Organic farm-based, off-grid camping with individual campfires. 

Proper off-grid camping vs. the bells and whistles of the holiday park? We know which side of the guyrope we stand on but for campsite owners, pleasing both the pitch up purists and the caravan contingent can be a tricky balancing act. So what's the answer? Well, Carolyn Edwards, the resourceful brains behind New Farm Holidays, set up two stunningly-located sites offering something for all parties.  

Tucked away within the 30 acre Ostler's Wood in deepest rural Lincolnshire, New Farm Holidays awaits those looking to really get-away-from-it-all. The first site, catering for tent and timber pods, is an off-grid, tourer-free zone, while its sister site (6 miles coastwards) offers easy access, electrical hook-ups and even an Indian takeaway that delivers to your door. 

For the campers, a secluded, pondside woodland clearing provides a peaceful sunspot and space for just two privileged tents, two pods and a glamping bell tent. Two further spacious tent pitches are available in the fields overlooking the rolling Lincolnshire countryside. 

The camping pods and bell tent offer a hassle-free camping option.  The pods have a solar panel which enables USB device charges and LED lighting. If you prefer to travel light, the Mighty Oak package provides all the crockery, cutlery, utensils and saucepans you need for an additional tenner. You can even enjoy a home-cooked meal of farm-reared produce delivered direct to your tent or pod door courtesy of wonderful host Carolyn. And with no electricity or lighting you'll be in for some serious star gazing, which you can enjoy as you warm yourself next to your own personal firepit. 

The 1000 acre farm has been in the family since the 1700s, becoming certified organic in 1988, and producing organic cereals, vegetables and beef. You can see the farm at work by following the footpath that runs through the farmyard and there are lots of woodland walks to explore. You can also try your hand at falconry with the Hawk Walk, taking a stroll through Ostlers Woods while the Harris Hawks follow, flying gracefully through the trees above.

The historic town of Boston lies just down the road. The town's St Botolph's church (affectionately known as The Stump) is said to have the highest non-cathedral tower in the world and anyone with a head for heights should scale the 365 steps and enjoy the view at the top. 

With a rich cultural history, vast areas of unspoilt natural beauty and some classic English seaside resorts a short distance away, there's lots to fill your time here. But back at site, New Farm Holidays offers you the chance to enjoy the ultimate in escapism and the opportunity to take life a little more slowly.

The Owner Says

(info supplied by the campsite)

At New Farm we are passionate about our little corner of Lincolnshire and we’d be delighted to share it with you.

Our campsite is off the grid and the beaten track, set within a 30 acre woodland.  Our two camping pods, glamping bell tent and a single tent pitch are next to the wildlife pond. The remaining tent pitches are in the open field with views out towards the Wolds.  A true rural retreat!

We have a hot shower, flushing loos and a dishwashing area.

We love a campfire!  Each pitch has its own campfire pit.  At booking you have the option to purchase logs for your campfire and these will be delivered prior to your arrival.  We’ve enjoyed many an evening around the campfire with a beer or glass of wine and believe a campfire makes a camping trip.

The camping pods have plenty of head room, even for the tall folks with French doors out onto the decking.  They comfortably sleep two to four people. The pods have power provided by a solar panel.  These panels supply mobile device charging for USB connections and LED lights.  There is a camping grill provided so that you can use the individual campfire to its best.

The 5 metre glamping bell tent is furnished for your comfort!  There is a double bed and two roll out mattresses.  The tea light chandelier and fairy lights provide a magical feel while the wood burning stove takes the chill off the colder evenings.  Cooking equipment and crockery is all provided for you.  Turn up and settle in!

New Farm Holidays are happy to provide exclusive use of the site for your personal event or celebration.  We have a shopping basket of options ranging from leaving you to your own devices through to hiring in additional accommodation and organising events like clay pigeon shooting and falconry. 

As a team we look forward to welcoming you. 

Best regards

Carolyn

Summer getaway

We booked a 3 night camping stay (after about 10 years of not camping!) and had the most wonderful time. A truly magical place, even the walk through the woods to the loo was a delight! We loved being able to have a campfire, walking through the woods, walking out to Medlam Drain to watch the sunset.  We were visited by "the boys"  In the morning munching grass and fluttering their eyelashes, we were visited by the barn owl quartering the field at dusk and disturbed a little owl in the barn when walking along Medlam Drain.

The toilets and shower were absolutely fine, head torches useful for night time visits, washing up in the woods...amazing, the hot water a nice touch.

I'm sure we will be back! 

Thank you Carolyn and the New Farm Holidays team.
