Christmas

Bradgate Caravan Site
We stayed here over the Christmas period for 3 nights From Christmas Eve .The welcome we got was wonderful ,waiting for us at the gate with a cheery wave,we did call when we were 10mins away.We we’re greeted and shown the pitch and even given a lovely box of chocolates and Christmas card.The site is right By Bradgate park ,some great walks .We we were visit g our daughter for Christmas ,but on Boxing Day we had a very enjoyable meal at the Badgers set vintage inn ,which is just a short walk with amazing views on the walk down along the reservoir.Overall this site is in a great little spot and we will be using it again.

Great little site

Bradgate Caravan Site
Great little site, opposite Bradgate park, which is a lovely park. Nice welcome from the owner all facilities you need on a CL. There is some road noise early week day mornings, but it didn't have a major impact (and we were on the winter pitch next the the road, I would imagine of one of the summer pitch it would hardly be noticable). One of the reasons for our visit was to visit the National Space Centre, which is definately worth a visit. Taxi from the site was £15 so pretty reasonable. Will definately be back at some point.

Our first cl site

Bradgate Caravan Site
We wanted a local caravan site to try out our newly renovated caravan and this one met our needs in every way. From the helpfulness and welcome of the owner to the beautiful surroundings and well maintained pitches this was a great introduction to caravanning. As mentioned by other reviewers, there is road noise but not a problem at night. We certainly appreciate landowners like Mr Jee making these cl sites available.

Overnight stay

Bradgate Caravan Site
Thank you Tim for providing a perfect site. All pitches are fully serviced. Proximity to Bradgate Park was just a short walk across the road. Plenty of walking on footpaths across surrounding land. We will definitely be back next year.

A very neat and well run CL.

Bradgate Caravan Site
A very neat and well run CL. The owner met us at the gate and gave us the security code for the gate. The grass had been well maintained. It had been very wet and one campervan left wheel spin marks in the grass when he left. However we had no problem at all. There were 5 small hard standings with EHU. Good dog walks in the woods behind the site and many routes across Bradgate Park which was opposite. The purpose of our stay was to visit the Great Central Railway. Ideal for steam enthusiasts. The owner was always most helpful.
