General

  • Small friendly site 13 miles from Lincoln
  • Level and well-drained site
  • On the Ermine Way and the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Trail

What a handsomely historic location has the hamlet of Byards Leap – for it's between ancient Lincoln and the old market towns of Sleaford, Newark and Grantham, is on an aged Roman road, and is the setting of ye olde Byards Leap legend dating back centuries (Byard was a high-jumping horse, in case you're wondering). And the Knights Templar used to hang out around here too…

Folks use The Beeches site in the hamlet as a base to explore historic Lincolnshire or as a stopover enroute to Norfolk or the east coast: plenty of history around in those there parts too. It's a small and friendly site, level, grassy and well drained, with rather nice views over Lincolnshire farmland; access to the Ermine Way is straight from the site.

The Beeches has a play area and disabled-friendly amenities a few steps from the pitching area. It's next to the Byards Leap café which dishes up excellent breakfasts and lunches from Thursday to Sunday; a handful of good pubs and restaurants is within a five-mile radius too.

Dogs are welcome at The Beeches – and the folk here recommend old Roman road Ermine Street as a top spot for walkies.

Please note

A charge of £0.60 ($1.17) applies for the use of the shower.

    Some road noise as it’s near the A17, but not really a big issue. Was quiet enough overnight.

    Great family run business. They were very helpful and are keen to help if u need it. Small play area in the woods and toys the children can use while on camp. We were a family of 2 tourers with grandchldren aged 10. 6, 4. And they loved it there. They were excited about the rabbits near by who have made a home near the camp. Nice little town near by in spalding with lots of little shops and a wetherspoons if u want a bite to eat or a drink.

    Disliked: 

    The main rd that runs alongside the beeches can be quite noisy so if you need complete quiet to sleep this isnt the camp for you. Other wise go for it. It did not bother us,we got used to it

    Very helpful friendly owners. It was lovely that the owners were on site and made sure that everyone was OK and helped to solve any problems and questions we had. They could not do enough to help. The site had a small friendly feel to it which we enjoyed and appreciated. Lovely sunsets. The pitch was very spacious. The toilets and showers were clean and there was never a queue. Will definitely be back.

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

Pick up details of local walks, cycle routes and town maps as well as leaflets and tourist info on site: there's quite a bit to do all around. A mix of quiet roads and bridleways linking the area's Lincolnshire villages means there's quite a bit to see if you want to get around by foot, pedal or horse.

As well as being on the Ermine Way, The Beeches is also on the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Trail and is close to the RAF Cranwell Heritage Centre and the Newark Air Museum. The Newark Showground is nearby too for shows, displays and events.

Plenty more history is at Lincoln – see the castle and cathedral if you only have time for two things – and at nearby National Trust properties like Grantham House and Tattershall Castle.

Or take trips around Lincolnshire's old towns, like Sleaford, a market town since the twelfth century; Grantham, where Isaac Newton went to school, and Newark, besieged by the roundy-headed ones in the English Civil War.

Must see

  • Belton House (11.7 kilometres)
  • Lincoln Medieval Bishops' Palace (22.3 kilometres)
  • Lincoln Cathedral (22.5 kilometres)

National Trust
