Hartsholme Country Park
“Featuring woodland, heathland, meadows and lakes” - VisitEngland Assessor
Our Inspector's view
Hartsholme Camp site is a small Touring Park located only 3 miles from the cathedral City of Lincoln. The site is open between March and October and also has a special opening to coincide with Lincoln’s Christmas Market. The camp site benefits from being located within Hartsholme Country Park, a popular Green Flag Award winning park. Featuring woodland, heathland, meadows and lakes there are 250 acres of wonderful wildlife habits to explore. We are sure you’ll agree the perfect choice for the whole family to relax and unwind. A Country Park since 1974 the site comprises Victorian landscaped gardens, a large reservoir, woodlands and grasslands. Many features, both natural and built, survive from the original landscaping of Hartsholme Hall in the 1860s. Wildlife highlights include many water birds that have made their home on Hartsholme Lake, over 80 different species of tree and over 400 species of fungi. All three species of woodpecker that are found in Britain: Great spotted, Lesser spotted and Green Woodpecker can be found in the park. Whatever your age, interests or abilities, Hartsholme Country Park has something to offer you: Fun in the children’s play area, exercise around the orienteering course or a gentle stroll around the scenic grounds. Once you’ve finished exploring you can enjoy refreshments at the café, or learn more about the site in our Visitor Centre. The site is managed by the City of Lincoln Council’s Park Ranger service. Park Rangers are responsible for all physical site management work, organising the interpretation and activity programme, the volunteer programme as well as managing visitor demands. Park Rangers are based at Visitor Centre, Hartsholme Country Park and are available daily to provide assistance and advice to visitors.

About the area
Much of the fenland around the Wash has been drained of its marshes and reclaimed as highly productive farmland. Further north, the coastline, with its sandy beaches, has been developed to accommodate the holiday industry, with caravans, campsites and the usual seaside paraphernalia. The main resorts are Skegness, Mablethorpe, Cleethorpes and Ingoldmells. Inland, the chalky margin of the Lincolnshire Wolds offers an undulating landscape of hills and valleys, designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Lincoln, the county town, is dominated by its magnificent cathedral. Most of interest in the city is in the uphill area, Steep Hill, ascending from the River Witham; the Bailgate spanned by the Newport Arch, and the Minster Yard with its medieval and Georgian architecture. Boston, on the banks of Witham, was England’s second biggest seaport in the 13th and 14th centuries, when the wool trade was at its height. There are market towns all over the county still holding weekly markets, including Barton-upon-Humber, Boston, Bourne, Brigg, Crowland, Gainsborough, Grantham, Great Grimsby, Holbeach, Horncastle, Long Sutton, Louth, Market Rasen, Scunthorpe, Sleaford, Spalding (the centre of the flower industry), and the elegant Edwardian spa resort of Woodhall Spa.
