Close to fishing spots

General

  • Leafy family-friendly site with five scenic fishing lakes
  • A 35-minute drive from Lincoln and under an hour from Nottingham
  • Restaurant, bar, pool, darts, boules, jukebox and night fishing

Fishing for a calming hol spent out in nature? Net yourself the dream stay at Woodland Waters, a family-friendly site on the edge of Ancaster village, 15 minutes’ drive from the Lincolnshire town of Grantham.

This scenic spot would be quite the catch for fishing fans – there are five well-stocked fishing lakes on site where carp, tench, bream and others are up for catch and release, night fishing is available on request and matches are held throughout the year.

Anyone not keen on casting a line can devote energies to other pursuits, like rustling up a picnic spread for lakeside eats, spending some time with the kids at the play area or exploring the 72 acres of wooded valley. Not biting? Wander the Ermine Street Roman road (which stretches between London and York and passes through Ancaster) or hurry along to Ancaster Leisure (10 minutes away) for karting, paintball, laser tag and bowling.

That sounds like an itinerary that requires high energy, so make sure to spend some onsite time in Woody’s Bar and Lakeview Restaurant to sample homemade and locally sourced food, chug a few ales, beers and wines, challenge someone to pool, boules or darts, cuddle up next to the woodburning stove, and take in the views over the lakes while listening to tunes from the jukebox.

Reviewer's country: United KingdomAnonymousConfirmed

  • Electric asphalt touring caravan pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Good sized level pitch with water tap.Sheltered position but near enough to bar/restaurant.
    Nice areas to walk or cycle round the site and many lakes.
    Easy walk into village although only pub is the far end.
    Everything clean and well kept

    Disliked: 

    Restaurant prices a little high but food good.
    No WiFi unless you pay high daily price to use.for us but
    Only one elsan point which was at the toilet block and some way away.
    Only one motorhome waste water drain at far end by exit.
    Ok for the 4day stay for two of us but would need to drive to elsan and waste points if staying longer or more people using the motorhome facilities.

Local attractions

History buffs will certainly want to make their hasty way to this part of Lincolnshire. It’s a treasure trove of old England... Grantham (15 minutes’ drive) is a top choice for first forays into the past – it’s the town where Isaac Newton attended school and is home to the spectacular 14th-century Grantham House as well as a local history museum that gives an overview of everything from the Normandy landings to the Iron Lady.

If appetites for stately piles have been whetted by Grantham, satisfaction can be found within easy reach: the 17th-century Belton House and its gardens, parkland and adventure playground are 10 minutes from base, and Newton’s homestead of Woolsthorpe Manor (although much more modest) is within 20 minutes – just watch out for falling fruit...

Step back into the present day and take to the open air for refreshing saunters around Easton Walled Garden – referred to by US president Franklin D Roosevelt as ‘a dream of Nirvana…almost too good to be true’ – and the scenic market town of Sleaford, both 15 minutes from home base.

Need more bang for your urban buck? Lincoln is 35 minutes away for shopping and even more history, and Nottingham’s arboretum, caves and Robin Hood experience are within an hour.

Must see

  • Belton House (6.4 kilometres)
  • Belvoir Castle (18.4 kilometres)
