General

  • Family-run site with private fishing lake, four miles from Skegness
  • Wildlife haven a mile from the pubs and village of Wainfleet
  • Café, shop and evening bar with alcohol and over 30 milkshake flavours

Have a right heavenly time among Lincolnshire coast, countryside and Wolds with a stay at Havenhouse Farm: its rural setting is only four miles from Skegness and a mile from the local village of Wainfleet, close to the Lincolnshire Wolds.

Once a farm and now a family-run campsite, the site is in a wildlife haven, so look out for the plentiful feathered species all around including ducks, barn owls and other resident birds. Nature spotting and twitching is easily available a few miles along at the coast.

Although it's nicely small, Havenhouse has facilities set up so you can peacefully while time away, such as a private eight-peg fishing lake stocked to the gills with carp, roach, rudd, tench, and perch of up to 14lb, that guests can angle in for a small extra charge. River fishing in the Steeping is also available on site and is free; please just make sure you have the right licence for both.

Havenhouse has a café, serving light meals and drinks, and Smokey Joe's bar, serving cocktails, wine, beer and shots as well as takeout and over 30 flavours of milkshake. A small site shop sells basics and ice cream; more of the same along with several pubs and a bank are a mile down the road at Wainfleet.

Amenities on site include a shower block with toilets, a washing-up area and chemical disposal.

    we went with a electric hook up ,it was busy when we went so was left with a extension to our tent which was a pain as another camper drove over it but not a problem.
    very quite camp site very close to skegness and other places
    loads of room to pitch our 8 man tent
    clean garden and grass was cut

    Disliked: 

    turned up and had to ring to say we had arrived, once we was given a site to pitch which looked like was in there back garden we was left to it we didnt know where anything was the toilets, the bar, or if the restaurant was open, it says on the website there is a on site shop, there is not! everything was always shut and management never to be seen .
    my kids was playing with some of the toys in the garden which they was enjoying , to there disappointment they had taken them away when we had gone out for the day and not seen again
    it was sign posted that toilets was cleaned daily which is false as the toilets ran out of paper on the second day and wasn't replaced for 2 days !
    we also had to pitch by a train line so was difficult to sleep with 3 small children

    Very friendly owners, there to help and accommodate, nice little fishing pond which I went in with waders due to duck weed but that's part of the fun, close to all attractions ie Skegness town Ingoldmells ect, also went on the canoes which were free to use on the river.

    Staff were lovely, when we arrived had the choice of different pitches. Once set up went to look round the facilities and like Michelle said they are not dirty there old but personally I didn't see anything wrong with them. (There only as clean as the last person used them) you can not blame staff for that. There was plenty of fish to catch in both the river and lake. My little boy loved Michelle and told her he wanted to fish but we didn't bring him a rod, the second day she brought him one over and it made his day. The bar is cosy and reasonable and was a lovely way to spend an evening talking and getting to know the campers and staff. The site was quiet and at night could see thousands of stars. I would definitely bring my family back there to camp again.

    Disliked: 

    To be honest there wasn't any dislike.

    Lovely quiet site next to a meandering river. Wildlife pond with ducks and great apple trees to scrump from. Small bar in the B&B, great breakfast and clean facilties. The site is a short drive from Skegness. Only warning is to bring your insect repellent - although apparently not usually an issue the mozzies were out in force this weekend.
