Excellent Site. Highly recommend

This was our first visit to a CL site and we chose The Paddocks as it wasn’t too far from home and we wanted to try out our new caravan. We could not fault the site. Very clean and well maintained. The owner made himself known to us having given us time to set up and get settled. A really friendly guy. The place was ideal for dog owners as there was a well kept field directly in front of the caravan for late night/early mornings walks. There were also other fields (part of the site) which were good for daytime hours. The pitch sizes were a really good size too. There was room for our transporter plus another two cars on the hard standing plus plenty of grass for the awning. We will definitely be back in a few weeks time. Highly Recommend.

Lovely CL

Lovely little laid back site behind electric gates. Good sized flat pitches with services close by. All pitches are hard standing with lots of room for any large van, awning and car with room to spare. Owner is very laid back and helpful. We live very close to the site and stopped a couple of nights to try out our new van, never knew such a lovely little CL site was right on our doorstep. Very good location with easy access to the local village with many shops, local town is 3miles away and Leicester is 9miles.

Informative visit to the area as we had an interest in Richard III

We had the pleasure of a 4 night visit to this well laid out and tidy CL Site which was ideal for our visits to Bosworth Field and Leicester Cathedral including the Richard III visitor centre as was the reason for visiting this area. The Site is well laid out hard standing with water and waste facilities nearby and sits in an area of beautiful views of the country side. There are a number of wooden cabins which have there own hot tubs for visitors who wish to hire them they do not own motorhomes or caravans. The extra part of a security entrance was a plus to ensure the safety of everyone on the site and the owner was a friendly face indeed. The bus stop 10mins along the road was ideal for catching the bus into Leicester to visit the City and all the various sites to see over and above our vested interest in Richard III. What may be considered in the future is a hut with a toilet and shower facility which we have found a a number of CL sites which we have visited. I would not hesitate to visit this site in the future due to its location and tidiness.

Great second stay

Second stay at the Paddocks as is local to us .Was expecting to see some puddles of water due to the horrendous weather of late, but all five pitches were dry and the paddock area was not boggy either, the dogs loved it. Peaceful and lovely view, all of the amenities were top drawer. Will be coming here again and again.

Great CL, don't all visit at once.

Access is easy from the A47 (though using post code the sat nav was a little off in finding the entrance). The main gates are key code locked so the site is secure when there's no one about. Friendly welcome. The pitches are good sized hardstanding with pleasant views over the field. We will use it again.
