If you want somewhere to pitch on your motorhome, camping and caravan holidays in Lincolnshire, how about Tattershall Lakes Country Park?

This is a beautiful holiday park in the heart of Lincolnshire – and it's not just for those who bring their own accommodation. Indeed, you can choose from a range of accommodation, with holiday lodges, static caravans, wild camping and glamping available, as well as there being space for guests bringing their own motorhomes, campervans, tents and touring caravans.

For campers, motorcaravanners and caravanners there are two main camping areas, with standard pitches and serviced electric pitches available. Seasonal pitches are available for guests looking to stay at the park throughout the year.

The facilities at this campsite include shower and toilet blocks, waste disposal points, waste water points, a laundrette and washing up areas. Wide and open spaces and woodland are great for children and family pets to run about in, while there is also a play area for little ones to enjoy. A useful on-site shop ensures guests can pick up their essential groceries and don’t need to leave the site to stock up.

The fun doesn’t stop there, with plenty to do for the whole family around the rest of the park. There are heated swimming pools, a gym and an 18-hole golf course that welcomes beginners as well as experienced, low handicap players. Spa treatments are available at the park for those wishing to indulge and pamper themselves, while there is also an outdoor cinema.

As the campsite's name suggests, it also has numerous lakes that are perfect for fishing, with many guests attracted to this park for this very reason. Fishing competitions take place throughout the year, while those looking to compete can enjoy well attended snooker and golf competitions, too. The lakes just aren’t for fishing, either, with waterskiing and pedalo riding along the many other activities you can enjoy if you've chosen to spend your holidays here.

Tattershall Lakes Country Park also has a bar and diner, so you can take a night off cooking – and washing up! – plus live entertainment is provided most evenings. In the nearby villages there are plenty of lovely places to eat and drink, if you'd like a change of scenery.

Bike hire is available from the park, with the track from Lincoln to Boston passing close by for those looking to get out and explore. The track is quiet and generally runs through woodland. The beautiful county village of Woodhall Spa is also close by (about four miles away), and is a great place to visit on two wheels.

If you've got a car and you want to get out and about, there are plenty of things to do in Lincolnshire. Visit Lincoln, a cathedral city and a great place for some retail therapy – it is about a 40-minute drive from this campsite. Or how about Boston? It's only a 30-minute drive from Tattershall Lakes Country Park. If you choose to visit Boston, make sure you take in St Botolph's Church, which is the largest parish church in England – it is an impressive site and has a very tall tower.

You might also like to enjoy some time beside the seaside. And as Skegness, a classic, British seaside town, is less than 50 minutes by car from this holiday park, it's a great place to do just that on your camping and caravan holidays.

There is so much to see and do...

If you want to get up, out and about, you couldn’t have picked a better county to explore. Lincolnshire has a wealth of diverse attractions to tickle the fancy of a wide range of visitors, whether young or old.

If climbing, canoeing, quad-biking, cycling, paint-balling and theme parks sound too energetic, you can soak up some history at a slower pace.

Firstly, Lincoln Castle, built in the 11th century: walk the castle walls, visit the Victorian prison…and nearby is Lincoln Cathedral, where you can visit the "Young Victoria" exhibition or play the game of looking for the naughty Lincoln Imp, within the beautiful carved walls of the Angel Choir.

The National Trust property Tattershall Castle offers the chance to visit a dramatic 15th century tower with a moat, while the romantic Belvoir Castle is set in rolling countryside and home to the Duke and Duchess of Rutland. A pub lunch in one of the villages nearby makes for a perfect please-everybody excursion.

For more incredible architecture, 17th century Belton House in Grantham and the Elizabethan mansion of Burghley House at Stamford are both must-sees.

From stone castles to sand castles – during the summer, why not travel to one of our famous seaside resorts? There’s the classic candyfloss and amusements of Skegness or Cleethorpes, or quieter picnicking spots like Sutton-on-Sea.

South of ‘Skeggy’ is Gibraltar Point, a renowned nature reserve, teeming with birdlife. In a northerly direction from North Somercotes there is Donna Nook nature reserve, a breeding ground for seals which is open to the public.

To Start - The holiday park at Tattershall on the face of it looks good. But it is very expensive, the top field for tourers are crammed together like sardines with no organisation as to where pitches are or who is entitled to what pitch. The noise from the RAF Base is something else. Now I lived in Germany for 4 years and I was used to large jest flying over the married quarters. Phantoms and Lightning’s. REAL noisy jets. So I was used to the noise they make, or so I thought. The jets started taking off at 1000hrs every day Monday to Friday and went on till 1800hrs at night. I mean literally all day the jets where making practice abort Landing and Take offs and getting in to the air right over the caravan site. Their afterburners on just as they took off. The noise was truly appalling. By Wednesday we had enough as the noise was starting t get us down. I knew of the RAF Base, I knew what noise jets make what I did not know and what they don't advertise is that the noise is continuous for 8 hours a day except for Pilot NAFFI breaks.

Tattershall although advertises that tourers are welcome is more a static site. Take one look in the shop and there is nothing on sale for caravaners. No parts or bits and bobs that a caravaner would need if he runs out hose, plugs, fuses the likes. Tourers to Tattershall are cash cows to spend their money in a very expensive complex. For example, I went with my son for a game of crazy golf. The sign said £3 per game and if in a group a £5 deposit was required. So I walked up to the cabin and stuck my hand out with my £3 in it and asked for a game and was told that it would be £11 as they required £5 deposit. I am still working out how 2 people constitute a group. I am 63 years old for God’s sake what did he think I was going to do with the golf stick in a totally fenced off crazy golf course. £11 just to have a game of crazy golf with my son. No I did not pay it and No I would not go back or recommend it to anyone.

The Amenities are basic.

The showers have no seats in them and there is a shelf that is about 6 foot up the wall. How children manage is beyond me. I am 63 and have trouble with me knees and spine no seat made taking a shower a truly painful experience.

The meals are expensive and the entertainment when we where there is more of a 60's workingman’s club type with bingo that is hard to hear for the kids then when that is finished it just kid’s entertainment that is on. Only one night was there a turn on and he was upstairs in the lounge.

The first night there I was getting a wash in the washroom when a couple of kids came in and started washing dog poo of their trainers in one of the “3” sinks. Now with no cleaning done through the night god only knows who used that sink for cleaning their teeth in before it was cleaned.

If you go to Tattersall ONLY GO AT WEEKENDS when the RAF base is closed that is unless they have an air show on. Take plenty of money if you have kids (the number of parents explaining to kids that they could not afford things was saddening). Don’t expect great tourer treatment as they are geared for static members.

Last word.

If you are called Smith and you arrive on the site and the reception on the field asks your name and you say Smith and he walks off to get your paperwork and you just know he is going to come back with the wrong Smith because he omitted to ask one vital question (the first name) then you know you need to get off that site very smartly. No organisation whatsoever.

i visited the camp site my first experience with my two boys,
i am a single parent and wanted a site that would provide all facilities, we were very excited when the very nice booking in lady said she had room for us at late notice on a bank holiday, we had a lovely time setting up ,found the facilities to be very clean and the boys enjoyed the bouncy castle and we had a lovely walk around the lake, however there was no access to the playarea as this is broken, the shop has minimal on offer { i would take a barbecue next time)
but like the previous review there was partyinig going on until 4.30am it was like setting up my tent in a night club, there was also some aggressive behaviour from neighbouring campers car alarms were being set of etc it made what could have been a lovely break into a nightmare.

4.0 stars

This beautiful country park situated in woods and lakes in the heart of Lincolnshire covers approximately 360 acres, and features four lakes offering coarse fishing and various water sports.

A large well furnished entertainment centre overlooking a large lake, caters for family entertainment and a café serving the best bacon sandwiches is adjacent to the club. Water skiing lessons are available at this approved RYA test centre but if you want a fun day out speed boat, ringo and banana boat rides are available. If you feel energetic peddaloes, bikes and canoes can be hired on an hourly basis. Children are well catered for with an outdoor play area for children under 12.

The multi-service pitches include fresh water, electric hook-up and a choice of hard-standing or grass. All the usual amenities are provided including centrally heated toilet block, hot showers, pot wash and a disabled suite.

Nearby is the market town of Horncastle packed with antique shops and has gained a reputation for books, offering three independent second-hand bookshops.

This site is in a good location with good facilities, especially the excellent shower and toilet block. I have two small children and the tent field is set in a good location with accessibility to all facilities. The only disappointment during our stay was a large group of campers who were not prevented by the site security from partying with loud music till 4.30 am. Perhaps some guidelines when you book could prevent this.
