What a find! This is a gorgeous site. Well laid out with plenty of space between pitches, all facing the fabulous sunsets. Owners very friendly and helpful. My husband ordered the full english breakfast and said it was delicious and the best sausages he'd had for a long time. Toilets and showers are spotless and an indoor seating area which would be great if you are camping and it rains.

Will definitely be going back to explore the area more.

Made an emergency call after dark on a Friday night when our plans suddenly changed. Owner could not have been more friendly or welcoming, and even turned lights on so we could find entrance in the dark.

Great welcome on arrival, with lots of useful local information and a tour of site facilities before we set up in a quiet field wit great views. Facilities all clean and well maintained. And all we needed with plenty of hot water.

We would definitely recommend and visit again.

This is the second year we have stayed here but unfortunately for us it will be the last. Whilst the site is genuinely lovely - the views are stunning and both the sunset and sunrise are amazing! - and the facilities are superior to some sites it isn't cheap and the electric charge is a bit of a joke - we can get sites with EHU included for the same price or less. Our main issue is the grass - we have folding camper so long grass under our awning, or cut grass being left lying on the ground is a real issue. We also found it a bit rich to charge for visitors and expect all staying on the site to follow rules but we had two very disturbed nights due to large groups yet nothing was done! The campsite is no longer a CS site with the C&CC and it shows in this case.

Reviewer: Sueper 11 reviews from this member

I cannot praise this little site too much. We used one of the hard standing pitches with hook-up. Fabulous views, very friendly and knowledgeable owner and the facilities were superb. Clean, spacious, warm and excellent adjustable showers. Plenty of walks from the site. The Bell Inn at Gumley was only about an hour slow amble and the food looked very nice, but we had already had our sandwiches at the little reservoir. We stayed here because it is very close to the tank driving range called 'Armourgeddon'. Ideal base for this. The site is very reasonably priced and electricity is paid for separately at the end of the stay, but we had only used £1. 76 after 4 days so it is still an excellent price.

Thank you Wendy for a superb site.

I really enjoyed my 2 nights here. A great little site. Great views of the countryside. Basic but adequate and clean facilities. Very friendly and helpful owners. Adults only.

Location wise was perfect. Leicestershire was more beautiful than I could imagine. Quiet and rural - yet easy to venture to Leicester, Foxton Locks and Market Harborough. I will undoubtedly return in future.

My wife and I (and 1 dog) stayed at the site in our Motor Home the weekend just gone on Saturday, Sunday and Monday night.

We were met by Wendy and Morris who gave us local literature etc and we were shown to our pitch with Ehu. They are very polite, pleasant, helpful people who in general keep the site clean etc.

We agree that the views are great from the site and it is ideally situated to go on some wonderful walks.

We were not so impressed with the site itself, I would guess that on Saturday there were over 30 people and only one shower / Wc in the gents, so these were quite busy.

The washing up area was fairly clean, but a bit smelly, there might have been a drain issue.

The Chemical Disposal Point was disgusting, after removing the wooden cover you were greeted by the previous users’ faeces. I battled on and emptied our toilet and the concrete sides soon filled up, to about an inch from the top, and drained away very slowly.

I was very disappointed on the morning we left when a decision was made to cut the grass in the field we were in! It started at about 0930 when we were trying to have a pleasant breakfast; tea, toast and petrol fumes – nice. I don’t exaggerate when I say that the mower was 20ft away from our Motor Home – the pictures I have, prove it.

A saying ‘you get what you pay for’ is often used by many and I use it myself and therefore in my opinion, I would suggest that £15 pn is more like it, as opposed to £22 pn. This is not very scientific, simply comparing against other sites we have visited very recently. I wasn’t the only person there who was intrigued at the value for money. If the cost pn was £15 then the overall review would be average, with the high cost it is not.

The cost pn in now irrelevant to us as we will not be going back.
