Pitches

General

  • Family-friendly park in the grounds of a 16th-century country pub
  • A 10-minute drive from Skegness and 15 from the Lincolnshire Wolds
  • Fishing lake on site and inn hosting evening entertainment

It may be in the heart of rural Lincolnshire, but it’s a mere 10-minute drive from dog-friendly Holly Tree Country Caravan Park and Pub to Skegness for adventures by the sea.

Anglers take note – you’ll have access to a fab fishing lake, which is well-stocked with various species, including large tench, bream and carp (rumour has it the beasts weigh up to 25lb). And if you’re not into fishing, the lake is still a scenic spot in which to pass some time.

Continue with water explores and head out to stretch your legs – the site borders the Steeping river, with plenty of cycle tracks and country walks in the area to roam. For ventures further afield, the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a 15-minute drive away.

When you're not out exploring the Wolds or the coast, settle in for cosy evenings at the on-site pub (open seven days a week). The traditional, kid-friendly place dates back to the 16th century, with an open fire, pool table and outdoor seating area. They put on entertainment like bingo, pub quizzes and karaoke… and it’s particularly well known for its maggot racing.

The amenities at base include showers, toilets and a washing-up area; barbecues are permitted.

From the manager...

Our caravan park is very dog friendly, although the main bar area doesn't allow dogs inside, we have a purpose built dog house attached to the pub with tables and chairs and retro arcade games. There is a hatch through to the main pub to allow people to be served drinks etc. Its important to us that guests that dont want to leave their dogs back in their caravans can enjoy a drink too.

    Nice small, neat and tidy and quiet site, ran very efficiently with clean and very adequate facilities. We had a great pitch given as we arrived right by the lake and this was right next to the site office and a very quick walk to the pub. They are booking for places at the pub which is only open fri,sat,sun nights. My son enjoyed the games room, was some very retro games in there too. It’s a quiet place with a traditional pub and local people are friendly. Looks like some great fishing can be had here too with competition on Sunday mornings. Lots of regular residents and visitors. The site is very secure, we really liked that we did not have to worry about security. It was a bonus that you can order Italian takeaway from the pub, they come around and take your orders and send out for it. We didn’t have time to explore around the campsite much, mostly due to the weather,

Local attractions

You won’t be short of things to do in Lincolnshire when bedding down at this park. For starters, it’s a 10-minute drive from the 18th-century Gunby Estate, Hall and Gardens, as well as being the same distance from the Bengal tigers and 100 parrot species at Lincolnshire Wildlife Park.

Spot more creatures – this time of the underwater sort – at Skegness Aquarium (15 minutes), lingering for longer in the town to take in the model village as well. Adrenaline-seekers can saunter over to the Pleasure Beach FairGround (20 minutes) afterwards for rollercoaster rides by the beach.

Fantasy Island theme park (20 minutes) is another place to get your thrills, and those more interested in sedate times can have a gentle jaunt on the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway (20 minutes) instead.

If you’re not done with animal attractions, head to the Natureland Seal Sanctuary, pet the barnyard critters at Hardy's Animal Farm and see specimens from faraway climates at the ARK wildlife park & exotic animal sanctuary (all 20 minutes).
