Why stay here ...

A peaceful and scenic site, away from major roads, on a small working farm. Although close to M1/M6 and A14 roads the site is secluded and set in Leicestershire, on the borders of Northamptonshire and Warwickshire, so in a prime position to visit the sites of three counties.

The site is located  next to the farmhouse in an old orchard with a very sunny aspect and still contains an apple and  plum tree. There are 5 generous hardstanding pitches, all  with  electrical hook-ups and a wide curved roadway through the site. The site is accessed from a small tarmac country road through 18 foot wide double gates. A friendly horse and donkey live next to the site and the Red Poll cattle roam the fields within view.

The farm is half a mile from the village of Walcote, and the local pub is within walking distance once it re-opens in July 2016. There are a range of pubs and restaurants within a short drive. There are local supermarkets and takeaways in nearby Lutterworth, 3 miles, with deliveries often being made to the site!

The area is perfect for walking, relaxing or visiting local attractions like Foxton Locks, The Richard III exhibition in Leicester, Warwick Castle, Rugby, Market Harborough or even Stanford Hall 2 miles away.

The farm also has a self-contained Bed and Breakfast unit with discounted rates for guests with friends on the caravan site or CC members, making it a viable option for a family gathering.     

Adults/Children/pets welcome.

Stay for a night or two to break your journey or enjoy the peace and quiet for a longer relaxing stay. 

Please note some pitches are slightly sloping and leveling blocks maybe required, please check when booking.

Lovely quiet site, close to M1

Perfect little spot. Good hard standing and utilities easily available. Working farm seperate to CL but next to field with donkeys & a horse. Easily accessable from M1 but quiet on site. Lovely area for walking & cycling. Pub short walk but we didn’t try it. We cycled 3miles to Swinford to The Chequers, very hospitable & lovely beer garden. Many other good pubs in the area apparantely. Stanford Hall easy walk. £15 inc. EHU.

Lovely peaceful site

Would highly recommend this site to anyone thinking of staying in the area or breaking their journey. A lovely peaceful site situated on a quiet country lane. We were here for a couple of weeks and were warmly welcomed by Owners Marie and John, and of course 2 donkeys and Dixie (the horse) Small Morrisons petrol station at the end of the road for supplies and village pub. Lovely safe walks nearby which the dogs loved.

Lovely, tranquil setting

Our second visit to Orchard View and it was equally as lovely. This time we were greater by the beautiful cows and their calves in the field in front of us, clearing out the apples from the Orchard to make way for the lovely donkeys. Lots of great walking and cycling in the area- we will be back again for sure.

Absolutely perfect for us

Our first trip out since lockdown was lifted. Loved our four night stay here. Nice walks and peace and quiet. Warm welcome on arrival, keypad secure gate, Services all worked and very clean and tidy. Enjoyed meeting the donkeys and the horse. Small Morrisons in the petrol station at the end of the lane, which was a ten minute walk. You don't need anything else.

Overnight stop

We stayed overnight on a journey south so not able to comment about the surrounding area. The site has good access from a country lane. It has several gravel hardstanding pitches in a slightly sloping orchard. Electric and water easily accessible. Owners were amenable and welcoming and our neighbours, 2 donkeys and a horse, were lovely! The site is very handy for a stopover being close to the M1 but if I wanted to visit this area for any length of time I would happily use this site again. The lane was quiet enough to walk the dogs with wide verges.
