 An idyllic beautifully quiet countryside location with beautiful sunrises and views, with every pitch having their own electric and water taps very close by.

Also, Christopher the proprietor and his wife are very helpful and welcoming.

The beautiful warf is only two minutes walk away in a very pretty village, with a traditional pub and tea room.

All in all a very nice place to relax.

 Lovely, cared for site. Inexpensive - should charge more. The Plough is 10 minute easy walk - good food.

Very relaxed owner who is available if needed and friendly.

If the site has space, there is no rushing you off which makes for a relaxing end to the weekend.

 We. Arrived around midday Chris the owner greeted us the setting is wonderful open fields, site was mowed and well manicured tea room on site.

We walked into Hickling via the fields to the plough pub real ales on tap and a nice cafe opposite the pub both serving food.

Our stay here was made more pleasant by Chris's hospitality and helpful information about the local area.

We will return soon. No toilet due to covid.

 Grove Farm was an excellent site for us with friendly owner. Access was easy and we were pitched on hard standing (but surrounded by grass). Gates secured at night.

Liked the position next to the greenhouse with panoramic views across farm land. Convenient tea room/chocolaterie on site is recommended.

Lovely walk to Hickling basin and canal from the site. Two pubs within walking distance (0. 5m), warm welcome & delicious Sunday Roast at The Plough.

 Great site. Welcomed with plenty of info.

Good walks with the dogs. Wifi worked fine. Plenty of local places to eat and drink.

Exactly as a CL should be.

All good - We will be back.

Reviewer: Jannybabes 2 reviews from this member

 What a little gem. Beautifully maintained, very quiet and the owner Chris very helpful finding us hard standing because of the rain and letting us fill the van using the hose from the green house. Thought it was excellent value for money.

Good dog walk directly out of the site, which can be made into a circular walk taking in Hickling basin. Walk instructions provided by the site.

Can't comment about the facilities as prefer to use our on-board ones.

 This is a lovely cl and very easy to find, it is quite flat and grass is well maintained and large spaces, it is near a road but its not to noisy.

The owner chris was friendly and gave us a key to the gate and then left us to it.

We walked down to hickling wharf and had a pot of tea in the tea room which was lovely and you can walk beside the canal if you want it took us about 20 mins but we don't walk very fast.

Melton mowbray is a lovely litte place with all the shops you could need and a weatherspoons over the road from a carpark.

Would we use this site again yes we would and hope to go back soon

 Stayed here for two gloriously peaceful nights. Lovely owners Chris and Jan who were so kind. Nothing too much trouble.

Adults only. Short walk to tea room by the canal which was a joy. A pub nearby but didnít manage to get to it. Grass and hard standing with water and EHU. Lovely florist opposite and a tea shop due to open shortly with amazing chocolates!

No showers but one clean toilet. Chemical emptying and drive over drain for motorhomes. This is a truly lovely peaceful CL.

We will be back. Thank you Chris.

Reviewer: Eycaravanner 29 reviews from this member

 We stayed here for one night as we had swapped our motorhome for a different one and wanted to test everything whilst being near to the dealer we bought from.

Warm welcome form Chris and helpful advice, The site is adjacent to a country road but we were not disturbed by traffic at all. Easy access to major roads into Leicester and Nottingham.

Note this site does not have a shower, there is a toilet and wash basin only. The site is gated and each pitch has a key for the gate.

One of the nearby pubs has shut but in the opposite direction, a 10 minute walk, in Hickling, is the Plough Inn, we were made very welcome and chose ribs from the menu, they came with chunky slaw, great chips and battered onion rings, absolutely delicious and a generous helping. Great choice of beers and drinks, there is a pizza menu and they do takeaway pizzas, recommend this pub.

There seem to be lots of lovely walks nearby and there is also a tearoom in Hickling. Opposite the pub is Hickling Basin which is part of the Grantham Canal, very pretty with resident ducks and swans
