Messingham Grange: Forest floor pitches under the trees

General

  • Spacious countryside site on a challenging 18-hole golf course
  • A 15-minute drive from Scunthorpe and 50 minutes from Cleethorpes
  • Golf driving range, tennis courts, fishing lake, clubhouse and bar

Fancy spending hols swinging a club, casting a line or serving up some aces? Head along to Messingham Grange, a family-friendly site 15 minutes’ drive from Scunthorpe in Lincolnshire – for a hole in one, lucky catch and grand slam all rolled into one.

The site’s on the grounds of an 18-hole and par-71 golf course, making it an absolute cinch to roll out of bed and onto the links. It’s a challenging course, but there’s also a 20-bay floodlit driving range for perfecting that swing and a resident PGA professional to hand out lessons.

Anyone who’s not much of a golfer, or who’s tagging along with a regular Tiger Woods, might prefer to spend days being active in a different way… Luckily, the site is well-designed for active types, with five outdoor tennis courts during high season (three in low) and a fishing lake full of carp, perch, roach and bream.

Never fear, that all-important 19th hole is present and correct too: a fully-licensed bar serves drinks into the evening, and the clubhouse doles out food daily. Prefer a self-catered option? Barbecues are welcome on site and there’s a small grocery shop in nearby Messingham (five minutes' drive).

Please note

Continental touring caravans (caravans built with the door on the right-hand side) are not permitted.

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro) and/or any of the following: Staffordshire bull terrier, American Staffordshire terrier, Rottweiler, any Mastiff or Tosa.

Poor facilities, dirty and not maintained during our stay.09/02/2021

  • Liked: 

    Th clubhouse and staff, all very friendly. Ok if you like golf or fishing.

    Disliked: 

    Clubhouse shut at six, after which gangs of locals descended on the fishing lake. The first evening they even lit a fire!!! The facilities which are small, just one shower and one toilet in the gents, and two toilets in the ladies, remained open 24/7. They need to be locked with an entry system for campers. All the locals used them and left them in a disgusting state.

    Only cleaned once during our three night stay and for the last two nights/three days there was no toilet paper!

    We should really have asked for our money back.

From the manager...

Dear Nicholas

Thank you for your review although we are disappointed to hear that you would not visit again or recommend us.

We take on your points regarding the issues with the fishing lake and toilets. This is something we are currently looking at resolving. Unfortunately, the behaviour of the locals is not acceptable and will not be tolerated at Messingham Grange.

We hope once we have made the sufficient changes, you will come back to stay with us and we will receive a more positive review.

Grass pitches but firm ground08/10/2021

  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    This was a lovely site, reasonably priced and well looked after. The golf course was busy the whole time we was there.

    My husband managed a few hours fishing too.

    Disliked: 

    The only thing that annoyed us was children messing about fishing, taking up most of the space. Have too admit parents was there also fishing but no control over their children? This should have been observed but no one kept a check. At a guess out of the 6 rods they had and a couple of lines, I bet none or only one had a licence. Why does no one manage the water x

From the manager...

Good Afternoon Jacqueline

Thank you very much for your 10/10 review. We really appreciate it!

Regarding your comments on Fishing, I will pass them onto Management to see how we can monitor this more successfully.

Local attractions

Lured here by that on-site fishing lake? That’s not the only fishing hot spot hereabouts: it’s a five-minute walk from the site to Messingham Grange fisheries, where carp, crucian and ide swim about, and a 30-minute drive to Lindholme Lakes, which are full of carp, silverfish and F1s.

Prefer wildlife encounters to be less of a predatory affair? It’s a five-minute walk to Messingham Zoo, where guests can get up close with raccoons, prairie dogs, arctic foxes and more, and there are safari-style rambles among lions, tigers and (polar) bears within 45 minutes’ drive at Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

History buffs can dive into the past quite easily round here too: wander the streets of Gainsthorpe Medieval Village 15 minutes from base (a little imagination may be required there), tour Normanby Hall's Regency-era mansion and its parklands 25 minutes away, and explore the intriguing Mr Straw’s House about 50 minutes from base.

Urban days (and plenty more history) can be had starting in Cleethorpes (50 minutes) on the boating lake, beach and Cleethorpes Coast Light Railway, before moving on to the big city at Lincoln (also 50 minutes) to see the castle, cathedral and copy of the Magna Carta, or to Hull and its art galleries, museums and The Deep aquarium an hour away.
