General

  • Peaceful Lincolnshire countryside site close to the River Witham
  • A 10-minute drive to Woodhall Spa; 20 minutes to Lincolnshire Wolds
  • Great for wildlife and stargazing; pub and tearoom within a short walk

The Holmes is a peaceful site in the lovely Lincolnshire countryside, with pitches spread over a six acres of grass field with views over fields and woodland all around.

The town of Woodhall Spa is just under 10 minutes’ drive away, and a fab little place it is too, with a heated open-air pool, the characterful Kinema in the Woods and the Dambusters memorial (the epicentre of the forties-themed weekend that takes over the town with various events each summer).

The site itself is a particularly quiet place to spend some time – it’s a good mile from any sizeable road, so it’s a top spot for wildlife-spotting or evenings of stargazing. You won’t be totally cut off though, as you can walk to a pub, tearoom and ancient woodland and abbey location from here, or set off for strolls along the banks of the River Witham, which runs just a short way from the site (it’s got a riverside cycle path too, if you’re bringing bikes…)

It’s a simple and laidback setup at this site, so you’ll be able to bring barbecues along, but it’s worth noting that there are no toilets or showers available to guests. Dogs are welcome but you'll need to keep them under control as there are chickens around the site.

    Lovely welcome from the host. Gave us a dozen delicious eggs too. Very very peaceful, away from the noise and chaos, but close enough to the town center via a cheap taxi.

From the manager...

So glad you enjoyed the campsite and your brief stay with us, as we explained the eco-loo was closed due to a robin nesting in it. The temporary one was just that. We hope to see you next year.

Secluded, rural, basic, perfectly level large field.05/07/2022

    This has to be one of the most rural secluded sites in the East, if not the country as a whole. At the end of a 3/4 mile farm road. A very large, perfectly level field so no problem finding somewhere to pitch. The facilities are basic - just a tap. There was a composting toilet but it was out of action because robins were nesting in the sawdust container.

    As others have mentioned, half a dozen eggs were left on the doorstep for me. The owner, Bob, was very welcoming but discreet - there in the background only if needed.

    Ten minutes from Woodhall Spa where there is a good range of shops and eateries and fairly central for the coast or Lincoln.

    A perfect getaway.
