Hello...my name is Anne.

Welcome to Wild at Heart Garden.   I hope you enjoy reading our story.   

 

About us...

The five acre nature garden is set in rural Lincolnshire.  
We have lived here for 48 years.

It is a 'retired' agricultural small holding which we have made into a nature reserve over 35 years encouraging a variety of wildlife...birds, bees and butterflies are everywhere in this haven.

Buzzards fly over our garden and foxes are regular visitors.   Sometimes the Roe deer come here across the fields.    

2000 native trees and shrubs have been planted from 1984 and many are now mature making shady woodland areas.   There is a 3 acre wild meadow with mature trees, mown tracks and larger mown areas where the tent pitches are situated.

A new wildlife pond is being constructed surrounded by a wildflower border. 

This is a garden for nature lovers and those looking for a quiet place to stay on an adult-only campsite 'in the wild'.

 

What we offer you...


Adults over 18 only  - maximum  2 adults per pitch  -   Single campers welcomed.

Two large grass non-electric  pitches...Holly and Dixie...with mains water and each with a private tent with a portable flush toilet and hand basin.   (Showers/wash up facilities are available on these two pitches to hire separately).

There is another pitch nearby named 'Fox' which is available for relaxation and 'simple camping' with mains water and toilet but no shower.    Enough space for 2 tents and four adults can share this pitch.

We welcome motorcycles, trikes and pedal cycles and they can be parked near the pitches in dry weather.   2-4 cars can be parked a short walk from the pitches.

Situated off the main roads down a country lane, the site is 6 miles north west of Lincoln.   This secluded wild garden will suit adult campers looking for a peaceful place to stay in a rural area but close to shops and eating in the nearby villages. The nearest village is 2 miles.

Well behaved dogs on a lead are allowed, please respect the wildlife.     Please, no loud music.   Quiet times 10.30 until 8.30 am.   Raised gas bbq grills on a table are allowed but please, no open fires or charcoal during a drought as farm crops are nearby.    We prefer this to be a no smoking campsite for safety.  

WILD AT HEART GARDEN IS A 28 DAY 'POP-UP CAMPSITE' WITH LIMITED DATES TO OPEN.

The garden is re-wilded to give wildlife the environment they like.

A mown area for relaxing on the west boundary has views across the neighbouring arable fields towards the Trent Valley.    

There are wonderful sunsets to see from here.

 Below are more photos of our wild garden.  

 Grasses and wild flowers mingle happily together.   Mown tracks meander through meadow and woodland.

This is a place primarily for wildlife so we like fallen leaves and branches.
Squirrels bury acorns and hazelnuts which often grow, increasing our tree planting. 

Log piles are all over our wild garden.  They are left to gently rot down providing a home for wildlife.   The Birch trees are host to autumn fungi.
