Lodge

General

  • Peaceful site opposite a 16th-century pub in Kirkby on Bain
  • 1.75-acre coarse fishing with carp, bream, rudd, roach and more
  • Three miles from Woodhall Spa and 21 from Lincoln

Fishing and fauna? Barn owls and kingfishers are among the residents you might encounter among the six acres of wildlife haven of Bainside House in Lincolnshire, with more feathered and furry critters easily spottable in the surrounding countryside via serene strolls along the waters of the Bain.

Fish should be easily spotted on site as well: Bainside House's main attraction is its 1.75-acre fishing lake stocked with carp, bream, tench, perch, rudd, roach and barbell. Fishing not your thing? Golf courses and cycle paths are nearby, or you could amble along to Woodhall Spa, zip along to Lincoln, or hike the Lincolnshire Wolds, the Lincolnshire Fens or the Viking Way. (Whatever you pick for your day, round it all off with an evening at the topping 16th-century pub opposite the site, which serves good food and a range of cask ales.)

Among the basic but well-maintained amenities at this friendly place are a toilet and shower block with disabled access; recycling, and chemical disposal (only biodegradable or cesspool-safe chemicals to be used here, please).

Bainside is for adults only.

    The site was really nice. Pitches were well laid out and spaced out as well as flat. Lots of green space around. Toilet unit was extremely clean. Very quiet and peaceful at night + bonus was excellent TV reception and 4g signal. I can imagine if you also happen to like fishing it would be perfect for you! Enjoyed my stay there, thank you.

    Fantastic peace and quiet. Speechless. Spotlessly clean. Showers amazing.Owners go beyond helpful and polite. Amazing pitches. Beautiful lake. Space abounds. Well looked after site. Well book stocked informative reception. Good sized concrete pitches and solid grass areas. Owners I am sure are very proud of their achievements. Will definitely go again. Not going to mention the Ebrington Arms next door which serves great food and good beer because it's not on the campsite but at least a 30 mtr walk away. Shortcut required please. .
    FIVE STARS IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THIS GEM.
    Thanks for having us.

Local attractions

This amiable place is close to the Bain river, in the small village of Kirkby on Bain between Horncastle and Coningsby. Walking trails and cycle paths are easy to access from here, along the river, from the village and to the nearby Sites of Special Scientific Interest of Kirkby Moor and Moor Farm Nature Reserves, to the west of Kirkby on Bain. The Lincolnshire Wolds are six miles away.

The handsome market town of Woodhall Spa three miles away is a Fairtrade village with a selection of top shops to spend some money at, and access to long-distance walks of the Fens including the Viking Way's 147 miles from the Humber Bridge in north Lincolnshire to Oakham in Rutland. (Much more easily, there's also the Spa Way, a traffic-free footpath of just over three miles from Woodhall Spa to Horncastle.)

Golfers can shoot along the courses and academy of Woodhall Spa's National Golf Centre, voted among the top 25 courses in the world; and if you'd rather have putting, a course plus tennis courts, an outdoor pool and a croquet lawn are at Jubilee Park three miles away.

For a day trip (or two), the castle, cathedral and shops of Lincoln can be reached in about 21 miles.
