This is the second year we have stayed here but unfortunately for us it will be the last. Whilst the site is genuinely lovely - the views are stunning and both the sunset and sunrise are amazing! - and the facilities are superior to some sites it isn't cheap and the electric charge is a bit of a joke - we can get sites with EHU included for the same price or less. Our main issue is the grass - we have folding camper so long grass under our awning, or cut grass being left lying on the ground is a real issue. We also found it a bit rich to charge for visitors and expect all staying on the site to follow rules but we had two very disturbed nights due to large groups yet nothing was done! The campsite is no longer a CS site with the C&CC and it shows in this case.

I cannot praise this little site too much. We used one of the hard standing pitches with hook-up. Fabulous views, very friendly and knowledgeable owner and the facilities were superb. Clean, spacious, warm and excellent adjustable showers. Plenty of walks from the site. The Bell Inn at Gumley was only about an hour slow amble and the food looked very nice, but we had already had our sandwiches at the little reservoir. We stayed here because it is very close to the tank driving range called 'Armourgeddon'. Ideal base for this. The site is very reasonably priced and electricity is paid for separately at the end of the stay, but we had only used 1. 76 after 4 days so it is still an excellent price.

Thank you Wendy for a superb site.

I really enjoyed my 2 nights here. A great little site. Great views of the countryside. Basic but adequate and clean facilities. Very friendly and helpful owners. Adults only.

Location wise was perfect. Leicestershire was more beautiful than I could imagine. Quiet and rural - yet easy to venture to Leicester, Foxton Locks and Market Harborough. I will undoubtedly return in future.

A great little site. Undoubtedly one of our favourites. We like everything about it. Maurice and Wendy are really friendly hosts. There is a mix of grass and hard standing pitches, mostly with EHU and 'The Barn' is a modern building with toilets, showers, a lounge area with sofas and tables and chairs for eating. Fabulous facilities for a small site. There are lovely views over the surrounding countryside and the sunrises and sunsets are something to behold. The site is quiet and for adults only, which suits us very well. Lots to see and do in the area including walking, birdwatching and the famous Foxton Locks. The Bruntingthorpe airfield with its Cold War Jets collection is only 10 minutes away by car. Several really nice

Pubs in the area with good food and some which allow dogs.

We have just stayed for three nights over Easter. We would probably not usually have have come to a site so close to home (it is only 7 miles from where we live) but we were keen to try out our new motorhome which only arrived a few days ago. I am so glad that we did, for this is a truly lovely site. Maurice and Wendy both made us feel very welcome. The pitches are level, with a mix of grass and hard standing, and EHU. For a CS the facilities are absolutely outstanding! 'The Barn' - a modern building - houses spotlessly clean toilet, shower and washing up facilities. There is also a sitting area, tables and chairs for eating and even a washing machine. The views are lovely. It is a shame that the cloudy weather prevented us from seeing the legendary sunrise and sunset, however this will merely be a pleasure deferred as we are already planning further visits to this great site. After one visit it has gone straight to the top of our list of favourite CS sites.

As other reviews have said Barford Top is a fantastic site. When we visited they had just extended the site onto an adjoining field which had electric hook ups and water taps. It still enjoyed that same marvellous views. On arrival we were greeted by Wendy who gave us a great introduction to the site and packed us full of information with regards to the surrounding area. As this was the first bookings on the new area we did have some issues with the electric hook ups but to give Wendy and Maurice credit there was an electrician on site within 20 minutes to sort out the issue with no further problems on our stay. Wendy even came round with easter eggs for our inconvenience which was nice.

The site is close to some nice pubs and Foxton Locks is a great place to visit. There are dog walks nearby though access is via the road

Our only disappointment was not catching one of the wonderful sunsets enjoyed by the site, but I am sure that will happen on our next visit.
