The site is located between the villages of Owersby Moor and Claxby Moor next to the A46, approximately 4.5 miles north of the town of Market Rasen, 20 miles from Gainsborough and 23 miles from Lincoln.
Wold View was initially developed into one of the country's premier commercial fisheries. The current owners have developed the holiday accommodation with the addition of high specification holiday lodges, with significant potential for further development (see planning and development).
11 luxury open plan holiday lodges were erected in 2018 and 2019 along the western boundary, accessed over a tarmac road with individual tarmac car parking areas.
All units are raised and positioned overlooking the lakes and the Lincolnshire Wolds beyond, with a perimeter decking area and hot tub to the side (excluding lodge no. 5).
The units comprise the following accommodation:
4 x Glen Mhor 3 bedroom lodges and 7 x Glen Mhor 2 bedroom lodges. (Floor Plans available from the agents). Constructed from a plastic composite, the units are designed to minimise maintenance.
In addition to the cabins is a 7-pitch touring caravan site.
