A great country pub/restaurant with a camping field

General

  • Small and peaceful adults-only site with pub and restaurant
  • A 20-minute drive from Skegness beaches, fairground and seal sanctuary
  • Within 25 minutes of the Viking Way and Lindsey Trail scenic routes

Country footpaths, home-cooked local produce and traditional ales, coastal walks and castles… half an hour’s drive from New York? No, there’s no mistake, but the New York in question is in rural Lincolnshire, as is the quiet, simple and very uncitylike Eaves Inn.

As you may have guessed, there's a country pub to be found here... The site's at the back of a traditional country inn, open from Thursdays to Sundays to serve local ale from its cosy bar and a wide menu of eats in its restaurant. It's all rather scenic too, as pitches are in a wide field with views across farmland and fen, in the centre of the village of Little Steeping. Around the region, it's a 20-minute drive from here to Skegness.

Shops and supermarkets are in Skegness and barbecues are allowed on this adults-only site, you can indulge in a bit of outdoor grilling any time you like. Work up an appetite by taking the dog for a brisk walk on the footpaths passing by the site.

While the combination of pub plus field plus view is spectacularly simple, that doesn’t mean roughing it: a modern block combines hot showers, sinks and a washing-up area, all of it gleaming and heated.

    The hospitality of Pauline and James could not be faulted. Fantastic food in the restaurant. The cleanliness of the restaurant and the bar was extremely high. We stayed in our caravan at the back of the Inn. The washing facilities whilst from the outside is a wooden building the interior is a purpose built shower, toilet and washbasin with a heated towel rail, and that too was spotless. As we were staying during the 'off season', we were welcomed into the Inn with our small dog, we couldn't recommend this restaurant and/or the caravan pitching highly enough.

    Disliked: 

    Cold toilet/showers cubicle

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely review. I'm pleased you enjoyed your stay. You should have mentioned to me about the heating in the showers it could have been turned up. We unfortunatly had to turn it down because in the really hot and steamy weather that we had, guests were turning the heating on in the cubicles and because it was so hot inside them leaving the doors open. So I can only apoligise. We look forward to seeing you again

    I liked everything about this site, the showers and toilets were very nice indeed, as was the pot washing facility. Nice level, large pitches and what I really liked is that you can choose your own pitch on arrival. Beautiful for star gazing and so peaceful. I will definitely be returning to this site.

  • Liked: 

    Idyllic, peaceful site in rural Lincolnshire. Lovely clean first class facilities. Great walking area for the dogs.
    Owners were friendly and welcoming.
    Very nice pub on site for home cooked meals.

    Disliked: 

    The smell from the chemical waste was a bit unpleasant. The site is a bit isolated so you can't exactly pop to the corner shop for a paper! (Not that we were bothered!)

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. I really do wish you had told me about the chemical smell because I could have solved the problem, after seeing your review it is now sorted out. Look forward to seeing you again

    Great shower block , although limited if all pitches were filled.
    Food excellent from the Eaves pub.

    Disliked: 

    Had drying tissue paper in toilet.

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely review and that you enjoyed your stay. Not sure what to say to your dislike as it didn't quite make sense. The toilet paper itself is interfolded toilet tissue rather than it being on a roll. The hand towel is centre pull tissue. Anyway, we look forward to seeing you again

Local attractions

If seeking a taste of traditional seaside stuff, set course for Skegness for sands and dunes, fairground rides and pier promenades, and endearing encounters with the residents of Natureland Seal Sanctuary.

For meetings of the furred and feathered kind, it’s 15 minutes to the Lincolnshire Wildlife Park, home to tigers, tapirs, lemurs and hundreds of species of rescued parrots. If you prefer your wildlife in the wild, make the half-hour journey to Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve, a prairie-like vastness of dunes and wetlands where you can spot terns and skylarks while walking the trails.

For longer hikes and bike rides, Horncastle (25 minutes) is a hub for two major routes: the Viking Way links the Humber Estuary with Rutland Water over 147 miles of grand terrain, while the 80 miles of the Lindsey Trail focus on the chalk hills, woodlands and ancient history of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Wartime history lies thick on the ground in these parts too, thanks to the role played by Lincolnshire’s people and airfields in the Battle of Britain: learn more at the Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre and the International Bomber Command Centre (20 minutes, half an hour and an hour away).

Whether birdwatching or battlements are your bag, Tattershall Castle (half an hour) is worth a turn around, with 15th-century show-off interiors, woodlands full of wildlife and lakes nearby for wakeboarding and watery assault courses.

Must see

  • Sandringham (27.0 miles)
  • Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Gardens (27.7 miles)
  • Lincoln Medieval Bishops' Palace (28.7 miles)

National Trust

  • Gunby Hall Estate: Monksthorpe Chapel (1.4 miles)
