General

  • Pub and food site near Spalding and 20 minutes from Wisbech
  • Lounge with open fire and pool tables
  • Food including Sunday lunches and pub grub

Hurrah, another Pitchup.com pub campsite! And what a decent pub it is too.

The Rose and Crown pub, restaurant and caravan park in Lincolnshire's Holbeach Hurn near Spalding has all sorts of proper touches you'll likely like to see in an inn, like a warmly welcoming atmosphere for all manner of customers, a main lounge with an open fire, beer garden, outside play area, large marquee and a games room with TV, a pool table, air hockey and arcade games. And plenty of space in the adjoining grounds for a bit of football or rounders if you're the type to feel a tad competitive after a pint…

If you also like to see proper food in pubs, you should be happy here with the mixed grills, trad pub grub, bar snacks, veggie choices, piles of homemade desserts, and proper chips handcut from locally-sourced spuds, from a menu dished up every day of the week from 9am to 9pm. And as the Rose and Crown is one of the last independent breweries in the region, you'll be fairly certain of getting a decent pint too.

The pub was taken over in the summer of 2015 by Carol and Doug, who want their inn and camping guests to have as enjoyable a stay as possible: they've added a garden bar with a second pool table, and also look after a large patio to the rear of the pub, a landscaped pond and an extensive car park.

Wifi can be picked up in the pub but at times it can be poor as the site is rural.

Thank you for your comments, unfortunately we had families on who did not respect the facilities would be used by other campers, the cleaner checks several times through the day, I just wish people would treat the toilets and showers as they do at home,the bulk of people do clean after themselves but it only takes a few not to (ie toilet paper dropped on floor, just pick it up and flush it, close shower doors so as not to flood the entire floor) if your shower, shampoo etc as run out put it in the bin,

    The amount of space for the kids to play and explore where they were still in eyesight was great, it meant they could have fun while we relaxed.
    Lovely staff and a nice pub

    Disliked: 

    Only slight criticism which didnt affect our stay at all was on of the paths had lots of rubble some of which were bits of porcelain etc but this had been put down to help drainage.

From the manager...

thank you for the comments, yes unfortunately we had laid rumble (last few weeks we have had a lot of rain, and thought we needed to sort the mud problem out quickly and small stones will be laid on top, we concentrated on the well used area 1st,) ie entrance to shower block, roads into fields. hope this as not put you off returning and if you return will see further improvements

Thank you, vegetarians and vegans are rare to us but we are very happy you was happy with what we offered to you, maybe you could send some advise as on what you would like to eat to give us more of a idea as what most vegetarians prefer,

Directions


From the A17 at Fleet Hargate, turn at the signpost Hovenden House and after 1/4 miles turn left, signposted Holbeach Hurn. After approximately 3/4 mile on the right through the village is the Rose and Crown Pub. A few yards further on and the site entrance is on your right.

When your satnav states you are at your destination, proceed straight ahead where you will see the Rose and Crown Pub (bright yellow) on your right, then proceed for another 30 yards where you will see the site entrance again on the right.

Please don't drive down Low Road as this is only a small lane which tourers and motorhomes find it hard to come down.

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

You'll find a fair bit to do within a reasonable drive of the Rose and Crown, like Wisbech and its Elgoods Brewery, gardens and maze 20 minutes away, and royal days out at Sandringham within 19 miles. Both Hunstanton and Skegness are within about 45 minutes' drive.

Closer to home are two golf courses and Spalding's Springfields Outlet Shopping & Festival Gardens, which also has a tourist point detailing local attractions.

Spend a day around the Wash too for birdwatching at Frieston, Gibraltar Point and RSPB Snettingsham and a look at the RAF bombing range where visitors are welcome to watch the aircraft.

Historians have the National Trust's Peckover House or the Octavia Hill Birth Place Museum, both in Wisbech, to wander around, and if you have kids along on your hol, they'll probably fancy wanders around Fun Farm, Alley Katz Bowling or the Butterfly Wildlife Park.

Must see

  • Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Gardens (9.6 miles)
  • Sandringham (18.6 miles)
  • Peterborough Cathedral (21.8 miles)

National Trust

  • Peckover House and Garden (11.7 miles)
