Shepherd's Huts in Lincolnshire Wolds AONB guide

Overview

The Lincolnshire Wolds make up a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Lincolnshire. The region contains some of the most unspoilt countryside in the East Midlands, with rolling hills and valleys and clean streams, as well as pretty old villages. The woodlands, grasslands, and abandoned chalk pits provide important habitats for flora and fauna, particularly birds. Campers have many options throughout the Lincolnshire Wolds, either in the villages or in more natural settings. The area is especially popular for its walking, cycling, and horse-riding trails, with campsites good bases for outdoor exploration.

Where to go

Louth

On the eastern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, historic Louth is full of Victorian and Georgian architecture. Louth is also especially renowned as a foodie haven, with markets and specialist butcher’s and cheese shops gaining a nationwide reputation–ideal for self-catering campers. Louth is near the popular local park Hubbard’s Hills, formed over 40,000 years ago by a glacial overspill channel. Campers have several options around the town, including pod camping and caravan parks.

Alford

If you’re looking for charming old thatched cottages, head directly to Alford, in the south east of the Lincolnshire Wolds and also very near the coast. It’s a market town and a good place to stock up on fresh produce for your camping adventures. There are several places to pitch a tent or park your caravan or motorhome, and thatched cottages that have been converted into holiday homes are also available–a particularly good option outside of the warmer summer months.

Caistor

In the north of the Lincolnshire Wolds, ancient Caistor has Roman and Viking history. It sees a lot of walkers passing through as it’s on the Viking Way, a 147-mile walk that starts on the banks of Lincolnshire’s Humber River and continues all the way to Rutland Water, east of Leicester. There are a lot of camping and other accommodation options at the Caistor Lakes Leisure Park, as well as an abundance of fish in the reservoirs here.

Skegness

While not in the Lincolnshire Wolds, the popular Lincolnshire Coast resort town of Skegness is just a short drive to the south-east. Campers who want to be near the beach can camp at caravan parks in Skegness and visit the wolds on a day trip. There are many family-friendly camping options here, from farm parks and holiday parks to cabins and basic tent sites.
