Reviewer: Mo Lee 2 reviews from this member

 This site is all shale hard standing with electric hook-up and you just pay for the power you use. We paid 9 a night and we used about 2. 50 a day on elec.

It did go down to -1 degrees one night and the water tap was frozen the next day - bit disappointing really as if you run an all year round site surely you should put some effort into lagging and protecting the pipes. A portaloo was also advertised but this was locked - there were no showers and no nice views from the pitches. However the surrounding countryside is lovely and Thrussington is a nice village about 10 mins walk away and both pubs looked nice and did food.

Anyway the site was basically ok and with the bonus of being only a couple of miles from Brooksby Equestrian Centre where I was attending a puppy agility training course. It was not a site we would choose to stay at for just camping but served its purpose to attend the course.

The main big downside for us was that there was nowhere to exercise the dogs and no footpaths leading off the site. We were told we could use the small road beside the campsite!

This was long and straight and you could see vehicles coming but did not exactly suit our needs.

However my partner came too and looked after one of my dogs while I was busy with the puppy and there are several walks and public footpaths from the Equestrian Centre so all worked out ok for us.

 Lovely little campsite, owners very friendly, approachable and relaxed.

Village member very welcoming, lovely views.

We have stayed here on 3 occasions and will definitely be going back yearly at least.

Secure site with key coded gate makes you feel very safe day and night.

Just what you need for a chill out weekend.

 THIS IS ONE LITTLE GEM, we have used this site 4 times now and it always pleases.

It is hidden away and offers all you could want if you are looking for peace and quiet, limited spaces but all good, the owners is a very jolly chap who will pop in and talk to you at any time and nothing is too much trouble, great privacy and gated security. No showers but hey ho, the modern caravan has good facilities on board.

EHU's you only pay for what you use with purchased cards which I think is a very fair way of doing things.

All manor of goodies available including fishing and other outdoor pursuits.

Just a short walk away are 2 great pubs with excellent food etc.

A very short drive to Melton Mowbray sees you stock up with your Pork Pie's too.

 Lovely area, good views and location. Warden on site is friendly and helpful, he even fetched us an extension for the electrical hook up! Electric is by meter, we used around 10 over 3 days and had the heater on in the van for most of that time, it got down to minus 6 one night! No WC or shower on site, think there was a portaloo but this had frozen. Lovely deli in the village and the people are so friendly in the blue star (food nice too). 6 miles to Asda, about 8 to Leicester. Nice walk to Hoby and a lovely pub once there. If you are looking for a basic clean site for a quiet weekend away then this is for you.

 I stayed in this site for one night. The Wardens were very nice and helpful both on the phone and on site. I needed the toilettes and they left the Portable loo available for my use. It was clean and just what I needed. I will definitely will stay there again when I go to visit my friend at Loughborough. The countryside views are lovely, and it is definitely quiet. I can't comment on anything else since I wasn't there long.

 Great site, but do need rock pegs for awning as hardstanding is stoney. Drainage on site good, elson point and refuse points new looking and clean.

No facilities, so need to use your own wc, unless tenting. Electric cards are used if you want to use electric hookup, collected of site manager.

Owners are great and helpful, local pubs (only two) within fifteen mins of site but very nice and friendly. Great views from the campsite and perfect for a weekend break.

We will be going back again this year, perfect for a chilling weekend.

Reviewer: Deeruth 5 reviews from this member

 The previous review covers all the aspects of this small site very well.

However, we were advised by other people staying there not to use the on site toilet as it was 'unpleasant'. I also felt that the pitches were very close together, only just room for the car at the side of the unit and in order not to inconvenience our neighbours we parked our vehicle in front of the caravan. The hardstanding is very uncomfortable to walk across to access the waste facilities. When we booked, we were told the price was 9 a night but it was in fact 10.

On the plus side, the site is very quiet and peaceful, there are beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and it is very conveniently placed for visiting Melton Mowbray, Loughborough and Leicester. We visited Bradgate Park, a lovely country park with long walks on grass or paths. We also visited Loughborough and had an excellent lunch in the Queen's Park cafe and climbed to the top of the carillion.

Reviewer: Stuart l 90 reviews from this member

 Stayed here for a long weekend - 3 nights at end of March.

Site is about 1/2 mile from Thrussington village on a quiet country lane. Entrance is two large metal gates, but these are electrically operated by a code which the owners give you when you book. They do give a real sense of security.

The site itself is just a large area of crushed stone and clinker, with pitches marked by coloured polls. Each of the 18 pitches has an electric hook up. These are operated by prepaid cards which are obtainable from the owners. You do tend to watch the meter so as not to run out!

The owners were friendly although we only saw Mick once. If they don't see you there are arrangements for paying shown on each hook-up. There is a mobile phone number available if you need to contact them.

Facilities are virtually non-existent. There is one portable loo, but it had been out of order for a while according to one of the long term residents. Otherwise there are three water taps and an elsan disposal point.

Thrussington village is a pleasant stroll away with two pubs and a general store. The latter includes a coffee shop. It is closed on Mondays. Both pubs serve meals. The Star's prices were ridiculous; we ate at the Blue Lion - two x two course meals for just under 20. (They only take cash - no cards). It is a justifiably popular place.

There is an hourly bus service to Melton Mowbray and Leicester through the village. (No buses on Sundays or Bank Holidays).

The site is convenient for Leicester city, Charnwood Forest, Great Central Railway, Loughborough (and its university), and close enough to Belvoir. There is some local walking available. We walked across the fields to Hoby - about 2 miles - and had a pleasant break at the Blue Bell Inn there. You can return via Rearsby if you feel energetic.

At 9 a night plus electricity, it is not the world's best value, but we would have no hesitation in going back.

 The small site has a good entrance with a locked gate for which you are given a code.

There is a grass area but most pitches are on gravel hard standing it has electric but you will need your own facilities as there are none. Owner's comment: We have now installed a toilet on site.

A charge is made for your dog but there is only the lane outside to walk it. Owner's comment: Please note, there is no charge for dogs.

The village is within walking distance where there is a pub but we didn't use it.

We visited Melton Mowbray which is a nice little town with a market.

We found this site great for a weekend and would visit again.
