Tattershall Lakes is a country park in Lincolnshire, owned by Away Resorts. Set in over 300 acres, this lakeside park is ideal for babies and toddlers who’ll love the beach, splash park, indoor swimming pool, playground and jam packed activity and entertainment schedule.
In this article I’m going to tell you all about Tattershall Lakes for babies and toddlers, and share some exciting information about Away Resort’s new TriBeCa style caravans!
Where Is Tattershall Lakes?
Tattershall Lakes is located in the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside surrounded by farms, market towns and only 40 minutes away from the seaside resort of Skegness. The National Trust’s Tattershall Castle is next door, as is RAF Coningsby, which is the home to some of the UK’s Typhoon fighter jets.
Introducing The New TriBeCa Caravan
There is a range of accommodation options at Tattershall Lakes including caravans, lodges, glamping and camping, but 2017 saw the arrival of a kid on the block – the TriBeCa.
Inspired by a New York style loft, the TriBeCa is a caravan – but not as you would know it.
It appeals to families who are looking for somewhere stylish and luxurious to stay on holiday, with bags of extra space and trendy touches.
The large open plan living area has big windows, high roofs and plush extras such as a designer fridge, large flatscreen TV and sound bar.
Parents who want to relax on holiday will love the master bedroom with its fluffy carpets, thick curtains, kingsize bed, free standing wardrobes – and the best bit of all – a freestanding bath tub!
There is even a hidden TV behind a mirror above the bath so you can catch up on your favourite show whilst taking a dip (can you tell, the TriBeCa was designed by women?!)
The Kids Room
The Kids Room is one of the TriBeCa’s best bits. This awe inspiring room is a dream come true for kids with its forest theme, 3 bunk beds and even a den. Each bunk has its own TV, and there is plenty of room on the floor for the kids to play with their toys.
The Hot Tub
Some TriBeCa caravans have their own hot tub which is a wonderful way to relax after a busy day having fun. Just remember to take your swimming stuff!
Reasons Why Families With Babies And Toddlers Will Love The TriBeCa
If you go on holiday with a baby or toddler, you can find that you spend a lot of time in your accommodation due to early bedtimes, naps etc. However, the TriBeCa is a haven where you will want to spend time, and where amazingly, you will be able to relax too.
After bedtime, choose from either a soak in the free standing bath tub, or watching the stars from the privacy of your own hot tub before sinking into bed.
Plus, the extra space in the TriBeCa means that you don’t all need to live on top of each other either – particularly important when you have loads of baby and toddler paraphernalia, which takes up loads of space.

Tattershall Lakes is brilliant for babies and toddlers. There is so much to do onsite, and you can combine this with exploring the local area.

Toddlers will love playing in the splash park overlooking the lakes with its squirting fountains, cascades, jets and spouts.

15 minutes pedalo hire starts from £5
There is a cycle trail around the park which is fun way to explore the whole park. Cars are allowed inside the park, so it isn’t traffic free, but Lincolnshire is very flat so cycling is an easy to way to get around.
Bike hire is available from £4 for an hour or £32 for a week.
Indoor Swimming Pool
