Why stay here ...

Set in the heart of rural Leicestershire, surrounded by tranquil green fields with quick access to the charming hamlet of Dadlington and nearby historic town Market Bosworth, Dadlington House Farm offers the idyllic country setting for your next stay.

Accessed down a long private drive with secure gated access, the site provides sizable pitches in 2.5 acres of manicured field, nestled within a larger, 60-acre retired farm. The pitches are level, lawned and provide 16 amp electric, direct water hook-ups, as well as grey waste disposal per pitch. The generous pitches also offer significant privacy, with a 25 metre distance between neighboring pitches, providing ample space for awnings.

The site offers immediate access to public footpaths, meandering country lanes and local canalways, as well as a plethora of fantastic local attractions and amenities. Take a leisurely walk to the local highly recommended restaurant and pub, The Dog and Hedgehog. Or take the short drive to nearby Market Bosworth which boasts an award-winning fish and chip shop, excellent restaurants, takeaways and traditional pubs. At the heart of the town is a small market square where a monthly farmers market is held, or wander through the local park, surrounding streets filled with attractive thatched cottages and Georgian properties.

Hop on a steam train at Shenton Station and enjoy the nostalgia of a bygone era. Do you enjoy watersports? Try your hand at sailing or canoeing at Market Bosworth Water Park. Set adjacent to the water park are also several Carp pools which provide the more serious angler with a quiet location dedicated to fishing. If you enjoy a longer country walk why not take advantage of Dadlington House Farm's excellent location and join the Bosworth Battlefield walk, with panoramic views of the countryside before stopping off at the Bosworth Battlefield Heritage Centre along the way. Richard III, the last king of the House of York was killed in the battle which took place here and Henry Tudor was crowned the first king of the Tudor dynasty, a major turning point in English history.

Immaculate site

As new members and new to 'motor homing' this was our first experience of a CL site. We only live 15 miles away, but it is a peaceful and convenient bolt hole, that I'm sure we'll use again. Trish and Stan were very welcoming and kept the site very clean, tidy and well maintained. We walked along the canal to the nearby café at Sutton Wharf. Tranquil surroundings and relaxing despite the overnight gale.

Fantastic site

Wonderful site, very peaceful and secure. Warm welcome, good communication. Immaculate fully serviced pitches, local pub is really nice and locals friendly. Best toilet disposal facilities we have seen so far. Will definitely be visiting again.

Pristine CL

Received a very warm welcome from Trish who is very friendly and helpful. We had our pick of pitch, each of which has it's own water, drainage and ehu. The site is flat and immaculately kept. I had not come across this type of chemical emptying point before and after Caravanning for many years in the UK and abroad, it was the best I have ever used. Lovely walks directly from the site especially along the canal towpath. The CL is very secure, Trish contacts the day before arrival to give access code and information. Best to look out for Dadlington House Farm sign as there is no CL sign. We will definitely return.

Fantastic

What a great site. We visit this area a lot as we now live in Wales but have family in the area and have now found the perfect place to stay when we visit. Contacted site day before stay as we have had such a wet June and we have a large motorhome and knew it was grass pitches only. Trish and Stan the owners so helpful saying we could use their drive as CL was so wet. Got there early evening Friday and both Trish and Stan so helpful sorting out water/hook up for us. Went to pub in village for dinner which was superb. The site is kept immaculate and we can't wait to go back when we have more seasonal weather. Good luck to Trish and Stan in their new venture it will definately be a great success.
