Lovely location. Level pitch. Hook up. This was our first trip in a caravan, so slightly nervous, The site owners couldn't have been more helpful. You can only get your caravan onto site from one direction. We tried from the wrong one. The owner came out and directed my husband until we were able to get on site and then very kindly helped us to park and employ all of the services required as we didn't have a clue. Foxton Locks are a must see and Market Harborough is a lovely town. A lovely first experience. Highly recommend.

A wonderful welcome from the moment of booking to arrival. We were worried about arriving late and were advised that Wendy and Maurice would watch out for us. In the end we weren’t too late and we were welcomed with a useful pack of information telling us about local places of interest, good pubs etc. All these ‘top tips’ proved to be right on the money with excellent drinks and service at the local pub and fish and chips from an award winning fish and chip shop. (Once tasted you knew why!)

The facilities we felt were excellent, especially for a small site. Two very clean toilets, one with a shower. There was also a barn with facilities for washing up, charging a phone, pc for looking up places of interest, kettle, and masses of space for relaxing in; if life in your tent or caravan was making you stir crazy. There were also places to sit and eat, both inside and out. I like small sites, quiet and secluded but with the basic facilities. This site is quiet and secluded with charming facilities beyond its size. What’s more you just knew if you hit trouble Wendy and Maurice would be there to support.

The local area is enchanting and we will be back. The narrow roads between Gumley, Laughton and Mowsley were charming. We loved that at one point we had to stop until a local cricket match played an over before we crossed the pitch! Market Harborough was well worth a visit as were Foxton locks.

If you love waking up to a wonderful view, with the full countryside symphony of cockerels, ducks, sheep, cows and birds you will be spoilt. As a last point if you need to stay in contact with the outside world, the phone signals for Vodaphone and O2 were excellent! A Genuine 10/10

What a gem of a site. The best certified site we have stayed on. Wendy & Maurice were so welcoming and so friendly. The site was so pretty, the views were stunning and the sunset was the best we have seen. The facilities were great for a CL site. Great area for walking (either direction you will find a great pub). We will be back soon.

We have just returned from this excellent site after a three night stay. We were greeted by Wendy and Maurice on arrival and made to feel very welcome. The facilities are excellent and the location is stunning. During our stay we encountered brilliant sunshine and several bouts of heavy rain. This did not cause any problems at all as the grass pitches have excellent drainage, and I was pleased to learn that the site is open all year round as we like to go away during the winter months. We will be returning shortly with our daughter and her husband who will be using the equally impressive tent field.

Keep up the good work Wendy and Maurice

A warm welcome, really lovely people,

Only a couple of nights to try out new caravan, all went well, electric tripped once, but was sorted immediately.

Noise from next pitch also sorted immediately.

Good access, level site, well kept, facilities top notch, clean and well maintained.

Didn't get to see the sunset, so were going back again in a few weeks.

Views amazing, definitely well worth a visit, we would recommend, thumbs up, all is good : )

We wanted a site close to home to try out our new caravan, and wanted somewhere quiet too. Adults only, dog friendly, and a lovely warm welcome, we couldn't have asked for more.

Good, clean facilities. We are almost self sufficient in van, but they would be great for anyone in a tent. The Barn is a great idea! Would like to see more sites adopt that idea.

We did see the sunset, although not spectacular at this time of year, but still worth watching.

Would like to visit again in summer and spend longer there.
