven’t had any other complaints and do test the shower daily with no issues??? We can only assume it had either been isolated by another camper or the cleaners by mistake. We are sorry if this spoilt your stay - hopefully you forgive us and we can welcome you next year!
