Spotlight on: Keal Lodge, Lincolnshire
With just 16 fully serviced pitches, Keal Lodge is a bijou, adults only site that’s perfect for a relaxing holiday.
The pitches are spacious, being spread out around grassy fields with trees dotted around the edges. The site gets the sun all day, and so these offer some welcome shade on a hot day!
It’s worth nothing that there are no toilet or kitchen facilities on the campsite, so you’ll need to use your own, but there are motorhome service points. There’s also a small shop at reception and a dog walking area. You can also hire a car.
Set in the heart of Lincolnshire, Keal Lodge makes an ideal base for exploring this county. The cathedral city of Lincoln is just over 40 miles away while The Wash National Nature Reserve is just 35 miles down the road. Keen to see the famous stripy cliffs at Hunstanton, we also drove here, which took around an hour.
The Georgian village of Deeping St James is a 10-minute walk from the campsite, and this is a pretty place dotted with stone cottages and a large church. You can also walk along the river Welland and stop for refreshments at The Waterton pub.
The main campsite is open from Easter until the end of October, but five of the pitches are Camping and Caravanning Club only, and these are open all year. The campsite also operates Border Caravan Storage next door, which is ideal if you fancy leaving your ’van here over the winter months.
