General

  • 70-acre estate including fields and woodlands
  • Large fishing lake with rudd, roach and tench
  • Perfect place to explore the Lincolnshire countryside

No word of a lie: you might land a whopper of a carp at Oakhill Leisure between Lincoln and Newark-on-Trent. For monsters of up to 35lb have been angled for at the site's six-acre fishing lake, as well as sizeable specimens of rudd, roach and tench.

If you're not fishing or if you feel like doing a victory lap after landing a massive carp, plenty is on hand to explore, as Oakhill is on a site made up of the 10-acre campsite, walking and playing fields covering 30 acres, and finally about 20 acres of woodland. Take the 20 to 30 minute circular walk around the lake and through the woodland; it and the site grounds are pretty handsome....

The accommodation part of Oakhill is on flat and well-drained grassland, bordered by trees on three sides and a hedge. Toilets, showers (new in 2019) and a washroom are in the facilities building and a play area is also on site.

But back to the fishing... You'll need a fishing licence (available at the post office) to fish at Oakhill Leisure, as well as your own equipment and bait; a small charge applies to angle on site, and you'll need to call the office in advance to book your peg. Please note that under-16s must be accompanied by an adult and that they aren't allowed to stay around the lake overnight.

  • Liked: 

    Stayed 2 nights to break a journey south. The site is quite large with plenty of seasonal pitches, touring pitches are all grass but level. There are plenty of nice dog walks around the site including areas where they can run free.
    Facilities very modern and clean, site doing all they can to be Covid safe (pity the guests aren't).
    Nice little village, Witham Saint Hughs, about half hours walk, with shop, pub & takeaways.
    Wardens very friendly and helpful

    Disliked: 

From the manager...

Thank you so much for your very complimentary review.

I hope you were fully rested for the remainder of your journey.

We have some lovely villages and walks locally should you return an exploration of the area is well worth the effort

Kind regards from all of the team at Oakhill

  • Liked: 

    Ahhh... Peace, perfect peace.
    What a lovely quiet well kept campsite set in a beautiful location surrounded by fishing lakes and woodland.
    All of the campsite staff were very pleasant.
    Highly recommended for a peaceful stay.
    I/we will definately be staying here again without a doubt.

    Disliked: 

    There is nothing to dislike about this campsite, however, it would have been nice to have some simple benches/logs by the tree line where the tents are pitched to obviously sit on. (When you arrive on a bicycle, you can't bring your own seating).

From the manager...

Thank you for the lovely review, So glad you enjoyed our site. Hopefully we will see you again soon, with your wife and doggies next time.
