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.

Good campsite for cycling and walking base. Parked on hardstanding with great views and appreciated the indoor washing-up facilities and clean showers and toilets. Quiet site with two pubs within walking distance. Friendly owners provided good local information. We recommend visiting the local airfield on Sundays to see the cold war jet collection, Bruntingthorpe Aviation, and a walk to Market Harborough via Foxton locks and the canal towpath, then getting the 44 bus back to Saddington (only about a mile back to the campsite)

We were looking for a peaceful weekend and this little site ticked all the boxes. Very nice welcome from Maurice who was very helpful and showed us all the facilities he even offered to pick us up from Foxton Locks if we found the walk too much when his partner got back she came and gave us a warm welcome too.

Very quiet, peaceful and secluded site, facilities immaculate and an abundance of free hot water in the showers. Electric by meter however 5 covered all we needed for the two nights including having the heating on.

Lots of signed walks to do and the Locks very good to visit, however were very busy at the weekend, next time we will visit them in the week.

Excellent value for money.

After a warm welcome from Wendy we were able to select a pitch from those available and had a guided tour of the site and facilities. The shower block was still under construction but immaculately clean and the showers proved to be excellent. The pitches were level and well maintained and hook-up was straightforward. Wendy and Maurice could not have been more helpful and welcoming. We opted to stay for an extra night because we loved the site and all it offered.

Uninterrupted views over the rolling hills of Leicestershire, sunsets and stars were our idea of perfection. By day we enjoyed walks around the area and along the Leicester arm of the Grand Union canal including the impressive flight of locks at Foxton. In the evening we barbecued in a rural idyll!

We ate on site every day as the views were unsurpassable but there were a number of pubs fairly nearby and even an Indian Restaurant that delivers to the site!

We will return! This is exactly what a CS should be.
