Why not enter some details and get an accurate price?

General

  • Peaceful site opposite a 16th-century pub in Kirkby on Bain
  • 1.75-acre coarse fishing with carp, bream, rudd, roach and more
  • Three miles from Woodhall Spa and 21 from Lincoln

Fishing and fauna? Barn owls and kingfishers are among the residents you might encounter among the six acres of wildlife haven of Bainside House in Lincolnshire, with more feathered and furry critters easily spottable in the surrounding countryside via serene strolls along the waters of the Bain.

Fish should be easily spotted on site as well: Bainside House's main attraction is its 1.75-acre fishing lake stocked with carp, bream, tench, perch, rudd, roach and barbell. Fishing not your thing? Golf courses and cycle paths are nearby, or you could amble along to Woodhall Spa, zip along to Lincoln, or hike the Lincolnshire Wolds, the Lincolnshire Fens or the Viking Way. (Whatever you pick for your day, round it all off with an evening at the topping 16th-century pub opposite the site, which serves good food and a range of cask ales.)

Among the basic but well-maintained amenities at this friendly place are a toilet and shower block with disabled access; recycling, and chemical disposal (only biodegradable or cesspool-safe chemicals to be used here, please).

Bainside is for adults only.

    We have just returned home from a wonderful stay at Bainside House. We stayed in the pod next to the lake which was beautiful to wake up to each morning. The pod had everything we needed and we had five really relaxed restful nights here. The sofa bed is very comfortable and the pod was very clean. We felt the owners went over and above to help us enjoy our stay. It really is a lovely little site with really clean toilet and shower facilities that cater for everyone. Disabled toilet and shower on site too. There are some lovely little walks nearby and we had Sunday lunch in the pub next door which was very tasty.

    Disliked: 

    Only that we had to go home! Honestly there was nothing to complain about. We will recommend to our friends and families and hope to visit again maybe next year.

From the manager...

    house next door had three dogs which constantly barked both early morning and late at night, site owner said that they were moving but I didn't see a For Sale sign. Across the road lots of big houses being built so constant noise through the day.

From the manager...

Tony, Thank you for your comments and points noted.

The issues you have mentioned above have not been picked up by any other customers staying at the same time, in fact 2 have extended there stay with us.

We don't feel this is a real problem at this stage, as we have a lot of repeat custom and the 6 houses will be complete in the near future.

We will monitor all comments and act to these if we feel the need to.

We are sorry that you feel you will not return in the future.

Again many thanks for your comments

    Hi Mick n Sheila just wanted to say a big thanks for our Easter week's holiday we had a good time despite challenging conditions with the bad weather over the weekend .
    We arrived on Thursday afternoon and we met Mick the owner who showed us to our pitch explained the facilities etc .
    During our stay both Mick n Sheila went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable they are knowledgeable about what's on and what there is to do in the area which we found invaluable.
    The on site shower n toilet is disabled friendly there is a second toilet which is for both site users and fishermen there is also another toilet and shower room under construction this will be ready for the main season .
    The toilet and shower rooms where spotlessly clean at all times.
    And for me the big bonus is there is onsite fishing available the lake is maintained by Mick to a high standard really appreciate this and enjoyed the fishing.
    There is food and hot drinks available if you don't feel like cooking he does a mean cheese burger I'd have one every day if the good lady would let me .
    I really recommend you give this site a try you won't be disappointed asMick n Sheila go out of there way to make you welcome and yes we will be going back .

Local attractions

This amiable place is close to the Bain river, in the small village of Kirkby on Bain between Horncastle and Coningsby. Walking trails and cycle paths are easy to access from here, along the river, from the village and to the nearby Sites of Special Scientific Interest of Kirkby Moor and Moor Farm Nature Reserves, to the west of Kirkby on Bain. The Lincolnshire Wolds are six miles away.

The handsome market town of Woodhall Spa three miles away is a Fairtrade village with a selection of top shops to spend some money at, and access to long-distance walks of the Fens including the Viking Way's 147 miles from the Humber Bridge in north Lincolnshire to Oakham in Rutland. (Much more easily, there's also the Spa Way, a traffic-free footpath of just over three miles from Woodhall Spa to Horncastle.)

Golfers can shoot along the courses and academy of Woodhall Spa's National Golf Centre, voted among the top 25 courses in the world; and if you'd rather have putting, a course plus tennis courts, an outdoor pool and a croquet lawn are at Jubilee Park three miles away.

For a day trip (or two), the castle, cathedral and shops of Lincoln can be reached in about 21 miles.
