2 night stay at Whatoff Lodge Farm in my VW Camper was chilled; good things were the location, staff, electric hookup, WiFi, showers, washup area, not so good things, well. Not a lot really, bearing in mind this is a busy working farm. Be careful and take it slowly if you have a low camper because the lane up from the main road and the field are a little uneven. This site provides a great base for visiting the Steam Railway nearby (10 mins walk). There is a nice dog friendly pub near the railway station, but shops are a bit further away in Quorn. I'll definitely be returning.

Stayed for 4nights over Easter. We were initially disappointed that we were put into hard standing area outside the camping field. But, then, the rain came! And continued for the whole weekend! Good job we were on hard standing as every field for miles was waterlogged or worse flooded! Looking at previous reviews the field is an old furrowed field. It's really green and well kept and lots of electric points but the furrows are quite big. But you just have work your outfit around them. There is plenty of space.

The owners Alison and her husband were really friendly and attentive.

The facilities are clean, but basically are situated in a converted barn and outhouse. Spidery? a little. It is after all a fully working farm and the caravans are right in the middle of the farm buildings! You have to be ready for tractors and quad bikes going about their business.

The site is ideally located for Leicestershire. Quorn is a lovely village, well blessed with pubs! We visited Leicester to see the university for my daughter and I was really taken at how nice it is, recently invested in and developing. Not at all what I was expecting, but we will be returning!

I would definitely return to this site.

Spent one night on my way back from Huddersfield visiting family, found it on the internet, rang and was booked in. Showers/kitchen etc could do with a bit of TCL. But the water was hot and plentiful. No hardstanding that I could see, so be careful in wet weather as you are parking in a field. Owners very friendly and helpful, lovely peaceful setting, watching horses/sheep/cows doing what they do.

Stayed three nights was the first time I was glad to go home. The toilets, showers, washing up area were very dirty had not been cleaned for a very long time. Beware of the owners dog it went to bite my friend. Had electric hook up but we were in an area for four caravans but they would have been on top of each other.

Just returned from a 2 night stay here [fri & sat]. We last visited here in 2007, and a few improvements have been done since then.

Being only a small CL site, it was'nt too busy, the grass was neatly cut, the toilets, whilst being a little dated are clean & functional, the owners are friendly too.

The showers are free and hot and the cubicles are large enough to get changed in without all your clothes getting wet [they are also situated in their own 'booth'. A nice touch].

There was a little noise from the combine harvester working in the surrounding fields, and a few tractors up & down the lane but this is a working farm, so only to be expected.

The site is handy for the Great Central Railway, and we took a ride on the train for the whole length of the line. Wifey spent a couple of hours 'shopping' in Loughborough, whils I just sat on the Station watching the [steam] trains.

We were joined on Saturday night by friends & enjoyed a few beers and burnt [BBQ'd] sausages

One downside to the weekend was that the friendly owner was [quite rightly] upset that some-one in a Motor Home turned up, spent Saturday night there and sneaked off early sunday morning without paying. Totally despicable, especially from some-one who can actually afford 20k's worth of motor-home [we were in our 1000 Trailer Tent. And 15 for a night is pretty reasonable by my standards]

Will we go back???. Yes, and hopefully it will not be in another 9 years like it was this time.

Reviewer: Marramc48 15 reviews from this member

The owners were not in when we arrived. A very pleasant young lady who was tending her horse told us to site our caravan wherever we wished in the camping field. We entered the camping field without any problem by turning our unit in the yard where we had parked to seek directions and driving through the entrance gate with ease. Being the only unit on site at that time, we sited our unit midway along the long fence adjacent to the buildings and went to visit relatives for the evening.

When we returned about 10pm we encountered an elderly couple with a brand new 4x4 and caravan blocking the entrance. There was also a small motorhome sited in one corner approximately 20 meters away from our our van. After entering the field the elderly gentleman proceeded to site his unit using his motor mover. When we looked outside the following morning, his unit was less than 3 meters from our unit and approximately 15 meters from the motorhome (so much for the convenience of motor movers, they are obviously only as good as the operator)!.

As for the toilets and showers being cheap and cheerful, so are the site fees. I cannot understand people using 5 van sites and expecting 5 star facilities, these can be found (and paid for) at the more commercially developed sites. I would certainly use this well located, quiet and peaceful site in the future. It is also well within walking distance of the Great Central Railway station at Quorn.
