Delph Bank Touring Caravan Park Holbeach, Lincolnshire, Central North England, PE12 8LL (Location map)
20th March to 31st October
Delph Bank Touring Caravan Park in Holbeach, Lincolnshire, is an adults only park located just 11 miles from the market town of Spalding in the county's South Holland district. The park's season runs from March to November.
This immaculate little site has 45 touring pitches, 24 of which are hardstanding,. The washblock is kept spotless and the flowerbeds are as neat as a pin. The superb facilities include 16A electric hook-up, a heated washblock, facilities for the disabled, a motorhome waste-water disposal point, an information centre, Wi-Fi access and a dog walk. Pitches are a generous size with plenty of room to manoeuvre. Access is via a long drive and there is a security barrier. The site's very helpful owners, Kevin and Kay, live on the site.
There are a number of amenities within easy walking distance of Delph Bank, including one pub and a Chinese restaurant. For those who want to leave the car or motorhome behind for the day the site is very close to a bus route for buses that will take you to King's Lynn in Norfolk ( a half-hour drive) or in the opposite direction to Spalding.
Book Delph Bank for one night only stopovers, if you en route to somewhere else in the UK, but if you are looking to explore Lincolnshire, the east coast and north Norfolk it also makes a great base.
Holbeach is the nearest market town, which is a short walk away, while larger locations such as Spalding, which features the large Springfields Shopping Outlet, and King’s Lynn are within a half-hour's drive. From Spalding's Springfields Shopping Outlet you can catch a water taxi into Spalding proper.
Walkers and cyclists should check out the coastline along the north of East Anglia, which is filled with many small, secluded beaches in addition to having some great walking routes, including the long-distance path, the Peter Scott Walk, which takes you along the Wash. Don't forget your binoculars for a spot of birdwatching.
If you love visiting castles and gardens, the royal estate of Sandringham in Norfolk is just a 40-minute drive from Delph Bank, Grimsthorpe Castle at Bourne is a 50-minute drive and Burghley House near Stamford is less than an hour. Stamford itself is a lovely town to visit; pop into the George Inn for lunch.
Slightly further afield, just over an hour's drive, is the city of Lincoln. The city is a beautiful place to visit and among its attractions are Lincoln Castle and the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral, which is home to one of the four copies of the Magna Carta still in existence.
Lincolnshire is, of course, famous for its wartime airfields. There are two aircraft museums that will evoke all the atmosphere of those airfields during the war years: the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre at Spilsby (50 minutes' drive) and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Centre at Conningsby (45 minutes' drive). After absorbing all that history you will welcome the peace and tranquility of the adults-only refuge at Delph Bank in Holbeach. It's the ideal spot to relax after a day's sightseeing.
Ayscoughfee Hall Museum & Gardens, African Violet Centre, Baytree Garden & Owl Centre, Moulton Award Winning Windmill, Gordon Boswell Romany Museum, Peter Scott Walk, Pinchbeck Engine & Land Drainage Museum are all nearby.
Other attractions include Boston Wash Banks, Flag Fen Bronze Age Centre, Spalding Bulb Museum.
The nature of the Fens makes it excellent cycling and walking country.

On arrival, we were greeted by neatly cut grass, and tubs of colourful flowers. We were directed to our pitch, and told where the drinking water, rubbish and recycling bins were located. The amenities block was very modern with ultra modern wet rooms/showers, soap dispensers, etc. The owners regularly collected the rubbish and recycling bins, and ensured that the dog walk, grounds and amenities block, were kept clean and tidy. A short walk from the site were two pubs, both serving food, (though you need to check if you want food in the evenings, (neither served on Sunday or Monday nights). There was also a chinese restaurant not too far away. It was so relaxing,and such pleasant surroundings, that we decided to stay for an extra night.

A warm welcome from the owners, Jennifer and Michael, on our arrival and Jenifer showed us to our pitch. The site was tranquil the whole time we were there, the loudest noise was from the birds singing in the trees. The amenities were brand new, spotless, cleaned thoroughly each day. Our fully serviced pitch was a godsend; the site is environmentally friendly and support recycling. Out two dogs were welcomed on the site and were priveliged to use a well kept 'dog walk' for their own needs. The site is in a small village but there is so much to see and do in the area we didnt get much time for the spending it with the locals. There are many small towns nearby for stocking up on groceries or many places to eat in or take away within a small drive from the site. The local garden centre and coffee shop is worth a visit. We would definitely stay again at this site and recommend it for couples whether young or old. Delph Bank Touring Caravan Park Exclusively for Adults, Spalding, Lincolnshire
