 The tea room and the shop were both, very good. Sadly it went down hill from there.

We had a lakeside pitch which was hard standing and large, if you are going to the trouble and expense of laying a hard standing, at least make it level.

Showers were clean but very dated. The fishing itself was not bad but some of the rules, I had never come across in over 50 years of fishing.

The one that really got me was, only one rod per person, why? Even one of the wardens I asked, didn't know why.

It's a shame, a nice site has been spoilt by some petty rules.

We will not return.

 Great site. very quiet and adults only which was fab,

Electric hook up and water at each pitch, the hard standing area was a bit firm, I had issues pegging my awning down,

But other than that it was great, showers and toilets were also very nice,

Lovely flat 3k walk into market Harbourgh,

Couldn't be better.

 Needs showers updating

OK not the best of fishing but OK on lake pitchers,

Not a lot going on

Hardstanding pitches are hard need a jack hammer to pitch a awning.

Over all disappointed.

Reviewer: Andialcock 3 reviews from this member

 The entrance to the site is a long driveway with a few potholes along the way. When you reach the site it gives you the impression that it's quite large but it's split into four sections. One on the right before the bridge is a row of pitches which do not look very inviting in my opinion.

On the other side of the road before the bridge is one of the lakes with three log cabins over looking the lake, they are in a prime position, lovely spot. Beyond these are three touring pitches but it looks like they are either permanent vans there or seasonal pitches. The lake has huge carp in there, good for fishing in the late afternoon/evening.

The area we were pitched is over the bridge, this area is set out into two separate areas with a hedge in-between, the futher one away has two fishing pegs on your pitch and you pay for these with your pitch fees. It feels like you have the cheap seats and the posh pitches are separated by the hedge, a bit like being on an aeroplane when there's a curtain hiding the economy seats from first class.

We didn't have a view from our pitch unless you count the toilet/shower block and the hedge. There are a lot of permanent vans/motorhomes on this site. All of the pitches are serviced though which is good if you have the right equipment.

The toilet/showers are quite good, really large rooms with a toilet and sink along with the shower, although the lock can be a bit tricky sometimes.

Not sure if we'd come back though as if you can't get an extra large pitch with the fishing pegs there's not much to look at when sitting in or around your van. We paid £25 a night for our pitch but the pitches with the fishing are more expensive.

 Huge spacious pitch right by the lake. Fabulous place.

Hubby enjoyed the fishing. Wish we'd booked more nights.

Cant comment on facilities as out of use.

Will come back again

 We have visited this site on several occasions. Being local we decided to stay a night to have a go at putting up a new awning. The site is adjacent to the Brampton Valley Way, which is ideal for walking and cycling and within easy reach of all the facilities for Market Harborough, which is a couple of miles away.

The campsite has basic facilities with two toilets/showers for male and females, although no washing-up facilities. There are several areas to pitch - we were in the Wellington area, which overlooks a fishing lake. It is apparent there are some long-stay units pitched on the site.

There is a small café on site which welcomes campers and those using the Brampton Valley Way. We did not visit the café so cannot comment on the food/drink.

For us this is a site that we use frequently due to it being local and it not having a minimum 2-night stay over the weekend.

 My second review of Waterloo Farm.

My last review wasn't great and I gave the site a 7/10. In the main this was due to the general scruffy and untidy nature of the site particularly around the toilets/shower block and the entrance to the site itself.

I'm pleased to say that this has now been tidied up considerably and looks 100 times better. The toilets were cleaned on a regular basis during our 5 night stay. Sure there is work which could still be done but it doesn't detract from what a great little fishing site this is.

The site is definitely heading in the right direction.

 Mature couple no children-we spent 2 nights here as OH was taking part in a tank experience at Armourgeddon in nearby husbands bosworth (highly recommended).

The people running the site are very friendly and showed us to our pitch. The tearoom looks extremely clean and very inviting. The rest of the place looks run down and like nobody cares.

But we had hard standing/electric hookup/water on the pitch so adequate for the time we spent there. No facilities for children even in the 'family' area. As said before a bit of investment would pay dividends.

Nearby foxton locks a great tourist attraction-cold beer on a warm day by a flight of locks-what's not to like?

I think we were very lucky that our time here was hot and sunny-everything looks better then.

 A great weekend spoilt by relentless noise from the the geese!

In February there were a few geese, not ideal. There has since been an invasion of two types of geese who are fighting amongst themselves and each other the result is relentless screeching all hours of the day and early morning!

All the campers were fed up with it and the owners need to do something about the problem as they are all breading and the problem will become far worse very soon. I am sorry to say that we won't be returning to a site we both really like until it's sorted out.
