The Skipworth Arms: Hardstanding pitches

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.

As a budget site it's reasonable value for money but needs improvment13/11/2022

  • Electric optional hardstanding touring pitch

    This site is ok, but nothing to write home about. Pitch was hard standing, a little slopped, but easy enough to get level with blocks. The electric was on meter using a card which cost £10 £5 deposit and £5 credit, and you get back what you don't use. Over 2 nights I only use £2.50, so they are not charging a silly rate
    Another reviewer said the pub was a dump it's not it is however very plain nothing fancy but clean and tidy which is good enough for me.
    Trains do go by from time to time as the track is right next to the site. I don't know if they run all night as they didn't really bother me and I slept fine, but some may find them disturbing.
    The toilet/shower block while is seemed clean inside the outside is in a poor state
    Staff where friendly enough.

    Disliked: 

    The chemical disposal point was hard to find and totally disgusting, I don't think it had ever been cleaned. At first it looked like it was blocked but was able to empty my waste into it but there is no flush and the water hose didn't help make waste go down either

    Disliked: 

    how small and limited tent pitches were i believe due to BH weekend management decided to squeeze as many people as possible. not even half a meter in between tents overcrowded and greedy in my opinion! Some people seen their pitches as they arrived and decided to go as so squeezed!

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.
