The Eaves Inn: Views of the 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.

    Although the site is on a field at the back of the pub it is very quiet and peaceful all you can hear is the birds singing. We couldn't eat at the pub as it was full so would recommend booking a table at the same time. The toilets and showers were kept clean

    Dogs wandering off lead. Rubbish on pitches

From the manager...

I do ask for dog owners to be mindful of other campers and keep them on leads, we are a dog friendly site at the end of the day, as for rubbish being left on site there was none when the gardener came to mow the camp site so the rubbish must have been picked up and thrown away by the campers in question and none of the staff saw any either. We never have any problems with people leaving rubbish Pitches are checked after everyone leaves

    Quiet pitch near the facilities

    Disliked: 

    When we arrived the showers were stone cold so I left a message for the owner to ring me but they never returned my call.

    The floor where the showers and toilets were was covered in water from the shower which was leaking so had to be constantly mopped.

    In fact we never met the owner - we were told to find our own pitch and had to ring and leave a message if we had a query which is not acceptable.

    We booked meals in the Eaves Inn for 2 nights and had to wait over an hour for the meal to arrive, although there weren't many people in the pub.

    The stay was disappointing.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. The reason the showers were cold was because the fuse had flicked off I did not get your message as I had had eye surgery that day and was told by the surgeon to stay in bed as I was very shaky and told not to work for three to four weeks. You spoke to a member of staff and the problem was sorted out straight away. The leak in the showers we have had 4 plumbers in to find out where the water is coming from and they cannot find it that is why there is a deck broom and a mop for guests to use, aside from that the toilets and showers are cleaned twice a day sometimes 3
The food is all freshly cooked to order and not dinged

    Only two toilets for the whole site.
    Expensive to eat at the pub.
    No WiFi

From the manager...

Thank you for your review I think that the two units with showers and toilets is enough for what is a small site. There are plenty of dishes on the menu for just around £10. All the food is homemade using quality local ingredients and fresh local vegetables I do not serve up Pucka pies for a fiver. You should have asked for the WiFi password the waitress would have been more than happy to supply it

Directions


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

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)
