Why stay here ...

Bawdon Lodge Farm is nestled away in Charnwood Forest; a stunning area of outstanding beauty within Leicestershire. Set in 30 acres of ground consisting of farm buildings and natural walks with a stunning backdrop of fields and woodland including Beacon Hill in the distance and a dairy farm just across the road.

The caravan site is a good base for those looking for a rural retreat. All pitches are located within the farm itself and have access to full electric hook up, running water and recycling and waste disposal points.

We welcome children and dogs on a lead and encourage you to explore the farm and woodlands; take a stroll towards the oak tree (there's a bench at the top!) to get a view of the spectacular surrounding areas and plan your next ramble! There are also excellent walks at Beacon Hill and Bradgate Park.

The farm is ideally located four miles from Loughborough Town Centre with good links to the M1 motorway at J22 and J23.

The season runs from Easter - October - weather dependant. Please have a look at our Bawdon Lodge Farm Facebook page.

Lovely Site

We stayed during April 2021 on the way south. A quiet, friendly site with large level pitches and lovely dog walks on site. Convenient to main routes and excellent WI-FI.

Faultless. An absolute gem.

First rate communication from Richard before we arrived and a warm welcome when we did. Well-spaced pitches in a stunning setting with beautifully landscaped areas and some lovely walks. Very easy access from the motorway and, for us, an introduction to a part of the country which we shall certainly revisit.

Definitely will be back

Booked this CL as a stop-off on the way to Cornwall. Very easy to find, and handy from the M1 and A42. Very warm welcome from Richard, and nice pitches with everything required. Very secure, with codes for both entry and exit. Arrived during Covid: good protection everywhere. The CL is situated in a National Forest scheme, and guests are invited to wander at will through the plantings on specially cut paths. Heaven for the dog; and very relaxing to wander after travelling. We would have loved to give full marks; but some road noise is heard. But would have like to give 4.5, as this is the only negative we could find (and we are fussy travellers). Personally, I always sleep with earplugs; so was not bothered too much! Would recommend this lovely site to anyone. Will be back - thank you.

A lovely peaceful CL

This as an excellent CL. I only live 5 miles away and used a long weekend to get myself familiar with my new 'van. Having said that I have rebooked for a couple of weeks time. I was very impressed with the measures that have been taken to make visitors safe from Corvid19. There are plenty of places to walk the dog without leaving the site. The farm opposite sells milk, bread, yoghurt and some scummy scones. It is also an ideal site for anyone to drop off on their journey north or south on the M1, junctions 22 and 23 are only about 5 miles away. A lovely site that is in an area not often visited but with some great places to visit.

Fantastic stay

After turning up to the wrong place I thought I had booked late last Thursday evening, Pat (Richards) mum, kindly let us stay. She was so welcoming and accommodating. We had the place to ourselves and it is beautiful. Peaceful with lovely walks. Great access to Loughborough for my husband why cycled to work! We will certainly be back. Thank you
