I love this site for somewhere to go for a couple of nights and that is only 1/2 hour from where we live.

This is the second time that we've been here and love the fact that you can pitch anywhere and campfires are allowed. The little shop is handy too.

I thought the washing up facilities and showers were ok. However on this occasion, the ladies toilets/showers were quite smelly and messy and without toilet paper from at least 4pm on the Saturday until 9am on the Sunday morning, which I don't think is acceptable really.

Having said that I would recommend this site for people wanting a site close to home and just for a couple of nights

I had to write a review on this site as we had such a lovely time. We arrived early as the roads were clear and was happy to sit and wait till the site opened but the gentleman came and opened the office for us, nothing was a problem.

We didn't require electric so was told to just pick our spot. The showers and toilets were spotless. Washing up area was as good as others left it and could have done with slightly hotter water but we used it all the time and was happy. We did not fish the lake but it was nice to walk round in the evening and chat to the fishermen, every one was so friendly.

The biggest disappointment was the weather we so wanted to stay longer but had to cut short our holiday to get the tent down in the dry what a surprise when we were offered a refund for the night we could not stay for. We will be back lovely people to deal with.

We (3 units)visited site may bank holiday 2017 very clean & to say it was very busy it is a quiet site day & night even with children playing games noise levels are not to high, excellent that you can use raised fire pits more sites should allow this, 2 major points that need addressing are the fact the website does not state that as a camper you can only fish half the lake as the other half is for syndicate members only this was disappointing but should be said on the web page or upon booking, 2ndly when the 3 showers in the mens showers are being used at the same time then the water pressure is non existent this needs to be addressed(i did mention to cleaner but got no joy)!

Apart from these 2 points we will use the site again very good, clean, good location, helpful,

The fishing is expensive on top of your pitch fees compared to other sites of similar standing

Pleasant, spacious site with a large fishing lake and lots of farm tracks to walk the dog. There's a small retail area in the reception office which sells a few basics but no shops in walking distance. The site is in a quiet rural location with a gliding club and adventure activity centre nearby (you may hear gunshot or come across quad bikes but it's nothing awful). Nearest pub is The Red Lion at Sibbertoft which has decent food at reasonable prices.

Our hard standing pitch had a nice view over to the lake. However, if we'd been a few pitches the other way we would mainly have had a view of an encampment of 10-12 cars and several tents/gazebo etc. This large group probably weren't meant to have camped there but it's hard to get people to move once they're all set up, I suppose. The warden was on the case. They weren't trouble but did take over a lot of space.

Facilities seemed clean. Staff friendly. Would recommend.

Reviewer: Dibden2015 8 reviews from this member

Starting with the positives:

Large toilet block that was clean on arrival, beautiful lake and large fairly flat camping field. Friendly welcome at reception.

Unfortunately, it was a bank holiday weekend and they had 50 plus pitches all pitched randomly with groups playing ball games bouncing balls off of other people's caravans and cars.

Toilet block has two gents urinals and toilets and three showers, not enough for the numbers present. Several of the soap dispensers were broken. On arrival there were wads of toilet roll stuck to the skylights in the toilets which remained all weekend. Toilets were not cleaned any extra during the weekend meaning most of the time they were quite dirty.

I'm pretty sure that it's a legal requirement to have a fire point but there wasn't one visible on the camping field.

If you intend to go on a quiet weekend then this site is ideal, beautiful and well located, but not on a busy one.

Almost perfect campsite. Everything you need. Straightforward pricing. Pitch where you wish. Restricted around the lake. QUite blustery and exposed around the lake, more shelter amongst the embankments. I wish I had known that they expect arrivals by 5pm. We clearly had put them out by arriving much later which I felt sorry to the owners for. Living on the land they need a break and it must be a hassle having people knock their home at any hour.

Clean toilets and showers. Surprised by how busy this site gets. But as lots of space, not a problem. Shop on site.

The location is in the middle of nowhere on Northamptonshire/ Leicestershire border so a car is needed to get anywhere interesting, unless you are a a keen cyclist. THough as a weekend getaway-it's everything you want and need.

Reviewer: Muddtfunkstarr 16 reviews from this member

A lovely site, with lovely owners which, we have used on many occasion, but sadly won't be returning any time soon as the amount of seemingly unsupervised children running amok spoiled an otherwise lovely campsite. Why do parents seem to find it OK to let their offspring use the toilet/shower block as a playground. I appreciate I sound like an old grump, but it spoiled a much needed weekend break. I guess I'll be looking for Adult only sites for the rest of the summer, as this would appear to be the only way to find peace in the countryside. Parents, although you may enjoy a little bit of down time from your offspring, but please think of others while you relax. We certainly couldn't.

I don't usually leave reviews like this but we had such a fantastic holiday at brook meadow in May I wanted to let people know.

Firstly we stayed in Skylark. The larger of the chalets, which had just had a full refurbishment. The modifications were superb, the number two bedroom with the two single beds is great. We have members of our family coming and going during the stay, and we all had a fantastic time. The views out the glass doors overlooking the lake from the living room were a real plus - whilst enjoying a glass of wine! the facilities are first class, and grounds fantastically well kept, clean and tidy. The staff at the shop and information building were extremely friendly, and helpful throughout our stay. The fishing bailiff was also very friendly, informative and generally a really nice chap.

I am shocked reading an earlier post about the fishing. I am a a very keen fisherman, and regularly go on fishing holidays all around the world but I can honestly say the 5 days fishing I had on the carp lake are well up there with the best I have ever had!

We arrived on the Monday evening, set up a rod and floated a piece of bread on the top. Within an hour - I caught a 20lb common carp! the fishing continued to be great, lost count of the number of carp we were catching each day. With the sun shining they were on the top - and there were so many I joked you could have almost walked across the backs of the carp to the island in the middle of the lake!

To sum up our visit, great facilities, extremely well kept and picturesque grounds, fishing was the best I've experienced in a long long time - thanks brook meadow for a wonderful holiday. We will be back soon

Lovely site with option to camp by lake.

We stopped in the large field and had loads of space for our 2 large tents.

Lots of people on site but all respectful making a very pleasant weekend.

Being allowed to use a fire pit was a bonus.

Staff were friendly and helpful and the facilities were great.

I cannot find anything negative about the site and will definitely visit again.

Just spent two nights on this site and overall it is a very clean and tidy site, also very quiet and tranquil especially at night.

The toilet and shower block is very bright and clean and well heated.

The only two negative points I would raise is that the electrical rating of the EHU's needs upgrading as if any one tries to use kettles and heating etc it trips RCB in the main box (not the RCB on your local hook up point)this takes out about 6 or 7 EHU's and you have to rely on the local warden if he is about or try and contact the office if any one answers this happened four times in an hour after our arrival,

And secondly I think the lake possibly needs restocking as during my two days not one fish was caught and talking to another person on site he had fished for a week and only had one fish.

To conclude we would return to the site but not to fish.
