Spent one night on my way back from Huddersfield visiting family, found it on the internet, rang and was booked in. Showers/kitchen etc could do with a bit of TCL. But the water was hot and plentiful. No hardstanding that I could see, so be careful in wet weather as you are parking in a field. Owners very friendly and helpful, lovely peaceful setting, watching horses/sheep/cows doing what they do.

Stayed three nights was the first time I was glad to go home. The toilets, showers, washing up area were very dirty had not been cleaned for a very long time. Beware of the owners dog it went to bite my friend. Had electric hook up but we were in an area for four caravans but they would have been on top of each other.

Just returned from a 2 night stay here [fri & sat]. We last visited here in 2007, and a few improvements have been done since then.

Being only a small CL site, it was'nt too busy, the grass was neatly cut, the toilets, whilst being a little dated are clean & functional, the owners are friendly too.

The showers are free and hot and the cubicles are large enough to get changed in without all your clothes getting wet [they are also situated in their own 'booth'. A nice touch].

There was a little noise from the combine harvester working in the surrounding fields, and a few tractors up & down the lane but this is a working farm, so only to be expected.

The site is handy for the Great Central Railway, and we took a ride on the train for the whole length of the line. Wifey spent a couple of hours 'shopping' in Loughborough, whils I just sat on the Station watching the [steam] trains.

We were joined on Saturday night by friends & enjoyed a few beers and burnt [BBQ'd] sausages

One downside to the weekend was that the friendly owner was [quite rightly] upset that some-one in a Motor Home turned up, spent Saturday night there and sneaked off early sunday morning without paying. Totally despicable, especially from some-one who can actually afford 20k's worth of motor-home [we were in our 1000 Trailer Tent. And 15 for a night is pretty reasonable by my standards]

Will we go back???. Yes, and hopefully it will not be in another 9 years like it was this time.

Reviewer: Marramc48 15 reviews from this member

The owners were not in when we arrived. A very pleasant young lady who was tending her horse told us to site our caravan wherever we wished in the camping field. We entered the camping field without any problem by turning our unit in the yard where we had parked to seek directions and driving through the entrance gate with ease. Being the only unit on site at that time, we sited our unit midway along the long fence adjacent to the buildings and went to visit relatives for the evening.

When we returned about 10pm we encountered an elderly couple with a brand new 4x4 and caravan blocking the entrance. There was also a small motorhome sited in one corner approximately 20 meters away from our our van. After entering the field the elderly gentleman proceeded to site his unit using his motor mover. When we looked outside the following morning, his unit was less than 3 meters from our unit and approximately 15 meters from the motorhome (so much for the convenience of motor movers, they are obviously only as good as the operator)!.

As for the toilets and showers being cheap and cheerful, so are the site fees. I cannot understand people using 5 van sites and expecting 5 star facilities, these can be found (and paid for) at the more commercially developed sites. I would certainly use this well located, quiet and peaceful site in the future. It is also well within walking distance of the Great Central Railway station at Quorn.

Just had a lovely weekend at Whatoff Lodge farm, we booked for one night and there were 4 units, 3 tents and a caravan.

We were greeted by a lovely lady who showed us around the site, as other reviewers have stated the toilets and showers are nothing to right home about, but were clean and if you want luxury facilities you expect to pay luxury prices.

The owner was very obliging and we did not leave until 6 pm on Sunday at no extra cost.

We definitely will be going back.

We were warmly greeted by campsite owner and shown to the camp field which is all lush grass but uneven (ridge and furrow).

The camp field is part of a working farm, with some noise from heavy plant which whistles through the farmyard - need to keep a good eye on your children's' safety. From time to time, sheep were herded through the camp field.

There are some permanent residents.

Sanitary facilities are woefully inadequate and absolutely filthy.

There was only one (out of 2) showers working when we were there - the second was hanging off the wall while still electrically 'live'.

Campsite is in the countryside, very close to the Quorn Great Central Railway. There are no nearby shops, but there is a restaurant (mains 12 plus)within walking distance.
