Poachers Patch: Hedgehogs stay free of charge

General

  • Peaceful back-to-basics site nine miles from Newark
  • Campfire area for guests to share
  • Pub serving food 600 yards away

Steal a break getting back to basics on the four and a half level acres of Poachers Patch in the village of Brant Broughton in Lincolnshire – although there's easy access from the A17, this is a peaceful place, set back from the road on the south end of the village's High Street.

The pitching area is a long meadow that borders the Sandbeck stream to the south and the River Brant to the east, and has a designated campfire area for all guests to share (ghost stories a must, of course…) and a loo block with hot and cold water. Well-behaved dogs are welcome on site.

A nursery selling fresh veg and garden plants is opposite the site and local pub the Generous Briton is 600 yards away; it serves food and takeaways, and has a café opposite that's open from Thursdays through to Sundays. Nearby Navenby has a fish and chip shop, an Indian takeaway, a baker, a butcher, antique shops and two pubs.

Please pitch up before sunset, as this site may be difficult to access after dark.

Please note

The park does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Breed-specific legislation (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Coronavirus update: All facilities are now open, but visitors with their own facilities are politely requested that they continue to use them.

    We have stayed before, but went with friends this time, always a friendly welcome and nothing is too much trouble. the grass is level enough where we parked, didn't need ramps. Close to the excellent Generous Briton which serves very good food. Lovely walks around the village and a nice peaceful site.
