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 that due to being in a forest location and on sandy ground, you will most likely come across spiders, ants, lizards, grass snakes, beetles etc. Please only book if you are comfortable with the fact that there will be wildlife around you.

Please note

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

    Clean site, good facilities onsite including food and drink mean you can do almost everything here. Staff very friendly and accommodating. Went on motorcycles so was concerned about ground before getting there but no need, ground was more than adequate for the side stand (no puck needed).
    If I'm ever up there again motocamping it will be on my list of places to check.

We are very resistant to increase pitch numbers and remain committed to providing everyone plenty of room & far more than most other campsite.
It is the first full summer post Covid and places are gonna be busy, well if they are any good

Wonderful animals, friendly owners - special place08/07/2022

Reviewer's country: United KingdomHolly P.Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    The animals were absolutely fantastic. It's obvious that every single one of them is well cared for and well loved. We rocked up with a bag of fruit and vegetables for them and Josie said we could feed them whatever we wanted - we tried to 'research' what was best for what animal so fed the pigs the (low calorie) watermelon, whilst the goats got some apples and the geese got the greens and some lettuce. The Guinea pigs also liked the lettuce and cucumber!

    Josie was lovely and friendly - I could have talked to her for hours over her amazing animals. The entire site had a really chilled and lovely 'vibe' to it and it's a wonderful location. The shop / hut is brilliant, with loads of local ciders and other drinks and food.

    Very flat and large pitches - we slept really well both nights we were there and I actually found the Geese waking up and honking really funny :-)

    Disliked: 

    Two badly behaved / feral children chasing the white ducks on the first day we were there by the lake, combined with the ignorant Father watching them and not doing anything about it (My Husband and I decided to 'take a walk' over to the ducks which stopped their behaviour, but why can't all parents properly supervise their children and teach them to be kind to animals?)

    On the Friday night, some campers in the non electricity field wanted to relive the late 90's and was playing 'Born Slippy' 'For an Angel' and other lovely music really loudly until 10.20pm which wasn't great (we weren't in the same field but could hear everything due to the level of noise). Just as I was going to text Josie and Ian, someone told him to turn it off which he did with a 'Sorry', so the campsite was totally quiet from 10.30pm onwards.

    Neither things were the campsites fault - it's just such a shame that not everyone can just chill out and enjoy the animals!

From the manager...

Great review and very true observations.
Our sentiments exactly 🌻🌻👍👍

Local attractions

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.
