Just returned from a great few days at this site ok it was midweek and we had all the campfield to ourselves but all we wanted was a couple of chilled days doing nothing and that's what we got. Owners was very helpful and was always about should there be a problem. Site was very clean and the fisherman's lodge with the microwave / fridge etc was a godsend as the weather was great.
Showers was always clean and presentable and my family of wife,me and my dog (Doberman) was made to feel welcome we pitched in the field behind the lake leaving the lakeside pitches for the fishing parties but we didnt have to could have pitched anywhere would we return ?? you bet ! just need a few more days off work and we are on our way.
Market harborough about 5 miles away for all the basics etc. Once again well worth a visit.

Just returned from this site, staying there for the Festival of History at nearby Kelmarsh Hall.

Arrived at 2pm on Friday afternoon where we were directed to our pitch by the owner Jasper. The electic hookup pitches are on the rally field, furthest away from the fishing lake. The facilities of two shower / toilet rooms were supplimented by portable toilets, urinals and showers (which I had never seen before!) so little if no waiting at all.

Pitch fees were £15 per night which seems reasonable.

All in all a very good site which provided an enjoyable stay and I would certainly return.

Just come back from a weekend at this site with the kids and we have all enjoyed the stay despite the horendous weather yesterday. We pitched on a non electric location on the lower field by the lake which made a nice view. There is an airfield nearby, this gave us good views of low flying helecopters, props, gliders and even hot air balloons. This was really good to watch while sitting down having a drink, they were not irritating by any means.

Facilities were clean, plenty of hot water. There is also a microwave, fridge and kettle for any to use, hairdryer, iron board, washing machine, book / mags to read. 2 pot washing points. 4 toilets with wash basins. 2 showers, these were being well used and I can imagine that during peak season these would not be enough. Apart for that a well recomended site that we will return to.

A great site really quiet lovely location. My only gripe was the toilets. It was a busy weekend with a VW show nearby.

The toilets could not cope and after a downpour there was mud all over the floors. As well as being unisex I feel four toilets is just not enough.

A car is a must as well as no shop on site. That said I had a relaxing weekend and would go again.

A very nice site, The price (£9 for a myself and a 1 man tent) is a little higher than what I am used to paying for a campsite but it is worth it.  The tent area is next to a lake and is very nice, caravans were in another field behind a hedge.  The grass in the tent area was cut short and well kept.  The site was quiet and away from roads. 
The facilities were located in a wooden hut close to the lake and consisted of two shower rooms with a shower, sink and toilet in each, two further toilets and a small kitchen area.  The controls for the showers are somewhat unusual, to get water you have to turn a knob and then press a push button to get water and then press it every 30 secs or so to keep the shower going.  There were instructions on the wall but I did not notice them so spent some time trying to figure out how to operate the shower.  Even though the shower stops when the push button pops out you need to turn the knob off when you have done otherwise the shower will be cold for the next person.
The kitchen area contained a sink, kettle and microwave and there was also a washing machine and tumble dryer.  To use the washer or dryer, you need to put a £1 coin in a slot which gives you 1 hour.  I went on a Sunday night and the facilities block was empty when I went to it at about 9pm.

I agree with other reviewers that this is a nice secluded site with a very helpful owner and clean facilities.
Pitches - their website says 12 (this site 18), however these are the marked hard-standing ones. There is space for about another 15 more lakeside, plus the rally field part of which has just had installed 6 EHU's for tents (which we were given).
We were told that this was a quiet weekend, with the lakeside area fairly full and only us on the rally field, but it was clear that any more than this would stretch the facilities.
Eating out - the Red Lion at Sibbertoft is up-market, serving very nice food but charging somewhat more because the dishes sauce is called a jus! If you want something more pub meal that restaurant try elsewhere.
Would certainly use the site again but would ensure there were no events on or large parties booked in.

We have just arrived back from 5 nights at Brook Meadow. This is a lovely site, secluded and peaceful. We were impressed by the facilities available, having read some of the other reviews on here we had expected them to be basic and not enough, however the two shower rooms (including toilet and wash hand basin) and the two separate toilets and wash hand basins seemed adequate. The facilities were spotlessly clean, warm and with plenty of hot water. There was a microwave in the fisherman's lodge which was useful there is also a washer and dryer for which there is a small charge.
The view across the lake on a misty morning is breathtaking. Very dog friendly as there is plenty of space to walk them, the owners dog is a friendly little soul who likes visiting people!
The only downside is that you have to drive to be able to get even the most basic provisions like milk and bread, this didn't cause us a major problem and is merely an observation.
Great site to visit either as a single unit or a group of friends together.

Reviewer: Sinbad 17 reviews from this member

Our impressions of the site were coloured by the fact that it was (a) overbooked (b) our neighbours dogs decided to leave their 'dooings' outside our awning!  The showers were modern and relatively clean, considering the number of people there, a mop outside each shower would have been nice then we could have gotten rid of the mud and grass that was all over the floor.
All said, it was a great site, reasonably priced, just too packed full.  Our neighbours seemed to be on a seasonal pitch at the far end of the site on the right, do well to avoid them and the site would be a nicer place all round!

When first pulling onto the site the view of the lake is just wonderful. We found a site near the lake (as most are) and pitched our old tents. One night and a trip to Nottingham later we had a lovely new 4 man tent and we stayed an extra two nights. The site was not as busy as we thought bearing in mind that it was the school hols. There are two showers with toilets within and a newly extended part of the hut had two more toilets built within. Free extras were a kettle and a microwave. Washing machine and tumble dryer were £1 an hour and the hair dryer (used excessively by my girlfriend) was just 20p. The owner, Jasper, is a lovely helpful guy. Very chilled about things. The only two negative things that I can say about the site are 1/potholes on the road 9I told Jasper) and 2/location to shops mean you do need a car. Do email to check the fishing rules before you go. Yes we'll go back as it's a chilled,relaxing place.

The campsite at Brook Meadow is set in idyllic surroundings next door to the village of Sibbertoft. Although it's set within a working farm the camping field is mostly quiet. At the heart is a fishing lake giving picturesque views from many of the pitches and offering nice walks for visitors. The facilities available are two family shower rooms, two toilets, a washing up sink and some kitchen appliances. For the advertised number of pitches, and I suspect for most of the year, this seems to be adequate. The owner was friendly and approachable. We enjoyed our stay at Brook Meadow, it was very relaxing and pleasant. We would certainly look to stay again. Our children had lots of space to play and it seemed a safe envirnonment.

P.S. Part of our stay was during the weekend of a local event. During this time there seemed to be more than 50 units on site. Needless to say the facilities mentioned above were overrun - although the owner laid on extra portaloos and showers. Despite the numbers this didn't detract from an enjoyable visit
