A great country pub/restaurant with a camping field

General

  • Small and peaceful adults-only site with pub and restaurant
  • A 20-minute drive from Skegness beaches, fairground and seal sanctuary
  • Within 25 minutes of the Viking Way and Lindsey Trail scenic routes

Country footpaths, home-cooked local produce and traditional ales, coastal walks and castles… half an hour’s drive from New York? No, there’s no mistake, but the New York in question is in rural Lincolnshire, as is the quiet, simple and very uncitylike Eaves Inn.

As you may have guessed, there's a country pub to be found here... The site's at the back of a traditional country inn, open from Thursdays to Sundays to serve local ale from its cosy bar and a wide menu of eats in its restaurant. It's all rather scenic too, as pitches are in a wide field with views across farmland and fen, in the centre of the village of Little Steeping. Around the region, it's a 20-minute drive from here to Skegness.

Shops and supermarkets are in Skegness and barbecues are allowed on this adults-only site, you can indulge in a bit of outdoor grilling any time you like. Work up an appetite by taking the dog for a brisk walk on the footpaths passing by the site.

While the combination of pub plus field plus view is spectacularly simple, that doesn’t mean roughing it: a modern block combines hot showers, sinks and a washing-up area, all of it gleaming and heated.

    This is a lovely peaceful site. There are two very nice modern showers with toilets included.
    The Eaves Inn is open Thursday to Sunday and does food of exceptional quality (and quantity!) we stayed here Thursday to Sunday and ate in the restaurant everyday and it was delicious on every occasion.
    The quality of the service is also worth mentioning. We were always served promptly by polite and friendly staff.
    They are well organised with plenty of sanitising solution at various locations around the whole site and restaurant.
    We loved our stay here and would definitely come back (even if it means going out of our way!)

    Loverly pub food. Great pub hosts very friendly and covid safe. Fantastic food. Came for 1 night tent camping with electric hook up. Good places to walk near by with dogs. Loved the pubs 4 little dogs Evie, Lizzy. MR CHIPS and Jessie. All cute loverly dogs and landlady very friendly. Could not recommend the pub enough for its food. It was fantastic.
    Toilet and shower facilities clean and had x 2 of them so was never a que.

    Disliked: 

    Only downside was the grass and land bit uneven so on the night my husband was on the side with a slight dip so he was rolling of the bed. But I was comfy lol x . The cut grass did get on me nerves a bit as it had dried out and with the wind despite been warm the grass kept going in me tent. Also a couple of tree branches fell near to our tent. It does look like some of the trees need a trim to prevent large branches falling off for safety. But I would come back to this site as electric hook up and site was friendly and pub fantastic food.

    Very good food
    Pauline (owner) & Lisa who looked after us when inside the pub very friendly..
    Hand sanitiser points all over the place.

    Disliked: 

    Very long grass ,and the grass when wet was not good . Many RAF fighter plane flying even at night did not help

From the manager...

The toilets are not far away from anyone. The grass well it was not growing now it is and the guy who was mowing it for me has had a stroke so I have had to find some one elese to cut the grass. The RAF do a brilliant job. They are doing night manouvers to keep all of us safe.

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

If seeking a taste of traditional seaside stuff, set course for Skegness for sands and dunes, fairground rides and pier promenades, and endearing encounters with the residents of Natureland Seal Sanctuary.

For meetings of the furred and feathered kind, it’s 15 minutes to the Lincolnshire Wildlife Park, home to tigers, tapirs, lemurs and hundreds of species of rescued parrots. If you prefer your wildlife in the wild, make the half-hour journey to Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve, a prairie-like vastness of dunes and wetlands where you can spot terns and skylarks while walking the trails.

For longer hikes and bike rides, Horncastle (25 minutes) is a hub for two major routes: the Viking Way links the Humber Estuary with Rutland Water over 147 miles of grand terrain, while the 80 miles of the Lindsey Trail focus on the chalk hills, woodlands and ancient history of the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Wartime history lies thick on the ground in these parts too, thanks to the role played by Lincolnshire’s people and airfields in the Battle of Britain: learn more at the Aviation Heritage Centre in East Kirkby, the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre and the International Bomber Command Centre (20 minutes, half an hour and an hour away).

Whether birdwatching or battlements are your bag, Tattershall Castle (half an hour) is worth a turn around, with 15th-century show-off interiors, woodlands full of wildlife and lakes nearby for wakeboarding and watery assault courses.

Must see

  • Sandringham (43.5 kilometres)
  • Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Gardens (44.6 kilometres)
  • Lincoln Medieval Bishops' Palace (46.2 kilometres)

National Trust

  • Gunby Hall Estate: Monksthorpe Chapel (2.3 kilometres)
