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.

Bawdon Lodge Farm
Lovely stay. Well kept site. Very welcoming and friendly owners. Easy access to site and facilities. Pitches clearly labelled. Great location for exploring the surrounding countryside and area. Walked to Beacon Hill from the campsite. Conveniently placed for main routes north & south.

Lovely Site run by Lovely people, perfect.

Bawdon Lodge Farm
This was our first time staying at Bawdon Lodge Farm but it wont be our last. Bawdon Lodge Farm is local to us (about 10 minutes drive from home) but amazingly we'd never visited before. We have 2 small children and had heard about the Gift / farm shop and woodland trail which is why we we're keen to visit. We thought we'd tie it in with a weekend stay in the Van so booked for a weekend in May 2021. Communication with the owners was faultless prior to our arrival, access was good and pitches clearly labelled so finding the pitch and setting up was a breeze. Water / bins and Elsan point we're all easy to find / clearly labelled and well maintained. It's worth pointing out the water pressure was really good on the drinking water and Elsan point taps. A pet hate of mine is low pressure meaning it takes ages to fill up the Aquaroll, anyway no such problem here you'll be pleased to hear. The owners we're really nice and welcoming and made sure to come and see us once we had arrived. They even helped out bringing my wife some ice so she could enjoy a glass of gin (purchased form the on site shop) which was well needed with 2 little children tearing about the place. The on site gift shop was well stocked with plenty of nice gifts / sweet treats / Gin (Burleighs Gin is made on site) and toys from a separate shop, and across the road is a farm shop selling plenty of locally made and sourced fresh foods and drinks. Bawdon Lodge Farm is worth a visit for these shops alone, but on top of that there's 30 acres of woodland to explore and adventure in (on site) which is great for the children. For a small fee you can take part in the nature trail and if you complete it the kids get a prize, a great way to kill a few hours without leaving the site. The site its self is very well maintained and spotlessly clean and tidy, there's a locked main gate once the shops are closed meaning its very secure. There are so many great foot paths to explore within walking distance from the site and a short drive away is Mount St Bernard's Monastery which has its own shop / gardens and plenty of foot paths. There are also lots of lovely villages and towns nearby with supermarkets / shops etc if you cant get what you need from the on site shops. I can see us visiting Bawdon Lodge Farm CL regularly in the future and we'll be booking to go again in a couple of months time.

Bawdon Lodge Farm
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.

Bawdon Lodge Farm
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.

Bawdon Lodge Farm
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.
