Sunflower Park: Grass pitches

General

  • Remote and rural site in the Lincolnshire countryside
  • Home to many rescue animals including hens, pigs, geese and ducks
  • Well-stocked fishing lake

What a lush site this is for gainful countryside holidays in the Lincolnshire countryside, whiling days away fishing, woodland walking and just lazing by the lakeside with open book or one's very own thoughts.

There are animals too… Small and family-run Sunflower Park near Gainsborough has taken in quite a few rescue animals in their time (they're a friendly and welcoming lot here), so on site you'll meet the three family pets as well as some alpacas, several ex-battery hens and their strutting cockerel. Also adopted are a family of geese, ducks, Kunekune pigs and a couple of Gloucester old spots: do make sure to say hi to all.

As you might guess, this is a relaxed and amiable site, set remotely and rurally on a five-acre plot that includes paddocks, a playground, open pastureland, a private woodland walk and a well-stocked fishing lake exclusively for guests' use.

You might reckon the park's remote rural setting makes it a wildlife haven too, and you'd reckon right: its boundaries run directly into Laughton Forest's Tuetoes Wood, a Forestry Commission nature haven for walking and cycling among the trees, and home to wildlife like deer, foxes, owls, rabbits, jays, pheasants, cuckoos, woodpeckers – all within viewable and hearing distance from your pitch.

Sunflower Park has toilets, showers, a drying room, a launderette and ice pack freezing. Firepits are available for hire for the whole of guests' stays and arrive full and ready to light.

Please note

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

    Absolutely fantastic site, greeted by the owners and briefed about the site, the kids loved the animals and the park and play area are really good.

    The shop is very well equipped and the washing/toilet facilities are good too.

    There is clearly a lot of hard work and passion gone into this campsite, the animals are very well looked after and the humans are too!

    Will be returning as soon as we can - Thank you!

    Everything, our 8 & 11 year old had the best time, so much so, we booked for next year too!
    The site is small but has so much for the kids to do and see. It feels extremely safe, the girls loved being able to play freely on the playground and stroke and feed all the animals. Thank you Josie and Ian for being such wonderful hosts.

    Josie is instantly welcoming and will do anything to help. Such a relaxed environment too. Felt instantly safe and comfortable. The site is small enough to let the kids roam about and see the animals, play on the park or just kick a ball around.
    Josie also runs a honesty shop/fridge where you just write down what your group has had and pay at the end of your stay.

Walkers, hikers, cyclists, energetic runners and nature spotters have Tuetoes Wood right beside Sunflower Park, the Forestry Commission-managed and publicly accessible part of vast Laughton Forest.

If you're an avid animal fan, take time to get to the Yorkshire Wildlife Park just outside Doncaster, home to a menagerie of over 300 from around the world, and to The Deep at Hull, one of the biggest aquariums in the UK and a habitat for over 3000 marine critters.

Going south, history buffs can get to Lincoln for eleventh century Lincoln Cathedral, the third biggest in Britain after St Paul's in London and York Minster. Lincoln Castle is also well worth a look, to gaze geekily upon one of the four original remaining copies of the Magna Carta.
