Why stay here ...

Note: This site will not be taking bookings for 2021 until further notice.

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.

Wow

Dadlington House Farm
Wasn't disappointed. Great welcome from Trish. Secure gated site well away from road. Beautifully kept fully serviced pitches on a spacious site. Canal walks & places of unrest nearby. We'll definitely book again if we're in the area ❤❤❤

Idyllic, quiet and restful location

Dadlington House Farm
First trip out with the caravan since March lockdown and needed a location to visit family and we weren't disappointed - warm welcome from Trish and husband Stan who was beavering away cutting out brambles from the roadside hedgerow. Site was gently sloping with the lower section being a flat field and all were fully serviced pitches.Thoughtfully laid out with loads of space between pitches, beautifully peaceful and quiet. Rubbish disposal point and WC disposal very good and tidy. Wonderful walks along the Ashby Canal with plenty of narrow boat activity and plenty to do in area, any shopping required was a short distance away. Extremely secure site with fully gated entrance - owners on hand if needed. We will definitely be back again very soon and highly recommend this site. All your hard work setting up and maintaining the area is much appreciated. Mike and AnnMarie

Fantastic CL

Dadlington House Farm
Fantastic, peaceful, tranquil site accessed through a long gated drive. Pitches are very well spread in a large flat field and all pitches are fully serviced. This is by far the best laid out CL we have visited and truly shows how good a site can be. Truly blissful weekend stay. The owners of many CLs should pay a visit for inspiration. Steve and Janet

Peace & Tranquillity - an absolute treasure

Dadlington House Farm
First trip out with the caravan since lockdown eased and we weren't disappointed - from the wonderfully warm welcome from Trish on arrival to the lovely flat field and fully serviced pitch. Thoughtfully laid out with loads of space between pitches, and beautifully peaceful and quiet. Wonderful walks along the Ashby Canal watching the narrow boats. Extremely secure site with fully gated entrance - and Trish & Stan were on hand if needed. We had such a lovely weekend that we stayed an extra night to make the most of the tranquil setting - will definitely be back again and highly recommend this site.....although not too much as we don't want it to be fully booked when we next want to visit!! Good luck Trish and hope you survive this awful year as all the reviews add up to a very impressive venture. Mel & Paul (and Megan, Fern & Bella) xx

First time out since the Pandemic

Dadlington House Farm
As the title says,been waiting so long for this and what can i say,so pleased we choose this cl for short visit (4 nights). One of the best presented sites we have visited.Fully serviced pitches and easy access to large field with well cut/looked after grass.Toilet waste disposal very clean and modern, recycling at the entrance to site.Site very secure with electric gates and camera monitoring drive. Trish welcomed us on arrival and visited us with husband Stan one evening while doing the rounds. Couldn't fault this cl and will definitely be back soon.Good Luck Brian&Brenda Northants.
