 Just had 5 nights there last week. The entrance is now signed. There are two drives take the one on the right. It is narrow but not very long and there are passing places.

Pull up in the car park and go to the garden centre reception to book in. Here you will be given an information pack with the gate code. Be aware it is a tumbler lock so in the dark the numbers are difficult to see.

The field with the 5 cl pitches is now being extended by another 15 pitches. The owner is in talks with the CAMC to retain the 5 cl pitches which are at the top.

The pitches a very large and divided by high hedges for privacy. The field, being enclosed, is well sheltered and a nice touch is that there is a pathway to a side entrance of the garden centre restaurant.

Toilets are available here during opening hours. The big plus for this site is its location.

Just outside the entrance there are buses to Melton Mowbray, 2 miles downhill, Leicester, Loughborough also to Grantham and Oakham with a change in Melton. So it is ideal for the local towns without taking the car.

All in all we enjoyed the site very much and hope it retains its cl status.

 On arrival the location was a little confusing. So do not follow sat nav to J&L camp site, go to the garden centre.

Nice friendly staff,

Lovely camp site, can use toilet in garden centre.

The restaurant food smells amazing, especially at breakfast time.

Found some lovely cycling areas, bit hilly but worth it.

Overall had a nice chilled time, and would return. 👍👍

 The camp site is very well maintained and each large bay is separated by bushes making it very private.

The only downside was the chain with the padlock. Each of the three gates were locked when we arrived at 6pm.

We went out to see friends later and trying to see the numbers on the padlocks in the dark was extremely difficult.

One gate to the actual site was always locked whilst the other two were open during the opening times of the garden centre.

As there were road traffic delays with a serious accident we had to telephone to advise that we would not be able to arrive before 5. 00pm. We were then emailed with the codes for the three gates.

There is one drinking water tap and chemical waste disposal and refuse bins.

Reviewer: Debbie 1 review from this member

 Loved the location. Bus stopped at gate. Nice walk to the beach.

Didn't like there was nowhere for us to empty grey waste water in our motor home.

The site could have done with a few more facilities like that dotted around

Reviewer: Pendywooley 35 reviews from this member

 Booked for one night. Friendly welcome within the garden centre, which has a back path through to the pitches. This access is limited to shops opening times, as is use of the toilets - 2 unisex. This was not made clear on booking.

The entrance to the field is quite narrow as previously mentioned, don't think an 8 footer would make it, did remark on it as we booked out. Also our unit is a 4 berth so swinging onto the pitch was made awkward by log bollards marking the boundary for the field, just another 2ft away would make it easier.

OH had breakfast there which was good value.

 We joined friends here for a long weekend. Good location for exploring the local area of Oakham, Melton Mowbray and Loughborough.

Easy to find on A606. Well signposted being part of The Grange Garden Centre near Asfordby. The CL is on a sloping site although the 5 pitches are on gravel based hard standings. Nearly installed gates to the CL are not as wide as you might want making it slightly awkward for passing through.

CL has added benefit of being part of a garden centre business and offers a great restaurant between the hours of 9-5. Great food on offer daily from the largest sharing scones I have ever seen, all forms of cakes and good breakfast selection. Sunday lunch is excellent also.

Grassy area for kids to play on. Very quite when we were there and one we would definitely recommend and use again.
