Tattershall Lakes is a holiday park situated in the Lincolnshire countryside. The site is quite large and the accommodation is nestled within woodland or dotted around lakes. There are various types of accommodation on offer at Tattershall Lakes, from standard static caravans to luxury woodland lodges.  There are many ways to book a break at Tattershall Lakes, Hoseasons and Away Resorts being the lead booking sites but there are many private owners on the site so you can find some great deals by shopping around, I've even managed to find some on Booking.comWe stayed in an 8 berth caravan with hot tub that we managed to get as a last minute deal from a Facebook selling site.

What Accommodation Is Available At Tattershall Lakes? 

As our stay was a private holiday let we didn't need to check in at reception, we just drove to our accommodation and used the code given on our booking confirmation to access the caravan keys from the lock box situated next to the gate that leads to the veranda. Obviously booking via Facebook is a risk but we'd used this seller previously and knew that we could rely on them. If you would like accommodation that has a guaranteed standard and the capacity to file complaints if required then I'd book direct via Hoseasons or Away Resorts.

Once inside we were pleased to see a clean, fresh and modern caravan with a spacious corner sofa, small dining area and well equipped kitchen. Off the main living area were three bedrooms, a shower room and the boiler cupboard that housed a vacuum and cleaning equipment. The main double bedroom had an en-suite toilet as well as a large wardrobe and vanity area. Inside the wardrobe were extra pillows and quilts as well as a hair dryer. The other two bedrooms were small twin rooms with single beds, they didn't have much room in them but that wasn't an issue as we used them just for sleeping as most of the time spent at the caravan was spent in the living area or hot tub. 

Our caravan was located at Kingfisher Court which was in the centre of the park. There are a lot of caravans on this park and as our van was situated next to a pedestrian pathway we did get a lot of people walking by and I did feel overlooked when on the veranda. This wasn't an issue when in the hot tub though as that is set into the veranda meaning you can't really be seen by passers-by, a welcome thing in my case as I would have felt very self conscious being in a swimming costume in front of strangers. Despite being centrally located we didn't experience excessive levels of noise at any point during the day.

What Activities Can I Do At Tattershall Lakes?

Despite it's countryside location and woodland views this holiday destination is a hive of activity. There are a few bars and restaurants to choose from, an indoor pool, outdoor pool, arcades and several children's play areas. To enter these areas you need to purchase passes, we didn't have passes this time as we were only there for 2 nights and due to Covid-19 some aspects were closed and some needed booking in advance, also dining could only happen outside and it wasn't quite warm enough for that to be enjoyable. You can still have a a fun filled break without passes though.

Tattershall is famed for it's lakes and a lot of activities on the main water sports lake were going ahead in a covid compliant way. We had a go on the inflatable Aqua Park and it was so much fun. The staff were excellent in communicating the new covid compliancy rules and did so in a friendly manner.  All activities need to be booked in advance and you will be required to follow the safety procedures. We found that everyone taking part was respectful of the rules, respectful of social distancing and worked together to have a fun and safe experience. The Aqua Park session cost £20 per person and that included the use of wet suits and floatation devices. You need to be pretty fit to take part as hauling yourself out the water and back onto the inflatable takes some real effort. 

Not all the activities are so action packed, the site offers lots of children's activity classes such as pottery, mini archery and even a Nerf challenge. There are adult wellness classes such as parent and baby yoga and nordic walking and there is a spa on-site too. Unfortunately due to the current Covid restrictions we didn't take part in any classes and the spa was closed- as was most indoor activities. Though browsing through the catalogue I can see that the activities are very reasonably priced when you compare them to somewhere like centre parcs.

Does Tattershall Lakes Cater For Coeliacs?

Due to the current Covid 19 restrictions bars and restaurants were outdoor seating only and the weather didn't allow us to eat out. I'm hoping on future visits that we'll be able to eat out and try the on site catering facilities but from browsing the menus online I can see that they do offer a lot of gluten free options. 

Is Tattershall Lakes Safe To Visit During Covid 19 Pandemic?

From a Covid point of view the site has done all that it can to accommodate it's guests. Though we didn't use check in we noticed signs that said it was contactless and around the main reception area where the swimming pool and restaurants were we noticed lots of signage reminding people to wear masks, sanitise their hands and  keep a safe distance. The on site shop is very small and therefore had an outside queuing system in place that was well managed. As with all places at the minute there will be people that feel the rules don't apply to them but we didn't come across much of it at Tattershall with most people behaving in Covid secure ways.

Would I Go Back To Tattershall Lakes? 

Yes, absolutely. We're lucky that Tattershall Lakes is only an hour from our home so if a discounted break pops up it's relatively easy for us to pack up and go. Tattershall is a great place to visit if you're a larger family, there are lots of accommodation options so you can all to stay together. This also makes it a great place for group holidays when they are allowed again. I wouldn't really recommend Tattershall to couples looking for a romantic getaway but for families this place is perfect. There are lots of activities to do that are suitable for all age groups and the seaside town of Skegness is only an hour away if your holiday isn't complete without fish and chips, donkey rides and ice cream. There is also a fantastic little farm nearby that is great fun for younger children. We visited there in 2019 and it was brilliant fun. 

2021 is tipped to be the year of the UK break and if it's an affordable, fun filled break you're after then Tattershall is the place for you.
