About the site…

This enchanting site is situated at the foot of the Lincolnshire Wolds, fringing the National Trust Gunby Estate. Surrounded by mature hedges and trees, this sunny site flanked  by a beautiful garden welcomes all visitors to tour during their stay by arrangement. On the south side, there’s natural wildlife ponds attracting an abundance of wildlife that call it home. Ducklings popping in and out of their houses, squirrels scampering, woodpeckers tapping, dragonflies hovering, swifts and bats feeding on the wing! Even the odd kingfisher snapping up a stickleback! While walking about the ponds, chance upon ‘the sunset gazebo’ overlooking far reaching views of the Wolds and adjacent grazing cattle, big skies and stunning sunsets, a heavenly spot to enjoy a glass of wine in the evening, whilst listening to the call of the resident tawny owl.

Hush! Don't tell anyone I said this!

Just spent a wonderful week here, an oasis of peace and tranquillity. The site is a credit to its owners who keep it looking perfect. There is plenty of space between pitches and the welcome board is a very nice touch. It is such a beautiful place I hesitate to recommend it in case we can't get a pitch in the future!

Lovely setting and well maintained.

We wanted a convenient site for a nearby family event in Bratoft. The site is very well maintained... Watching the varied bird life, particularly the young ducklings, kept us entertained better than TV. Would definitely use this CL again.

Willow Cottage is a magical place and its owners Karen & Bob are really lovely people who are always willing to help without being intrusive. The CL is beautifully maintained with a lawned area protected by a hedge-line with pitches in full sun for most of the day. The other side of the CL is given over to wildlife ponds and a woodland walk with pitches available on the edge of the pond. This is ideal for watching the family of resident ducks, moorhens and to our delight, two kingfishers. What a wonderful way to spend two hours over breakfast just watching two kingfishers flying over the pond catching fish. We mainly use CLs and this is the best one we have found. It is peaceful, relaxing, entertaining (the ducks!) and magical. Karen and Bob are wonderful hosts. The welcome board on arrival at the gate is a nice touch. The woodland walk leads up to a wooden gazebo called the "champagne bar" which looks out over the Lincolnshire countryside for guests to enjoy. Karen and Bob also open their own garden to the National Garden Scheme so all gardeners will appreciate the hard work and level of maintenance that they give to this CL. The local village provides all the amenities required. Coop, fuel, newspapers, bakery, butchers, takeaways and restaurants. We would recommend The Windmill Restaurant and Lakeside Bar & Restaurant. The only problem is going back to reality when you leave.

Great in all aspects

Well signed from main road, access good. The welcome notice was reassuring and so was that of owner and Chas and Dave (2 white ducks). Nice aspect and opening up the west side has maximised the light. Excellent value. OK for motorhomes as bus is available about 400 yds away.
