Introduction

Woodhall Country Park is a five star holiday park set in a beautiful area of woodland in the heart of Lincolnshire.  The village centre of Woodhall Spa is 1 mile away, making Woodhall Country Park an ideal place for a short break or holiday.

Located in 80 acres of wood and parkland, the site is largely located on flat ground.  Woodhall Country Park caters for tents and touring caravans, and has camping pods and luxury lodges available for holiday lets.

There are three toilet and shower blocks each with an access room in each, specifically suitable for guests with access requirements. They are all level access with no steps or ramps and are located adjacent to all the main facilities.  Woodhall Country Park has wheelchair accessible toilets and washing facilities, which include a level entry shower and handrails.
