Sunflower Park, near Laughton, Gainsborough
Hidden along a woodland road in the Lincolnshire countryside, Sunflower Park is a gem that we are over the moon to have discovered.
Sunflower Park, East Ferry Road, Laughton, Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, DN21 3QF
We’ve never stayed anywhere quite like Sunflower Park, and now we’ve found it we can’t wait to go back.
The campsite caught our eye with its wonderful rescue animals and location next to woodlands on the boundary of Laughton Forestry Commission.
The site is relatively small compared to your average campsite, but this is not an average campsite. Its five acres packs in a great deal.
It has just a handful of generous caravan pitches, some with electric hook up, and plenty of space for free camping. With a fishing lake for residents, a field for grazing donkeys, sheep and goats plus a farmyard with pigs, alpacas, hilarious free-roaming chickens, cockerels and turkeys, it feels plentiful in size. The friendly owner’s welcome guests to carefully enjoy the animals close up.
The park is a lovely spot for families with children. There’s a play area that’s well looked after and green spaces and woodland. It gets a big thumbs up from us.
The facilities are great. Clean toilets and showers close to the caravan pitches and a rustic undercover picnic area, with a food kiosk serving cooked breakfasts.
The on-site shop is a little gem too. Everything is fairly priced and you can find all the essentials with some real treats too… cast iron chickens, bird boxes and fire pits to take home.
Sunflower Park is close to the small village of Laughton and only 6 miles from the bustling Lincolnshire town of Gainsborough, if you did want to venture somewhere closeby.

When is Sunflower Park open?
Why so special?
The animals. It’s on the edge of Laughton Forestry Commission and feels removed the noise of daily life.
The owners. They are friendly and super helpful, and it’s all credit to them that the site is almost booked up for summer 2020!!
We are a family of four, travelling around the UK in our caravan. Seeking hidden gems and special places. Learning to be more eco-conscious along the way.
