The Skipworth Arms: Pitches in the first field (near the pub)

General

  • Family-run pub site near Market Rasen
  • Classic bike nights, biking weekends and free fishing
  • In a rural setting minutes from the Lincolnshire Wolds

You might wish this campsite was right next door to your office. For verily it includes a generous dollop of many people's very favourite things: it has ‘Arms’ in the name for a start, and thus is clearly attached to a pub.

It’s tucked into the countryside but is only a couple of miles from the motorway and three miles from the nearest big town. It holds classic bike nights in the summer, biking weekends throughout the year courtesy of the Vulcan Riders Association and music festivals and events very close by. It has a free and properly stocked three-quarters of an acre fishing lake right on site. And it’s dog-friendly – cheers…

Near Market Rasen in Lincolnshire, The Skipworth Arms is a family-run pub, caravan and camping park in a five-acre rural setting, minutes from the Lincolnshire Wolds and within 20-25 minutes’ drive of the seaside at Cleethorpes and the castle and cathedral of Lincoln.

Pitches are behind the pub, which is a lively community bar with free weekend entertainment and the main sporting events shown on BT and Sky. And the pub serves real ale, beer and lager at good prices: you might like a pub like this right next door to your office too please…

Caistor, three miles away, has all the usual tasty takeaway suspects (such as Indian, Italian, Chinese or fish and chips), plus restaurants, pubs and local Lincolnshire meals in the Heritage Centre on Plough Hill. Lots of tasty food and drinks on hand? That’s one of most people's very favourite things too.

    Everything, quite location other than the trains but we enjoyed them as did our little boy who was fascinated by how close by they were, really pleasant owner who couldn't do enough, our pup and son was welcome in the pub with our son getting treats from the lady behind the bar, we've booked to come back for my partners birthday in Feb as we loved it so much

    Disliked: 

    I wouldn't say it's a dislike as it could happen anywhere but my partner slipped on the decking leaving the shower room ( it was cold, wet and she will tell you herself her shoes didn't have any grip) and certain facilities not being sign posted but again (quick ask and directed straight to them)

From the manager...

Thank you for the lovely review! We really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

    It was lovely and the people very friendly.
    Although the toilet/ showers were very clean the heating and the lights for the shower area wasn't working as I think they may have had a leak so may have isolated the electrics for safety, understandable due to the time of year, hopefully sorted by the time we go back later in the year. As they were renovating the restaurant whilst we were there. Looking forward to seeing and trying it out when finished.

    The loud train wake up through the night. No warning of that.

    Disliked: 

    The power going off in the night waking up in a cold van. With a warming fridge. £5 deposit for a electric card. Left too early to get that back. It used £5 credit in a few hours while we were in the pub. Just add the few quid a night on and include electric crazy having to get and pay for a electric card for a one night stay. £10 for one night !!

Directions


The campsite is located in the small hamlet of Moortown just off the A46 (Lincoln to Grimsby).

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

The Skipworth Arms is on the edge of the hamlet of Moortown near Nettleton village, which is a mere couple of miles from the A46 for easy access to Lincolnshire’s heritage, countryside, market towns and museums, and close to the Forestry Commission woods of Willingham and Nettleton for leafy strolls.

Both Caistor Outdoor Pursuits and the Caistor Equestrian Centre are about two miles away from the pub; for a gentler time, wander the four-mile section of the Viking Way from Nettleton to Caistor.

Dump the car at Caistor and take the bus from town to get to several Lincolnshire highlights like the market town of Brigg 10 minutes away, the National Fishing Heritage Centre and Ross Tiger deep-sea trawler at Grimsby, and a day among the seaside, pier and winter gardens at Cleethorpes, both within 15 minutes.

Five miles outside Grimsby, the six sails of heritage site Waltham Windmill are surrounded by a golf club which welcomes visitors; more courses are at for Laceby and Market Rasen for those who like to tee off on hols.

The market town of Louth, one of the most visited in Lincolnshire as it’s on the edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, is about 20 minutes away (if you’re wandering the Wolds, take time to steam along them too with a trip on the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway starting from Ludborough). Also by bus, take the 25-minute trip to lovely Lincoln for a day sightseeing around its cathedral, castle and museums.

Closer to home and by car, a 10-minute drive will take you to Market Rasen – perhaps for the racecourse? – and to tours around the Three Sisters Vineyard at Claxby.

If you’re happy to drive a bit further for a day trip, there's another soaring day out in the Lancaster bomber of Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre 45 minutes away.
