“Phil at Yellow Belly SUP was brilliant; I'm so pleased I booked a session with him while staying at Big Sky Hideaway. It was my first time doing SUP, along with my 10 year old son and 15 year old daughter. Phil catered for all of us, making it great fun while teaching us the basics. All four of us managed to stand up and get paddling within 15 minutes of being on the river, and the kids voted it the best part of our stay! The setting is beautiful and it's only a 20 minute cycle along the river (or a 5 min drive) from Big Sky Hideaway. All are keen to do it again, highly recommended!.”

“The flat and quiet back roads around Big Sky Hideaway make it perfect for family cycling. Nearby you'll find the Water Rail Way, a 33 mile cycle trail linking Lincoln to Boston. We enjoyed the beautiful 5 mile stretch along the river into Boston, treating ourselves to a delicious raspberry scone, cookie, coffee and a huge hot chocolate at the lovely Boston Lock Cafe. I understand there's also a nice cafe half way along by Anton Gower lock if you don't fancy the full distance. It was a great way to see the area and is right on the doorstep of the campsite!”

The Beach

The Lincolnshire coastline north of Skegness is a popular destination for our guests. Straight, sandy beaches and dunes invite a lovely Summer splash, and endless cafes and pubs make for a great day out.

Activities for kids

it depends what you like to do usually but on site we can introduce them to our chickens and we have alpaca feeding (as well as plenty of footballs and space to frolic). Off site the beach and Skegness (if you like a bit of arcade action!) is a popular target for some of our family guests.

www.arkwildlife.co.uk has gone down well with young kids too.
