General

  • Eco-friendly and laidback site, off grid among meadows and woodland
  • A 10-minute stroll from Burgh-le-Marsh with takeaways and seven pubs
  • Campfires welcome: private firepit on each pitch

Straight up: you'll find lots to like at this lovely little Lincolnshire site.

At the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds an easy few miles from the coast at Skeggy and Ingoldmells, Crooked Willow Campsite has been set up by owner Simon to give seaside campers as back-to-nature a holiday as poss: it's a farm site that's firmly off grid, among wild meadows and woodland glades. And – always a direct hit with most types of guest – campfires are allowed and each pitch has its own firepit.

The site amenities – shower and toilet facilities and family bathroom with changing area – are in a traditional stable block next to the washing-up area; several freshwater taps are around the site along with a chemical waste disposal point.

And do you like to go back to basics but also be sure of obtaining a curry and a pint when you might fancy? Crooked Willow Campsite is a piffling three-quarters of a mile from Burgh-le-Marsh, where Lincolnshire campers can hunt down refreshments at the restaurant, tearoom, takeaway, chip shop and – lots to like again – no less than seven local pubs.

    Noisy main highway, literally on door step.
    Pitch was extremely uneven , with holes in the pitch the size of a car tyres , in the dark if you were not careful you would fall in them as grass was fairly long in places so was unable to detect them early. Young child was always falling in them or from them when making trips to bathroom.

    Able to cook over a real campfire. Owner Simon provided marshmellows and tripod hire and also sold wood and kindling.
    Good location with pubs, shops etc nearby
    Had a dead battery due to my oldest charging his phone and Simon helped jump start my car and was very friendly!
    Good shower and toilet facilities.

    Disliked: 

    The campsite is near a road which has been mentioned before on here so didnt really affect us too much.

Also popular around the coast are the towns of Sutton-on-Sea and Mablethorpe, famed for their hundreds of colourful bathing huts and the sand train at Mablethorpe; go further north to get to the coastal village of Saltfleet and its 200 year old pub.

Woldswise, take yourself off into the walking and cycling trails of the countryside or see some of the Wolds attractions, like the watermill and wildfowl gardens of Claythorpe and the market towns of Louth and Market Rasen. Brought your bike? The Wolds have many excellent motorbiking routes and a tiptop racing circuit at Cadwell Park.

If you're here to nature spot, seeing the seals at Donna Nook should be on your list; more local critters can be observed at the Snipe Dales Nature Reserve, the Saltfleetby-Theddlethorpe Dunes National Nature Reserve and the straightforwardly excellent Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve, running south of Skegness to the Wash.
