Richard and Sue welcome you to Hillcrest - our family home since 1995. We have been developing our Caravan and Camping Club Certificated Site for your enjoyment. We have a rally field (Beyond the fence) which doubles as an area for football and dogwalking, well away from campers and caravans. Wi-fi is included in your pitch fee.
Hillcrest in days gone by was a working farm and owned much of the surrounding land. Gradually over the years bits of land were sold off and the property became a domestic dwelling rather than agricultural. We purchased the property 20 years ago and have renovated it to its current state.
Being well out of the village we are lucky to have a wide variety of wildlife including foxes (hence why our hens are kept in a run), badgers, bats and deer. Bird life here is prevalent with buzzards, herons, owls, woodpeckers etc. At one time we were lucky enough to have a badger create a set in our garden but they can be frequently seen along the railway or bumbling along the road. The Cleethorpes to Barton line runs along the back of our property. There are stations at Thornton Abbey & Ulceby, both being quite close by.
Grimsby and Brigg are about 20 minutes away. Grimsby has
a good retail precinct plus a Large Tesco, Asda and Morrisons.
Aldi is on the Cleethorpes Road and a much larger Tesco is at
Humberston a short distance away. The Mariners or Grimsby
Town is the local football team there. There is a Leisure Centre
at Grimsby and a further one at Cleethorpes. There is Bowling,
Cinema and Pleasure Island Theme Park at Cleethorpes.
Grimsby Auditorium holds concerts and shows.
We are happy to assist you with any bookings during your stay.
Brigg also has a Leisure Centre, supermarkets and the
occasional Farmers Market.
Barton On Humber is a small town just this side of The Humber Bridge. There is a Tesco and Lidl, Library, shopping and a Leisure Centre. The Ropewalk Gallery is a great place to visit along with The Far Ings Nature Reserve.
Hull is easily accessible (about 30 mins) via The Humber Bridge and a must if you visit Hull is The Deep. Again shopping, KC Stadium – Hull Tigers and everything that you would expect from a City of this size.
Lincoln is about an hour away and well worth a visit. The must see places for me at the Cathedral and Lincoln Castle – always fascinating. The Bailgate area has some lovely unique shops leading onto Steep Hill. There is an excellent shopping area around the main street, Lincoln City at Sincil Bank is the place to be for football.
Scunthorpe has The Baths Hall for shows and concerts. Recently renovated this venue has a wide variety of shows and acts available with something to suit most tastes. Shopping together with Scunthorpe and Ashby Markets are popular. Scunthorpe United are the local team plus there are Speedway events held regularly.
The Lincolnshire Wolds are about 30 minutes away and completely blow the myth away that Lincolnshire is flat. A must visit is The Ramblers Church at Walesby (my family home) whilst in the area Market Rasen has an excellent Race Course.
York, Scarborough, Filey and Bridlington are further afield but well worth a visit Skegness and Mablethorpe are also within easy striking distance.
