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.
Lovely site, facilities were good, the welcome was very warm but not intrusive. The barn was an interesting feature, would have been invaluable for tenters if the weather was poor. The addition that we appreciated was the free computer access as we could not get signal for our wifi. Visited Foxton locks, fab BUT we were treated to the most amazing sunset simply siting in the van. We will be back.
