We went to Low Farm as a group of four families, with eight adults and nine children. There are some very mixed reviews on here so didn't have high expectations. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and told where to pitch. We were on the front field, which couldn't have been a more delightful or perfect spot! We were the only ones on the field, apart from a small group of two tents who camped in the orchard. We had nine children between us, and they had the run of the entire field. There was a shallow stream running along the length of the front field, which didn't cause us any problems, even though we had children ranging from 11mths to 6 years.

Facilities were not all singing and dancing but they were very clean, well stocked and everything worked. Yes, some of the walls may have benefited from a lick of paint, but it kind of added to the charm! I didn't feel that any of the tiredness that has been mentioned in other reviews detracted from the amenities or the site at all. The owners were lovely, site was beautiful and the facilities more than adequate. Although I didn't have a shower as we only stayed for 2 nights, they were very clean and I would happily have showered there. There were washing up facilities, washing and drying machine and a hair dryer in the main toilets. On the Saturday morning, the owners put on a beautiful spread of various cakes and tea, coffee etc, all of which were free. It was a lovely idea and nice to meet others on the site and also an opportunity to peruse the various camping and caravanning things they had on sale. They had also gone to the effort of providing lollipops, cupcakes and squash for children, again all free. They had a collection tin to take any donations, raising money for a charity that was very dear to their hearts.

There were no pigeons that we saw or rabbits, but we did see swifts, swallows, red kites and various other beautiful birds that you would associate with being in the country! A joy to watch and hear. Oh and the local tawny owl who regularly serenaded us along with the resident song thrushes!

As for the village of Folkingham, ( the high street was literally a two minute walk from the campsite) what a quaint and beautiful village. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming, including the residents. Cannot speak more highly of Quaintways tea rooms and restaurant, who gallantly provided a three course meal for our party of 17 and not only was each course beautifully cooked but the staff couldn't have been more helpful or accommodating! Also recommend Henleys chocolate shop, where not only can you buy beautiful chocolates, but you can also see them being made!

We were going to venture out to Belton House, but the campsite was too beautiful and we were all having too nice a time and so spent the entire weekend on the campsite. We have all made a unanimous decision to come back next year! Thank you Low Farm and Folkingham for a truly perfect weekend.

Nice friendly owners suggested we fill up the water tanks from the entrance before entering the site we choose this one at the time because it had a washing machine/dryer and needed some clothes doing only stayed 2 days but to be honest 17. 50 p/n was a bit steep I think the site is more geared towards tents/caravans as there was a grey water disposal but it was walled in with a meter high wall which meant I could not empty our grey water because the gravity would not go over the wall which was a tad annoying other than that it was quiet at night and the birds where the only 'noise'. Would I go again. No not at the price I think 12-14 would be more like it.

Turned up for our first outing in the new tent. Someone was there to show us on the map where we could go, easy pitch, not stoney and electric hook up.

Nice base for a couple of walks we has researched earlier in the day, with our 3 dogs. Quiet and pleasant evening with a tent cooked meal and a bottle of wine!

Showers and toilets basic but perfectly adequate and clean.

Not sure why people are mentioning pigeons, but there are quite a few, and rabbits etc. It is the country side after all!

Quite a basic site. On arrival the owner was out. There is a sign instructing you to find a pitch and pay later. We really wanted a hardstanding but the only two not in use had cones on them saying they were reserved. We only wanted one night and the pitches were reserved for someone not even arriving until later in the week. As there was no one to ask if we could use one of these pitches just for the night we decided to find the most level grass pitch we could. This site is very sloping and the grass in wet weather is not really suitable for motorhomes. Eventually, the owner came back and we were able to swap to a hardstanding, much better. The toilets and showers are very basic and reasonably clean. Although, the next morning every surface in the toilet/shower block was coated in dead flies.

The nearest and only pub in the village is not dog friendly and doesn't appear to be too hot on food so a pub meal would be a drive away from the site.

This is a pleasant well drained level site with well spaced grass pitches. Toilet block is clean but could maybe do with up dating a little. However it is still acceptable. The park is well laid out and the position is such that it is within the village of Folkingham and shops and pub are all within easy walking distance Pitches are grass it is well cared for and there are some nice walks from the site. There isnt a playground for children but plenty of grass and open space There is a separate field for tents The owners are friendly and you leave with the feeling of wanting to come back again

Arrived on a very windy day and found there is a huge Leylandii hedge which really helped to shelter our not very aerodynamic tent. Extra guylines fitted, it didn't look as if it was going to blow away! And it didn't.

The site was very quiet in both senses of the word, apart from the wind and the cooing of pigeons in the hedge, there was little other noise. The field was fairly full of caravans but only a few seemed to have people in. It is very rural, with fields of spotted sheep all around.

The field is very well maintained and the facilities are excellent, huge shower cubicles, lots of hot water. Plenty of washing-up space, one indoors.

The owners were friendly and helpful, and there's an information room and toilets near the house as well as info in the washrooms.

The village is very historic, look out for the houses with moustaches, the workhouse and the house of correction! The church has some great gargoyles. There is a shop in the village which is useful but expensive.

Belton House and Woolsthorpe Manor are not far away and well worth a visit, as is Stamford. The Art Centre is recommended for coffee or lunch.

We're planning to come back with our bicycles, it looks like super cycling country round here.
